crop tops are for mamas too.

So for many years I have worn oversized, baggy clothing that covered my belly, because I just wasn't happy with my weight. But after having Hunter, and losing all the baby weight (plus a little extra from cutting out the booze), I finally feel comfortable wearing form fitting clothing again - finally! I'm still not 100% happy with my bod, because let's face it, I don't have time to go to yoga right now to perfect my tummy situation. I'm kind of busy running after a crazy toddler and running a business. But just because we may not have 6-pack abs and the shape of a skinny teenager, doesn't mean us mamas can't wear crop tops too! You can.

What I like about the crop tops this season are that they are cropped mid-rib area, which means that when you wear them with high waisted bottoms, you are showing off the thinnest part of your body, and the best part of the tummy! And it you wear it right, it's sexy without being too much. Know what I mean? This is not the crop top you wore in high school. 

I paired this black tank with a flowy pleated skirt and an amazing watch, for a feminine, but modern take on the crop top. And it's actually super comfy for hot days. But I also regularly wear my crop tops with high waisted denim shorts and jeans for a more casual look. And what's great is the crop will work right into fall - just throw on a leather or jean jacket, maybe even a trench, with some booties and you're transitional outfit is an A+. You win!

Also - how awesome is this watch?! I'm pretty much wearing it everywhere, with everything, everyday. It just makes me feel fancy. So in love!
