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….
Weekly Wardrobe – My first jeggings!
February 13, 2017
Yes, that’s right. I have never owned a pair of skinny jeans or jeggings before; however I have been so desperate for comfy trousers for winter, I have succumbed! I have short legs and chunky thighs, but I’ve been working on my squats and lunges, and have decided fu*k it, who cares anyway if they don’t look brilliant – I need to keep my legs warm! So I bought these in the Next sale and have decided they actually look alright with a long jumper. By the way, snow was gently falling outside when these photos were taken and I was too chicken to brave the cold. So I’m afraid these photos are not up our usual quality as we’re inside on a dark winter day…..
how to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn
Do you need me to tell you how to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn / fall?
September 10, 2018
‘How to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn’ is a typical title for blogs and YouTube videos at this time of year, but really the cynical side of me wonders why? Why on earth do we need someone to tell us how to dress? It’s not rocket science: As the weather gets colder, our clothes get warmer. Right; let’s go home! However, as you probably know by now, I love all things fashion, so I absorb this sort of content all the same. So here’s my take on how to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn…..
