Peplum Tank + Trousers
Good morning everyone! It's gorgeous here even if it is Monday. Spring decided to stake its claim over the weekend and usher back in some chilly temperatures, but hey, it IS only mid May. We're within sniffing distance of Memorial Day and while I don't believe in letting arbitrary dates on the calendar dictate when I wear white, I am ready to start breaking out these new trousers with a little more frequency.
They're absolutely beautiful in person. A nice, bright white, lightweight without being sheer (the dreaded side effect of white bottoms). I love their higher rise which you can't see underneath the tank, but trust me, they create a beautiful, long silhouette. Oh - did I mention they ring in at under $50?
On the flip side of that same coin, they do run very long -- I'm 5'8" and wearing 4" platforms to avoid dragging these babies on the ground. I may decide to hem them so I can wear them on a more casual basis with lower profile heeled sandals.
Excited to get more wear out of this tank, too! It's definitely one of those looks-way-more-expensive-than-it-is finds that make you feel like you're winning at life. The straps are adjustable which helps with A) boob control, and B) getting the peplum to hit at your natural waist. Speaking of peplum, that trend is 100% happening and it kinda snuck up on me! There's a lot of pretty peplums to be had right now. I like this, this, and this one, too!
I love a spaghetti strap tank with a long, delicate necklace layered over top. I'm obsessed with my Charleston Rice Beads -- you can wrap them so many times and ways, it's like having multiple necklaces and bracelets in one pretty package. Digging on the rose gold color (pale pinks/blush is having a major moment right now), but the new mint green and white options are awfully enticing, too.
This may be borderline blasphemous, but I get tired of pulling jeans off the shelf every time I want to wear pants. Wide leg trousers make a basic tee look super pulled together, so I'm looking forward to getting lots of use out of them this summer. This might be the beginning of a new go-to...
