Green and Yellow Worn Two Ways: Jeans and Tee | Weekday Wear Link Up

Jeans and and a tee again! It was my home isolation outfit of choice back when I wanted to get out of pyjamas or loungewear, but also didn't want to put in too much effort if I wasn't going anywhere.

This time I round I paired my yellow tees with green jeans and some cardigans, as the autumn weather had truly arrived in Brisbane and the extra layer was needed. Now it's properly winter and a few more layers are required.

What I wore:

awayfromtheblue Instagram| grey cardigan with pastel yellow tee and olive skinny jeans
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this yellow tee with olive - it looked nice with my olive shorts so I knew I'd wear it with these olive jeans in the cooler weather. I really liked the combination, i think the muted shades work so well together. I added a necklace for a little bit of extra interest to my outfit and I think with the long necklace and long grey cardigan the tee looked better untucked - it's a bit oversized so I usually tuck it in, but I liked the longer lines of this outfit.

The grey cardigan wasn't quite as cosy as my daggy old bathrobe I usually wear around the house, but it was a more formal choice for a couple of zoom sessions I had on that day!

Why I wore it:

This was a much bolder outfit with the mustard tee and the green skinny jeans. Again, this isn't a new colour combination for me, I love wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with these green jeans, but it was the first time I'd worn this mustard tee and jeans together. As it was such a cold morning and I had to pop out to the post office, I added another colour to my outfit with this cosy navy cardigan.

Again, I've worn this navy cardigan with the green jeans before, but I really liked the way the trio of colours worked together in this outfit. Especially with the matching navy necklace! The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag was a nice neutral with all of the colours in my outfit, and it was still packed and ready to go after my last trip out the house a few days before.

Two Ways To Wear a Graphic Tee With Printed Pieces

With working from home, I'm wearing a lot of tees when I do get out of loungewear or pyjamas. Thankfully over the past few years of motherhood I've realised tees are a wardrobe staple for me and I have a few in my wardrobe!

Today I'm continuing the tee wearing and sharing two different ways I recently wore a couple of graphic tees, both with other printed pieces in my outfit.

What I wore:


navy graphic tee and red printed maxi skirt | stay at home style Away From Blue

Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
Skirtthrifted Billabong 'Don't Think Of It' bikini red printed maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This maxi skirt is a great work from home piece as it's so comfortable with the elastic waist! And all that fabric is like having your legs wrapped up in a blanket 😂

I wear this red maxi skirt with navy a lot, I really like the combination. This is the first time I've worn this graphic tee with it though, I wasn't sure if the print on the tee would be too much with the print on the skirt. Isolating at home was the perfect time to give this new combination a try, as aside from the postman and some neighbours, oh and my in laws, no one saw this outfit. I really liked it though and I'm happy I tried these two things together!


Last worn: navy graphic tee, red printed maxi skirt, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearnavy graphic tee and shorts, red printed maxi skirt and leather jacket.


What Bag I'd Wear With These Outfits:

If I was still using and enjoying my handbag collection and not worried about transferring germs inside the house whenever I swapped them out, this would be the bag I'd wear with these outfits - the metallic silver goes with everything!






What I wore:

floral kimono and primark Edinburgh graphic tee olive skinny jeans | away from the blue

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This was another opportunity to try something new, with a graphic tee and floral print. I wore this when I was so close to 30 wears of this floral kimono, thought I'd try something a little different and wear it with this Edinburgh graphic tee I picked up on our Europe trip last year.  I thought the blue in the graphic would work nicely with the navy kimono. Plus it was a nice way to change it up a little as I've worn this tee and olive jeans together before.

Not 100% sure this worked, not one of my favourite outfits but it was fun to try. And with the olive jeans it was comfortable and warm for a quick trip to the post office after helping the kids complete their online learning at home. So good that the schools are back so I don't have to struggle with online learning for a 4 and 5 year old any more!

How You Can Wear It

A graphic tee is something that looks good with skirts or jeans! To try mix it up a little you can pair a graphic tee with another printed piece in your outfit, like these outfits with the maxi skirt or kimono.

Graphic Tees & Skinny Jeans: Working From Home Style | Weekday Wear Link Up

Keeping it simple for my working from home style during isolation, with graphic tees and skinny jeans. Both of these jeans are extremely comfortable, perfect for sitting at my computer and yet practical for jumping up every few minutes to help the kids with their online learning, or to get them yet another snack 😂

What I wore:

floral kimono, mickey mouse graphic tee and skinny jeans | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | navy floral kimono with black skinny jeans, mickey mouse graphic tee
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's crazy to think I first wore this tee a year ago when we were in Disneyland Paris, as part of our Europe trip. Seems like a lifetime ago now, especially with all the changes around the world and the travel restrictions. It was fun to wear this again, I did the cliche "get everyone Mickey tees to wear to Disneyland" thing and I wasn't sure how much wear it would get afterwards but I have worn it a handful of times. Much more than I expected. It's super soft and has such good memories attached.

