I am nearing the end of my first week of summer and to be honest it's been an exhausting one. With my hubby out of town there has been a little extra on my plate. Then we've been doing swim lessons everyday and a ton of other activities for Claire like the summer reading program, picnic story time at the library, a game class, and strawberry picking! (As a side note, she has been sleeping so well!) With all that running around, I've been going with easy outfits like jeans or shorts and a top. These white jeans go with everything so they get pulled out often. Yes, I do wear white with my daughter. Yes, it does get dirty and almost always comes out in the wash. I actually think I have more issues with my colored clothing.

This time I paired them with my new striped peplum top from SheIn. When peplum first started trending a few years back I tried it and found it did not work for me at all. I have a very straight up and down figure without much waist definition. Peplum places an emphasis on the smallest part of your waist and I felt that actually made me look larger since I don't really have a waist. This style of peplum is less fitted, more relaxed, and more flattering in my opinion. It also has a casual feel compared to the older style of peplum. All in all a perfect top for a shorts or jeans look, especially at less than $15!

  3. Aw, love the picture with you and your little one- super cute! I completely agree with you on the wearing white- way more dirty coloured clothes, mostly because I know it can be hid so I'm not as careful as when I'm wearing white.

  6. She is just a little doll! I hope your husband is back in soon too and YAY for her sleeping well! I love this peplum top and it's nice that it light in color- it has been SO hot here I've been leaning towards lighter fabrics.

  7. I've had a couple peplums that I like, but I've decided it's like every other piece of clothing---it just depends! Some look better than others, and it's a fun silhouette. At first, I thought no way do I need to make my hips look bigger, but I think that's not the case!
    It's nice to hear you say you wear white---it amazes me the amount of women who say they won't wear it because of getting it dirty!

  8. Aww, look at your adorable little mini me! So stylin' in those shades :) I love that peplum top--the fabric looks so lightweight and perfect for summer. Your summer sounds fun but busy--I bet she is sleeping well! I've been trying to take advantage of all the fun summer activities for kids as much as I can too.

  11. You're making me want to find a good pair of white denim! I really dislike shopping for pants/jeans, though. When I find a good pair, I love wearing them...it's the finding them that I dislike! You and your daughter both look gorgeous! It sounds like y'all are having such a fun summer!!

  13. I love this outfit!! I've definitely felt the same way about peplum (i also dont have much definition to my waist) so a looser fitting peplum sounds great! Ill have to check out this top. Thanks for sharing!

  14. I wanted to get this top -- in fact, it sat on my cart for a few days. But I decided at the last minute to not get it because of some reviews saying that it kept showing off some tummy. You looked good in it though, so I am having a ton of regret right now. Is it true to size?

    1. I am typically a size small, but order a size medium in SheIn items. I actually got this one in a size large and it fit perfectly, so it does run small in my opinion. It's shorter in length than I am used to with tops, but it wouldn't show my stomach unless I raised both hands. For reference, I am 5'5". Hope that helps!

  24. Peplums and Sheela don't quite go together for the identical reasons you listed, Laura. So now, seeing you in one, looking fresh and fine (my 17 year old is cringing as she's reading what I typed GRIN), is making me rethink things. And speaking of rethinking, I can't recall if I wore or avoided white when Eve was younger. Which makes me love your matter-of-fact statement even more - yes, I wear white with my daughter, and yes it comes off in the washer, for the most part. I'd rather have stained clothes than any day than miss making a memory :) and please do come join my link-up? I'd love to have you, Laura xoxo

  29. Sounds like a very full and fun summertime schedule! This is a cute look and I like the more relaxed peplum top. I have yet to try a peplum top with pants or jeans. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back next week.
