U & I

   Recently I have found myself to be quite obsessed with a few kpop idols/groups. I have always been aware of kpop and some singers, but this summer might have been the first time where I began following a few kpop idols. One singer I have found myself to have fallen for is Ailee. She entered the kpop scene last year after not being taken seriously in America because of her race. (which I agree... don't take this the wrong way, but I think there needs to be more asians in the media) She is from New Jersey and has one of the most powerful voices in Kpop! I always find her live performances to be the best! I discovered Ailee after hearing her sing Halo. Her voice was just amazing in that song!
  Last month Ailee came out with a new song called U&I. For her performances of this song, she is always seen wearing a peplum type top and shorts which is what inspired me to create this outfit today.

I have never worn peplum before because I didn't know how it would look on me. I just didn't know how I felt about the idea of a poof at the end of my top hehe. I am happy to say that after trying this outfit on, I find peplum to be quite cute if worn the right way! The color of this top is so pretty! I find myself to be loving color mint nowadays. One thing I like about this particular top is the intricate design it has on it and the back. There is a triangle cut out in the back which I think is super cute and unique.

Ailee Inspired Outfit

Along with this top, I wore a pair of shorts I got in May during my forever 21 haul. To be honest, I haven't really worn the shorts much until now. The shorts are super comfy (so why did I not wear them earlier hehe?) and have gold buttons down the front as well as a zipper in the back.  For my shoes, I wore my Ugg Luciannas. Compared to my pink/red heels, these Ugg heels are SO much comfier. Although I still felt like I was falling forward when I walked, these heels were much softer and didn't hurt my toes. I even did a little sprint up the stairs in them without injuring myself.

For accessories, I chose to wear a bracelet in the same color as my top. I got this bracelet a long time ago when I was a child. My mom's sister ( I think) sent it to us from China. The ring I am wearing says love you and is from Charlotte Russe

Since my outfit today is inspired by Ailee, it would only be appropriate to link a video of her in the outfit that inspired me. I am choosing a live version here rather than the music video because as I said before, her live singing is so much more powerful than her voice in the music video!


Top- Sugarlips
Shorts- Forever 21
Wedges- Uggs

Are you a fan of peplum?
