I love putting together new outfits that I normally wouldn’t try. Take for example this crop top and high waisted shorts combo. I rarely ever wear crop tops and I usually HATE high waisted pants/shorts since I have wide hips and they tend to make them look even wider. However, I paired these two pieces together anyway and I am actually loving the look!
The high waisted shorts elongates my torso and I love the lace-up detail (I think it adds a chic, trendy touch). The longer sleeves on the crop top are nice so they don’t make my shoulders look too broad. I think with the high waisted shorts, had I worn a sleeveless crop top, it wouldn’t have worked. If you aren’t comfortable wearing crop tops, you could always just wear a plain tee and tuck it in. I added the long necklace with orange/white fringe to bring the orange shorts and white top together.
I had so much fun taking these pictures, and my friend Katie found the perfect spot! These walls were so cool and the paintings were amazing –just one of many of Charlotte’s artistic scenes. It’s hard to tell in the pictures but it was pouring down rain so huge thanks to Katie for bearing with me and getting through it! That also explains my crazy hair in some of the shots, and why we didn’t get too many pics… 🙂
So here are all of my outfit details:
Top: Nordstrom, $9.50 on sale –now sold out (almost identical, love this)
Shorts: last season but I was able to find a similar pair for only $32 (originally $118!)
Bag: SheIn, $29 (similar)
Necklace: Baublebar, old (similar, similar, similar)
Watch: Michael Kors, gift (similar, similar)
Earrings: Kendra Scott, $55 (similar)
Bracelets: Bourbon & Boweties, $22+
Sandals: Tory Burch, gift (similar for $39)
I hope everyone is having a good Thursday! It’s ALMOST Friday –we’re so close! What are some style risks that you have taken? Whether it’s pairing two things together or trying something totally new… I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment 🙂
