Favorite new item in my closet...

Spring has brought so many great new arrivals online and every once in a while I come across something I just can't don't want to live without.  The Belted Cattleya Tunic from Anthropologie was one of those items for me.  I'm kind of having a serious obsession with tunics this season and this one had my name written all over it!


And a super cute necklace to go with it never hurts either:


Split Surface Belt-Anthropologie
Elench Dollop Hoops-Anthropologie
Marc by Marc Jacobs "Henry Chrono" Watch-Piperlime                                                
Bracelet-GroopDealz
Sparkling Dome Ring-Forever 21

I wore this outfit on day two of my trip to Denver last weekend...it was a beautiful day out so a cardigan was all I needed to keep warm.  When I first saw this tunic online I fell hard for it.  It's just one of those pieces I HAD to have.  Definitely a new favorite!  I love the color, the print, the length...and honestly I think it will be very versatile as far as being able to mix and match with different colors.  I'm thrilled with it!  I took it in a size 0, and it fit great.  The size 2 was much more billowy and tent-like so I sized down.  I purchased this necklace to wear to my brother's wedding in a few weeks but thought I'd take it out for a spin a little early.  I have to say, I absolutely love it!  It's one of the most fun necklaces I own I think.  The colors are great, the dimension is fab...it's just a great statement piece.  I highly recommend it if you're in the market for a new piece of neck candy!

Have you jumped on the tunic bandwagon this year?  Are you a statement necklace junkie like me?  Spill it!

This week has gotten away from me so I'm now hoping to get my Anthro fitting room reviews up by early next week.  Stay tuned!

Have a great day!

  2. You always look so great! I love tunics...so comfy for me to throw on over leggings and makes it much easier to chase around the toddler. :-)

  3. This is my first time to comment. I just recently started following your blog, and I'm really enjoying it. For years I worked in the banking world with a very restrictive dress code. I've recently changed industries, and now have more flexibility with my wardrobe. You inspire me to mix patterns and have fun with accessories, while still being appropriate. I've also jumped back in to Polyvore after seeing your sets. It's a great place to store outift ideas and items in my closet. Love the tunic on you. I've added to my wish list at Anthro...:)

    1. Thanks! At first I was worried the red/green combo would look to Christmas-y but I think it works since the green is so minty!
