Unless I’m doing something like the Walmart challenge a few weeks ago, I typically don’t wear outfits where all the pieces come from the same store or clothing line, but this combination just really worked for me, regardless of where the pieces came from.  The weather has been wet and gloomy, and I really needed some color in my life to brighten up my day.

Not to mention it gave me an excuse to carry this fabulous Michael Kors bag my hubby gave me for Christmas. I actually found it at a consignment store in November, and I texted him a photo of it with the words “hint, hint.” He got the hint. And that’s among the reasons I love this man. A luxury purse in my favorite color in brand new condition at a secondhand price? He knows his wife :)

The tweed blazer and peplum top made the outfit skew a little conservative, so I added the destructed jeans to make it more casual. The ballet flats with the studs in the back were a recent find, and I love them! I have to break them in a little, because they’re a little harder than I would like, but with time, they’ll be great walking shoes.

Also, please excuse the bad hair day. I still felt like a million bucks :)

      Thanks Brooke! Every time I think I’m tired of peplum, I find a new way to wear it, or a new style of peplum that I have to have. It helps that this was on clearance :) I actually bought this top in 2 colors.

      Thanks Heather! They had a bunch of different colors, but I liked the nude the best. Now if only they’d start making “nude” that actually matches my skin tone…

      Alison, that’s exactly what drew me to the jacket. The fabric is great quality and looks really upscale, but the price was incredible! This one will be a wardrobe staple for as long as it fits me!

    You look gorgeous girl!! I love target. Funny that all the pieces happened to come from there :) I LOVE this tweed jacket, oh. my. gosh. How long ago did you get it? And those flats are darling too.

      Jessi, I got the jacket last week, and it’s actually still on sale at the Target website for less than $18. You can get it here: Mossimo tweed jacket. I hope you love it as much as I do, and thanks for reading!

      Lol…thanks Abby. I tried to do a “wash & go” with my hair, but it wasn’t cooperating. It was all lopsided and uneven, but you know what? I rocked it anyway ;)

      Nikki, as soon as I saw them, I had to have them! It’s tough to find distressed denim that doesn’t show too much skin, or that fits right. The waist here is still a little lower than I would like, which is why I wore the peplum top, but otherwise, the fit is fantastic!

    Yay! The color combo is divine, your hair is gorgeous and Hubby gets an A for scoring the bag!
    The deconstructed jeans are a fun twist with the ladylike blazer.

      Thanks Shon! I was crossing my fingers that he’d take the bait, and I was like a kid in a candy store on Christmas morning when I saw that he did :)

    I am so in love with that peplum top! I have like three of them in my virtual cart! It looks fabulous on you and I love it paired with the pink jacket!

      Lindsay, isn’t peplum awesome! I have so many peplum pieces now that I really need to stop buying them, but they’re incredibly flattering, particularly when low-rise jeans aren’t very flattering at all and the peplum covers that awkward place where the waist of the jeans sit :)

    I am particularly fond of the soft blue top, it is so pretty. And the bag…your hubby IS a darling. Love it and how wonderful he was able to get at a discount too.

    I love the color combination, and the peplum top and jacket look so good on you. I love your hair, too. You have so many cute outfits here on your blog… you have AMAZING style! I love Target and could pretty much daily make outfits with just stuff from them! I am also the same with Old Navy, H&M and F21. I’m pretty much just cheap so all my outfits come from the same 4 stores. PS. Thanks for commenting on my blog!
