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!

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:

leather jacket, wrap top, burberry scarf, grey skinny jeans, converse. Edinburgh castle shopping outfit | awayfromblue

ScarfBurberry cashmere tartan 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:

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.

Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee (new purchase)
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black

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!

Weekday Wear Link Up! Same Outfit, Different Shoes: Edinburgh Castle Outfit

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, showing one of the simplest ways to change up an outfit. Wearing the same pieces but changing the shoes to create two different outfits for two very different days in Scotland.

What I wore:

Edinburgh castle sightseeing outfit cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf monochrome jeans and tee outfit speedy bandouliere | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | what I wore to visit Edinburgh castle monochrome grey jeans and leather jacket cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf

awayfromblue Instagram | tourist hoodie jumping pic at Edinburgh castle pink sweater grey jeans ankle boots

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this outfit to go explore Edinburgh castle with the boys. If you're in Edinburgh, it's a must-see! We frequently walked up to here during our time in Scotland, as you can see from my jumping pic! It's just so photogenic on top of the castle rock. The views you get from the various points inide the castle are stunning too, you can see all over the city and on a clear day like this was you can see right across the Forth to Fife.

As it is a high point in the middle of Edinburgh it can be quite chilly with the wind, so I layered up! My trusty leather jacket with a long sleeve black tee underneath and grey skinny jeans made a great monochromatic outfit with the ankle boots. With all of the black and grey, the Louis Vuitton bleu shawl was a lovely pop of colour and being a wool blend, it helped to keep me cosy.

The boys had a fun day and were eager to tell everyone that they visited an actual castle for the rest of the trip!

Views From Edinburgh Castle and the One O'Clock Gun Firing




I didn't take a lot of video as we went around the castle - too cold to have my camera out much! So it's just under 2 minutes with some of the views from the castle, the beautiful interiors and of course the firing of the famous one o'clock gun.





What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
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:

Exactly the same as the outfit above, I just switched the shoes! Instead of my ankle boots I picked Converse for a day in the park with the boys. Such an easy way to change an outfit, just swapping out and accessory, but it made such a difference. Converse are my go-to on cold park days with the boys!

Because I really liked the first outfit I kept it all the same, I love how the cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf pops against the black tee, leather jacket and grey jeans.

Grey Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

If you have an outfit you love, wear it again! Everyone re-wears their favourite pieces. If you want to make it slightly different to avoid feeling like you are repeating yourself over and over, swap out an accessory. It can be as simple as changing the shoes you're wearing, or you could change the bag or scarf!

Weekday Wear Linkup: International Flight Style!

If you've been following along on Instagram you'll know I've been travelling a bit lately! This family holiday has taken an epic amount of planning and is the first international flight for the boys. It's been interesting and exhausting and so much fun!

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing my international flight style, as well as what I've packed in my hand luggage for making the journey.

What I wore:

international flight style brisbane to edinburgh stripe duster louis vuitton luggage olive jeans converse | awayfromblue

away from the blue Instagram | international flight style Striped duster olive jeans black tee louis vuitton scarf luggage
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere / Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 / Antler Blue large luggage

Why I wore it:

I was a perfect mix of excited and nervous with the first big international flight for the boys. I've taken them to Sydney before, but this was a combined 26 hours on 3 different planes over a few days, and a much bigger trip than we've ever done with kids.

Stuck with comfortable favourite pieces! A striped duster as an easy cover up that never creases, my cobalt Louis Vuitton shawl for a pop of colour and extra cosiness on the plane, a classic black tee that goes with everything and my olive skinny jeans. Converse as they are the most comfortable and none of the 4 airports we travelled through required me to remove them, so the laces weren't an issue.

I took two carry on items with me - my speedy bandouliere as my handbag and my Louis Vuitton keepall as my main bag. You can see what I carried with me in the video below.

The flights went quite well! We did a screen blackout for the boys 2 weeks before we flew. They sometimes get to watch an episode off Netflix a few times a week, but we stopped that completely so that they were completely obsessed with and entertained by the in-flight movies which worked well. I was also very pleased to see that they inherited their dad's stomach for flying and unlike me they did not get travel sick at all.


