Crop With A Pop

September 23, 2013

Wearing: H&M top (similar) | thrifted skirt (similar) | 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bag | Nine West Heels (save/spend) | Macy's sequin cuff | Leather bracelet c/o Papa East Fashion | Target Tortoise Watch (similar) | House of Harlow Sunglasses | Baublebar Twitter Necklace

I've always wanted to try a crop top, but I'm not typically one to fork over a lot of money towards a trendy item.  So when I spotted this $5 crop top at H&M a few weeks ago, I knew it was meant to be.  I tried this crop top on with a few other pieces, but didn't seem to like it much with anything other than my pencil skirts!  

It's funny because I walked out wearing this, and my husband just said, "That looks like something Jennifer Aniston would wear in Friends" (we watch a lot of Friends in my household… best 90's sitcom ever.)  I decided I'd take that as a compliment, then preceded to explain why I've been wearing overalls, tiny floral prints, and crop tops lately… don't you know that we're having 90's throwback trends here in 2013?!  Hope you all have an amazing week!

Thank you so much for reading!

  8. I did the same thing! I wanted to try the crop top trend, but I didn't want to invest, so I found mine at H&M too. Love how you paired your top with a tweed skirt, so unexpected!

  16. I've been loving pencil skirts lately. They are also the only thing I will wear a crop top with unless I layer something underneath (and making that look decent is no easy task). You look fabulous!

  22. Honestly, one of the reasons I haven't bought a crop top yet is because I have no idea how to wear one without looking like I'm trying too hard to be a teenager. This is basically the perfect way to wear one, and be super trendy and classy. Love it!

  25. I love this!! I was really leary of a crop top and it's a little promiscuous for the work place. But, pairing it with a high waisted pencil is just the ticket!
