Playful » Florals with Peplum Skirt

by dietingfashion on May 7, 2012

What a weekend! I hope you had an eventful Saturday and Sunday as I did. Two Weddings and two wedding receptions. I’m still stuffed with good food and GREAT cake. I love wedding cakes.

I have not sort through the wedding photos but I hope to get to it soon. I tried to remember to take photos of everything. It is very difficult when you are having fun and forgetting all about photographing.

When I got married, ummm, hummm …. years ago, many things were different. Invitations cost an arm and a leg yet very plain designs. Nowadays, invitations are a bit less expensive yet with gorgeous designs. A friend found her invitations at Hobby Lobby and printed it all by herself. I was blown away at such pretty and elegant invitations.

Also cake designing has taken off at an unbelievable level. The presentation and decorations are so unique and oh so beautiful. I remember my cake as buttercream with strawberries inside yet it was very plainly decorated. My cousin at the last minute took some fresh flowers and pinned it to my cake to create more color and dimensions. Thank goodness for her quick thinking.

A date night look with a romper and a Zara Floral peplum skirt. I did not like the Peplum Dress by Zara (from this post), however this skirt is so cute and fun. You can see the romper here. The romper has these cute petal print that goes very well with the colorful florals of the skirt.

Hi Helen,

Thanks for stopping by my blog…I love your peplum skirt, saw it Zara but didn’t pick it up, now I regret it…also love that you took risk by mixing patterns, you did a great job! And in regards to your comment, I think you have amazing legs (and I’m not just trying to be nice), it’s not too skinny, just the perfect shape and is very tone! 🙂

I love the mix of patterns. The skirt peplum was a good choice. I like it much better than the peplum dress/

I appreciate your effort but your not quite there. You need something significant to anchor the look.

Glad you ate the cake!! I know a lot of people who don’t even eat it! You look super cute in that dress. I have a necklace that I am giving away on my blog, and I think you would love it!

Hope you had a great Tuesday 🙂
