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:

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.

Other ways to wearstriped duster for a flight to Sydney, cobalt scarf and printed dress, black tee and pencil skirt, olive skinny jeans in the office, Converse in the snowLouis Vuitton speedy bandouliere and maxi dress.

Perfect for pregnancystriped duster in second trimester, Converse in second trimester, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere in third trimester.


What's In My Bag: International Flight Carry On

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!

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:

navy peasant studded blouse with back pencil skirt for office purple Balenciaga work bag | awayfromblue

slouchy broken in balenciaga raisin purple work bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram navy studded peasant blouse pencil skirt purple Balenciaga bag autumn office outfit
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.

Perfect for pregnancyblack ponte pencil skirt in second trimester.


What Fits Inside Balenciaga Work Bag:







What I wore:

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Blouse: Target blue abstract floral print shirt
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
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.

Perfect for pregnancyprinted blouse and hidden baby bump, zip detail pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester.

How You Can Wear It:

Navy and black is a classic colour combo, and you can't go wrong with a navy blouse and black pencil skirt for the office.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Wearing Dresses As Tops With Pencil Skirts

Scroll down for another Weekday Wear linkup, and to see how I've layered up two printed shift dresses for the office by throwing a pencil skirt over them. (Plus the first photos of my new shorter haircut are on the blog at last! I donated 38 cm of it recently!)

What I wore:


navy shift dress worn as a top with pink balenciaga day bag pencil skirt | awayfromblue

navy and black with Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | navy shift dress worn as a top layered under a black pencil skirt autumn office style
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

This navy printed shift dress was an impulse Zara buy when I was visiting Sydney a few years ago (before we got our own Zara in Brisbane!). This is not the first time I've worn it as a top, but it is the 30th time I've worn it. I'll need to do a 30 ways to wear post with it soon!

I wanted something professional enough to wear in the office but also easy enough to change up for a rare date night out with hubby to see a comedian at the powerhouse. I got him tickets as a Christmas present. It was super easy to make this outfit go from day to night just by taking off the pencil skirt, perfect for dinner and drinks after work before the show.

The magenta Balenciaga day bag was big enough to carry everything I needed and was a fun pop against the navy and black.


Last worn: gold earrings, navy printed shift dress, gold bead necklace, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

Other ways to wearnavy printed shift dress and ankle boots, black pencil skirt in monochrome outfit, black ballet flats and wrap dress, Balenciaga magenta day bag for travel.

Perfect for pregnancynavy printed shift dress in second trimester, black pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga magenta day bag in third trimester.



What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Magenta Day










What I wore:

classic RH Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta worn on shoulder | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram | shift dress layered under pencil skirt easy office outfit with pink Balenciaga bag
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
DressJeanswest Nikki printed shirt dress
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Making the most of my outfit formulas and wearing a similar outfit again! I really like this shift dress but it's been neglected in my wardrobe as I felt it was a little too short for life with kids. It made me smile through the day when I had to keep pulling the skirt down as I was worried the dress was too long and peeking out the bottom! The dipped hem at the back helped with that. I will definitely need to start wearing this dress more. Last time I wore it was back in 2017!

The geometric print on this dress has tiny little pastel pink shapes, a very different shade from the bright magenta Balenciaga day bag, but I think they worked well together and I really liked this combination, just as much as I did the previous times I've worn it!


Last worn: geometric print shirt dress, blush and rose gold necklace, black pencil skirt, camel ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag (above).

Other ways to weargeometric print shirt dress and tights, black pencil skirt and summer tank, camel ballet flats and jeans, Balenciaga magenta day bag and denim shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyblack pencil skirt in second trimester, camel ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga magenta day bag in third trimester.


Printed Shirt Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A too short dress can still be worn to the office if you cover it up with a pencil skirt. Using this trick can turn any dress into a top! This works particularly well for longer sleeved shirt dresses, as they just look like pretty blouses, and you instantly have a more formal office outfit just by adding the skirt.

What I Wore To Donate My Hair! Foil Tees and Maxi Skirts

In case you missed it, I donated my hair! You can see how far behind I am with blogging pics as I posted the video of the big chop at the end of March, and it's mid-April and Easter this weekend! I'll be posting short hair pics from Monday, until then come see what I wore to donate my hair (or take a peek at my Instagram to see the short hair!).

What I wore:

foil stripe tee with black drawstring waist maxi skirt with purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag | away from the blue

rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag plum purple maxi skirt | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | foil stripe tee black drawstring waist maxi skirt
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeJeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
SkirtJeanswest Luxe jersey maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I wore this a few days before I donated my hair. I had the day off to sit that big exam I've mentioned a couple of times. My day was full of studying before logging on to do the test remotely in the afternoon. It was something I needed to be fully dressed for as obviously you are monitored when taking the exam. I had to give the person who was monitoring me for the exam a webcam tour of the entire room and the table I had my computer on, twisting and turning my laptop around. It would have been funnier if I wasn't so stressed about the exam, haha! Especially when I was told my flowers and candle were not allowed on the desk, nothing but my computer and mouse.

Luckily, I passed the exam and have a new work certification to my name! Since most of the day I was home by myself I felt brave enough to wear a white tee without worrying about getting it dirty, this foil one deserves a bit more love as it was a while since it was last worn.

I added the purple mini MAB tote bag for a touch of colour with the black and white and because I didn't need much to do the daycare pick up and drop off.


