Style Peek: blush sweater + white tunic+ charcoal leggings

Remember me? I'm back from a lovely blogging break...I've been missing being part of the community - even though I still read all your blogs daily! I think I just hit a little bit of the blahs and also took full advantage of the holidays! They were quite nice, how about yours? In order to accommodate the lazy days and big meals, I took on a sewing project and made this a-line white cotton tunic...to wear with leggings and oversized sweaters. Soooooo comfy! It's not a waist-cinching outfit, but sometimes you just gotta be comfy, right? I feel like a necklace always makes it more dressy - ha ha!

I picked up this blush pink sweater at Gap for under 20 bucks over the holidays - their deals have been pretty ridiculous lately. I'm kind of loving leggings too...but I made sure to make my tunic cover my bum - that's the cardinal rule ladies. Now that I'm back to work it's back to less slouchy outfits but I thought I would share my casual dressing for fun. What's your go-to comfy outfit?

Things have also been busy with our bathroom reno, we booked our honeymoon to the Florida Keys in May (loved it so much last time we just had to go again!) and I found out my sister is having a boy! January has showed no signs of slowing down so far!

Have an amazing day friends!


  1. Welcome back! You look lovely. My go to (or uniform as the hubby) calls it is yoga pants and a tee.

  2. Gorgeous items!! Looks great together!

  3. I love how the sweater gives the outfit such a different feel, despite it's unassuming colour! Beautiful!

  4. I admire your ability to take on sewing projects. My uniform is jeans, a tee, and a sweater. Yours is comfy while still looking pretty. Nice!

  5. Ooh loooooove the leggings and cardi! My go to outfit would also be leggings and a long shirt (Yes...I always like to cover my bum too when I'm wearing the leggings!) Hehe. I also do love my yoga pants. So comfo :)
