Peplum brings All the Feels

Peplums, I hope you never go out of style. I really wasn’t a huge fan when you circled back into trend few years ago- but now I’m in love with your flounce. Give me a sleeveless version of you, and it brings all the feels.

There’s just something about a sleeveless peplum top that makes me feel confident and ready to take on whatever the day brings! Peplum tops provide some body definition without being too tight. Seriously, this is one of the best silhouettes to hide that last bit of baby weight I’m trying to shake! Fun fact- I also wore this top a lot early in my pregnancy until I was ready to tell everyone I was expecting.

Pairing an olive peplum blouse with my favorite black skinny pants and a comfortable low wedge sandal makes a great look for the office. I love the v neck and zipper on the back on this top! I threw on a leather double wrap cuff, leather detailed collar necklace and gold studs to complete my look.

My blouse is a few years old from Wet Seal- which I believe is no longer in business. However I’ve rounded up a few that are around the same price point (under $30). This off-the-shoulder peplum top is super cute- not really work wear, but would be great for the weekend! This one shoulder peplum sweater is also super adorable; would be great paired with some skinny dress pants for early fall! For a version that is work appropriate, this lace one is so sweet; I really like it in blush. For a more casual look, I really love both the tank and long sleeve versions of this relaxed peplum-hem. I own both of these- I’d recommend sizing up to achieve the look on the model. (See a post about them here) And while I was browsing to link up for you babes, I stumbled across a chambray version that would be so great for fall! I’d pair it with some olive skinnies or black jeans!

3 Shoulder Show Looks for the Office

It’s July (my birthday month, woo!), and the year of the shoulder show game is STILL strong. What I’m loving the most about this trend is it’s flirting with all the different styles out there. Workout gear, casual, athleisure, formal, swimwear and even professional looks! I see so many adorable cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops that I would love to purchase but my reality is 5 out of 7 days a week my outfits adhere to my company’s dress code policy making some options not office friendly. I was really excited when I came across a few off […]

Blush Denim

I can barely contain my happy in these photos. I’d like to say it’s because I’ve found a great pair of blush denim skinnies. I mean seriously these are amazing for my post-baby bod. They are silky, they pull on, they give squish support and iron so easy. A busy Mom dream for color denim right here! They come in red, black and olive too! I’m also loving how this breezy spring white sweater and of course, dem mules paired for a professional look last week. The real reason for all the happy is all that fresh wood I’m standing on. […]

Back to the Grind

Today is my first day back in the office, eek! On some levels it feels like the past twelve weeks flew by and isn’t exactly long enough time with my new babe. Thankfully I’m only working part time over the next few months which means lots more days full of baby snuggles. Jumping on the Blush Crush craze I paired my favorite black pull on pants with a soft blush top and a white blazer for my first day back to work. I dug out these super old blush snake skin heels too. Truth be told I’m a little nervous to […]
