Tunic + Skinnies = Happiness

I was browsing in Target when I found this dress. I happened to try it on while wearing red skinny jeans and really liked the silhouette. I also happened to be wearing a tunic that day as well but not as long as this one. Needless to say this is my new favorite outfit formula.

Happy Thursday!

Bonus pic of DD who has been taking up a lot of my playing in the closet time.

    I've never been too into tunics (I think because of my height) but I like the graphic nature of that one and I love the turquoise accents you paired with it. Also, that's one precious baby!

  • Joyce B replied 9 years ago

    That's a great and comfortable look.
    Your little one is adorable.

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    Awww. She is adorable!!! 

    Oh, yeah - you look good, too.   :) 

    Get used to it....a new mom's fate. Although with your fab style, you will give DD a run for the money! 

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    Yeah Suz, I was warned about the mom as after thought effect at my baby shower. I'm just trying to maintain -- I can't keep up with her. She's too popular especially when we go out shopping.

  • Aquamarine replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous....both of you!

    I really like the dress/tunic over the skinnies. I have to remember this solution next time I find a cute but too-short dress.

  • Mona replied 9 years ago

    She is too adorable for words! 
    The new dress will be very versatile! love the matching shoes and necklace!

  • N-Marie replied 9 years ago

    You look gorgeous- that's a great silhouette for playing with (and soon crawling and chasing after) your little one. And your daughter is just beautiful- what big beautiful eyes!

  • Sal replied 9 years ago

    Love the tunic, and with the turquoise accents it looks very stylish.  Your DD is just so precious and cute!

  • Echo replied 9 years ago

    What  beautiful baby!!!!!! Ooh, I could just hug her. I love your outfit, too.

  • Windchime replied 9 years ago

    What an adorable baby! I can definitely see how she is taking up most of your previous closet playing time. DH and I sometimes wonder what we did with all our time before DS came into our lives.

    This tunic over pants look is really cute on you. It looks comfy, too, and practical for your new Mom role.

    I like your dress over skinnies, Day Vies. You look as fab as ever in this casual look.
    Your daughter is so gorgeous. She's going to be a stunner just like her mom.

  • unfrumped replied 9 years ago

    Adorable DD!
    You found a great formula --really like the graphic pattern on the dress, too--lively and modern.

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    Tunic and skinnies are a FFBO for me. Love this on you. And your little time sucker is adorable!

  • abc replied 9 years ago

    Adorable baby!!

    I've been using that formula a lot lately too. Three years post first baby and formula dressing is a lifesaver!

  • Kristin L replied 9 years ago

    Your DD is adorable!!! The tunic and skinnies look great. 

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    Mona - I also spied this tunic dress in sunset orange and will be wearing that sans the skinnies this Saturday to a wedding. You are right that it's a versatile piece so I could not resist buying two. Here's the link to the orange one.

  • Aida replied 9 years ago

    Lovely and cute, the both of you! Great tunic. Looks like your little one's eyes are still that lovely mysterious shade?

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    Aida - You have sharp eyes! DD's eyes look gray most of the time sometimes blue, sometimes gray/green.

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 9 years ago

    Love this!  DD is so precious and worth less time in your closet! 

  • Aida replied 9 years ago

    How fun DV! She's going to be a serious head-turner, just like mamma ^^

  • Caro in Oz replied 9 years ago

    You are both adorable :)

  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    Tunic over skinnies or leggings is a perfect way to look polished while playing on the floor with DD. She is a little sweetheart and looks like she notices everything with those big soulful eyes.

  • Janet replied 9 years ago

    Great outfit! I love the bookending of the shoes and the necklace.

    But best of all is your little darling -- so CUTE!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 9 years ago

    You look so fabulous in this, and it is a look after my own heart... Your little girl is just beautiful! I am so happy for you. :-)

  • MsLuna replied 9 years ago

    Love the tunic on you!!! Isn't it such a great formula? I've been wearing it for ages!

  • Jaime replied 9 years ago

    You look fab and your daughter is so cute! 

  • columbine(erin) replied 9 years ago

    You look great in this silhouette. It's so fun to see your beautiful daughter too.

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago

    MsKatieKat - I just discovered it (at least for the body I have now) I like the fact that the tunic has both structure and flow.

  • Beth Ann replied 9 years ago

    DD has such bright, luminous eyes.  How lovely and sweet she is!

    I love your new dress -- particularly with the blue accents.  I am always learning about color from you!

  • bella replied 9 years ago

    I miss a lot of posts on the forum because of time difference, but I am so happy I didn't miss this one. Your daughter is totally adorable!!! And you are one chic mama ;)

  • Melaine replied 9 years ago

    Definitely one of my favorite formulas....this is beautiful. I haven't been to Target in a long time, maybe I need to get back over there. Your DD is precious!!

  • gryffin replied 9 years ago

    Day Vies- your little one is so delicious!!  Enjoy every moment with your gorgeous girl!!  Love the tunic and skinnies, I am tunic and leggings girl - nothing more comfy, elegant or practical!!  Enjoy!!

  • Aubergine replied 9 years ago

    I love tunics with skinnies too. And yours looks great, especially with the turquoise accessories.

    Your adorable daughter totally steals the show, though!

  • Ornella replied 9 years ago

    Perfection, right? DD I mean. 

    The outfit too ;-)

  • replied 9 years ago

    Wow - such a great, versatile piece this will be! That turquoise neckpiece is absolutely perfect with it - and what a lovely picture you take! Your little one is so sweet - congratulations!

  • Zibbets replied 9 years ago

    Omgoodness, your little girl is gorgeous! My what big, beautiful eyes. She is absolutely beautiful, Day Vies, and you look sleek and stunning. Love the blues.

  • Alassë replied 9 years ago

    Oh, she's a cutie!
