You guys are probably sick of me talking about how hot it is in Vancouver, but this heat wave doesn’t seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. As a result, I only want to wear things that are loose or stretchy, and mostly just slide my feet into birks when I leave the house. This shirt and high waisted shorts combo is perfect for that.
I used to wear a lot of crop tops and unapologetically show most of my stomach and/or bum cheeks to the world each summer. Heck, even in the winter for the right occasion! Even though they might make me cringe now, I don’t regret fashion choices like that because I was very, very confident while I was making them. I felt like a hot young thing at the time, but these days, I still feel great and I tend to keep a bit more covered up. Maybe getting older has something to do with it, but now I actually have more confidence when I show a little less.
I will probably always rock hemlines on the shorter side (hey, you gotta work with what you got!), but the way I present myself has changed. The key here is only showing a sliver of skin with a crop top, and keeping things more balanced on the bottom with loose dressy shorts rather than a tight mini or cut offs.
Anyone else find themselves feeling more comfortable showing a little less skin this summer?
