Peplums-a-Plenty

Firstly, (is that a word? My spellcheck isn't correcting me but I feel like it should be. I'm worried.) I hope you had a fantastic MLK day yesterday. I went to a wonderful program honoring the life of Dr. King through the arts. It was all types of amazing.

Secondly, a little fact about me, I enjoy a good peplum. They make me endlessly happy with all their little pseudo-skirtness. They seem to say, "I have aspirations to be a skirt, but why do that when I can just hang out here and be awesome?" I hear you peplum. I had aspirations to be an astronaut who moonlighted as a figure skater when I was younger, but I then I thought, "Why be a space figure skater when I can chill on earth and hang out on the internets wearing outfits and whatnot?" I mean, I don't really remember my thought process at that time, but I'm fairly sure it went something like that.


I also love military style jackets. When I found one with a peplum my heart just about exploded with joy! I'm glad it did not. The green top also has a skirted bottom. Yay and yay!

Double peplum. Cooler than a double rainbow? I think so.





If anyone knows any skating astronauts, let me know. I think I might still like to make that a reality.

  1. bahaha this is so cute! And you are hilarious :) I think I wanted to be a ballerina that only had to wear the outfits, not actually practice. Like, ever. Maybe that's why I love the skirty peplum look as well! :)
