Sequins and Sea Breezes: Peplum Perfection

Peplum Perfection

12/09/2014

 
Happy Tuesday loves! Is anyone else as happy as I am that peplum is still a popular trend? It's so fun and figure flattering, not to mention sexy and elegant! When I saw this top I immediately fell in love with the pleated bottom and lace top and I knew I had to have it. With the holidays right around the corner I knew it'd get a lot of wear at all of the holiday parties and seriously, you can't beat the price! So far I've already worn it with a simple black blazer and a leather jacket and skirt for a night out, it is so versatile!


For this look I decided to edge it up a little with these coated skinny jeans but since it was in the 70's out I decided to skip the blazer or jacket. Note to self, coated denim is not the best in warmer temperatures! I topped off my look with these amazing Michael Kors heels I scored at Ross last year (sadly they're super uncomfortable but if you watch Anger Management, like Patrick said "you know they're expensive if they're uncomfortable!") and a fun gold glitter clutch for a bit of sparkle!

  4. The coated denim is soooo good- but doesn't breathe, you're right! Good thought to skip the jacket. :)

  10. Cute! I can't believe that top is from Target. Can you believe I have yet to wear a peplum top? I have trouble finding one that's long enough to be flattering on my long torso. I'll have to try this one!

  11. Oh I am looooving this outfit! Those shoes are so fun, too bad they are uncomfortable :( I admit it, I haven't really loved peplum on me, I prefer my tops a little longer and peplum just isn't long BUT you better believe I have multiple peplum tops for Mia. I'm not even kidding when I say I live vicariously through her wardrobe sometimes, HA!!

  12. Adorable top! Looks perfect on you! I am completely jealous that you are still able to bare your arms and it's December while I'm in sweaters, scarves, coats, hats, etc. Not sure why I'm still living in Illinois!

  17. I own quite a few peplums and love how they transform my shape to look more curvey. Yours is a more subtle peplum but super cute and I love the purse!
