Peplum.

A fun filled day off after a super long stretch of work (9 days to be exact)! After a scrumptious breakfast at The Templeton, Adam and I went South Granville this weekend and sniffed delicious candles at Anthropologie. That store's scent is intoxicating, and so are the interiors! So many shades of grassy greens and juicy tangerine. Speaking of tangerine...I am excited to see it popping up everywhere. I think we have Pantone to thank (or shake a fist at) for this one! Although this skirt is a slightly more chilli red/orange, I love the intensity paired with the super comfortable cotton jersey. I've scored quite a few jersey pencil skirts from Forever 21 recently, and now they are a bonafide staple in my wardrobe. Also, say hello to the perfect pretty/dressy/feminine blouse! Only $8 at my local Value Village, I looked around to make sure no one would steal this amazing find. I've always been a fan of peplums, I couldn't be more pleased with the sudden influx of them for spring. You might say that a peplum puts a little spring in my step...  Oh yes, a certain shoe/tights pairing yet again; I can't resist these tights with these wedges! They are certainly a match made in heaven.

PS: In light of what I have been posting recently, this is a truly awesome article about self esteem/acceptance from ROOKIE magazine. AKA the magazine that I wish existed in when I was in high school, and which is super kick ass. A recommended read.
