Summertime staple lives on!

One of my favorite purchases this summer happened at an Old Navy near my house.  I was looking for a great deal on some shorts that would likely be destroyed by the end of a vacation when I stumbled upon their collection of beautifully colorful tunics!  Nothing incredibly goundbreaking, but just a nice collection of classic tunics.  Maybe they were meant for beach wear, I don't know.  I zeroed in on a red-orange patterned number and it was mine.  (As you can imagine, it didn't exactly break the bank, either.)  I'd never been much of one to wear a tunic, but it's turned out to be a fave!

Fall is a kind of magical time between the thick, cozy sweaters and crackling fireplaces of winter and the warm and breezy sweet air of summer.  So.... BLEND THEM!  I just layered some skinny jeans under the tunic, and, voila!  Fall appropriate tunic wear.

A little shout out to my newfound love: yoga!  Been doing it at least 3 - 4 times a week and feel worlds different.

Even though tunics don't usually fit into my usual repertoire, I felt extra at home in my accessories.  I'm wearing my all-time favorite Anne Klein wedge/flats and my go-to wristwear and necklaces.  If you want to try something a bit out of the box, but need a little comfort blanket, try bringing in your tried-and-true accessories to make it feel a little more homey.  

What do you think?  Does the tunic stay?
