Grey Skater Dress Layered 2 Different Ways & Weekday Wear Linkup!

This little grey dress is one I frequently pass over for more 'interesting' pieces in my wardrobe at home, but I packed it as I know it goes with everything! I'm wearing it below with my striped duster but some very different outfits - spring in Scotland brought a couple of warmer days in the middle of all the freezing weather!

What I wore:

striped duster with leggings grey skater dress Louis Vuitton speedy converse spring edinburgh cherry blossom

JacketKmart striped maxi cardigan
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was actually a really warm day! Not warm enough for me to go completely bare-armed (this grey skater dress has short sleeves), but warm enough to not need a scarf or thick jacket. I actually began to wonder if I made a mistake packing just scarves and no statement necklaces in my travel wardrobe! I settled with statement earrings instead, I thought the gold was a nice detail against the plain grey dress.

Casual and comfortable for a day exploring Edinburgh - walking up and down the Royal Mile, buying some souvineers, and then visiting Greyfriar's Bobby and Greyfriar's Kirkyard. It's where JK Rowling got a lot of names for Harry Potter - Tom Riddle is buried there. I got to get some photos under the cherry blossom trees I was so admiring, and felt like a proper blogger after doing so (especially as we had to stand in a line to wait for our turn under the trees!).

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've layered this striped duster under my trench coat! With the grey skater dress being short sleeved, I didn't realise how cold my arms would get even under my winter trench coat! And extra layer was needed so this striped duster was worn again, but with a big cosy scarf, completely lined trench coat and ankle boots!

I wore this out for brunch the morning of the wedding.

What I Wore To Stay In A Scottish Castle: Melville Castle Hotel

We attended a wedding while we were in Scotland, in the beautiful Melville castle. Some of the castle has been turned into a hotel, so we decided to splurge a little for our 10 year wedding anniversary and stay overnight there. I highly recommend it!

What I wore:

purple maxi dress coblat louis vuitton scarf as a shawl silver mini mac bag wedding guest outfit melville castle | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | melville castle hotel wedding guest maxi dress outfit spring
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
DressJeanswest Gigi printed maxi dress in shorter length (C/O)
Shoes: NineWest "Quicken" wedges in natural
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage silver charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for the wedding. It is my usual wedding guest outfit, a pretty maxi dress and a comfortable pair of wedges. However I also had a tank layered underneath and full length leggings! 😂 It was only 10 degrees Celsius / 50 Fahrenheit so winter temps for this Aussie!

The Louis Vuitton shawl is wool blend so I tied it in the back to keep it on my shoulders and keep me warm. The venue was perfectly heated though, and aside from feeling a little cold when we stepped out into the stunning gardens to take photos, I didn't miss not having a jacket.

I picked the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC as my bag for the night - while the boys were invited, I didn't carry anything for them as our room was so close by. The bride and groom also made sure the boys were catered for as well, with a giant bag full of multiple activities and toy cars and lollies waiting for each of them when we sat down for dinner. Such a sweet surprise. The ladies bathroom had a hamper full of all the little essentials 'just in case' from the bride too - hair spray, hair ties, bandaids, mints, perfume...etc! So thoughtful! It was an amazing wedding, beautiful venue and such a cute couple!




Last worn: Louis Vuitton shawl, blush tassel earrings, printed halterneck maxi dress, nude wedges, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

What's In My Bag & Review: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC











What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

The morning after the wedding (as another indication of how thoughtful the bride and groom were) we were all invited to celebrate with them in a post-wedding breakfast, going over the best parts of the day before and enjoying some yummy food. I wanted to be a little dressed up for this, so I wore my mustard floral print ruffle dress. Perfect for easy post-wedding dressing (hubby took the boys to bed early as I partied on until the end!) and the long sleeves helped keep me cosy, especially with the camel trench coat over the top.

I mentioned to hubby I wish I'd had more time at the castle - there were so many great spots for photos! I figured this spot from out the front before we hopped into the car and went to church was the easiest though, it's nice to be able to show you the other side of the castle.

I packed lightly for our castle stay, leaving everything else at our main accommodation, so I wore the same earrings and bag as the night before (although we also had the baby bag with us this time).

Printed Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is such an easy outfit, you can glam it up with a pair of wedges or dress it down with ankle boots and a trench coat. A wonderful outfit choice for a weekend away in a Scottish castle!

Cold Weather Layering: Dresses, Printed Scarves and Trench Coats

Living out of a suitcase for 3 weeks and having a capsule wardrobe means repeating outfit formulas often. A dress, ankle boots and then some cosy layers was a frequent go-to in Scotland.

