I've had major reservations about peplum tops, but I think I've officially turned the corner. And this one is so charming. I love the little cap sleeves and the pretty lace fabric, and the color is absolutely stunning. This top would be so chic with dark jeans and little booties or flat sandals, but equally fabulous paired with pencil skirts and pumps for workdays.
While denim-on-denim may not exactly be an "opposites" look -- in fact, it's the opposite of opposites -- it's a fashion contradiction that I find totally intriguing. After avoiding the mixed-denim look for years, I'm ready to embrace it for spring. I've decided that the key is in the contrasting hues and textures of the denim pieces (think: dark jeans and light chambray tops), as well as breaking the look up with standout pieces like scarves and jackets. And for those of us who are a little more shy when it comes to the look, colored, printed, and white jeans are heaven-sent.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
