Bejeweled Peplum



When getting dressed up for girls night or date night, I usually gravitate towards skirts & dresses, but lately have found myself wearing shorts more and more (mainly because they are so comfortable).  And while I typically don't think about "layering" this time of year, I really love the idea of a collared button-down underneath a peplum top (last seen here).  Since these pieces are both so lightweight, I decided it would work just as well for summer with a sleeveless blouse...especially when the collar is a bejeweled one worth showing off.







What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 shirt (similar here or here), H&M peplum top (similar), Jennifer Lopez Shorts (similar)ALDO Pumps (similar), Mossimo clutch (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Target Sunglasses, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Sweetheart

What a pretty look! The neutrals paired with the pops of color work beautifully together. I love how you layered the tops and added in a bit of fall via the colors and fabrics. So inspiring as always Kim!

I love a collared shirt under a peplum. It's just so classy! All of mine are long sleeve though. I don't think I have any sleeveless. You look so pretty!

I would have never thought of peplum as a layer piece, but it looks so lovely! The colored shirt adds the perfect touch of glam!

You are the queen of layering collars underneath tops Kimberly! I would never think to do it.

PS I am loving your hair this length, do you think you will keep it short?

If you hadn't told me that top was actually two pieces I wouldn't have known! It's simply smashing, especially with the shorts.
