Weekday Wear Linkup! Colourful Cardigans, Scarves and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Day Bag

Today's Weekday Wear Linkup has some outfits I layered up for the end of winter. Still trying to stay a little colourful with my cardigans and scarves.

What I wore:

Tee: Jeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I love blue and yellow together, this mustard cardigan gets worn with blue a lot but it's the first time I've worn it with this navy tee. I added a little extra blue with the Stella McCartney heart print scarf that was a firm favourite this winter, just like last winter.

The neutral grey skinny jeans were an easy choice with the colourful pieces and the tempete Balenciaga day bag was a great mix of blue and grey to tie it all together. Didn't need such a big bag as it was a quiet day: the school run, a little opshopping and then sports in the evening after school pickup, but it just went with my outfit so well.

TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

More muted colours, but still a little bit of mustard and navy! I felt this outfit was very similar to one I've worn before, wearing this dark grey tee with this green printed scarf, green skinny jeans, a cardigan and a blue bag. Slightly different colours this time around with the olive jeans and navy cardigan though.

While I did like the colours in this outfit, it was much too warm! The day was warmer than expected and while I did need the scarf and cardigan on our way home from our evening appointment it was a bit too warm for most of the day. Ended up taking the scarf off while working from home after the school run.

Had to wear these daggy shoes instead of my Converse, I've been trying out a few local trails with the kids and found a nice one but it was a bit uneven which hurt my knee, so I needed these comfortable shoes to support my knee as it was hurting a little from the trail a few days before.



How You Can Wear It:

Winter layers can be colourful! Stick with a neutral like navy and then add other brighter colours like yellow or green with a cardigan or scarf.

Layering Over Maxi Dresses With Cosy Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren Bag

After a little bit of warm weather, the Ekka winds arrived in Brisbane and it started to get chilly again for the end of winter. I decided to add a few extra layers to my maxi dresses to combat the cold winds.

What I wore:

Kmart floral maxi dress layered with cobalt long sleeve tee turquoise scarf ankle boots Darren bag | awayfromblue

Floral maxi dress with Rebecca Minkoff small darren messenger bag in peony pink | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | layering a kmart floral maxi dress with cobalt tee and turquoise scarf pastel pink rebecca minkoff darren bag ankle boots winter

Scarf: Cotton On turquoise pashmina
Tee: thrifted cobalt blue long sleeve tee
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

This was a big day for my eldest boy, as we all gathered to watch him compete for the first time. It was nice restrictions were relaxed so they were able to host a big sporting event, his first one after the restrictions had prevented any this year.

Wanted to be bright and colourful as I sat on the sidelines to support him, and so I wore my fave floral maxi dress, this tiered coral one from Kmart. Added the blue long sleeved tee over the top as I thought it looked better than underneath, and as it was still a little chilly I wore my cosy turquoise pashmina. I thought it matched nicely with the print on the dress and I loved how it popped with the blue tee.

The pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag was picked as it was big enough for my camera and because I hadn't worn it with this coral dress before. It was a nice combo, I'm pleased I gave it a try!






What I wore:

Knit: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much, I felt a little overdressed in this, but also under-dressed for the cold! Unlike the first outfit this was a fairly normal day with the school run and a regular sports class in the evening. By the evening though I was so cold I'd added a coat over this - it was a really chilly day!

Even with the white jumper over this blue printed maxi dress it felt a little too dressed up for such a quiet day, especially as I spent as little time outside in the wind as possible and most of it at home 😂

I did like the colour combo here with the blush pink Darren messenger bag against the blue and white, and I think the white knit broke up the navy printed maxi dress enough that the cobalt Louis Vuitton shawl worked well with it. Just not one of my favourite outfits.


How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress can work in cooler weather with some extra layers. Try adding a knit or long sleeve tee over the top, and don't forget a big cosy blanket scarf!

Yellow and Turquoise With Neutral Skinny Jeans Outfits

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two outfits with similar colour schemes of mustard yellow and turquoise, but two very different resulting outfits. One I needed to layer a little more than the other, as winter draws to an end here in Queensland and we get a mix of warmer and cooler days before spring official starts in September.

