Gingham & Gold Buckles

Sorry I’ve been a bit absent!I wanted to share this: my last crop top before I put ‘em all away for the winter. I have a lot of content coming up but because I’ve been trying to stay fresh, but I’m a bit behind on blogging because I’m still getting used to my new job. (!!!) Which—by the way—I absolutely love.

Every time I wear a crop top, I feel the need to wax eloquently about how I never would have imagined myself as being a crop top-wearing kinda person. Blame it on my body dysmorphia, or maybe my strict upbringing, but I never thought I’d feel comfortable baring my midriff. Lately, it’s been a bit of a test though. I’m firmly in my late 20’s and, I kid you not, the day I turned 27, I started carrying a little extra weight in my tummy section. Still, I’ll rock crop tops.

To keep it fall appropriate, I paired it with a simple brown cardigan and cropped jeans. Because the weather had been so mild, I wore my white backless loafers instead of my usual ankle boots. I also added a straw bag because, as long as the weather is warm, it’s fair game, yeah?

It can be done! Summer basics in an autumnal palette. I’ll be bringing this one out the next time it’s unseasonably warm.

xo, e.m.
