Yellow Floral Peplum Top for Work or Play

A Love Note to Bright Colors, Featuring this Yellow Floral Peplum Top

It’s really easy to roll with a very neutral, very dark palate for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love my denim, my tan vests, and my grey boots and booties. These are crucial to getting me through the fall and winter. I love throwing in unexpected bright colors, though. This cheerful, yellow floral peplum top is a new starring piece in my closet.

Yellow is one of my favorites for fall. It’s the last color the leaves change before they fall off the trees, so it’s very seasonal.  It’s flattering on all skin tones, too. It almost makes you glow as if you were living in July again. This little yellow floral peplum top has embroidered white flowers on it. I couldn’t think of a more cheerful pattern.

I’m wearing it here with a pair of white jeans I scored at Goodwill. They are great for work, but sleek enough for a night out. You’ve seen me wear them in this post for a day-to-night transition.  I picked up these simple little mules at Mod & Soul in Richmond, but I’ve linked to some similar pairs below. Of course, my trusty pink bag is never far from my side unless I’m reaching for a small cross-body bag on the weekend.

I was so smitten with this top, I found a few more that I’d love to layer with for the fall. They’re under $50, and everything is under $100, as always. Shop them all below. Keep scrolling to see more adorable shots of this easy going yellow floral peplum top.
