Crop Top












Today I decided to spice things up and have some midweek FUN and that’s what this get up is all about!! This is the perfect look for a girl’s night out on the town or for me, a fun fashion event. I’ve been really into the whole matching set look for several months now, and this is the same idea but jazzed up a bit! I fell in love with this top a while ago, but didn’t have anything in my closet to pair it with (my husband would beg to differ). When I saw the skirt I just knew it would compliment it perfectly! The caged sleeves on the top have been a super hot trend and take the crop top look from boring to bold. The graphic print on the skirt is gorgeous and adds a youthful, vibrant vibe to the whole outfit. The skirt can easily go from summer to winter by throwing on tights, booties and a black crop top sweater. You could also make this work environment friendly by trading the crop top for a blazer and stilettos for a nice pair of pumps or flats. This skirt is so versatile and such a fun statement piece to have in your closet!! Since the skirt is so busy, I did something I rarely do and matched my shoes to my top. I also kept accessories to a minimum with a fun bangle that had complimenting colors. I’ve recently been really into ponytails- not sure if it’s a new trend or if my hair is just driving me crazy. But, either way they can look super chic and this one does the trick for this outfit! Keeping my hair down would’ve taken away from the caged sleeves and not looked as polished. This is such a fun outfit to wear and will make anyone feel sassy and confident!!

Sadly, today is the conclusion of {the first of many} Susan Lloyd Photography week on Southern Meets Chic. However, it is also the conclusion of the work week and time for play days! Although I will be busy moving all weekend {sigh} and will not be wearing anything remotely close to what is seen above, I figured I would give y’all some weekend wear inspo to kick start your TGIF! If you are even barely into the latest fashion trends, then you are obsessed with a matching two piece outfit! A few years ago I would have been disgusted if you had of told me this would be cool, but I am SO into it!! It’s a super easy (hello- you don’t have to match a top & bottom) way to be on top of your fashion game. Throw a crop top into the mix and you are really rocking it! Okay, so not only does this have two piece appeal and crop top action, but it also has an envelope style skirt. (if you aren’t comfortable with a crop top, but still love this look, check out my second link on the similar items for an alternate option and similar look) All of these are MAJOR trends and this look pulls all three off without being remotely tacky or over the top! Since this has a pretty busy print, I wanted to pair it with fairly simple shoes. Keeping with the black, I wore my favorite {only} black heels. (on sale now!!) The lace ups play up the edgy look, but are nothing too crazy. However, since this was an all black and white outfit I wanted to add a pop of color with my lip and my handbag. Despite the daytime pics, this is definitely a nighttime look! Perfect for a night out on the town or concert! I wore it to Miley Cyrus a few months ago with a black leather jacket, but ditch the jacket this summer- HELLLOOOO Bey & Jay On The Run tour!!
