Soft Knits And Maxi Skirts In Winter With Cross Body Bags

I love layering up my maxi skirts a little more for winter! A cosy comfy knit it a great pairing with a maxi skirt, for maximum comfort and extra warmth on a winter day.

What I wore:

Knit: SES fashions mustard marle knit jumper
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold and windy day when I wore this - as you can see from my outfit being blown around a bit! It was so hard to get a pic without my scarf or hair over my face! I wasn't wearing leggings under this maxi skirt but I kind of wished I had - one of Brisbane's really cold winter mornings - the temps were down in single digits!

Our plan for the day was to go to the playground but the wind and the freezing temperatures made that a very unattractive option! Instead we just headed out on a couple of errands inside the nearest shopping centre to stay warm and get outside the house for a bit.

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the day above, this was a much warmer day! No need for the extra leather jacket or scarf, and I wasn't wishing I'd worn leggings under my maxi skirt. Although I was wearing taller boots under it so my legs were pretty cosy!

Just a quiet Sunday, with church in the morning and then Church Online in the afternoon. I really like blue and red together, and I've worn this red skirt with other blue tops in the past.

It's the first time I've tried the red bag and maxi skirt together though, it was a nice bit of matchy-matchy. Since the red micro Avery bag has gold hardware, I wore my navy and gold beaded necklace and navy and gold tassel earrings. I really liked this outfit, so nice and colourful and very comfortable!

How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt can be worn in cooler weather and isn't just a summer piece! I've been enjoying wearing my maxi skirts over winter. Adding a nice soft cosy knit is a great way to winterise a maxi skirt, adding a few more layers like a scarf and leather jacket for really cold days!

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt

A  new month, a new 30 ways to wear post! It's been a while since I featured a maxi skirt, and I am actually surprised that it's taken me so long to hit 30 wears with this chambray one!

Each month I go through my archives in the blog to find things I've worn 30 times or more to meet the 30 wear challenge, and compile all the times I've worn something into a helpful guide like this showing you how I've remixed things.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt


30 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt AwayFromTheBlue blog pinable image


The first 30 wears post I ever did was with a maxi skirt, but the last time I featured one was almost a year and a half ago, definitely overdue a ways to wear post with a maxi skirt for this series! This chambray maxi skirt is a stunner too! A sale purchase over 3 years ago, it's something I found through another blogger and fell in love with. I had to wait until it went on sale to get this, as I had to budget in the fact that I'd need to have it taken up, being petite. It's from the Noisy May range for tall people so there was quite a lot to cut off! 😂


Cost Per Wear

Cost per wear is a little tricky to calculate as I can't remember how much the alterations were! The skirt alone was just $24.49 and I've worn it 31 times since then, so it's under the $1 per wear that seems to be the goal most people aim for. If you add alterations as well though I would still have more wears to get that $1 a wear figure, but I know this skirt will be worn a lot more in future.

As someone who loves denim and maxi skirts, a chambray maxi skirt was an obvious choice and I really enjoy wearing this!


30 Ways To Wear Chambray Maxi Skirt: Video Style





Chambray Skirt With a Bright Top


4 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt with bright tops | away from the blue

The beautiful blue chambray skirt is a perfect pairing with bold block-colour tops! I love a good bright coral or pink tee or tank, or a longer sleeved teal henley for cooler weather. This is such a fun skirt to wear other colours with as blue goes with most of my wardrobe!



Chambray Maxi Skirt With Yellow


3 outfit ideas with yellow and chambray maxi skirt | away from blue


Calling out this colour option for you separately from the brights section above, as I love wearing this chambray skirt with yellow! Blue and yellow is a favourite and cheerful colour combination I love to wear, and enjoy pairing different amounts of yellow with this blue skirt - a little bit like a yellow bag, or a larger amount of yellow like a mustard cardigan or tee.


Maxi Skirt In Monochrome Outfit

The colour combinations above are fun to try, but you can also go the easy route and wear a monochromatic outfit with a maxi skirt. this blue chambray skirt is a great pairing for a blue tank, tee or blouse, and as you can see I'm wearing it with 3 different shades of blue here. You don't have to match the shades of the skirt and top exactly to create a monochromatic outfit!


