2 Ways To Wear Kmart Amber Tiered Midi Dress | Weekday Wear Link Up

Another new purchase from Kmart! This dress was a delayed impulse buy. I'd spotted it on the way out of Kmart with my sister after some birthday present shopping. I kept thinking about it so next time I put in a Kmart order with some things for the boys I added this dress too, as well as a marigold top I've already shared. For the start of spring it works so well with denim jackets!

What I wore:

Kmart amber tiered midi dress for spring with denim jacket and printed scarf nylon backpack | away from blue

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this scarf with the dress the first time I wore it, the blue heart print works so well with the amber of the dress. It turned into such a warm day and I didn't need both the denim jacket and scarf after school drop off, but since I'd forgotten mozzie repellent for our little walk around our fave trail I decided to keep the jacket on and keep my arms safe from bites! Did end up taking off both the denim jacket and scarf for school pickup though.

As we spent most of the day out on the trail I just used the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack as my bag all day. It's a great bag for holding water bottles and snacks for out on the trail. It popped beautifully with the bright blue against the orange dress too.

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, despite the squinting from the sun 😂 Wore this for Father's Day as I was so eager to wear this dress again quite quickly! Stuck with the denim jacket topper, although picked a darker blue one this time, and I really liked this combination. As it was a warmer day I went with the tassel necklace instead of a scarf, and as there were no extra long walks required I picked Converse instead of my walking shoes. I loved the way Converse looks with this dress, I need to wear it again with Converse in the future!

Again I went with a blue bag with this, my little sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC the boys got me for Mother's Day. Did consider going matchy-matchy with a turquoise bag to match the tassel necklace, but I really liked this greyish blue against the orange dress.


How You Can Wear It:

A bright tiered midi dress is perfect for spring, especially in orange! It's easily layered with a denim jacket - and blue bags are a great accessory choice!

Two Ways To Wear Marigold Orange Tops With Skinny Jeans

I've been wearing a lot more bright colours lately! Loving yellow as always, but there are a lot of cute orange pieces around for spring too and so I put this post together with two ways I've recently worn marigold orange tops. Both with jeans, but with different colour schemes.

What I wore:

sass and bide playman chevron print skinnies double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | away from theblue

awayfromblue Instagram | double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee printed sass and bide playman skinnies and mini mac

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun outfit! These Sass and Bide chevron print skinny jeans make such a statement on their own, but I thought I'd try the marigold tee with them for something really bold. I did end up adding the denim jacket on top too so it wasn't too much together, and it helped keep me cosy as it was quite a windy day! I really like the double denim with such different coloured denim pieces together, I thought it went well and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and necklace tied in with the blue of the jacket. Blue pairs so nicely with orange!

A comfortable jeans and tee outfit for the school run, spending time scootering around with my son and walking Cooper, and then sports in the evening.





What I wore:

marigold orange dolman kmart top with thrifted green skinny jeans Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack

Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold with green skinny jeans and bright blue backpack

TopKmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

A little more of a colourful combination with this recently purchased top! Admittedly when I ordered it online I thought it was more mustard than orange, despite the marigold name for the colour. It's a stunning bright colour though and oh so comfortable - I saw it working well for the rare zoom meetings I have at work where I want to look bright and cheerful but also be comfortable too, the slouchy oversized style and dolman sleeves are just perfect for that.

As it is such a voluminous top I wanted to balance it out with skinny jeans, but also really have fun with the orange colour so I decided to try these thrifted Asos green jeans with it. Such a fun combination!

The daggy sneakers and the practical Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack were because I headed out with the kids for the day, making the most of the nice weather and the pupil free day to explore along our favourite trail again, visit a new one, and just keep the kids out the house for a few hours so hubby could work from home in peace and quiet! I was so glad I had these comfortable shoes, especially on the second trail as my injured knee was really complaining!

May have been a bit overly colourful for hiking around some trails, considering we didn't bump into anyone else but a snake all day, but it was nice to try a new colour combo. And thankfully the snake slithered away quickly!


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. First time I've shared the top on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to weargreen skinny jeans and ombre knit, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack with stripes.



How You Can Wear It:

There are so many different shades of orange around at the moment for spring - it's a really fun colour to wear! You can try it with neutrals like blue denim jackets or black jeans, or go a little bolder and pair it with bright blues and green denim!

Printed Maxi Dresses With Colourful Scarves, Denim Jackets and Balenciaga Bags

Layering up some maxi dresses for a windy winter weekend last month where we attended two different birthday parties. Added ankle boots, denim jackets and some big colourful scarves to keep me cosy outdoors in the wind, and my Balenciaga bags for a bit of colour. Wore some statement earrings for the first time in a while too to feel a little more dressed up!

