Hello autumn. I feel you.
You make nights so much more fun. I do love a doona snuggle. Yes, I do.
And I do like that it’s not super sticky and sweaty. That it is actually possible to get dressed in something other than the lightest cotton and not feel like a boiled sausage by midday.
It’s about this time of year that I open my wardrobe and it’s like a choir of angels is singing to me. My trans-seasonal wardrobe (which is most of my wardrobe) comes into full play.
I can finally wear jeans again. And leggings. Which brings me to the point of today’s Model and Me post.
See, from now until about September, I’ll do a daily wardrobe shuffle that consists of jeans one day, leggings and tunics the next. Both are looks that can be dressed up as required or down if I’m sitting at home in front of the computer with my heater by my side and ugg boots on. True story. Come winter, I will take a photo and prove it
Now this tunic top/dress and legging outfit is all about comfort – and clothes that are easy care and easy wear. The kind of clothes that you can throw into the wash (I put mine in a lingerie bag to prevent snagging), hang up on the line and know you can wear again the next day if you need too. The kind of clothes that make travelling or even weekends away super easy.
I love that you can also wear a tunic dress that may be a little shorter that you would opt for in winter because a pair of tights or leggings can camouflage all manner of sins.
I’ve blogged about Queensland label Verily before and will do again as long as designer Leonie Macleod continues to produce garments that suit my needs – and many of your needs too.
This season, Leonie’s taken that one step further, extending her range to offer designs up to size 24. (CLICK to visit Verily)
The extended range uses the same design principals that Verily has become known for, with the addition of great pattern making to allow for a generous bust, tummy and hip. The range is youngish, stylish and simple.
The emphasis for the collection has been timeless design, great fit and creating pieces that you will love wearing. The inspiration has been the women I get to dress, perfectly imperfect in every shape, size and style who want clothes that are easy to wear and make them feel beautiful. - Leonie Macleod, Verily
So what’s taken my tunic fancy this season? A couple of pieces actually.
Shall we take a look at the model wearing them first? Of course we will … you know the drill.
Either of these tunics can be worn dressed up with heeled boots and tights or dressed down with ballet flats and leggings or tights and flat knee-high or ankle boots.
As it cools down I can add I layer under the In Pieces tunic and wear the Metalicus trench over the top.
I’m also going to wear the Winter tunic back with a pair of skinny leg jeans for a different look again. It’s short enough that this will work for me as an alternative.
Viva la Tunic, I say. What say you?
Do you embrace a tunic dress and leggings combo or are you firmly in the jeans and pants camp?
