I’ll be completely honest… I never thought I’d ever be seen willingly wearing a crop top. I’m all for taking fashion risks, but my risk-taking usually involves varying the length of my skirt or experimenting with ruffles. It doesn’t usually involve bearing my midriff for the world to see– and paying more for a garment that provides less than half the regular fabric of a traditional top. Yes, I used to compete in pageants (evidence), and yes, I’ve worn a bathing suit before (also evidence). I’m no stranger to showing off my (what used to be) abs. Just something about the stereotypical crop top trend screams cheap/tacky. My interest was peaked when I saw this matching crop top and shorts set on SheIn.com. The print reminds me of Greece for some reason, and it had pretty impressive reviews, so I decided to give it a go. So glad I did.
Oh, and don’t let the $18 price tag fool you. This matching crop top and shorts set is well made and super comfortable. I wore this outfit to the Disney Springs Insta-Walk a few weeks ago, and even in the Florida heat, I stayed a very very happy camper. The material is light, has quite a bit of stretch to it, and is surprisingly soft. Also, it’s not fitted or tight around the arm pits, which is a major pet peeve of mine. These pictures were actually taken at Disney Springs, so due to the nature of our move-and-shake itinerary, I styled this matching crop top and shorts set with my comfiest Tory Burch Miller flats and a versatile GiGi New York clutch that somehow turns into a bottomless Mary Poppins bag in times of need. Head down to the bottom of this post for full outfit details!
Oh, and I’m super sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks. I have some big news coming to the blog later this week! Stay tuned… and have a great week, y’all!
