Gingham Peplum Top and the Perfect Tote

There is a good chance that this isn't the first time you are seeing this gingham top.   Not only have other blogger babes been sporting it all over Instagram, including myself, but I've already shown it on the blog as one of my summer must haves, in this post here.   There is a reason so many people have been adding this gingham bow back peplum top to their closets.  Because it's so darn cute!  Not only is the gingham print perfect for the summer, but the peplum cut and bow tie back add the perfect details.  Plus it's only $18!  Because it is a little open in the back, and I do need to wear a bra, I added a white bandeau underneath for more coverage.  If you'd rather not show any skin, then a white fitted tank would work perfect too.  For a fun summer look, I paired it with my light wash jeans, then finished my outfit with a panama hat, wedges, and my new favorite tote bag.  This bag is by a brand called Veggani, which makes beautiful vegan handbags.  Not only is the company animal friendly, but they use high quality materials that are sustainable and eco-friendly.  At first it was the blush and tan colors that sold me on the Cherrie tote, but I'm loving the large size as it's perfect for schlepping all of the the twins stuff around.  I'm also thinking that this will make a perfect beach bag.
