Why You Shouldn’t Put Away Your Crop Tops

November 23, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Russ and I had his coworkers over for dinner on Friday, and it was so fun for me to get to know them all a little. Saturday we put up our Christmas decorations. I know, I know, it’s early, but it was also a good weekend for us. I also have a fun giveaway with Tiny Prints coming on Friday that is Christmas related. I needed decorations! Be sure to check back Wednesday and Friday as my giveaway series continues. You can enter the previous ones here.

Okay, on to the outfit. Fall calls for layers which is why you shouldn’t put away your crop tops. This sweater version from Choies and my over the knee boots made my shirtdress wearable for the cooler temps. Do you remember seeing it with heels during the summer (post here)? I love finding ways to make a piece work in multiple seasons. Adding a crop top over a dress or a blouse to change things up is the perfect way to do just that. Anything can become a layer, so get creative!

    I love this idea! I will have to try this out. I’m so bummed because it is so cold here right now and there is so much snow that I can’t wear my suede OTK boots until it hopefully melts. I wish I had put up our holiday lights outside before the snowstorm hit this weekend. I think you were smart to plan ahead. You look fantastic! Have a great day.

    The addition of your cropped sweater vest totally takes your dress to a new level. I love it! We also have started decorating for Christmas, I don’t think it’s every to early. Christmas is more like a season to me than a holiday!

    I love doing this! I have a leather crop top that I like to layer over a crisp white button down. Such a chic way to layer!

    Your strped shirt dress is awesome, and you layer so well! πŸ™‚

    I’m terrible at layering, I think because we so rarely have to do it here in Queensland!

    Glad you had a fun weekend. It is a bit early for Christmas decorations, but suddenly I’m realising I’m not sure when we will have time to put ours up before Christmas, haha! The weekends in November and December fill up with parties and get togethers so quickly!
