Cropped Top & Floral Jacquard Skirt

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed the weekend. As I'm writing this blog post, we're actually saying farewell to Summer. The warm weather has gone, and now we're welcomed with cooler temperatures and rainfall. Not exactly the best weather, but I have to say, I'm excited for the Fall. Fall is my favorite season, simply because I love layering. But for now, I'll be saying my last good-byes to my summer wardrobe.

Shoes : Steve Madden (similar here)
Accessories : Necklaces c/o Gorjana (here and here), Rings from Gorjana (similar here)

For the first time, I decided to play with crop tops. Crop tops definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea. At first, I was really hesitant on baring my midriff. It just wasn't something I do. I decided to pair the crop top with a skirt that sit higher on the waist. This allows only a peek of skin, perfect when you're still new to crop tops. Since the top was fitted, I decided to go with a more flared out skirt. Not only do I love the color and floral jacquard of this skirt, I also love the shape of it. It's very structured. I love pieces that has more shape and structure to it, so I already know this skirt will get a lot of wear.

  1. Great giveaway! Love the crop top on you and Express always has great black and white tops.

  2. Cute skirt! The flared out structure is adorable :) I don't think I'm ready to try out the whole crop top look, but it looks fantastic on you! I could also see the skirt being paired with a chunky knit sweater too for when it gets colder out. Awesome giveaway by the way!

  9. Christine, you look so great! I know what you mean by showing the "perfect" amount of skin in cropped tops. The way you paired it with the flared out skirt makes it look extremely flattering and I love that the divine color of blue in your skirt contrasts so well with the black floral jacquard pattern. I've been LOVING your outfits lately, pretty lady! Hope you're having a great week. By the way, I sent you a quick email about NY - let me know what your plans are!
