You will only ever hear me say those words when it comes to fashion. Crop me out of a picture and the gloves come off! Unless I look like a hot mess. Today however, I’m referring to my colorful crop top from Eloquii that was given to me by fabulous friend Boardroom Blonde for being her life-size barbie!(See us play dress-up!)
I recently started venturing into the realm of crop tops now I feel like I’m a legal citizen! This one by Eloquii has definitely been added to the list of favorites. On me, it doesn’t stop right under my bust, but fits down onto my torso which I love. It’s scuba material so it’s not clingy, but snug enough to show off my curves. Here, I paired it with my new bone-button blazer and high-waist jeans to keep the focus on the crop top. I added a gold layered necklace for some extra sparkle and my Coach bag.
Believe me when I say it took me forever to give the time of day to a crop top. My biggest fear was, you guess it, my stomach and all of its stretch mark glory. My stretch marks are basically the same color as my skin so that wasn’t a major deal. My biggest issue was always being told girls like me have no business showing a mid-drift of any kind. No crop tops and no two-piece swimsuits. Those were the rules. Luckily I’m a rule-breaking connoisseur, and I’m so happy I broke this one. I will admit it does take a bit to get used to feeling the air on the tummy, but the feeling of liberation will take over and the rest is history.
So I encourage you to wear your crop tops with pride no matter what the “rules” are. Happy rule-breaking!
