Weekday Wear Linkup! Ombre Knit Worn 2 Ways

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm sharing two ways to wear this fun ombre knit I bought a few years ago from Jeanswest. It worked perfectly for a busy day in the office and then dinner out with some mum friends in the evening.

What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Scarf: star print pashmina
JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

On a cold winter day, a nice knit jumper, black pencil skirt and fleece-lined tights is such an easy choice for the office, especially if you're in a casual work environment like I am. The ombre knit kept me so warm I only needed the fun star print scarf on the commute. The neutral stars pair perfectly with the camel trench coat. With all of the neutrals, even silver ballet flats, I felt this outfit needed a little pop so I wore my Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag in magenta, such a great touch of colour.

It was a little bit of a hectic day at work, ending with a big presentation that I was quite nervous about! Thankfully I had my colleague there too helping me present, and I was relieved to get good feedback about our session afterwards, as well as some compliments on my knit! A forever classic I think.

BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

After the day at work above, I quickly dashed home to get changed and get a photo before the sun set! I kept the same knit, as I love it so much, and just made a few extra changes to make a more cheerful outfit for an evening out with some mum friends trying a new restaurant.

I've worn this ombre knit with my burgundy pants before, but this is the first time I've worn it with my red jeans. I really liked the combination, and wanted to continue the red theme with the fun skull scarf. A black leather jacket seemed a more casual option than a trench coat, but still cosy, and I added some ankle boots to keep me warm. I did look at the photos afterwards and think I should have worn black ankle boots with this instead of my nude Acne pistol boots, but with these having a bit of a heel there aren't many opportunities in mum life to wear them and I jumped at the opportunity to wear them to dinner!

The coral mini MAC bag was a completely different colour, it really seems more peach than coral to me despite the official colour name,so I thought the orange and red would look nice together. I really liked this and had a wonderful night out!

How You Can Wear It:

It's great to have pieces that do double duty in the office and outside of work too! A classic neutral knit is something you will find easy to wear for so many occasions. An ombre knit looks great with other neutral pieces or can be made more fun with brighter and colourful pieces.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Feather Print Scarves & Pencil Skirts For Winter Office Wear

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm wearing two similar pencil skirt outfits for work with some fun feather detail scarves. One is a feather print scarf and the other is embroidered feathers. Both are wonderfully cosy!

What I wore:

camel trench coat, feather print scarf, white jumper, blush polka dot pencil skirt, Mulberry bayswater | awayfromblue

oak NVT Mulberry heritage bayswater bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue camel trench white knit, blush polka dot pencil skirt mulberry bayswater winter office outfit
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
Scarf: Nali feather print pashmina scarf
Jumper: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold day when I wore this! I know I've worn this pencil skirt recently but I really wanted to wear it again, this time with a cosy white knit that's originally from my mums wardrobe. Even the ribbed jumper wasn't enough to keep me warm though, the taupe feather print scarf was a must have for the cold morning. So were the ankle boots!

With all of the neutrals I went with my pink tassel earrings to add a little more colour, even though it's a brighter pink than the blush of the skirt I think it worked nicely.

What's In My Bag: Mulberry Bayswater










What I wore:

Mulberry oak bayswater bag in NVT leather on arm | away from the blue

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt:  Jeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I felt a bit flustered this morning! The weather was much warmer, which meant me ditching the knit I'd planned to wear the night before, and just wearing a grey tee under my navy coat. I still wanted to wear my pretty feather embroidered scarf though, and I thought the darker grey worked nicely with the lighter grey of the tee.

With having to change my outfit at the last minute because of the weather, and already running a little late, I had a very rushed start to the day, especially after taking the first few photos with my bag facing backwards, and having to retake them again so you could actually see the detail on the Mulberry bayswater bag! Thankfully the day improved from there.


Last worn: navy mac, grey v-neck tee, feather embroidered scarf, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Mulberry Bayswater (above).

Other ways to wearnavy mac and stripes, grey v-neck tee and shorts, feather embroidered scarf and printed dress, black pencil skirt over a dress, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Mulberry Bayswater and chambray dress.

