TREND ALERT | My Beloved, Scallops.

To my dearest:

Let’s talk about a recent trend obsession of mine, shall we? The scallop hem! Oh gosh, I absolutely adore it so so much. I’ve been going around all season, collecting all things scallop-y! From flats, to bags, absolutely everything. But, let’s back track a little and focus on just the scallop hem for today, shall we?

Scallop Hems are adorable. They peaked in popularity in the roaring 20s and again in the 50s. They never really left us, because they’re back and have BEEN back! Look at how popular the Chloe Scallop Hem Flats are! And for a good reason too! Scallop hem makes for an effortless chic on simple designs!

My pick of the day, is this cute one piece playsuit or “romper” from H&M. It came in Burgundy Red or Black. I chose this Burgundy Red for the subtle pop of color. I love the chiffon fabric and open back detail. The design is quite simple, but when paired with the scallop hem, it makes it much more unique – and I really like that.

I adorned this simple piece with bits and pieces of gold jewelry. From little pinky rings, to a larger diffuser necklace to capture attention. I later tried adding in my DW Classic Petite Watch in Melrose and it paired with my outfit seamlessly. Simple and classics do go a long way. I chose a pair of nude and rose gold metallic heels to go with the whole gold and burgundy theme. Topped it off with my Chanel Perfume Clutch to finish the whole outfit. It’s simple, not over the top, but will still catch attention.

I’m wearing a size 6 in this romper, which is way bigger than my normal size. I tried all 3 sizes and they do run small. There is also no elasticity so sizing up would be your best option for comfort. Size 4 was actually a good fit for me, but I found the bottom to ride up too much for my liking. This romper definitely runs petite and is perfect for petites.

      Thank you! I have two pieces from Dearest Grace (bought myself, non-sponsored) and I love them to bits!

    I’m in love with playsuits and rompers. And I agree about the scalloped edge- I’m glad it’s back. 🙂

    You look so cute. I loveee this outfit! I have been obsessed with heels lately 🙂. How are the material of H&M, had read a few negative comments on it off late.

      HI, it’s really decent for the price. It’s definitely considered fast fashion – meaning you wear pieces for a season or 2 (maybe more if you maintain it well.) For example, my romper was only $30 USD! Which you definitely can’t tell from the material and quality!

    Okay, HOW cool is your blog?? Who is your web developer??? I need!! Love how you organized your website, and that romper is so cute. Following!

    I love the dress. And wow, your hair is actually goals! I love how long and thick it is. Definitely do a post about how you take care of your hair if you haven’t already 🙂

  14. August 18, 2017 / 11:06 PM

    I have been on the hunt for a pink scalloped skirt or white scalloped shorts. I love the trend, and your outfit here!

  15. August 18, 2017 / 11:07 PM

    I love your necklace. It is a beautiful piece. I have never worn a romper before.

  16. August 18, 2017 / 11:30 PM

    Scallop hems are adorable! They are very east coast.

  17. August 19, 2017 / 12:04 AM

    The scallop hem is oh so pretty and feminine. That outfit looks super great on you!

  18. August 19, 2017 / 2:15 AM

    This is so cute! I don’t know if I could walk in those heels but I would try if I had an event that required me to wear fancy clothes, I love them!

    I love the hem on this romper. It has been about a year since I have shopped for clothes. I need to get some new stuff.

  21. August 21, 2017 / 8:45 AM

    I love this outfit on you! Scallops are one trend I haven’t embraced yet – but I’ve got a few items in my ASOS basket with scallops, just waiting for pay day 😉 x

  22. August 21, 2017 / 9:18 AM

    I do agree. Scallop hem really takes an outfit to the next level. It’s something trendy not so over the top..:)

  23. August 21, 2017 / 12:35 PM

    I’m loving the scallop trend as well. There is something feminine and fun about it. You’re rocking the romper!
