peplum my friend

top: american eagle outfitters (recent) // jeans & purse: joe fresh // heels: zara // necklace & bracelet: h&m // sunglasses: ray-ban 

I have a confession to make: I cannot get enough of peplum. 
I think I gravitate towards the shape because it can easily make any outfit appear more feminine and put together. I found this one recently at AE on sale ($19.99) and I love the colour since it shows a bit of my recent tan. Also, just out of pure curiosity  has anyone experienced some pretty intense pain breaking in these Zara heels? I love them but oh boy do they hurt! 

I cannot wait to watch the Great Gatsby tonight.. has anyone else seen it? Leo still makes me swwwwooon!


  1. Yellow looks gorgeous on love love that top!

  2. That top is stunning, I love yellow.
    You look great!


  3. You are the cutest!!

    I saw gatsby and I have to say I was a little underwhelmed :(. It was missing that "edge" that baz luhrmann films have. It was still good though! Just not what I expected. I kinda feel like seeing it agan because I can't decide where I stand on it. It was pretty true to the book though!

  4. very nice outfit! peplum top always looks so flattering
    you have a very beautiful blog, just found it:)

  5. Yellow is a great color on you! You look stunning in this peplum top! Enjoy the movie, let me know how you like (or dislike) it!

  6. love the color of your peplum top. I agree with the effect it has on outfits and on the female silhouette. It's feminine and sweet!

    I saw The Great Gatsby (in 2D...since I don't do well with 3D films). I personally loved seeing it. Aside from the beautiful costumes and jewelry (serious DROOL) I felt it stayed close to the theme and imagery of the book itself. Enjoyed that a lot since so many films don't necessarily follow that. Hope you like it!!
