This is the last in a series from, showcasing the Make a Statement Collection. There was sun out this afternoon, as this winter was strange in Charlotte, a few days you see people bundled in winter coats, then the shorts and t-shirts come out. I decided to wear a cream colored sweater I got from my favorite place to shop, Ann Taylor. No kidding, I am known on a first name basis there.This peplum sweater I had eyed for awhile, and I also liked the fact that it was light, which we need more than heavy, substantial cable knits in the Queen City. I paired it up with my camel skirt, and in some pics, another tan/cognac leather jacket. I added a pop of color with sneaking some colors of spring in: mint, pale pink, tan in a scarf I liked, as well as a brooch and pearls to make it more lady-like. The tortoise glasses also added a bit of sparkle and bling to the outfit as little crystals shined in the sun.

I love peplum, but some I have tried on seem to be up a little high, and I have a long torso as well, I was happy when the peplum worked for me, and the placement was just right.

This style is known as the Josephine in Tort , and can be found here, on

Glasses:,Ann Taylor Peplum sweater(similar)skirt ( older)  boots( dansko) similar necklace and scarf Francesca’s boutique, earrings: Jewel Box.

Have a lovely day, and spring is around the corner, but Friday is only supposed to be 55 here!

    Jess, I think the peplum cut is ideal for your figure.
    I cannot decide on my favourite pair of glasses, I really love all you have shown, they all perfectly match your style.
    Looking beautiful as always, dear!

      Thank You hon, I like the peplum cut, sometimes because I am tall and long waisted, the peplum line is too high, but this is nice. Just a little hint; I may wear another new peplum top in the NEAR future. :-)Thank you on the glasses. I like these as well. I think my personality goes with the cat eyes. I am going to get a prescription pair like the ones I showed. Thanks again, Annette!!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting Tammy. I really liked the boots and the color of them. They are Dansko from about 3 seasons ago. I don’t usually buy dansko, but this was one boot that had my attention. Thank you for your compliment.

      Thanks Elle, I have to stop by your site, make sure I follow you. I haven’t had the best health week, but PT tomorrow. Thank you for the lovely compliments. I do most of my shopping of Ann Taylor online, but sometimes go in to see the staff too.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a peplum sweater but I like it! Such a feminine look to it. And those BOOTS! Wow I’m loving the lace front and rich color of them. So pretty!

      Hi there. Yes, I am a huge fan of Ann Taylor. It was from this season, but sold out. There is some light lace detailing on the front of the sweater. The boots I got for a steal, but they are so comfortable and cool looking. Thanks God I don’t have to lace them up, there is a zipper on the side. Stop by again. 🙂

      Thank you. I will be happy to check yours out as well. I love to see how others style themselves as well. I appreciate the compliment. The boots are from Dansko, whose shoes I don’t buy from, as they usually have a heel, and they aren’t always my style, but I saw these and they were so different I liked the color and the lace ups. THank you!

    Thank you Pam. I remember thinking when I was alot younger that pearls were for old ladies! Then I grew up and realized that any lady of fashion wore pearls, that they were elegant. I liked the gold and abalone flowers on them. Thank you! I would like to see what readers you have, i bet they look sharp!
