Color! I love to wear it and I love it around me. There is certainly a time and place for a more muted ensemble, but I feel most like myself in bright colors. Right now, Kiyonna has some truly fun and colorful patterns in a variety of silhouettes. Naturally, I am a sucker for a great peplum, so getting my hands on this top was a no-brainer.
I wore this outfit to dinner with my husband and mother-in-law. We headed out to one of our favorite spots: McMenamins Edgefield. I've mentioned the Edgefield so many times before. In a nutshell, it is a hotel, winery, brewery/distillery, golf course, restaurant/pub, and much more. It is the location of mine and Sean's third date (among many others), as well as the the site or our engagement and wedding. It is special to our history and just happens to be a fun place to hang out whenever we get the urge to go.
During our stroll on the grounds, we happened upon the wooded path where, on our wedding day, we met up to see each other at our dressiest. The trees and plants have all grown so much in the last six years! We meandered down the path, taking photos and reminiscing about seeing each other that day. Thinking back on those sweet moments gives my tummy little flutters.
If you have been on the fence about buying this top, I recommend you GET IT! The stripes are so vibrant, the sleeves are a great length (just a tad shorter than the Posh Peplum), and the keyhole and bow detail are too cute. I also feel that the princess seams on this design, combined with the v-neckline, provide a better fit for my body. The material has stretch, which makes it comfortable to wear. I adore this top and feel like it will work in all seasons and for many occasions. For reference, I am wearing a size 3X on my 5'9" frame.

And because I also adore my husband and his momma, here are a couple extra photos we took that day:
