Happy Friday loves,

Today's look is perfect for a night out, it's edgy, yet feminine at the same time. As you know, I love combining different styles to create an awesome dynamic, super fun! I initially wanted to wear this top with a pair of white pants, but it's just way too hot for that, so I decided to pair it with a white (faux) leather skirt instead. I guess I've been really diggin' leather skirts this summer, haha! What helps to enhance the edgy vibe of the look is not only that the shirt has a black base, but that I didn't tuck it in, leaving just the peplum folds of the skirt peaking through. This is a great way to help camouflage a larger midsection and hips, since the top simply glides over both, making it flattering for every shape. The peplum detail will help to create some bottom width and the illusion of curves to the apple, inverted triangle, & rectangular shaped ladies. This will also help elongate the torso, a great strategy if you want to balance out your longer legs with your shorter torso ;)

I wanted to quickly mention how thankful I am for all of you who take the time to read and visit my blog, leaving supportive and inspiring comments. I'm truly grateful and just know that you're all like precious stones and jewels. Even though there are many, each is different and unique in it's cut, color, and design; no two are the same, as with all of you. You are all so beautiful and unique and have so much to offer, so always remember that; there is no one like YOU! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have an awesome weekend!
