30 Ways To Wear: Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Damier Azur (#30Wears)

Thought it was time to feature another handbag for this month's 30 wears post. Every month, I take advantage of having a daily record of my outfits as I look through the blog and find something I've worn 30 times or more, and share it with you as part of the 30 wears challenge. I started it in 2017, and it's a lot of fun!



30 Ways To Wear: Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull


30 ways to wear a Louis Vuitton Damier Azur MM Neverfull Tote Bag | awayfromtheblue blog


I got this neverfull bag all the way back in 2011, so it's 7 years old this year. When I looked through the blog I realised I'd worn it a lot more than 30 times. Given all the times it's been worn on the blog, and having it a year before I started blogging, it's easy to assume it's had over 100 wears. In keeping with the theme though, I've picked just 30 of my favourite outfits to share here.

In terms of cost per wear, this is still high. I did have a vintage speedy bag that was 20 years old and still going, so I expect this 7-year-old-bag to also be around and be used in another 13 years.

That's the thing with investing in bags, you expect to have a lot of years of use to recoup the cost you spent. It was $875 at the time, so around 100 wears is $8.75 a wear. Retail of this bag now from Louis Vuitton is more than double, at $1,810 AUD! That's after 7 years worth of price rises, so I'm not to concerned at my high cost per wear, it could be worse! To be fair, the new bag comes with a little pouch too, so it's not just needless price increases. Still a big difference in price though.

But a good thing to remember - if you're saving up for a designer bag like this, save up and buy the bag as soon as you can, before the price is increased out of your budget! Plus you deserve a splurge now and then 😉

Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Maxi Dresses


Louis Vuitton Neverfull ways to wear with maxi dresses | away from the blue


While I love tiny little cross body bags and clutches like the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with my maxi dresses, a big holdall tote like the neverfull looks great too. It's such effortless style, picking a big tote bag and a classic maxi dress.


Damier Neverfull and Jeans


ways to wear Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull tote with jeans | awayfromblue


It's not just maxi dresses a neverfull looks great with! You can easily pair the bag with casual outfits, and I often wear mine with jeans. Skinny jeans are my go-to choice, but any pair of jeans works well with a tote bag, even those metallic ones in the third picture.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Dresses In The Office


Outfit Ideas Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote and dresses for the office | away from the blue


While a neverfull looks great on weekends with a maxi dress or jeans, it also functions perfectly as a big tote for the office. On days where I have multiple meetings to attend or I'm away from my desk for an extended length of time, I like to take the neverfull bag as it has room for any files or notebooks I need, as well as a bottle of water and a cardigan if necessary.

3 ways to wear Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Pencil Skirts | away from blue


Just like the dresses above, a neverfull works great with pencil skirts to the office too. I have the damier azur neverfull with the blue checkerboard print, so as you can see from these photos I like pairing it with purple! Blue and purple is one of my frequently worn colour combinations.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull At The Beach


4 outfit ideas Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag at the beach | awayfromtheblue


Of course it's not just a workplace you can wear your neverfull! Being such an easy to care for tote it's a good bag to take to the beach, as you can just wipe away the sand. The body is coated canvas so wipes clean easily with a baby-wipe! You can see the versatility of the bag in these four photos too, as it works with the denim shorts or maxi dresses, all good outfits for a day at the beach.


Damier Azur Neverfull In Winter


Wearing the Damier Azur Neverfull Tote In Winter: 3 Outfit Ideas | awayfromtheblue


While the spring-like white and blue damier azur print looks perfect in a beach setting, I don't reserve the bag for exclusive spring or summer wear. It's a nice bag to wear in winter too, to add a little lightness to your outfit. The damier azur neverfull has leather handles and trim so I would keep it dry and wouldn't take it out on a snowy or rainy winter day, but it does look just as good in the cold as in the heat. Definitely a year-round bag.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull And Striped Skirts


3 Outfit ideas with Louis Vuitton Neverfull And Striped Skirts | awayfromtheblue


The monogram and damier print neverfull bags are easier to wear than you think! I don't have any problems pairing the printed bag with an outfit that has a print in it. Of course, stripes are my staple for pattern mixing so they are a good option to start out with if you're unsure about what prints to wear with the damier print bag.


