navy week :: navy peplum

It's Day 4 of Navy Week, and it's also the debut of my navy peplum top... which I've had for over a year. Can you believe I've never worn it? Not once? I've tried it on countless times in my bedroom, and almost wore it once with white jeans, but that day ended up being really rainy. I'm not sure if it was the color that drew me in initially, or the sleeves, but either way, I loved the top. I still do, but I just feel like it looks weird on me. Or is it just that the belt and necklace don't work together? Bah! The longer I look at this outfit, the more things I find wrong with it. Am I just being too critical? Should I give the top another shot?

  1. No! I love it and it's perfect on you! It lends itself well to that skirt too, which is probably one of my favorite items of yours.

  2. No way - it looks awesome on you! And I'm being honest - this outfit is awesome. You should wear it more often! I wish I had gotten my stuff together to join navy week :( You guys are making me wish I had more navy in my closet and the peplum top is definitely my favorite of the whole week!

  7. This top is beautiful! I really like it, and it is perfect with this skirt. Maybe you don't need to wear a belt at all with it?

  9. I completely agree with the other commenters--you look fantastic in this top! Definitely worth keeping around and wearing many more times. I like the idea of wearing it with white jeans too--on a non-rainy day :)

  10. I see nothing wrong with this outfit. I am a huge fan of peplum and love how it defines your tiny waist.

  11. That shirt and skirt are gorgeous! I love them together too! I see what you mean about the necklace and belt though. I used to not mind wearing a statement necklace with a belted waist, but lately I've been liking "less is better" type outfits. You look great though :)

  12. i think this top looks fantastic the way you've styled it! i don't own any peplum, but it seems really natural to wear a belt at the waistline of the top so i give a thumbs up to the belt! i can't wait to see the next time you wear this top, don't let it become neglected!

  13. I don't see anything wrong with the top at all! I think the color and gorgeous and it fits you really well. I think pairing it with a slimmer skirt is the most flattering. I'd say give it another chance!
