Joe Browns "Live Life Colourful "


I was tickled when Joe Brown's got in touch, my daughter always wore this brand in her teenage years. So I got to tell her nicky nicky ner ner I'm not too old to wear this brand!....



The brief was to choose something to wear and find something colourful to feature it against. This wall actually belongs to the playschool round the corner to wear I live. After driving round to find something bright, I forgot that this was right under my nose!


This is a sleeveless dress, and although it was sunny it was way too cold ! I layered it with a long sleeve T shirt. I look forward to wearing it without the T shirt !


As it turns out, when I looked through the Joe Browns site I can see that they have grown up a little bit too. I was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't make up my mind on what to choose. Here are some of my favourite pieces ....



                                                          NAUTICAL JACKET £54.95



                                                SUMMER TWO PIECE BLOUSE £34.95



                                                         NAUTICAL WAISTCOAT £44.95



                                                             SANTORINI SHIRT DRESS  £34.95


                                                          PAPAGAYO DRESS £34.95




                                                          GARDEN PARTY DRESS £39.95


Not bad prices either, and beautiful colours for summer. The jacket and waistcoat I think will look perfect with jeans. Take a look at the Joe Browns site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

  8. You look fabulous, Laurie! That dress is so pretty! I'm also really drawn into that nautical waist coat and the garden party dress. Who doesn't love a garden party dress? Plus, I have a thing for belted dresses and coats.

  11. This outfit -- and you in it, of course! -- are just gorgeous, Laurie! The colors just pop from that black background and you've paired it beautifully with black tights and black booties. It's really a stunner! <3
