Crop Tops for Days

Dare to bare in this week’s trend, the ultra fabulous crop top!  Crop tops are everywhere this season and at first, I must admit I was a little nervous about them, but now I am in love and cannot get enough.  I try to incorporate a crop top into as many ensembles as possible, which is tricky (and not quite appropriate) considering the dress code at my office is business casual.  But I digress, I fully appreciate the initial hesitation with crop tops, but this trend is a summer must that I encourage everyone to experiment with.  There are different levels of midriff to bare and so many looks that can be achieved with this trend.  Make it your own and have fun with it!

Dare to Bare

Another summer obsession and heat wave survival essential is the crop top.  I know I said it before and dedicated a post to the 90s, but they are back in a big way and the resurgence of the crop top is another wonderful 90s trend that has reared its fabulous head.  While the 90s were dominated by grunge, the crop top has taken on a more versatile role.  Baring your midriff is not only on trend but it can also be done in a tasteful sophisticated way.  This is another trend that I constantly hear people say they cannot rock, but to the naysayers out there I say, you can do it!  As always, comfort is key so only bare what feels right to you and from there, go wild!

I normally don't go for a midi length but the conservative length is perfect for the provocative top

Can’t Get Over Overalls

I have to admit the last time I wore overalls was when I was in grade school, but boy do I miss them!  As I get older (it’s almost my birthday) it is refreshing to remember that fashion and trends are not ageist and do not discriminate.  What matters when it comes to fashion and personal style is that it reflects you, your mood, the person you want to be that day and is, of course, flattering.  With all of this in mind, I can’t wait to embrace overalls and pay homage to the days when things were less complicated and comfort was all that mattered.  For years I have been in the market for the perfect pair of short overalls and while my search is (sadly) still ongoing I think this is truly the season I will rekindle my love with this classic wardrobe staple of the 90s.

These overalls are my dream! Love the casual look & textured tee.

Perfect way to dress up overalls is pairing them with heels, blouse & blazer.  Unexpected and fabulous!

A great way to make overalls your own is by adding a statement necklace and an unexpected pop of color
