I found the best-fitting tunic ever. It fits in the shoulders but isn’t too tight around my butt and hips, drapes nicely (which is a nicer way of saying it doesn’t cling to a pooch) AND I can throw it in the washer and dryer. I mean, technically it says dry clean, but don’t worry, I’ve washed (and dried) it. Best part? It’s under $50. I’ve been wearing this shirt alllll the time and love it so much I bought it in a second color. Here’s how I’m wearing it now and how I’ll be wearing it into the cooler weather.
Warm Days & Nights
Thrown over a basic slip dress like this one from Michael Stars (which also works great as a long tank over leggings in the winter), it becomes a great (unexpected?) option for warmer weather. Add flat sandals and a diaper bag for daytime or heels and a fun clutch for nights.
Clutch (old, but this fringed bag is fun and perfect for fall!)
And Later in the Cooler Temps . . .
First I just added the boots . . .
. . . then a blanket scarf . . .
(which doubled nicely as a cozy layer for baby G)
And topped it off with a faux fur vest . . . this is the softest one I’ve ever felt!
And finally, when it gets too cold to go without sleeves, opt for a coat in a fun color:
Coat (it’s on sale for less than $40. Seriously.)
I can’t tell you how much I love this shirt. I’m all about the “flowy” tops that have such a nice drape, because I’m still post partum. (Oh wait, it’s been over a year . . . whatever, I’m still going to count it.) After Zack took these photos (both times) we went and got something to eat and I stuffed myself silly (both times). Not that I’m condoning stuffing yourself all the time, but it’s nice to know you can and your outfit won’t give you away. Just saying. 🙂
