I just love peplum tops. I don’t care if they go out of style….I’m still wearing them. If only for the way they define your waist and cover any little extra tummy you may have. If peplum could talk it would say, “it’s ok that you ate that extra cupcake today…you’ve got me to cover you up and you look great”!
Today’s post was actually taken a couple of weeks ago but never posted as I was too busy to blog. Sad…yeah…I know… Thankfully, I was able to work on blogging this week and post it before it became obsolete. I guess this is a Throwback Thursday post without actually being one…but I digress.
Back to peplums and their perfection. Another wonderful and important peplum trait is that they’re very versatile. I’ve worn this particular top with jeans, skirts and shorts.
It’s a wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down.
Today’s look was inspired by the Chloe + Isabel necklace I’m wearing in the pictures. Get it here !
This necklace is unique and so beautiful. It reminds me of Art Deco with an Egyptian twist. I like to buy items that are essentially conversation starters.
This necklace definitely fit that description! I had lots of people ask me about it and want to have a closer look.
A friend of mine posted a saying on her Facebook account recently…it’s from a book called Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell….
This is how I feel about my outfits and myself in general. My attire is a direct expression of me. How I feel, what I represent, who I am …at least for that moment…is pushed out of my head and onto my body.
This necklace was one of those ways I could funnel myself into one wearable piece.
Hope everyone’s having a great Thursday…hang in there…Friday is right around the corner!

Lovely! And the bag is really something. I also like what you wrote about expressing yourself through your outfits. Some of us simply need to do that sometimes.
Thanks so much! My outfits really are my artform; I work behind a desk all day in a job that isn’t very creative…I find that expressing myself thru clothing is an outlet for me that is much needed! xx..Cortneybre…
Yes, life is bland enough as it is. We all need various kinds of art to make life bearable. Keep up the good work!
Have a nice weekend!
