Peplum, Pearls & Lace

Wearing - Top: Papaya {sold out–similar here) | Shorts: TJ Maxx | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bracelets: Olive + Piper, Mindy's Minute Market | Watch: Vince Camuto

You probably remember my debacle from traveling earlier this June to San Antonio, accompanied by my lost luggage and scramble to find clothing to wear to the trade show's evening networking hour. If not–here's a refresher. By happy accident, I was able to find something to wear fairly quickly and left San Antonio with a suitcase that was slightly heavier. But this top from Papaya was my find of the day and paired perfectly with the hot Texas weather the week I was there.

I took these photos at the beginning of July and just ran across them, realizing I hadn't posted them yet. I wore this outfit to my sister's open house and strangely enough, my mom, sister and I all decided to be a black and white outfitted trio. So the group photos are pretty funny, but unfortunately they turned out to be very blurry. However, you can still enjoy my look!

    1. Aren't peplum tops the best? They give you the most defined little waist, and for a girl that's more pear shaped it works well. Ha! Thank you for stopping by again Jessica!

    1. It was SUCH a nightmare Ashley! I wasn't sure what I was going to wear for a work event so I was scouring the mall for clothing that I would make work. Luckily, at the last minute, my luggage showed up and I was able to have my stuff and some new pieces.
