Today's outfit post reminds me of a red and white candy cane. Each piece has been in my wardrobe for a while, yet I have never worn them all together. Funny story about this peplum top: It's actually a tube top, and previously had a large red bow on it. I bought it because I liked the pattern, it was peplum, and as an added bonus: it was on final clearance at TJMaxx for $5.00. Yet, I wasn't sure how I wanted to wear it, and I really disliked the bow. So it sat in my dresser drawer for 2 years or more...One day while perusing my closet for new combination ideas, I happened to notice that the sweater and the peplum top went together very well. It looks very similar to a twinset. I cut off the bow, and wa-la!
The mint pants seemed like a natural match. Friends of this blog know that 9 times out of 10, I stick with Not Your Daughter's Jeans as my go to pants. The fit is just wonderful...Ah- I digress! Any who, there are times when I deviate, and this is one example. I like the fit of these pants, but I must say, in my opinion they don't really do anything for me. Don't get me wrong, I like the color, the length, and fit overall. They just seem to lack the 'umph' that I look for in a pair of pants.
