If someone mentioned an outfit consisting of a crop top and short jean cut-offs, your first thought may be something that looks slighty trashy. But surprise, there is a way to do it in a way that comes off casual and cute. You see, I'm a married mother of two, but I workout regularly to maintain--so, I have no issues showing it off (just a bit). I prefer to show a little skin in a more casual manner, which is what this little ensemble gives. For me showing full on belly has become passé, instead it's more chic to pair a crop top with a bottom that is high-waisted. Even these shorts aren't as high-waisted as I'd have preferred, but it's what I had and I worked with it. By the way, I've been living in these cut-off shorts lately. They were "mom jeans" from the Goodwill bought for the sole purpose to make them high-waist cut-offs. They are so comfy and I love the slight "paperbag waist" effect I get when I belt them.
Because my crop top is a tube top, I chose to throw this awesome little button up I found at Walmart (yes, Walmart!) over it. Finishing it all off with a cute pair of flat sandals (Enzo Angiolini), and my showing-skin-in-a-casual-way look is complete.
Have a great weekend!
