The Perfect Peplum

So last night, I had some girlfriends over and we did a Stella & Dot Trunk Show, drank some wine and ate some food.  Stella & Dot is a quality brand with the cutest jewelry and other accessories. I’m finding that as I get older, I can’t get away with buying cheap jewelry unless it’s for a costume. I hate it when I find a piece of jewelry that I’m excited about and it either breaks, turns my hand/neck/ears green, parts of it fall off, or whole thing tarnishes. I’ve been disappointed too many times, people! Other brands I’m loving are BaubleBarKendra Scott, and Slate. I tend to gravitate towards jewelry that I can pair with lots of outfits but I love a good statement piece- hence the one I’m wearing for you now!


First though, I wanna talk about this peplum top. It’s from Minash Boutique, by a brand called After Market. If you’re local to Columbus (or really even not local), you HAVE to check out Minash. Seriously, go now. The mother-daughter owned shop always stocks the cutest clothing & accessories and this peplum is no exception. The bottom of the peplum hits perfectly where I want it and it’s made from incredibly soft cotton. I styled it here a little simpler but just recently I wore it into my office with olive chino’s and a blazer so it’s definitely versatile! One thing about a peplum is that on a hanger, it doesn’t always present well. The first time I saw one, I remember thinking, “that bottom half is way too wide, it’ll never look right!” Well, that wasn’t the case. A peplum is SO forgiving and where it gathers on the top can give you the appearance of a smaller waist. Because this peplum is one solid color, I wanted to dress it up with fun accessories like the BaubleBar Courtney Bib Necklace and monogrammed clutch from Marley Lilly. The bib necklace is quite heavy so I wouldn’t recommend wearing it for a long day but it amplifies an outfit so much, it’s worth it’s weight. I picked up my lace-up flats from TJ Maxx last year when they were on clearance for $15- can’t pass up a deal right?! The ear crawlers I styled are from another Rocksbox and the double wrap bracelet is from Stella & Dot and goes with pretty much everything!

I’d love to hear what accessories you’d pair with this white peplum!