The floral kimono was needed in the cooler morning, as it was a bit of a dressier option than my usual dressing gown for staying warm! I did end up taking it off at lunchtime though.

Really liked how this outfit turned out - the high amount of stretch in these Nobody denim skinny jeans make them so comfortable to wear!


Last worn: floral kimono, Mickey Mouse tee, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, Havaianas.

What Bag I'd Wear With These Outfits:

While I'm at home my bags are staying in my wardrobe, but if I was wearing these outfits outside the house I'd wear this bag with them. It's the perfect neutral.






What I wore:

blue and olive band tee and jeans outfit kisschasy work from home style | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | kisschasy blue band tee with olive skinny jeans
Tee: Kisschasy blue tape band tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas


Why I wore it:

Another pair of super comfortably jeans, I actually wore these on our long-haul flights from Brisbane to Europe last year - very comfortable for being at home. Again, it was nice to get out of the pyjamas and loungewear I've been wearing a lot lately while isolating at home with social distancing.

This Kisschasy tee hasn't got a lot of wear - it was from one of their earlier tours, but after Jess had a challenge to wear band tees it got me going through my big box of tees from concerts I went to pre-kids and I found this. I realised this should come into my regular wardrobe, it's fun to wear. I like how the lighter blue went with these olive skinny jeans too! I've worn them a lot with navy in the past, it's nice to try a different shade.


Last worn: Kisschasy band tee, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas (above).

How You Can Wear It:

A graphic tee is a wardrobe staple and looks great with any colour of denim, as you can see here with these different jeans. Isolating at home make sure you pick jeans with a lot of stretch to help you feel pulled together but not uncomfortable!

Weekday Wear Linkup: Maxi Skirts and Leopard Print Tees

Simple work from home style for today's Weekday Wear Link Up! Wearing the last things I thrifted before the opshops shut down due to coronavirus, these beautiful maxi skirts. With them being plain block colours I decided to wear my leopard print tees with them. Such easy outfits, but I felt really pulled together!

What I wore:

Sass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print with navy thrifted maxi skirt | awayfromblue

awayfromBlue Instagram | SAHM work from home isolation style neon leopard print sass bide tee with navy maxi skirt thrifted
Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This Sass and Bide neon leopard print tee is a favourite, it's one I don't frequently wear but every time I do I love it! It's a cropped style, which means it's just a normal length on my petite self, and so I didn't tuck it into the skirt at all, just left it loose. It was a hot day although it's autumn in Brisbane and this was a cool and comfortable outfit to wear. I really liked the orange leopard print with the navy maxi skirt too, navy and orange look so good together.

Two bloggers I follow, Sheila and Ivana, recently wore similar outfits too! Definitely a great silhouette.

The only thing that didn't go so well with this outfit was that it got covered in chalk when the boys did some chalk art in the afternoon. Getting dressed for isolation at home with a 4 and 5 year old is tough as my clothes never stay clean long, ha!


Last worn: neon leopard print tee, leaf necklace, thrifted navy maxi skirt, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearneon leopard print tee and jeans, thrifted navy maxi skirt with stripes.

Perfect for pregnancyneon leopard print tee in first trimester.



Wardrobe Tour (And Handbag Storage!)







What I wore:

kmart statement necklace and grey leopard print tee outfit with ochre maxi skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | workign from home isolation outfit leopard print tee ochre maxi skirt affordable kmart thrifted style
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This is such an affordable outfit! The ochre maxi skirt was an opshop bargain at just $4, I picked the leopard print tee up for just $2 at Kmart and the necklace is Kmart too! Not wearing my bags every day has highlighted to me how affordable my wardrobe really is - if you don't include the designer bags! 😂

I liked the leopard print tee and the skirt together, but the outfit felt like it was missing a little something. This necklace was the perfect topper, and just like the outfit above while it was quick to pull together it helped me feel a little more dressed up. I don't always wear proper clothes when I'm working from home, there's a lot of loungewear or pyjama days in isolation, as I mentioned above it's hard to justify a nice outfit when the kids will mess it up before the end of the day. But it's a good change to wear proper clothes when the in laws come to visit or when I know I have a few meetings!


