#TheMessyProject Round 2


Its baaaaackkk!
The Messy Project


If you're new & have never heard of #TheMessyProject you can check out the all the info HERE but here's just a quick little intro -



so the top that I got for this months project even I was stepping outside of the box. I usually wouldn't even look at these type of tops because I didn't think I could pull it off, plus it seems short & I have a weird thing with tops being too short. But since this is a project to step outside of your comfort zone & express your creative side I took the plunge....& omg I am obsessed! The fashion term for this type of top is called "Peplum" but I like to think of it as a cupcake! So here's the top all the girls got -


Its white & lacy & comes out towards the bottom. I decided to stay with the fanciness of the top & dress it up. Here is what I did -



I paired the top with my silky khaki color shorts. I love these shorts because they're great for those super hot days when you have to work & just wanna stay cool. They have a little shine to them as well....& the best part - there's pockets!




Then I added my sparkly pointy toed heels to give the outfit a much more dressier feel....& my hair in these pictures is a complete mess, no joke i am on day 8 here...



To complete the look I added a statement necklace. Because the top was plain I was able to dress it up with a big diamond necklace that matched perfectly with the sparkle in the shoes. I didn't want to add too much more since the main points of my outfit are the shoes & necklace so i topped it off with a gold watch .

Top: Forever 21 :: Shorts: Trouve :: Shoes: Vintage : Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs :: Necklace: Forever 21


So what do you guys think? Would you try this type of top? How do you think you would style it? I'd love to hear your thoughts....

It's so funny you mention about it being short, because that's the EXACT reason why I chose to tuck it in. I have a weird thing with shirts hitting me right at my waistline.
I LOOOOOOVE your shoes. Like, love them. If they were flats I'd be all over em. :)
Thanks so much for letting me participate, I had a blast! :)
XOXO

You're so cute! Adorable outfit and I LOVE the necklace!

Holly said...

You look adorable per the usual! I too have an issue with tops being too short. But you pulled this one off so well! I'm scared of the peplum...I just can't commit. Your outfit makes me want to try this trend though!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

I love what you did with the shirt! Very classy and fun. I haven't tried peplum yet because I am worried it will be too short for my longass torso. Going to check out the other girls right now!

J and A said...

Love your look. The shorts are so great with it and the shoes are awesome! Very classy!!

Nikki said...

That's so cute!! Love it!

Melissa said...

LOVE the top... I am obsessed with just about anything lace lol. I would definitely keep it classy and a little dressy as well, after all, it's a pretty peplum lace top :)

You look gorgeous!

Jess @ Blonde Meets World said...

Definitely not a top I would normally pick out, but I actually love it! (I'm also a huge fan of lace recently.)

Jenna said...

So cute Kelly! I could never pull off peplum, thanks to my long torso, but it looks amazing on you! And I love that you paired it with those shorts. The whole outfit looks sophisticated but fun at the same time! I'm already excited to see what you come up with next month :) xoxo

Finally online ... I love the way you paired this and took pics by the tennis court, very prep and country club!

I'm oddly shaped so I hope the shirt I get fits well, or else I just better accessorise well ;)
