I used to be a t-shirt and shorts kind of girl. While I still love me a comfy t-shirt, I've been on the hunt recently for tops with a bit more of a flair to them. Those little details that take an outfit from ho-hum to BAM! You know what I mean.
This peplum top had all those fun details: scalloped edge, small opening in the back, and a fun black and white pattern. It's been the only thing I've actually bought from Anthropologie for about a year since it was on sale and an extra 20% off. Finally, something under $20 and in my size. The stars had to align for that one.
Speaking of details, is there anyone else that seems to become consumed with minor details?
Usually, I run with the belief that people rarely notice the small imperfections in your projects or nail polish, but with outfits I tend to focus on the little add-ons and pieces that make me feel like I've constructed an outfit that is pulling together different elements to make it my own.
I wore this outfit to a beautiful garden party my friend threw and someone commented on my outfit and said that they admire how I put together interesting color combinations that they wouldn't normally think of.
I really appreciated this compliment. I like to think I do some things outside the box. Like I'm a bit of a rebel, although I'm pretty sure mixing green, bright pink, and black/white doesn't constitute a crazy rebellious streak.
