I'm also a huge sucker for peplum and ruffles. When a top combines both of those details, sold.
I absolutely love how the jeans have a snug fit past the knee (vs beginning to widen at the knee). I also find this cut to be much more flattering and totally makes your legs look longer (something that I definitely can use!).
The top easily dresses up a pair of jeans (which I wear nearly 99% of the time). I can totally see it paired with a fabulous pair of distressed jeans and then the flared jeans would look absolutely amazing with a fantastic sweatshirt!
Versatility is key when it comes to the pieces that are in my closet and these two newest additions are making this mama super happy!
