Happy FriYay!  I'm so excited for this weekend because we are headed to Cape Cod for a little family get away.  We normally make it to the Cape every summer, however, last year we had to cancel our plans do to a little insect infestation.  (If you have been following me, you may remember that the twins, somehow, managed to get head lice).  Since we weren't able to get to the Cape last year, it makes our trip this year more exciting!

Now about my look! I have been obsessed with peplum tops, but hadn't yet added one to my wardrobe because I could never find one that fits well.  Being tall, and well endowed, they always fall too short, giving an awkward, crop top feel.  However, when I saw this one from Zaful, I decided to give it a try, and I'm so happy that I did!  I love the boxy fit, the length is perfect, and I'm obsessed with the color.  It is also available green, white and burgundy (which would be perfect for the fall).  Although I have been wearing this peplum tee non-stop with denim shorts and sandals, I decided to show you an easy way to dress it up, making it perfect for grabbing drinks withe the girls (or a family dinner when you want to feel more put together).  I paired it with a skinny jean to balance out the boxiness of the tee, then finished my look with a statement necklace and heels, which gave the tee a dressier feel.  It's an easy, comfy, yet stylish look.
