Maxi Dresses and Matching Bags

I've been wearing my maxi dresses often as they are the simplest outfit - grab and go! Accessorising is easy too. When in doubt you can always go monochrome with a bag that's a similar colour to your dress.

What I wore:

monochrome blue outfit different shades Jeanswest 'Chantelle' printed maxi dress | AwayFromBlue

navy printed maxi dress, Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete storm | AwayFromTheBlue
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
Bag:  Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I've worn almost the exact same outfit recently, I just wore Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals this time instead of my two-tone Wittner sandals. The Balenciaga day bag is a frequently repeated accessory with this dress too. While the navy blue of the dress isn't an identical match to the grey-blue of the Balenciaga bag, it's a combination I like to wear. Blue dress, blue bag and in this case a blue necklace just makes me happy because of all of the blue.

This blue maxi dress is the one I wore to Toddler T's first birthday party, so I had considered wearing it to Baby Boy's first birthday party too. Decided to wear another dress instead, and wore this to Baby Boy's birthday celebration at playgroup.


Last worn: blue printed maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Other ways to wearblue printed maxi dress and a baby bump, Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals and denim shorts, blue Balenciaga day bag with pink and purple.

Why I wore it:

Another playgroup outfit! I'd picked this maxi dress to wear as I'd been participating in the #AutumnStyleFile instagram style challenge and the theme for the day was a jumpsuit. Being petite, I don't have any jumpsuits or playsuits so this maxi dress as an all-in-one outfit seemed like a good alternative. Nice and easy for a morning running around with the boys too.

I added the yellow teething necklace as I felt the grey Love bag and tie dye dress together needed a little extra colour.

How You Can Wear It:


A printed maxi dress means there's a lot of print in your outfit, but it doesn't mean it's hard to accessorise. You can wear a bag in a similar colour for a monochrome outfit without a lot of effort. You can keep the rest of your accessories coordinating or add a pop of colour through a statement necklace.

Christmas Outfits: Red Santa Scarf Worn Three Ways

Happy Christmas Eve!

Like all of my blog posts, this one is scheduled in advance. I will be spending the day with my family. On Christmas Eve we decorate cookies, do Christmas crafts, and watch Christmas movies. To keep in the festive spirit, I'm sharing 3 of my recent Christmas themed outfits with this Santa scarf from Fashion Scarf Girl (c/o).


What I wore:

Christmas shopping outfit summer foil print sar tee and denim shorts, red Santa scarf and micro Avery bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram christmas shorts and tee outfit star print tee black denim shorts Santa scarf and red bag
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl red Santa scarf (c/o)
TeeJeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for our annual pre-Christmas shopping trip! All the girls in the family go out for the day, picking up last minute gifts for others and buying gifts for each other when we see things we have to have. It's such a fun tradition and even if we don't manage to buy a lot we always have a great time!

Last year I wore a pretty dress, but this year the kids came along so I thought shorts were a more practical choice! Added a little festivity to my printed tank and shorts outfit with this fun scarf. The red Rebecca Minkoff mini Avery bag was a nice bit of matchy matchy red too.


Last worn: star print foil tee, black denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearstar print foil tee worn two ways, black denim shorts in capsule wardrobe, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and dress.






What I wore:

Dressblack Jeanswest halterneck maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Another Christmas event, another opportunity to wear this Santa scarf! I wore it with black again, this plain black halterneck maxi dress was a lovely backdrop and really let the scarf shine. Perfect for an end of year celebration dinner with some other mums from my local Australian Breastfeeding Association. I quickly got changed after work into this, a simple outfit but so comfortable to wear for dinner.

As I was kid free, I made the most of it and picked this adorable little Rebecca Minkoff small love bag to hold my essentials. Another cheerful pop of colour!


Last worn: Jeanswest maxi dress, earrings, Santa scarf (above), silver cuff, Rebecca Minkoff Georgina sandals, Rebecca Minkoff pale coral small love bag.

Other ways to wearJeanswest maxi dress layered for winter, Rebecca Minkoff Georgina sandals and printed shorts, Rebecca Minkoff pale coral small love bag and skinny jeans.

TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Last but not least, wore this to take the boys to White Christmas at Movie World. It was the first time we've been to White Christmas and the first time the boys had been to Movie World! In December, the park opens for a few hours in the evening to allow you to enjoy the Christmas festivities.

With a big Christmas parade, snow falling and so many Christmas themed activities, the Santa scarf was an obvious choice. With a simple shorts and a tank outfit, as it was still hot and I had anticipated going on a lot of rides with the boys!

Again I paired the red Santa scarf with the Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag - it's such a nice combo!


Last worn: striped tank, distressed denim shorts, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag (above).

