Breezy Days: Would You Still Buy It?

Would You Still Buy It?

February 25, 2013
When this top first came onto our store, I instantly fell in love with it.
Stripes, navy, peplum, and some cute 3/4 sleeves.
It'll be sooo versatile.

I tried it on & him-hawed.
The peplum hit a little lower than expected, vertical stripes make a person visually look wider, and the top kinda flared out...
I feared that people would think I've got a bun in the oven!!
{totes not the case if anyone was wondering}
I can usually count on my mom or Ryan to give me a straightforward opinion.
Ryan loves the classic look & my mom always encourages me to try new styles, so it's fun to see what each of them say when I try out a new look.
Ryan loved it and my mom warned me that I may look a little preggo...so what do you do?

I was so conflicted. It's cute as all get out, but it's a slightly different shape than what I usually lean towards for my body type.
Would you still buy it?
You already know the end to this story, I caved it and purchased it regardless.
 I just couldn't bear the thought of leaving it in the store for someone else to snag up.
Even though I'm sure this top isn't the most flattering item I own, I fell in love with it!
Do you have any pieces of clothing in your closet like that?
Items you'll purchase despite what anyone else says??

I think it is adorable on you! But I can totally understand why you were unsure. I tend to be unsure of things that hit higher, on me I feel like they make my hips look big. Who knows, I'm weird :)

girl, you don't look preggers at all. the top is equally classic *and* trying new things. i like my peplums a little more structured, but the stripes and sleeves are perfection on that. i think it would look soo cute with a pencil skirt and your chartreuse cardigan!

The top looks adorable on you! Love it!!! My family always makes fun of the clothes that I wear because I have a little bit more funky style than my family's very classic style. If you love it, WEAR IT!!! :)

I think the top is really cute!! And if you think it is a little too flowy you can always take it in a little. I love it though!
