I recently had an opportunity to visit Vancouver local designer Diane Kennedy's studio. I came home with this lovely a-line animal print tunic top.I like this tunic shape because, it is very comfortable,  its a-line shape still shows my shape and it is long enough to wear with leggings (because leggings are NOT pants). Then I realized that when I belted the tunic it created a bit of a mock peplum. So I gave it a test drive with a pencil skirt for work.

For a bit of extra fun I paired it with a some striped grey and blue tights. And clearly need to work on my photoshop skills so that the tone of my photos match. The one on the left gives a more true colour for the tunic.

The one thing I don't love is the necklace I wore. It is a bold black piece, but it doesn't fit with the higher cowl on the tunic. Will need to play with my necklace length.
