Peplum Layers

In todays look, I am playing with volume and textures. I kept the colors soft with a pinch of black to streamline the outfit. I really like the floral lace texture of this skirt and the material is a nice and thick making it seem very expensive, but it is on sale! :) 

I hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July holiday. Mochi, my dog hates the beginning of July because he is petrified of fireworks. Last year I recall him hiding under tables and shaking violently from the booming firework noises. So this year I'm going to stay home and comfort him because I know he will be really scared.
