I love a good statement piece, but usually, I opt for a hot bag or a sparkly necklace.  So, when I saw this black and white Smock Top from Shein,  my first thoughts were, “business in the front, party in the back” and I love a good party in the back, so I had to get this dress.  As a girlie girl, I am all about bows.

This outfit goes perfectly with my new  Laudi Vidni clutch. I attended an industry event for work in May and was able to make my own bag. It was fun to pick out the hardware, fabric for the interior and leathers for the outside of the bag. Yellow isn’t something that I have a lot of in my closet, but I wanted to pick something that would force me to wear a color that I wouldn’t usually wear.

The great thing about this top is super versatile. Here, I chose to pair it with bright colored shorts, but you’ll definitely be seeing me style this top again with a skirt or jeans.

I’m usually hesitant to wear peplum tops because they usually sit right around my tummy area and don’t look flattering. I ordered this top in a 1X and thankfully there was enough room in this top to not make my stomach so prominent.  You can find this Smock top by searching the style ID: 472399 or using this link.

      It’s really cute because you’re aren’t expecting the back to be like that since the front is plain

  2. I love your post! Your outfit is amazing and I’m definitely loving the hair.

      Thanks Maja. I’ve done very few photoshoots with my natural hair so I am trying to embrace it more.

      Thanks so much. I wanted to do a different color pairing versus the traditional black and white with red
