McGinn Amber Stripe Peplum Top - $55.98, Nordstrom (originally $140)
I was really dubious of the peplum trend for a long time, but I have since realized they are perfect tops to wear with suits/black work pants - you don’t have to tuck them in or worry about them looking un-polished because they aren’t tucked in. And they aren’t tight around your stomach, which is always a win.
I have been really impressed with Target flats lately - I used to feel like they were just generally not all that comfortable, but the Shae flats are awesome. The look just and feel like my favorite Steve Madden Heaven flats, but they are $12 - $17 instead of $40.
Don’t you just hate it when you get an e-mail from someone saying “Shop this sale!” or “Shop our site” with a picture of something you really want, and then when you click over to the site, that item is definitely not there?
I have been wanting this sweater for awhile - I saw it on Stacy London on an episode of What Not to Wear, but I’ve never found it (I think Stacy’s was from J. Crew but by the time I spotted in on her they sold out; and Kohl’s was selling a very similar one but then sold out of it). Now an e-mail I got from ShopStyle tells me Macy’s has it, but they definitely don’t.
I love this look from Banana Republic, and I think you could get a lot of use out of these separates. A field jacket is just about the only kind of jacket I don’t have, and I am tempted by this one!
