Friday Favorites Remix :: The striped peplum

I'm going to be sad when this peplum inevitably falls apart (or pills to the point of grossness) because it's been a favorite piece all summer. Peplum tops are comfortable, especially when they're stretchy like a t-shirt, but they look cute. I like them because I can eat as much as I want and my burrito belly will stay nice and camouflaged under the little skirt.

Like, how cute are these ShoeDazzle flats?? I had to exchange up 1/2 a size because they're tiny, and it took me almost a month to get them, but I'm in love. I tossed out a pair of black bow flats in my purge that were a little younger and dated, so this is the perfect replacement. They'll be fun all fall! Also, it's worth noting that I'm wearing sunglasses so I didn't have to put on eye makeup. Yep, it's been one of THOSE kind of days.

Here's how I wore the peplum last week!

How did you guys remix? Link up below! And have a great Friday the 13th. Oooh, so scary.

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.

Friday Favorites Remix :: That peplum, Again

When I picked what piece from last week to remix, I had totally forgotten that I'd already remixed this piece on a Friday once before! It's going to be a great piece to transition into fall though, so I figured, remix away! Plus...I was already dressed.

So just for fun, I'm showing off not only how I wore this piece last week, but the other two times before that. Clearly, it's a favorite.

PS - In case you're interested, this is how I wore these leggings (as pants) the last time. No shame. No apologies.

Time to link up! How did YOU re-wear this week??
