YAY!  I'm FINALLY featuring a cute peplum skirt that flatters my figure. I've always adored the trend.  In fact, I've been on the lookout for quite some time now. When I bought an adorable red skirt from H&M a couple months ago, I thought my search had finally come to an end, but to my dismay, the piece didn't fit properly.  

Why did I buy it in the first place?  That's a good question.  I never buy clothing without trying it on, but on that day (for some bizarre reason) I assumed that it would fit. Now it's just chillin' in my closet because I was an idiot who took the tag off before trying it on. Lesson learned.  

How are you guys incorporating bold prints into your everyday looks?

  5. Love the photos Kimberly! I am the exact same way.. I hardly ever try on clothes! Like rarely and I just buy and bring them home and sometimes take the tags off then regret it! Big lesson learned. haha..

  21. Wow, that peplum looks amazing on you! And that floral pattern is fabulous! I sometimes do that too - like I bought a belt and didn't try it on, and of course I took the tag off and its too big! xo

  26. The peplum definitely gives you curves - not that you didn't have any before. But it looks good on you.
