Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Printed Dresses Little Red Micro Avery Bag

For this week's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm wearing two blue printed dresses to the office and accessorising with the cutest red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag. I really like blue and red together!

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I had been planning to wear something more autumnal (it is autumn in Brisbane after all) but we had a crazy heatwave last month so when I had to deal with the heat and humidity I decided I'd pick a nice simple dress. This paisley print French Connection sheath dress is one of my favourites, such a classic style for work in such a fun print.

With the long navy and gold tassel necklace the gold mouse flats were an obvious matchy-matchy choice. The gold accessories complimented the gold hardware on the micro Avery tote bag nicely, and the red bag was such a fun pop of colour with the blue printed dress.


Last worn: Paisley print sheath dress, navy tassel necklace, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

Other ways to wear Paisley print sheath dress in winter, gold mouse flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy Paisley print sheath dress in second trimester, gold mouse flats in third trimester.

Necklace: thrifted red flat bead necklace

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

The next day in the office I went completely matching, and I picked the red necklace to wear with the red micro Avery bag. It's the first time I've worn red with this navy Ikat print dress, it's such a bold and colourful combination and one I enjoy wearing so I found that surprising when I looked through my archives to see other ways I've worn it and none were with red! This dress was purchased a few years after the one above but it's still a very firm favourite - and doesn't require ironing which really makes it a winner!

With the darker colours in the print, I thought the black Walnut Melbourne ballet flats were great accessories with this.

How You Can Wear It:


Picking a monochromatic outfit like a printed dress in one colour and going for a small accessory or two in a contrasting colour is a fun way to try a new colour combination, or to have a new way to wear a tried and true colour combination you already love.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed A-line Skirts and Plain Tees With Marc Jacobs Fran Bag

Another Weekday Wear linkup, and trying something different with my workwear, getting out these pretty printed skirts I haven't worn in a while! While continuing to wear plain tees, a theme that has been a frequent choice on the blog lately 😂

What I wore:

mustard pleated print a-line skirt white tee jersey blazer business casual autumn | awayfromblue

mustard pleated skirt Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Carob brown fran bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | business casual autumn office printed pleated a-line skirt jersey blazer outfit
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This outfit got a lot of love on Instagram and in the office - I don't know why I don't wear this skirt more often! It makes me smile when I wear it and it's great just-below the knee length so it works in the office. I do try pair it with plain tops to let the skirt be the focus of the outfit.

Usually I'll go for black tops with it, but decided to try this white tee with it. Added the blazer on top as it was a little cooler in the morning, and so it dressed up the plain v-neck white tee a little more for the office. When you're having a meeting surrounded by people wearing jeans though it's not really a necessity at my workplace, I just like to try make the outfit a little more formal.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag has been worn with this skirt in the past, but the necklace is new, one of the ones I got from Christmas I just hadn't worn yet. I think this plain tee was the perfect backdrop for it. I really liked this outfit.


Last worn: black jersey blazer, gold earringswhite v-neck tee, mustard printed pleated skirt, black ballet flats, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the necklace.

Other ways to wearblack jersey blazer and jeans, white v-neck tee and floral kimono, mustard printed pleated skirt and graphic tee, black ballet flats and LBD, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag in capsule wardrobe.

TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

Another new accessory! These mini tassel earrings were another Christmas gift, I thought they went quite nicely with the autumnal colours on the silk skirt. Again, I stuck with the outfit formula I loved so much above. A pretty printed skirt, a plain v-neck tee in black this time and a grey jersey blazer.

The blazer wasn't really needed. We had a big meeting in the afternoon which took up almost half the day, but it was an internal one so I didn't need to dress up for clients!

Felt quite warm that day so didn't wear the blazer much in the office anyway.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, black v-neck tee, pendant necklace, leaf print silk skirt, Marc Jacobs mouse flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag (above). First time I've worn the earrings.

Other ways to weargrey jersey blazer and lace skirt, black v-neck tee and olive jeans, leaf print silk skirt with teal, Marc Jacobs mouse flats and wrap dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag and burgundy pants.

Perfect for pregnancyleaf print silk skirt in second trimester, Marc Jacobs mouse flats in second trimester, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag in third trimester.


Printed A-Line Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty a-line printed skirt in a modest knee length is a nice alternative to a pencil skirt for office wear, while still fitting in with business casual dress codes. If you are worried it might look a little too casual, you can always add a blazer on top to look more formal for impromptu last minute meetings.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Wrap Dresses, Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

No April fools here! Just my go-to work outfit formula when I'm feeling uninspired (a printed dress) and another Weekday Wear Linkup at the end of the post!

