Summery Stripes


I've previously talked about my thoughts on crop tops here and here. Crop tops are not my number one option to wear when putting my outfit together. However, I do reach out for them once in a while when I want to create a particular look. I know that I don't have the perfect supermodel bod (though I haven't stopped wishing, or working for it) but I think you don't have to have the perfect body to wear crop tops with confidence. 

SHOP THE LOOK
Top: Sammydress (c/o)
Skirt: old (similar, similar)
Shoes: Steve Madden

On the contrary, I like the sense of empowerment I get from wearing crop tops. It not just shows you are confident but that you love your body. As the old phrase goes, "If you got it, flaunt it." When I got this top from Sammydress, my initial thought was excitement. It is just about summer time, so I have the perfect excuse to wear them more often. And it comes in a classic striped pattern. I paired it with a high waisted cobalt midi skirt just to let the skin peek a bit. 

What is your favorite way to wear crop tops?

  24. Aw this is so pretty! Love the dark stripes against the royal blue. I'm also one of those people who isn't 100% confident in crop tops but when worn with high waisted items I think they look much more fetching x

  25. You look gorgeous, girl! Such a fun cropped top and it looks so striking against the cobalt. Back in the day I wore cropped tops often, and you are inspiring me to reconsider age appropriate cropped tops again.
