Blue and Black: Printed Leather Jacket, Balenciaga Magenta Work, Jacquard Pencil Skirt | Spotty Dress, Maroon Scarf, Part Time Bag

Linking up with "what I wore to work" at Mix and Match Fashion.

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:

BagBalenciaga RH work in 2005 Magenta


Please excuse my hair! I washed and plaited it the night before, intending to wake up with subtle waves. Instead, woke up with wet hair and no time to dry it before I went to work. It did dry into some nice waves later in the morning, but it is still really damp and dull in the photos!
Wearing my last new piece from my Glassons order back in mid-May. Glassons have a sale on now too, if you are looking for some affordable basics. Thought I would try something a little different today, and belted the top over the skirt instead of tucking it into the skirt. I think it worked well, and the belt was a nice pop of colour.


Last worn: printed leather jacket, pink belt, pencil skirt, mouse flats, Balenciaga magenta work. First time I've worn the top as it is a recent purchase.

Had to work a bit of maroon into my outfit today with the State of Origin match tonight! This scarf was perfect. Although I don't watch footy, lots of people at work are quite into the game and you see people walking around wearing the shirts or maroon items. While it is unofficial casual day as everyone is wearing team shirts, I had to present at a meeting so wore a printed dress.


Last worn: warehouse blazer, French Connection dress, Marc Jacobs flats, Balenciaga part time. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog, it was a lovely gift from a friend.

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:

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.

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).

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.

Office Style: Textured Pencil Skirts, Black Tanks and Magenta Balenciaga Day Bag

Wearing my magenta Balenciaga day bag again in my favourite colour combo with navy pencil skirts for work. I just love pink and blue together. I kept things simple with these outfits, basic black tanks and pretty textured pencil skirts with that fun bag for a pop of colour.

It is winter in Brisbane now though so I did add some cosier elements - a wool cardigan and black ankle boots.

What I wore:

jersey blazer, black tank and lace pencil skirt business casual office outfit | away from blue

blue lace pencil skirt and magenta balenciaga 05 day bag | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram blue lace pencil skirt black tank blazer business casual office outfit
JacketZara cream jersey blazer
NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TankJeanswest Brianna basque hem tank
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

This is such a simple outfit combination, with the textured skirt, neutral basic tank and blazer. I felt that the magenta Balenciaga day bag added just the right amount of contrasting colour and interest to this outfit.

The blazer and skirt go so nicely together, with the cream base of the skirt, but I wasn't 100% sure on the ankle boots with this. Being so cold in the morning I wasn't up for trying ballet flats though, so ankle boots it was. I think the black tank balanced it all out nicely, and while this is a simple outfit I really liked how it all worked together.

Another thing I liked about this outfit was that it got me closer to my 30 wears goals. Both the jersey blazer and lace skirt are just a few wears away from 30 wears each. This is part of the reason why they've been worn so frequently lately too.


Last worn: cream jersey blazer, black basque tank, lace pencil skirt, black ankle boots, magenta Balenciaga day bag.

Necklace: Lovisa wooden statement bead necklace

SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

This is one of the outfits that I don't feel photographed well. I had been planning to wear another one of my jersey blazer with this, but had been eying up my recently unboxed winter cardigans before I went to bed the night before. I woke up in the morning and it was cold and I decided to swap the blazer for this cosy wool maxi cardigan. I did add a blazer in my bag to wear in the office though as I was leading an important meeting that afternoon.

With the wool cardigan and black ankle boots, I felt so cosy for my early morning commute, and I loved how comfortable this outfit was. When I looked back at the photos I don't think they managed to capture it well - but I did have such high thoughts of this outfit, ha! It was one of the best ones I've worn in a while I felt, even if it falls flat on the photos. I think a different necklace might have looked better in the photos.

Textured Pencil Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It

Pretty textured pencil skirts add a lot of interest to your outfit. They don't have to be tricky to wear though, you can easily pair them with neutral basics like these black tanks. Keeping the rest of your outfit neutral allows you to add in another colour to your outfit like this bright pink bag. And of course, many offices require you cover up a sleeveless tank. A blazer is perfect for that!

Printed Maxi Dresses & Pink Balenciaga Bags

The simplest outfit of all has to be a printed dress, and you'll know if you've read my blog a while that maxi dresses are my favourite! I wore both of these recently for different occasions - a maxi dress works for so many events.

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Second wearing of my Christmas dress! I bought this dress back in October. I usually stick to my 'wear twice in the month I buy it' rule for fashion purchases, but decided to treat myself to a new dress for Christmas and put this aside until the day.

This time around, I wore it to head over to my parents for dinner. Nothing formal, just another excuse for me to wear this pretty dress! These studded Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals are a staple for me over summer - the neutral shade just goes with everything - and were an obvious choice with the dress.

I thought the magenta Balenciaga day bag would work nicely with the pink and the purple in the print. While not an exact match to the shade of pink in the dress, I still really liked this combination together. I thought the navy and gold tassel necklace was a good pairing with the dress too.

Unfortunately I managed to break (and kinda repair) this necklace part way through the evening. It's not quite as symmetrical now, although it is back in one piece! Despite breaking the necklace, we had such a nice time at my parents.


Last worn: high-low maxi dress, navy tassel necklace, gladiator sandals, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

This outfit was for a much more casual occasion, although I again opted for the ease of a maxi dress. We had an early morning start to surprise hubby at the airport as he arrived after a week away in America. An even earlier start than expected as his plane arrived 20 minutes ahead of time, so instead of leisurely getting ready I had to hurry up and get us all fed and dressed and drive to the airport. In the end I probably didn't need to get there as early as I did, his plane was only actually 10 minutes early in the end, but as we were surprising him and he wasn't expecting to see us, I wanted to be there ready with our signs so he'd see us as soon as he stepped through customs.

