For a couple of months now, I’ve been completely crazy about crop tops, because I think they look absolutely stylish and übercool! I already had a cropped jumper but I haven’t had the time -or the balls- to go crop top shopping…yet. That is until this morning. In a total shopping frenzy (and encouraged by my personal style icon Jessie J) I went looking for a super duper , dope crop top outfit. And I found it!
And what’s more: I looked smashing!
I bought not one but TWO amazingly cute crop tops! And a high rise denim hot pants to cover up most of my belly.
A crop top combined with a high-waisted skirt, shorts or trousers is the best way to wear such a notoriously difficult garment, since we’re not planning on going back to the early nillies, when it was still appropriate for the Britneys and Christinas on this planet to flaunt their bellybuttons in our face.
The funny thing is, however, that –hypothetically speaking– if I wanted to wear a “Hit Me Baby One More Time” Britney outfit, I would sooooo be able to pull it off!
Seriously! I was standing in that fitting room today, twirling around in my crop top, looking at myself in the mirror in full amazement! My belly was so trim and flat, I could easily rival with Giselle and Doutzen!
Okay, that may be a bit exaggerated, since no one can rival with those two. But still, you get my point that I was truly delighted and in an utter state of blissful euphoria when I realized my belly looked more than fine in a crop top. I even got so incredibly elated that I ended up doing an –albeit ridiculous- little dance. Carlton style!
I guess that says it all?! 😉
So dear ladies, today’s lesson is very simple: we can do and wear more than we think! We just have to believe in ourselves!