Last worn: striped duster, cobalt scarf, black tee, olive skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

What's In My Bag: International Flight Carry On











What I wore:

awayfromblue Instagram | travel style flight to Paris Mickey Mouse tee maxi skirt leather jacket Louis Vuitton luggage
Jacket: Jeanswest black leather moto jacket

Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere / Louis Vuitton Keepall 45

Why I wore it:

Wore the same scarf for a shorter trip - flying from Edinburgh to Paris where we had a few days in Disneyland! My carry on luggage was a bit fuller this time around, as we didn't check in any bags. I packed as lightly as I could and the outfit I wore for the plane was one I wore the next day too.

This Mickey Mouse tee I stumbled across in Uniqlo before we left while looking for a Disney tee for the boys, and I knew we had to all get matching ones! 😂 Because if you're going to go all out and wear matching character tees as a family, where else but Disneyland?! Mickey Mouse loved it!

Again I stuck with my Louis Vuitton scarf to keep me cosy and add a bit of colour with the black leather jacket and maxi skirt. Such a comfy travel outfit.

If you haven't been following along with the travels on Instagram I will be posting a bit more about them on the blog next week!

Printed Scarves With Tees, Skinny Jeans And Balenciaga Part Time Bag

Since it was a milder autumn day when I wore these outfits, I added some printed scarves to my casual jeans and tee outfits, no extra layers needed. A scarf is a nice way to add a little more interest to an outfit.

What I wore:

navy geometric print scarf with burgundy slouchy tee grey skinny jeans | awayfromblue

Balenciaga black part time bag in crook of arm | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy printed scarf, burgundy tee grey skinny jeans mum style
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl navy Geo print tassel scarf (c/o)
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine (similar in black)
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Jeans and a tee, a SAHM staple for a day with the kids! We had a few errands to run and spent some time at the library and playgroup. A really relaxed day.

The outfit felt a little plain though so I added the navy printed scarf for a subtle extra colour, and it was a nice layer for autumn. Even if I ended up taking it off in the middle of the day!

Picked my Balenciaga part time bag to wear as I've been feeling I've been passing over them a lot lately in favour of smaller bags. I liked the size of this one as it easily handled everyone's water bottles, a change of clothes for the boys in case of accidents and some baby wipes.


Last worn: navy mixed print scarf, burgundy slouchy tee, grey skinny jeans, Havaianas, Balenciaga part time bag.

Other ways to wearnavy mixed print scarf and shorts, burgundy slouchy tee and maxi skirt, grey skinny jeans and navy blouse, Balenciaga part time bag and printed dress.

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I absolutely loved this outfit! I feel it looks a bit off in the photos because I decided to leave the tee untucked over the jeans when I'd normally tuck it in. These nobody denim skinny jeans are quite high waisted so I thought leaving the coral tee untucked was better.

This pretty striped scarf was a Christmas gift from my mum and I was excited to wear it. I wasn't sure how the blush in the print would work with the coral tee but I really liked the combination.

After a few stressful weeks, I had a fun day out shopping with my mum and the boys, getting a few more last minute must-haves off our list for our upcoming trip.


Last worn: coral v-neck tee, black skinny jeans, Havaianas (above), Balenciaga black part time bag (above). First time I've worn the scarf as it was a gift.

Printed Scarves Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:


Printed scarves are the perfect way to add a little extra touch to an outfit. Jeans and a tee is a mum staple, and if you pick plain block colour jeans or a tee then you don't need to worry about the print on the scarf clashing with anything. Such a simple way to accessorise in autumn.

Printed Tanks And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Just like Monday's post, again I'm wearing printed tanks and colourful pants. A bit more casually this time, for my usual SAHM days with the kids.

