The Conservative Crop

All summer I’ve been intrigued by the ‘crop’ trend but not sure I was brave enough to give it a shot. The idea of showing off my stomach is slightly terrifying and against my more conservative nature.

BUT the other day I found some old t-shirts that are now too small and too short and I thought, “Hey…I bet I could cut this up and pull off a slightly more conservative version of the ‘crop’!” So…that’s what happened and here you are…

The vintage high waisted skirt keeps me nice and covered and there is just sometimes a little sliver of waist that peaks through. That I can handle.
