Seeing Spots


{Top: H&M | Jeans: Similar | Shoes: Seychelles | Tote: c/o Questhaven}

Would you believe me if I told you that I bought this top the same day I bought this peplum top? I am like a dog with a chew toy when I find a new trend; I just won’t give it up. But it’s just that I like to commit, that’s all. I don’t have a problem, I promise. I can quit peplum’s at anytime.  

  • Sandy a la Mode

    love that top and your shoes!!!

    That top has been on the top of my To-Buy list for ages, but I can never find it in my H&M store grr :( Oh well, that just means having to pop in that many more times to search and buying lots of consolation pieces ūüėČ Love the way you styled this!

  • emmabasilone

    those shoes are HOT!

    I love red skinnys. You can't go wrong with them or a peplum top. You hit the nail on the head with this outfit. I love it!

  • Beth

    Don't blame you!
    Peplums are so gorgeous.


  • Natali Karppinen

    Beautiful top and shoes! Your style is very inspiring :)

  • Alexa (Alexa Loves Books)

    I'm loving the jeans. And the top is pretty cute! :)

  • Jennifer Rosson

    I love this top I have it too. It rocks! 

  • ClosetCravings

    I like the tote and its functional-everyday style. Plus, it looks like you can fit a lot of girly junk in it. It's always a good when a bag can pretty much go with any outfit too. =)

    I love your top!!!

  • Sarah Harrell

    Oh NOOOOOO the polka dots on your shirt MELTED. This is tragic. Perhaps we should start a foundation and collect donations. What will you do with the money we raise? Probably buy more peplum.

  • Sparkle Fashion Blog

    that top is absolutely gorgeous, love the print and the way it goes with those jeans. btw, great color.


  • Supal

    I swear the H&M's in FL don't carry any of this stuff! I always have the hardest time finding anything H&M you post on here… this is why I'm glad I'm moving to Europe in 10 days — the motherland of H&M

  • Emily V

    Love the cigarette pants! Cute outfit :)

    xx Emily

  • Nat

    Lovely outfit as usual :) Living the top and pants!

  • Natasha

    I've seen another blogger sporting that lovely top. But I can't seem to find it at my local H&M. Maybe it's sold out, or we aren't going to get it in Toronto? Too bad, it's a great top.

  • Liz (26 and Counting)

    Ummm, girl with the same problem here! I think I've bought 5 peplum tops in the last 2 weeks. Including this one!

  • Sara

    I actually just bought this top a few weeks ago! So excited to wear it. Looks great on you!*Enter my giveaway!!*

  • Kacie Ellis

    When you find a trend you love, rock it!!!

  • Eizel Mafnas

    Luved the shoes,  so happy amazon carries them! Have ordered because of you :)

  • Flair byBrandi

    I love this top! Great look! Take care!


  • Jeans and a Teacup

    Really cute top. I tried it on at H&M but it didn't fit me quite right.  I might have to go back and make it fit because I love it!

  • Kate Jones

    That style of top really makes your legs look LONG — i may have to give it a try!! :)¬†

  • Kate Harvey

    Great look! Whenever I click on the links you provide I feel like everything looks much better on you than on the store site! :)

    love the top and the shoes! what can you do, peplum is just so fun!

  • Demi3

    You've been shoe shopping!! This is about the third or fourth post where I've noticed a fantastic new pair of shoes! I am a shoe fanatic so I am loving all the new looks. Oh, and the peplum top with those gorgeous coral jeans aren't too bad either ūüėČ

  • Betsy


  • Jacy Tilton

    Spots look just perfect with your colored pants and together they make for such a fun outfit!


  • Jodi Brown

    Love it!  Krystin over at had this same look today! LOL! Great fashion minds think alike!

  • Laura Whitman

    Those shoes at are SO amazing. And I don't think you have a problem. Unless being awesome is now a problem. ūüėõ


  • Shannon Heart’s

    you always look so amazing in colored denim.  i love your shoes!!!  of course they are Seychelles, my favorite!

