I've made a lot of things for the blog over the last two and a half years. Some of them I like or wear for a short time, and some become wardrobe staples. Whenever I find myself wearing a piece I made over and over again I like to take a minute and show you all that I actually do wear the things I make, and how I wear them.
Today, I'm showing you my most recent remix of my knock off of Anthropologie's peplum tank:
I made this simple tank last summer, and it got a lot of use almost immediately. It seems really basic, and it is. It's a basic with a little bit of detail that makes it special, and because of that I've found myself continuing to use it all fall/winter and into the spring. It's a great layering piece! Here's what I wore it with during that early not-quite-warm-yet spring weather.
I wore it with my red pants (can I just say how much I love red pants?), a floral cardigan and nude wedges. To cut the overall sweetness of the ruffles and floral I topped it with my black leather biker jacket.
wedges: Steve Madden// pants: Gap// peplum tank: DIY// cardigan: unknown, ancient!// jacket: thrifted (no tag)// sunglasses: Dollar Store// Purse: B. Makowsky// Earrings: DIY// Necklace: gifted.
There you go! A quick post to show off wearing one of my all time favorite DIY projects! If you want to see some other ways I remixed my favorite projects, you can check out my altered vintage Gap dress, and my perfect slouchy tee. See you again soon!
