So… raise your hand if you wish the holidays weren’t over. Yup, me too.
I actually shot this outfit a while ago, but I kept putting off posting it because of all the holiday content I had to get up. I mean… a crop top doesn’t exactly scream “December” – both because of the weather and the abundance of Christmas cookies haha Buuuuut I still stand by this combo!! I don’t know about you, but I get so bored with winter fashion. Being both petite and curvy, I find that wearing jeans and bulky sweaters all the time makes me feel a little bit like a marshmallow. So how do you show a little skin and stay warm? A cute little crop top and a long cozy cardi!
But a crop top in the winter?! Really Lauren? I know, call me crazy – but with a few tricks you could totally do it, too. The first rule: you need to pair it with high waisted jeans. This is non-negotiable. If you try this with anything low rise, you’re gonna show too much skin. Put em away!
And the second – make sure your cardigan falls past your booty. Bonus points if it’s a little oversized to up the cozy factor.
Ahh and here’s my favorite bag, back at it again! It just never gets old!
Pssst this choker was last seen as a long necklace in this post. Isn’t it so versatile? It was also made by a Chicago designer which makes me love it even more.
Okay, so be honest with me… would you ever try this look? Or do you still think I’m totally crazy? Let’s talk it out!!
