Thankfully it's super versatile and works perfectly for pretty much any look from casual daytime right through to a glamorous evening out.

ZARA Peplum Top

With a catchy blogpost title like this one, I hardly need to write anything else but I’m still going to yabber on about the many, many reasons we all need this sleeveless peplum number in our closet.

The first reason is, it’s adorable!  The fresh, nautical print screams summer and as soon as we have a few consecutive sunny days here in London (I’m the eternal optimist!) I’ll be wearing it continually.  Thankfully it’s super versatile and works perfectly for pretty much any look from casual daytime right through to a glamorous evening out.

Plus I have good news, this gorgeous top is currently on sale in ZARA and now only £7.99!! If you’re US-based you’re in luck they still have it available online (find HERE).  Sadly (although not surprisingly), it’s already sold out on the UK website but according to their “in-store availability” function where you can check stock in your nearest stores, most London ones still have it available in multiple sizes (click HERE to check availability near you).

If you’re unlucky and can’t get your hands on one, I’ve searched high and low for some rather gorgeous alternatives below:

I’m currently a little obsessed with this more glam, evening look which I’ve managed to wear out a couple of times despite the cold weather (although minus the shoes but more about that later!).  I’ve had this denim since I was at school making it about 15 years old!  After sitting unworn in the wardrobe for ages, it’s finally seeing the light of day again as I’m really getting back into wearing denim skirts again.  If you would like to see a blogpost about how these 90s favourites are seriously back on trend and the best ways to style them let me know.

I quickly want to touch on my favourite subject of all… shoes (especially red soled ones)!  I picked up these Christian Louboutin beauties on sale almost 2 years ago.  There is no denying they’re a beautiful pair of shoes!  I love the tricolour palette, delicate cross cross straps and that incredible stiletto heel.  However, if you are a Louboutin fan or looking to treat yourself to a new pair one word of warning, AVOID this style at all costs.  They really pinch and I can’t wear them for more than half an hour before I’m in serious pain! They’re called Gwynitta and are a reoccurring style, I believe they’ve been launched in various different colours over quite a few seasons.  Anyway don’t say I didn’t warn you!
