Today I am combining two big trends from summer that are carrying over into the fall- pencil skirts and peplum (hence the super clever blog title today). This is my first foray into the world of peplum, a trend I have been hesitant to try because of my ample apple shape. I was afraid the empire cut of the top and the wide peplum might make me look just the slightest bit 6 - 7 months pregnant. That is not the fashion statement I was going for!
Despite the maternity top feel (and you know how I love maternity clothes!), I liked this outfit. It feels very sophisticated and bold. I like the curve of the silhouette, though I think I will look for a smaller peplum next time. Curtis loved it because of the houndstooth print (huge Alabama football fan), and, well, probably because it was very form-fitting

Are you taking peplum into your fall wardrobe? Do you pair peplum with pants?
