Slimming Chambray Peplum Top this Summer

Budget Friendly Chambray Peplum Top

One of my most flattering tops for a rectangle-shape body, is the peplum style. Starting at the top with the ruffle sleeves, it creates some width to help give the illusion of an hourglass figure. The ruched bodice brings the curves in and is super slimming. I feel like it looks good regardless if you are smaller or larger busted. The peplum bottom flares out to complete the hourglass shape. I grabbed this on sale for under $25. It’s a great summer workwear buy!

My best pants buy so far for the summer. Coming under $40. The material for these pants is made with a 2-way stretch so it’s super comfortable for work. Plus the fit is a relaxed type of fit. It comes in five colors, I have it in navy (as shown here), white and grey. The length of the pants is perfect for us shorter gals. It’s wrinkle-resistant so maintenance is easy!

Cardigans are a staple in my closet for casual work outfits. During the summer season, I’m always on the lookout to replace my white cardigans. Nordstrom has a basic pima cotton/viscose blend white cardigan. It is a button-down the front and perfect for the summer because it is very lightweight. See more details on the cardigan.

Here is a pair of new summer denim slip-on sandals. The top material is comfortable and cute with the patchwork design. There’s minimal padding on the front footbed but still comfortable. The 3 1/2 inch wedge heel height makes it easy to walk in. You can style it with any jeans outfit, or pair it with white pants for a pop of color lastly, add it to a summer dress for a boho style. Price is slightly higher than my normal price point.
