I love this black peplum top just as much as my white one. (Have I mentioned how much I love peplum??) I have very few “going out” tops, as I am not one who frequents the night clubs and D.C. hot spots on a regular basis, but this top is great for a night out dancing with the girls. Hell, it’s also great for a night in watching True Blood (guilty) with a glass of wine in hand… I have been all about the couch potato life lately on nights that I’m not working. Some say “rest is for the weary, sleep is for the dead”, but I definitely do not count myself in that group. This girl needs her sleep.

I am in love with peplum tops. There’s just no other way to say it. The shape and length of peplum hugs and gives in all of the right places. I have also found that my peplum tops give me versatility in dressing for a causal day on the town, date night, or work event. I’ve been a girl on the go these past couple of weeks, so not having to fuss about my outfit before running out the door has been totally key in keeping my stress level low. I realized quickly that peplum does not let me down, especially when paired with my relaxed fit boyfriend jeans, cute pumps, and a daring crop top. If you’ve been cautiously avoiding (or resisting) the bare-all crop top trend, this is a perfect way to ease yourself into it, just in time for a month that calls for layering.
