Ruffled in Cream

I love finding pieces in my wardrobe that I can pair together to create the effect of something I've really been wanting.  I absolutely fell in love with this sweater and was desperately trying to find something similar for less.  Until one day, I was playing around in my closet and realized that I could simply layer a peplum top (last seen here) under a cropped knit (previously worn here & here) to achieve the same look.  I added a slim belt at the waist to give it further definition and make the ruffle even more pronounced.  It's a great way to reuse pieces I already own instead of buying something new!

As a side note, I wanted to thank everyone for all the sweet comments & encouraging emails I received in response to yesterday's post.  I am overwhelmed by your support & kindness, but I'm starting to realize that my readers are some of the most compassionate & uplifting women on the planet.  My heart is swelling with gratitude and I just want you to know how much I appreciate and am thankful for each one of you.

What I'm wearing:
Zara Sweater (under $16!), H&M peplum top (similar here or here), Ann Taylor belt (similar here or here),
