As much as I am enamored with color, I am perhaps equally as enamored with neutrals. They are soft, feminine, and, most importantly, a refreshing break from the neons and brights that I normally find myself gravitating towards (more often than not)…

Don’t you love when you have been eyeing something online and it turns out to be even better in person? Such was the case with this cute peplum top. I had seen it online, but as much as I love it, have a hard time with the whole peplum trend (I am very short-waisted, so they don’t normally do much for me). But when my family was here for Memorial Day weekend, my mom treated my sister-in-law and me to a traditional shopping trip, and I was able to spot it on the rack at Forever21. And I have to say, it’s one of those Forever21 pieces that is quite impressive. While most of the stuff in that store is fairly cheap both in quality and in price, and what I would consider “disposable” fashion (not that it can’t still have a very desirable place in your wardrobe), they do have items (if you have the patience) that are actually quite nice and very well made. And this top is one of them. The fit and fabric are both lovely and in person it looks very expensive. Don’t you just love finding bargains like? Me and my bank account sure do. 😉
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