What I wore:

Edinburgh Zoo in May outfit camel trench purple scarf skater dress ankle boots | awayfromblue

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
DressAsos grey skater dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this to visit Edinburgh Zoo with the kids. I expected it to be a little chilly as it's on a hill, but even with all the layers (dress, duster, scarf, trench, fleece lined tights) it was still a really cold day. Pushing the stroller up all of the hills helped keep me warm! 😂 It's not the easiest zoo to take a stroller too!

I was glad I had my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag as it's waterproof at it did sprinkle with rain a few times.

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris (new purchase)
DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for an emotional day, our last full day in Edinburgh as we prepared to say goodbye. It was a cold and wet day so we cancelled our plans to go to the museum and had a long relaxing brunch before browsing a couple of stores for last minute treats to bring home and then starting to pack before our final dinner. We ate at the Melville Inn and the meals were so good! Highly recommend!

I wasn't sure about the Ikat print of the dress with the Mickey Mouse print on the scarf, although the colours are similar the prints are quite different, but I just wanted to wear my new scarf so wore it anyway! With my big trench coat it kept me cosy as we hopped in and out of the car.

Camel Trench Coats Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A trench coat is a great piece for autumn and winter. The one I'm wearing is perfect on even colder days as it's fully lined and oh-so-cosy, but you can invest in a lighter one if you want to wear it on warmer days. A classic camel trench will go with any combination of colours or prints!

Printed Dresses for Church In Cooler Weather

While we visited Scotland in the spring time, the weather was more like a Brisbane winter! I did pack some pretty dresses for those occasions when I wanted to feel a little more pulled-together but had to layer them up a little bit more to make the temperatures bearable. Covering my legs was a must - I packed lots of tights and leggings! These dress outfits were perfect for attending church.

What I wore:

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I did actually have my trench coat over this dress but I took it off for the photos. Thankfully we took these around lunch time when the weather was a bit warmer, but I was still grateful to pop my coat back on after snapping a few shots!

This pretty Ikat print dress is a firm favourite, and being a sheer polyester with a polyester slip underneath it meant extra layers to keep me cosy! I paired it with my fleece lined tights and ankle boots, as well as my purple scarf and big trench coat.

We'd spent the morning at another church so I'd picked this pretty dress to wear. On our way to lunch, we passed this church yard and the gate was open after a recent service. Much to to the surprise of hubby and the boys, I pulled the car over and we ran in for a few quick photos. The church is Liberton Kirk, built in 1815 so over 200 years old! It looks absolutely stunning with the red doors and the greenery growing all over it. So pleased to be able to get some photos there!

30 Ways To Wear A Printed Dress: Zara Shift Dress

NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger with leggings underneath
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

It was a warmer day when I wore this outfit - so I went without a jacket. I picked leggings to keep my legs covered, and the long sleeves on this dress kept my arms covered up from the wind too. It's not just cold in Scotland, it's so windy! Thankfully there wasn't too much wind on this day.

Had to pose under a cherry blossom tree for a photo with my floral dress. #bloggerlife This mustard dress I picked up from Zaful after seeing it on Ruth's blog has gotten more wear than I expected - with the ruffles it's nice for making me feel a bit more dressed up.

Paired with Converse and my trusty Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag, it was an easy outfit for church and then an afternoon BBQ.

Weekday Wear Link Up! Same Outfit, Different Shoes: Edinburgh Castle Outfit

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, showing one of the simplest ways to change up an outfit. Wearing the same pieces but changing the shoes to create two different outfits for two very different days in Scotland.

What I wore:

Edinburgh castle sightseeing outfit cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf monochrome jeans and tee outfit speedy bandouliere | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | what I wore to visit Edinburgh castle monochrome grey jeans and leather jacket cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf

awayfromblue Instagram | tourist hoodie jumping pic at Edinburgh castle pink sweater grey jeans ankle boots

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this outfit to go explore Edinburgh castle with the boys. If you're in Edinburgh, it's a must-see! We frequently walked up to here during our time in Scotland, as you can see from my jumping pic! It's just so photogenic on top of the castle rock. The views you get from the various points inide the castle are stunning too, you can see all over the city and on a clear day like this was you can see right across the Forth to Fife.

As it is a high point in the middle of Edinburgh it can be quite chilly with the wind, so I layered up! My trusty leather jacket with a long sleeve black tee underneath and grey skinny jeans made a great monochromatic outfit with the ankle boots. With all of the black and grey, the Louis Vuitton bleu shawl was a lovely pop of colour and being a wool blend, it helped to keep me cosy.

