Summer in the city



The past few weeks have been ridiculously, over-the-top, makeup-melting, hair frizzingly hot. And in that kind of heat, an outfit with a little built in air conditioning is always welcome.

I've been looking to find a way to wear a crop top without looking ridiculous. I think they're sexy and I know a lot of fashionistas are into them these days and are taking chances and breaking rules. I couldn't possibly love seeing them do that more than I do. But for myself, it's important to me to dress in a way that I feel pushes the envelope but also feels comfortable at the same time.





I paired it with a black, high-waisted pencil skirt and felt great. It didn't actually feel much different than wearing something tucked in, although because it is a wider cut and not fitted, it did go rogue in the wind a few times.


I'm also not usually into being too matchy-matchy, but I really like the way the necklace went with my new shoes. Overall, I was happy with the way it turned out. And I got a compliment from the boyfriend too. Can't beat that.



Thanks to all of you who entered the Custom Plus giveaway. I loved your answers SO much. You guys really are something! I will announce the winner tomorrow morning, so there's still a few hours left to enter!

Shirt, shoes & skirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Ashley Stewart

Very cute!! This look is fire!!

I've been trying to get into crop tops too! Highwaisted is most def the way to go for me as well. I've tried a crop top with a high-waisted maxi skirt. I also rock the tucked in look. My latest post was with a high-waisted pencil skirt and a tee tucked in. I love it.