What I wore:

Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress black blazer regan tote | awayfromblue

llama bag charm, Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram geometric print faux wrap dress jersey blazer rebecca minkoff regan bag
Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Dress: Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Because I wasn't feeling very inspired when thinking up what to wear, I went with this simple faux wrap dress, navy earrings to match the navy bag and black ballet flats to match the blazer. Nice and simple.

A slightly chiller morning with some rain, so I wore my blazer for my commute to work. I usually have a blazer or cardigan with me to battle the cold aircon at work! This faux wrap dress is sleeveless so the blazer was appreciated, especially as it started raining while I took pics. I usually stay away from faux wraps being petite, but this is from the Target Danni Minogue petites's range so hits at the perfect spot!

The necklace was a last minute addition and something I think didn't work that well with the dress - a different length of necklace would have been better.


Last worn: navy tassel earrings, black blazer, silver circle necklace, geometric print faux wrap dress, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearblack blazer and jeans, geometric print faux wrap dress and trench coat, black ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and navy blouse.

Perfect for pregnancyblack blazer in third trimester, geometric print faux wrap dress in second trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan











What I wore:

Atmos&Here Betsy jersey wrap dress in watercolour print, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel navy | away from blue

Atmos&Here Betsy jersey wrap dress in watercolour print rebecca minkoff regan navy bag | awayfromblue instagram
Necklace: M initial silver pendant necklace
DressAtmos&Here Betsy jersey wrap dress in watercolour print
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I had a cardigan in my bag to wear over this short sleeved dress in the office too, but as it was a warmer autumn morning I didn't need it to keep me warm while taking photos.

It's not the first time I've worn this wrap dress with the Regan bag and the camel ballet flats - as I pointed out on Instagram, if a combination works, why change it? I like trying something different when I rewear things, even if it's just changing an accessory, but I'll happily completely copy things I've worn before. Even if I did slightly change the outfit this time by picking a different necklace!


Last worn: silver initial necklace, watercolour print wrap dress, camel flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearwatercolour print wrap dress for a birthday party, camel flats and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and printed shorts.

Perfect for pregnancywatercolour print wrap dress in third trimester, camel flats in third trimester.



Printed Wrap Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed wrap dress is a classic that will never get old! It works perfectly in an office setting and is a simple way to get ready for work when you have little time in the morning. Perfect for those I-don't-know-what-to-wear days.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Frill Sleeve Tees and Pencil Skirts

A new week and a new weekday wear linkup! This week I'm sharing some business casual outfits that are more on the casual side, with frill sleeve tees and pencil skirts. Come link up your weekday wear below!

What I wore:

navy frill sleeve tee with grey pencil skirt yellow beaded statement necklace for the office | awayfromblue

navy tee and Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy with heart tassel bag charm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy frill sleeve tee with tote bag grey pencil skirt and leopard print flats yellow statement necklace
NecklaceStarfish Project Veronica short yellow multi strand necklace
TeeJeanswest Ruby frill sleeve Ric Rac detailed tee in deep iris (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava White leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I really like blue and yellow together, so I when I wanted a statement necklace to help dress up this navy tee a little I settled on this yellow beaded one quite quickly! I really liked the combination. The #summerStyleFile style challenge on Instagram had leopard as the prompt, so I decided to add just a little leopard print with these fun Walnut Melbourne ballet flats. Worked so nicely with the neutral outfit.

I had a pretty quiet day at work - but did have a blazer handy to further dress up my tee in case an unexpected meeting came up. And for when the office aircon got too cold!


Last worn: navy frill sleeve tee, yellow statement necklace, black pencil skirt, leopard print ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote.

Other ways to wearnavy frill sleeve tee with pink shorts, black pencil skirt for YouTube event, leopard print ballet flats and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in winter.

Perfect for pregnancyblack pencil skirt in first trimester, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in third trimester.



In Case You Missed It: I Donated My Hair!


I shared this over on YouTube this weekend, I cut a massive 38 cm off my hair to donate it to Variety (to make wigs for kids with cancer).

I still have quite a backlog of long hair pics to get through before you'll see my shorter locks pop up on the blog.








What I wore:

hot pink frill sleeve tee jeanswest black pencil skirt statement crystal necklace business casual office style | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy with heart tassel bag charm | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | hot pink frill sleeve tee black pencil skirt navy MAB tote bag office style
NecklaceEye Candy LA 'Sasha' statement necklace
TeeJeanswest Ruby frill sleeve tee in fuchsia
Skirt:  Jeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit combo above so much, I wore the same thing again the next day I was in the office. I picked a sparkly crystal statement necklace this time to go with the hot pink frill sleeve tee. I did feel that the pink tee made the necklace a bit muted - the pink crystals blended in a bit. Probably won't wear the two together again, its' a combination that worked better in my head than in person!

