Who doesn't love a good polka dot?!

I was nervous about the Peplum not being a great silhouette on many women I didn't want to call attention to my midsection in a negative way.  But now that I know they don't look a hot mess on me I'm obsessed!  I'd love a longer sleeve but other than that I'm more than pleased...the fabric was actually even better than expected, not too thick or too thin!

With a pop of color on the lips I left the makeup simple.  I meant to wear my red shoes but couldn't get it together to get out the door in time that day so I had to slip on my go to Toms Wedges!  

Am I converting Peplum haters into Peplum lovers here?  I'd love to hear from you, feel free to comment below!

Put A Bird On It

The color of this top caught my eye in a sea of product images.  I used to skip over woven  button-front matter the size or cut I'd end up with gaping holes between buttons at the bust...not a cute look!  I think that's why I seek them out now, I'm always up for a challenge...and though it sucks to fall in love with a top not knowing if it will work out I'm elated when they do!

There's just something about a woven feels a bit more dressed up.  And how about my new bracelet from Kate Spade...obsessed!

Seriously Sexy

Sexy intimates aren't the easiest items to find as the sizes go up...often beyond a size Large when I saw this from Lane Bryant I was more than happy!  Then I realized they have a whole category for "Seriously Sexy" intimates...ummmm AMAZING!

Python Print Babydoll with G-string

Available Here

I have a few babydoll sets...can't say that I get any use out of the g-string as it's never flattering or comfortable...I know it's only supposed to be sexy and stay on for a hot second but I usually find a coordinating hipster that makes me feel more confidant.

At any rate I'm excited to see this category from Lane Bryant...with hopes of more to come!

Peplum Perfection

Sometimes you see an article of clothing and you just know it's for you...then comes the hoping that it will look as great on you as you imagine it should in your head!  I was worried that this top was going to highlight areas that I'd like to camouflage but I think it was a successful purchase!  

*Shopping tip...ASOS offers free shipping both ways...SCORE!!!

Dressing Around Your Accessories

I fell in love with the cactus on this necklace on a recent trip to Tucson Arizona.  I love cactus and Betsey I couldn't resist the purchase.  Then the challenge of working out how to showcase my new necklace without overpowering it somehow...
