Here’s the irony of it all. At 37, after giving birth to two kids and a not-so-toned belly that can look like a possible pregnancy (it’s not), I’ve added a few crop tops to my wardrobe. Gasp! I know, I really didn’t think that would happen.
There’s a catch.
I’ll only wear crop tops with high-waisted pants, shorts, or skirts. It’s a happy compromise! I’m showing only minimal skin, which makes me feel comfortable and confident, but I still feel there is somewhat of an age limit, you know? Again, that’s just my opinion and what works for ME. I’m not baring it all; just a little peek-a-boo skin. There’s a tasteful way to do it when you get a tad bit older.
Also, praise Jesus for all things high-waisted! the Lord for anything high-waisted! #amen
There are so many crop top styles out in stores and it’s all about finding the right one that works for YOU. I found this peasant-style crop top at Forever 21 and what drew me to it was not only the bold flower print, but also the long and loose sleeves!
As you can see, I paired it with a pair of high-waist belted wide leg pants, also from Forever 21 and look at the smidgen of skin that’s saying hello! Feels right for my comfort level. Who would have thought I would embrace this burnt orange shade?! I normally don’t gravitate to colors like these because it’s too close to brown and I’m not a fan of brown, but these I absolutely love and they pair perfectly with the color palette on the crop top!
This look is giving me all sorts of Boogie Fever/1970’s vibes with the wide leg pants, the shaggy blonde hair with bangs and the pointy white boots! I told you you would be seeing these white boots all year round!
