Daily: Peplum

Here’s your fashion knowledge tidbit for the week: a peplum. What is a peplum, you may ask? Well, according to Who What Wear, it is “a single, short overskirt that instantly adds a little glamour or drama to any piece.” While my jacket certainly doesn’t have a real peplum on it, it definitely has the looks of one. And, boy, am I ever a fan. Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Gift (Banana Republic via eBay)
Tank (underneath): Gap
Jeans: Garage sale (H&M)
Wedge Booties: Simply Vera (Kohl’s)
Necklaces: Gift/Rue21
Earrings: Elder Beerman

My jacket was a Christmas present from my mom, and I love how it is the centerpiece of my outfit. The ruffles certainly stand out, so I tried to keep everything else as minimal as possible. This time I wanted to rough up what could end up being a fairly classic blazer (see me wear the preppy look here), which means studs and my favorite wedge booties.

I know it’s only Tuesday, but I feel like this week is dragging. Spring break can’t come soon enough - only 10 days away!
