Wardrobe Diaries: Pastel Play Day




















Peplums are all the rage these days and for good reason too. They are so feminine and universally flattering, I can't see why anyone would not like them. I would not exist as a blogger had I not bought my Alice + Olivia peplum dress back in January, but more on that in a later post.

My husband and I took the girls to an indoor play center this weekend. I wanted to wear something comfortable while chasing the kids around yet sophisticated enough for dinner afterwards. The silk scarf and metallic accents paired with the peplum top gave the outfit a polished look. And my coral toe flats were the perfect finishing touch.

The kids had such a great time that we ended up staying all night and dined at Taco Bell haha. Summer always seems to make one forget one's plans and just live in the moment.

You make for such a fabulous looking mom! Haha, seriously, you look chic yet perfectly capable for dealing with kids all day.
The scarf, flats, and bag are the perfect complements for that top and shorts!

Happy Tuesday to all! This cold I had a little stuck at home yesterday, I have felt a little affected by the weather, so yesterday I was at home. My daughter is also in full recovery and care of it is otherwise, without clutch being at home gives us the opportunity to share a lot and talk, she talks as much as I love to hear it.

Gorgeous shirt & scarf! And your kids are just too cute!