Last worn: grey leopard print tee, blue and gold beaded necklace, ochre maxi skirt, Havaianas (above).

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A leopard print tee is a fun twist on a basic tee. You can keep your outfit simple and let the tee be the star by picking a block coloured maxi skirt. Denim works equally well too!

22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee: Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing a bright and colourful outfit I wore to work from home, and sadly the last wearing of this grey tee, so I'm looking back at the 22 wears I managed to get from it!

What I wore:

work from home colourful style with magenta skinny jeans grey tee and floral navy kimono | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy floral cocoon blanket kimono with grey tee magenta skinny jeans
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Tee: Atmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
PantsSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate Jeans in magenta
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I adore this tee - so much so that I bought it in three colours! I have a burgundy one, this grey one and a black one. The black one has already left my wardrobe, I was hoping to get this grey tee to 30 wears but this last wear just confirmed to me it's stretched out just like the other black tee, sadly!

The super soft and stretchy fabric has elastane in it, which while making it very soft also doesn't survive a lot of heavy duty washes (and during breastfeeding a while ago I had to wash everything at 60℃, breastfeeding mums will know the pain!). This tee was frequently worn then but seemed to be coping much better than the black one and keeping its shape well. Until I realised I was constantly tugging and pulling at it all day, even though I wasn't doing anything too adventurous and just working from home. I'm sad it's left my wardrobe after just 22 wears, but it did last longer than the black version and it was my own fault not caring for it properly!

Issues with the tee aside, I really liked this outfit! In the cooler morning and with a video call booked in for work, I swapped my usual stay at home loungewear for this slouchy tee and the colourful but cosy floral kimono. I love how the navy with the pink flowers went with the magenta skinny jeans!


Last worn: floral kimono, beaded necklace, grey tee, Havaianas, Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and maxi dress, grey tee and maxi skirt, Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans and blazer.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral kimono at 39 weeks, grey tee in second trimester.


22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee


Much like the time I showed you 30 ways to wear a (different) grey tee, I wear this a lot with denim! I was hoping to hit 30 wears with this tee but it was just too annoying to wear - I like comfortable clothes, I don't like to be pulling or fussing with what I wear! I also don't like worrying about the neckline creeping down when I'm on a work call!

I got it on sale for $17.46 from The Iconic, back in 2014 when I could never resist an Atmos & Here sale at The Iconic! It's definitely my most worn of the three colours I have this tee in, even though it didn't hit my goal of getting worn 30 times. It works out to 79 cents a wear, which isn't too bad, but I really wish I'd got more wears from it!

Here are some of the ways I styled it over the years:


Grey Tee and Blue Denim

5 ways to wear a grey tee and blue denim | awayfromtheblue

The most classic outfit you can ever have - a grey tee and blue denim. Shorts jeans, a grey tee works in all seasons. And you can always add a necklace, bag or kimono (or all three!) for a little extra colour.


Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfit

3 grey tee monochrome outfit ideas | away from blue

Such a simple way to wear a grey tee - just add something black like a skirt or jeans, and you have an easy monochrome outfit. Adding a bright necklace or bag is a good way to introduce a colour pop if you don't want to stick to just black and white.



Grey Tee and Colourful Pants

5 ways to wear a grey tee and colourful pants | awayfromtheblue

Of course it's not just blue jeans a grey tee works with! I liked wearing this grey tee with my more colourful jeans and pants, the neutral goes with any colour.


Grey Tee and Print Mixing

3 print mixing outfit ideas with a grey tee | away from blue
Taking advantage of this neutral grey tee as the base of an outfit, it lets me add in brightly coloured scarves and even a little bit of print mixing! From the subtle striped cardigan and leopard scarf, or the bolder chevron jeans and magenta skull scarf, the grey tee is a great backdrop for a mix of prints.



Grey Tee and Maxis

grey tees and maxi skirt 6 mum style outfit ideas | away from the blue

A grey tee is as much of a staple in my wardrobe as maxi skirts. It's an easy outfit for a warmer day, this grey tee goes with any colour or print of skirt. I've even layered it over a blue maxi dress before too, as you can see at the bottom there.

Denim Shorts, Printed Kimonos And V-Neck Tees With Micro Bedford Bag

I have a pretty basic casual stay at home isolation style, but when I do leave the house I'm taking the opportunity to wear one of my beloved handbags and kimonos. Even if I feel a little over dressed!

