Colorblock Peplum

by - Friday, May 09, 2014

Peplum is a trend I've stayed away from until recently. While everyone else raved about its figure-flattering-ness (a word I just made up), I didn't think my hips need the extra attention peplum brings. Well, all it takes is the perfect top for me to do a complete 180. I love, love the soft colors and drapey-ness of this tee.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. My issue with peplum (at least in tops) is where the seam (where the peplum is attached) hits me. I know they're supposed to hit at your natural waist-ish, but I can't stand having the seam there. I always feel like it needs to be lower, closer to my hips. I love peplum on skirts and dresses though because the seam is lower.

    1. Interesting! I can't say I've noticed that peplum on skirts and dresses hit lower on me (haven't tried on many), but now I'll be on the lookout for that in the future.

  2. I was so against it until I tried one a well fitted one and love it! The colors on this are perfect for spring. :)

  3. Your clutch is gorgeous!

  4. Hey, I love this blouse as well since I have it too. It was a surprise purchase for me as well as I wasn't a peplum-convert until now (or maybe this blouse only). Maybe you can do another feature showcasing the back of the blouse. The colorblock detail on the back is another reason why I love this blouse so much.

    1. Definitely! The purple button-up back is super cute. *Makes mental note to take a back photo in the future*

  5. That clutch is clutch!
