                               Today was preppy Tuesday!  I think navy is my new favorite neutral.

                       Although yesterday was filled with grey, and that may be a close second!

Hey everyone, want a peek into what I wear on a daily basis?  Come follow me over on facebook or instagram at reallife.realstyle.  To be completely honest, it's a real stretch for me to take pics of myself and post them for the world to see.  It's not really my style (hee, hee), but growing and stretching ourselves is what it's all about, right?!

Game Day

Friday Night Football

Old Navy zipper vest / American Eagle Outfitters hoodie / jeans / SOREL boots / The North Face hat

It's amazing how just a few weeks ago, it seems we were wearing short sleeves and sunglasses for our beloved fall sports.  Now it's hat and glove season. That's Michigan for you. Just because you have to layer up doesn't mean fashion has to suffer entirely.  I love this look because it's cool, but laid back.  You never want to look like you're dressed for a 3 course dinner when you're sitting in the stands.

Great Fitting Fall Tunic

Weekend Wear

red plaid tunic / Gap super skinny jeans / Gap slip on boots / black tote / Crystal pendant jewelry

I am lovin this cool, but cozy look for the weekend.  Or any day of the week, for that matter! A leather cuffed shirt?  Sign me up!

One of my favorite things about this shirt is the length. Take note ladies, it is the perfect length for pairing with leggings/jeggings, It lands just beyond the largest part of your leg which is very important, and sometimes difficult to find in a tunic. The second best feature is the fit.  Tailored enough so you don't look pregnant and it skims the body beautifully. If you're going to pull off the tunic look for fall the fit is muy importante!
