Styling the Joe Browns Mix It Up tunic

Black Joe Browns Mix it up tunic

This particular style of tunic has been a welcome return in the Joe Brown’s catalogue for years and years. They change the colours and they change the fabrics slightly, but the style is the same, and I love it! I also own this tunic in dark red, but for this blog post, I thought I’d show you how I wore my black and grey one….

The Joe Browns Mix it Up dress is actually quite similar to the sort of clothes I make for Threads of a Fairytale, which is maybe why I’m drawn to it! It’s a patchwork of different fabrics and harmonising colours sewn together to make a tunic dress the perfect length to wear with leggings or skinny jeans when you don’t want your bum out! For this photo-shoot I’m wearing it with black fleece-lined thick leggings perfect for keeping me warm at this time of year!

I’m also wearing a pair of boots I bought from Amazon specifically for the trip away. This was actually a whole year ago when Chris and I stayed in Connecticut for a month and went exploring every weekend. These outfit photos were taken at Sleepy Hollow, which was really exciting as I’m a big fan of the film! Anyway, the boots are lined in faux fur and are pretty grippy in the snow and ice, so I do recommend them. However, if you’re thinking of purchasing a pair, I would advise you go up a size as the warm lining makes them very snug!

Styling the Joe Browns Mix it up dress

I bought this Mix It Up tunic dress so long ago, I can’t actually remember when! (It may actually be a second hand purchase from a charity shop) I like it because the materials are warm, and a bit stretchy, making it really comfortable to wear. But mainly, I’m always on the look-out for slightly unusual, quirky fashion, and this item from Joe Browns is perfect!

Styling black with lilac – Weekly Wardrobe
March 20, 2017
If you have a lot of black in your wardrobe, but would like to inject a bit of pastel spring colour, then I recommend adding a little lilac. In my opinion there aren’t many colours that go with plain black: (not counting white and grey,) purple and red are the best ones, but paler colours are more tricky. A strong black and a light tone together just doesn’t often look right, but for some reason, I think lilac is the one that somehow works. Of course, if there’s any coloured pattern on the black you’re wearing, then you can just pick out any of those to wear with your outfit. Anyway, whilst on a mini holiday in the Lake District last weekend, I wore a lilac tie cardigan with a plain black top and skirt….

I’ve had a hectic week this week. After the New Forest Fairy Festival, I had two days to do about six months-worth of cleaning before my parents came to stay! This is the outfit I wore when we went out for a lovely meal together. I thought I’d take the opportunity to wear these gorgeous wedge sandals from Faith that I can barely walk in, considering I only had to get from the car to the pub and back again! It’s not that they’re too tall – the style of the platform wedge makes them fine in that respect; but the lack of ankle support is the problem. That back heel strap keeps slipping down turning the shoes pretty much into flip-flops. Not ideal when you’re four inches off the ground! None-the-less, as you can see, they are just too pretty not to wear….

Styling the Spring/Summer 2018 trends: Pink
June 18, 2018
I have several items in my wardrobe of the dusky blush pink variety; but not so many of the brighter and pastel shades of pink that are on trend this season. I’ll have to be honest, is isn’t a shade that I think suits me very much, but this dress was so lovely, I wasn’t going to pass it by due to the colour! Some of these photos show how I styled it last summer, and some are from cooler days this spring, so they give you a couple of different ideas for how to style a pink dress….
Weekly Wardrobe – Polkadots
September 5, 2016
When I found out the theme for #IwillwearwhatIlike was polkadots, I thought, yes! I can really go for it this week! I’d already worn my red polkadot dress for the red, white and blue theme recently, so this black and white one is my best option. I do think of the 1950s with a spotty pattern, so I had a go with winged cat eyes for my make-up this time. I’m not sure how successful I was – I need to invest in a good liquid eyeliner I think, but I don’t think I did too badly with my chunky Benefit Bad Gal pencil….
