Crops & Midis

    I happen to love my waist line.  I worked so hard to get it and continue to work hard to keep it.  The best way to show off your curves is focus your fit on the narrowest part of your waist.  That's easier to do with a dress, but finding great separates can create a more interesting and stylish look.
     On a recent browse through ThredUp, I saw a lovely print skirt for about $11, high waist, yes, but worth the risk for that print.  Then on a second visit I saw an adorable crop top and it just clicked that these two things were meant to go together.
     I've only ever thought of bare midriffs as style appropriate on beaches.  I haven't owned or worn a belly shirt since I was a toddler with an adorable little belly to show off.  Since then I've tried to keep my midriff covered for a variety of reasons, but thanks to the literal rise in waist lines, a cropped top is just the thing to compliment those midi skirts or high-waist shorts.
