Two Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt in Winter

Back in April, Beth over at Almost Posh blogged about a beautiful chambray maxi skirt. I fell in love with everything about it except the price. I added it to my Iconic wishlist anyway and waited for a sale. 2 months later it finally went on sale and I had an extra % off discount code so it was the perfect time to buy!

What I wore:

Blue chambray maxi skirt pink and purple accessories | Away From Blue

Mulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey and chambray maxi skirt | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketJeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink (on sale in black and white!)
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top (new purchase, on sale!)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt (new purchase, on sale!)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white (on sale in red!)
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

Sine The Iconic share measurements for most of their items, I knew this skirt would be too long for my petite self. However when I got it I was pleased to find I could wear it right away...just by pulling it up super high. The elasticated waist helped! Felt really happy in this all day, and cosy for a morning at playgroup with the boys. The wrap top is a new purchase too, although the wrapped portions are held together with a stitch you can open it up below there so it's easy to breastfeed in.


Last worn: purple cardigan, skull scarf, Converse, Mulberry Alexa. First time I've worn the wrap top and chambray skirt as they are new purchases.

I might be doing #noBuyJuly16 and avoiding the sales, but there are some great bargains to be had in the final reductions at a few places:

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt (on sale!)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats (on sale!)
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

I liked the pink and purple the first time I wore this maxi skirt, so decided to wear it with purple again. Blue and purple is one of those colour combinations I love to wear.

I didn't like this outfit as much as the first one though. It had been raining early in the morning and so when we hopped out the car at the post office I stepped right in a puddle, wetting the hem of the skirt. It just dragged the skirt down to my waist again, making it much too long. By the time we'd arrived at the ABA group catch up I was regretting my decision to wear this without belting it in place or without getting it hemmed first.


As it's the second time I've worn this skirt, my purchase review:
I adore this skirt. So much that I wore it twice before getting it hemmed as I was too eager to wear it!
Once I find a new tailor to hem this skirt it will get worn a lot more often - it really is perfect in every way except the length. It has pockets! Even with the cost of a tailor it's still a pretty affordable skirt, and I did know I'd need to get it taken up so I'm happy with this purchase.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, grey cardigan, purple scarf, striped tee, chambray maxi skirt (above), ballet flats, Mulberry Alexa (above).

Other ways to weargrey cardigan and flares, purple scarf and skinny jeans, striped tee with orange, ballet flats and skinny jeans, Mulberry Alexa and denim shorts.

Two Ways to Wear Denim Maxi Skirt in Summer: Printed and Plain Tanks

Last time I did a ways to wear post on this skirt it was winter. I've been wearing it a lot lately so thought it was time to do a 2 ways to wear post for summer, with some basic tanks.

Despite the chambray being a bit of a pain to iron I'm really glad I got this skirt. I'd been thinking about a denim maxi for a while before I got this one. I still have a lot of outfit ideas for it. It's so simple to wear.

What I wore:

trapeze striped tank chamrbay maxi skirt summer style SAHM outfit balenciaga Day bag | AwayFromBlue

Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete SGH | AwayFromTheBlue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Charlotte teething necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

It had been a while since I last wore this striped tank and it met a few of the days style challenges on Instagram. I wasn't sure how the trapeze style tank would work with the voluminous maxi skirt but half-tucked in it works.

I tend to do a half-tuck with most of my tops, it's a style trick I use when looking for different ways to wear things as well as when I need to stop things overwhelming my petite frame. I really liked this outfit, ideal for running a few errands. I liked it last time I wore this chambray skirt with stripes too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarerstriped tankchambray maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga tempete Day bag.

Other ways to wearstripe tank and flares, monochrome outfit with chambray maxi skirt, Balenciaga tempete Day bag and shorts.

Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (on sale!)
NailsOPI Breakfast at Tiffany collection 'I believe in manicures' and 'Sunrise...bedtime'

Why I wore it:

Although it's the 11th time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt, it's the first time I've tucked a top in to show off the elastic waistband. Maxi skirts with elastic waists are the most comfortable item of clothing I own, even though they look like you put more effort when compared to jeans. I wore them a lot in the post-partum days, after enjoying their stretchiness across pregnancy.

Hit just two style challenges on Instagram as I wore this to the annual Chinese New Year banquet with the in-laws and wanted to wear something red - this tank being the only red thing I can breastfeed in (and even then it's not ideal for feeding). I did briefly consider wearing shorts and my red kimono, but wanted to look a little more dressed up for dinner so a maxi skirt was perfect. The yellow bag and teething necklace aren't quite gold, but it was as close as I could get to a red and gold outfit while staying baby-friendly!