  • Krystin Lee

    Hey Girl! Looks like we're blogger twins today :) Love how you styled it!
    xo Krystin

  • Amy Painter

    They have this print in pants too! I was so tempted to get them but I didn't. Unfortunately, no more of this top in my size :( looks great on you though!


  • Sarahann Noel

    Those shoes are PERFECT.

  • Anita

    I love this top, it's so cute, and in fact, the spots remind me of Dalamtians ūüėČ and of course the Disney movie ūüėȬ†
    Beautiful outfit!

    xxx Anita

  • Megan

    The spots remind me of 101 Dalmatians too! No worries, you do not remind me one bit of Cruella DeVille. You'd have to wreck your hair and chainsmoke for 30 years before you even got close to that mess. 

    This outfit is stunning! Love the black/white/red combo :)


  • Heidi

    Such a cute top. -Heidi

  • Gina

    Those shoes are amazing!

  • info

    Diggin' the shoes and the veiled reference to 101 Dalmatians : ) 


  • workitChristine

    luckily you won't need to quit… at least not for a while. 

  • Librarian on the Run

    Love this color combo! SO glad you show your labels tag now РI thought your pants were orange!? Now I see they are red! A big "Thank you" for the labels Рfrom the orange/red colorblind librarian :) 

  • Ester Dur√£es

    wow this is such an incredible outfit, Kendi! love the pop of colour from the pants and the polka dot pattern from your top!

  • Erin Michelle

    If something works for you, why not buy it in every combination possible? I love this printed peplum. 


  • Grace Huang

    very cute, very you~


  • christen

    love the shoes! 


  • Sydney

    I love the way your hair is blowing in the third pic. Cute pants!

  • Jackie Saffert

    I saw that top on a different blog today and I LOVE IT.  I love it because it's peplum (I have an obsession with the trend, too) and because it's $14.95.  $14.95.  I had to write it twice because I almost couldn't believe it.  Note to self: Go to H & M as soon as possible.

  • Glam And Eggs

    I just bought a peplum top from H&M last weekend and I am wearing it today. Peplum maka da world go round. :)

  • Kristin

    So cute. I couldn't find that top at the H&M near me :( Love the look!


  • Nikell

    Love the combo! Those shoes are super cute. I'm the same way…when I find a trend I'm stuck on it.

  • Kayla

    Fresh outfit!! That top is great.

  • Happinessatmidlife

    Looking great as always.  I finally took the plunged & bought 2 peplum top yesterday too! I think I need to stop there in case I go over board with this trend.

    BTW, I LOVE you shoes!!

  • Seekingstyleblog

    The peplum top looks great on you!
    xo Jennifer

  • Amy B.

    Love the combo

  • Girl by the Lake

    this outfit it awesome.  (and i'm loving the new layout btw!!!!)

  • Priya Pappu

    How much does my life suck when I don't live an accessible distance to an H&M? So much. Can we call this "dalmation peplum"? LOVE it. Also, omg, I have worn these shoes before!!!! My sister has them and I borrowed them in Vegas, they are so so so great and also so very out of my price range. I'll add them to my "list of Kendi's clothes that I am jealous of"

    perfectly priya

  • Teodora

    I love "spots" with red. I hope you like this trend a little longer:)

    I'm in love with every aspect of this outfit. I was already¬†drooling, and then I got to the shoes, and I give up. No one can be as awesome and stylish as you! ūüėČ

  • Lily Marek

    I love it! I actually just bought the skinny pants in the same print. They may be a little less easy to wear than that lovely peplum but I couldn't resist!

  • Andrea

    the shoes are great!

    Love this top!!! It looks so good with your figure !

  • Caroline Goldingham

    I NEED a pair of pants this colour! I also love the subtle peplum of this top, not as hard as some of the others out there.

  • Jaclyn

    I don't think you should quit peplums any time soon. You look great in them. Love this outfit, as usual! 

  • She Dabbles

    This top fits you so nicely! I tried it on when I was in there and sadly, not so nice. I feel that way about polka dot pants…people can try to pry them from my cold, dead fingers :)


  • Cassandra Too

    I like this outfit! The styling between the prints and color of the pants is sooooo cute! ūüėÄ Love it!
