Happy Monday! I hope you had a delightful weekend and are ready for a new week. I usually want the weekends to last longer. However, I’m happy this week has already started since Pope Francis will arrive here, Washington, D.C., tomorrow. Consider me one of his many big admirers.

Now, on another note, today’s look features a peplum bustier that I immediately fell for when I saw it at a Zara store last month. This top’s perennial style has positioned it among my favorite pieces, and you can bet I’ll keep it in my closet for years to come. I’m deeply attracted to this off-the-shoulder top since you can easily create stylish outfits with it. I simply combined the top with a pair of wide-leg pants, added soft-tone sandals and a clutch, and -voilà!- an elegant look was completed. If you prefer a casual and chic outfit, just wear another top underneath and some skinny jeans or leather leggings. There are countless options for wearing this peplum top and I’m planning to show you a few of them.

As always, thank you very much for visiting!

Have a nice week!

    Dear Danielle,
    you look very gorgeous and elegant! I like this fashionable look with this cute peplum bustier and the beautiful wide-leg pants.
    This off-the-shoulder top and the pants fit your delicate and beautiful body very nice. I love to see this fashionable look at you! And I like it very much, that you combined those black pieces with fawn sandals and a fawn clutch. That looks very chic!
    Have a nice and happy week and enjoy your time with Pope Francis :-*
