Watermelon | Crop Top and High-Waisted Shorts

Lovely Monday darlings!



I'm not really a crop-top kind of girl - perhaps it's because I work in such a formal/conservative-dress-code setting (politics) so I never really got behind the crop top trend. Plus I'm not really one to show my belly - yikes!
I really liked how crop tops look on other people though and designers have been coming out with really gorgeous ones. I saw this top at Francesca's Collections and it was love at first sight - the soft color and the scalloped edge won me right over! I decided to pair this top with a pair of high-waisted shorts to make it more wearable. The color scheme kind of reminds me of watermelon, don't you think? :]








How do you guys feel about crop tops?

Top: Francesca's Collection top, Francesca's Collection cardigan
Bottoms: Forever 21 shorts
Accessories: Francesca's necklace, H&M belt, Bershka crossbody (worn as a clutch)
Shoes: Michael Kors Caroline pumps

  3. Francescas is one of my BIGGEST weaknesses- it's just like a girl's paradise when you walk in. If I had a black Amex I'd buy the whole store clean, haha. And I really love crop tops! But just like you, I need to pair it with something high waisted. Wearing them with low waist lines is just too Britney Spears circa 2002 for me haha!

  6. Watermelon is definitely a good title for this outfit! I can definitely relate with you on crop tops- but I'll definitely love to wear them as they seem to look better and better as time flies, haha! Anyway, that necklace is gorgeous too!

    Have a great day!

  10. Dear Deborah, but you should wear cropped tops more often as you look great in them! And you are so right, this is indeed a water melone outfit, you wear exactly the colour of this fruit :)

  13. Gorgeous outfit! :) I love crop tops, but I know what you mean, sometimes I get a bit self-conscious about bearing my tummy - could do with toning mine up a bit haha!

  19. I like these color together. So beautiful. I like to try the crop top trend but I cannot find the one that is not to tight or too shorter up to my ribs. I think because I don't have a washboard abs, lol. This is so cute on you and you are looking pretty.