What I wore:

navy floral kimono with yellow tee distressed denim shorts mum style | awayfromblue

yellow tee, floral kimono and navy Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | navy floral kimono with yellow tee and distressed denim shorts mum style
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
TeeJeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Shorts: thrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Wore this to visit the doctors, before they had moved to telehealth appointments. I've been at this doctor's surgery for over a decade, so it was nice being able to talk to a trusted medical professional about everything that's happening and the best ways to keep the kids safe. It was a strange experience with waiting in our car before being called in to go through to the doctor - the waiting room has been striped back to just a handful of chairs for social distancing!

Wanted to be bright and colourful so tried this pastel yellow tee with the navy floral kimono. I really liked the combination, even if I did really feel like a necklace would have been the final finishing touch! (I've mentioned before due to how often the kids and I play with my necklaces I don't feel safe wearing them outside the house, trying to minimise how many times I touch things and reduce the risk of transferring germs).

I did accessorise with the Rebecca Minkoff micro Beford bag - it's so cute in navy and goes with everything, which is helpful as it's one of the two "outdoors" bags I have, again to try minimise the germs!


Last worn: floral kimono, yellow tee, distressed denim shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and jeans, yellow tee with olive, distressed denim shorts and printed tee, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag with green.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral kimono at 39 weeks.

JacketThe Kindness Collective 'Kaleidoscope Dreams' printed kimono
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I felt that the kids needed to get out the house so we took Cooper on a short walk around the neighbourhood. Since hubby has been working from home as well, whenever I have needed to go out for groceries they have stayed home with him, and the schools are closed so there are no other outings and they needed to get out. It was good to see something outside our fence, and while we did see people out as well we kept a safe distance, with social distancing in place.

I felt a little overdressed for walking the dog, especially with the matchy-matchy purple tee and purple printed kimono, but when we saw a few neighbours outside too I was glad I'd changed out of my loungewear!

I only needed my phone and keys but brought this little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag along anyway as it was a good excuse to give it another wear. Cooper being chased by the kids all day every day now means he doesn't need as many walks as usual, and my knee injury means I can't walk very far anyway, but it was still good to get outside the house.


Last worn: purple kimono, lilac tee, black denim shorts, New Balance (above), Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford (above).

Printed Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed kimono is a fun finishing layer with a staple shorts and tee outfit. It's a great way to add more colour and print. You can try contrasting colours like I have in the first outfit, or be a little more matching like in the second outfit.

Striped Tees and Shorts To Stay At Home - Weekday Wear Link Up

Usually in April I'd be wishing for the autumn weather to finally arrive, but I'm not complaining that the temps are still in the 30s (86 F) as it means I can dress super simply at home, in just shorts and a tee. The boys are enjoying being able to play in our back yard during our isolation so much too!



What I wore:

thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee with black denim shorts stay at home mum isolation style | awayfromblue


Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

Simple shorts and tee outfit for a hot day! I had a zoom call with some Insta ladies in the morning that was fun, before I had to quickly sign off when a tradie arrived at the house. We had a driveway visit from people with gifts for the boys as well. It was so funny, me asking them if the boys could come out the house (to stand 1.5 meters apart of course!) and them asking us if we were okay with that! We are all figuring out social distancing still.

It had been a bit of a stressful week with working at home and looking after the kids, so I was really looking forward to this day where I didn't have to work and could just teach the kids and relax and play together. Hubby went and did the grocery run too so I didn't have to deal with that stress!


Last worn: coca cola logo tee, black denim shorts, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearcoca cola logo tee worn two ways, black denim shorts and kimono.


The Bag I Would Be Wearing If I Wasn't At Home:




If I wasn't at home all day I think I'd be wearing this cute little Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag with these outfits! I miss wearing my handbag collection, but aside from the two bags I was using when the new social distancing / stay at home rules came into effect I've left my bags untouched in their cupboard. I don't see the point in getting them out just to snap a pic and put them back away!







What I wore:

Atmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee with long necklace and distressed denim shorts | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram | work from home outfit stripe navy tee with distressed denim shorts
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Shorts: thrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

Wore this to work from home. I've mentioned before that I've stopped wearing necklaces outside - I like to play with them when I'm wearing them and frequently touch them - not a good idea when I'm out grocery shopping and touching all the things and then transferring that to my necklaces! But for a day at home I figured I could accessorise a little. Both the boys and I like playing with this necklace!

My mother in law came over for a visit - despite the "stay at home unless essential visits" rules and my in laws being in the at risk category. I did try protest. We are following all the advice and staying home, as are all of my side of the family, except those who are the real heroes, the essential workers.

Kept it simple with the striped tee and denim shorts - easy and comfortable and a bit more appropriate for having someone over than the pyjamas I wore to work from home the day before 😂

How You Can Wear It:
