Peplum, please – collab

Prancing around in my pretty Elegantees peplum top with Kimi from Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair. Kimi is a fellow grad student who shares my love for Taylor Swift and doesn’t disappoint with the cute cat pictures on Instagram. She realized we owned the same peplum top, so we each styled it our own way, me wandering around in my usual skirt and some sweet Poshmark scores and Kimi in chic jeans and a statement necklace.

Be sure to check out Kimi’s peplum outfit post (and her Instagram, THOSE CATS, I AM SERIOUS) and the rest of her blog for her current “Two Bloggers, One Garment” series. I am so happy I could be a part of this and work with a very creative, hard-working blogger.

Ciao.

Minimal pieces with bold elements. This top is one of my favorites that I own because it really tests my styling capabilities. It’s also quite dramatic, and is rather short on my long torso. I paired it with these high-waisted black jeans and waddup. Instant balance.

I haven’t shopped for spring clothes yet because I’ve had other expenses lately like oh, I don’t know, A PLANE TICKET TO GERMANY. Yes, homie. I am going to Germany in June. I haven’t been out of the country since 2009, and it happened to be to Germany for my study abroad program in college. I am just a giant bag of excitement. A GIANT BAG.

Keep it real.

Overcast

I should definitely be wearing a jacket in this photo because in an actual stunning turn of events, Houston is so chilly.

This pretty little top was designed by Chelsea from the blog Zipped and is sold through Elegantees. Chelsea quickly became one of my favorite style bloggers after I stumbled across her photos in a Google search for pixie pants. I really like bloggers with an attainable sense of style for the normal working girl, which you will definitely find on Zipped.

So ruffly. So gray. So perfect for this cloudy, cold weather. I can’t wait to wear it with my own pair of pixie pants and a leather jacket.

I would also like to point out that the charms on my bracelet are made out of 12 gauge bullets. It’s good to know that I have friends who see bullet jewelry and immediately think of me. I’m just so hardcore (no, I’m not).
