Swept Away

Hello! This lace, peplum top has been on repeat in my outfits throughout the past several weeks. A few weeks back, I redeemed 2400 of my "chic points" on Chictopia for this beauty of a shirt. This shirt can be found on DIVA NY here for $28. Peplum tops have been trending for a while now and every time that I saw someone wearing one, I immediately wished that their peplum top was in my closet. However, I am extremely thrifty (*ahem* cheap) and did not want to dish over $20 for a trendy piece. So up until a few weeks ago, I went without the peplum trend in my wardrobe. How I did so, I have absolutely no idea because when I say that this top has been on repeat, I really mean that it has been on repeat. I find myself constantly grabbing for it when putting my outfits together.

Practically everything about this top impresses me. The quality is superb, the fit is flawless and the versatility of the top is unbelievable. I love the way that it defines and draws attention to my waist. For the look featured above, I chose to draw even more attention to my waist by donning a leopard print belt over the peplum top. Keeping with the neutral color combination, I slipped into one of my favorite skirts- a cream-colored, vintage treasure. I swear, I will never tire of this skirt. The mid-calf length and movement of the skirt/the way that my skirt is swept away by the breeze is all just charming.

My heeled sandals were also a neutral tan color. The heel on these sandals makes me feel so glamorous! To be honest, they kind of make me feel like I am at fashion week when really I'm just living life in the suburbs. And that is the best feeling in the world. It is my goal to attend several shows during fashion week while attending school at Philadelphia University next year and I absolutely cannot wait!

I hope that you guys have a terrific weekend!
