{Top: H&M | Jeans: Similar | Shoes: Seychelles | Tote: c/o Questhaven}

Would you believe me if I told you that I bought this top the same day I bought this peplum top? I am like a dog with a chew toy when I find a new trend; I just won't give it up. But it's just that I like to commit, that's all. I don't have a problem, I promise. I can quit peplum's at anytime.

  1. That top has been on the top of my To-Buy list for ages, but I can never find it in my H&M store grr :( Oh well, that just means having to pop in that many more times to search and buying lots of consolation pieces ;) Love the way you styled this!

  9. I like the tote and its functional-everyday style. Plus, it looks like you can fit a lot of girly junk in it. It's always a good when a bag can pretty much go with any outfit too. =)

  13. Oh NOOOOOO the polka dots on your shirt MELTED. This is tragic. Perhaps we should start a foundation and collect donations. What will you do with the money we raise? Probably buy more peplum.

  16. I swear the H&M's in FL don't carry any of this stuff! I always have the hardest time finding anything H&M you post on here... this is why I'm glad I'm moving to Europe in 10 days -- the motherland of H&M

  19. I've seen another blogger sporting that lovely top. But I can't seem to find it at my local H&M. Maybe it's sold out, or we aren't going to get it in Toronto? Too bad, it's a great top.

  38. I love this top, it's so cute, and in fact, the spots remind me of Dalamtians ;-) and of course the Disney movie ;-) 
    Beautiful outfit!

  39. The spots remind me of 101 Dalmatians too! No worries, you do not remind me one bit of Cruella DeVille. You'd have to wreck your hair and chainsmoke for 30 years before you even got close to that mess. 

    This outfit is stunning! Love the black/white/red combo :)

    Love this color combo! SO glad you show your labels tag now - I thought your pants were orange!? Now I see they are red! A big "Thank you" for the labels - from the orange/red colorblind librarian :)

  44. wow this is such an incredible outfit, Kendi! love the pop of colour from the pants and the polka dot pattern from your top!

  49. I saw that top on a different blog today and I LOVE IT.  I love it because it's peplum (I have an obsession with the trend, too) and because it's $14.95.  $14.95.  I had to write it twice because I almost couldn't believe it.  Note to self: Go to H & M as soon as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just bought a peplum top from H&M last weekend and I am wearing it today. Peplum maka da world go round. :)

  57. How much does my life suck when I don't live an accessible distance to an H&M? So much. Can we call this "dalmation peplum"? LOVE it. Also, omg, I have worn these shoes before!!!! My sister has them and I borrowed them in Vegas, they are so so so great and also so very out of my price range. I'll add them to my "list of Kendi's clothes that I am jealous of"

    perfectly priya

  58. I love "spots" with red. I hope you like this trend a little longer:)

  65. I'm in love with every aspect of this outfit. I was already drooling, and then I got to the shoes, and I give up. No one can be as awesome and stylish as you! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love it! I actually just bought the skinny pants in the same print. They may be a little less easy to wear than that lovely peplum but I couldn't resist!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love this top!!! It looks so good with your figure !

  68. Those shoes go so well with with those skinny jeans.  Love the look... I'll be sure to look for that peplum top next time I'm at H&M.

  79. This top fits you so nicely! I tried it on when I was in there and sadly, not so nice. I feel that way about polka dot pants...people can try to pry them from my cold, dead fingers :)
