Peplum, Teal, and Sky High Heels




Lately, I've been in love with teal.  I repeatedly find myself reaching for items in this color when shopping in stores.  I snagged both the clutch and heels while shopping Bloomingdale's recent private sale.  I'm especially loving the 5 inch Sam Edelman heels due to the height they add to 5'2'' me. As a petite gal, I definitely use all the help I can get. ;)  Another style obsession of mine at the moment is peplum, especially when paired with a pencil silhouette.   




Peplum Top by Guess (similar here and here), HM Skirt, BCBGeneration Clutch (similar for less), Shoes by Sam Edelman, Bracelets by InPink and HM, Ring by Vera Wang, Sunglasses by Michael Kors

One of the things I love most about blogging is discovering new blogs and meeting fellow bloggers and fashion lovers.  I also love hearing from all of you, so please don't be shy about leaving a comment to say hi. 

My favorite morning ritual consists of catching up on reader comments and my daily fashion blog reads, while sipping a caramel macchiato and munching on a croissant.  I can't think of a better way to start each day!

Please follow via Google and Bloglovin'...I'd love to be in touch. I'm also now on Twitter. Looking forward to hearing from you. :)


Love, S

  1. I like this outfit especially the floral skirt. Peplum paired with a pencil silhouette make you look slender and taller. Good match, good color.