Last worn: striped foil print tee, blue beaded necklace, black drawstring waist maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Other ways to wearstriped foil print tee and kimono, black drawstring waist maxi skirt and graphic tee, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag worn 30 ways.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the foil tee and maxi skirt combo above, despite the stressful day, I decided to wear a similar outfit again when I went to donate my hair. With some colourful accessories again, including a big statement necklace.

My bestie had grown her hair for two years and donated it, so I decided to do the same! And it's funny, it was about 2 years ago I shared that's what I was going to do!

You can see more in the video - including my reactions to the first cut - but we managed to donate 38cm of hair to Variety to be made into wigs for kids with cancer. Big thanks to Steph at Snippitz hairdresser at Marsden Park for doing the big cut and styling my very short locks afterwards! A special thank you to one of Steph's loyal customers who surprised me and paid for my haircut as their donation to the cause too.

You can find out more about donating your hair (or a monetary donation) on the Variety website.

Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print tee is a fun alternative to a plain tee, adding just a little extra sparkle and interest. Of course you can add further interest to your outfit with bold and bright accessories as well.

Hope you enjoyed the video! Looking forward to sharing my new shorter haircut on the blog next week. Have a happy Easter!

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed A-line Skirts and Plain Tees With Marc Jacobs Fran Bag

Another Weekday Wear linkup, and trying something different with my workwear, getting out these pretty printed skirts I haven't worn in a while! While continuing to wear plain tees, a theme that has been a frequent choice on the blog lately 😂

What I wore:

mustard pleated print a-line skirt white tee jersey blazer business casual autumn | awayfromblue

mustard pleated skirt Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Carob brown fran bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | business casual autumn office printed pleated a-line skirt jersey blazer outfit
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This outfit got a lot of love on Instagram and in the office - I don't know why I don't wear this skirt more often! It makes me smile when I wear it and it's great just-below the knee length so it works in the office. I do try pair it with plain tops to let the skirt be the focus of the outfit.

Usually I'll go for black tops with it, but decided to try this white tee with it. Added the blazer on top as it was a little cooler in the morning, and so it dressed up the plain v-neck white tee a little more for the office. When you're having a meeting surrounded by people wearing jeans though it's not really a necessity at my workplace, I just like to try make the outfit a little more formal.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag has been worn with this skirt in the past, but the necklace is new, one of the ones I got from Christmas I just hadn't worn yet. I think this plain tee was the perfect backdrop for it. I really liked this outfit.


Last worn: black jersey blazer, gold earringswhite v-neck tee, mustard printed pleated skirt, black ballet flats, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the necklace.

Other ways to wearblack jersey blazer and jeans, white v-neck tee and floral kimono, mustard printed pleated skirt and graphic tee, black ballet flats and LBD, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag in capsule wardrobe.

What I wore:

SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

Another new accessory! These mini tassel earrings were another Christmas gift, I thought they went quite nicely with the autumnal colours on the silk skirt. Again, I stuck with the outfit formula I loved so much above. A pretty printed skirt, a plain v-neck tee in black this time and a grey jersey blazer.

The blazer wasn't really needed. We had a big meeting in the afternoon which took up almost half the day, but it was an internal one so I didn't need to dress up for clients!

Felt quite warm that day so didn't wear the blazer much in the office anyway.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, black v-neck tee, pendant necklace, leaf print silk skirt, Marc Jacobs mouse flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag (above). First time I've worn the earrings.

Printed A-Line Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty a-line printed skirt in a modest knee length is a nice alternative to a pencil skirt for office wear, while still fitting in with business casual dress codes. If you are worried it might look a little too casual, you can always add a blazer on top to look more formal for impromptu last minute meetings.

Plain Tees, Maxi Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

Wearing some plain tees with maxi skirts and the cutest Rebecca Minkoff love bag for easy mum style. I picked my Rebecca Minkoff love bag to wear as I felt it was overdue a wear!

What I wore:


Jeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral, target navy stripe maxi skirt mum style | awayfromblue

navy stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | red tee navy stripe maxi skirt rebecca Minkoff love bag
Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

When I saw this tee in store I thought it was a very bright red, even though the tag says coral. I think the camera picks up the orange of it a bit more. It's such a vibrant colour, but in a basic v-neck tee it's still so easy to wear.

Paired with my striped maxi skirt and again the Rebecca Minkoff love bag, this was a simple and comfortable outfit. I've worn a very similar outfit before with a different red tee! Went to the playground and library with the boys and ran a few errands afterwards.


Last worn: blue beaded necklace, striped maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Love bagFirst time I've worn the coral tee as it is a recent purchase.

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Again, repeating an outfit formula I loved and wearing the same thing a few days later just with different pieces. I stuck with the red and blue combo though!

It's not the first time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt with a red top. I had to double check in my blog archives that I hadn't worn this plain red tee with the maxi skirt before, it seems like such an obvious combination! I love the way this tee works with blue denim. A nice casual and comfortable outfit was needed for a quiet day, daycare drop off and working from home before doing the pickup.

The Rebecca Minkoff love bag is a classic and the structured shape dresses up a casual tee and maxi skirt outfit a little more.

More Red Tees Under $50:


(First two are the ones I'm wearing in this post, I recommend sizing down)


How You Can Wear It:

Red and blue is a fun colour combination - and as you can see from the navy and coral and red and chambray outfits, it's something you can try in any shade! Wearing a maxi skirt instead of jeans is a good way to break out of a jeans and tee rut, while still having all the comfort and coverage of jeans.