Last worn: red tank, chambray maxi skirt (above), gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mustard yellow Regan bag.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with Louis Vuitton neverfull for themepark mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.


Last worn: denim jacket, Mickey mouse tee, chambray maxi skirt, glitter sneakers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | chambray skirt graphic tee and leather jacket winter mum style
JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.

Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.

Embellished Tanks and Maxi Skirts With Balenciaga Tempete Day Bag

The thing I like about maxi skirts is that they never feel over or under dressed. When wearing both of these maxi skirts below I added some embellished tanks to make them feel just a little more dressed up, and a little more festive for the parties we were going to (back in December!).

What I wore:

Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Fashion Scarf Girl Navy and Gold hair scarf (c/o) tied in bow
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I wore this to the boys daycare party. I'd just worn shorts and a tee earlier in the day, but swapped to this as the maxi skirt gave me more coverage, and I wanted the bigger bag. I'm glad I picked this bag, they got so many things I had to hold and it was nice being hands free! The style challenge for the day was 'sequins and sparkle' so this sequin embellished tank was perfect, and probably overdue a wear! It's been a while since I last wore it.

The boys had a wonderful night at the party, and I was grateful for having picked the maxi skirt to wear with all the running around after them I did and bending down to toddler level!

BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much, I repeated a similar thing a few days later. I picked this ombre beaded tank which is such a special piece but again, like the sequin tank above, so sparingly worn due to how delicate it is. Life with two boys under 5 requires a bit of consideration when wearing delicate pieces!

I really liked the pink and blue together of the ombre tank and chambray skirt, and the studded sandals were a simple option. We had a busy day, with the final Christmas food shop in the morning and then a party with our church friends down the coast. This was the perfect outfit to feel cool and pulled together for all those events. I was relieved to see that Woolies wasn't as busy as I anticipated and I grabbed the groceries quite quickly, but it was definitely getting busier as we left.

Embellished Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Anything with a little extra embellishment will feel a bit more pulled together when you add it to an outfit. A simple maxi skirt looks more dressed up when you add an embellished tank, but it creates a simple outfit option, ideal for running around after kids at parties!

Chambray and Pink: Different Shades and Lengths with Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

I've shared many times about my love for blue and pink together. I like wearing pink with denim, so when I wore two of my chambray pieces recently I paired them with two different shades of pink. A maxi skirt with a magenta pink tank and a dress with a dusty pink vest.

What I wore:

Sass & Bide neon tank chambray noisy may denim maxi skirt teething necklace outfit | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TopSass and Bide 'Musical Genius' tank (similar, at 40% off!)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Pulled this together at the last minute to go out for dinner with the in-laws. The style challenge for the day was 'denim your way', this chambray maxi skirt was brilliant as although it was evening it was still too warm for jeans or a denim jacket.

I wasn't sure what necklace to wear with this - the tank has magenta and neon orange with the neutrals, but I knew as we'd be going out to a restaurant I'd need a few tricks to keep Baby Boy amused. As suspected, the necklace came in handy as he could play and fling it around without it actually going on the floor, unlike some of his other toys.... When trying on a few of the teething necklaces I have I was pleased to see how well this necklace matched the pink on the tank, I'm sure to wear this combination again!

Not the first time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt with magenta pink either!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Sass & Bide tank, chambray maxi skirt, two tone sandals, Rebecca Minkoff quilted love bag.

Other ways to wearSass & Bide tank and print mixing with stripes, chambray maxi skirt in winter, two tone sandals and printed skirt, Rebecca Minkoff quilted love bag and pink dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'layer player' but despite it being autumn, it was much too hot to think about layering. This sleeveless jacket is a good layering piece for hot days.

I was inspired to try this by seeing vests and dresses worn together on a few different blogs. I wasn't sure how this vest would work with the dress, so picked a quiet day to try it. Although I like the colour combination I wasn't sure how the shapes would work together. A quiet day running errands was good to give the new silhouette a try. Although not quite an outfit fail, I liked the idea of this outfit better than the actual resulting outfit. Blue and pink is a good colour combination, but these two pieces together weren't my favourite.

How You Can Wear It:



Try pairing your chambray with something pink. You can wear it with a little like a printed tank with only a small percentage of pink, or go all out and wear a pink vest or jacket with it. A pink scarf would be nice with chambray in cooler weather too.

Maxi Skirts in Cooler Weather with Longer Sleeve Tops

If you're a regular reader you'll know I love my maxi skirts! I like to wear them year-round. When it starts to get a little cooler, I swap out the tanks I usually wear with them for longer sleeved tops. The little extra warmth is helpful in the colder mornings and evenings. These outfits were worn when it started to cool off a little, but before our winter weather really arrived.