I had a bunch of meetings, but they were all virtual ones so my tee was perfectly appropriate. I ended up wearing my blazer for most of the day anyway, we were working in a different area of the office and my desk was right under the aircon vents!


Last worn: pink frill sleeve tee, statement crystal necklace, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote (above).

Other ways to wearpink frill sleeve tee and printed shorts, black pencil skirt and stripes, black ballet flats and printed dress, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote and sheath dress.

Perfect for pregnancyblack pencil skirt in second trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in first trimester.




Frill Sleeve Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A frill sleeve tee is a great twist on a classic tee, while remaining easy to wear. It can be dressed up for a business casual environment with a pencil skirt and statement necklace, or you could add a blazer if your dress code is more formal. It does hide the fun sleeves though!

Weekday Wear Linkup! Wrap Tops and Blue Pencil Skirts With Pink City Bag

Two lovely wrap tops with navy textured pencil skirts with the Weekday Wear Linkup! I picked these wrap tops to wear as I was hunting through my wardrobe for more pieces to donate and I realised I hadn't worn these in a while. They were definitely overdue a wear.

What I wore:

monochrome navy outfit wrap top lace pencil skirt and pink Balenciaga city bag | awayfromblue

blue lace pencil skirt, sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag  | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram navy wrap pencil skirt balenciaga sorbet pink city bag monochrome office outfit
Earrings: Kmart silver tassel earrings
Necklace: M initial silver pendant necklace
TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

This navy wrap top is such a comfortable piece to wear, because I sized up when I bought it as I was pregnant. I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this top and skirt together before, the navy lace works so well with the wrap top.

I added the pink Balenciaga city bag for a little extra burst of colour. I wasn't 100% happy with the shoes though, I think another pair would have worked better, maybe a silver pair like I wore below.


Last worn: navy wrap top, tassel earrings, initial necklace, lace pencil skirt, camel flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Other ways to wearnavy wrap top and shorts, lace pencil skirt in winter, camel flats and olive pants, Balenciaga sorbet city bag and denim shorts.

Perfect for pregnancynavy wrap top in third trimester, lace pencil skirt in second trimester, camel flats in third trimester, Balenciaga sorbet city bag at 37 weeks pregnant.


What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Sorbet City










What I wore:

TopAtmos&Here Nile wrap front jersey tee
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above, I wore a similar outfit the next day I was in the office. I love taking an outfit and following the same formula to create something new without trying too hard! This time around it was my grey jersey wrap top and my navy jacquard pencil skirt. I picked silver flats this time, and liked the outfit a lot more. Surprised to see that this top hasn't been worn in over a year though!

Again I stuck with the pink Balenciaga city bag - it's a fun pop of colour! And swapped the grey earrings for these navy ones instead. While the earrings are gold, I still went with silver necklaces and I don't feel they looked out of place.


Last worn: grey wrap top, navy tassel earrings, star necklace, Silhoupette, jacquard pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag (above).

Wrap Tops Under $50




How You Can Wear It

While wrap tops work great for breastfeeding (and it was the reason why I bought these tops!) they work equally well when you're not breastfeeding. They are a nice alternative to a plain top, and neutral colours like these mean they work well in an office. If you're looking for a wrap top that will do double duty for corporate style, ones with a modesty snap like these ones are a good way to go.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Button Up Tanks And Pencil Skirts With A Little Red Micro Avery Bag

Simple office style with button up tanks and classic pencil skirts for the Weekday Wear Linkup today! I accessorised with my adorable red micro Avery tote bag and bold necklaces for a touch of colour.

A massive thank you to everyone who linked up - we had 45 entries last week!

What I wore:

SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

With the neutral brown button up tank and black pencil skirt and ballet flats, this outfit definitely needed a little colour! My Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag is a firm favourite, an amazing eBay steal that has been getting frequently worn since I bought it. The colourful necklace has a little red in it too so if seemed like a fun touch with the neutral outfit.

I wasn't sure about the big dangly earrings with the statement necklace but I think the neutral gold worked really well. I loved this outfit!

Why I wore it:

Wearing all the red! It was lunar new year so I had to wear my new necklace. It was thrifted, but new-to-me so I figured it counted for something new to wear on the day! I love how this button up tank looks in the office, the collar makes it quite formal, although it works equally well with shorts. I thought the red accessories were a nice touch with it, even if the print on the tank is a little more burgundy.

I also managed to keep this white tank clean when we had a big celebratory team lunch too, which I felt quite proud of! I figured the print would help disguise it if I did spill anything.


Last worn: button up tank, grey pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery (above). First time I've worn the necklace as it was a recent opshop find.
