Blue Denim, Alexander McQueen Skull Scarves. Cobalt Knit | Star Print

I'm blogging less often as life revolves around baby T. I'm sharing outfits when everything aligns and I'm dressed and had time for a photo.


 Here's what I wore to get dressed quickly for having a visitor over:
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
KnitAsos textured knit jumper in cobalt blue
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' super skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual


This is my "I had planned to stay at home in my pyjamas all day, I haven't cleaned the house, we have unexpected guests coming over for dinner with just an hours notice" outfit. A bit of a mouthful! It was put together in even more of a rush than usual, and has all my favourite outfit requirements. It's comfortable due to the denim, and warm and cosy because of the chunky knit. It's made up of my favourite colour (blue), with a scarf thrown on to add some colour (blue and pink is such a nice combination) and to try look a little more-put together. Just like last time, or the time before! Outfit formulas have been really helpful lately.

I was quite pleased I managed to get myself, baby T and the house ready for guests on such short notice, and even happier that we would be having take-away for dinner. I did forget to do my hair and fix up my very messy ponytail, but considering everything else was neat and tidy, counting it as a win! :) Even had time to take a quick outfit photo as I spoke with my sister on speaker phone (hence the giggle in the pic) before tidying the tripod away.


Last worn: pink skull scarf, cobalt knit, skinny jeans, Converse.



Here's what I wore to go out for dinner:
ScarfAlexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
Shirt: thrifted Zara star print shirt
Jeans: Sass and Bide "Straight up" jeans
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


Not wearing Converse for a change, although I am still wearing a skull scarf, hehe! Thought that the scarf added a nice bit of colour to the outfit. I thrifted this shirt a few months back while on maternity leave, and this is the first time I've worn it.

I have a habit of keeping clothes for special occasions, which used to result in a wardrobe full of items still with tags on that had been there for months. Although I am a little better, I still find myself "saving" clothes now and then for the perfect first wear. This shirt I thought was a bit too dressy for day to day wear, so I'd always pass it by in favour of something else. Eventually decided I should actually wear it instead of just looking at it, and wore this out to have dinner with the in-laws and catch up with my visiting sister-in-law. It happened to match baby T's wrap too until, like the wrap before it, it needed an early trip to the wash basket! Life with baby is very messy sometimes ;)


Last worn: Roses skull scarf, Sass and Bide skinny jeans, Asos leather boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs Baby bag. First time I've worn the shirt.

Style It Project: Black Tee | Teal and Olive Green, Jeans and Converse

Here's what I wore to take baby T to the clinic for a check-up:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Scarf: Sportsgirl animal scarf in Violet
Top: Glassons plain black long sleeve tee
SkirtTarget grey marle maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


There are some weeks I'm really grateful I can pop out to the local clinic for a chat with a nurse and a quick checkup for baby T. It helps to make sure he's on track, gives me a chance to ask silly 'first time mum' questions, and it gets me out of the house.

It's not always easy to find something to wear though, as I've been feeling really uninspired lately. I smiled when I saw Kimbalike's and Redcliffe Style's Style It Project challenge for July - a plain long sleeve black tee. Something I already had in my wardrobe, as the past few challenges I haven't participated as I would have had to buy something. Although I didn't wear my tee in a ground breaking new way, just paired it with my go-to maxi skirt and a nice printed scarf, it was fun to use the challenge as inspiration for picking what to wear :)


Last worn: Ray-Ban, animal print scarf, black tee, maxi skirt, Converse, MbMJ baby bag.



Here's what I wore to have a visitor over and go out with baby and Cooper:
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs scarf in Island pine-print
TopJeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal
JeansSass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


Just a simple casual denim outfit for going out with baby T and Cooper, and for having a visitor over in the afternoon. I always try to put a bit of effort in when we have visitors, even though all the attention is rightfully on baby T.

Pleased to find another pair of non-maternity jeans that I can squeeze into! Felt like wearing jeans as it was a cold and rainy day. Decided to wear this top and the scarf together as they are both the only green items I own. The scarf is more olive green and the shirt is a teal, but I thought it seemed like a good pairing in the morning. Undecided after seeing the photos though, didn't turn out as well as I thought. What do you think?


Last worn: MbMJ scarf, teal henley, Sass and Bide jeans, Converse (see above), baby bag (see above).

My sister came over for lunch on Saturday as she just got back from her holiday and wanted to catch up. I got to see all the photos and hear all the stories, and I'm very jealous! She had an incredible time. She brought me back a beautiful sarong from her trip too.

