At the beginning of the season, I decided to browse the Nordstrom Rack website for some new tops to add to my fall/winter wardrobe. Knowing that I’d probably find a lot of spring and summer items on sale, that’s where I looked first. After only browsing for a few minutes, I spotted this vibrant Melissa McCarthy floral tunic. I didn’t care how much it was, I just knew I had to have it!
I’d already figured out how to wear the top at least 3 times and thankfully, it was in my size. There was nothing left to do but add it to my cart! I knew the item would fit, thanks to trying on a few Melissa McCarthy items before, so I was very pleased when the floral masterpiece arrived at my front door. I tried it on immediately and of course, it was perfect.
Have you ever had an item of clothing that you just KNOW you’re going to wear constantly? Well, that’s how I feel about this tunic. It’s the most comfortable top I own and the oversized fit is perfection. Anything that’s flowy and not tight to my body, I’m a fan. The fact that it was on sale for less than $40 is also a major plus!
These days I’m very particular about what I purchase. If I don’t love it and if I can’t see myself wearing it more than 3 times, I’m not going to buy it. Of course, I make exceptions for accessories, shoes and some one-of-a-kind pieces, but for everyday wardrobe items that’s my rule.
So tell me, what do you think about my Melissa McCarthy floral tunic? Do you follow the same rule as I do when shopping? Let me know!
I can’t wait to read your responses! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend and until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!

The top is beautiful! BTW I love your glasses and I should start following that rule
Thanks so much, Keisha! Those sunnies are my fave!
I love this-” If I don’t love it and if I can’t see myself wearing it more than 3 times, I’m not going to buy it.” I definitely need to share that statement with my Fiancée who is a true clothes hoarder.
Yes, mam! I had to put my foot down, lol! 😉 It’s been working so far, thank goodness. LOL!
I prefer flowy pieces too. This vibrant top is so pretty and flattering! Love your shades, too!

They’re so comfy, right?! Thanks for reading! xo
Like I mentioned on Instagram, I have the same top. Got it from Nordstrom Rack, too. Saw it on the rack and was like, hol’ up, is this even life? Immediately snatched it. Plan on wearing mine real real soon.
Great styling with the jeans and animal print accessories.

That top and cape are so cute. It’s amazing what kind of deals you can find when you’re not looking for something specifically.
Thanks, Kristine! I love a good deal, for sure. 😉

I love floral prints! And I’ve gotten more intentional about the pieces I purchase not only for myself, but for my kids as well. Looking fashionable is great, but I tend to stay away from trendy pieces that I know we won’t get much wear out of. No clothing waste here!

Same here. Trendy pieces are great, sometimes, but they have to fit into my wardrobe/lifestyle, for sure! Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Really appreciate it !
