TLT Lookbook: Peplum

Hello! Welcome to the first edition of The Little Things Lookbook! In this series we will pick a specific trend, style, occasion etc... and feature several looks for it. 

For our debut lookbook we will be showcasing a great trend, a peplum top! Peplum is an often misunderstood style and can be intimidating to wear. In this entry we will take you through 4 looks. Let's get started!

About the top:

This peplum top is from Target for $19.99 and comes in 4 colors. White, Navy, Kelly Green and Honey Suckle, which is a nice bright coral color.

I was searching for a plain peplum when I stumbled across this one. I love the flower lace detail and thought it was perfect for springtime. 

I decided on white because we were taking some family portraits and it could easily suit my needs with some colored jewelry.

I wanted to take the photos outside, but it insisted on raining all day.

Look 1:

I paired the top with a nice black pencil skirt (Express) and black suede wedges from Burlington Coat Factory (Soda)

I accessorized with a fedora hat with an over-sized brim, a simple gold triangle necklace and gave the outfit a pop of color with a skinny yellow belt with a gold buckle. (XXI)

Look 2:

In this look I really wanted to play up the soft flower lace pattern. I paired it with a soft pink skinny jean (XXI) and some wedges with swirls of browns, pinks and white (Buckle)

For the accessories I went with a great springtime necklace with flowers of white and pinks (Icing) and a belt with flowers along that same color scheme (XXI)

Look 3:

For a casual look, I selected a dark wash skinny jean (Buckle) and some black booties with heels (Vince Camuto)

I went with cobalt for a pop of color and added a belt, chunky necklace and finished it off with a black tailored blazer (Target)

Forgive my face in this photo, very unenthusiastic!

Look 4:

This last look was paired with a navy & white striped tube skirt (Target) and some navy & brown heels (Antonio Melani)

I love navy and pink, so I topped this with a pale pink blazer (XXI) and a long 2-tiered turquoise necklace (Walmart)

And that's it for the first TLT Lookbook! I wanted to take the photos outside, but it insisted on raining all day so I created a backdrop and did my best! I'm still getting accustomed to the self timer and using a tripod on myself, but hopefully the photo/posing quality will improve over time! I could certainly use a personal photographer!