Other ways to wearstriped tank and purple jeans, distressed denim shorts and kimonosilver glitter sneakers and dress, Rebecca Minkoff Avery and skinny jeans.

(grab one in the sales for next year!)

How You Can Wear It:


An easy way to make an outfit festive without spending a lot is by adding an accessory. This Santa scarf works perfectly for winter, but what about a heart print scarf for Valentine's day, or a bunny printed clutch for Easter? Accessories are a cheap and cheerful way to change up an outfit and make it festive for an occasion.


No matter what you're wearing or what you're doing, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and get to experience God's peace and love in your life. Merry Christmas!

Maxi Skirts and Prints: Stripes and Leopard

I'm a fan of print mixing and I've worn stripes and leopard print together many times before. Sometimes it's just nice to let a print shine on it's own though, and wear a single printed piece with a plain basic, like I did with these maxi skirt outfits. Both outfits I wore with my Rebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush, a great neutral shoe!


What I wore:

metallic tank, navy stripe maxi skirt, grey Rebecca mInkoff Love bag | AwayFromBlue Blog

navy stripe maxi, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | AwayFromTheBlue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (extra 30% off sale price!)
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey
NailsOPI Rich Girls and Po Boys

Why I wore it:

I've worn this metallic tank with a printed maxi skirt and a striped maxi skirt before, but it's the first time I've worn these two together. I'm quite surprised I haven't worn them together before, it's a great combination. I've not worn this tank as much as I thought I had! I bought it in November before my #6MonthsWithoutShopping started, and this is only it's 5th wear in the 5 months I've had it. Actually paying more attention to the number of times I've worn things and not just seeing how long it is between wears has been an eye opener. It's helping me avoid shopping and stick to the challenge, as I know I won't wear new things I buy that much. I already have an overflowing wardrobe!


This was a casual and comfortable outfit, perfect for taking Baby Boy for his weekly weigh and spending time with my mum and sister in the afternoon.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, metallic tank, striped navy maxi skirt, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.

Other ways to wearmetallic tank worn two ways, striped navy maxi skirt with purple, studded gladiator sandals and pritned shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag and chambray.

What I wore:

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Had a quietish day with the boys, a couple of errands to run including stopping at the post office to mail some more parcels from my ebay auctions.

Almost every time I wear this tee I comment how long it's been between wears, so I'm making more of an effort to wear it. The neon tee and the grey maxi skirt is a combination I actually wanted to wear in pregnancy. I liked this yellow, orange and grey combination and wanted to try it with the leopard print rather than the stripes. Unfortunately while a loose fit, the tee is slightly cropped so it's not ideal for pregnancy wear with a baby bump making it ride up!

I'm glad I remembered to give the combination a try now I'm not pregnant, I really liked this. Grey is a great base to pair with such a brightly printed tee.

How You Can Wear It:


Basics don't have to be boring - they are great to pair with printed pieces in your wardrobe. If you have a printed item that you're not sure what to wear with it or how to wear it, grab a plain, block-colour basic piece and let the print be the statement in your outfit.

Denim Shorts, Kimonos, Fitted Tanks and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two incredibly similar outfits for dealing with the summer heat. Denim shorts, fitted tanks, printed kimonos and Rebecca Minkoff cross body bags.

I've written before about the lack of confidence I had wearing my fitted tanks after my last pregnancy. Since I've decided to embrace the mum-tum in fitted items just as much as I do in my bikini, I've been looking for more changes to wear the large collection of colourful tanks I have. They do make an easy outfit when paired with denim shorts and kimonos too.

What I wore:

Summer kimono denim shorts style grey tank silver bag | Away From Blue

Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC bag | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
JacketNew Look Petite print kimono
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
Tank: ASOS grey singlet
ShortsJeanswest printed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in gold!)
NailsOPI Breakfast at Tiffany collection 'I got the mean reds' and 'Sunrise...bedtime'

Why I wore it:

Although this is a simple outfit, it met a lot of style challenges for the day on Instagram. I liked the printed shorts with the printed kimono too, I wasn't sure it would work at first but was happy when I put it on. The shorts have such a subtle print they are easy to wear, and it's not the first time I've worn them with a printed kimono.

This was perfect for a hot day with a couple of errands, Baby Boy's weekly weigh in appointment and then spending the afternoon with my mum.

Took the chance to wear my pretty new Roie Designs bracelets I wore previously here. However I had to take them off when Baby Boy got a little too messy with his pumpkin for lunch - as I was terrified the tassel would get stained. Might need to wait until he's a little less of a messy eater before I can wear it again!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, blue printed kimono, ASOS grey tank, printed denim shorts, studded Georgina sandals, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wearblue printed kimono worn with green, ASOS grey singlet and red jeans, printed denim shorts with blue and purple, studded Georgina sandals and maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff metallic bag and metallic tank.

