Weekday wear link up: Printed Tanks and Grey Pencil Skirts With Chloe Paddington Bag

My last post and Weekday Wear Linkup for the year. So exciting, I can't believe I've been running the linkup for almost a year (and blogging for 8 years!). Thank you so much to everyone who links up! Hope you have a very happy new year!


For my last week at work before the Christmas break I dressed down a little more than usual. I ditched my usual office staple of a blazer and just wore these plain grey pencil skirts with some striped tanks. I did have a cardigan at my desk to combat the cold office aircon and provide shoulder coverage for meetings, but otherwise these outfits felt pretty dressed down.

Maybe it was the Christmas decorations in the office, the summer heat, the casually dressed shorts wearing teammates or the fact that I had 3 weeks of leave lined up over Christmas and New Years - I just wanted something simple and easy for my last couple of days!

SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Ferragamo double wrap bracelet
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

Felt like this tank was overdue a wear - the red/coral brushstroke stripes seemed a little festive without being overly so and it's such a colourful choice to brighten up this grey jersey pencil skirt a bit. Decided to go very matchy-matchy with the rest of my accessories, using the brown Chloe Paddington bag as my inspiration. The gold mouse flats matched the gold padlock, and the Ferragamo wrap bracelet and the wooden beaded statement necklace both have brown and gold in them.

I really liked this outfit, simple for a hot day in the office!


Last worn: brushstroke stripe tank, wooden statement necklace, jersey pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Chloe Paddington bag.

Bracelets: the usual plus gold leaf cuff from my sister's wardrobe
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

This outfit felt even more casual than the first one. This is a pretty casual striped tank, but oh-so comfortable to wear! I paired it with a dressier pencil skirt but still felt very dressed down. As I mentioned above, we usually have a relaxation of the office dress code in the summer heat and with others wearing shorts to work, I didn't feel out of place.

I thought the green necklace was a little festive touch with this! I was going to wear a pair of red earrings as well but decided not to at the last minute. I did add this pretty gold leaf cuff on to my bracelet stack though, a piece my sister no longer wanted but I was happy to pick up! I should have worn it on my other wrist, it didn't sit well with my silver bracelets, but I wasn't sure how it would go on my other arm, my mouse hand. It was a day at the computer tidying up all my tasks and handing things over to others if they couldn't be resolved before I left, and didn't want the cuff getting in the way each time I used the mouse.


Last worn: striped tank, green beaded necklace, grey pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Chloe Paddington bag (above).

Other ways to wearstriped tank and shorts, grey pencil skirt and peplum tank, black ballet flats and floral dress, Chloe Paddington bag and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancystriped tank at 37 weeks, grey pencil skirt in second trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester, Chloe Paddington bag in second trimester.



Striped Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank looks just as good with a pencil skirt as it does with denim! Both of these tanks are worn on my days with the boys and in the office - they are a great double duty piece. If your office doesn't dress down over the Christmas break, or if it's on a more formal side, you can easily throw a blazer over these outfits to make them a little more presentable.

Two Ways To Wear A Black Pencil Skirt: Weekday Wear Linkup

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two different ways to wear a black pencil skirt - for the office and for mum life.

This linkup post will be up a little longer than normal as I won't have my usual post on Wednesday as it will be Christmas day. I'll be back posting as usual on the 27th December with some boxing day sales.

What I wore:

metallic tank statement necklace tweed blazer black pencil skirt in the office with purple bag way to wear | awayfromblue

office outfit with Balenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | summer office outfit with metallic tank and boucle blazer purple balenciaga work bag
JacketJeanswest Dixie collarless jacket
Necklace: thrifted Equip turquoise cream multi strand bead necklace
TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail 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 was a little annoyed with this outfit! I love the metallic tank for a subtle bit of shimmer and the tweed blazer dresses it up nicely and covers my shoulders for the office. The beaded statement necklace was a bit of matchy-matchy with the silver, white and turquoise beads. It got broken and hastily repaired out at dinner one night so it's now a strictly worn without the kids piece. But it went and broke on me while I was in a meeting. A virtual meeting at my desk thankfully but I was still a bit frustrated!

Even with the turquoise in the necklace I thought this outfit needed a little more colour so went with the purple Balenciaga work bag, and added even more interest with the leopard print flats. I did really like this outfit until the necklace annoyed me!


Last worn: tweed blazer, turquoise beaded necklace, metallic tank, black pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga purple work bag.

Other ways to weartweed blazer and printed tank, metallic tank worn two ways, black pencil skirt in winter, leopard print flats and skater dress, Balenciaga purple work bag worn 30 ways.

What I wore:

TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
Shoes:  Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Rushed out of the office early to get home and changed before heading out with family for an important event. Decided to keep the outfit base the same, with the same metallic tank and black pencil skirt, but swapped the ballet flats for these studded sandals, and the blazer for a more casual kimono. It's not the first time I've worn this kimono with a pencil skirt, I enjoyed it last time I wore that combination too.

Swapped the accessories out for a more kid-friendly necklace, and a cute little red bag to add some extra colour to my outfit.

Simple and quick outfit for a night out with family, followed by dinner at our place before putting two very tired kids to bed very late!


Last worn: navy printed kimono, blue beaded necklace, metallic silver tank (above), black pencil skirt (above), studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono and skinny jeans, metallic silver tank and maxi skirt, black pencil skirt over a dress, studded sandals and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote and teal dress.

Perfect for pregnancynavy printed kimono at 39 weeks, black pencil skirt in first trimester, studded sandals in third trimester.



