I have been itching to wear my new peplum tops from Mango, but the weather makes it hard to step outside (or even into the office) sleeveless. Enter the turtleneck. With the black on black layering, the two create the perfect turtleneck peplum combination. The classic DVF belt and the lace slingbacks add an additional layer of femininity to the outfit. Before making my first peplum purchase, I was a little hesitant about testing out the ladylike look because of the extra fabric added to the midsection. However, I've learned overtime that the peplum can actually do wonders in helping to create a flattering hourglass silhouette.

I presume that you are all a little tired of my head-to-toe black and grey ensembles. As much as I try to shift away from darker shades, I have developed a deep attachment to black and grey pieces since last fall. It’s now my go-to shade for work, but my hope is that it will change the second it warms up. If it helps, I’ve added two lavender tops to my closet!
