The Tiny Heart: Coral Peplum Top + Lace Shorts

8.14.2013

Coral Peplum Top + Lace Shorts




Top-Forever 21 (exact one), Shorts-c/o Chicnova, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (very similar), 
Sandals-Target, Sunglasses-Macy's

See all the buttons down the back of my peplum top? I can't actually get this shirt on/off myself. Yep, learned that the hard way in the Forever 21 dressing room. Really thought I could leave one or two buttons done and still try it on. Noooope, could not get the thing over my head (even though I tried to squeeze myself into it).

Once I got it over my head, then came the task of buttoning it so I could see if it actually fit. Pretty sure I sprained muscles I didn't even know I had trying to reach around and button it. By that time, I'd broken out into a sweat and was ready to just take a nap. 

So, until the dogs can learn how to use their paws like fingers, I can only wear this top when my hubby is home to help me in/out of it!

  10. Love this peplum on you! Hahaha that's always so awkward. I can never zip myself into anything, and so I just wing it.

    Have a great day!

  26. Ha ha! Sometimes clothes can be so difficult. I ordered a top once and tried it on and got stuck in it. I couldn't get the stupid thing off and waited for my hubby to get home to help me. You look so cute though! I love this look.

  29. What a perplexing outfit, Sharon. But your write-up did make me laugh. I think that was your point, right? I hate to break out into a sweat in a dressing roooooom, ick. I'm not posting tomorrow cuz I've been 'undertheweather' so do you do your hop onto Friday? If so I'll link up on Friday? Yes?

  37. This top is so cute too bad it's so tough to get on and off. If I have a hard time in the dressing room, I don't buy it. I hate working up a sweat trying to put on or taking off a top.

  40. Those shorts make your legs look really long! Not a fan of the fit of the top on you, it looks really big. But I do love the back of it.