SingletJeanswest Jenni basic singlet in Emerald green
Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This was what I wore to celebrate Australia Day. I knew I wanted to wear green and gold, although just like when I celebrated Chinese New Year my accessories weren't completely gold... managed to meet a few style challenge on Instagram too.

This was a nice comfortable outfit for a picnic by the lake. Almost every year since we've lived in our current house, we've had an annual Australia Day BBQ. This year it all seemed like a little too much to organise, especially after Baby Boy's recent stay in hospital. A quiet picnic (with Subway sandwiches!) was a much better idea for this year.

I really liked the yellow accessories with this bright green tank. I've worn the mustard yellow bag with khaki green before, and liked the combination then too. It's good to have other colour combinations to wear with green after being so unsure how to wear it for many years!


Last worn: sun hat, Somedays Lovin' kimono, green tank, denim shorts, Rebecca Minkoff studded gladiator sandals (above), micro Regan bag in harvest gold.

Other ways to wearsun hat and boho outfit, Somedays Lovin' kimono and maxi skirt, green tank and baby bump, denim shorts and print mixing, Rebecca Minkoff studded gladiator sandals and shirt dress, yellow cross body bag and pink dress.

Rebecca Minkoff Regan and Studded Guitar Strap with Printed Shorts & Tanks

In the Rebecca Minkoff sale I bought the Regan satchel in navy and the crystal studded guitar strap. I knew they would look great together, and they really do! Paired the bag and guitar strap combo with some fun tanks and printed shorts. These soft shorts were so helpful in the summer heatwaves.

What I wore:

Jeanswest metallic tank, printed Parker soft shorts Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap and Regan bag | awayfromblue

JORD Cora wood watch and Rebecca Minkoff regan satchel in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)

ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

With the crystal embellished guitar strap and the shimmery yet subtle metallic tank, this felt like a dressier version of the standard shorts and tank outfit combo I'd been wearing all summer. I didn't wear it anywhere special though, just to work from home and do the daycare drop off pick up. I spent some time in the afternoon with my mum as we tried to get to the bottom of the washing machine troubles I've been having and I stuffed my face with cookies she brought over.

A rather uneventful day for such a pretty outfit, but I'm sure I'll wear the tank and printed shorts together again soon, I really liked the combination.


Last worn: metallic tank, Parker printed shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff embellished guitar strap, Rebecca Minkoff Regan.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap
NailsOPI Koala Bear-y

Why I wore it:

How perfect is the statement necklace with the embellished bag strap?! I really loved the combination of accessories. Pulled this outfit together as I wanted to wear these shorts again. I was aiming to hit 30 wears on them by the end of summer, but as I didn't wear them weekly as I needed to in order to hit 30 wears, I didn't quite get there. These still have another 8 wears to go! I was hunting through my wardrobe for something different to wear with them. I like blue and pink together so don't know why I haven't tried this combo before.

The satin tank is another take on the shimmery metallic tank worn in the first outfit. As you can see all I did was change the colours in this outfit, otherwise it's the exact same formula. Outfit formulas are the best when you're a busy mum, you just take what you liked from a previous outfit and change a piece or two to come up with a whole new look. Easy!

Wore this for a quiet day. Ran a few errands in the morning. Before grocery shopping, we went to the opshop looking for hats for the boys. How do their heads grow so quickly?! Managed to find a hat and also picked up a pair of shorts for myself, you might have seen them in my haul video.

Metallic or Satin Tanks Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:

Printed shorts and a plain tank is a staple summer outfit, and a wonderful outfit formula to follow as you can just pick a different tank for a whole new look. A plain colour will always look good with a busy print. You can add some extra interest to your tanks by choosing an interesting fabric, like metallic or satin.

Monochrome Maxi Skirt Outfits: Chambray and Grey with Rebecca Minkoff Accessories

I've been enjoying wearing my Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag lately. As I showed in a previous post, the mustard yellow colour is nice with a neutral outfit as well as other brights. I've worn it with denim shorts but below I'm wearing it with my other favourite option, maxi skirts!

If you're enjoying cooler weather right now, you should check out my guest post on Shea's blog showing different ways to style maxi skirts in fall. I wear my maxi skirts year round, not just in spring and summer.

What I wore:


monochrome maxi skirt chambray marle tee stay at home mum ABA meeting outfit | Away From Blue

chambray maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel cross body bag harvest gold | Away From The Blue
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
Tee: Kmart blue marle tee (new purchase)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

First wearing of my new tee. ($3 at Kmart, they have an awesome selection of basics at the moment!) I thought it would look nice with this maxi skirt. I've worn the skirt with a navy tee before and liked the colour combination but didn't like how the pieces sat together. I much preferred this blue tee with the chambray skirt. I thought the yellow bag was a good piece to break up all of the blue, and the nude Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals were perfect as well.

