On my mission to take some scenic photos around NYC, I couldn’t forget about the Brooklyn Bridge! I’ve walked and biked across the bridge, but up until a few weeks ago, I’d never made it down to the bridge for outfit photos. Lydia and I met there “early” (8 a.m) on a weekday morning thinking the bridge would be deserted and while it wasn’t as crowded as it would have been on a weekend, it wasn’t exactly empty. Who knew so many people commuted to work via biking and walking across the bridge! Even though we had to dodge a lot of people, we really lucked out with the overcast skies. But the wind, oh my gosh. So, so windy that morning!
The term “crop top” gets such a bad vibe (and sometimes rightfully so), but I’ve been scooping them up left and right! My favorite outfit “trick” as of late is pairing a crop top with a high-waisted skirt. You may be thinking… A crop top outfit that doesn’t bare any midriff.. What’s the point?
NO FUSSING WITH YOUR TUCK JOB!
I’ve always loved a good skirt and shirt combo, but I tend to end up annoyed by the end of the day. Having to re-adjust my tuck after every trip to the bathroom and after most times that I sit up and down, it gets old after a few hours. But a crop top makes it easy! No messing with bunches of material under your skirt and how much of your shirt is untucked. Win, win!
PS: How fab is this skirt?! I’ve been drooling over it since I saw it on Shopbop, but I held out in hopes that it would go on sale. And thank goodness I did! When I saw it marked down 60%, I had to make it mine!
I kept it classic with the styling — a black top, statement necklace, and my favorite bow pumps (that also happen to be on sale). You can never have too many bows, right?
