WeekdayWear Linkup: Printed Wrap Dresses And Colourful Scarves

For today's weekday wear, I'm layering up some wrap dresses for the office with colourful scarves.

Finding the early morning starts in winter a little hard - getting out of bed in the cold before the sun is up and trying to take photos when the sun hasn't been up very long aren't easy things to do!


What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff medium regan bag in moon navy with llama bag charm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram colourful wrap dress outfit for winter pink scarf cobalt tee  regan bag
Earrings: Kmart silver tassel earrings
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in hot pink (c/o)
Dress: Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress
Tee (under dress): thrifted cobalt blue long sleeve tee
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've layered a tee under this faux wrap dress - I really liked this cobalt one with the print though! I wanted to add a scarf for a little extra warmth and wasn't sure which one to go for when I saw this hot pink one hanging up - I feel it pulled out the pink in the print quite nicely!

With all of the colour I wanted a neutral bag so went with my trusty Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel - the navy colour goes with everything. I really liked this colourful outfit combination, kept me cosy and cheerful on a cold day in the office. (I did add a jacket on top of this but had to take the pics without it so you could see the sleeves of the tee!).


Last worn: cobalt long sleeve tee, tassel earringspink textured scarf, printed faux wrap dress, Walnut Melbourne flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag.

Other ways to wearcobalt long sleeve tee and pencil skirt, pink textured scarf on a bag, printed faux wrap dress in summer, Walnut Melbourne flats and colourful pants, Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag and shorts.

ScarfForever New skye foil feather scarf in berry / gold (on sale!)
DressAtmos&Here Arlette jersey wrap dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As this wrap dress has longer sleeves, I didn't layer a tee under this, sticking with my usual singlet for a little extra coverage. The black and white zigzag print on the dress is so fun to wear and a classic black and white colour scheme meant any colourful scarf would look good with this! I decided to go with the burgundy foil feather print scarf, I really liked the combination.

Again I wore my Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag, such a good bag for work and it handles the rain well - I once accidentally spilled an entire bottle of water in it!

How You Can Wear It:

A wrap dress is a classic piece for work, and they come in so many colours and prints! In winter, a bright scarf can compliment the colours in the print of the dress or add a little extra colour to a neutral dress.

Tee Dresses Layered For Winter: Anniversary Weekend

Still playing catch-up with blog posts, as I wore these outfits a few weeks ago! We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at the end of May. It was a big one for us, with our house build completed, moving into the new house, and a trip overseas to Europe and back to Scotland, where we first went together after our engagement. This time with the kids in tow! With all of these big things I was expecting a quiet weekend for our anniversary, even though hubby had told me to keep the weekend free.

He surprised me with a kid-free weekend away on the Gold Coast, in the same hotel we celebrated out first wedding anniversary in! It was a wonderful surprise!

What I wore:

denim jacket tee dress for winter ankle boots heart print scarf print mixing vintage chanel bag | awayfromblue

Chanel vintage quilted diana lambskin flap bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | stella mccartney heart print scarf with stripe tee dress for winter tights ankle boots vintage chanel bag
JacketJeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressCotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

When hubby let me know what the surprise was I knew instantly I was going to wear some of my dresses that hadn't been worn in a while! I worry this one is a little too short for days with the boys, but for a weekend away it was perfect! As we were driving down I noticed a sign advertising Seafire - a big fireworks event on the beach. This wasn't the perfect outfit for that - although my big blanket scarf did come in helpful to shelter us from a rain shower and keep us warm as we sat on the beach - but it was fun to attend the show anyway. I've never seen fireworks on the beach before, really enjoyed it!

The vintage Chanel bag was another must-have due to being kid-free! It's lambskin so a bit too delicate for me to wear it around the boys very often! It fit just the essentials and my camera inside which was nice.

Why I wore it:

Our second day on the coast, another tee dress! This one was a spring / summer favourite when I bought it when my oldest was a baby, but when he got mobile it got less and less wear. I usually wear it as a top with a skirt over it to make the length a little more practical for running around with the kids. But being kid-free, it was easy to wear with tights and ankle boots. Winter on the Gold Coast is still a little chilly!

This mustard scarf is a great combination with the botanical print on the dress, it compliments the yellow nicely. Again, a simple outfit that I enjoyed wearing!

How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee dress is so simple to wear on it's own in spring or summer. You don't have to pack them away for winter though! Layer them up with tights, ankle boots, denim jackets and a cosy scarf to keep you warm.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Sleeveless Dresses and Long Sleeve Tees


Back to sharing my corporate style for this week's Weekday Wear Link Up! The return to work was a big shift, after 6 weeks of long service leave. I picked some simple fit and flare dresses to wear, layering underneath them with black long sleeve tees to make them work in the colder winter mornings.

