Playful » Florals with Peplum Skirt

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.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. Loving Your page!! New follow from Blog Hop!! Definitely showing you some love across the social networks 🙂

    xo, Jersey Girl
