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:

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.

Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber

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

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!

Weekday Wear Link Up: Grey Tees and Plain Maxi Skirts With Mini MAC Bag

Enjoying the spring like weather right at the end of winter last month I wore some simple maxi skirt and tee outfits with a couple of my grey tees and my blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

awayfromblue ochre amber maxi skirt with grey tee and blue mini mac bag spring style

awayfromtheblue rebecca minkoff sky grey blue mini mac bag with ochre amber maxi skirt



Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a beautifully sunny public holiday. Since the Ekka (our Queensland state show) was cancelled they moved the Wednesday public holiday to Friday instead to give everyone a long weekend. The weather was so nice we headed out with the kids around our favourite trail. I wasn't expecting it to be quite so busy though! It's usually so quiet we can go the entire time without seeing more than 2 people, but I guess with the public holiday everyone wanted to enjoy the spot. Thankfully the outdoors is a great place to keep our distance, and the kids showed their Dad some of their "hidden" paths off the trail we have taken before where we didn't see anyone for a while.

Since it was such a warm day I just wore a simple outfit, I liked the last time I wore a grey tee with this ochre maxi skirt, and this darker grey tee was even better than the last one I tried. Since hubby was there to carry the baby bag I just wore my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC for keeping my essentials with me - I often use the camera on my phone to take pics as we walk around here. I thought the blue was nice with the ochre skirt.






What I wore:

awayfromblue black maxi skirt grey tee converse with pink striped scarf and blue mini mac bag

awayfromtheblue black maxi skirt with blue rebecca minkoff mini mac bag



Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Tee: Jeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This day was even warmer than the one above, although it was pretty windy too! I decided to add this fun pink striped scarf to my outfit, as the grey tee and the black maxi skirt were a little plain together. Even though the grey tee has a contrasting pink panel on the back it looked a little monochrome from the front. I thought the scarf complimented the pink on the tee nicely, even if it did keep blowing around a bit when I tried to get photos!

Again I wore my little blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, it goes well with pink and grey.

This was a nice outfit for a busy day with the school run, working from home and an appointment for my son in the afternoon.


How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey tee and maxi skirt outfit is a great option to keep you cool on a warm day. You can keep it monochromatic like I have in the second outfit and add some colour with accessories, or let the skirt be the pop of colour like I have in the first outfit with the ochre skirt.

Skinny Jeans, Printed Tanks And Cardigans

Making the most of the warmer winter weather just before spring arrived, I got some of my printed tanks out when all I needed to add was a light cardigan. Wore some colourful jeans with them too.

What I wore:

green skinny jeans, grey cardigan and yellow and navy aztec print tank with silver mini mac bag and accessories | awayfromblue

green skinny jeans with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | away from the blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wanted to wear light and colourful layers as it was such a warm day, so this 3/4 sleeve cardigan and a printed tank were perfect. Surprisingly it's the first time I've worn this mustard tank with the green skinny jeans! I really like wearing yellow with these green jeans so I was surprised to look back on the blog and see I hadn't paired the two together before.

I was a little disappointed to see I hadn't worn this tank in over a year and a half too - it really needs to be worn more often, it's a comfortable swing style and goes with so much - last time I wore it with purple.

With the printed tank and bright green jeans I kept the accessories simple with the matching silver mini MAC bag and silver circle necklace. Just wish it had been a little warmer at the end of the day! This outfit was perfect for the school run in the morning and afternoon but I had to layer up with a thicker coat for my son's sports in the evening when it got really cold.





What I wore:

purple cardigan striped tank skull print scarf and magenta skinny jeans outfit with mini mac bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag with magenta skinny jeans  | away from the blue



Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue (and Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag)

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun day! Spent the day with my sister taking her around our fave trail, enjoying the sunshine and the trees sheltering us from the worst of the wind. It was so nice to get out and treat ourselves to a takeaway lunch afterwards.

Added this light scarf to try combat the wind a little. This neon pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is frequently worn with stripes, I really like the combination and despite it being a different shade of pink with the magenta skinny jeans I think they worked well together. Surprisingly I haven't worn this scarf at all this winter! I have been living in loungewear since we go out so little though, hubby and I share the school runs so I don't go out every day.

Keeping up with all the colour I added my purple cardigan and blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. I did say I'd be wearing this cardigan and these jeans together again last time I wore them - the purple is such a nice shade with the magenta!

As you can see I swapped to my Rebecca Minkoff Julian bag to carry all the water bottles and some snacks on our little hike, but I wore the mini MAC bag for the school run and a quick Kmart shop in the afternoon.


Last worn: purple cardigan, pink and cream skull scarf, black and white stripe tank, magenta skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, Rebecca Minkoff Julian.



How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a great combination with a pair of colourful jeans. You can add a light cardigan or scarf if it's a little cooler. Either stick with neutrals to balance out a colourful tank and jeans combo like I have in the first outfit with the grey cardigan, or layer up even more colour like I have in the second outfit with the pink scarf and purple cardigan.

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.

Matching Scarves To Skinny Jeans - Weekday Wear Link Up

At it again with my matchy-matchy! Picking some colours out of these Fashion Scarf Girl Scarves I bought last month to build an outfit around. While I just posted these scarves last week, this time around I'm adding them to more colourful outfits with my skinny jeans. I wanted to wear them twice close together to meet my "wear any new purchase twice in the month I buy it" goal. Luckily I managed to wear both of these twice just before the end of June! Still going strong with No Buy July this month so far.


What I wore:

pink and purple skinny jeans and grey tee outfit matching printed scarf | awayfromblue

sass and bide magenta skinny jeans with  Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | pink and purple cardigan and skinny jeans outfit with grey tee and super cute fluffy dog

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf
TopAtmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

A colourful outfit for a bit of a sad day. Added all the colour to cheer myself up a bit, with my Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans and purple cardigan. I really like pink and purple together so it won't be the first time I wear these pieces together! Plus the colours matched the pink and purple in the forest print of my scarf, even if the pink is a different shade.

The blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag matched the colours in the scarf too and I thought the grey tee was a good neutral piece to add to all those colours!

On this day we got to see our dog off as she went home with her family. Originally we were only going to look after her a little while, but as Coronavirus took hold things got more complicated. Plans changed a few times, so with her being with us so long it was a little hard to say goodbye, but nice to see her going home.

TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Again, matching the colours in a printed scarf to the colour of my jeans! The green skinny jeans work well with the green print in this scarf, and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag matched the blue bits nicely too! Kept the rest of my outfit a little more neutral with the black cardigan and grey long sleeve tee. I was thankful for this thicker black cardigan in the evening, as we had to again sit outside the hall for my son's sports class as there were too many people training in the venue for the COVID restrictions at the time. The cardigan and scarf kept me extra cosy on a very cold winter night!




How You Can Wear It 

A a colourful printed scarf  can be so easy to wear if you match it to another colourful piece in our outfit, like I have here with the bright skinny jeans, and the cardigan in the first outfit. You can always add a neutral base like a grey tee too to balance out the colours.

Kimonos In Winter With Skinny Jeans, Grey Tees and Converse

Sticking with the jeans and tee outfit formula that has been on repeat lately - it's perfect for winter days! To mix things up a little, I'm wearing some slightly different colour schemes with grey tees, red (and burgundy) jeans, and then some very different kimonos to suit the different temperatures that week!

What I wore:


Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Top: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I was glad it was a warm day to give me another chance to wear this duster kimono - I picked it up in the January sales and while it was a complete impulse buy I've been liking how easy it's been to integrate into my wardrobe. I've used the colours in the prints to match it to yellow and a different shade of red before, I knew it would make a great matchy-matchy combo with these red skinny jeans.

Like the skinny jeans that were a thrift find, this grey tunic was another opshop find. And since I got it in a "fill a bag for $5" sale it works out to about 63 cents! With the bright jeans and the printed kimono I thought a nice neutral grey tee was a great piece to wear in between and I was hoping the thrifted pieces would bring me luck at the opshop! I really liked the silver necklace with this outfit too, even if the hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is gold.

After the school drop off the little one and I headed out to our recently reopened opshop. There were a few new rules, such as using hand sanitiser and wearing the provided gloves, but it's a small store so actual social distancing was tricky! I bought a couple of things - a book for myself and some DVDs and a PJ masks playset for the kids. I didn't get a chance to look at much else as my son was fairly insistent that we had to pay for the toy and take it home right away so he could play with it 😂 It is missing a few pieces based on what I can find online but it was just $2 so I wasn't going to say no!


Last worn: floral duster kimono, grey tunic tee, silver necklace, red skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Other ways to wearfloral duster kimono and shorts, grey tunic tee and pencil skirt, red skinny jeans and peplum tee, Converse and printed dresses, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and matching boots.

Perfect for pregnancyConverse in second trimester.


Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC vs MAB Camera Bag







What I wore:



JacketRebecca Minkoff Ruana poncho
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Unlike the kimono above, this was made for winter! Last time I wore it it was much too warm, but when the winter weather arrived again later in the week this was the perfect outfit. I wore this to work from home, and to pop out in the afternoon to pick up some party supplies for my son's upcoming birthday party.

This poncho / kimono is just a big cosy knitted blanket so it was perfect for the cooler evening and so comfortable for working from home. But a more dressed up option than an actual blanket or my usual go-to bathrobe 😂

This darker grey tee is one of my favourites and it was definitely overdue a wear again! With the darker grey I thought these burgundy skinny jeans were a good accompaniment. The woven kimono makes enough of a statement on its own but I couldn't resist adding a couple extra prints with the striped Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and the tortoiseshell necklace.

The only downside to this outfit was that I kept getting the kimono caught on things all day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos are fun ways to add more interest to a plain shorts and tee outfit. While a longer sleeved duster kimono might work on a warmer winter day, a cosy knitted version comes in helpful on the colder days!
