Sometimes a gal just needs something extra dramatic! Peplum+flowy high-low skirt? Check. Statement earrings+statment necklace? Check. Midi skirt+ankle strap pumps? Check. Sequins just for fun? Check!

This outfit started with the skirt and the thought that perhaps a peplum would work with it. I'm not sure how I feel about the combo, but I think it at least looks alright. This particular peplum top was one I had to purchase for a wedding outfit last spring, and it's not "my perfect peplum" if you know what I mean -- I'd rather it be lace instead of plain stretch ponte, and cream instead of white -- so it rarely gets worn. One thing I do like about it, though, is that the waist seam is ~1" below my natural waist; since I'm short waisted and IT, I feel like that helps balance out my torso proportions a bit (if I'm highlighting my waist, it's almost always a point a little lower than my natural waist).

Kept with the yellow theme and accessorized with gold and lots of it: giant hoop earrings, cream/gold droplet necklace, and sequined clutch. Plus a few slightly-off-from-yellow things: rose gold watch, peachy sunnies, and soft orange lip gloss. I chose my gray suede pumps to add some extra color interest (it picks up a bit on the lavender in the skirt), and left my hair down for extra drama and contrast.

Have to say that even though it's a bit much, I really did enjoy the hoop/necklace combo ^^
