pretty peplum

top <yoana baraschi>, skirt <zara>, heels <vintage emilio pucci>, clutch <betsey johnson, bracelets <j.crew, the limited, tiffany $ co.>, ring <ann taylor>

this season was all about peplums.  my guess is that it won’t be as big next year, so if you like the look, wear it now!  i couldn’t help myself when i found these vintage emilio pucci heels.  i’m sure they are from the 1990s which is pretty fabulous:) the complexity of the peplum pairs well with the simplicity of the slip-on mules.  hello pretty peplum!

nautical escape

top <maeve>, trousers <level 99>, wedges <l.a.m.b.>, bag <diane von furstenberg>, hat <purchase in mexico>, necklace <anthropologie>, bracelets <anthropologie and gifted>

wearing this look i’d like to find myself at a beautiful resort in the hamptons or palm beach.  this look is lightweight, surprisingly comfortable and perfectly nautical for a seaside venture.  it also creates the perfect silhouette.  peplum tops are the ultimate waist defining top.  i love its simplicity. with its barely-there abstract floral design, it contrasts these leg lengthening, bright pants nicely.  with a wide brimmed hat, having a similar nautical feel, a cocktail by the sea would be quite fitting!
