Weekday Wear Linkup! Navy Blouses and Colourful Pants Business Casual For Spring

I love a good outfit formula, so for today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two very similar outfits I recently worn to work with colourful pants and classic navy blouses and my slouchy Balenciaga Part Time bag.

What I wore:

Blouse: Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt (new purchase)
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

First wearing of this new navy blouse I picked up in the Target clearance sales! In the last days of the sales things are often reduced to $5, so when I needed a break from the office one lunch time I headed to target in the city to browse the sale. I got this great blouse reduced from $39 to $20 and then the extra 50% off made it $10, not a bad deal! I tried on a few other things but this was the only one that worked. The statement necklace was another new purchase and impulse buy, just $3 from the opshop! September was a month of impulse buying for me.

It's not the first time I've worn these burgundy pants with navy tops, it is a frequent go-to combo! I kept the rest of the accessories simple, with the silver ballet flats, black Balenciaga Part Time bag and metallic necklace, to let the colours be the star of the outfit.

The only thing I did notice with this blouse is that the collar on the back pulls it down quite a bit with the extra weight - as it's a flowy swing style it's not fitted enough to stay in place. I'll need to try tuck it in next time I wear it! It was nice and comfortable for work, and I like the cute piping detail along the sides of the sleeves, even if I did forget to get a good pic of it as I was so busy giving our little doggy guest some pats! She's squeezing in all the pats she can while being dog sat by us before she returns to her family.


Last worn: burgundy pants, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag. First time I've worn the navy blouse and statement necklace as they are both recent purchases.

Other ways to wearburgundy pants for work and weekend, silver ballet flats and pencil skirt, Balenciaga Part Time bag and little black dress.

Perfect for pregnancyburgundy pants in second trimester, silver ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga Part Time bag in second trimester.


30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga Part Time

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first navy blouse, this one is an oldie. I picked it up on sale last year and it's been the best addition to my wardrobe. I like the studded detail for a little extra interest, and the tie at the neckline means that I didn't need to add a necklace with this. I did add my teal earrings though for a little extra colour. With the navy blouse, olive pants and teal earrings I kept the accessories simple again, going with my fave black ballet flats and my Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Just like the outfit above, these olive pants have been worn with navy before, even though it's surprisingly the first time I've worn this blouse and jeans together before. Got to love a business casual environment where people can wear jeans through the week - these olive ones look deceptively like standard pants but have all the comfort of jeans! They are so good at doing double duty for work and SAHM days.

My nails are OPI a good man-darin is hard to find, just like in the outfit above. I felt like getting this bright colour out again for spring.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy blouse is a great neutral option for work, you can pair it with some brightly coloured pants for something a little more colourful in the office. Long sleeves are a good choice too if you work in cold office air conditioning!

Frill Sleeve Tees With Striped Maxi Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Regular and Small Love Bags

Warmer weather at the start of spring was the perfect reason to get these fun frill sleeve tees out again! It seems a little unfair to wear them in cooler weather when the statement sleeves are covered up.  Keeping things simple I wore these tees with two recently thrifted striped maxi skirts.

What I wore:

navy frill sleeve tee with grey striped jersey maxi skirt peach and blush accessories birthday party outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral with peach bracelet stack | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | navy frill sleeve tee striped maxi skirt peach love bag park birthday party mum outfit
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Ruby frill sleeve Ric Rac detailed tee in deep iris (on sale!)
Skirt: thrifted Cotton On navy and grey striped maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus pink and gold bracelet stack on other arm
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I like a bit of matchy-matchy and the navy frill sleeved tee pairs so perfectly with the navy and grey striped maxi skirt.  The peachy Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag was the perfect pop against the neutral navy outfit, especially when worn with the peach and gold bracelet stack.


The beaded necklace is gold and pink but I still think it went nicely with the colours of the outfit, the blush and peach were sweet together. A casual and comfortable outfit for a superhero birthday party in the park. If you look closely at the Instagram pic you might see one of my little superheroes running away 😂

It was a little windy at the park so I did wish I'd added an extra layer to this, especially when standing in the shade, but it was perfect when sitting in the sun. We hadn't been to a party in that park before so weren't expecting the breeze off the water to be so chilly!


Last worn: navy frill sleeve tee, blush and rose gold necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff small love bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much I did my usual and copied the outfit formula to wear again a few days later. I went with a bright pink frill sleeve tee this time, and a vertical stripe maxi skirt.

Swapped out my little peach small Rebecca Minkoff love bag with this regular size one, and added a different pink beaded necklace this time to compliment the pink tee.

Another simple and comfortable outfit I really enjoyed wearing for a quiet day running errands and visiting the library with the boys.

Frill Sleeve Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A plain block colour frill sleeve tee is a nice twist on a standard basic tee and just as easy to wear! Try pairing it with something striped or printed for a little more interest in your outfit. You can match the tee to the print like I have in the first outfit or wear a bright tee with a neutral print like I have in the second outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Two Ways To Wear Kmart Teal Floral Boho Midi Dress

Two ways to wear this beautiful Kmart teal floral print midi dress I picked up on clearance for just $12! A little bit different for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, only one of these outfits was worn during the week, the other on the weekend. Thought it would be interesting to show the different ways I've styled this dress for a weekday in the office and for a kid's birthday party on the weekend.

What I wore:

kmart teal floral midi dress boho for the office with black jersey blazer flats tote bag | awayfrombue

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram spring office outfit kmart teal floral midi dress black blazer brisbane botanic gardens
Earrings: Kmart teal tassel earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress (new purchase)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I bought this dress on impulse, but when I got it home I thought it may work for the office with the modest length and neckline. It's a little more boho than I'd usually wear to work, but I think the black blazer looked perfect with it and I got so many compliments on this in the office! I was so happy to share it was only $12 at Kmart too, haha!

To keep things simple I went with my trusty black ballet flats to wear with the black jersey blazer. These flats have been worn over 100 times and are still going strong!

To try formalise the dress a little more I added this big Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag, it's great for the office with the structured shape. I liked the navy with the teal dress too!


Last worn: black jersey blazer, teal earringsblack ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the dress on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart teal floral print midi dress birthday party outfit with little red Rebecca Minkoff bag sunhat
Hat: Big W bow detail sunhat
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

A very different way to wear this dress! I actually wore this just a few days after the outfit above. I was that eager to wear the dress again, with a 5th birthday party to attend I knew it would be perfect. I wanted the longer sleeves for sun coverage, and the longer length was great for sitting on the floor with the kids as they enjoyed the party food. I did feel that the sunhat and the dress may have been a little too dressy for a backyard birthday party but it was the sunhat or borrowing one of my husband's baseball caps and the sunhat looked a lot better!

As it was a hot day I went with simple gold sandals, and then added a little extra colour to the teal outfit with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag. It was such a well-organised party, the boys and I had a great time. I was so glad I'd worn the hat too, we ended up sitting in the sun and making the most of the beautiful day before the storm blew in.


Last worn: sun hat, Kmart teal floral midi dress (above), rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearsun hat and maxi dress, rose gold sandals and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and printed jeans.

Perfect for pregnancysun hat in second trimester.


Floral Midi Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral midi dress is an easy one and done outfit choice, and the long sleeves mean you don't have to worry about bracelets, but you can still change up the look with accessories! You can try adding a classic blazer and tote bag for the office, and make it work on the weekends too with simple sandals, a mini bag and a sunhat for sun protection.

Spring: Kimonos and Skinny Jeans With Space Dye Tops And Green Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip Bag

Two different skinny jeans and kimonos outfits for two very different days! I'm enjoying the warmer spring weather as I get to wear my kimonos again after passing over them all winter.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag with floral kimono duster | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | Jeanswest Delilah Long Line Kimono in Green Floral with tee and black skinny jeans fashion show spring outfit

EarringsKmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings
Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

This gorgeous green duster kimono was a piece I picked up in the Jeanswest sale back in August. I've been making more of an effort to wear green recently and found out I quite like it, so when I saw this released I knew I was going to snap it up on sale. Even if I did have to visit two stores before I found it, ha! Thought it was the perfect topper for my neutral skinny jeans and tee outfit, and the little emerald green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag compliments it nicely.

I did consider wearing a green statement necklace with this but decided it might be a little too much green! I went with this recently thrifted blue beaded necklace, which matched my navy tassel earrings. The space dye tee was thrifted at the same time too, a great wardrobe basic that still had the tags attached.

Wore this for a relaxed Saturday with a big walk for the dogs, swim lessons and attending a local fashion show. The theme was colours for spring so I felt this green floral kimono was the perfect topper. Was a nice lightweight layer for a windy day, as you can tell from the pics!


Last worn: tassel earrings, blue beaded necklace, space dye tee, black skinny jeans, ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip. First time I've shared the kimono on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearspace dye tee and red jeans, black skinny jeans and knitted jumper, ballet flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip and matching necklace.

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans:  Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In complete contrast to the outfit above, this is a lot darker and not as colourful (even though I'm wearing the same green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag) and a lot cosier! It was also not as relaxing of a day, ha!

It was a really cold morning so I figured I'd better get this knitted poncho / kimono out again to keep me warm at the playground with the kids. I ended up regretting this though when the day heated up, and in the middle of running errands I left it in the car, just too hot!

I love this peplum space dye tee and I thought the effect on it was subtle enough that it looked nice with the print on the kimono. I really liked the outfit, even if I didn't wear the knitted poncho for long! The skinny jeans and Converse were good for all the running around we did. I had a few errands to run and places to visit, and some roadworks meant changing my plans a little with the diversions so I was a bit flustered all morning! As you can see by the setting sun in the pic, didn't even get to take my usual outfit photo in the morning. One of those crazy busy days.

Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A kimono is the perfect topper for those in-between seasons! You can keep it light and airy with a viscose fabric one, or be a little cosier in the colder mornings and evenings with something knitted. A kimono is an easy layer to take off if needed when the weather changes.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed Tanks, Waterfall Cardigans & Grey Pencil Skirts

Wearing some bright tanks into the office for today's Weekday Wear Linkup. The bright colours seemed so perfect for spring, and the cosy cardigans on top were needed in the cooler morning and evening commute.

What I wore:

red cardigan and pencil skirt with Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
TopJeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I really liked all the colours in this outfit! This grey jersey pencil skirt might be a little too casual for some offices, but in my business casual office it works fine, especially with a cute printed top. This leaf print tank is a firm favourite and one of those pieces that looks just as good with shorts as it does with a skirt for the office! The red cardigan matched the red leaves in the print nicely, and added even more colour to the outfit.

With the navy Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag and the navy necklace matching, I decided to throw in just a little extra colour and wear my newly purchased teal earrings with this outfit. I really liked the extra touch of colour and the statement earrings worked well even with the statement necklace.


Last worn: red cardigan, navy beaded necklace, leaf print tank, grey jersey pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the earrings on the blog as they are  a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, just changing up the colours slightly! Again I went for a grey pencil skirt with a cosy cardigan, a navy one this time that matched the Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote nicely. I added some colour to these neutrals with the coral brushstroke striped tank and a turquoise and white beaded necklace. This necklace is another new purchase, an awesome thrift find and a nice way to introduce another colour to my outfit.

Couldn't decide what flats to wear with this so went with this camel pair that go with everything. A simple outfit for a busy day at work.

How You Can Wear It:

A cosy waterfall cardigan in a plain block colour is a nice way to add comfort, warmth and extra colour to your outfit. You can keep it simple and match it to the print in your top, or add a contrasting colour to a bright top like I have in the second outfit.

3 Ways To Wear a Ribbon Scarf (and a Giveaway!)

A special giveaway today! You know I love my scarves so I was very happy when Liberty contacted me to offer me one of her ribbon scarves. I picked the pink one but all are beautiful! Despite my large scarf collection, I've never tried a ribbon scarf before, and I really liked this one.

With help from Shelbee and Liberty, I'm sharing 3 ways you can wear a ribbon scarf, plus how you can win one of your own! There are 3 to giveaway, one for each blog!


What I wore:

BlouseJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I wore this back in September and a longer sleeved top with a scarf and tights may have been a bit overkill for spring (especially with the higher than average temperatures in Brisbane!) but it was my first day back at work after being sick and I wanted to be cosy and warm.

With the neutral black henley top, ballet flats and grey pencil skirt, I used my accessories to add a little colour. This magenta Rebecca Minkoff quilted Edie bag goes so well with the different shades of pink in the ribbon scarf. The scarf kept me cosy and made me smile through the day with the bright colour.

Exactly what you need when starting to feel better - something comfortable to wear and some colourful accessories to make you smile!


Last worn: black henley, grey pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearblack henley and a-line skirt, grey pencil skirt with navy and purple, black ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and sundress.

Perfect for pregnancyblack henley in second trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester.

I like how Shelbee matched the autumnal colours in her ribbon scarf with her outfit, the earrings are the perfect match and the animal print shirt compliments the scarf so well. Such a great neutral outfit! See more of Shelbee's outfit on her blog.




Liberty is wearing the beautiful neutral brown ribbon scarf with the cutest teal dress! As it's autumn for her she's layered up a little to keep cosy. The neutral scarf is a perfect accompaniment with the bold teal dress, and works well with the black pieces in her outfit too. Read more about her outfit on Liberty's blog.
