Cropped Top & High-Waisted Denim Shorts (& a Giveaway!!) {CLOSED}


Hello, hello! How was your weekend? What did you do? I had an awesome weekend! Friday I went out with a group of girl friends to see a favorite local band called Jimmy Nick & Don’t Tell Mama. Saturday I had a lunch date at this awesome little French cafe called L’Eiffel Bistrot, then also went out to an improv comedy club, the iO, in Chicago. The weekend rounded out with Mother’s Day on Sunday, which I spent with my darling Alena. How was your Mother’s Day?

A couple notes about this outfit… First of all, I love it! I’m often very hesitant to wear cropped tops, simply because I’m a mom, a fit mom, but I do consider modesty/age with certain trends. However, I believe cropped tops can be worn tastefully, and pairing this darling, teal tee with the black high-waisted denim shorts and tall gladiator sandals fell together perfectly. Let me know what you think about cropped tops, and also check out my Charming Charlie earrings… I’m giving away 2 pairs to 2 lucky readers! Details at the end!

GIVEAWAY DETAILS: I adore the accessories, especially the jewelry, at Charming Charlie. While I’m a lover of arm candy, like bracelets and rings, you will always find me wearing earrings. Depending on the outfit, I like big, statement earrings. I know dainty jewelry is on trend, but big earrings are so fun and eye-catching, and I was thrilled when I found the dangling earrings I’m wearing throughout this post, at Charming Charlie.

Therefore, I’m giving away 2 pairs of the earrings, meaning 2 lucky readers can win! Entering to win is so simple…

  1. You rock those sandals! I wish I could pull them off but I’m just too short sadly =(


  2. I am the same about crop top but that’s because I’m a 36 years oldie who shouldn’t be wearing any crop top. LOL! But girllll, you’re not only a fit mum, you’re also a yummy mummy so you know what? That crop top looks like it’s made for you.
