coast to coast neutralblocking

I was not 100% sure about this top when I bought it.  I wanted to get a new outfit (already bending my in my goals) for the first day back to school, so I ran into TJ Maxx and fell in love with this Cable & Gauge neutralblocked (?!) tunic.  It definitely looked different on the hanger, but that's what I get for not trying it on in-store. The cherry on top of this tale of a Maxxinista? I only took one of the price tags off of it accidentally, so yeah, I spent 6.5 hours at work with a barcode on my back.

 One of the Eagle scouts at my school painted a huge mural of the United States of America beside the playground for his final project.  Pretty cool, huh?
First I was in Memphis, Tennessee...
THEN, I was in CALI baby! (Hey, Dani!)

  7. lol.  I've totally left the size sticker of some jeans on my thigh for half a day, so I feel your pain on the barcode.  You look fabulous in this tunic/poncho, pontunic thing.
