What I Wore: Blue Tunic and Skinnies

The days are getting longer here in Alaska, which means I can get some outfit posts in! Blogging is hard when your daylight hours are limited, school is insanely busy, and your kids’ schedules are fully fleshed out. However, the weather is getting warmer and I’m excited to share my latest evolution of post-three-kids style with you. Fashion! Yeah!

Disclaimer: I was sent this tunic at a discounted price in exchange for this review. It didn’t affect my opinion of it though, as you’ll see below.

I was so excited about this shirt because I thought it would be a good one to wear when I start student teaching in the fall. The length is right, the neckline is high, I figured it would hide my tummy pooch… However, it hides my belly SO MUCH that it hides my entire torso and is a little tent-like. I look like I’ve gained a whole bunch of weight, no? Which is SUCH A SHAME because this thing is super soft and otherwise ridiculously comfy. I haven’t given up on this shirt yet though. I’m now in search of the perfect skinny belt to try over it. Maybe that + a cardigan will save it. I really hope so. SO COMFY.
 
I’ll let you guys know when/if I figure something out. Until then, it’ll be the ultimate sleep shirt. Sorry, tunic.
 
UPDATE: I just saw someone on instagram tuck this shirt into a skirt and that is kind of GENIUS. I will have to try that too.
 
Other outfit notes: This scarf is actually one of those long skinny ones, but I tied the ends together to make a faux infinity scarf! I’m also not sure if these boots are from the girl’s department or not. I bought them in the mixed up clearance section at the PX around Christmas so it could go either way. The brand name makes me think girl’s, but the size is 7.5… thoughts?
