Feeling Fierce: I succumbed to the peplum

Blazer: Thrifted, Peplum Blouse: H&M, Necklace: Anthropologie, Trousers: Winner’s, Flats: Winner’s

So that’s it… I gave in. I tried on the year’s one trend I thought would never work for me and I ended up loving it! I was out shopping with Holly one evening in a mad panic about what I would wear for my engagement photos (don’t worry I found something— and no I did not wear this peplum top)… and Holly insisted I try on a peplum blouse just to give it a try.

As much as I thought it would make me look frumpy (I believe I have what Glamour Magazine would call a pear shaped body) it actually made me look lady-like. It cinch’s the waist in the right place and is actually sort of… (dare I say it)… slimming.

Best of all this trend cost me only $20 at H&M… you know the price you are supposed to pay for a trend thats fun but may not be around for long.

Has anyone else bought a peplum blouse this season? Do you love it? Or is it just a fad for fall?

I couldn’t find this H&M top on their website to link to, but the store has tons of peplum tops right now in all different colors and textures. Check it out if you’re interested!
