From Day To Night x Kurt Geiger

Kurt Geiger Blog Collaboration 2017I can't remember when I first wore a peplum, but whenever it was, it was a great decision.  And now, my love for the style has reached a new high, resulting in double-peplum styling.  Is that enough?  Probably not.  But before I consider options to bring in a third peplum (oops), I've been looking at ways of styling one of my old favourites.  This white shirt was skating on thin ice, close to being throw out of my wardrobe - until a faux leather peplum crop caught my eye.  Combine the double-peplum with a love for athleisure, and a rather gorgeous new tote by Kurt Geiger, and you've got a look that moves comfortably from day to night...

UK Fashion and Personal Style BloggerI love combining the ordinary with the slightly unexpected.  In this case, a plain white shirt with a peplum and layered with another faux leather peplum, sports leggings featuring mesh lattice detailing, and a nude manicure broken up with black dots.  But the true 'hero piece' of this look has to be the Violet Horizontal Tote by Kurt Geiger.  The soft leather comprises light pebbling and oversized design, and the relaxed style is so appealing - I can't be the only one who feels as though they have one million and one things to carry?!  I can see the tote becoming a favourite of mine when travelling thanks to its generous size, though for now I'm marvelling at how easily it can be taken from day-to-night on a more regular basis.  Along with carrying everything ready for the evening - from a change of shoes and mongolian fur scarf to extra jewellery and perfume -  it looks ridiculously stylish.  Seriously, can we talk about this perfect raw-cut leather?!

Hold up your hand if you love pins!  Funnily enough, I wasn't a huge fan of pins until this year.  Recently, I did a massive 180 and fell in love with the beauties after discovering the Biography Pin range at Astley Clarke.  At first glance, a teeny-tiny Four Leaf Clover stole my heart, although after seeing the brand's images of entire pockets covered with pins, I doubt my obsession will end here. Anyway, to avoid being the only tiny-gold-pin-fanatic I know, I've listed a few other gorgeous Astley Clarke designs below for you to check out!

This tote has actually solved a dilemma for me, as I planned to get through a (huge) backlog of magazines while travelling to France next week, and had no idea how I was going to transport them - problem solved!  Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this outfit - do you prefer the look by day, or the subtle changes that take it to night?

With love,

Gabrielle x

  1. I really adore pins, my nan gave me my first one and I'd wear them on hats. Raw cut leather is a personal favourite and it can be so beautiful when done right as you've shown here. I cannot get enough of the tote, though. Both lavish and practical as well! Wish you a lovely weekend and safe travelling, Gabrielle. xx/Madison

  2. That faux leather peplum is stunning dear! I love peplums too and I like how you styled it in this perfect black and white outfit! *-*

  3. I love the combination of the two peplums with athleisure pants and boots. I am so inspired by the way you mixed pieces that I wouldn't automatically think of putting together. And good move on keeping that peplum blouse!

  7. Such a gorgeous styling! That peplum top is certainly eye-catching, I really like how you styled it over the white shirt, it makes it stand out even more. By keeping this outfit black and white, you made it more elegant and very timeless. This combo looks great both with sneakers and the boots. Interesting how easy it can be to transfer a day look into a more dressed up (or evening) one. You look stunning dear!


    Lately I've been opting for tote bags as well. They're such a great solution when we have stuff to carry! This tote bag is certainly very elegant. I think that a bag like this one can be styled in a number of ways...as you have showed here.

  8. Ooh I can't possibly pick between day or night here, you are most definitely rocking both Gabrielle! I definitely need to take inspiration from you as I would never have thought to combine a peplum with a crisp white shirt - I definitely need to get more creative!

  17. This is fantastic Gabrielle! I'm a little late to the peplum game, but I so get it now! I've never thought of combining two though, but you've done it here to flawlessly. Both versions of the look are perfect, though I think I prefer the "day" look, just because it lets the peplum shine a bit more.

    This is a lovely post!

  23. Gabrielle you always look so chic and glamorous! Can I just borrow your wardrobe indefinitely please :) !? I remember when Peplums were all the rage a few years ago - I think I bough about 10 Peplum tops...I absolutely adore them as they are so flattering whatever shape and size you are. I can't wait to get them out for Spring/Summer xx

  24. Gabrielle I'm dying over this layered look! I've been wanting to wear something like this and bought a top from Zara two years ago online but it was too tight on me! Love the white shirt under the black peplum - you're such a fashion inspo!! <3

  31. I've had quite a few pieces that I was on the verge of getting rid of, but something about them would inspire me to hold on for just a little while and most of the times, I've been happy with the decision. Either it was a bit of a trendier piece that came back around or I found new ways of styling it that made me feel as though it were a fresh new piece. That said, it was wise to hold onto that shirt, the peplum detail is so pretty and it's one of those shirts that can be easily dressed up or down; I love the way you've added another peplum piece to it, adding more drama and dimension. I'm also loving that tote, it's gorgeous! It's the perfect size and I love the fact that it has no hardware, it's very sleek. Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    Hope you are having a great start to the week!
