Pretty in Peplum


My favorite shopping trips are the ones where I discover items I love when I wasn’t necessarily looking for them. When I am on the hunt for an item it’s so much more difficult to find what I’m looking for. Am I alone here? My quick tidbit of advice is to grab those fav finds as you come across them because they may not be there when you need them. This outfit came together with recent purchases when I wasn’t looking for any of the pieces. I first tried out peplum in this post and when I came across this more structured top I knew I wanted to try it. That same day I found these navy pants on the clearance rack at Macy’s and knew they’d look great with the top. Might I add that with coupons and sales combined, I purchased the pants for $20 and the top for $18. Not too shabby eh? I’m not one to have much patience or time for clearance racks, but once in a while it pays off.


Details: Kohl’s ELLE top, Macy’s INC pants, Macy’s necklace, Talbots earrings, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, Blair Ritchey mini lulu foldover,¬†Arturo Chang pumps



I wore Essie’s Bobbing for Baubles which will be a regular on my nails this season.


I found these beauties (earrings) on a trip to Talbots with my Mother. It pays to shop with your mom, you never know what you’ll find.


My Blair Ritchey clutch paired all too perfectly, I couldn’t leave it out.

I have to add that I was laughing with one of my best girlfriends at her baby shower as we talked about peplum this past weekend. She’s due in a little over a month and has been eager to try out some peplum. I was thinking back to my previous peplum post where I noted that it adds a waistline to any figure. I should continue that sentence by adding, “unless you are pregnant” ;) Soon enough my friend!!
