Peplums and Pencils!

Hi Guys,

Before I get started, I just wanted to wish you a Happy Heatwave!
Today's post is an outfit I wore on Saturday night, when I went out for a meal at Chester Race Course. As it was not during the day, I did not go down the fasinator route but opted for a glammed up peplum and pencil skirt combo. 

Top- H&M, Skirt- Missgudied
Shoes-Newlook, Clutch- Miss Selfridges
Sunglasses-ASOS, Ring-H&M
Earrings-A Gift, Nails- Essie Too too hot

It has been ages since I wore a peplum top, as you know I have been loving crop tops recently, so my peplums have been relegated to the back of my wardrobe. However as I was going out for a nice meal, I decided that the best option would be a peplum, and then it meant I could breath out after the food! I love the styling of a peplum top and pencil skirt it creates such a gorgeous silhouette and is flattering on my pear shaped hips.  

Florals have not been a print I have found myself wearing this summer, but I loved this print from H&M, I liked that fact that it was white based, which I think is more elegant that black with florals and the pops of coral keep the print modern. And it was a summer bargain at only £14.99, so even more of a reason to love it. 

I would love to know how you are getting dresses up for nights out in this sunny weather? Sometimes you just want to throw on shorts and a vest and be done with it, well I do anyway. 
I hope you are loving this weather, it is great to finally be able to make full use of the summer wardrobe, and I will be posting some of my summer work looks this week for you. 

p.s Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram for more pics of my day to day fashions and general love of food, that seems to sneak on there a lot! 

Happy Monday! 




  1. Thanks so much for this post. I have a wedding in the weekend and was debating a white peplum with black pencil skirt - you're convinced me! Unfortunately however it's winter so that means styled with opaque tights, ankle boots and a nice furry coat over top!

    1. Aww, thanks Kelly, glad you enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy the wedding the ankle boots and tight look sounds great! xxxx

  2. Gorgeous outfit! Really love it! I can't rave about peplum tops and midi/pencil skirts enough at the moment, they're both so flattering! Hope you had fun at the races :)
