The Grown-up Crop Top

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been really loving the crop top craze lately. The only thing was, I just didn’t feel comfortable enough to bare my non-tan and non-six pack belly out to the world. So I have been on a mission trying to find the perfect crop that fit my needs/requirements. Of course as soon as I walked into Nordstrom Rack, I find the crop top I thought only existed in my dreams! Then when I found this to-die faux leather midi-skirt to partner it up with, I was literally doing happy dance in the dressing room…once I saw it all fit perfectly together of course. Another fist pump went up in the air when the whole outfit came out under $60! Yahooo!!

I cannot end this post without telling you about my new additions to the family, the SJP ‘Lady’ Pump. They are even more amazing in person, if that is even possible. They are such a well made shoe. They fit my petite size 5 feet like a glove. I am so proud to own such a stunning pair from Sarah Jessica Parker’s amazing collection.

I hope I gave you some inspiration for a little twist on a perfect outfit for spring. What piece or pieces have you all been craving to add to your Spring wardrobe?

      Hi Penny! Sorry for late reply! I have been swamped studying for exams!!! I’m also in school along with blogging. I hope I can help you. I am a pretty solid size 35 in most of my shoes, the only brand I am sometimes a 35.5 is in Tory Burch flats. I have a pretty skinny and narrow foot though. So the 35 in the SJP shoes are a perfect fit! Hope that helps!! Good luck! Please tag me on your Instagram if you get them so I can you with them! xoxo

        Hi Elyse
        First congrats on your graduation. And Thanks for your reply. After posting a comment to you, I decided to not buy them. However your reply is extremely helpful now that I want to buy them again :) I just started following you on user name is Tungfiona. And since I am a shy person I don’t post anything but following :/ I’ll drop by your instagram sometimes. Thank you so much again Elyse :D
