Top: Marshall (recent) (similar here, lace-y one at Asos) (totally in love with this one)

Jeans: AE (similar on sale

Shoes: Michael Kors

Bag: Kate Spade

Belt: Target (similar) (and here for $10)

Necklace: Violet Princesse Bib- BaubleBar

Watch: Michael Kors

Bracelet: Banana Republic (old), J.Crew

This top came along by accident. Sort of. I already purchased one from BR, a very pretty one. So pretty that I bought one for my Mom as well. I couldn’t pass it up even though there was a tiny bit of room round my waist (I’m sure I was the only one that noticed it). 

But then I saw this one at Marshalls. Tried it on and the rest is history. It’s not as pretty as the BR one but it fits so much better it’s almost as pretty because of it. 

Now my sister is the new owner of my “old” never worn BR peplum to. 

You’re welcome missy!

    You look gorgeous!! I love everything about this outfit. Perfect jeans, and I love the pink belt with the black peplum top. What type of camera lens do you use? I ask because my full body shots are still looking far away and I'm thinking maybe I need another lense. There sure is a lot of reading that goes along with these cameras…LOL!XO, Gina

    I have been so dismayed by the recent comeback of neon. It was not good in the 80's, and it's not good now. (Even though I had a neon pink shirt back in the 80's that I LOVED at the time.) But I have to say – I love your neon belt. THAT is how one should wear neon!Mary Anne

    The peplum style is gorgeous on you and I love the belt you paired with it. I'm scared of diving into the peplum trend though coz of my big hip/big boob body. I'm worried it'd be an overkill. Doesn't stop me from admiring it on others πŸ™‚

    After much perseverence, I finally found this at my local Marshalls today. They had only one in the black, in my size [praise the heavens] hiding behind a whole bunch in marigold yellow ones. For those wondering, the maker is called Nicolette, and the belt it standardly comes with is a black braided one.

    don't know if you read these from so far back but…… I LOVE YOUR BLOG. I'm a new follower. I love how you've done the belt. I noticed you wore it with pants once or twice. Even with wrapping like you did, how do you keep it from slipping without the hole so far up?
