fash•ion (fash-uh n) | peplum tops

As I've mentioned before, I'm lucky to have other blogger friends who are also expecting this year. Not only is it great because we can compare pregnancy notes, but it also gives me inspiration for putting myself together when really it's very un-motivating.

About a month ago, blogger friend Jen posted a peplum lookbook and it reminded me that I had one of these tops sitting in my closet.  Thankfully I remembered because I realize how wonderful this top is for hiding my bump that looks more like I just ate a huge Chipotle burrito for lunch.  Until I start rounding out, I'm trying to find the best flowy tops to cover it up - otherwise you'll find me explaining to people that I'm pregnant not fat.

You don't have to be pregnant to rock this look.  In fact, you might rock it better if you weren't, but you'll notice that peplum tops and dresses are coming up everywhere...and it's quickly becoming my favorite style.  It's a perfect amount of girlyness without feeling over the top.

|What are your thoughts on the peplum style?  Are you embracing it or do you think it's a fad that peaked in the 80s?|

I think you look adorable. If you can rock a peplum top whilst prego, you can rock anything!

so cute!!!! I kept staring at your boots thinking, she is so lucky she can still wear regular shoes. I am not so fortunate, my feet are starting to swell my the day and flip flops are the only shoes that fit.

Love this style on you! My would've-been-bridesmaid dresses from JCrew had a peplum skirt and I bought a matching one...will have to bust it out sometime. I don't know if it's truly the most flattering cut on me/my hips, but i love it anyway!