Black Pencil Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pencil skirt is a wardrobe staple, and it's easy to layer it up with a blazer to fit a formal work environment. You can dress it down by changing the outerwear again - pick something more casual like a kimono for an easy outfit that's suitable for a hot summer night.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Wrap Tops and Pencil Skirts With Balenciaga Day Bags

For today's weekday wear I'm wearing some wrap tops that haven't been worn in a while with pencil skirts and statement necklaces for an easy office outfit.

What I wore:

navy wrap top with statement necklace and grey jersey pencil skirt, printed flats summer office outfit | awayfromblue

Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | navy wrap top with grey jersey pencil skirt beaded statement necklace summer office outfit
NecklaceOxfam Noah's Ark green red beaded necklace
TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this navy wrap top with a grey pencil skirt, I really like navy and grey together! To change it up a little I added some different accessories. This green and red beaded statement necklace is a firm fave and while I do wear it at other times through the year it seems so perfectly festive for December, being so close to Christmas! I wasn't sure if the leopard print flats would be too much with this given the necklace was already enough of a statement, but I ended up really liking it when I tried it.

The tempete Balenciaga day bag is the perfect mix of blue and grey so seemed like the obvious choice to wear with this 💙


Last worn: navy wrap top, green and red necklace, grey jersey pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Other ways to wearnavy wrap top and maxi skirt, grey jersey pencil skirt worn two ways, leopard print flats and jeans, Balenciaga tempete day bag and floral dress.

Perfect for pregnancynavy wrap top in third trimester, grey jersey pencil skirt in third trimester, Balenciaga tempete day bag in second trimester.


What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Day







What I wore:

Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta | away from the blue

Necklace: thrifted magenta pink statement beaded necklace (new purchase)
TeeAtmos&Here Nile wrap front jersey tee
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Followed the same blue and grey colour scheme as the first outfit for this one, just with a single brighter colour in my accessories. I thought the basic grey wrap top was a nice neutral to pair with the jacquard pencil skirt and I really like the way the magenta pops against it!

This recently thrifted necklace was one I couldn't pass by in the opshop when I was in looking for Christmas books for our advent calendar. I knew it would be the perfect match with this magenta Balenciaga day bag and I love the way they look together!


Last worn: grey wrap top, jacquard pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag. First time I've worn the necklace as it was a recent purchase.

Other ways to weargrey wrap top and jeans, jacquard pencil skirt in winter, silver ballet flats and printed dress, Balenciaga magenta day bag and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancyjacquard pencil skirt in first trimester, silver ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga magenta day bag in third trimester.



Wrap Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple wrap top is a nice twist on a basic and works well in the office when you need to be a little more dressed up. They are great with pencil skirts! I bought both of these wrap tops for easy breastfeeding as they have a snap to hold them in place. It makes them simple to wear at work as they don't gape open. You could always layer a tank underneath if your top doesn't have a modesty snap.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Long Sleeve Blouses and Pencil Skirts For Spring

Trying a new colour scheme and an old favourite for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, with some pretty blouses and textured pencil skirts.

What I wore:

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH on arm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | blue and berry blouson sleeve blouse and pencil skirt office spring outfit
BlouseJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I'd planned to wear this outfit the previous day I was in the office, but the crazy heatwave meant I changed up what I'd planned to wear then, and wore this on my other office day instead. I was glad to be able to wear this outfit at last!

Thought I'd try something a little different with the blush skirt and the berry blouse together. I really liked the colour combo, and decided to keep it simple with everything else, going without a necklace or statement earrings and just wearing black accessories. I thought the black ballet flats and Balenciaga part time bag matched the fuzzy polka dots on the skirt nicely.


Last worn: berry blouse, polka dot pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag.

Other ways to wearberry blouse and maxi skirt, polka dot pencil skirt with purple, black ballet flats and jeans, Balenciaga part time bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancypolka dot pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester, Balenciaga part time bag in second trimester.


Balenciaga vs Rebecca Minkoff Bags







What I wore:

monochrome lace pencil skirt navy target blouse business casual office outfit gold accessories | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with lace skirt Llama bag charm | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instgagram blouse and pencil skirt monochrome lace business casual spring outfit
Earrings: Kmart mustard gold tassel earrings
Top: Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first outfit, this is a colour combo I often wear. This blue lace skirt looks great paired with other blue pieces and when I saw this blouse in the Target clearance sale I thought of wearing it with this skirt right away. Instead of a necklace I wore my Kmart gold and mustard tassel earrings, to match the gold mouse flats. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag matched the navy top and lace skirt well too.

The only downside with this outfit is that the blouse looked a bit too voluminous with the half tuck. Think I need to try tuck it all in next time. It's an awesome relaxed trapeze cut but it made tucking into this high waisted skirt a little tricky!


Last worn: navy collared blouse, mustard earrings, lace pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearnavy collared blouse with burgundyblue lace pencil skirt worn 30 ways, gold mouse flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancyblue lace pencil skirt in second trimester, gold mouse flats in third trimester.


Long Sleeve Blouses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pencil skirt is an office staple and wearing a blouse with it creates a lovely feminine outfit. You can go monochrome and match the blouse and skirt together like I have in the second outfit, or be a little brighter and pair a colourful skirt with a jewel toned blouse like in the first outfit.

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 waterfall cardigan with leaf print tank grey jersey pencil skirt spring business casual office outfit | awyafromblue

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

awayfromtheblue | leaf print tank jersey pencil skirt rebecca minkoff mab tote spring office outfit

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.

Other ways to wearred cardigan with monochrome black outfit, leaf print tank worn two ways, grey jersey pencil skirt and kimono, silver ballet flats and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag and sheath dress.

SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
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.


Last worn: navy cardigan, brushstroke stripe tank, grey pencil skirt, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag (above). First time I've worn the necklace on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:




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.



See how Shelbee and Liberty wore their scarves and scroll on down for your chance to win one!




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.
