a wearable peplum top

Ever since the peplum trend became a thing a few years ago, I’ve been trying to find a peplum top that would suit me. Being the pear shaped lady that I am, meaning that my hips are the widest part of my body, it was a real nightmare. Every single top that I tried made me look 10 pounds heavier and none worked for my body type. I had stopped looking for one until I came across this top at H&M with a 50% tag on it. It was a beautiful color and a great neoprene-like material, so I decided to give it a go. After a few twirls in my fitting room and the approval of Elena, I was at the till ready to make it mine.

I wore it for the first time in Bruges and I mixed it with my pair of black skinny jeans (already seen here) and a basic black blazer. I love how feminine and sophisticated the whole look is without feeling over the top. Of course, it started to rain just as we were shooting these photos, which explains why my hair looks so fluffy and all over the place!
