Popular Peplums

Peplums are all the rage right now, and I’m totally down for this trend! I love it so much! So flattering and so cute. Maybe not the best option for super curvy girls, but I think if you wear it right you can get away with it. I love it as a little black dress or color blocked! Prints are also fun as well. Take a look at all of the celebrities below to see how all of the different body types wear it!

My favorite celebrity peplum! Model Coco Rocha in Jason Wu

My first runner up: Charlize Theron in Lanvin (She always looks flawless)

My second runner up: Jennifer Aniston in Tom Ford

Blake Lively in Victoria Beckham

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren (I love her in red)

Lucy Hale in Peter Som

Lady Gaga in Antonio Berardi (She actually looks classy here! Bravo Gaga!)

Kim Kardashian in Vigo (This is what I mean about the curvy thing, because it can almost make you look a little bit wider, but I think it still looks ok on her…borderline? What do you think?)

Dianna Agron in Stella McCartney

Emma Stone in Martin Grant

Beyonce in Peter Som (loving mustard!)

Victoria Beckham in her own dress

Here are three of my favorite peplums in stores now!

Chicago Trip – Day 2

I think this day was by far the busiest day we had. It was all so great though. It’s just so hard to fit everything that you want to do in when you only have a few days and especially when you have never been somewhere before and you just want to do everything! I recommend all of the things we did this day! We got up super early and went until probably 1 a.m. I was exhausted by the end of the night! So worth it!

First, we went downtown by Michigan Avenue where a lot of the site seeing is. This is just me standing with a lot of the older skyscrapers in the background.

Standing in front of Buckingham Fountain.

Jake in front of the fountain with the skyscrapers in the back.

Jake at Bears Stadium…well I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s where they play 🙂

Shedd Aquarium. This was actually one of my favorite things of the trip because I love marine and “aquatic” animals. They had a lot of animals there. The dolphins swimming everywhere and they had a bunch of Beluga whales. The otters and the penquins were the cutest. They also had one of those Shark things you could walk under. I almost felt like I was back home at Sea World 🙂

Back at Buckingham fountain with the water on…so pretty!

Millenium Park. They have live music there every day during the summer.

The BEAN! Actually this is called Cloud’s Gate, which I only knew because I read about it before hand. I always pictured it to be so shiny, which it was, but it was covered in fingerprints! I don’t know why I didn’t expect that with everyone touching it all the time. I just thought it was funny. But I have always wanted to see it and take a picture there. Check!

On the riverwalk.

What I Wore:

Top – Anthropologie; Shorts – American Eagle Outfitters; Shoes – Toms (best shoes to walk in!); Bag – Marc by Marc Jacobs.

The Purple Pig, off of Michigan Avenue. This had to be my favorite restaurant of the trip (thanks Hailey and Courtney for telling me about this!) It’s kind of just hiding in the corner, but you have to go and eat on the patio. Ohmigoodness it was sooo good! I wanted to order everything! This is a must go!

They have a bunch of schemers (I wish I could have tried more of them); we got the cucumber and feta with bread and I downed it! Then we got the greek tuna, muscles, and artichokes. It’s kind of a tapas place, which I love because then you can get a little bit of everything. The muscles were the best I had ever tried! It seems like I’m exaggerating…I’m not. I would go there every week if I didn’t live hours away.

Riding the subway out to Wrigley Field for our first game of the week! O and don’t worry, we stopped and got wings too…Wrigleyville (as they call it – the blocks all around the stadium) has tons of places to go hang out and eat for miles it seems. Such great food down that way also! More bar type food, pizza, and game type food, but still great. We got ten wings for like $2.00!

Cubs vs. Tigers at Wrigley Field

Cubby Bear! (yes I am fully aware of the creeper behind me)

After the game the subway is waaaay too packed to get right on, so we decided to go hang out for a while. We went shopping for a little and then went and listened to a local band at Cubby’s. So fun!

If you go to Chicago, you have to go to a baseball game! Wrigley Field is such an amazing stadium because it’s one of the few older ones left! It’s really cool to see. Get yourself some nachos and enjoy a game!

Mustard Moment with Oscar de le Renta’s Scalloped Pumps

Mustard is having a moment right now. It is one of my favorite fall colors. It stands out, but looks a little bit more adult and put together than neon. Plus, I’m not sure how well neon is going to go into the fall. Mustard is also pretty easy to wear. You really don’t have to do too much to pull an outfit together because your mustard piece is the statement. Add a simple piece or two a jewelry and a bold lip and you’re done!

Check out these amazing pieces below and let me know what your favorite is!

Tinley Road ‘Peter Pan Collar A-Line Mini’  –

Oscar de la Renta ‘Scalloped Suede Pumps’ –

Influene ‘Belted Skater Dress’ –

Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Sude Slingback Pump’ –

‘Ponti Skirt’ with Military Details –

Phillip Lim ‘Pleated Tweed Dress’ –

‘Ponte Rolled Sleeve Blazer’ –

Fashion Moment – Dianna Agron in Garden Floral Dress

Dianna Agron in Tracy Reese for Anthropologie and Miu Miu Shoes.

I LOVE this dress. I wanted to buy it for a wedding, but they were sold out of my size! However, I’m not sure that I love the black accessories. I think the belt throws it off, especially since she was at an outdoor, day event. But I do like the Miu Miu shoes separately from the dress.
