wear it with: cropped top

26 May 2011
this week has been crazybusy, so i'm skipping the usual friday link love and giving you instead a "wear it with" installment! not for the faint of heart, the cropped top has come a long way since the '80s. the trick to wearing this midriff-bearing piece is not showing too much skin. i like the one below because the fit is loose and the sleeves are long. pair that with a high-waisted skirt or trousers and you'll be looking stylish instead of... well, you know.

i'm unplugging for the long weekend and i hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

A cropped top requires high-waisted skirts or trousers, definitely! The skirt is fabulous, Ashley. And as I adore clutches and I usually use accessories to add colour to my outfits, I'll take the Asos clutch too...and both pairs of sandals. :) Hope you have a wonderful long weekend! xoxo

I love those super colorful flat sandals! Such a fun way to add some color to a neutral outfit. I don't know if I could ever pull off a cropped shirt like that, but I love the idea of it!

Also, I gave you a blog award. Check it out! Happy 3 day weekend!
