Houndstooth & Peplum

I have a penchant for being a little behind on most fashion trends. When I see something that celebs wear and I like it, I don't jump right away and get my own piece. I try to test the waters first, so to speak. I am fully aware that trends come and go. Hence, I wanted to make sure that a particular trend would suit me (and look good on me) before being on board with it.


Such is the case with peplum. I had been eyeing it for some time and love it on celebrities that I've seen wear them. I was initially worried that it might not work for a petite girl like me. But it was too irresistible for a trend to pass up. 

If you think that this peplum top looks familiar, well it's because I've already featured it here. No shame there. I love it, what can I do?

 
 
And you know what's one other thing I'm obsessed with right now? Houndstooth! I love this pattern. Love it with a passion! I am not usually all rave about B&W patterns but there is something about houndstooth that takes me back to Audrey Hepburn's era. Simple, sophisticated and classic. That's my kind of style. This, by the way, is my outfit of choice during my birthday lunch with the family.

What's your favorite trend lately?

  1. The peplum looks fabulous on you girl! That light color with short sleeves is the perfect one for your frame. The houndstooth skirt matches perfectly! :)

  5. This looks great on you hun, I'm the total same with being behind on the trends, to be honest I usually dislike most things but start to warm to them, and finally love them when it's almost out of fashion, oh well!