Feather Print Scarves Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple neutral top works well with a pencil skirt in the office. You can wear a knit if it's colder or a casual tee when it warms up a little. You can add a scarf for some extra interest and warmth in your daily commute too, and a printed or embroidered one is a great idea if your top is a basic neutral.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Coordinating Scarves and Bags: Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga with Cosy Knits and Pencil Skirts

If you've read my blog a while you'll know I love a bit of matchy-matchyness in my outfits! I've posted recently about matching shoes and bags together, but for something a little different for today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm coordinating my bags and scarves together, with two of my Alexander McQueen skull scarves.

What I wore:

pink skull scarf, cobalt knit and jacquard pencil skirt for office winter style with balenciaga alexander mcqueen | awayfromblue

Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta pink with cobalt knit | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome blue outfit jacquard pencil skirt cobalt knit with pink accessories skull scarf Balenciaga day bag
Earrings: Kmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
Top: blue Mossman knit jumper
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

When I thrifted this bright blue knit a while back I didn't anticipate I'd wear it with this magenta Balenciaga day bag quite so much! I really love the way the bag pops against the blue, particularly in a monochrome outfit like this with the navy skirt as well as the blue jumper. Black ballet flats were the best choice with the bright top and accessories!

It was a warmer morning so I went without a jacket - the jumper is a thick knit and this cream and pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is quite cosy being modal. It's more of a neon pink than the magenta pink of the Balenciaga bag, so the colours don't match exactly, but they are so complimentary they look great worn together.


Last worn: tassel earringspink skull scarf, blue knit, jacquard pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

Other ways to wearpink skull scarf with stripes, blue knit and maxi skirt, jacquard pencil skirt in summer, black ballet flats and printed dress, Balenciaga magenta day bag for travel.

JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

What a day! I had the dentist after work, so I was planning to get in a little earlier than usual and leave earlier. It was a cold morning so bundled up in my cosy grey polka dot foil knit, fleece lined tights and navy mac coat. With my Balenciaga tempete day bag, I wanted to pick a similarly coloured scarf and went with this baby blue Alexander McQueen skull scarf.  While they are different shades of blue I think they compliment each other nicely! The silver ballet flats matched the hardware on the bag and the foil polka dots on my jumper, but I didn't do much walking!

There was a police incident and traffic quickly came to a standstill. After being on the bus for an hour and not even reached the half way mark on my trip I realised we weren't going to make it into the city in time for my morning meeting (then an hour away) so I called my boss, got permission to work from home and asked the bus driver to drop me off at the next bus stop, which we could see just 100 meters away. 15 minutes later we pulled up to the bus stop! The traffic was that slow! Eventually I made it home, only 10 minutes late for my 9am meeting ... after a terribly flustered meeting without my usual hour of early morning prep before it I had the rest of the day to try catch up on everything, before heading to the dentist. Not the best of days!


Last worn: tassel earrings, navy mac, blue skull scarf, polka dot knit, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Pencil Skirts In The Office With Brighter Scarves

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm wearing two different textured pencil skirts to the office. I love wearing pencil skirts to work, even in winter, and these textured ones add a nice bit of interest. With the black in them, they work so nicely with my fleece-lined tights too!

What I wore:


JacketJeanswest Monica Mac coat in Indigo
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TopJeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I really like blue and green together, so I thought this teal henley would go nicely with the navy jacquard pencil skirt. Surprisingly, despite them both being old pieces in my wardrobe, I've never worn both of them together before! I thought I'd definitely worn the cobalt scarf with the teal top at least, but nope that was a new pairing too!

With the navy skirt and blue scarf, I thought my navy mac was a good outerwear choice. It helped the teal henley stand out more too I think! The black Balenciaga part time bag is such an easy accessory, it goes with everything.


Last worn: navy mac coat, cobalt scarf, teal henley, jacquard pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Other ways to wearnavy mac coat and colourful pants, cobalt scarf and grey dress, teal henley and a-line skirt, jacquard pencil skirt and purple tee, black ballet flats and jeans, Balenciaga Part Time bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyteal henley in second trimester, jacquard pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga Part Time bag in second trimester.