What I wore:

embroidered blouse, grey jersey maxi skirt silver mini MAC Bag | Away From Blue blog

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | AwayFromTheBlue blog
Skirt: Target grey marle maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale, 20% off!)
NailsRevlon 'Plum Seduction'


Why I wore it:

This was a nice quiet, relaxing day without much on when I checked Instagram as the boys napped and saw that Lightning McQueen was in Brisbane for the day. Quickly threw this on and packed the baby bag so that as soon as the boys were awake we were ready to go. While Baby Boy was a little too small to understand, the Cars mad toddler T loved it! Was definitely worth the last minute trip.

I did think about wearing a jacket with this as I knew it would be cool by the river, but I was babywearing with the Ergo so didn't want too many layers - it gets pretty hot with a toddler strapped to you! It's the same reason I didn't add a necklace to this - but the embroidery and tassels on the top mean I really don't need a necklace anyway. It felt a little cooler on the way home but overall I was pretty pleased with this outfit. I love this embroidered blouse, always enjoy wearing it.


Last worn: embroidered blouse, grey jersey maxi skirt, black Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

NailsRevlon 'Plum Seduction'


Why I wore it:

It's strange to be wearing this shirt when I'm just over a week away from successfully completing 6 months without shopping. I failed my no buy July challenge when I bought this shirt in 2015! Amazing how different it's been coping with the longer no-shop challenge a year and a half later. Will share a post next week with my tips and experience. After failing a 31 day no shop challenge I'm incredibly still staying strong with my 6 months challenge!


It's not the first time I've worn this shirt with a maxi skirt, although I did like this monochrome outfit better. I wasn't impressed with the way the shirt sat in photos, but I liked how this looked in person. Wore it to playgroup and a birthday party for one of Toddler T's friends. Thought the silver accessories were a good pairing with the monochrome blue outfit.


Last worn: blue floral shirt, chambray maxi skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wear: printed shirt in the officechambray maxi skirt worn two ways in summer, silver ballet flats and purple jeans, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and denim shorts.

Perfect for pregnancy: printed shirt while battling morning sicknessmetallic mini MAC and pink pregnancy dress.

How You Can Wear It:


Maxi skirts aren't just for summer! When the weather starts to cool in autumn, or it starts getting warmer in spring, you can easily wear your maxi skirt. Pick a longer sleeved top for a little extra warmth and some closed in shoes like ballet flats too to keep your toes cosy. Printed or embroidered tops look lovely with plain block colour maxi skirts like the ones I'm wearing.

Maxi Skirts and Printed Tanks With Denim Jacket and Rebecca Minkoff Mini Bags

Felt like it had been a while since I'd worn some of my maxi skirts, so it was time to get them out again! Pairing plain maxi skirts with printed tanks and a denim jacket to make the perfect spring outfit.

What I wore:

TopSass and Bide "For Easy Reference" tank

Why I wore it:

A busy day required a comfortable outfit. After doing the day care drop off, I worked from home before heading back to daycare and picking up the boys for an appointment in the afternoon.

As it was a slightly warmer day, I thought it was the perfect time to wear this maxi skirt. It has slits up both sides, so it was a little chilly last time I wore it in autumn, but was perfect for this warmer day. I really liked the simplicity of this outfit, and how comfortable it was! Every time I wear this printed tank I really like the outfit, I should wear it more often.

WIth all of the neutrals, the little purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag was the perfect pop of colour with my outfit.

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

A colourful outfit with some of my favourite pieces for a sad day! We had a service to close the chapter at our regular playgroup building. After our last week there, I felt it would be good to go and say thank you to everyone who helped us over the years, as lots of the people who worked there over the centre's 20 year history came back for the day.

The boys did so well through the service, although when it drew to a close and they mentioned it was time for morning tea, a certain little boy couldn't contain his excitement any longer and screamed 'MORNING TEA!', much to the amusement of the previously sad and reflective crowd. The funniest part was how many people came up to me afterwards and commented that is was just like him to do that - sums up my son so well, he always brings a smile to people's faces. Of course it wasn't long before the cake the boys were eating made its way onto my outfit!

I wasn't sure how formal the service would be so thought the denim jacket would be best to cover up my shoulders in this sleeveless tank, even if it was a bit warm and I ended up taking it off for the rest of the day. The colourful striped tank and bag were my attempt to bring some cheer to the day - it was a lovely way to have some closure after our time there (over three and a half years!) but sad all the same. I shed a few tears.

How You Can Wear It:

Plain maxi skirts are a nice spring option, especially when paired with a printed tank. it's a simple outfit formula, perfect for a busy mum. If it's a little cooler in the morning or evening, a denim jacket is a great layer.
