Bohème in Bordeaux

Yeah so the title of this post is a little misleading.  I'm not in Bordeaux, France; I'm right here in the bluegrass. I meant "in Bordeaux" as in the color of that magnificent red wine that is as bold as it's name.  But you don't have to travel to France to appreciate a little Bordeaux with this little top. 

This fall weather has really thrown me for a loop this year.  Typically by November I've already pulled out the cozy sweaters, furry vests, and over the knee boots, but it was 80 DEGREES this weekend!  Trust me, I'm not complaining because I love warm weather but it is especially tricky to look fall appropriate when it's blazin' hot.  

I found the perfect solution to this dilemma.  This little leather peplum top allows you to bear your arms while adding just the right amount of fall flair (don't worry yogis, it is vegan leather).  Although leather can be worn year round it reminds me of fall and winter because it tends to be a little heavy for the summertime heat.  This top gives you the look of leather while keeping you cool.  Also, the peplum hem is universally flattering and creates that hourglass shape for a little extra Va Va Voom!  

The BEST part about this top is it's versatility.  Go a little boho by adding a hat (I know I wore it in the last post but it is really a staple in my closet this year), fringe purse (bottom picture), and a wrap leather choker.  You can go corporette chic and wear this top to work with slim cut editor pants and closed toe heel.  Or even dress it up for a romantic dinner by pairing it with a knee length skirt and adding a little sparkle to your neckline.  But however you wear it, it will have everyone around you craving a glass of red wine... in fact, I'm going to go get one right now.  Enjoy, Bendy Babes!
