White Hot Dots

Polka dots and peplum are all the rage these days, so imagine my excitement when I found this Forever 21 top that was a combo of both. The peplum trend is definitely one that I love, but find that the flares are sometimes overwhelming, so it's hard to find a top that fits just right. I also liked that the shirt had an interesting cut out design, especially one that wouldn't require me to go bra-less... because this homegirl CANNOT leave the house without wearing a bra.

What are your thoughts on peplum- do you love it or is it too 80's for you? And does anyone else refuse to go out into the world sans bra or am I just crazy?

I may or may not have just spent the last 2.5 hours browsing fashion blogs. Okay so it was more like 3. So I'm throwing my own into the crazy blogosphere. Here's the thing.. having "impromptu" photo shoots are SO awkward. I put impromptu in quotations, because who spontaneously decides while they're driving by a secluded grassy area, 'why yes, this looks like a fantastic opportunity to take a series of pictures of myself'. I've always been a bit camera shy, but this is the kind of stuff I'm more comfortable with:

 In any case, here's two more beauties for your viewing pleasure.

When the maxi look was getting popular a few years ago, I figured it'd make my stubby legs look even shorter, but then I made the important realization that it's essentially feels like being naked from the waist down, and who doesn't like to sit like a man sometimes? Now that I'm a bit wiser, I'm hoping the maxi trend sticks around forever.
