Brooklyn Bridge in a Bow Skirt

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?


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?

    Great idea for “classing up” a crop top! I, personally, have been on the fence about them, but your pairing with a fuller skirt may have convinced me!

    These pics are stunning! The Brooklyn Bridge is such a landmark and I loved walking across it the last time I was in NYC. And this black and white outfit is so cute. I love seeing bloggers post outfits I can recreate for work, so thanks for sharing 🙂

    I love the high waisted skirt and crop top combo–I think that’s how they show always be worn!

    I do the exact same thing with crop tops and high waisted bottoms. I like showing a little peek of skin at most, not baring it all. This outfit is perfect for the bridge background, and I am in love with your bow skirt!

    Never ever have I ever owned a crop top. Mostly because I don’t feel comfortable in them, but this look? It’s a winner. You look great! And not the slightest bit windblown 😉

    Um, totally did not think about the no-fuss tuck job when pairing a crop top with a high waisted skirt! I’m not super comfortable with the midriff baring crop top, but I do hate bulky tuck ins into skirts- this may be my new trick too! Thanks for the idea girlie!
