Dress Up, Dress Down | Peplum and Boyfriend Jeans

Happy Wednesday, loves!



I love the idea of juxtaposing elements - feminine and masculine or polished and casual - You can make such interesting outfits thinking this way. That was sort of the idea with this outfit. A girly peplum top with loose boyfriend jeans, black and white, topped with gold-toned accessories. What do you guys think?





I have been having quite a week so far - I've met up with some of my old friends/co-workers (I call them my bro-workers). Washington, DC is a very transient city - people always come and go and many times, my friends' jobs require them to move or transfer to other states. On Monday a dear friend reunited the old gang and we caught up over drinks and political discussions. It was so good to see them all again. I almost forgot how much I missed my bro-workers until I saw them again haha!




How do you stay connected to your friends?

Top: Forever 21 peplum top, Forever 21 blazer
Bottoms: American Eagle boyfriend jeans
Accessories: Prada bag, H&M necklace, Forever 21 rings
Shoes: Zara pumps

  29. Pretty look! It's so hard to find time to see friends but it's a definite must! My girls and I make sure we at least get dinner once a month. We each get to "plan" the night a different month! Our "meetup" is next week and I can't hardly wait.

  38. This outfit walks the line perfectly between casual and polished. The entire look would have been perfect for fashion week, where black and white contrast was the reigning trend.