Damier Azur Neverfull and Print Mixing


4 ways to wear Louis Vuitton damier neverfull with printed pieces | away from blue


It's not just stripes you can wear the printed neverfull with! I really do see the classic damier azur print as a neutral, and I'll wear it with bold prints like florals, or even in an outfit I'm already print mixing with as a third print. You can easily wear this with printed dresses, skirts or scarves.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull In Pregnancy


3 ways to wear Louis Vuitton neverfull in pregnancy with baby bump | away from blue


You need to carry quite a lot in pregnancy! Whether it's the bottle of water you constantly sip from, various crackers, ginger tablets or lollies that help you overcome morning sickness, or snacks for the second trimester munchies, you need a big bag! The Louis Vuitton Neverfull is perfect for that, and being a canvas bag it is light enough to wear that it doesn't add to any of the pregnancy aches and pains. This set of photos proves why I invest in accessories too - they consistently work for you, no matter how many pregnancies you have or how big your belly gets. A definite must-have!

Embroidered Tops And Shorts: Sea World Gold Coast Family Vlog

Simple outfits with the same formula, embroidered tops and shorts, but two very different looks.

This is quite a delayed post, sorry! I wanted to wait until I had my Sea World day out vlog to add to the post, so I held off from posting these outfits. Normally it wouldn't be a big deal as I usually post my outfits out of order anyway, but it does seem a little funny in these photos as you can see Cooper all fluffy before he got his big trim. He looks so different now!

What I wore:

sea world australia theme park outfit embroidered blouse denim shorts Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere | away from blue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram themepark style denim shorts embroidered blouse converse LV speedy
BlouseJeanswest Elise longline embroidered shirt in coconut blue

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
Nails: OPI Purple With a Purpose

Why I wore it:

Had such a fun day out when I wore this. We went to Sea World on the Gold Coast for the day (see the vlog below). It had been pretty cloudy in Brisbane so I wasn't sure about the weather on the coast. I picked my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag in case it rained, along with closed in shoes and a long sleeve blouse. I even brought a jacket and jeans for the boys. Of course it turned into a gloriously sunny day and I wished I'd worn a shorter sleeved top!

BagBalenciaga regular Pompon bag in Murier

Why I wore it:

A monochrome blue outfit for a busy day. I thought the embroidery on the tunic would tie in nicely with the white print on the shorts. I liked the two pieces together but felt that the tunic sat a little weirdly, there was a lot of extra fabric to tuck in. The plan was to go to ABA mum's group in the morning, drop off Cooper at the groomers, go home for lunch and a nap for the boys, then pick him up in the afternoon. A busy day, but manageable.

Of course nothing went according to plan! We were late to leave the house, which made us late for running errands before ABA, which made us late for ABA...and the lateness continued. When we eventually got home in the afternoon I realised that the groomer may have downplayed the injury Cooper got, as he was leaving a trail of blood around the house...

After freaking out, I found a local vet who could see us immediately (last thing on a friday afternoon!), he got his wounds treated and we were free to go home. Just a little late for starting dinner. Cooper is okay now, but it was one of those bad to worse days and I was so happy when it ended!


Last worn: embroidered tunic, printed soft shorts, Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals, Balenciaga pompon bag.

More Embroidered Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:


Embroidered tops are so fun to wear and they add a little interest to a plain top. The benefit of  embroidered tops and tunics is that the embellishment built into the top means no accessorising is needed! You don't need to worry about finding a matching necklace. If it's a hot day, add some shorts (or jeans in cooler weather) and you're set.

Knotted Maxi Dresses With Denim Jacket and Louis Vuitton Bag: Paddle Boarding On The Gold Coast

I have more maxi dresses in my wardrobe than any other type of dress, they are definitely my favourite! I wore maxi dresses below for two very different days, but the dresses worked perfectly both times. Maxi dresses just work everywhere!

What I wore:

denim jacket, rose gold beaded bracelet stack with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayFromTheBlue

Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
DressJeanswest 'Elodie' tie dye grey jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Lovisa rose gold beaded bracelet stack
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

It was such a fun day out when I wore this. We had some family visiting who hadn't met the boys yet so it was incredible meeting up with them and introducing them! The extended family headed down to the Gold Coast, and went paddle boarding at Palm Beach. A rain shower arrived at the beach shortly after we did but it turned into such a sunny day, the boys had an amazing time meeting family and playing in the sand.

The neverfull bag is one I frequently take to the beach, although with the rain I did wish I'd picked a different bag. It was handy to have though, held everything I needed and had space to put my accessories in while I enjoyed the water and sand.

The knot in the maxi dress was perfect to stop the hem getting wet and dragging as I wore it on the sand. It's not the first time I've knotted this maxi dress. I like how it makes it look a little different when it's knotted.

When the skies started looking dark again, we packed up and headed out to have a BBQ at my cousin's place. As you can see in the video below, we left at just the right time! I quickly pulled my accessories out and put my jacket back on and felt suitably attired for a family BBQ on the back veranda in the rain.

