Peplum Tanks and Pencil Skirts With Pink Handbags

For something a little different, I paired some peplum tanks and pencil skirts together. It's not the first time I've worn the combo, and I'm wearing it in two different ways below. For a casual work from home day and for a day in the office.

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace (new purchase)
Tank: gifted Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

I was excited to give my new tank a wear! My mum kindly picked this up for me in Kmart when we were browsing together. It's perfect for summer, and I could see it working with a pencil skirt and blazer or plain pants as well as with jeans and shorts. Really looking forward to wearing this more! Decided to pair it with my pink Balenciaga city bag to bring out the pink bird print.

The necklace is new too, I picked it up at Jeanswest recently during one of their sales.

The grey pencil skirt was a great neutral to wear it with, although I did wish I'd taken a blazer - the rain set in for most of the day and it was a little chillier than I expected. The black ballet flats were a good choice for the rain with the rubber soles.

Tank: Zalora basics ruffle hem tank in black
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony  (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Similar outfit to the one above, but I wore this pencil skirt and peplum tank combo for a much more casual day so I dressed it down a little with the Converse. The jersey material of this pencil skirt is a great relaxed fit with Converse, and I've worn them together in the past.

Had the daycare drop off in the morning and then working from home before doing the pickup and taking my son to his appointment, so this comfortable outfit was perfectly suited for the day.

I really liked the way this pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag worked with the neutral black and grey too.

The fun chook print scarf was a last minute addition, but I felt it worked well too add an extra bit of interest to my outfit, and a little touch of warmth in the cooler weather. The outfit seemed a bit plain without it!

Peplum Tanks Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Peplum tanks, like any other kind of tanks, are so easy to wear with pencil skirts. You can dress them up for the office or dress them down for a quieter day at home. If you're in a formal business environment, you might not get away with a peplum tank as you have to wear a button up or collared shirt, but for a business casual environment like my office this outfit formula works perfectly.

  20. This is such a pretty combination. A pencil skirt is a classic and a peplum top is both elegant and fun. I love the result of combining them. It was so sweet of your mom to get it for you.

    I hope you have a wonderful week.
