Try-it-out Tuesday: tunic, tucked in

   I've had a rather limited imagination when it comes to styling tunics -- I've always pictured them paired with skinny jeans. Then I came across Gracey's masterful styling of her black pencil skirt, and the idea of tucking this tunic into a pencil skirt was born. I think it was the cheerful scarf print of Gracey's shirt that reminded me of my tunic. Last weekend the ironing gods deemed it necessary auspicious to iron, so the tunic finally graduated from the to-iron box to the closet.

     While this is long-sleeved, it's a light cotton, and I happened to wear this on a rare gray, rainy and windy day.
      This pencil skirt turned out to be a real workhorse during Jeans-free June! I only get to the CK outlet store about once a year, but the next time I go, I will definitely see whether I can add another pencil skirt to my closet.
     Happy Tuesday!


  1. I love this combo! Great idea for tunics to get double wear out of them :)

  2. Thanks, Katie! Don't know why it never occurred to me before. :)

  3. I love that tunic and it is from Charter club? I was going to guess tory burch! It looks great on you!

  4. Bessie - I wish I could afford Tory Burch! But Charter Club makes some great stand-ins - I saw other great tunics on sale recently. :)

  5. hurrah for versatile pencil skirts! and your tunic tucking gamble really paid off since this looks GREAT!
