Curves Around the World: Peplum

Hello Beauties!!! 
So it's the the middle of the week again and you all know what that means...Another "Curves Around the World" themed post. This week's theme is "Peplum," well let me tell you a little secret, I don't like peplums. Well it's not that I don't like them, it's more I don't like how they look on me. I've tried so many on within the few years that it's been in style but have always hated the way it looked on me. But that doesn't mean I wasn't going to do this theme, I decided once again to step out of my comfort zone and try once again. 
Like I said above I am not a big fan of peplums on myself, so that means I didn't have one to use for this theme, so that means I had to go shopping. I tried a few on and once again I didn't like how they looked on me, but I finally saw this one at Jcpenny. By the way if you haven't been to Jcpenny's they have really cute brands like I heart Ronson, Nicole by Nicole Miller and Bisou Bisou(mines Bisou Bisou). But yeah I decided not to try it on because I thought I might not like it so I decided to take a risk and just buy it. What attracted me to the top was that it was black and white and you all know I love black and white and plus it was on sale with an extra percent off. 
{top:Jcpenny} {leggings:Forever 21+} {shoes:Target} {necklace:H&M}
So today when I put on the top I kind of like it, but I'm really sure. I'm actually thinking I might return the top because I'm not sure if I really like it. That's one thing I'm trying to do when I shop, buying things that I really love because I have so many things in my closet that I buy just because and I end up never wearing it.
But yeah what do you think, should I keep the peplum or return it? 
So I wanted to show a close up of this necklace that I got from H&M for only $2.50 it was from one of those sales where you get an extra 50% off from the already reduced price, I love those kind of sales. But yeah I have been wanting to wear this necklace and I thought it would go really well with this top. I really fell in love with this necklace when I saw it and I love the pops of color. 
So changing subjects, today when I was getting ready to take these pictures I reached for a sweater and your probably thinking so? But it's actually in the 80's here in California and it's hot. But I've been so used to covering my arms that today thinking of showing my arms again kind of brought me back to when I was so uncomfortable to showing them off and the sweater is like my safety blanket. But then I had to remind myself of how far I've come with loving myself and as you can see I didn't wear my sweater. I just remind you if your like me and it took a long time for you to love yourself that you can have some moments you forget but you just need to remind yourself that you are Beautiful! Sorry for the small little side story but I thought I would share if someone that follows me happens to read this and has ever felt the same way. Remember loving yourself can be a tough journey but you can do it! :)

  1. The peplum top and that FAB statement necklace are too cute Nina!

  2. love peplums but not on me. i don't have the right look in them!

    1. I felt the same way but after this one, I think i might have changed my mind.

  3. we share the same feeling - you look great though regardless .... im more inlove with your pants. i wish i had a skirt or pants in that print for this winter. that neckpiece is also amazing :)

    1. Thanks Thulie, I do love my pants too, they are actually leggings so they are so comfortable.

  4. Don't you dare return this top!!!!! It looks soooooooooooooooo good on you!!!!!!!!!!! I love this whole outfit! Very funky!

    1. You will be happy to know i did not return it, my friends convinced me to keep it. :)

  5. I have to remind myself that I don't always need to cover my arms as well! It's hard for me because I just don't care for my upper arms that much and jackets can be a bit of a security blanket.

    The peplum looks nice on you, but if you aren't comfortable in it or feeling 100% about it, then I say definitely take it back. It's good to challenge ourselves, but ultimately, there's no point of having a piece in your wardrobe that you don't love or that you don't wear.

    Love the necklace!!!


    1. Yeah I feel the same way Cassie, sweaters and jackets can be my security blanket as well. But yeah I decided to keep the peplum. hehe

  6. you really should wear peplum more often. you look gorgeous!
