i’m wearing: h&m dalmatian peplum top (check your local store), scalloped black shorts (similar and less than $30), various bracelets, michael kors watch, zigi soho wedges and my new kooba bag.

i never really thought i was going to hop on the peplum trend train until my girl kimberly shared this top on her blog. even when i brought it into the fitting room with me, i didn’t think i would like it as much as i do. i guess it is just the peplum skirts/dresses i just never really envisioned myself in. i’ve also never been a big fan of shorts on myself but i keep buying them too so go figure!

p.s. how many peplum tops can one girl have? because i have this one and this one sitting in a cart. oOoOo…and i’m thinking about getting this faux leather one since this one i originally wanted doesn’t ship until nov!!!

    I am going to be honest with you! When the peplum trend first came out, I thought it was a bit too 80s for my taste, but it grew on me after awhile. I added 2 new peplum tops from H&M for Fall, you’ll see them in an upcoming post.

    As for the jacket in today’s post? You probably didn’t see it at your last H&M visit because I bought it in March of 2011, and it was only available at select H&M locations. Only the Michigan Avenue store in Chicago got it.

    Hi, just an FYI I actually ordered that peplum top from piperlime on Aug 13th and it said it was going to ship the end of November and I just got an email it will be shipping Aug 26th! So don’t be afraid to get that one if you like it :)

    I am living your leather peplum life! I saw the one from Piperlime backordered until Nov. 5 as well. So, I ordered the one from Urban Outfitters. Got it today. It fits great, looks and feels like leather. I ordered the size I usually wear and it’s true to size. I just didn’t want to miss out on the leather peplum trend!

    I can see why you got this top – very pretty (you look stunning in this outfit Jenn) and it will last you through fall. I have one peplum top (white) but several dresses with peplum attachments. Some are from Reiss about five years ago when I think the trend must have been popular? How happy was I when it came around again :-)
