Chop Chop Crop Top Part 2

Crop Top + High Waist = End of Summer Perfection, Day to Evening

Combatting the heat in Los Angeles, I knew this crop top was the perfect weapon.  A day at the salon was the ideal way to beat the heat on one of my last days off before my graduate program started.  EEK!  As you read in Part 1, my hair went through a bit of a transformation.  So, my outfit that had to go through its own transformation from day to evening!  Because I HAD to go out with my new hair!!!


Having a previous post about crop top and high waisted shorts, I love how feminine and sexy this style can be.  Since this crop top accented 'the girls,' I wanted to be more modest on the lower half and went with this full skirt.  I actually, bought this skirt years ago at Lucky Brand, when the clothes were more edgy, not that this skirt is edgy, well...never mind.  Thank god it has a drawstring at the waist, resurrection!  Since this skirt has a drawstring, I could have given you a belly dance- um, naaaah.  So, I went with a little peek-above the belly button.  

Crop Top: Forever 21
Chain Necklace: Forever 21 (worn doubled)
Linen Full Skirt: Lucky Brand
Handbag: BCBG "lust" version here "must" version here
Sandals: DV Dolce Vita similar here


I just had to change my handbag to a clutch, BCBG, and flat gold sandals to red hot heels from ZARA, which I bought at their summer sale.  Somehow the chain necklace and the red heels really play off each other and bring the ethnic feel of the top out.  I feel as if I am channeling M.I.A.-gold chains, be a rockstar.  I digress.  Humidity was ever present which made a jacket or sweater unnecessary.   I was praying all night my new hair would not frizz up.  

Ah, color!!!  Enjoy!