We had to go out in the morning and actually buy some groceries so we had enough food in the house to make a decent lunch, so I dressed as simply as possible to try and beat the heat. A little bit of print mixing with the striped skirt and geometric tank too.


Last worn: Sass and Bide tank, striped maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to go shopping and have lunch with my parents today:
black and white print maxi dress for second trimester baby bump

miu miu cammeo studded bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: gifted gold heart shaped necklace
DressPearl black and white jersey maxi dress
Shoes: Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus pink and gold bracelet stack
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


Just wore a simple maxi dress as it was so hot today. I've mentioned before that we are turning the spare room (currently being used as my wardrobe room) into baby's nursery. I'm trying to reduce what I own, as well as finding better ways to store what I'm keeping. My wall of handbags is going to be retired and everything moved from display into storage boxes.

Went to Ikea today to get a few more boxes and some other organisational things. As my parents live nearby, we decided to have lunch with them there too. Lunch was delicious, but we ended up spending almost 4 hours shopping there, oops! Got everything I needed though to help with the next stage of the wardrobe organisation/clear out project, and a few little extras.


Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarers, printed maxi dress, Wittner studded sandals, Miu Miu studded bag.

First day of summer :) Nice casual outfit for Sunday. We spent some time this morning setting up our Christmas decorations and the Christmas tree, as well as going out for lunch and running some errands. Had Church Online in the evening too. Sadly, the cold weather was sticking around from yesterday, so ended up wearing jeans again. Was hoping for much more summery weather for December, but at least the sun came out.

Casual Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags and Jeans

Here's what I wore on Sunday:

Top: Just Jeans sequin front black tank
Jeans: Sass and Bide "Straight up" jeans

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Had a family lunch to celebrate my brother in law's birthday on Sunday, as well as having a few errands to run.

It's been almost a year and a half since I last wore this tank. I like it as the sequin detail is cute and it's a little prettier than a standard tank, but I'm not really happy with the fit or comfort (it has a big zip up the back). Definitely another item that needs to be in the donate pile.

It's good that working my way through wearing different pieces in my wardrobe is helping me to reduce what I own and at the same time expand on what I usually wear. For all the clothes I own, I rotate through very few of them. Having the ability to search my blog for the last time I wore something really shows me how often I wear things and is helping me to see I'm holding onto things I don't use.


Last worn: Asos fluro boucle blazer, sequin tank, Sass and Bide skinnies, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC.

Worked from home today, so a casual and comfortable jeans and tee outfit. Had no idea I'd worn this exact outfit before just with different shoes until I searched for the last time I'd worn the top. It's good I'm wearing things I haven't worn in a while, just a shame I'm not wearing them in new ways ;)

Very casual outfit for a Monday, as I was working from home today. I'll probably be working from home a little more frequently in future, which is nice as it gives me a reason to wear the huge number of casual clothes in my wardrobe, and I get to spend more time with Cooper. He usually naps nearby when I'm on the computer :) Only left the house to take him a walk today, so this little cross body bag is all I needed to carry the essentials.

Nice simple outfit for a Saturday. It was a little cooler in the morning, so I wore this new Gucci scarf I picked up at the Reebonz Brisbane sale on Friday. It's so soft! Bought a Christmas present for my sister, and decided to treat myself to this scarf too :)

This is such a comfy tee, was great for a relaxing Sunday. Did think I should have a break from the jeans and tee outfits of the past few days, but the weather was a little odd in the morning so gave up on my idea of wearing a dress. Did a closet count though, and I actually own 50 dresses!!! WAY too many. Scared to count the rest of the items in my wardrobe, but have to do something to trim it all down.


Last worn: burgundy oversized tee, apricot skinny jeans, gold Asos sandals, Chloe Paddington bag.

Start of a long weekend here, so DH and I are off for a bit of a roadtrip! A comfortable maxi dress seemed like the best thing to wear.

I'll update instagram when I can of course, @awayfromblue. Have a wonderful weekend!

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent leather logo plaque flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Kate Spade skinny mini bow bracelet (new purchase)
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather


Big bag today to carry some notebooks back to work, and also as I had a meeting on the other side of the city I had to take stuff along too. It was a nice sunny day, so a simple printed dress. Haven't worn this dress as much as I expected too after I bought it, so today was it's last wear. It's feels a little more casual than some of my other work dresses, so I usually pass by it in my wardrobe in favour of another. After reading Blue Paper Laterns Closet Inventory post, I've been thinking about how many clothes I own and how rarely I wear most of them. I need to be more ruthless with removing things that aren't perfect. Maybe once I've had a few more wardrobe clearouts I'll be brave enough to try and count what I have!