What I wore:

Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete with louis vuitton shawl and denim jacket | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram layering kmart floral maxi dress for winter brithday party with denim jacket louis vuitton shawl scarf balenciaga bag


Earrings: Colette Joanne teal and gold multi drop disk earrings
Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Knowing how windy it was going to be I added a grey tee over this floral maxi dress to keep me a little warmer. It was nice in the sun, but we spent the birthday party in the shade so we felt the worst of the wind and I was grateful I'd added the tee! The denim jacket wasn't as warm as I'd have liked but the big Louis Vuitton shawl is a wool blend and so was perfect for the breeze. The kids had a great time at the party, although there were definitely too much chocolate and lollies consumed 😂 Sign of a successful party though if you eat too much good food! Plenty of cake to go around too, even though the re-introduced COVID restrictions of 10 people gatherings announced the day before meant it was cut in half, to save some for the other guests who were coming in the afternoon!

I wasn't sure if the tempete blue Balenciaga day bag would be too much blue with this outfit, with the light wash of the denim jacket and the cobalt blue of the scarf, but I think all the blues went really nicely with the blue in the floral print of the dress. Even if the dress was picked up quite a lot in the wind and probably not the best choice for the day!





What I wore:

Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun party! Our last one before the 10 people gathering restriction came into place, as we didn't know until after the party that the restriction had just been put in place that morning with immediate effect! The kids had a blast at a playground we hadn't been to before, running around with their friends and again eating lots of party food. It was nice to meet some of the parents of my kids friends I hadn't spoken too before too, as you can't really talk during the school run when you're trying to keep your distance.

With the blue maxi dress, navy statement earrings and indigo denim jacket this felt a bit too monochrome, so I added some pink accessories to brighten it up a bit! It's not the first time I've worn this hot pink scarf and pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag together before, I really like the combination and pink always works so well with blue.

Despite another windy day I was pretty warm as there was plenty of running around after the kids in the playground, and helping the little one with some things he was just a bit too small for. He gave it a good go though. By the end of the party I was wishing I'd picked different shoes! These ankle boots have the tiniest heel but it was hard work with my injured knee.


How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress can easily be layered up for a cooler day with ankle boots, a denim jacket and a cosy scarf. For an event like a birthday party you can keep it colourful by picking bright layers, either complimenting the colours in the print of the dress like the first outfit, or a contrasting colour like in the second outfit.

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 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:

EarringsA Little Bit of North blue mandala earrings (giveaway prize, close up photo)
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.

Maxi Skirts and Knits: Weekday Wear Link Up!

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing two winter maxi skirt outfits for two very different days! A bright and colourful one for a day outside enjoying the winter sun and a neutral one for working from home.

What I wore:

navy and orange outfit denim jacket cobalt knit ochre maxi skirt winter mum style | away from blue

rust maxi skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | denim jacket cobalt knit orange ochre maxi skirt park mum style outfit winter

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

The knit jumper and the denim jacket together may have been a little bit overkill on a warm winter day, but it was very windy! I felt nice and cosy all layered up, and although I thought I wouldn't need a scarf I did miss it when we were in the shade and the wind picked up! Definitely didn't need any more layers on the sun though, it was quite strong and warm sunshine.

I really liked the colour combo of the cobalt knit with the ochre maxi skirt, I need to wear this again! I thought the pale blue denim biker jacket and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag were great additions to the bright colours.

This maxi skirt is quite light in the wind but it's also pretty voluminous and so never flew up too much thank goodness!

What I wore:

neutral grey embellished knit jumper with black maxi skirt denim jacket micro bedford bag | awayfromblue

black maxi skirt with navy bag Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | embellished grey knit black maxi skirt denim jacket navy micro bedford bag

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I ended up taking this denim jacket off when it warmed up! This pretty embellished knit is one I tend to very sparingly wear as it is so pretty it feels a bit too special for everyday wear, but it was overdue a wear so I got it out again! Paired it simply with the black thrifted maxi skirt and my classic dark blue denim jacket, and again the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This was such a comfortable outfit for running around a lot and also working from home most of the day.

Did the school drop off in the morning and wished I'd added a scarf, but by school pickup time I'd taken off the denim jacket as it was too warm! Took my son to his first in-person specialist appointment since iso! While restrictions had been lifted a few weeks before, some sniffles kept us away from the office and continuing to do our fortnightly session via telehealth. It was so good to be able to go into the office again! Face to face is much more entertaining for a 4 year old than a zoom call, although I'm glad we had those sessions to fall back on over Iso. The benefits of technology!


Last worn: denim jacket, embellished grey knit, black maxi skirt, black Converse, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag (above).

Other ways to weardenim jacket and little black dress, embellished grey knit and shorts, black maxi skirt worn 2 ways, black Converse and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag with green.

Colourful Printed Scarves And Bags With Neutral Dresses, Leggings and Ankle Boots | Weekday Wear Link Up

Today's Weekday Wear Linkup is two dress, leggings and ankle boots outfits with some new scarves I bought last month. The scarves were my only June fashion purchases!

I've been a fan of Fashion Scarf girl for a while (and was lucky enough to be a brand rep a while back!). Being a scarf lover it's hard to not jump on every pretty new scarf she has in stock, but I was a little upset when I missed out on a pretty navy forest one. When it was back in stock again I bought it right away, along with this cute green one, as I don't have any green scarves.

