Peplum, please! / 2 Month Blogging Anniversary

Today marks the end of my 2nd month of blogging, and I can't believe what a crazy, fun, and positive experience this has been.  Starting a fashion blog has been something that I had been wanting to get into for a long time, and I am so glad that I finally went for it, because you guys have been amazing in your response.  I can not thank you enough for your positive feedback.  From your comments to your emails, I feel so honored to be accepted into this blogging world, and your kindness has meant so much.  As of today, at the end of two months, I am 430 followers strong on GFC and 76 on BlogLovin'.  Thank you so much for continuing to help my little blog grow!!


Now moving on to my outfit post...

I have just been in love with peplum this summer!  And, after being on the hunt for the perfect peplum top, I finally found this lovely mint-colored one at H&M last week!  I'm so obsessed with the feminine shape that the peplum top creates, and I think it goes well with so many things.  I've seen peplum tops worn with everything from skirts to leggings.  With mine, I've chosen to pair it with some black glossy-washed jeans and embroidered heels.  What do you guys think of my pairing?








Top: H&M (not sold online, but in love with this green one)
Jeans: (can't remember!!)
Bag: Chanel (M/L Black Caviar w/ SHW)
Jewelry: Bracelets- Stone Bracelet- Unknown (gift from my grandmother); 
Crystal bracelets- LA Jewelry district (similar here)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Rhonda Dina Embroidered 140

ALSO, I was so excited to see myself featured on Designer's Cut blog here!  I feel so honored to have my styling appreciated by this lovely blog!  Please check it out if you have a free chance!

AND PLEASE Don't forget to follow on Facebook (where I post sneak peeks of my DIY projects), on BlogLovin' and now on LookBook!

    1. Thank you so much, Ashley! A few people have asked me the same question, and the one thing I make sure to do is to respond to all of my comments! I've been putting a lot of time into my blog and treating it like a job, which is what I think has been helping me to gain such a great response! I hope that helps! :)

    2. Definitely-- I've been doing the same (responding, reading lots of blogs and commenting, etc) so hopefully I'll start picking up some major traction. Keep up the great blogging! :)

  41. I can't believe how successful you've gotten in 2 months! Makes me feel a little bit of a failure, but nonetheless - you totally deserve it.

    This peplum top is drool-worthy, and I wish I could find it at an h&m near me. It's the perfect color, and it fits you marvelously. I also really like how you've styled it with the tight black pants - because it really allows the top to pop.

    Pop top!
