The Thing I Thought I’d Never Wear

Style Alter Anthropolgie Peplum Top

Peplum! I actually even publicly said I would never wear it – if you’re not a stick, it’s hard look to pull off and I wasn’t even going to try. But it’s time to eat my words. I had a “want it, need it, gotta have it” moment at Anthopolgie when I saw this little peplum top. The haphazard polk dots, the thick textured knit fabric, the adorable white and navy blue combo – it had to happen.

The first time I wore this top was for a night out in Philly while visiting one of my very bestest friends. I paired it with skinny DL1961 black denim (more on my love for that brand later), heels and a grey leather jacket. FANCY. But what I really love about this top is how it can go from that, to this:

I’m really liking the contrast of a lady-like top with ripped jeans and sneakers.

And here’s a simple brass necklace I made that you guys haven’t seen before.

So for anyone else who’s been afraid of peplum, just know that it can actually be flattering, versatile and pretty darn cute. If you’re in the market, here’s a good one.

Next up: Peplum skirts. JUST KIDDING I’m not a masochist.

Putting a pep in your step,