What I wore:

turquoise and mustard yellow tee skinny jeans and floral duster kimono outfit | away from the blue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India turquoise moto bag | away from blue





Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India
 

Why I wore it:

With the suddenly warmer weather I wanted to get one of my kimonos out again! This duster one is great as it has longer sleeves that I appreciated doing the school drop off in the morning when it was a bit cooler. It was really warm in the afternoon though and I was glad it's not too thick a fabric!

I've worn it with yellow before, but it's the first time I've paired this mustard tee with it and I really liked the combination. The turquoise Balenciaga first bag is something I've accessorised this kimono with before though, such a fun way to wear even more colour to the already colourful print.

These Nobody Denim skinny jeans are a firm favourite as they go with everything and with the comfortable stretch in them they were perfect for a day of working from home with the school run and an afternoon specialists appointment.






What I wore:

mustard cardigan with monochrome grey skinny jeans and tee outfit, converse, skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

This was a busy day, with an early appointment for my youngest right after school drop off. I had to drive into the city for it and although I know some work places are back it was still busier than I expected on the drive in.

As it was a bit of a chilly morning I took advantage of needing to layer by adding some colourful pieces to an otherwise monochrome outfit. It's the first time I've worn this grey tee and the grey skinny jeans together but they were a great outfit base for the teal and turquoise Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the mustard cardigan. I liked how the turquoise skulls matched the Balenciaga first bag too.


Last wornmustard cardigan, teal skull scarf, grey v neck tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Balenciaga turquoise first bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and blue look great together, and turquoise and mustard are a nice example of that. With a bold colour combo you can keep the rest of your outfit neutral like I did in the second outfit with the monochrome grey, or add even more colour with a bright printed piece like the kimono in the first outfit.

Blue Knits, Black Jeans, Magenta Edie Bag, and Face Masks

Two very similar outfits with blue knits, black skinny jeans and my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag. Oh and some face masks too!

Queensland had a bit of a shock in July when some people lied about where they had been when they returned to the state (to avoid mandatory quarantine) and brought the virus with them from an outbreak in another state. It resulted in our first community cases in months. Previously the cases in Queensland had been contained to people returning to the state and doing their mandatory quarantine and not interacting with the public.

Since our suburb was then made a "restricted area" due to the higher than usual chance of catching the virus, one of our big supermarket brands requested that people wear a face mask in store. Not requiring, just requesting. As I already bought a few masks I decided I'd wear them when I shopped. I usually do all my grocery shopping online now, but with the cases rising in Victoria and the fear of more cases locally, not everything has been in stock and so I've had to go to the supermarket more than I'd like.

I took some pics while wearing the masks as although it may be controversial in some places I think there is no harm in putting on an extra piece of pretty fabric for a quick 15 minute shop to pick up essentials, if it makes the staff and other shoppers feel better. It makes me feel like I'm doing my bit too, although hopefully cases continue to stay low here and I won't be needing to wear masks outside the grocery store!

What I wore:

blue mossman knit with black nobody denim skinny jeans converse Rebecca Minkoff edie magenta bag purple scarf | awayfromblue

ribbed blue knit jumper with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | blue knit, black skinny jeans, purple scarf magenta crossbody bag and matching face mask

Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf
Sweater: thrifted blue Mossman knit jumper
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a mixed day! I'd got my online grocery order earlier in the week but it didn't have everything I needed. One of the things missing was a snack I'd planned to take as a "bring a plate" to socially distant drinks later that evening, so I had to go out to the grocery store that morning when I realised I otherwise had nothing to bring! My baking skills aren't quite good enough to inflict them on non family members yet!

Didn't want to get dressed up just for the evening so wore the same thing all day - this great bright blue cropped knit that works so well with these high waisted Nobody Denim skinny jeans. It's not so good with low waisted jeans! Added a little extra interest with the printed Fashion Scarf Girl scarf and my pink and gold statement earrings. The earrings made my first mask wearing a littler trickier than expected but I got there in the end.

