Livia here, with my first ever blog post on Big Picture Stuff, and first ever post in the blogsphere! EEEK, cross your fingers and wish me luck (maybe hold my hand, too)…

The lovely Vess and Val sweetly invited me to do this collab with them (can’t stop telling them how wonderful they are, probably sick of me by now haha), and also asked me to write posts with the accompanying pictures. So here we go!

Let me start off with an Oh MY GOSH. When the peplum came on trend last year I died and went to heaven… So classy and chic, my love for an emphasised waistline and a woman’s curves was epitomised with a few extra ruffles added to the waist of a top, dress or skirt!

And although the peplum has been slightly overdone now, there are still ways that I’m embracing this extra material around my waist. I am completely loving gigantic, over the top peplums, peplums that lie lower in flippy skirts and dropped waists of dresses, origami peplums, and last but not least, PEPLUM PANTS!

I paired these blue peplum pants (you’ll never guess where from) with a gorgeous beige high neck top, which I could pull together with the blue accents in the leaves of the floral design in the top. It’s personally one of my favourite outfits, with just the right amount of eye capturing blue and preppy style to it, not to mention the unexpected peplum detail on my pants! What do you guys think?

That’s it from me for now, hoping that I did an okay job. Permission to uncross your fingers and unhold my hand and wipe them off (sorry I get sweaty palms). Until next time,

Signing off,

Livia xo
