Chic & Comfy Slouchy Tunic

Good morning, everyone!

Hope that you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with your loved ones and that you completely indulged and devoured loads of delicious food.  As I mentioned previously, we host both of our families each year and this year was no different.  Although, I must admit that having a six week old baby made things a touch more chaotic.  Thankfully, my in-laws stay with us the night before as well so having extra hands was hugely helpful when it came to the kiddos.  Heck, I was able to do a “full get ready” on Thanksgiving Day.  That alone is a win in my book.

On Thanksgiving, we all value comfort so nobody dresses up too much.  Our parents definitely are the most dressy and us “kids” tend to wear jeans and sweaters or nice tops.  This year, I opted for this amazing tunic sweater.  It is remarkable comfortable and is really more like a hybrid between a sweater and a sweatshirt.  The material is a heavy knit which will definitely help keep you warm during the winter months.  Personally, I am loving the thicker material because it helps camoflauge my post-baby middle area.  Heavier weight tops paired with high-waisted jeans are essential right now.  This tunic also has a mock neck and even that is slouchy and unstructured.  So cute. This particular tunic comes in four colors including jade (pictured here), white, black and mink.  Let’s talk high-waisted jeans for a minute…if you feel at all uncomfortable with your tummy and love handle area like I do, they are a phenomenal option.  I tend to look for a 10-inch inseam which helps to keep all my “mush” contained.  This black pair is pretty much my idea of jean perfection.  The extra high waist, the long narrow legs and the perfect holes in the knees.  Anyone else a total sucker for distressed jeans?  I have linked the sweater from two different places because they each offer different color options.  (For reference, I always size down when purchasing Free People items.)

Floral Print Tunic For Fall

Good morning, everyone!

Hope you all had a nice weekend.  We spent all day Saturday relaxing snd then headed out to Dick’s Sporting Goods to pick up some workout gear for David.  I had never realized that the store would also double as the perfect play space for Ryan.  Just might be taking him there on rainy days.  From the massive wall of shoes (Ryan loves shoes) to the bikes to the putting green to the heavy bags…it is pretty much a playground on steroids.

On Sunday, we headed to the Canes Carnival.  It is an annual event that helps the Carolina Hurricanes hockey fans amp up for the upcoming season.  Picture every single bounce house imaginable and a sea of food trucks.  The temperatures FINALLY dropped and it was a perfect morning. My brother, sister-in-law and our nieces joined us too.  Nothing makes me happier than seeing the three little cousins laugh and play together so it was a blast.

Now that it actually feels like fall weather is on its’ way, outfit planning is becoming exciting.  I really enjoy the time of year when layers can be worn but aren’t necessary.  Feminine peasant style tops are a great option for this time of year.  In fact, these blouses can be worn virtually all year round.   They can be worn with cutoff shorts in warmer months, distressed denim for transitioning into fall and then paired with a vest when winter arrives.  This particular tunic style top pictured below has some really pretty details like the sweet little buttons down the front and a bell sleeve.  I am typically not drawn to purple but I totally fell for this shade.  I chose to pair it with faded black legging style jeans and a long black scarf in order to add a bit of edge to the look.
