Plaid Peplum

How was your Christmas? We visited my parents out in La Quinta and it was just lovely. We spent the whole morning stretching out our present-opening while sipping coffee and mimosas and eating runny eggs on biscuits. Jack quickly caught on to the fact that he was getting more than just one gift, and it was fun to see him open each one with wide eyes and a big smile. His favorites? A Bruder trash truck and a large plastic cement truck (surprise, surprise).

After all the excitement, Jack was too wired to nap so we took out the golf carts and cruised around looking for big horn sheep. And of course I couldn’t resist wearing my brand new plaid peplum I opened that morning. It’s from Madewell (where else?!) and admittedly more colorful than my usual picks, but the red is deep and muted and I love it so much. The fabric is super soft and comfortable, and I basically didn’t want to take it off until the last moment of the day.

I paired it with my new favorite 10″ high rise jeans and an old favorite leather-trim cardigan that I’ve had for probably 4 years. I linked to some different-but-similar options below if you’re in the market for something like that!

    I love the peplum top – for reference (since I don’t have a Madewell nearby and need to order online) what size are you wearing? Does it run true to size?

      Yes, it’s true to size!
