Neon & Peplum


A little neon there, a little peplum here. This will be my last outfit post from Vancouver, so I had to make it special. I'm anticipating a lot more heavy winter clothes once I hit the East Coast so I wanted to be as Spring-y as possible while I could. That being said, Vancouver seems to be prepping me for the upcoming climate change by mixing the pleasant sunshine with bitter cold. It couldn't have been above 1 degree so our photo shoot was cut a little short, & filled with laughter over my red nose (most apparent in the last of these photos) & incredulous looks from bundled-up passers-by. 


I showed you this neon yellow jersey pencil skirt (à la ASOS) in my last post & was delighted by the positive feedback I got from you guys. Trust me, I love it too. I decided to pair it with my 'Scuba-esque' peplum top from H&M (also fairly new) & my Steve Madden peep-toe heels. I really liked the resulting look & chose to wear it for my last day of work at BR. The only thing I'd like to change about it would be the addition of a little arm party. My Michael Kors watch is looking a little lonely there by itself. And no, that pesky hair elastic that I unfortunately overlooked does not count. 


So there you have it; one last Vancouver look. Tomorrow I fly across the country. Today? Well I have yet to pack a single thing but that's beside the point. I've got an irresistible urge to go shopping, the sun is shining, & Kris & I are going to have one last friend date. It's going to be lovely :)








I was wearing:
Neon yellow jersey pencil skirt - ASOS
Black Peplum top - H&M
Peep-toe Heels - Steve Madden
Gold Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors
Necklace - Forever 21
Nail polish - OPI Mermaid's Tears

    And you're like me, I'm SUCH a slacker at packing! I wait till the day of or the night before if I'm ahead of the ball. LOL :)
    Also, that hair of yours is amazingly long and so healthy looking. All around, I loved this post.

  16. That peplum top is killing me, in the best possible way. I've been drooling over one on the asos curve website... cannot decide between black, lilac or cheetah, but I think this post convinced me.
    Have a nice flight and maybe I'll see you soon!

  29. Please help me. Where can I get this top? I have looked everywhere. Ended up buying it in the light pink out of desperation, but I want it in the black so badly. Someone help please. Size 10, 12 or 14. I will make it fit. :)