Paddle Boarding On The Gold Coast - Family Vlog







What I wore:



Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace
DressJayJays feather print maxi dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Not as casual a day out this time! I loved knotting the maxi dress above so much that I decided to do it again with this feather print maxi dress, which is on the longer side but I've still never had taken up.

Again with the denim jacket, although it stayed on much longer on this day as hubby and I had an appointment in the morning and most of the day was spent in the freezing aircon. No rain, even though I had my waterproof Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag instead of the neverfull tote I'd worn above. I kinda wish I'd taken the speedy to the beach and the neverfull to our appointment! I was glad of the denim jacket though, it was freezing in the aicon, and I needed it, even if I did take it off when we got outside.

Just like the first outfit, this denim jacket and dress combo has been worn together before, but I think if something works, why change it? I'm happy to keep rewearing combinations I like.


Last worn: bubblegum denim jacket (above), feather print maxi dress, studded sandals, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Perfect for pregnancybubblegum denim jacket in second trimester, feather print maxi dress in second trimester, studded sandals in third trimester, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag in third trimester.



Maxi Dresses Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:

A denim jacket is a great layer to add to a maxi dress for autumn - or even spring! As well as coming in helpful to keep you cosy on a rainy day sitting out on the veranda, it works to take the chill off the aircon when you're sat inside for too long! Knotted dresses are a quick petite style hack that makes any dress a perfect length. Even if your maxi dress is the ideal length for you already, adding a knot to it changes up the look of the dress a little and makes it feel new - even if the rest of the outfit is all pieces you've worn together before.

Basic Tanks To Take You From Work To Weekend With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

If you're trying to build a wardrobe that takes you from SAHM duties to a business casual workplace like I am, you need some basics. When I bought these two tanks I knew they would be pieces I'd be able to get a lot of wear from. They are really basic, a little gathering on the back but otherwise just plain and colourful tanks. Simple tops like this are good to wear to the office as well as the other days I'm a SAHM with the boys.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in black!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

An simple, staple office outfit. Closed in shoes, a bag big enough to carry everything needed for a day at work, blazer and a simple basic tank. Even if the heatwave in Brisbane meant that the blazer was quickly taken off after these pictures and only worn in the office air conditioning! It has been such a hot end to summer.

While I love my printed dresses for work, a variation of this outfit is often worn as I love my pencil skirts. A pencil skirt and blazer can have a casual tank underneath if you're in a business casual workplace like I am, or a dressier blouse or button up shirt for more formal environments.

With a basic top and classic plain blazer, you can add more interest to your office outfit with a fun statement necklace or printed pencil skirt. I love the textured lace on this one.

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Another super-hot day, at the height of the heatwave. We were spending the morning in aircon so I added the kimono to keep me cosy, and also because I'd been wanting to try the navy floral with the mustard tank. I really like this outfit and felt great in this. I'll probably try this kimono and tank together again soon, I loved the colour combo.

I ended up taking the kimono off in the afternoon though as we ran around on a couple of errands. Even the brief moments between the air conditioned car and building made it too warm for any kind of layer!

Carried my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag again, I needed something fairly indestructible, and this is perfect as it's waterproof and easy to clean.

Since I was spending the day with the boys, I swaped the pretty but not kid friendly statement necklace I wore to the office with this much more kid friendly silicone teething necklace. Easily washable too, just like the Louis Vuitton handbag.


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, mustard tank, bermuda denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy Bandouliere (above).

Basic Tanks for Work and Weekend Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:


Basics are the best building blocks to have in your wardrobe, especially if you want pieces you can get more wear from. These tanks, while different colours, are the same simple cut and are so easy to dress up or down. With a few tweaks like swapping the fun kimono for a more formal blazer, and the casual denim shorts for a pencil skirt, it's easy to make a casual outfit perfect for the office. If you're on a budget, investing in a few pieces like this makes it easier to get more value from your purchases as you can wear them for different events. You don't have to spend big, both of these tanks were under $20!

Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Grey Tees and Printed Maxi Skirts: SAHM Style

This summer has definitely been the summer of shorts, but I haven't completely forgotten my maxi skirts! The classic combo of a printed maxi skirt and grey tee makes an easy, comfortable outfit that's perfect for running around with the kids.

