What I Wore: Birthday Party Peplum

In an effort to recap all of the festivities surrounding my recent birthday, I will start from the beginning.  Towards the end of April, my cousin hosted a birthday celebration for my aunt and I.  It is an almost quarterly event to celebrate each of us, plus we usually have a Christmas get-together as well. It is always a fun time to laugh, eat yummy food, and spend time with each other.

I opted to be casual and comfortable, first and foremost.  I also wanted to wear my navy blue peplum top that I bought from eShakti a couple months or so ago.  I absolutely LOVE this style of top.  I know a lot of people are sick of the peplum now, but I am not.  I can't get enough of it!

The material is a stretchy knit that is easy to wear.  When I had this top customized, I went with elbow-length sleeves and the tunic length, which just made it slightly longer.  I now own this style in brown stripe, burgundy, and navy!  eShakti changes the styles they carry quite frequently, so keep checking the website for new items!

In addition to wearing my new top, I thought I would try the "jeans rolled up" look.  It isn't something I normally do, so why not try it?  These jeans are some shorter, straight leg ones from Avenue.  I think I should have taken some extra time to iron the rolls down a little, but I was in a hurry.  Garment tape to the rescue!!

An emerald green necklace and purple loafers for some color and - TADA!  I got lots of compliments on this outfit and was told I looked "very Parisian".

  1. Your little Miss Stella looks like she likes the head bows as much as my little Miss Evie does...that being, not at all (Miss Evie actively removes them, along with her socks, at every opportunity). I love the color combination with the green necklace & purple flats. I'm glad you got birthday-ed properly.

  2. I like that it's a somewhat different kind of peplum--I usually see them with the stiff fabric that actually sticks out more, but I think I like this kind better.

  3. Yes! Miss Stella got so mad at the headband at a certain point and yanked it off of her head with a vengeance! She makes the funniest angry faces. lol

  4. Thank you. I like that this one is a little big longer too. I really love the proportions of the top.