What I wore:

Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris
DressJeanswest 'Rita' stripe jersey dress (with Jeanswest black long sleeve henley tee underneath)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Why I wore it:

It was a big adjustment returning to work after 6 weeks off! I added the scarf not just for warmth in the morning but also because I thought it would be fun to wear a little piece from my trip, and I picked this scarf up in Disneyland Paris.

As well as the scarf, I had my fleece-lined tights and long sleeve tee to layer up and keep me cosy on the colder winter commute. It was a busy day and a lot to get used to again in the office - while I've been away for 18 months before on maternity leave, I found this 6 week gap harder to get used to - I think because of the work my team was on being so different from what it was before I went on leave.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Why I wore it:

I followed the same outfit formula for my next day back in the office - this time layering a printed long sleeve tee under my black sleeveless fit and flare dress. I felt the print was a bit too subtle with the dress though, so decided to add some colour with accessories. These red suede ballet flats always make me smile when I wear them, but they are worn so rarely as I usually prefer neutral shoes. I really need to make more of an effort to wear them! With the flat red beaded necklace adding a little pop of colour, this was such an easy way to accessorise.

Wrap Top Worn 2 Ways With Camel Trench Coat, Converse and Skinny Jeans

Living in Brisbane, I don't really have a lot of winter coats. This thick lined trench coat is as wintery as I get, so I knew it had to come on the trip to Scotland with me. A classic camel trench, it works well with skinny jeans and Converse.

What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very fun-filled day! For something a little different, we took the boys into Edinburgh via the train rather than the bus. Then we visited the wonderful Camera Obscura. It's a must-do in Edinburgh, especially with kids. There are 5 levels and we had to pull the boys away from each - they didn't want to leave as there was so much to do!

Kept cosy but wearing my blue wrap top under my trench coat, as it has 3/4 length sleeves. It was still a little chilly at the top of Camera Obscura though, even with my purple scarf, as it was a bit windy.

Converse are an essential for walking around - they were worn so much during our trip!




Last worn: camel trench, purple scarf, blue wrap top, grey skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit formula again! I wore my blue marle wrap top with my olive skinny jeans this time, and the Burberry tartan scarf for extra warmth. Kept with the classic camel trench and Converse shoes. We spent the morning at Dalkeith Country Park which has a wooden fort that the boys adored, as you can imagine! Lots of running around and playing. After lunch and a bit more of a play we headed over to Butterfly World, which was wonderfully heated and much appreciated after the cold day in the park!

I completely shed all my layers by then, the scarf and trench coat weren't needed inside the heated greenhouse!

Grey Skater Dress Layered 2 Different Ways & Weekday Wear Linkup!

This little grey dress is one I frequently pass over for more 'interesting' pieces in my wardrobe at home, but I packed it as I know it goes with everything! I'm wearing it below with my striped duster but some very different outfits - spring in Scotland brought a couple of warmer days in the middle of all the freezing weather!

What I wore:

grey skater dress converse striped duster royal mile red phone boxes Edinburgh may spring | awayfromblue

striped duster with leggings grey skater dress Louis Vuitton speedy converse spring edinburgh cherry blossom

awayfromtheblue Instagram grey skater dress layered for warm day in greyfriars kirkyard
JacketKmart striped maxi cardigan
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was actually a really warm day! Not warm enough for me to go completely bare-armed (this grey skater dress has short sleeves), but warm enough to not need a scarf or thick jacket. I actually began to wonder if I made a mistake packing just scarves and no statement necklaces in my travel wardrobe! I settled with statement earrings instead, I thought the gold was a nice detail against the plain grey dress.

Casual and comfortable for a day exploring Edinburgh - walking up and down the Royal Mile, buying some souvineers, and then visiting Greyfriar's Bobby and Greyfriar's Kirkyard. It's where JK Rowling got a lot of names for Harry Potter - Tom Riddle is buried there. I got to get some photos under the cherry blossom trees I was so admiring, and felt like a proper blogger after doing so (especially as we had to stand in a line to wait for our turn under the trees!).

What I Packed: International Flight With Kids

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've layered this striped duster under my trench coat! With the grey skater dress being short sleeved, I didn't realise how cold my arms would get even under my winter trench coat! And extra layer was needed so this striped duster was worn again, but with a big cosy scarf, completely lined trench coat and ankle boots!

I wore this out for brunch the morning of the wedding.

