Day 1: Runway to Reality

Playful Peplum

Aren’t you swooning over these silhouettes? I love the feminine and fluttery feel of peplum. Thankfully it’s a trend that’s here to stay! Tory Burch, Peter Som, and Zac Posen all showed peplum in their fall 2012 shows. If you have a boyish figure like I do, you’ll go crazy over peplum’s hourglass effect.

Have a great weekend everyone! xo Photo Credits Top row (left to right) Topshop Petite Pearl Collar…

I paired my H & M floral blouse with my Gap polka dot calf hair loafers for a fun pattern play. Florals are not only reserved for spring and summer months, ladies! I’m all about florals any time of the year. The black accents on my top reflect the fall season and avoid the look from feeling too spring-y.  Polka dots are another trend that can transcend the seasons. Whenever I wear polka dots, I always think of Julia Roberts’ “Pretty Woman” dress. Polka dot accessories are such an easy way to change up your outfit whether it’s a scarf…