What I wore:

monochrome grey skater dress black cardigan otufit with printed green accessories scarf and mini 5 zip bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | away from the blue


JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl colourful print scarf in green (new purchase)
DressAsos grey skater dress with leggings underneath
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Was quite a busy day when I wore this! We had the school run to do, errands to run and a sneaky opshop visit and then out to the gym in the evening - for my son, not me! - as sports lessons have started back up again. I worried this cardigan was a bit warm through the day, just like last time I wore it, but I was so thankful for it in the evening. The parents observing the class had to step outside the hall to meet the COVID safe limits for the group inside for the entire session, and it was a very cold winter evening! I was really glad I had layered up!

Couldn't resist going a little-matchy matchy with this green scarf and my green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip bag. I thought the green accessories were a nice burst of colour with the neutral grey skater dress, black cardigan, leggings and ankle boots.



Ways To Wear Colourful Bags:






What I wore:

denim jacket bright scarf purple bag striped tee dress leggings ankle boots | awayfromblue

striped tee dress with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum purple | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf (new purchase)
DressAll About Eve striped black tee dress with leggings underneath
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Again I matched my handbag to my scarf here! I decided to pull out some of the pretty purple detail in the scarf with my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB tote bag. I thought that the denim jacket matched the blue in the scarf really nicely too!

This striped tee dress is a great one for summer but it works well in winter too, layered up with the denim jacket, leggings and ankle boots for another busy day. School drop off and pickup, working from home (with a long zoom meeting) and going to the vets to pick up more food for Cooper.

After a bit of a scare on the weekend and an overnight stay at the vests, Cooper needed some speciality vet food and we'd bought one of every brand suggested to find one he liked. Since he loved the first one but not the second I had to do a quick stop at the vets on the way home from school drop off to pick up more of that first kind. And then back home to give him his food and medication and then log on to work. Thankfully he's doing much better now, gave us all quite a scare!




How You Can Wear It:

Summer dresses can work in winter with a few extra layers. Scarves, leggings and ankle boots can add a bit more warmth, and a fun printed scarf can add a lot of colour too. You can try matching the scarf to your bag for even more colour!

2 Ways To Wear Cotton On's The One Stripe Tee & Weekday Wear Linkup

When the cold winter weather arrived in Brisbane the other week I was a little surprised to see that many of the clothes that had fit the boys so well last winter had been outgrown this year! Since I wasn't up to facing the crowds at the stores with so many people not following social distancing guidelines, I put an order in online at Cotton On for them. I had a discount voucher too and given how many tees I've been wearing of late, I used it to snap up this striped "The One" tee for myself. "The One" tee is from the Better Tees range: so it supports sustainably sourced cotton, and includes 20% recycled cotton!

My mum got me a pink tee in this same style for Christmas. I love it, so when I saw it was available in a stripe and on sale I just had to get that too. Not bad for $13.99 ($3.99 if you don't count the $10 rewards voucher I used on it!). It's the first fashion purchase I've made in a couple months and so I was eager to wear it right away. Plus with the schools reopen now I have a reason to leave the house and wear my new tee!


What I wore:

Cotton on the one striped v neck tee with red skinny jeans utility jacket speedy B | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | school run style red skinny jeans printed tee speedy bandouliere bag
Jacket: thrifted black Emerson drawstring waist utility jacket
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight (new purchase)
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a very simple outfit, really an autumn version of this one I wore to a picnic a couple of weeks before, with the extra jacket. I like wearing these thrifted red skinny jeans with stripes, it's a good combo so this was the first outfit that came to mind when I thought about buying this striped tee.

The black drawstring waist jacket I put over the top was an opshopfind too. It was just $1 and so I had to have it! Like the red skinny jeans it's originally from the Emerson brand at Big W too before it was donated.

The only thing I didn't like about this outfit was that the buttons keeping the cuffed sleeves up kept coming undone, but I put that down to me being in a rush that morning to get out the door on time and not taking care to button the sleeves up properly. I hope that wasn't why it was donated! I didn't seem to have those issues the other time I wore the jacket though thankfully.

TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This black maxi skirt, yet another $1 opshop find, was overdue a wear and I knew the plain black would work with this Cotton On striped tee so well. As it was a colder day I added the denim moto jacket, but even with the added colour from the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and jacket this outfit felt like it was missing a little something.

The green necklace was the perfect solution for a little extra touch of colour, and just like the first time I wore this tee I thought it was perfect. Definitely glad I added this to my admittedly large tee collection, I can see why they call it "The One". I'm hoping it's a regular product so I can buy it when it comes out in more colours!

I did think this outfit (like the one above) would have been much better with ankle boots rather than my daggy sneakers, but with the school drop off and then spending time walking around the neighbourhood with my youngest I needed something to support my injured knee.


Last worn: moto denim jacket, green statement necklace, striped tee (above), black maxi skirt, New Balance sneakers (above), Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Other ways to wearmoto denim jacket and tee dress, black maxi skirt at Disneyland, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in monochrome outfit.



Where To Buy Cotton On The One Tee:


You can pickup this tee in v neck or crew neck style.


How To Wear It:

A Striped tee is a wardrobe staple and pairs well with both jeans and maxi skirts. With the neutral black and white stripes, it's easy to add a little more colour to your outfit with colourful accessories or a bright pair of jeans.