Last worn: French Connection print dress, patent MbMJ flats, Mulberry Bayswater bag.

Cooper looks rather sad for some reason! He didn't want to come closer to the camera though, strange little man.
Quite happy to be wearing these sunglasses again :) I'd misplaced them for a while and was beginning to think I had lost them, until I found them in one of my bags. Swapping to new bags every day, sometimes things like sunglasses get left behind. I've left my wallet in a bag once too, and after having to borrow money from a colleague for lunch I now always check for my wallet and phone before I leave the house!

Had been looking at this tee on Asos for a while before I bought it. I have plenty of grey tees, but I'm always looking for the perfect one, so eventually added this one to my cart. It's nice and comfortable and slouchy.
Jeans again, as I've been battling a cold the past few days that is still hanging around. Want to be as comfy as possible to make up for not being able to stay in bed all day, haha.

Dress: Cotton On Colour blocked maxi in black / Algiers blue
Shoes: Novo 'Tahnee' black studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Saturday was such a strange day weather wise! Really windy and blustery, but still warm when the wind died down. It was the perfect jeans and tee weather, but I had to go to the physio so couldn't have my knee covered. I added a denim jacket to this, as my friend wearing hers yesterday prompted me to dig mine out, but with the weird weather I kept taking it off and on all day.

First time this jacket has been featured on the blog. I had a look for the last time I remember wearing it, and found this picture from 3 years ago where I was covered in parrots, haha! When I first bought it in a City Beach sale around 10 years ago I was so happy at the bargain I got, and wore it over and over. Although it's rarely worn now, I keep it around as I think everyone can use a denim jacket sometimes.

I wore this casual outfit to go shopping, relax in the back yard and work at Church Online in the evening. Got this tank at DFO last weekend, it was a lonely little tank sitting in among some other sale items and it happened to be my size. As there was both girls and guys stuff side by side, I'm not entirely sure if this is a guy's top? But it is slouchy and comfortable so I bought it anyway! :)

The necklace and bracelets are from my friend's jewellery line. If you have Pinterest, she has a board setup that you can view or pin here.

Wore this leather jacket as it's a little cold in the mornings to be going without a jacket on top, but I'm not too sure it looked right with the print of the dress. It did keep me warm though :) I think maybe I could have gone for a different bag and shoes too. What do you think? I just think something looks a little off about the outfit in the photos.

Jeans for casual Friday! :) Couldn't decide what shoes to wear with this, so went with my trusty little mouse flats in the end. I thought my blue glitter ones looked a bit odd with the gold hardware of the bag, but I probably could have just worn them anyway. My feet were certainly happy with the mice though, the comfiest ballet flats I own!

DFO Brisbane: Shopping for Father's Day

Father's Day is getting closer (next Sunday!)  so today I headed out to Brisbane DFO in the hunt for the perfect Father's Day gift for my Dad and Father-in-law. I usually find guys are so tricky to buy for.

Thankfully, Brisbane DFO has a lot of choices available for men's fashion, and some special offers just for Father's Day. We had a nice day browsing some of the stores and looking for great gifts for guys. And of course we couldn't resist buying a few things for ourselves! At up to 70% off, it's hard not to buy!

Just a casual outfit for Casual Friday at work. Was actually cold enough in the morning to need a scarf as well as a leather jacket, not very nice to wake up to after the warmer weather for the past few days, haha. Went with pink as it matched the tee nicely and pink always looks great with this blue jacket :)

Have had another wardrobe clearout and listed a few things on ebay, including a couple of my handbags. Feel free to check it out, everything starts at 99 cents. Even the bags ;)

Jeans and a tee again for Saturday today. Ran some errands in the morning, and walked Cooper in the afternoon. Wanted to wear my new jeans :) Saw and admired these jeans on the Sass and Bide instagram months ago, and was pleasantly surprised when I checked the site Wednesday and saw they were on sale! Bought them right away without hesitating of course. So happy to have them arrive on Friday after just buying them 2 days before.

Decided to wear my Mulberry Lily bag again, as I haven't worn it in a while. Wasn't sure if it was too much suede with the shoes and bag together though, what do you think?


Last worn: Cookie Monster teered suede flats, Mulberry metallic leopard print Lily. First time I've worn the skinnies as they are a recent purchase.
