The Four P's

Happy Monday!!

You're probably wondering about the title of my post and is asking yourself, what are the four P's? 

Well, it stands for Peplum, Peter Pan, & Pleather! haha... Clever huh?? 
(Try saying that five times fast...)

I have been seeing the trend of peplum popping up lately and I keep thinking to myself, 'I don't think I'll look good in that'... Well, after trying on a few and searching.. I finally found one that fits me. And even better that it comes with a pleather peter pan collar which is another trend that has been going around too for Fall. It's like a two trend in one top type of deal!! haha.. The sound of 'pleather' just makes me laugh a little and brings me back to the days of when I used to work at Banana Republic Petite in my teen years. Just putting away all the pleather pants we would get in shipments and the smell was just overwhelming.. (Oh god.. was it that long ago?!) And 'Peter Pan collar' just sounds Disney cute to me! :)

 I do like this top though because not only does it fit but it's in cobalt blue which is a color that I've been picking up lately! Pair it with black skinnies and pointy toe heels and you're good to go! Seattle has had some on and off weather lately.. sun would come out then next hour it'll be pouring with rain with strong winds. So of course I wore a black cardigan with a cute flower on top acting as a 'brooch' to keep warm. ;)

What do you think about peplum tops and peter pan collars? Is that a trend you will stick to?

**Update** I realized after I had posted this that my peplum top came out to be looking like a purple color. haha... Either way it's cute!! It's really cobalt blue in person just wished the photos showed it. ;)

  2. I love love it. You know how I feel about peplums, i hope they stay for good. It suits your body right and the color looks amazing on you. The pleather collar is yet another twist to a all standard ones with the same fabric. You really lookmgood and the eye make up is so sexy ! Happy Monday dear and love the 4P's !

  4. I really like your outfit! I have a few cardigans with decorations on them that I only ever wear with plain tanks because I worry that it'll be too much, but now I'll have to try them out with other things.

  26. Haha I love your 4 P's, it's brilliant! You know I always envy girls who can wear peplum. Being more of a curvy type, peplum will only add to my "builkines" to the area I do not want to draw attention to. As I said goodbye to to peplum trend, I do enjoy looking at others wearing it though :)
    It's starting to feel absolut freezing down here too. I guess winter is really upon us!
    You look so cute in this outfit! I really love that Peter Pan's collar :)
