Pursuit of Fashion

  Summer Peplum

THE shirt

When this top came in at Anthropologie , it was love at first sight. This top has got to be on the top favorite summer pieces list. The beautiful print combined with the elegant figure given by the peplum design makes for a wonderful piece.  The colors within the print are vibrant and rich, perfect for gaining that tropical summer feel.  The cut, fabric, and design gives the top a high end feel and sophisticated look. THE shirt closeup I paired this top with skinnydark wash denim jeans,  not to distract too much from the top. This piece is the statement, so minimizing other pieces was important in finishing the look. A pair of simple nude patent leather heels tops it all off and elevates the outfit a bit. (quite literally)

To accessorize, I wanted to keep it simple. I put my hair up becuase I think the neckline is quite elegant and wanted to emphasize that.  I paired the top with simple stud earrings and a vintage jade necklace passed down to me from my grandmother.  The greens and golds printed in the top tied in to the  jade and gold necklace very well. This top was a must-have for me, and has become a beautiful statement piece for my spring and summer wardrobe.

Pursuit of a Blog

 

The idea of having a blog has been floating in my head for far too long. Finally I started one up, and so, I give you this. This blog is to give a peek into my world, my running thoughts of culture, music, fashion, love, and life.