30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga Part Time Bag









What I wore:



Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
ScarfAlexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
BlouseJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Another textured pencil skirt, this one again an old wardrobe favourite. Unlike the outfit combination above though, this black henley blouse is frequently worn with the pastel pink textured pencil skirt. It's a simple choice as it matches the black polka dots on the scarf nicely. The camel trench coat is another frequently worn piece with the skirt, as is the black Balenciaga part time bag.

For something a little different I picked this magenta skull scarf to really pop against the black and add a little bit of colour. Much bolder than the pastel pink of the pencil skirt, but I thought it complimented it perfectly.


Last worn: camel trench, gold tassel earrings, skull scarf, black henley, polka dot pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag (above).

Textured Pencil Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A textured pencil skirt is a fun addition to your work wardrobe, and just as wearable as a plain black option. You can go very colourful and pair the skirt with a brighter top and scarf, or keep it simple with a plain black blouse.

Jeanswest Jewel Toned Blouses In The Office & Weekday Wear Linkup

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm sharing two pretty jewel toned blouses I wore to work with classic black pencil skirts. I wear my pencil skirts year-round to the office, they just need a little extra layering in winter!

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy with heart tassel charm | awayfromtheblue

TopJeanswest Chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

More fun photos from my friend K at the Myer Centre cloud 9 area. When I saw that this pink and yellow wall matched my pink and yellow scarf it was an obvious backdrop for taking photos!

I like the sapphire blue of this studded blouse, it's such a nice colour and it pairs nicely with black. I think navy and black is a stunning combo. With the navy Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote too though the outfit felt a little flat - the pink and yellow Alexander McQueen skull scarf was the perfect accessory for a little extra colour.

These black ankle boots have been getting a workout too after my tan ones broke!

JacketJeanswest Cassandra jacquard jacket
TopJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This berry blouse is such a great colour to wear! It's shiny fabric makes it seem more pink or more ruby toned in different lights. I was wondering what bag I could wear with it when I realised it looked pretty similar to the shade of this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag! You know I love a bit of matchy-matchy, and while the shades don't match exactly this combination made me so happy.

This lovely metallic boucle jacket seemed like a good combo with the silky texture of the blouse, and the round neckline let the little ruffled collar of my blouse standout. I also appreciated the zippers on the sleeves of this jacket. The blouse has puffy statement sleeves and it wasn't fitting under a plain black blazer, but unzipping the sleeves on this slightly let me wear the blouse under with ease!

Jewel Toned Blouses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A jewel toned blouse in a modest cut is great for the office. Long sleeves mean your arms are protected from the freezing aircon, and the colours are a nice pop with a classic black pencil skirt. With the plain colourful backdrop of the blouse you can add a fun printed jacket or a scarf for a little extra interest too.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Blouses, Black Pencil Skirts and Purple Balenciaga Work Bag

Wearing a simple colour scheme in two different ways for this week's #WeekdayWearLinkup! Navy blouses, black pencil skirts and my fun purple Balenciaga work bag.

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings
BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

I love wearing this studded peasant blouse to work. With the tassels at the neckline and the stud detail, I never need to accessorise! It's so easy to wear. Paired it with a lot of black, I think navy and black are always a good combination. I've worn a very similar outfit before here. To make things a little different this time, I switched up the accessories, with the leopard print flats and the purple Balenciaga work bag. Blue and purple is a combo I always love, in any pairing of shades.


Last worn: navy tassel earrings, navy blouse, black ponte pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga purple work bag.

Other ways to wearnavy blouse and skinny jeans, black ponte pencil skirt, leopard print flats and sundress, Balenciaga purple work bag and maxi dress.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

The next time I was in the office, I went with the same outfit formula. Black pencil skirt, navy top and purple Balenciaga work bag. I didn't like the photo outfit as much as the one above though - I was in a bit of a rush taking photos so that's probably why. I felt great in this outfit all day, one of those outfits that just didn't photograph as good as I felt! Being my last day at work before taking my long service leave might have helped.

I picked a silver necklace to match the silver hardware on the Balenciaga work bag but it does blend in a little bit with the abstract floral print. Could have picked a bolder necklace.


Last worn: printed blouse, silver necklace, zip detail pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga work bag (above).

Other ways to wearprinted blouse and purple jeans, zip detail pencil skirt in monochrome outfit, black ballet flats and wrap dress, Balenciaga work bag and jeans.