What I wore:

hospital style grey v neck tee navy stripe maxi skirt LV neverfull damier azur | awayfromblue

navy stripe maxi skirt and Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull MM tote bag | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceNibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I was surprised to find I hadn't worn this tee and navy striped maxi skirt together before! I thought it was what I wore last time we went to hospital, but it was a different tee I wore then. This very similar outfit was worn again to the same hospital, but a day stay this time. I shared some pics on Twitter and my Instagram stories, as one of the boys had his first surgery.

There are a few times in adulthood I have a little panic to myself that "I'm not grown up enough for this", and having to comfort my child through an operation was one of those times. Thankfully, it was just a short day stay. The operation went well, and apart from being a little woozy afterwards, it was a smooth recovery.

I wasn't sure if I needed closed in shoes for the operating room, I forgot to ask with all the other questions I had, so I went with Converse just in case, even if I did take them off as soon as we got home. I picked comfortable clothes for all the sitting around waiting I was going to have to do, and my big Louis Vuitton neverfull to carry snacks and things to amuse me as I waited, with everything else in the baby bag. I've tried the neverfull as a baby bag before, as you can see in the video below, but I'm not a fan so it meant carrying two bags with me. Easy when I had the stroller to throw everything on.

It was a difficult day, made just a little easier by having a fuss-free outfit I was ready to face anything in. I'm just hoping to have no further days of hospital style!


Last worn: grey v-neck tee, navy stripe maxi skirt, Converse Chucks, Louis Vuitton neverfull tote.

TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves (also in black)
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Onto happier days! I wore this the weekend before operation day. We'd planned a day out but after taking these photos and our morning walk, the rain showers started to we decided to stay home instead, after running a quick errand. In the end I think a quiet day was just what was needed as operation week was crazy.

Very similar outfit formula to the one above, with a more voluminous printed maxi skirt and a slouchier grey tee. This was a lovely outfit for a humid day, nice loose layers. The only thing I didn't like so much was that the hem of my skirt got wet quickly when the rain started. I really need to get this skirt properly tailored. I'm currently doing the well-known petite girl hack of wearing it higher on my waist and rolling the waistband to keep it in place. It's definitely proven it's a keeper in my wardrobe, so I need to get it tailored to be just the right length.

Again I was wearing my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote, although this time around it had a lot less stuffed into it. That's the beauty of the neverfull, it always looks good no matter if you carry a little or a lot.

Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:


With a printed maxi skirt (or any printed piece in your wardrobe) pairing it with a grey tee is an easy outfit formula to follow that's guaranteed to look good. If grey tees aren't your thing, you could substitute with a similar neutral like black or white. I'm just such a fan of grey v-neck tees, they are what I reach for most often when wearing prints.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Blue Printed Dresses For The Office With Blazers

My go-to outfit for the office is a printed dress. You instantly look and feel more pulled together, and it's such a quick outfit. I try to plan my outfits out the night before, so when I've had a tough day or I'm too tired to want to stand in front of my wardrobe, I just grab a dress to wear the next day.

What I wore:

DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in black!)
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I actually wore this a couple months ago, but just never got around to posting. I work from home one day a week, and the other two days I'm in the office. This means I can easily group together the two office outfits for a blog post, makes blogging simple.

When I wore this dress, it had been an absolutely crazy week, with the boys and I unwell, so I only made it into the office once. Because of that, this solitary office outfit had sat around for a while until another week where I only went into the office once so I'd have something to post with it.

I picked this dress to wear as I love the colour and print, and blue is always a mood booster for me when having a crazy week. I really like the simplicity of this dress for the office. Blue and green is a colour combination I've been warming to lately, and this necklace looks great with a blue dress.


Last worn: cream jersey blazer, blue Aztec print dress, gold mouse flats, Louis Vuitton neverfull tote.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Another crazy week calling for another simple dress outfit. This blue one is one of the oldies in my wardrobe, bought near the start of my career with my current company. I've been there a long time! I love how it continues to look just as good as it did when I first bought it, and wonderful addition to my wardrobe. It would be nice to have taken more photos of it before the blog, as I'm sure it's over 30 wears. It's only the 6 years I've been blogging that I've been taking regular daily outfit pics though, so I don't have any photos of this before the blog.

Just like the dress above, a blue printed dress boosts my mood, and that was what was needed for this busy day. While I kept the bag the same, I went with silver flats instead of gold, and a different blazer. I may even like this outfit a little more than the first one.

Blue Printed Dresses For the Office Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:


For an instant confidence boots at work, make sure you have a cute printed dress in your favourite colour. Mine is blue of course. You can pull it on when you're feeling rushed or stressed, and feel more confident knowing you look great! If it's chilly in the office air con, it's easy to add a blazer to a short sleeved dress.
