Wardrobe Wednesday - mix it up

I forgot to post last week so this morning I put on what I was wearing last Wednesday and then changed to what I had planned for today.

Last Wednesday:
I'm wearing my base piece which is the Jetty knit tunic; it's my favourite thing in winter since I made it last winter.   One day I'll make another in dress length.
The skirt is years old, bought it from a factory shop, it's stretch velveteen and I love it.
The top is a merino one and is also a winter favourite.
My hair is down too.

Today:
Same tunic
My Wrangler jeans, only pair I have that's high waist and comfy.
Same merino top
My shoes are Stegman
My necklace is me-made; it's a silk knit lanyard and a glass donut.  I love it cos I spun the yarn too, it's a Navajo plied silk single yarn in purple and peacock.
My hair is in a twisted bun to the side, I'll be doing some sewing today so needed it out of the way.

You look so cute with the bun!! and I love the confident pose. The necklace sounds really awesome, especially that you made it right from scratch.

Love that tunic and I love the way you are combining colour too. I feel very inspired about the hair-change-up too I need to think of some stuff to do with mine!

Your hair looks great in that fabulous bun! I also really love your tunic - what a great winter piece. I think it would be gorgeous as a longer dress too. You're so clever!

Thanks, I've recently come to love the off-centre bun. I haven't been wearing jewellery much lately but I think I'll be mixing that in a bit more.

I need to try more hairstyles, Dh has suggested I badly need to get a trim (been over 2 years) so I might ask for hints on other updo's. Thanks for the colour compliment, I find teal looks great with so many things.

Thank-you, I'll have to get more yarn to make the dress, but it's definitely on the must-do list. I'm thinking a burgundy would be nice. Btw, it's not so much clever as practiced; been knitting since I was a kid off and on :)

Love your tunic, it must be so warm! The colour is great, and suits you so well! As the others said, love your hair up in a bun, looks really nice xx

It is lovely and warm, and my favourite colour too! Thanks for the compliments.

I love your tunic! But I'd really love to see a close up photo of your necklace it sounds stunning!

I've just posted a close up photo of it on today's blogpost; hope that helps. I love the tunic too, especially when it's been as cold as it was yesterday.
