The Magic of Stripes

Boho Crown Braid with Chicwish Posie Tunic Top

I’m going to keep today’s blog post brief. Because I’m writing it just as I’m about to fly out the door for a day trip to Galveston! I know I should have put this little post together last night before I went to bed, but I made the mistake of starting Downton Abbey over from the beginning. And well, four episodes later it’s no surprise how that went!

Today I’m sharing literally my go-to look this spring. A roomy boho-tunic top & my favorite skinnies. At a price point that can’t be beat, I’m sharing why I’m particularly loving this top below!

We all know the tried and true rule of avoiding horizontal stripes on clothing for fear of them making you look larger. Especially after having a baby! Well, the opposite is true for vertical stripes. Vertical stripes have the added bonus of making you appear slimmer. Now that’s something that the taco-lover in me can get behind! (Sidenote, I went to Torchy’s Tacos immediately after shooting this look! lol) This boho top is comfortable, roomy & lightweight enough even for the Houston heat. And good news, you can snag it here for 20% off with the code SUN20.

I’d probably ramble a bit more today about really who knows what. That’s the joy of having your own blog, you can talk about whatever you’d like! But in approximately 17 minutes my friend Brittany will be here with her little girl to pick Annie and I up for a day trip to Galveston. The four of us have decided that every Wednesday we’re going to get together to do something, whether it be a walk around the park, lunch or an out of the ordinary road trip. Now that I’m working from home and not necessarily around loads of people day in & day out like I used to be, these Wednesday activities have become my favorite part of the work week!

Be sure to follow along on Instagram & Insta-stories. I’m sure we’ll be sharing what sort of adventures we’re getting into down south! And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
