First outfit post of 2014… Let's get crazy! See that little skin colored belt… yup, that's my skin. Mama got her first crop top! (Y'all thought I was a baby when I called this top a crop… & again with this one). Well, no denying that this little number is indeed cropped! But paired with the matching print, high waisted skirt… well, I feel down right lady like chic!
Have you tried a crop top?
Am I crazy to expose my skin belt in Winter?

  5. You should come visit me in Indianapolis next Monday and wear this. We're supposed to have a high of zero (fo real)...you would have a little frostbite belt! But in a milder winter like you have in the south, I think this is totally appropriate! It definitely takes someone daring to rock the matching crop top and skirt, but you can do it.

  22. Wow, great photography - maybe it's the change in location that I'm reacting positively to? or perhaps you got a new camera? Love the results.
