Two of my current favorite things – this feminine and romantic White Peplum Camisole Crochet Top from Zaful (and if you haven’t already, check out my previous post on another white blouse I love from Zaful) and the CORA series Zebrawood & Turquoise watch from Jord Wood Watches. And needless to say, they both went with me on my vacation to New York and Europe last month, and of course, they were both on repeat! 🙂
A romantic white top is a must in every woman’s wardrobe (thank you for nodding your head), add peplum to the mix and you have a top-to-die-for. This particular peplum top from Zaful though is slightly different from the other peplums I own – peplum tops generally add volume to the hips and make your waist appear smaller but in this case it fits well at the chest and flares all the way from the waist down (I think it makes the top more glamorous). I am totally obsessed with the neckline, and the criss-cross straps, but the crochet is what makes the top look fairy-tale-like (or so I think ;)). I had to wear this to strut around the romantic streets of the Greek islands with its whitewashed buildings and narrow cobbled streets adorned with bougainvilleas.
While it is so easy to style this top and you could go about it a hundred different ways, I chose to wear a cobalt blue asymmetrical mini-skirt to match the decor of the island. As you will agree, gold is to white as turquoise is to cobalt blue – match made in heaven, and hence were obviously my go-to jewelry and cool watch to take this outfit to the next level. And turquoise being my favorite color, it was a no brainer and I went with my Capri Convertible Open Collar Necklace from my Chloe and Isabel boutique, one of my all time favorites. Show me a piece that can be worn different ways, front and back, with or without the pendant and I am sold!
As for the watch, I think that this unique Zebrawood and Turquoise watch was made for me (and for my love for Turquoise color!). The cool turquoise tones of the CORA series is perfectly balanced by the warm Zebrawood grain. As Jord Wood Watches says, it’s indeed “TINY LITTLE PIECES OF PERFECTION…” I also love what the brand stands for, as it reflects so much of my own personality: “TELLING MORE THAN TIME – The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”
