AJ Wears :: A peplum two ways

Today's outfit was interesting. When I got dressed, I liked the over all look, but when I started taking pictures (in the Target parking lot ahem), I didn't like the outfit at all. So in the parking lot, in front of God and everybody, I tucked in my peplum. Okay, that actually wasn't very scandalous, but the results were surprising.

When I sat down to edit these photos, I actually liked BOTH ways. I only just started experimenting with tucking in peplum tops because of a remix challenge, but they really are quite versatile in that manner. The little skirt keeps everything tucked in nicely, the fitted top lends itself to being tucked into full skirts, and you get a new look from just one quick little fix. If you're not packing a peplum...I think you're missing out.

Honestly, I can't pick a favorite. I almost wish I'd had some shoes and a bag change in my car because I think I could have made this look like two totally different outfits! Another day. Either way I wore the peplum (guess which I chose to wear into Target?), the lady checking out in front of me said, "Oh my gosh! You look adorable!" And I was like, "Aw...thanks." So it didn't even matter if my peplum was in or out.
