Remember when peplum was all the rage? I used to have so many peplum tops but sold most during my moves last year. (I moved 4 times last year for those of you that don’t know. Would not recommend it.) Like most trends, peplum has made a comeback. I’m back on the peplum train and bringing it back to the blog as well! This peplum-hem tank is a recent sale find that I’ve been wearing a lot. Sizes are limited, but it’s still available online for only $7!!
This is the perfect top for any gal who is low-maintenance (ahem, lazy) when deciding what to wear. It’s so versatile because it’s neutral. The peplum-hem and shift from horizontal to vertical stripes make it anything but boring. You can dress this up with a pencil skirt or dress it down with shorts or distressed denim. This further confirms my theory that you can never go wrong with stripes.
A note on the tote bag for those interested. I use it almost every day for work because it’s large enough to hold my laptop, planner, etc. It’s vegan leather though it’s very durable. My version is white on the inside so I don’t use that side but the black/tan color combo I linked is PERFECT! The small clutch is useful for small odds and ends like lady products. Just sayin. It’s nice to have those things concealed. If you need an affordable but quality tote that you can throw around, this is a great option.
As I’m writing this, the sun is just about to set and it’s still warm but apparently Seattle is going back to gloomy for the next week or so. Ugh! Despite the iffy weather, I’m definitely already getting excited for the weekend again. One thing Jared and I want to do is go to University Village then get happy hour at one of our favorite spots nearby.
Fingers crossed that we’ll find some things for decorating our apartment! If you read my last post then you know it’s a major goal of mine to make this place feel more like home. Luckily I’m also working on a pretty exciting project that pertains to decorating soon :) Stay tuned!
Aaaand with absolutely no transition at all, can we talk about summer TV?! This Friday, Orange is the New Black comes back! A few other shows that are returning that I’m excited for are Orphan Black, Animal Kingdom, and The Leftovers. Everyone has been so excited about The Bachelorette but I am just not into it. Some major FOMO going on over here…but soon I’ll have new episodes of shows I’m into as well :)