I'd wanted to wear the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag as it is such a fun pop with the blue knit, and I was pleased when I realised that this mask almost matched it!





What I wore:

sass and bide playman printed skinny jeans with cobalt marle knit magenta edie crossbody bag | awayfromblue

cobalt marle knit with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | away from the blue


Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
Top: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit to the one above with the blue knit and black jean combo, although with a warmer morning I didn't need a scarf as I wore this a week later. I wore this pretty gold and marble pendant necklace instead of a scarf, the pinks and purples went nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag even though the necklace is gold and the hardware on the bag is silver.

As I wasn't wearing a scarf I thought I'd wear these printed skinny jeans to add an extra touch of interest - they are really fun but sometimes can be tricky to wear if I try add other prints with them. They work better, like here, as the statement print in the outfit. I did wish I'd worn a scarf in the afternoon when the wild weather blew in, but it was a much warmer morning than expected.

Stopped by my favourite photo taking spot after the school drop off before yet another Woolies trip, so I wore this pretty floral mask. Thankfully even though things have been out of stock when I've made online orders I've been able to get the things I needed in stores when I visit.


How You Can Wear It:

Black and blue look great together! Try a blue knit with black skinny jeans. For an extra pop of colour, try pink accessories too - they go so well with blue and stand out against black jeans.

Yellow, Aqua and Navy: Dresses and Leather Jackets | Weekday Wear Link Up

Two incredibly similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Link Up! Printed navy dresses, yellow scarves, leather jackets, leggings and Converse with my Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

navy stripe tee dress layered up for winter leggings converse leather jacket mustard yellow scarf aqua bag | away from blue

navy striped tee dress, leather jacket with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | mustard scarf, navy stripe tee dress leather jacket and aqua mini mac bag winter colourful accessories

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress with leggings
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun Monday! After the school run I headed out to the local opshops with my youngest boy. Since I'd noticed the big one near us had reopened (it was one of the last to reopen after the virus restrictions) I was eager to go check it out, and a cold Monday sounded like the perfect opportunity. It is the best opshop locally for books, they have a huge range and we spent a lot of time picking our favourites to take home. Hubby and I had an appointment later that day and I was hoping some new books would keep the little one entertained for a bit during that! Of course I picked a few interesting looking ones up for myself too, since my neighbour started a virtual book club over Iso I've gotten back into the habit of reading and I'm always looking for new books to read!

I felt this navy striped tee dress with the black printed leather jacket was a bit dark, the mustard scarf and the aquamarine mini MAC bag were the perfect touches of colour with it to lighten it up! It warmed up much more than I expected and I ended up taking the leather jacket off for most of the day after the school drop off in the morning.


ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Again the same outfit formula with a navy dress, leather jacket, and aqua mini MAC bag and yellow scarf. I loved the colours of this outfit but it felt a little more impractical than the first outfit above. It was a very cold day, so cold that I ended up working from home after the school run with a big fluffy blanket over my legs to keep me warm. I realised when I went to go pick up my son and take him to his appointment in the afternoon that it has just resulted in a very wrinkled dress being covered up all day with a thick blanket! It is a very light dress, just viscose, so it wrinkles a bit more than I'd like sometimes.

I think if I'd have worn this on another day I would have liked it more - it was a fun colour combination, and I really liked all of the pieces together, but it was so cold jeans and a big cosy knit might have been better (and less likely to wrinkle!).



How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and navy go so well together! If you're layering up a navy dress for colder weather with a leather jacket and leggings, why not add a bright yellow scarf for a pop of colour? You can try introduce another bright shade with a handbag too.

Leather Jackets, Skinny Jeans and Colourful Scarves

I haven't worn my leather jackets much this winter. It usually warms up a bit during the day in Brisbane so they have felt a little too heavy, but two colder days in July had me reaching for my leather jackets for the early mornings.

