My ode to crop tops

Never in my wildest dream would I think to wear cropped tops again as it is making a huge come back this summer. Where I live its practically summer year around but cropped tops are somewhat of a taboo as we live in a very conservative country, and at my age, cropped tops are no longer a typical fashion option. With all do respect to my excuses, I have to admit, there is something about showing the tinsiest tiniest bit of skin around the waist area and so I challenged myself in wearing one without looking vulgar and exaggeratedly trying hard to be youthful. I looked through my wardrobe and see what i can come up with.

Found a Forever 21 stripped top but it wasn't quite the look I was going for. I look further and found a purple spaghetti strap top with ruffles and my high waist jeans from the 90's I tell you, my @lovenikitaph accessories, my flip flop from Baler and my look is complete.

So what do you think? Have I gone way over board my limits? Have shown way too much skin? Am I trying too hard? well, I'm loving it cause it does help me keep cool under the kinda weather we've been having here lately.

If nothing else, I just wish to have inspired some of you to step out of your comfort zones and be creative. Thanks for stopping by and I hope its been an enjoyable read. Til next time!
