Pretty in Peplum

Floral peplum top, c/o Sugarlips (sold out, similar here). Lace cardigan, Issi via TJ Maxx. Black BDG Twig High-Rise Jean, Urban Outfitters (on sale!). Mint necklace, Forever 21 (similar). Staten Island clutch in mint, Francesca's. Gold boyfriend watch, Target (similar). Blue t-strap flats, Gap (similar).

     You know those outfits that make you feel like you can take over the world? I'd say this one fits the bill for me. I've been dressing a bit less glamorously lately (not that I'm one for excess anyways) in an effort to let my clothes reflect my life. However, I instantly felt put together when I paired this lovely, perfect peplum top from Sugarlips with my newly acquired high waisted black BDG jeans. I've worn my regular cut black skinny jeans to death so I was looking for a more unique option.  
     As far as fit goes, I was definitely in between sizes in the jeans. The black fabric is somewhat stiff, so I thought I was going to have to size up. The zipper on the size I got, a 24, is a little bit taught, but as a rule, jeans usually stretch with time. The camel toe area (is there anything less glam than detailing this area?) was too big on the 25, though, so I decided to go for the snugger fit as it fit better all around. I'm so excited to channel some serious retro pin up vibes donning the babies with crop tops, and well everything else, this summer. I looked into American Apparel's Easy Jean and I'm still considering snagging a pair of these as well. What are your experiences with high waisted jeans?
