Teal Peplum & Burgundy

February 27, 2012

Burgundy and Teal

Ever since Zara e-store opened here in the US, my shopping budget has gone over the roof. I go there just to browse at their new additions but each time I always end up buying something. I can’t help it, they have gorgeous pieces! I recently picked up this teal lace peplum top from a recent visit. Paired with it with a burgundy forever 21 skirt to give the illusion of a dress. I love how this two colors go together. Someone should make a peplum dress already in these colors, if it hasn’t been done already.

So, how was your weekend? Mine was filled with books, laundry detergent and cleaning agents. The only upside is that the weather was really beautiful. Have a great work week everybody!
