Crop It Like It's Hot

I'm sorry. It was too funny and I couldn't help myself. Lately I've just been finding myself embracing the crop. In the past I would have declared that the pants cut me off and make me appear shorter, and that in no way could a crop top ever pass as okay even in my most relaxed dress code work environment. But here I am, and it has most certainly been hot this month. These cropped culottes have dethroned pencil skirts as my summer work go-to.

  1. I would very happily steal this entire outfit from you. Although this week has been cloudy and a bit cooler here, it has been no less humid, so I am living for all things short and breathable right now - while still, of course, choosing almost exclusively black clothes with a few white and beige accents thrown in. I know my choices aren't really practicaly for the heat, but we all have to find our way of bridging the gap between comfort and style. And you've done a beautiful job of that here :)

  2. I so love these pants and this is such a cute Summer look.


  3. I love the wide leg cropped pants. It's a style I'm afraid to try, but they look good on you

  4. Very nice black and white striped outfit!

  5. Oh, how I love your look! Fabulous cropped pants and top! You look amazing!


  6. I 100% support that post title. And those pants, which I think look super stylish and comfortable (and that's a pretty good combo).

  10. Your crop top is so cute! It is totally my kind of cropped top because its cropped but doesn't necessary show any midriff! Plus, the scalloping is so cute!

  11. I've been really into cropped wide leg pants this year! I really enjoy how lightweight they are - pretty much socially acceptable pajamas :)
    loving your shoes!

  12. Those pants are so fun, but I REALLY love that top! Such a beautiful scallop!

  13. My favorite pant silhouette! I love cuffed hem, too! These are perfect!

  17. This extreme mugginess has made getting dressed impossible! I love this look and how breezy yet polished it is for the office. Embrace the crop!

  18. I had this same ordeal last week when wearing culottes... i love how these look on you and i cannot tell the top is cropped. It's like a "decent" crop ?

  19. This blog post title is everything! What a lovely outfit. I love cropped shirts for the summer. The bracelet is fabulous! Chic and simple.

    1. For some reason there was no comment box for me to comment in, so I tried the reply box and it let me!!
      I used to adore crop tops---and now that the high waisted pants are coming back, I'm going to be all over them again!!

  20. Ooh! I am loving these cropped pants! It took me a bit of time to embrace the crop as well. I find it a great way to showcase the pretty shoes! Thanks for sharing your style. XO, Ellese

  26. Well this look is one of my absolute favorites I think! And I would have thought the same things about both crop tops and cropped wide-leg pants, but you are making me want to reconsider too. This look totally works, and I think it's also really flattering!

  27. Crop tops and wide legged pants have to my go tos in the hot summers! I love how relaxed and chic your outfit looks! The scallop cut out detail looks so nice!
    Wishing you have an amazing weekend!
