What I Wore: Polka Dot Peplum Top

Last weekend my husband and I headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party.  It was a rainy and gloomy evening so I wanted to brighten the mood with a fun outfit.  What could be more fun than a polka dot peplum top and red skinny jeans?  I must admit that I am very self conscious about by thighs and it takes courage for me to wear anything other than dark pants.  These James jeans are remarkably comfortable and somewhat slimming.  A trick I use to distract from my bottom half is to really dress up my top half.  The peplum top gives the elusion of a smaller waist and the statement necklace draws the eye up towards my face.  My mother gave me this cute little Talbots clutch a while ago and I loved how the stripes mixed well with the polka dots.  Lastly, a nice stiletto heel makes the legs appear longer and me appear taller!  I hope these little tips can help you when piecing an outfit together.

What I Wore: Camo + Pink

I want to know who turned off the summer weather switch in Atlanta and demand to know when they are going to turn it back on!!!  It only reached a high of 63 degrees on Friday which put a wrench in my cute summer outfit ideas.  You can’t go wrong with light layering so I paired a soft camo tee with a blazer and boyfriend jeans.  I’ve always loved the combination of camouflage and pink.  It’s weird, I know, but I love the thought of pairing such a feminine color with a pattern associated with ultimate masculinity.

I just love this Forever 21 necklace.  It looks a lot more expensive than it is and adds great sparkle to any outfit.

Here I am spotted in front of Chick-a-Biddy.  This is a restaurant chain that just made it’s way to Atlanta.  I had heard good things about it and was eager to try it out.  I glanced at the menu ahead of time and thought I was going to go with the black bean quinoa burger.  I had a change of heart when I arrived and the savory smell of chicken tickled my nose.  I ended up with the chicken tenders served with a wasabi-honey dipping sauce and a watermelon-feta-mint side salad.  Let’s just say I was not disappointed!
