If there’s one thing I love about the holidays, it’s finding a fun outfit to wear to a festive party! Haha… one thing… I’m laughing as I write this. Alright… one of many many many things. I love a reason to dress up and wear sparkles. And celebrate the Most Wonderful Time of the Year with my family and friends.
Last year I made a very vain goal of being able to rock a crop in 2016. What? We all make them sometimes. I’m laughing again because those were my exact words: “rock” a crop top. Now I’m not sure I’m really ‘rocking’ this top up here, but I will say that I finally figured out how to wear one with class. I’ve seen some very questionable crop tops that I think we’ll be looking back on wondering what we were thinking. But I’ve also some crop tops done really well. My favorite are those crops that show just a bare amount of skin, or none at all, and are worn with high waste pants or skirts.
I’m in love with this little crop I bought at Express and I just got the same one in black that I’ll show you in a future holiday shoot. My faux leather skirt is just high enough so that the crop fits with it perfectly. Because I live in Austin, this ensemble is pretty easy to pull off with out warmer winter. However, I recommend high waste pants and a black crop if you’re experiencing the cold. And a bold lip of course ;) If you’re in need of some new bling, you have to check out these elegant crystal drop earrings I discovered on Etsy that have quickly become my favorite. They’re so gorgeous and under $30 which is quite a deal for a staple pair if you ask me.
Now does anyone else have a crazy December to-do list? I’m having a hard time keeping up with it all! Luckily, so much of it is fun. Like sending Christmas cards ;) And shopping for the perfect gift.
Hope you all have a great Hump Day! Xo
