I recently ventured into many new-to-me trends with one blouse purchase. This top covers peplums, floral and bell sleeves, with my own maximal lite by combining with the previously purchased embroidered pants.

I have shied away from peplums because "who needs extra fabric at the hip area?" but this is soft and flowy and I got a few compliments on this outfit.

I liked it enough to experiment with a NAS peplum, (posted in a different thread looking for thoughts) but don't like it as much as I like this. Different neckline, fabric and cut - the jury is still out on that one.

BTW shout out to the Clarks as super comfy! I have fussy feet and mostly wore very "functional" shoes until YFL convinced me there are more attractive options for most foot problems. I have many wardrobe areas to upgrade, but I have learned here that footwear is key.

I am not much of an accessorizer and would welcome ideas - probably not to much as the top and pants have a lot going on? I generally don't do purses, but perhaps need to build a small purse wardrobe.