Since I wanted to put in a little bit of effort into my outfit, I went with my trusty blue maxi dress. It's just as comfortable as pyjamas when you're sitting around at the airport waiting for someone to arrive! I've worn it with pink before in the past, I really like blue and pink together. I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag with it before though! I really liked the combination.

I picked a pink necklace which kind of matched, and my sorbet Balenciaga studded sandals which matched the bag exactly. Simple accessorising for the morning rush!

Printed Maxi Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed maxi dress is such a time saver, it's an instant outfit. They are easy to accessorise too! You can pick similar colours out of the print to wear in your accessories and add some neutral pieces like in the first outfit, or just pick a contrasting colour and wear that in all your accessories like I have in the second outfit.

Maternity Tanks, Prints and Pencil Skirts: Third Trimester Office Wear with Balenciaga Magenta Day Bag

My January purchases and some third trimester office wear. Although I'm trying not to dress too casually for work, my maternity tanks are so comfortable I'm looking for ways to make them work in the office. Adding a blazer on top is a great way to do that!

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Third Trimester Print Mixing Paisley Scarf Tartan Plaid Pencil Skirt

AwayFromTheBlue | Zara Black Jersey Blazer Balenciaga 2005 magenta day hobo bag RH
ScarfJeanswest Lux paisley print scarf (C/O)
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
TankJeanswest maternity tank in white
SkirtAsos maternity panelled pencil skirt in tartan check (non-maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bag: Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

It was quite cold and rainy - but welcome as it broke the heatwave we'd been having. I did consider wearing pants in the morning and wished I had during the day. I liked the print mixing with the scarf and tartan pencil skirt together. This is my favourite blazer and although I can't button it over the baby bump it works well unbuttoned. Just as perfect for the office as it is with jeans.


Last worn: Zara blazer, printed scarf, white maternity tank, tartan pencil skirt, silver tuxedo flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

Other ways to wearjersey blazer and a printed dress, printed scarf and chambray, maternity tank and a maxi skirt, tartan pencil skirt with brown and orange, silver tuxedo flats and a maxi dress, Balenciaga magenta day bag and a graphic tee.





What I wore:

Away From Blue | Third Trimester Office Wear Pencil skirt printed maternity tank

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga 05 magenta purple day bag silver turquoise bracelet stack
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace layered with custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Tank: Jeanswest Sol maternity jacquard tank (new purchase)
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt (also available in black or stripes)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey (on sale in black)
Bracelets: the usual plus turquoise and silver beaded bracelet set
Bag: Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

This tank is another of my post-Christmas sale purchases. You can tell I had some Jeanswest gift vouchers to spend! I wouldn't normally be able to wear this skirt in the third trimester, but as the maternity tank is so long I was able to wear the elastic waist of the skirt under the bump and have the tank cover up all of the baby belly and then some. I was actually able to tuck the tank into the skirt. Benefits of being petite, maternity tanks are quite long.

In contrast to the previous outfit above, this was such a hot day. I took the blazer off after these pictures and just wore it around the office to keep my shoulders covered. It was much too hot and humid to wear it long on the commute.


Last worn: waterfall drape jacket, grey marle pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga Magenta Day bag (above). First time I've worn the tank as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearwaterfall drape jacket and printed shorts, grey pencil skirt layered for winter, studded mouse flats and a printed dress, Balenciaga Magenta Day bag and a maxi skirt.


January Purchases



Continuing on with recording what I buy each month and keeping a track of how many times I wear things, here's what I bought in January and at the end of December in the post-Christmas sales.






That's a lot! I had some gift cards to spend and there were so many good sales on....so far the most worn items have been the maternity bras. I don't usually talk underwear on the blog but a good maternity bra is a pregnancy and breastfeeding essential and these two are just so perfect!

I don't anticipate buying any more clothing until after baby arrives, so there are likely to be few monthly haul videos for a while. I'm not entirely ruling out getting some accessories though.... ;)

More pink accessories! I just wanted to carry my magenta work today, so a simple black and grey outfit with another pink leopard scarf too :) Nice comfortable outfit for casual Friday.

There was a bit of a stir at lunch time today - we were all kept inside the office as there was a gunman in Queen street in the Brisbane CBD. It was pretty scary at first, but the police handled it so well and kept everybody safe. We spent most of our lunch huddled round a few screens watching the news streams trying to find out more information. Very relived to see it end safely.

Last Friday I went shopping in the French Connection sale as I had my eye on a lovely peplum top. Unfortunately, they were all sold out in my size, but this beautiful dress I saw while browsing was the perfect fit :) I love the little pockets it has, which I'm trying my best to show in the photo. There's a reason I'm not a graceful model, haha.

Wore this to work, and a surprise lunchtime outing to see Ricky Martin in Queen Street mall. My friend had heard that he was going to be there, and judging by the crowd, everyone else had heard too! Nice little distraction for a Wednesday.


Last worn: leather jacket, wittner shoes, Balenciaga work. First time I've worn the dress as it is a new purchase.

Interesting day today! Spent the day relaxing before heading into the office. Scheduled this post as I'm going into the office to work this evening. We get to wear casual clothes, so my awesome Church Online tee gets an outing. One of the many perks for volunteering at Church Online, they keep my tee collection growing :) Took a different detail shot today to show off the back.

The project I've been working on for over a year is going live this weekend, and that's why we are working. I'm extremely excited, so working on a Saturday night doesn't seem so bad. My favourite team members will be there in the office too. Wish us luck! :)
