tunic - c/o White Plum

I'll never forget reading an interview with Jennifer Aniston many years ago that talked about her favorite things to eat on the set of Friends and she revealed that she ate a Cobb salad every single day because she was a creature of habit. Only the heady things I read really stick with me through the years but as a fellow creature of habit that is happy to eat/wear/do the same things almost every day I could relate. Can you hear her care? Me too. My latest daily easy breezy wear is the (hopefully!) timeless tunic {and clogs - but that's a whole different post or three}. I believe the two top "tunics" are actually dresses but I felt a little more public/playground/mom appropriate wearing them with jeans. 

I relied on White Plum tunics so much for the last weeks of my pregnancy that I had to get strategic about when I wore which one lest Julia and Sebastian's preschool teachers thought I only fit into two tops (which was, um - the truth) and they've been great for the postpartum period as well. 

I know there's a lot of "leggings aren't pants" debates raging all over the internet but the White Plum tunics definitely keep things covered enough so that you can rock the leggings in place of pants and not feel like you're making some scandalous fashion faux pas (I don't care either way ... you do/wear what you want!). 

I will admit that I wear leggings as pants allllll the time around the house and nothing beats the soft feel and fun patterns of White Plum's inventory. Julia has a few pairs that have retained their stretch and bright colors even after a couple of years of lots of wash and lots of wear. 


September is the new December, especially in Florida. 

I've blogged about White Plum several times before because they never let me down no matter what season of life I'm in (pregnant, postpartum, notpregnant, notpartum) with their happy selection of trendy but sensible pieces. 

Every time I do a post and they give a discount code for the Camp's readers I always end up using it myself because I'm a such a sucker for their stuff. I found the best dress for Phoebe's baptism last year and can't wait to fit into my scalloped shorts from last summer either.

If you're so inclined, Camp Patton readers can get 25% off their entire order until 9/18 with code: 25OFFCP and White Plum is giving away a $150 credit to a lucky Camp Patton reader. Rafflecopter your hearts out and have a wonderful day!

  1. I have literally been relishing in all of their deals White Plum has been sending lately! I finally found one for some of their fleece lined leggings and o.m.heart eyes I loved it. I will say that you started me on my love for white plum, but my closet thanks you! (dancing lady ;))

  2. The whole leggings are not pants debate is pointless. Speaking of it, you might like this pin https://www.pinterest.com/pin/25192079142154601/

  9. Hey Grace! LOVE the leggings! Wondering what the waistband is like? Can you tell me? Three kids later, my torso is not as flat as it once was and I'm finding it hard to find leggings that don't squeeze the heck out of my belly! I tried to find out more on the White Plum site but didn't have any luck!! Love your blog...your life is a lot like mine just a bit more exciting! We have three kids 1, 3, & 4 and they keep me on my toes!! Thanks for any help!! I find clothes shopping post minions is quite challenging at times! :o)

  10. Ha-I meant your life was a little more exciting than mine with 5 kids versus 3!! Trying to write a comment with three kids clamoring around my feet can make for an interesting comment!!

    1. oh, totally get it! the waistband is pretty standard 1 inch thick elastic --- very soft and stretchy. Not like the workout type of leggings :)

  11. Does white plum fit true to size (and by size I mean targets size)? Also do you have a favorite few tunics for baby bumps? My little one is due New Year's Eve so I will be pregnant / postpartum all winter long.

    1. yes! i was wondering the same thing, about size and your favorites. i'm due in december, and would normally pick a size small if not pregnant. do you size up or is it stretchy enough?
      p.s. you look fabulous!

      Delete
    2. Yes - true to size! I don't size up at all. I wear a small - I'm 5'7'' and have pretty broad shoulders --- on the long sleeve ones they arms can be a little snug so if tops fit your arms tight I would go up a size!

  12. Love the Ellerly Colorblock Blouse ... and I'm pretty sure leggings will always be pants to me! :)

  13. so i'm here by way of a desperate post-ob appointment google of "how to survive 3 under 3" but i'm definitely staying for the tunics + leggings. i've never head of white plum. i'm that person who wears leggings + tee shirts in florida summer heat because i still can't figure out what else to wear (you can take the new yorker out of the city but?). so basically, in five minutes and two blog posts, you just helped me feel like i might be able to survive our new future AND be cute (slash unwashed but comfortable) doing so. so thanks for the life saver.

  14. I love all these outfits! Leggings and tunics are my go-to mommy uniform!

  15. Love all the outfits! Probably a weird request, but could you do a roundup of your favorite clogs? I love my Danksos but you always have cute, backless (heel-less?) ones that are less clunky, to the extent that that's possible, ha. Thanks!