This is what I wore when I went out to catch up with some other mums and bubs from the Australian Breastfeeding Association. I hadn't been along to the group in a while with everyone being unwell so much over winter, but we were all better and had the morning free to attend for once.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarerchambray maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff studded sandalsRebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the tee as it is a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: chambray maxi skirt in winter, gladiator sandals and shortsRebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and shorts.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Same accessories, same outfit formula! Monochrome maxi skirt with a tee, teething necklace, Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals and micro Regan satchel. When you like an outfit why not try recreate it again? I do it a lot!

This was a quieter day - a little bit of shopping and errands in the morning and then spending time with my mum in the afternoon. Just like the monochrome maxi skirt outfit above, this was easy to wear. This is an old grey tee that's one of my favourites, although I wear it sparingly as I don't want to wear it out too soon! I wore it to 'announce' my pregnancy with baby T in the office couple of years ago.

Even with the colourful outfit and bag though I felt this outfit was missing something - I like grey but this was a little too much. I think a kimono or scarf to add some more colour would have been perfect. I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above.

Maxi Dresses For Christmas Events (And Where To Get One Now For Christmas Day!)

It's no secret that I love maxi skirts and dresses. While I recently bought a lot of shorts for summer, you can't beat a classic maxi dress in December for all the Christmas related events. I almost always wear a maxi dress on Christmas day too, it's such a good choice. Comfortable for opening presents, running around with toddlers and nice and loose so you can indulge in all that yummy food!

The two jersey maxi dresses below are some of my fave wardrobe oldies. There's still plenty of time to order a maxi dress now and have it arrive before Christmas so you can wear it on Christmas day too!

What I wore:

family christmas photo outfit: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' printed empire jersey maxi dress | away from blue

blue maxi dress, silver bracelets, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | away from the blue
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

I wore this a little while ago! We had our family Christmas photo, and as usual I went with the easy maxi dress option. I picked this one specifically as I'd bought the boys little blue poloshirts for the photo, and with hubby in a blue shirt too we were all perfectly themed but not too matchy matchy!

I had a bit of a giggle when we got to the photo area though - it was a blue background! We really coordinated! We usually go to Westfield for our photo, Chermside do pet Santa photos. Unfortunately they had cut their pet santa photos down to just 2 hours over the month and they were of course almost immediately booked out as a result. We ended up booking in with the RSPCA Santa Paws photos for the first time and while it was more expensive, the resulting photo was much better quality. Santa was very understanding too and they took the time to help and suggest things so we managed to get a good photo of us all despite our terrified toddler, who never got anywhere near as close to any other Santas we saw! I recommend them if you're looking for a photo with the whole family, we can't imagine our annual photo without Cooper!


Last worn: blue maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff Georgina studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.

Other ways to wearblue maxi dress for first birthday, Rebecca Minkoff Georgina studded sandals worn 30 ways, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag and gold jeans.

DressJeanswest 'Elodie' tie dye grey jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Christmas bow bracelet (with bells!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Another Christmas event, another maxi dress! It seemed the most obvious choice for a Christmas party with the boys.  I like grey and yellow together, so when I saw one of the style challenges in Instagram for the day was 'bold hue', I knew I'd pick yellow accessories with this dress. I've worn the dress and bag together before, it's a nice combination. The little Christmas bow on my wrist was a fun addition for the party, and met yet another Instagram style challenge for 'tied'.

This was such a fun party for me to attend. Last year, we had been looking forward to it. I was in hospital with Baby Boy but we had been confident that we wouldn't be in there long, just a few days at most, which would mean we would be out for the party. Instead, we stayed there much longer than expected and the party marked day 6 in hospital as I continued to room in with Baby Boy. Toddler T's grandparents took him to the party solo instead. It was just a kid's party, but was quite emotional for me reflecting back on where we were last year. I didn't have time to dwell on it for long though, there was a lot to do and see and then we had to dash to swim lessons, and celebrate putting the Christmas tree up in the afternoon.

It's the perfect mum outfit as it's quick and easy to wear with minimal accessorising required, although you can add bright accessories if you want a bit of a pop. Maxi dresses are comfortable and casual enough for running around with toddlers but dressed up enough for parties and family Christmas photoshoots.

There is still enough time to order a special dress in for Christmas too, with great options under $50 at ASOS, Amazon or The Iconic linked above. I love next day shipping at the Iconic for last minute gifts too.
