 I read an article recently about fashion trends that are are supposedly "out". Some of them I agreed with and some of them I didn't. One of the ones I didn't agree with was the peplum trend. Their argument was that since it's been around since 2012 it's outdated. Seriously! Am I supposed to throw out everything in my closet that is over a year and a half old?  Then I thought, who decides these things anyway? I think if you like it then you should wear it! Sure, there are trends that I'm sick of but if you still like it then who am I to criticize? So, let's all just wear what we love and express ourselves freely without fear of judgement, ok?! Who's with me? Sorry for the rant, I'm done now.

I really like how this outfit turned out! I started with the top then added the pants that matched the lining of the shirt- pretty easy, right! Then I couldn't find a necklace I liked with it but I found this scarf with the same colors in it and decided to go with it! I'm not usually so matchy matchy but I think it works because of the different patterns and textures! I love the blend of the boho accessories and the sort of preppy classic outfit. I think it makes this look unique!

  7. Agreed! It took me a year to even buy a Peplum blouse (I thought I hated that look!) I think you can make most things updated by adding them with current trends or classic pieces.
