Floral tunic

Grace and Lace Prairie Meadow Tunic and Athleta Ponte Luxe legging
Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Earrings: Kendra Scott "Bexley" (gifted) | Tunic: Grace and Lace "Prairie Meadow Tunic" (c/o) | Bralette: Fabletics "Dash Seamless Bra II" | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip (similar) | Bottoms: Athleta "Ponte Luxe Legging" | Shoes: Vince Camuto "Bodell" (limited sizes) (other red lace up option here

This floral tunic makes my heart sing! I was so excited to see it online - the dark floral print is so good, and you know I love my strappies! It's definitely very roomy, so I decided to just let the oversized fit do it's thang and wear a strappy bralette underneath it, which is why you're seeing the straps at my shoulders. It's tricky because it almost looks like the straps are part of the tunic! I love when I'm too clever for my own good. Since I love pairing sweet and spicy together, I quickly reached for my new Athleta leggings with zippers and faux leather to wear with the floral. I say they are new, and they are - I just got them in the past month - but I've worn them a half a dozen times already. I got them in a petite small in case you are curious!

It's been quite busy the last couple of weeks and in all facets of my life! Work is such a scramble right now trying to prepare for our big event in a couple of weeks. Blogging hasn't been super hectic since I've cut back just a little, but last week's TV appearance was so very exciting for me and I also just booked my ticket for the rewardStyle conference in April. Two huge blog milestones! (If you're going to the conference BTW, please let me know!!) And then there is Pilates, which is busy in and of itself! In a good way, of course. I'm very positive that having to do Pilates so often keeps me sane given everything on my plate at the moment.

And then there is home life! We are in between renters at our rental property, and while we do have a prospective replacement tenant, there's a lot of stuff that we need to do to the house before they move it. Odds and ends, including replacing the kitchen appliances. We thought it made more sense to move our appliances in our current house into the rental house and buy new appliances for ourselves. So, that's what we spent most of our Saturday doing - appliance shopping. Then our bed literally broke on us last week. We could fix it, but we haven't been crazy with the mattress situation. I've been wanting an adjustable bed FOREVER, and we finally caved and bought one. Everything arrives next weekend and I could not be more excited!!!

Whew! Told you it's been busy! At least I'm feeling productive, and productive is always a good thing even if I'm exhausted by 8pm!! Have a great week! Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by!
