What I Wore To Disneyland Paris & Weekday Wear Linkup

We took the boys to Disneyland Paris! We had two amazing days at Euro Disney, having the best fun. It really is a magical place and while the parks were busy and things were crowded and my French was not as great as it could be, we had an incredible time.

We packed light, hand luggage only, as we flew from Edinburgh to Paris.

What I wore:

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I could not stop grinning! It's been a dream of mine to go to Disneyland since I was little and to take the boys and seeing them immersed in the magic for a couple of days was wonderful!

Day one was Disneyland Paris - I wore my Mickey tee (we all did for our meeting with the famous mouse!) and my maxi skirt, with my comfortable Converse for walking around a lot. It's a big park! We got to meet treasured characters, eat the best food (Mickey Mouse shaped pizzas and a lot of popcorn!) and took so many photos. It was a chilly start to the day but did warm up so my Louis Vuitton scarf and my leather jacket came off and on through the day. The boys were dressed in layers too.

I wanted to share a favourite moment from the day here on the blog but there were so many! From finally getting to meet Mickey after planning this trip for almost a year, meeting Winnie the Pooh, the parade where Elsa blew a kiss to the boys, and Peter Pan recognised them from earlier in the day, the fireworks show at the end of the night and many more ... there are just so many special moments! I included some of them in the video below. If you've ever wanted to visit Disney, do it! Especially when the kids are little!

First Time Experiencing Disneyland!

JacketJeanswest black leather moto jacket

DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Our next day at Disneyland Paris we went to Walt Disney Studios. I was glad I'd packed this short sleeve dress as this was a much warmer day and my leather jacket didn't stay on long at all. The dress was a nice light outfit option to have in my hand luggage and a dream to travel with - no creases when I rolled it up.

Initially I'd been unsure if this park would be as much fun as the main park for the boys - it turned out to be such a great day and I'm glad we went. It was certainly a quieter park with much shorter wait times for rides. Although we did have to use a Fast Pass to get on the Tower of Terror ride! The boys got to meet Spiderman after watching the superhero show live and were over the moon! We cuddled Pluto and Goofy and walked past Cruella De Ville and Woody, and went on a ton of rides.

It was another magical day and over much too soon, but we had to leave and get to the airport to fly back to Scotland for a very important date.

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.

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!

Grey Tees, Denim Shorts and Kimonos: Easy Mum Style

Sometimes the simplest outfits are the best! I love a good grey tee, and they are so nice with denim shorts. Throw on a printed kimono to feel a little more pulled together, and accessorise with a bright neon bag. Easy and perfect for a day with the kids!

What I wore:


floral kimono grey tee, denim shorts, neon pink mini mac bag | awayfromblue

rebecca minkoff neon pink mini MAC bag with denim shorts | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | mum style navy floral kimono denim shorts grey tee neon pink mini mac bag
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves (also in black)
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I needed a simple outfit for a stressful Monday so I fell back on my much loved outfit formula. To accessorise I just decided to pick everything pink as there is some pink in the floral print of the kimono. even though everything was a different shade of pink, I think it all worked well together. I love the way this neon pink mini MAC bag pops with the grey tee and the navy kimono, it really shines against neutrals. It's such a frequent accessory choice when I wear this kimono!

It was a stressful start to the morning as we had an appointment to keep but my phone had died the day before so I was desperately hunting for a replacement phone around the appointment time. The kids behaved so well as I dragged them round store after store. I'd picked out a possible new phone for Christmas but decided against it, so I knew the model I wanted, but it wasn't as widely available as it was in December! Thankfully I tracked it down, at the sixth store we went to. Yes, 6. My boys were so patient, but it was a stressful morning for us all!


Last worn: floral print kimono, pink beaded necklace, slouchy grey tee, distressed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals, neon pink Mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wearfloral print kimono and skinny jeans, slouchy grey tee and green jeans, distressed denim shorts and striped tank, studded gladiator sandals worn 30 ways, neon pink Mini MAC bag and printed dress.

JacketNew Look Petite print kimono
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Looking a little flat here - I was starting to feel unwell and lose my voice, but I'd pre-booked a fun morning and I had to pick up a few last minute birthday party things for baby boy's birthday party the next day, so I pushed through.

Our morning started with messy play - I'd picked all these things to wear as they could be easily washed (as advised when I booked the tickets). I did not expect to have to wash the grey tee quite so quickly though, after I took pics there was an incident with a breakfast bowl and I had to quickly take this off, stuff it in the washing machine and find another grey tee to replace it. Luckily I have a few! 😂

Thankfully at the actual messy play I managed to keep my clothes clean - although the boys loved getting dirty and my legs were covered in green 'slime' at the end of it. Lots of fun! Complete change of clothes for them and a bit of a clean with baby wipes and we were ready to run around the shops and pick up all the last minute party things.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple and you can never have too many! It looks great worn with denim shorts on a warmer day, and you can easily add more colour and interest with bright accessories or a printed kimono.

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.

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!

V-Neck Tees, Printed Kimonos and Mini MAC Bags: SAHM Style

Kimonos aren't just summer pieces for me. I like to wear them in spring and autumn too! They just add an extra level of interest to an otherwise plain shorts and tee outfit. With the outfits below, I picked a kimono where the print matched the colour of the tee I was wearing. You know I like a little matchy-matchy!

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this aquamarine bag with purple, I really like the combination. It was the perfect accessory to pair with the purple v-neck tee and the purple floral kimono.

Busy morning with a few errands to run and a quick dentist appointment for toddler T before his swimming lessons. He did really well, helped I'm sure by the fact that they were playing Paw Patrol on the TV in the ceiling, he just laid back and watched the show the whole time, haha!

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another day with the kids trying to run errands meant another simple outfit was needed. When I got this coral tee home after picking it up in the sales, I knew I had to try this outfit combination with it, and wore it just a couple days after buying the tee. The bright coral colour was such a good match for the orangey reds in the print of this Kindness collective kimono! Such a winning combination paired together.

While it wasn't a very exciting day, I did love wearing this outfit and I am sure to try pairing this coral tee and the printed kimono together again soon! Such a fun bit of matchy-matchy-ness!

Stuck with silver for the accessories, with the silver pendant necklace and Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag to be a balancing neutral for all the colour and print.

How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is such a staple outfit. To add a little extra interest to your outfit, you can put a fun printed kimono on top. It's a nice way to change up the look of a shorts and tee outfit without much fuss. If you're unsure, you can always pick a kimono with a print that matches the colour of the tee you're wearing for an easy, cohesive look.

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.

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.

Perfect for pregnancyleaf print silk skirt in second trimester, Marc Jacobs mouse flats in second trimester, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag in third trimester.


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.
