A Peplum Dream…

Hi Loves! I hope your week has been going well so far! I’m so excited because today is my Friday. I’m going to Atlanta to visit my best friend and I know we are going to have an amazing time! ๐Ÿ™‚
On to the look, I have been drooling over the peplum trend and I’ve seen so many looks on other blogs, Instagram, and in magazines. So when Sugarlips reached out to me to select an item from their amazing store, I was so excited to see this cobalt Peplum beauty on their website. This top is very well made and has beautiful detailing. I especially loved the front pleating and the slit opening in the back. I rarely wear heels and get all dressed up on this blog, but this top called for a little jazziness, don’t ya think? 

I mean look at this detailing in the back! Make sure and check out Sugarlips for  more gorgeous pieces!
Style Guide:  Try wearing a peplum top with a fitted skirt, it will highlight your curves and slenderize your figure at the same time.
It’s Wednesday so I’ll be sharing my style with The Pleated Poppy, Rolled Up Pretty,  and  Transatlantic Blonde!!

The Look: | Peplum Top: c/o Sugarlips | Skirt: Target | Shoes: DSW | Clutch: Vintage | Sunnies: H&M | Necklace: Forever 21 |
Remember all my hints about something I’ve been working on in my past posts?? Well I’m working on a FALL LOOKBOOK for you guys!  And above is a sneak peek of one of the looks. I hope you’re excited to see what I’ve come up with! I can’t wait to show you all the looks and I figured since I love Fall fashion so much, this would be a fun way to usher it inl! ๐Ÿ™‚
Have an amazing day!

    Great look! Love the bright cobalt with the stripes. Is the Target skirt recent? I have been searching for a cute striped skirt, but all the ones I have found are way too short and tight. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I came here through your comment on one of someone's EBEW post. I haven't even seen your EBEW outfit but this one is too, too cut. Love the peplum.
