For the 3rd post in this series with T.J. Maxx, we are talking about another trend that is HUGE for Spring 2013 – black & white! These contrasting shades were seen all over the runways in everything from bold stripes, mixed prints & sleek separates. It happens to be one of my favorite trends for the season (as evidenced by this post), so I was thrilled to put together an outfit with pieces I found at my local store.
This time I decided to go for a sophisticated look that would work both in & out of the office. I’ve long been a fan of peplum and this top is the perfect light & airy option for those warmer days when you still want to look polished. And every girl should have a pair of black slim cropped trousers in her closet – easy to dress up or down & ideal for showing off your favorite pair of heels! I wanted to add in some metallic accessories to finish off the look & couldn’t believe my eyes when I found this gorgeous necklace for less than $30!! It bears an uncanny resemblance to a designer piece that I had been eyeing, but never could have afforded…just one of the many reasons why I love shopping at T.J. Maxx (the deals are insane)!

This little white peplum is so cute!! It will be the perfect summer piece. And you and I are thinking the same way… I have a post coming up next friday wearing black and white with a little bit of gold in my sandals (which is different from what I normally do). I like the way it looks!

I love the lace peplum! I have one just like it in teal that I can't wait to wear again (if it would ever warm up!) Very pretty and sophisticated!
Sophisticated look indeed!!! I LOVE that lace peplum..two of my favourite things in one! Great look girl xo
Rhymes With Fashion says
Completely adore the necklace. Gorgeous!
You are so right about the slim cut cropped black pants – I'm still on the hunt for some! I need something a little more tapered than what you have I think because I'm shorter – yours look great on you, though!
