Layered Peplum



When I saw my blogger friend, The Stylish Housewife, wearing this peplum top (here), I went a little crazy and left a more-serious-than-sarcastic comment about wanting it for myself.  So Danielle from Le Lapin D'or, being the sweet girl that she is, took pity on me thought it would be fun to send me one, so you could see two different ways to style the same top!  Jenn lives in California, where they are experiencing a massive heat wave...but here in NY, things have cooled down quite a bit.  As much as it killed me to cover up the sequin shoulder detailing, I had to put a blazer on so I wouldn't freeze when heading outdoors.  I actually love the layered look it creates with the peplum peeking out - and because of the creamy ivory color, I can see it becoming a great basic piece to wear under my coats & jackets this fall.





What I'm wearing:
Monteau Los Angeles top c/o Le Lapin D'or (here; runs small so size up - for reference, Jenn & I are both wearing mediums), Forever 21 trousers (last seen heresimilar), Mossimo blazer (here; runs extremely small - I went up 2 full sizes), Guess pumps (on sale here), Target earrings (similar), Forever 21 necklace, Zara bag (here), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar)

This looks beautiful on you and I actually really love the asymmetry. I'm having a peplum moment, as well. I've had three blog posts out of ten feature different peplum tops. Whoopsie.

Gorgeous! Love that necklace!!

Mz Savvy Style said...

Love the way you styled the top! I've yet to embrace the peplum trend ~ but both you & Jenn do it well! (Oh, and that bag is awesome! ~ it was one of your NYFW finds, right?)

Lace And Tulle said...

love your pants!!!

Miss Leigh said...

I really, really love that bag! And those silver pumps for daytime? GLAM!

Finance Girl said...

your top is gorgeous!

Catherine said...

I actually love the blazer with the peplum! I think this is one of those trends that's going to be gone quickly, so this is a great example of how you can make it classic - plus you have such interesting details in the necklace and shoes. Gorgeous!

Mary said...

LOVE the bag looks great styled with the tailored top and loose pants!!

Tina said...

Gotta tell you. I have been LOVING the neutral lips you have been rocking lately. It changes your face in a way the reds don't. I LOVE IT!

Terry S said...

Love, LOVE this look. I also agree with you. I love the peek-a-boo look the peplum gives when paired with the blazer.

And the shoes. Metallic: <333

I love the top but not the sequins..I would totally buy it if it was just all white

Love it! Would you wear the metallic shoes to work? I work in NorCal and have no idea what is acceptable anymore. If it's not vegan friendly, my coworkers don't wear it.

Kimberly said...

Yes, you could definitely wear them to work! Mine are patent leather, but here's a pair under $50 that is a great vegan option:

Kimberly said...

Hi Lauren,

I normally wear a 4 in blazers, but had to get this one in an 8! The 6 fit everywhere except the shoulders (mine are really broad), so I would recommend going up at least one size and definitely 2 sizes if you're planning on wearing anything substantial underneath it. Hope that helps! :)
