how to wear a peplum top, what is peplum


TOP: H&M (similar) | JEANS: Current/Elliott | SHOES: ZARA (similar) | SUNNIES: street vendor on Canal St (similar) | BRACELETS & EARRINGS: Forever 21 (similar) | WATCH: Target | NECKLACE: ZARA (similar)


When I saw this truck stop, I knew it would be the perfect back drop for this outfit. But it was so loud. When Shawntel snapped my pictures I could barely hear her. But it’s funny. Sometimes you see someone’s outfit and without saying a word, you know exactly what they’re saying.


I got the amazing opportunity to speak to 100+ students of Delta Sigma Theta at Valdosta State University for the Total Women’s Tea where I spoke on “Finding Your VOICE.” I feel like as a young adult – person, even – it’s the single hardest thing to do. I feel like even when you find your voice you have to be brave enough to listen to it. The young ladies were so sweet and receptive and I had a blast chatting with each of them.
