peppy in peplum

Even though I normally post about professional looks, I do love a good weekend wear post here and there! We’ve had a few warm nights, so I’ve been enjoying my summer clothes mixed in with my fall clothes. And because it is the weekend, I’m definitely peppy in peplum.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I actually was wearing this cardigan in my last post. I have this cardigan in three colors, which I grabbed when from Banana Republic when they were on clearance. I think these three cardigans are the sweaters I wear most frequently throughout the year. I wear them from coffee to cocktails, which makes it easy to transition them for all sorts of events and times of day. I find that Banana Republic and J. Crew have great options for versatile cardigans that can be found on sale and are great quality.

2) I plan on wearing this top and cardigan with dress pants and closed toed heels for work. Here, it works for the weekend with jeans and heels. I frequently write about work clothes serving double duty as weekend wear, and this top is no exception. I’m also thinking of wearing it with a button down underneath, but need to try it out first! Either way, this is a perfect coffee to cocktail top. 

Anyone else have pieces that they wear both during the week and on the weekend?

Thanks for reading and commenting, readers! I hope everyone had a good weekend!

    • LOL I got feedback from a few people that I could loosen up, so I’ve tried to do that! There’s a LOT of awkward outtakes, but there’s a few gems too. I decided to just give up on the “this may look awkward” mentality. Don’t mind me posing awkwardly in this construction site…. :)!! And yes! You can!! xo

  1. Hellooooo peplum! This combines basically everything I love: nautical stripes, navy and red (my faves!) and peplums, which are a total Godsend for people like me who never actually grew curves and therefore need carefully constructed clothing to give us a non-12 year-old boy look. Hooray!
    I love that this top could totally go from work to play so easily too – I am all about fashion versatility… Heheh mostly because I’m too lazy to change outfits multiple times per day! 😉
