"Peplum" into Fall

Yes, I've just used "peplum" as a verb. Judge me. Peplum and Jean Shorts 1 Peplum and Jean Shorts 2

As the summer winds down, I'm slowly incorporating my transitional pieces back into my wardrobe. One of my favorite clothing purchases this past spring was this LOFT peplum. I initially bought it in tan and pink and later added this navy and teal version because I loved it so much. I think wearing peplum sweaters in the summer is a bit of a challenge, but here I kept it simple with denim shorts and a fun summer necklace.

Here's how I wore this top (and its colorful counterpart) in the spring. I've also added a navy blazer to both looks when it is cooler outside.

As much as I love summer, I can't wait to start wearing jeans and cardigans on a regular basis! Even better--dresses with leggings and boots. Swoon. What are you most looking forward to?
