Peplum Stripes

Striped peplum top  /  Cobalt blue jeans  /  Floral necklace  /  Sam Edelman Felicia Flats  /  Revlon lipstick in “Wild Orchid”  /  Yellow flower earrings

This top combines two of my favorite things: peplum and stripes. What’s even better is that it’s black and white, so it goes with just about any color of pants, shorts or even a skirt.   I chose to pair it with some cobalt jeans and a fun, spring necklace. My mom says this necklace is tacky and looks like something a grandmother would wear, but I like it!

I also don’t enjoy wearing my hair up, but sometimes my mane doesn’t like to cooperate so I throw it up in a bun. This was one of those days.


  1. Ooohh….loving this peplum top. I STILL don’t have one…but need to change that! I think this necklace is really cute!! But you have to love your mom’s comment..haha!! Funny how fashion is constantly changing!

  2. I love peplum tops- and the stripes make it extra special! That necklace is amazing too! And I’m always one for throwing my hair up when it won’t cooperate!

  3. I love your peplum and the beautiful necklace you added is perfect! You look so lovely. Fabulous for spring

  4. I have a similar black and white striped peplum. It’s great because it goes with everything but is simple, chic, and comfortable!

  5. I am equally obsessed with peplums! and I can only hope to be that stylish when I am a grandma 😉

  6. You look so pretty Rachel! Love your hair up 🙂 And I LOVE that necklace, I have a similar one from Lia Sophia, you reminded me that I should wear it soon!

    1. Thanks Brenna! People used to always ask if I was a ballerina because I’m little, but now I bet it was also because I used to rock a bun a lot! haha

  7. the first thing i noticed was actually how cute that necklace is – i think it’s gorgeous! i also think your hair looks awesome in a top knot! i don’t like wearing my hair up either though it just feels unnatural to me

  8. you look so lovely 🙂 Were you a ballerina? You have that gorgeous dainty body shape perfect for one!

  9. My immediate reaction was to comment on how much I love your hair up! Then I read the last line lol. Even still, beautiful.

  10. Love it! I have the same one too and I was so happy to snag it before they were sold out. It goes with everything….and is surprisingly slimming {double bonus!}

    Also, you look great with your hair up! Stylish as always!

  11. Your makeup looks so great and I really like your hair up! I’m with you, I hate wearing mine up too but sometimes it’s necessary.

  12. I love peplums they are always so chic and elegant and stripes makes them even cuter Rachel 🙂