The boys had a fun day and were eager to tell everyone that they visited an actual castle for the rest of the trip!

Views From Edinburgh Castle and the One O'Clock Gun Firing




I didn't take a lot of video as we went around the castle - too cold to have my camera out much! So it's just under 2 minutes with some of the views from the castle, the beautiful interiors and of course the firing of the famous one o'clock gun.





What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Exactly the same as the outfit above, I just switched the shoes! Instead of my ankle boots I picked Converse for a day in the park with the boys. Such an easy way to change an outfit, just swapping out and accessory, but it made such a difference. Converse are my go-to on cold park days with the boys!

Because I really liked the first outfit I kept it all the same, I love how the cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf pops against the black tee, leather jacket and grey jeans.

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse in second trimester, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag in third trimester.



Grey Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

If you have an outfit you love, wear it again! Everyone re-wears their favourite pieces. If you want to make it slightly different to avoid feeling like you are repeating yourself over and over, swap out an accessory. It can be as simple as changing the shoes you're wearing, or you could change the bag or scarf!

Maxi Dresses With Denim Jackets, Ankle Boots and Cross Body Bags

I love dresses and ankle boots in autumn! And although it's a lot cooler in Brisbane with winter just a few days away, (and I'm freezing away in Scotland!) a light denim jacket was all that was needed on the warmer early autumn days when I wore these outfits.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace

ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

I wore this pretty maxi dress out to brunch with some other Brisbane style Instagrammers. When I first tried on this dress in Jeanswest back in Spring last year I was wearing ankle boots and I loved how it looked - so I am glad with the cooler weather I got to give this combination a wear!

We all caught up for a wonderful brunch at Little and Oliver's on the Bayside and then some of us went and took a few extra photos afterwards. Big thanks to K for taking this shot for me!

I rarely get a chance to wear this vintage Chanel bag so I decided to wear it out since I was kid-free for a rare change! It was a nice accessory with the colourful printed dress.

Why I wore it:

Repeated the outfit formula from above again with different pieces. You can't really see in the pics but I picked my tan ankle boots to go under this tie dye maxi dress with the peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren cross body bag and the same trusty denim jacket.

Couldn't resist being a little matchy-matchy with the blush necklace to match the blush pink bag! Wore this out to church on a rather busy day. The dress was a throw on and go easy outfit.

Maxi Dresses And Kimonos With Ankle Boots And Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

I love layering my maxi dresses up a little for cooler weather. On Brisbane's mild autumn days, a little extra layer is all you need for the cooler mornings and evenings. A kimono is perfect!

What I wore:

Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress with white crochet trim kimono acne pistol ankle boots autumn dinner | awayfromblue

floral maxi dress with Louis Vuitton damier azur MM neverfull tote bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | summer floral maxi dress in autumn with kimono and ankle boots LV neverfull tote
JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono C/O
Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Picked this maxi dress to wear for a family birthday dinner, but with the much cooler evening I knew I'd need an extra layer. I've worn my denim jacket with this maxi dress often, so I thought I'd try something a little different and picked this pretty crochet trim kimono instead. Being white I didn't have to worry about it clashing with the print at all.

I added the Acne pistol ankle boots for a little extra warmth. I tend to stay away from heels now with the boys but I used to wear these all the time pre-babies, they are quite comfortable and I figured dinner was a good way to reintroduce them to my wardrobe - not too much walking at all, haha!

The Louis Vuitton neverfull is a much bigger bag than I needed for dinner but it worked so well with the white kimono I had to give it a wear :)

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: M initial silver pendant necklace
DressJeanswest 'Sierra' embellished black maxi dress (on sale!)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the first outfit so much, I decided to wear something similar to church. I stuck with the Louis Vuitton neverfull tote as it was already filled from the day before and I usually carry a couple of books for the boys to read quietly during the service anyway. Perfect tote for that!

I picked black ankle boots but they kind of blend into the black maxi dress a little! The necklace pick I was happier with - I am sometimes a little unsure what to pair with this dress as it has the embellished neckline, but the sparkly M initial necklace looked great.

It's not the first time I've worn this maxi dress with a kimono, but it is the first time I've paired this floral one with it. I liked the navy with the black, and the cosy kimono kept my shoulders warm in church.

How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress is not just a summer piece - it works well into autumn too with a few more layers! Ankle boots are an obvious choice to keep your feet cosy, and a light kimono can protect against some of the early morning or evening autumn chill in the air.
