Personal Style: Mint Peplum

mint peplum 2 I used to shop almost exclusively at Express a few years ago, but then stopped going there all together for no really good reason. Well, while at the mall last week, I wandered back into Express just to see what kind of goodies I could find, and am I happy that I did!

I found this fantastic mint peplum top and it was on clearance! Haayyyy! Nothing like a great deal to make me a happy girl. I've been wanting a mint peplum for a while since I saw one on Jessica (check out one of her posts HERE) and when I went to purchase the exact one from Modcloth, they were sold out of my size. Good things do come to those who wait!

I then added touches of gold with my jewelry and accessories to complete the entire look. I used to only exclusively wear silver, but now I can't get enough of gold! Plus, it looks great with a summer tan. :)
