It’s hard to believe that I’ve had a few months of outfit posts without a single tunic, as they are my shirt style of choice. I started wearing them a few months into my first pregnancy, when purchasing clothes that elongated my midsection became a focus for me. The excitement over seeing my tummy grow was quickly followed up by a realization that other areas – primarily my hips and bum – were expanding as well. Unfortunately, in a somewhat perpendicular direction from the baby bump. The tunic style has lingered as my preferred type of top, likely because so too have lingered the hips and bum. Babies or no, I think a tunic is a flattering look for many women. I tend to seek it out when shopping and reach for one in my closet on a regular basis. When I find one I like, such as this number from Boden
, I’ll grab it in a couple of colors (I have the basic navy as well as the more trendy floral). This one has a nice structure to it, with the rolled collar and the front pockets, yet is made of a super comfy, sweatshirt-like material. Good for keeping toasty these coming months!

Reality Check. It makes me a little sad to hit publish on this post, as these are the last of the “look” pictures before snow arrived, full tilt, in Minneapolis. Get ready for a heckuva lot of white and gray backgrounds!
