Peplums and Pastels - OOTD

Hey Subbies :)! Happy Thursday! I just wanted to do a quick post on the Outfit of the Day, that I wore yesterday. I was asked to dinner by a wonderful woman from my new church down here in GA. That was the only thing on my "to - do - list" where I had to leave my house to do it. This was my first time meeting with her outside of church, so I wanted to put my best foot forward. I didn't want to seem too dressy, but I did want to wear heels (what can I say, it's the girly girl in me)!

I chose to pull out peplum and pastels based on the post I recently wrote a few days ago (about Winter Pastels). This was a huge success. I paired my mint green blazer from Forever 21, my cream colored long sleeve peplum from Forever 21, my coral denim jeans from Charlotte Russe, and my nude colored Steve Madden pumps to create the foundation for my outfit. I chose the pastel variations of my alma mater (FAMU) using (pastel) orange and green!

I topped the outfit with some great accessories. I sported my "seaside" charm necklace and men's gold watch from Target, along with my nude colored hobo bag from Forever 21. I really liked how this outfit came together. It looks very polished (with the blazer and peplum) but refreshing with the soft color combo. Check it out below :)

Here is how you can spruce up this outfit with just by adding or removing the jacket. The first look I removed the mint green blazer, the last picture I'm seen with the mint green blazer. If you think this color combination is a bit too much for your taste you could tone it down wearing a cream blazer and swapping the coral denim to regular denim jeans or even slacks.

Close up of the necklace! This necklace helped to pull the entire outfit together, because it has coral and turquoise accents. I also wore  my nude lipstick to go along with the nude pumps and purse.

I've vowed that I will paint 2013 by including more color in my wardrobe. I believe this is a good start!
