Mint Peplum & Sunshine

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Hey! I am back with another outfit post! My last post featured some snow, which has since melted away...but it is still FREEZING! The day I took these it was almost 50 degrees, but it's back down to the 20's. Ohio weather, why must you fluctuate so much? Besides the weather, I was really excited about this outfit! Really simple, but I love the peplum trend! This is actually the only peplum item I own, because I wanted to see how it would look on me before I went peplum crazy...and I think I like it! Now how many times can I say "peplum" in one paragraph? Moving on...
I love the mint color-it is so fresh, and clean feeling? Do you kind of understand what I mean? It's okay if you don't! Plus, I love the pastel color-I get that it's winter...but you don't have to wear dark colors, or greys, or follow the "bright colors are only for summer/pastels are strictly for spring". I am sure I am not the only one that ditches those "rules". This is Beauty without Limits...including fashion limits. Sorry fashion patrol :) Now on to the outfit!
 Jeans: Urban Outfitters BDG Cigarette Mid-Rise Jean / Boots: Macy's (Baretraps) / Top: JcPenney (similar) / Belt: Forever 21 (similar)
 I might like smiling. Maybe. Just maybe.


Can you believe the ground was covered in snow not too long ago? Not complaining though, the scenery looks gorgeous!

Do you like the peplum trend? What are your thoughts on "fashion rules" for seasons?
Let me know! Thanks for stopping by!

Xo, Kelsey

    1. Have you tried to wear it? I have found that it takes a perfect length of the top, for me to be able to wear it! Play around with different lengths :)

  15. I can't remember if I've told you this or not, but I'm in LOVE with that top! Also, I'm such a goof and finally figured out that I have to have comments come to my email so I can reply to you! I'm been replying in threads and I'm not sure if you've gotten them or not. Guess I'm finally becoming a "real" blogger ;)
