Polka-dot Peplum & testing out my new shooz

I actually own a peplum top and have owned it since before peplum became a "thing" (do I get a prize for being first? lol) but it's never shown up on the blog and every time I go to wear it I take it off...because it has a grease stain right in the middle of the chest. I don't know why I don't just give away or throw out this shirt, because I will probably never, ever wear it again. Anyway, another trendy item I got during my recent excursion to Forever 21 was this polka-dot peplum top. I would have preferred one with sleeves (and I'm still looking for a white one with sleeves to replace my broken dreams of a white H&M one - sidenote, the top is sold for like $29 or $34 dollars, so I pity the fool who pays that $69 ebay price!) but I really liked the fit of this and I actually don't own any polka-dot items that I can think of so it filled those voids in my closet - 2 for 1, yay. I wore this to a BBQ this past weekend. This was the first time I wore these shoes for an extended period of time (5 hours) and my feet didn't complain. Say hello to Wednesday photo bombing my shot :)

  8. Hard to believe this is my first visit to your blog! Sadly, the law loves keeping me away from the blog world--as I'm sure you understand. I love your professional and off-duty looks! Mine vary greatly, too.

    P.S. A bunch of the younger women (including me!) in my office also carry a black Le Pliage Large Tote! We love that it fits our legal-sized files and all our other paraphernalia while keeping it all protected from the elements. Great minds!

  10. I had no idea you are a lawyer! The large le Pliage is a great idea for a work tote. I've been carrying my giant Michael Kors bag since January and it's already starting to show signs of wear, I could definitely use a more durable and wallet friendly bag in my rotation
