weekday wardrobe: black and slate blue (with a side of crazy)
Yes, I live in Texas. Yes, we experience summers with record-breaking, triple-digit heat. And yes, I wore a faux leather peplum top in the middle of August, despite the aforementioned heat. (I told you this outfit came with a side of crazy.) But surprisingly, it wasn't bad. Maybe because it's sleeveless. Bottom line is, I saw, I bought, I wore. I had been eyeing this for a bit and finally bought during a 25% off sale (and the final cost could still be considered a "splurge" for me). I love it and I plan to layer it and wear it during the cooler months. Oh, who am I kidding? The only cold month we have is January--but trust me, this will definitely get worn. A lot.
