Crop the Top, Again

Here's hoping there isn't an age cut off for crop tops... as I am quickly approaching 26! This look is perfect for summer, and because the shorts are high waisted, you aren't revealing too much by pairing them with a crop top. I love how this look is an effortless festival vibe that's appropriate for the summer.

I know I made the joke above about crop tops being "age appropraite" but it is a real fear that I have. On one hand, I do of course think it's the area that I live in. Crop tops aren't always socially acceptable in a small town (or when you have a Sicilian father), but I like them so I try to make them work. It's funny though, I could look in the mirror and thing "oh my gosh, no!!! I'm too old" and then I see pictures of celebrities well into their 30s rocking something similar and looking super confident. "Don't let your fear of age keep you from wearing the outfit." Okay so to be fair that may be a sports quote that I made work for this situation, but it kind of works right?? (Insert the emoji of the monkey with his hands on his face because it's totally necessary)
This look is actually pretty basic, but the pleating on the shorts and cut of the crop top give it a fun vibe that I'm just loving!
