all that glitters // it’s all in the {details}

cutouts.  black & white.  gold.  what’s not to love?!  my thoughts exactly.  i picked up this crop top & skirt set without even a second thought.  it’s from my chic cousin Caroline [who I like to think of as my southern counterpart]’s online boutique.  i wore this for holiday festivities, as it worked well layering under tights as is pictured below.  but i look forward to also wearing it this spring.  i think the crop top would look so fresh n so clean clean with a pair of black jeans, white jeans, or even a flared skirt.  peep how i styled the outfit for cold weather weekends, as well as mix & match spring outfit inspo below!

with an outfit like this [head-to-toe matching ensem], keep accessories minimal: notice i styled with a black watch, gold bracelet, simple studs, & black heels.

the gold & black accessories just complement the rest.  i think everything works together nicely.  each piece is still special.  i especially love the gold stud detail on the heels- so my legs do not entirely disappear!

for me, it’s all about creating a complete look, without letting any 1 piece distract from the most important part of any outfit: you.

 

warm weather outfit inspo: how to mix & match this crop top + skirt set!

other way to wear the crop:

1. spring has sprung – white jeans please!

2. summer tends to allow more casual dressing.  my dressy crop top would probably work best with black denim – but see how kendall cropped her athleisure look

3. on the casual theme… dress it down with boyfriend jeans or my latest wish list item: overalls! [no sarcasm intended… me want]

4. still want to dress it up, but take it from Blizzard Jonas to summer chic?  pair the loud top with a simple skirt, still with enough drama to to flow in the summer breeze!

wow
