End Notes:
We were so excited when the kind folks over at Weardrobe invited us to raid their closet. All three of us had fun playing with the Possibilities cardigan from Anthropologie, and both A. and I enjoyed styling this light plaid tunic, also from Anthopologie.
A. wore this last week, actually, but she’s been so busy teaching and preparing for her summer class that she didn’t have a chance to post her outfit. Although this look does have a belt — one of A.’s favorite accessories — it’s actually a new and different proportion for her: a longer tunic over a pencil denim skirt with a belt just above her hips. I loved it! Casual chic perfected.
When it was my turn, I was pleasantly surprised that the tunic not only fit over my baby belly, but hugged it almost perfectly. I even like how the plaid goes all wackadoodle over the bumpage. To add a little more length and coverage, I layered the blue plaid over a purple tunic, and I used my favorite red wedges for an fun finish.
I would have never guessed that this tunic would work so well for both A. and I. The fit is completely different, but they both work and we both put our own little twist on the overall look. I need to start raiding more closets as I close in on the end of this pregnancy!

    I love how each of you styled this tunic differently. Chic in both outfits. Now you gals really have me craving a trip to Anthro :)

    That is one versatile tunic!

    I absolutely love both of these stylings of that tunic! E., you never cease to amaze with seemingly neverending preggers style inspiration. And A., I LOVE this look on you! You look so sleek yet farmer chic!! Well done, ladies!

    I love the 2 different ways to wear this tunic. And what a bonus that it fits your preggers belly so perfectly!

  5. [...] sweater from Anthropologie, and yesterday, E. and A. both showed how they rocked the same plaid tunic in different ways. A. and I also experimented with this cute plaid button down from Urban [...]
