Look Book: Stripes & Peplum

Say hello to my new favourite top. I seriously can't believe it took me so long to jump on the peplum trend... and in stripes no less, double win!! Lately, I've been wearing & loving the look of pencil skirts - I'm foreseeing they'll be a major wardrobe staple of mine come this fall! It's such a fun silhouette to play with, and I'd love to add this one & this oneto my wardrobe. Pretty darn cute, right?!

I used to shy away from pencil skirts a little because I felt like they were too reveling, showing off my every bulge. Gulp! But, I've been really disciplined with my diet and exercise plan this summer, read: super healthy, no starving here. In fact, I'm following the Weight Watchers program and it's been great, it's helped me loose those pesky 10 pounds. So... that's definitley helped me find some extra confidence for trying different looks. Yay! What's your take on pencil skirts?!

This week I've noticed a few leaves starting to hit the ground (I'm secretly getting excited!!) but our temperatures have continued feeling warm & summery. It's been heaven! Martin & I are still out gallivanting in our shorts and hanging on to the last of our summer days... barbequing delicious meals together, going for long windy forested drives (my fave) and watching the sunset from our patio. Hah, we're so predictable, right?! Hope your Friday is terrific, friends!!
