After realizing I was running low on tees, I took a trip to the Gap and completely binged on stripes ($5 on clearance!).  I’ve been living in them lately, pairing them with jeans, ankle cropped pants, and pencil skirts (and occasionally pajama bottoms for lounging around the house).  I wore this outfit to grab lunch and run a few errands on Sunday – no fuss, no muss!

Closet Confection: To Top It All Off

I’ve gotta admit that I was a bit skeptical of peplum tops when they first jumped on my radar two years ago, but now I can’t get enough of them.  It’s all about finding the perfect peplum placement (say that three times fast!) for your body type.  I purchased (and eventually got rid of) a top that flared out at my hips and made me look huge, but I like how this one hits a bit higher on my waist and effectively covers my tummy.
