How I Wore: Poppy Red Peplum

As I blogged about earlier this month, I am in love with red. I jumped at the chance to wear this top out as soon as I could.
Top: Target (exact, coveting this one, and +size)
Boots: Candies via Kohls (similar, similar)
Jeans: Old Navy Rockstar (similar)
Necklace: Rue 21 (not online check stores)
Bracelets: Alex and Ani
Nail polish: SH @ home gel in Pat on the Black

I'm obsessed with peplum tops because they flatter a fuller figure like my own. I like that they are fitted on top and flare at just the right spot to cover my more...ahem... rounder troublesome areas. It makes the perfect curve when worn with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. 

The other obsession I have with this OOTD is that necklace!!
Out of the park! It was so unique that I knew I had to have it when I laid eyes on it. I have been dying to find a top that needed a little jazzing and thought these items went very well together. 
 I received so many compliments I can't wait to wear it again & again!

What is your favorite item in your closet right now??
Tell me about it in the comments and leave me links to your blogs. 
I love to follow!! 


  1. I agree! Peplum is great... assuming it's long enough. I've tried on a few that were hilarious because of how short they were and I just looked like one giant chest. Those were definitely a no-go.


    1. HaHa! You're so right, a lot of peplum is trial and error, I was definitely lucky with this one.

  2. Ok, I LOVE the necklace, it is absolutely adorable.
