Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

With that said I decided to check out my go-to stores & see how they styled their trendy pieces into work-approved outfits. Here are my favorite outfits…and the prices are reasonable!

Must Buy: Envelope Clutch

Must Buy Item

Aldo Envelope Clutch

 

As Spring is just around the corner and your formal party invites begin to arrive in the mail I suggest you do yourself a favor and buy the Beige Envelope Clutch by Aldo for $40. This clutch is a transitional piece from day to night events as well as a basic neutral color to really coordinate with multiple colors and patterns. Also I really love how the envelope style clutch can actually fit more than your lipgloss and ID. The gold-tone detail really gives it some edge! Bust out your bridesmaid dress or floral printed summer BBQ dress and some flip flops and you are ready to party!
