collared // peplum



Peplum: J. Crew (love this floral peplum top too); Collared shirt: J. Crew (similar style here); Jeans: c/o Paige; Shoes: Zara; Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Forever 21 rhinestone collar necklace, Michael Kors watch; T-Rex with flamingo friends c/o Google
Special thanks to Paulette for snapping my photos!

While I sift through the many photos from Miami Swim Fashion Week, please enjoy this more casual office look, in which I took two of my current closet staples (a printed peplum top and a cotton twill collared shirt) and layered them. I know, not exactly rocket science over here but hey, I was pretty pleased with the outcome!

And something tells me my new friend behind me here liked it, too!

  13. I've been thinking about rocking the peplum top with a collar shirt underneath it. I'm glad to see someone doing it so that it can give me a vision of what it can look like. LOVE that bag.

  27. Every time I see that J.Crew peplum, I regret not picking it up. It looks great on you!

    The flamingo chillin' in the mouth of the T-rex is one of the best things I've seen in a while. =)
