outfit: crop top

June 4, 2014

pairing the same print like a dress

I had my doubts but I can officially say there are appropriate ways to wear a crop top in your 30s. Let this outfit serve as proof. Now there are other way stylish bloggers who have pulled off the look (my favorite 30-something Kim always does so with perfection) but just didn’t know if it was for me. When I saw this gorgeous floral print — perfect for summer wedding and baby-related parties — I couldn’t decide which piece to take into the fitting room… so I grabbed both. I love how they combine to look like a dress (yet under $40 total!), and of course have the versatility of a blouse and skirt. If you’re shy, consider layering this crop with a white tank underneath and pair with white denim and chic heels for date night. Make the skirt casual with denim, and flats. For a little added coverage, look for ones that just meet your pants or skirt, and you can always layer over a denim jacket or long cardigan, too.

    These separates are so good together, and doing a crop without showing skin is just my speed. So cute, so perfect for summer!

    I was like what crop top! This is a dress. You totally schooled me. I think crop tops with high waisted shorts are fabulous, and this one in particular is definitely more modest and demure.
