What I Wore: Peplum Pretty


This weekend was all about celebrations for me. 
I spent a lot of time with my parents since they are moving three hours north to Central California to be closer to my sister, bro in law, nephew and soon to be niece TODAY. I respect their decision and reasons for moving but I am sad because I have always had them within a hour of me. I have also had them living with me for the last few months as we did the remodel on my house. It was a really cool and challenging experience to live with my parents after so many years. I feel blessed to see how much they have grown as husband and wife, parents and people. I am so lucky to have them as an example in my life! I also got to celebrate a super close friend, who is pretty much like another little sister to me, at her bridal shower. Celebrating LOVE always renews my faith in the opposite sex. ;)

I wore this outfit to the Bridal Shower. The theme was Black and White and we were asked to wear one or both of the shades. I bought this top a few weeks ago and I was excited to finally try the peplum trend. I have to admit I didn't think I could wear it. I am short waisted and have a pretty long torso so I have a hard time with tops that have a waist line in it. The trick was finding a top with a longer peplum so that it wasn't too short on me. I pulled out my trusty Old Navy Rockstar's BUT I had to wear a belt, and not just wear the belt but use the FIFTH hole. I used to have to use the FIRST hole on all of my belts! SO that was kind of exciting. Since I was wearing all black I thought that these heels would be a pretty pop. I loved this outfit.

  8. Love that you went with all black!! You look so fabulous and this peplum top looks perfect on you. I have yet to try it (not sure how it will look) but I definitely think I need to get at least one top. I definitely agree that a longer peplum works great. You're looking so good lady!!