What I wore:

cobalt leahter jacket with grey knit pink colourful scarf and magenta ssass & bide skinny jeans winter SAHM outfit | away from the blue

magenta sass and bide jeans with Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from blue


awayfromtheblue Instagram | cobalt leather jacket pink diamond scarf magenta jeans grey knit winter mum style

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl pretty pink diamond scarf
Jumper: Jeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very colourful outfit! I really liked the combination of a jumper, these magenta skinny jeans and a pink printed scarf last time I wore it. This time around I picked my grey polka dot knit and this multi coloured diamond print scarf. Even if the pink didn't match the magenta of the jeans exactly I really liked this combination! Especially with this bright cobalt leather jacket for an extra bit of warmth on a very cold and windy day. As well as working from home I had some tradies over coming in and out of the house all day, and Cooper had a bath at the groomers. A very busy day!





What I wore:

burgundy and cobalt knit and skinny jeans with leather jacket and scarf converse winter school run outfit | away from blue

Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

We were running a little late this morning and I think that's why my scarf looks like it was thrown on in a hurry - it was 😂 I thought the blue and red in the scarf went nicely with the cobalt knit and burgundy jeans. The black leather jacket didn't stay on long though, by the afternoon both it and the scarf had come off as it was so warm at school pickup time a jumper and jeans were all that were needed. 

The scarf came off pretty quickly in the morning as after school drop off we went to grab some more milk and run a couple of errands. It was cold enough to want the scarf on, but my youngest son who had decided not to wear a jumper was cold and I figured it would be better giving him my scarf than letting him drag my leather jacket on the ground! He did look very cute in it!



How You Can Wear it:

Jeans and a leather jacket is a classic winter outfit combination. You can add a little extra colour with some bright skinny jeans or a colourful scarf, or both!

Maxi Dresses Layered For Winter With Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull

Taking advantage of some warmer winter days to wear my maxi dresses again with a few extra layers. I love Brisbane's warmer winter days when it's a mild 24 degrees Celsius in the middle of the day, but not so much the cold 11-12 degrees overnight and early morning 😂 Both of these outfits felt a little dressed up for some fun events I'd been looking forward to for a while!

What I wore:

black maxi dress and denim jacket with louis vuitton monogram shawl scarf and damier azur neverfull winter | awayfromblue

black maxi dress and Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | black maxi dress, denim jacket, Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull and monogram shawl in bleu

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Dress: black Jeanswest halterneck maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

So excited for this day! I picked my simplest maxi dress, this plain thrifted black one, and we all kinda of matched in our outfits as we had our family photo shoot. We were supposed to have it at the start of the year but then the restrictions hit and it had to be rescheduled. 

Of course this being a halter neck maxi dress it was a little too cold to wear on its own so I added the denim jacket. The blue Louis Vuitton shawl was a bit too warm in the heat of the day but I was thankful for it in the shade and in the colder evening as we had a late afternoon photo session.

Carried my Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag to fit a few extra things in - water bottles and some snacks for the kids to keep their energy levels up. Not that they needed any of that after having a glass of complimentary fruit juice when we arrived 😂 Cooper appreciated the doggy snacks we brought though!

It was so fun to dress up and wear makeup again!





What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Knit: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This outfit was a little more dressed down than the one above, not as much makeup for starters!  Still felt formal enough for a kid's birthday party.  It was our first birthday party after restrictions and it was so good seeing the boys playing with all their friends. This white knit from my mum's wardrobe was actually pretty warm and standing in the back yard in the sun watching the kids on the trampoline I was glad it didn't have full length sleeves. Was just perfect again when it cooled off in the afternoon. And I surprisingly managed to keep the white jumper clean all day!

Added a couple extra accessories with the statement earrings and tassel necklace. The Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag was perfect for taking everything for myself and the boys without worrying about carrying a baby bag too.


Oh and if you've been following along, I completed no buy July again this year, so that's now 6 years I've been avoiding fashion spending in July! It can be tricky with all the sales in that month, but honestly this year we aren't going out much and I'm finding I'm uninspired to shop!



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress can work well on a warmer winter day with the addition of cosy layers. A knit jumper, scarf, or denim jacket can keep you warm and comfortable, and can easily be removed if the day heats up.
