So I talked about my obsession with the peplum look. Just a bit of a recap I have about 14 in my wardrobe most of them are mesh and zip up the front. On a recent trip I found two beautiful ones an maroon and a forest green one. I could imagine the possibilities as I said out loud to myself I hope they have them in multiple colors when I spotted the first. I went straight for them. I saw 3 maroon green and a leopard print my heart started to pound I got all giddy and excited because there were only a few of the mesh left. I asked the sales associate to please take it off the mannequins. Have you ever done that undressed the mannequin? I’ve done it on several occasions.
I knew that when I bought these they would not only carry me through the next 8 months but beyond in the next coming years. I am a buy now wear now type of person. I have a few select pieces that are occasion only but I wear clothing as soon as possible. I wanted to wear this to church and beyond. I had a full Sunday. My uncle was retiring from his mega church and we had a full on gospel musical celebration. Over 15 church choirs were scheduled to sing. Almost 4 hours of music and praising. Let me tell you about the black church. We show up and show out. I had so much fun with my family and celebrating my great uncle on his retirement. He has been serving his church for over 50 years. So my church service was at 7:30 a.m. and the Gospel service was at 4:00p.m. You better believe that I took a long nap lol. Naps are so so so good. I remember when I was younger in the service I would take 45minute naps. They were the best for the rest of the day.
So on this day I decided to wear the maroon mesh peplum with this cobalt blue button down and Jersy knit pin striped pants. These pants are the most comfortable that I own. I have had them for years thrifted years ago the waist is this stretch elastic that is so comfortable. My shoes are these fab patent faux leather I bought from payless long long ago they were so comfortable I bought a second pair. I wish I had bought a third pair. My earrings were a simple drop grey pair that were light weight. My sister was kind enough to take these photos for me. I am so glad she supports what I do. Sometimes it is a family affair doing the picture taking process.
