Gingham Peplum Blouse

Gingham Peplum Blouse

Happy Monday! My husband and I are currently extremely busy designing our new home but I did get a chance to explore with Allison, my assistant, and I couldn’t be more in love!

We found this picturesque location in Grayslake, a quaint town with lots of lovely stores and charming cafes. I’ve never been here before but immediately fell in love it. I’ve always loved towns that have an old-fashioned attractiveness or charm. The vibes here are totally different compared to the hustle and bustle of Chicago…Everything seems slower paced and more peaceful.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by & have a great Monday!

Sending y’all much love,

    It’s so lovely to have some time for relaxation… I mean, surely it’s nice to be in the city, but a bit outside shows that life can have a slower pace, and I like it too! You look so lovely, dear V.! I love gingham and I love red and white! And also peplum! I loved the pictures, so beautiful, so ethereal and classy! Hope you have a lovely week!, dear V.! Hugs and kisses

    I have being married to my wife for the past 3 years and 9 months we have obviously being living fine for those past few years. but the problem i was having was that i haven’t being able to impregnate her because i thought i had a low sperm count,i had being visiting many hospital done various of test and samples but to no avail because all they could tell me was that am perfectly fine but i know that i am not fine my wife has being becoming impatient because i haven’t being able to impregnate her after so many years. Things got worst each day, every seconds of my life i always think of what next to do because am being fed of me being incapable. i have come across so many health attendant who normally tell me that i have no problem. but i know that am sincerely not OK. One faithful evening when i came online in search of some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer, and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Cora, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 28 hours, he is the answer to all your problem. that is how they got help from Dr Ahmed, their wife back, how they got their husband back, how they got their low sperm on high rate with the help of Dr Ahmed i had to quickly get his email/phone number on line and contact him as soon as i could because i needed help urgently we had some talk and what i will do to get my self OK. he told me that all i had do is to get some items for purification and cleansing, i did all of those and thanks to Dr Ahmed am perfectly fine and my wife has given birth to Twins of the same sex all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his wonderful help… Contact.: E-mail:

    I cannot believe how often I am seeing peplum on fashion blogs right now. That cut NEVER goes out of fashion, it seems. I really love it in peplum too. So cute!
