The past week or two has been a little tough for me. It's been hard to sleep so I am running on empty each day and haven't been putting much effort into getting ready. But when you don't take care of yourself, you don't feel as good about yourself. So since this weekend I've taken extra time for myself in the morning. This past Sunday was a cooler day so I pulled out the yellow tunic I bought in Ireland and paired it with white jeans. It was only for grocery shopping and errands, but this pretty bright yellow had a positive effect on my mood! I got this tunic and necklace while in Ireland, but I found quite a few great options and have linked to them and have other options in the widget below.

If you aren't feeling great, does dressing up help you through your day?

  1. Such a chic outfit Laura, you must have been the most elegant woman in the grocery store! But you're right, when we're running on empty and not taking some time for ourselves we feel it - I am glad you got a little time, it's so important.

  8. what cute wedges, really this entire outfit is adorable on you. Yellow look great on you. I’m always a sucker for white pants. I have 6 pairs in my closet right now lol.

  9. Yellow is always a cheerful colour to wear and you look great! I like your necklace. I just bought a similar piece, in yellow actually haha!

    I'm a big fan of dressing up a little if it makes you feel better. Pregnancy is tough, so if putting on a pretty outfit makes you feel good, continue to do it! :) I hope you manage to get some rest soon.


    Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!

  12. What a beautiful tunic, I love the yellow color and cut of it is very pretty too! I hope you will be able to wear it after your pregnancy, too given that you got it in Ireland and it is so pretty on you. Yes, a good hair day or even just dressing up makes me feel SO much better than if I put my hair up in a wet bun and I have yoga pants on. I hate when I can't sleep, hope you get some rest soon!

  13. I like how you styled this tunic dress with the white pants! Such a pretty and elegant look. As I read your post, I was nodding my head in agreement about the "extra effort". How I'm dressed can greatly effect my mood. Hope you get some sleep in this week and thank you for linking up with the Thursday Moda!
