The weather was practically begging for an outfit post yesterday. I've been terrible about keeping these up, I'm such a wimp about taking pictures outside. I hate the cold! I don't know how other bloggers do it, their secret must be really, really cool coats. Now, I'm late to the party on this trend, but let's talk about peplum. Are you opposed? In favor?
This is the first time I've worn peplum so you could say I'm pretty late to this party. As I see it, we've got the pros: it's flattering for curvy figures, it's retro and often paired with other adorably vintage-inspired details, and it makes an otherwise basic t-shirt look super classy. The biggest con, for me personally, is the layering element. I wear cardigans and jackets year round and peplum doesn't particularly lend itself to serving as the base layer. I've had this top for months, but could only bring myself to wear it in 75° summertime weather. It looked awkwardly bumpy beneath any of my beloved knits before.

I'm willing to keep an open mind about peplum because I've been lusting after this dress for awhile. Holly, who blogs at The Full Figured Chest, recommended it on Hourglassy and I've been obsessed with it ever since.
What's your take on peplum?
Also, how the heck do you wear a sweater with it?! -- And, if you live in a warm climate: BOO! HISS! I can't even tell you how jealous I am. ;)
