Whenever I go shopping I always avoid trends. I don't know why I do this, I despise them and secretly love them at the same damn time. I love trends because it's what's hot in fashion and there is always something new and fresh popping up on the scene. I hate them because they rarely translate from season to season, year to year and everyone seems to be wearing the same thing. I hate feeling like I'm looking like everyone else. I tend to stray away from whats popular and go for the unlikely choice. I just like to be different. I like to stand out. My love for eclecticity out weighs my love for trends. Having stated that, I'm completely about to contradict everything I just said lol.
Over the weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday. I didn't do much, just had dinner with my friends and went clubbing. I asked my girls to dress up for our dinner date, in classy/sexy outfits as I would do the same. I describe the look as "church lady chic".
While browsing my favorite site ASOS I came across the Mint Peplum pencil skirt. I thought It was really cute but I have seen SO many people wearing this skirt (I'm sure you have too) and not to mention, wearing peplum. While, I like this trend on others, I didn't really care for on me. With the pastel and peplum being really hot this season, I wanted to stay far far away. But after having a conversation with myself I realized it's not that serious! lol. It's just a damn skirt and the fact that it was a gift and on sale, made it all the more alluring. Why would I turn it down? I'm not gonna lie, I do feel "some kind of way" about possibly being the last person to blog about this skirt but whatever, Who cares?
I paired the skirt with a cropped floral cardigan from Torrid (last season) and Jessica Simpson sandals. I kept the jewelry simple with a pearl necklace and a thick bangle. My bff told me that I looked like a "Southern Bell" or a GCB lol. That's the look I was going for.

Everything that I'm wearing is either last season or was a clearance item.