Edinburgh: Leather Jacket, Skinny Jeans and Converse Outfit Formula

I kept with my habit of getting dressed following easily repeatable outfit formulas while we were on our trip, it worked well with my travel wardrobe. Below I'm wearing the same bag, shoes, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a scarf, but the different tops and colourful jeans I've worn with each outfit make them look rather different.

What I wore:

TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

We went for a walk along Princess street on a rather wet day, and I hadn't yet found a place to take my outfit photo. I was so happy when we found this spot, with a beautiful view of the castle. Even though it was raining I braved the rain to get some pics before we ran undercover again. Such a wonderful view of Edinburgh castle!

We had lunch in Edinburgh after having a little browse in some stores - and a bit of shopping in Primark (we don't have it in Australia, it's kinda like Kmart!).

Afterwards I layered up a little bit more with my souvenir hoodie under my leather jacket to provide some cover from the rain and we hiked up Arthur Seat. It turned into a really clear day and we got great views, as well as surprising a few people at the summit who couldn't believe that the boys were walking up themselves.

Why I wore it:

While I have a couple more outfits to share from our time in Scotland, this is what I wore for our trip home! The Edinburgh graphic tee I'd picked up in Primark a few days before, along with my comfy olive skinny jeans and Converse.

I wanted one last pic with this wonderful view before we left, although once again I've covered up the castle! 😂 At least you can see it on my tee!

This was a really comfortable outfit for the long trip home. The boys slept a lot more on the planes, with us departing from Heathrow in the evening, and then another evening flight from Singapore to Brisbane. We kinda lost a day in the middle of the travel with the time zone changes! Surprisingly I managed to keep this white tee mostly clean, and the marks it did get on it came out easily in the wash. For just $5 (£2.50) I was impressed with the quality.

How You Can Wear It:

Outfit formulas make dressing so easy, especially for a busy mum! Make a few small changes to your outfit - maybe different accessories, a different colour of jeans, and a different top, for something that feels completely new even if it's entirely inspired by what you wore the day before!

Olive and Grey Worn Two Ways: Skinny Jeans and Marle Knit

I thrifted this grey knit for $1 before our trip and thought it would be wonderful to bring along to keep me warm - it was certainly much too hot for the synthetic fibres in Brisbane's hot start to autumn. The time I did wear it, I wore it with my trusty olive skinny jeans. Despite having the same outfit base, olive jeans, grey knit and Converse, I changed up the scarves and outerwear to try keep the outfits different.

What I wore:

Hike up Swanston pentland Hills outfit spring trench coat olive jeans Converse  gorse Whin bushes | awayfromblue

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris
Knit: Thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for our hike in the Pentlands. We were on a mission to see a Highland Cow or two but I had to stop and take a photo with the beautiful gorse / Whin bushes halfway up the hill. Despite it threatening rain and taking two toddlers along on a 'quiet' hike to see some wild cows, we did it! I was so thrilled to find some of the herd over another crest, just after the toddlers had given up. I came back to where they were sitting having a rest and we all walked up to see these beautiful cows in person.

While the boys I kept at a safer distance, I inched closer and closer for a quick pic. My confidence levels helped greatly by the fact that the cow had seem completely disinterested in us since we saw her, and her lack of horns!

After admiring the herd and the views a bit more we headed back down the hill before the rain, to enjoy lunch at Swanston Brasserie, another place I recommend if you're in Edinburgh. The hike up the hills works up an appetite!


Last worn: camel trench, Mickey Mouse scarf, olive skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the knit on the blog as I thrifted it for this trip back in January.

Why I wore it:

No wild animals this time - although we did see some statues of them! 😂 We went for a drive out to the Kelpies at Falkirk. These beautiful statues are so very large and beautiful to see in person. We had a little ice cream then headed to the large playground to have a picnic. Which had seemed like a lovely idea the day before but I admit it was a bit windy out there in the open! Thankfully the boys were running around and having so much fun they didn't notice the cold, and I was grateful I'd packed this slightly larger leather jacket to wear as even with the grey knit underneath I was able to zip this up and stay a little warmer.

My cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf was a nice pop of colour with the neutral grey and olive, and helped keep me warm too being a wool blend!


Last worn: leather moto jacket, Louis Vuitton scarf, grey knit (above), olive skinny jeans (above), Converse (above), Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Even if you're not living out of a suitcase, you can easily repeat an outfit combo you love and change it up slightly next time by picking different accessories or outerwear. Two neutrals like grey and olive work well together and you can add colourful scarves, different jackets, or even different necklaces or bags to change the outfit up each time you wear it.
