Outfit Post: Crop To It!


 





 
Target Black Crop Top Tank (very recent!)
Behnaz Sarafpour for Target Silver Brocade Circle Skirt (old - similar here)
Zara Heels (old)
Love Culture Transparent Rose Gold Clutch || Michael Kors "Bradshaw" Rose Gold Watch || J. Crew Pave Link Bracelet (look for less version here) || Nordstrom BP Metallic Aviators in Pink || Ever So Lovely Stardust Studs (gifted)
 
I've been talking about crop tops for weeks.. no scratch that. Months. And for some reason I just didn't think I could get away with it. Then I saw Jess at My Style Vita rock the heck out of her crop top- high waisted skirt combo. Seeing how fab she looked made me stop being a baby and put my money where my [blogging] mouth is.
 
Here's why the outfit works: My crop top is a full top - mock turtleneck if you will. There's no low-cut V neck or open back. It's just a simple muscle tee with the bottom half cut off. My skirt is high waisted. There's no belly button showing and it's no where near a low rise (it also helps that the length isn't too short) When bringing this 90's crop top trend up-to-date, you want to show the right amount of skin instead of just showing skin. This way you look stylish and modern!
 
Also do you guys see my newest clutch addition? I am so in freaking love with this transparent clutch it's not even funny. I just had to make sure I carefully selected what actually went in it (apparently I like to have minty fresh breath!)
 
Before dinner, Bill & I hit up Chelsea's Style Sessions event at J. Crew. I SO wish this gal hadn't moved to Charlotte practically as soon as we moved to Raleigh! She's beyond fabulous. And stylish! I have serious wardrobe envy. But at least we're not super far away so maybe I can still borrow stuff from time-to-time ;)

Happy Tuesday everyone! Don't forget to stay tuned for a super awesome giveaway this week!!!
