Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend; mine was equal parts relaxing and productive, the type of weekend I look most forward to.

I put this look together with a wedding or formal event in mind. Both of these pieces, the crop top and the mini skirt, are pieces I picked up during the Memorial Day sales at the nearby outlet mall. I thought the skirt would be an easy choice for work, but this crop top made it a bit more trendy and less “office-y”.

I really like the look of the crop top with a skirt worn at the waist so that you’re showing very little (if any) skin. It just works to have a top that doesn’t require tucking in. At my age, I’m not interested in wearing a crop top with anything low rise. To me, that is a look better worn by teens and early twenty-somethings during high school and college years. Beyond college, it no longer feels age appropriate.

I would try out the outfit above for any weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, etc., you’ve got planned for the summer. It’s simple, on-trend and chic. For the office, I’m thinking I’ll pair this skirt with a sleeveless button up blouse (like this striped one, or this solid version) and a black pointed toe pump or flat. And I’m looking forward to wearing the crop top with a high waisted black pant (like the joggers here) and a caged heeled sandal (like the ones here).

Any other recommendations on ways to wear either of these pieces?

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