Maxi Skirt And Graphic Tee


how to wear graphic tees and chambray maxi skirt | awayfromblue

A graphic tee looks great with denim - and not just denim shorts and jeans! You can mix it up a little and pair a graphic tee with a chambray maxi skirt for a different look. This is such a nice combination for a hot day, and creates a slightly different outfit from the ones above where I've worn the skirt with bolder block-colour tees.


Chambray Skirt and Stripes


striped top and chambray maxi skirt 4 outfit ideas | away from the blue

Just like the graphic tee set of outfits above, stripes and denim is another classic go-to outfit for me. there's something so simple about denim and stripes! I like pairing striped tees and tanks with this skirt. As it's a plain block-colour skirt, you don't have to worry about print-clashing when you pick a striped top to wear with it.


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Layers


layering ideas with a chambray denim maxi skirt outfit different seasons | awayfromtheblue

Chambray isn't just a summer fabric for me, I like to get wear out of this maxi skirt year round. that means adding layers when it gets a little cooler. It could be as simple as adding a kimono over your maxi skirt, or extra layers on a winter day like a cardigan and scarf. A leather jacket works well with a maxi skirt in winter too, particularly paired with ankle boots to keep you cosy!


Maxi Skirt and Knit


3 ways to wear maxi skirt and knitted jumper pullover outfits | away from the blue

Another winter outfit idea is to wear a cosy knitted jumper with a maxi skirt! It's such a simple outfit to wear and so incredibly comfortable. I love being warm and cosy in winter so I've worn a jumper with this maxi skirt a few times. You may need to add some extra layers like scarves, ankle boots and leather jackets if it's very cold, or even a pair of leggings under your skirt!


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Summer Tanks


4 summer tank outfit ideas with chambray maxi skirt | away from blue

Saving the simplest outfit for last - for a hot summer day, just pick this light chambray maxi skirt and add a plain or colourful tank. Simple fuss-free summer dressing for the heat! The lighter fabric of this maxi skirt means it billows around nicely as you walk, creating a cool breeze on the hot days. A great summer outfit choice!

Printed Maxi Skirts and Denim Jackets With Amerii Rattan Sling Bag

Enjoying some warmer than usual winter days with my maxi skirts and denim jackets, and my new Amerii straw bag.

Amerii contacted me through YouTube a while ago and asked if I wanted to try one of their bags in exchange for a review - I was thrilled and had fun picking out this piece to try.

What I wore:

denim jacket, plain black tee, red boho printed maxi skirt, straw circle bag winter SAHM style | awayfromblue

Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black | away from blue

NecklaceRoie Designs long freshwater pearl necklace with tassel
TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy day! Church and then a little shopping at Kmart for things for our pantry reorganisation. Now we are all moved into our new house, we are just trying to set up everything how we like it, it's slow but fun progress! As it was slightly warmer when I wore this back in June, I just needed a denim jacket and no scarf.

With the black rattan bag, I thought a black tee and black ankle boots matched nicely and worked well with the colourful blue denim jacket and red printed maxi skirt. This skirt is a summer favourite, but it layers up well for a warmer winter day like this.


Last worn: denim moto jacket, pearl tassel necklace, black scoop neck tee, red printed maxi skirt, black ankle boots. First time I've worn the bag as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Why I wore it:

When we had that brief period of summer like weather back in the middle of June, despite it being winter, I took full advantage and the boys and I headed to our favourite playground to enjoy the sunshine. I also got the chance to wear this side-split maxi skirt, which usually I wouldn't be pulling out on a winter day!

The denim jacket wasn't really necessary, I ended up taking it off as we sat in the sunshine - it was 27° Celsius, so about 82 Fahrenheit. So unexpected for winter!

The mustard yellow tee seemed like a colourful choice for the warmer day, and was a fun pop with the white stripes. Again I stuck with the black ankle boots to match the black round rattan bag. I really liked this outfit.

Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:
Maxi skirts are a summer staple and great for mum life, especially if they are loose and flowy or have a side split to take advantage of a summer breeze. It's easy to layer them up for cooler weather too, with ankle boots and denim jackets. You definitely need more heavy duty layers if you're attempting to wear them on a cold winter day though! 😂

Matching Shoes and Bags: Atmos&Here Lola Ankle Boots With Skinny Jeans, Tees and Printed Scarves

Should you match your shoes to your bag? This is an old fashion 'rule' that seems to be rarely followed nowadays! I mostly have neutral shoes and bright bags, but when I do stumble across a matching pair of shoes and bag, it's fun to wear them together like I have below, with my tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

These Atmos&Here Lola tan ankle boots are new ones I purchased recently to replace my old ones that literally fell to pieces when I pulled them out of storage this autumn.

What I wore:

grey maxi cardigan with red skinny jeans black tee tan scarf ankle boots and bag RM MAB camera SAHM style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | matching shoes to bag tan ankle boots mab camera bag red skinny jeans scarf and black tee

ScarfASOS crinkle oversized leopard print scarf
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoes: Atmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots (new purchase)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist making all my accessories match in this outfit! With the bright red skinny jeans I thought the matching neutral tan ankle boots and MAB camera bag would be a good combination. The scarf was needed to keep me warm on a cooler Sunday morning as we went to church, and I think the leopard print, while not an exact match, compliments the bag and ankle boots nicely!

I kept everything else in my outfit neutral to let the red jeans shine - while I've never worn this particular black tee with the grey cardigan before, grey and black are colours I like wearing with these red skinny jeans.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, leopard print scarf, black tee, red skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've shared the boots on the blog as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: grey maxi cardigan and maxi dress, leopard print scarf and ombre knit, black tee and pink shorts, red skinny jeans and matching scarf, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and striped skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: red jeans in second trimester.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another very similar outfit combination to the one above! Again I stuck with a cosy cardigan, printed scarf, black tee and bright skinny jeans, accessorised with my matching tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

With the bright green skinny jeans being such a burst of colour in my outfit I went with a plain black tee, similar to the outfit above. I added in another colour with the navy waterfall cardigan and geometric print scarf though. Such an easy outfit formula!

I really like the way the matching tan bag and shoes worked with the green and blue in the outfit, they are a nice neutral combination and this made for a simple outfit for a day with the boys, running errands and visiting the library and the playground.

How You Can Wear It:

If you have a pair of shoes that match a handbag, why not wear them together? You can add extra accessories like a scarf to your outfit to tie in the matchy-matchy even more, or use the matching shoes and bag to 'bookend' a colourful outfit like I have in the second outfit.

Two Ways To Wear Grey Kmart Leopard Print Tee In Winter

I saw this leopard print tee in Kmart and was tempted to buy it, at just $9. I decided I didn't need another grey tee though and put it back. When I stumbled across it again at just $2, I knew I had to get it! It's so soft and the leopard print is nice and subtle, it's so easy to wear! I've worn it two different ways below.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Such a simple mum outfit: jeans, a tee, and Converse. Easily made suitable for winter with a cosy cardigan on top. To make this outfit a little more interesting, I went with bright green skinny jeans. While not as cheap as the leopard print tee, they were an opshop find and so also affordable, at just $5.

The green jeans and navy cardigan are a colour combination I often wear together, and I thought they complimented the neutral grey tee nicely. An easy outfit for a day at the playground and the library with the boys.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, circle pendant necklace, green skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag. First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

A busy day meant another easy outfit for mum life - this maxi skirt is a firm favourite, and the grey leopard print tee with it created a rather monochromatic outfit, especially with the leather jacket. I needed the jacket in the cooler morning but with a day of rushing around to appointments, it came off before lunchtime.

This outfit wasn't as colourful as the first one, so I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff mirco Regan bag. Such a fun pop of colour!

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee is a wardrobe staple, especially when paired with a pair of jeans. To mix things up a little you can try colourful denim instead, or swap your skinny jeans for a maxi skirt, which still provides the coverage you need when running around after two toddlers!

Layering Maxi Dresses For Winter With Tees, Leather Jackets and Ankle Boots

I like to wear my dresses year-round, and an easy way to change up the look of a dress is by adding a tee on top. In winter it's an extra layer of warmth too! I'm wearing a frequent favourite maxi dress and a sparingly worn one for two different tee over maxi dresses looks.

Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for my eldest boy's birthday party! Crazy to think he's 5 years old now! We celebrated at an indoor play area with his kindy friends - nice and easy party as I didn't have to entertain a room of kindergarteners or clean up after them 😂

For something a little different, with all the animal print skirts that are around at the moment, I decided to give this pretty maxi dress a wear. It's definitely much too glam for a kids birthday party (I've worn it before to a wedding) but dressed down with ankle boots and a plain tee I thought it worked nicely as a skirt. I really liked this outfit, even if the dress as a skirt did slide down a bit - I think a belt is needed to keep it in place next time, I just wore it with the halter neck around my waist so it didn't show under the tee.

It felt a bit monochromatic for a birthday party, so I added a little extra colour with the blush tassel necklace and purple mini MAB tote bag.

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

This dress is one I can't wear in the middle of winter, the little crochet gaps between the tiers make it a bit too chilly on a cold day, but for a cold morning and warmer day it was perfect. I wore this out to church and actually ended up taking the leather jacket off in the afternoon as it was too warm.

I like wearing this tee over maxi dresses, so although it's the first time I've worn this tee and dress together it's not the first time I've layered this tee over a dress. It's supposed to be a cropped style, but being petite it hits as the perfect point for me so it makes it easy to wear over a long dress!

The little Rebecca Minkoff love bag I wanted to get out for another wear. Usually just a special occasion / night out bag, I thought it would look good with the coral print on this maxi dress, even if it's more peach than pink. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my new smaller wallet fits in this bag so expect to see it worn more often now I don't have to worry about taking things out of my wallet to swap into the bag when I use it.

Maxi Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

In summer a maxi dress is a nice easy all-in-one outfit option. You can layer a maxi dress up for cooler weather too, adding a tee on top for more warmth as well as a leather jacket and ankle boots. A few more layers than you need in summer, but still quite an easy outfit to pull together.

Tee Dresses Layered For Winter: Anniversary Weekend

Still playing catch-up with blog posts, as I wore these outfits a few weeks ago! We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at the end of May. It was a big one for us, with our house build completed, moving into the new house, and a trip overseas to Europe and back to Scotland, where we first went together after our engagement. This time with the kids in tow! With all of these big things I was expecting a quiet weekend for our anniversary, even though hubby had told me to keep the weekend free.

He surprised me with a kid-free weekend away on the Gold Coast, in the same hotel we celebrated out first wedding anniversary in! It was a wonderful surprise!

What I wore:

denim jacket tee dress for winter ankle boots heart print scarf print mixing vintage chanel bag | awayfromblue

Chanel vintage quilted diana lambskin flap bag | awayfromtheblue

JacketJeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressCotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

When hubby let me know what the surprise was I knew instantly I was going to wear some of my dresses that hadn't been worn in a while! I worry this one is a little too short for days with the boys, but for a weekend away it was perfect! As we were driving down I noticed a sign advertising Seafire - a big fireworks event on the beach. This wasn't the perfect outfit for that - although my big blanket scarf did come in helpful to shelter us from a rain shower and keep us warm as we sat on the beach - but it was fun to attend the show anyway. I've never seen fireworks on the beach before, really enjoyed it!

The vintage Chanel bag was another must-have due to being kid-free! It's lambskin so a bit too delicate for me to wear it around the boys very often! It fit just the essentials and my camera inside which was nice.

Why I wore it:

Our second day on the coast, another tee dress! This one was a spring / summer favourite when I bought it when my oldest was a baby, but when he got mobile it got less and less wear. I usually wear it as a top with a skirt over it to make the length a little more practical for running around with the kids. But being kid-free, it was easy to wear with tights and ankle boots. Winter on the Gold Coast is still a little chilly!

This mustard scarf is a great combination with the botanical print on the dress, it compliments the yellow nicely. Again, a simple outfit that I enjoyed wearing!

How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee dress is so simple to wear on it's own in spring or summer. You don't have to pack them away for winter though! Layer them up with tights, ankle boots, denim jackets and a cosy scarf to keep you warm.
