This has been the week of soft trends – first the Western inspired trend and now peplums. If you read any sort of fashion blog you’ve seen them all with peplum tops and skirts. I love this look with skinny jeans and heels and worked out my own take with a piece I already owned. This jacket was found second hand and while it’s a touch slouchy on me, when tied at the waist it makes for the perfect jacket version of the peplum.
This past weekend was the picture of relaxation. I usually work a variety of odd jobs whether it’s part time, some work for my full time, or a weekend event, but this one actually included no work which meant I slept in, went for a long run, saw the Hunger Games, tried out City Church, and enjoyed rainy days (even though it meant my Alice in Wonderland goes global shoot concept was postponed). I even got to pull out a favorite piece of jewelry – this lion head pendant – and a straw clutch (trend #3!).
