crop top + lace skirt

April 9, 2015


Have you guys checked out Banana Republic’s revamped look and new collection? There are so many great pieces and I am loving the refresh this brand took. I picked up this lace skirt before I went to Grand Cayman to pair with my first ever crop top. I popped into the new BR flagship on Lower Fifth Avenue last weekend and had I not been on the phone, would have been picking up pieces left and right! I love this trapeze dress (would look so chic paired with a panama hat), this vest (which would look great paired with a LWD like this one I own), this shell and these fun sneaks that come in so many great colors. Perfect for the weekend with a pair of boyfriend jeans.


Historically I haven’t been able to wear crop tops. I have a rather large chest and that makes it prohibitive in most cases. I’ll need a large but then the arm holes gape and don’t look flattering or the material stretches across my chest. That being said, I’ve always loved the look of a minimal crop top paired with a high waisted skirt so when my roommate tried this one on during a recent visit to Aritizia, I followed suit and it turned out it actually fit. The black is slimming and I can wear a regular bra with it- PRAISE THE CROP TOP LORDS.



I wore this outfit in Grand Cayman as well and finally got to break out my Ted Baker heels that I scored on sale last year (p.s they come in 3 colors and are now under $100!) I am obsessed with the suede ankle ties and can’t wait to pair them with more little white dress numbers. Thinking about getting the blue next but someone needs to curb their shoe purchasing habits…(*raises hand*)



I’ve been out in California this week and am now in Seattle so it  has been a busy and exhausting week to say the least. There’s something about April thought in where I feel like with Spring starting to blossom and everyone emerging from their Winter hibernation modes that makes me want to really GSD (#getshitdone). Anyone share the same sentiment? I do need a few more hours in the day to sleep but hey, when don’t we all?

And one last PSA – don’t forget to shop the  Shopbop’s Friends & Family sale ! It ends tomorrow morning at 4AM EST!
