Remixing my floral tunic with my burgundy cargo vest

Flowers on the trees and flowers on my tunic!

I recently switched out my fall/winter and spring/summer clothes in my closet, and I was inspired to remix my floral tunic in a different way. I’ve worn this loose-fitting, A-line shaped tunic with cargo ankle pants and leggings before on the blog, but I had never tried layering something over the tunic before. (Probably because it’s a swing top.) This time I tried the look of layering the tunic under my burgundy cargo vest.

I wore this casual look for a recent “wine-tasting walk” weekend event in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, which I mentioned in last week’s monthly budget post. We happened to find a gorgeous cherry tree blooming in People’s Park for a fantastic photo backdrop.

I wore my simple gold pendant necklace as well as yellow rose earrings to tie in the yellow roses in the tunic’s floral print. I almost paired the tunic with my olive cargo vest, but switched it out for the burgundy cargo vest at the last minute. I thought the deeper burgundy color helped the vibrant colors of the roses in the print stand out a bit more.

These pics are a couple of weeks old, but there are still quite a few cherry blossoms blooming around town, little bursts of them popping up here and there. Our cherry blossom season is generally so short each spring, I figured y’all wouldn’t mind if I extended it as much as possible on the blog! 😉