What I wore:

red skinny jeans cheetah print tank louis vuitton neverfrull converse SAHM play centre outfit | awayfromblue

red skinny jeans with Louis Vuitton damier azur MM neverfull tote bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue | Instagram red skinny jeans converse chucks cheetah print tank LV neverfull tote
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressJeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Every time I think of an outfit combination with these red jeans I'm surprised when I flick through the blog archives and find I haven't worn it before! While I've never worn this printed tank and red jeans together, I really liked the combination, and it seems so obvious. It was a nice effortless outfit for a day with the boys. We headed out to a local play centre I had a soon to expire voucher for and I had a nice time at the cafe with a hot chocolate and a book while the boys played.

Of course I didn't get to enjoy the hot chocolate completely hot, there were some incidents with a smashed ear, a bruised knee and a bleeding nose... the boys had fun though despite leaving with a few injuries!


Last worn: animal print tank, turquoise tassel necklace, red skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote.

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit combination again! I picked the same turquoise tassel necklace, following the printed tank and skinny jeans outfit formula, even sticking with the same Louis Vuitton bag. I did wear sandals instead of Converse though.

This fun printed tank was a great opshop $1 bargain find, and although it has no green in it, I thought it would be fun to wear with the green skinny jeans, also an opshop find! I usually stick with neutrals when wearing these green jeans, I find green a tricky colour to wear, but I decided to be bright and colourful and pair the tank with them. I really liked the colours together!

This was another day that was supposed to be quiet but didn't quite go according to plan! The plan was to go to the library, run a few errands, have an early nap and then go see my friend in the afternoon for our coffee date that we'd had to reschedule a few times with sick kids. Thankfully I managed to get everything done, but with a couple more surprises along the way including a very late doctor's visit that meant a late dinner. One of those eventful days where everything goes wrong! At least I had fun with my friend and the boys enjoyed the library in the morning.


Last worn: mixed print colourful tank, turquoise necklace (above), green skinny jeans, gold sandals, Louis Vuitton neverfull bag (above).

How You Can Wear It

A fun pair of colourful jeans can be so easy to wear! You can keep it simple and pick a neutral colourful tank to wear with them, or be bolder and introduce even more colour to your outfit with a bright tank.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Tanks Worn 2 Ways: In The Office, Casually

A little bit of print mixing for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup! Showing you two different ways to wear striped tanks, in the office and casually, and doing a little print mixing by having spotty accessories with the stripes in each outfit too!

What I wore:

autumn olive and yellow print mixing stripes and leopard print outfit with kimono | awayfromblue

olive jeans adn Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | print mixing outfit striped tank olive jeans leopard flats kimono and mustard yellow micro regan bag
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Starting to realise you can't see my earrings with my new shorter haircut! 😂 I was so thrilled to wear jeans for once! I wore these a couple weeks ago, excited about the weather cooling down. Green is one of the colours I find tricky to wear and as a result these olive jeans are frequently worn with black - this striped tank seemed like an obvious choice. Added the white kimono as I wasn't sure which of my printed ones would look best with this and wanted to keep it simple!

Couldn't resist adding a little bit of leopard print to this outfit with the printed shoes too - I felt they worked nicely with the striped tank as they are the same colour scheme.

Hubby and I had an appointment to attend that unfortunately was in the middle of the day. We decided to make the most of it and take the day off. It was nice to have some quiet time at home to get caught up with a few must do tasks which are easier without the boys around!


Last worn: gold earringscrochet kimono, turquoise tassel necklace, black striped tank, olive jeans, leopard print flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to wear: crochet kimono and shortsblack striped tank and maxi skirt, olive jeans and printed scarf, leopard print flats and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and maxi dress.



My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:

TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I felt this outfit was lacking a little something - this cute blue polka dot scarf that I got as a Christmas present from my mum was the perfect finishing piece to add to the striped tank and pencil skirt and blazer outfit. It was a nice bit of print mixing and extra touch of colour with the grey.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag added a little more colour too! I like how the magenta pops with the grey.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, striped tank, grey pencil skirt, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. First time I've worn the scarf as it was a Christmas present.

Perfect for pregnancystriped tank in second trimester, grey pencil skirt in first trimester, metallic ballet flats in third trimester.



Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic that you can easily dress up or down. Stripes are so fun to print mix with too! Why not try introducing a small accessory with a different print for a subtle take on pattern mixing in your outfit.
