I knew exactly what I wanted to wear for this week’s challenge “Orange” and both items were brand new into my wardrobe thanks to the PSFWA Clothes Swap. When Gisela busted into the joint wearing one of her new creations I knew that at some point I’d have to try it on. Thankfully she’s an awesome friend and let me prance about it in for awhile but then she said she loved it on me so much that I should keep it. Who in their right mind was going to say no to that offer? No one. The maxi skirt is actually a strapless maxi dress, I can’t remember who the original owner was. It’s lovely, light and flowing.

I’ve never worn peplum before and I’m still not entirely convinced it’s a style I could wear everyday but I love wearing this top because it was made with love by a friend, someone I believe in. I’ve also worn it with denim skinny jeans and my black jersey pencil skirt. Wearing a fitted bottom definitely shows off the peplum more but I kind of like the subtly of it when paired with a big full skirt. A few brass and tan accents and the outfit is complete. Big thanks to my sister Stephanie for taking these photos for me!
