Seeing stripes

Crop tops are usually something that I stray far, Far, FAR away from when shopping. Why? As someone who hasn’t been working out as regularly as I should be after completing STP last year, I haven’t been feeling particularly confident in my own skin this season. It wasn’t until after doing a small “real bodies” styling and modeling for Moorea Seal‘s Snapchat stories last month, I tried on this striped crop top and changed my tune.

What I really love about this striped crop top is the fact that it isn’t too cropped. Paired with my high waisted “mom jeans” (haha they’re really not mom jeans, but I love calling them that), only a tiny bit of skin shows. The adjustability of the “croppedness” is also awesome because it can be fully controlled by the front ties. Since the knot isn’t fixed, I could decide how much or how little to pull the knot up.

Seattle’s weather has been absolutely gorgeous this Summer! I am excited to keep this striped crop top in heavy rotation until the end of September (aka when Summer in Seattle ends). Can’t wait!

  • I LOVE this! I’m all about neutrals, stripes, and if I’m going to do a crop top, it’s gotta be a longer one like this. You look great!

    I really like how you styled this and like you said I think the fact that this crop isn’t too cropped makes a big difference too! I’m always a fan of pairing stripes with black as well.
