Unsung Wardrobe Heroes: Black Crop Top Edition

Howdy! An article of clothing that I don’t think I give enough credit to is my beloved black crop top from Target. I have had this little number for a handful of years and I honestly can’t even tell you the amount of times that I’ve worn it. I do know that for the ten dollar price, my cost per wear is probably down to fractions of a cent! From its perfect cut and soft material to its versatility in styling literally any outfit, my black crop top is definitely an Unsung Wardrobe Hero.

This past summer, I have sported my crop top often simply by pairing it with jean shorts and loads of jewelry for a quick work outfit or with a pleated faux leather skirt for something more dressy seen below:

^^^ Peep me and my boyfriend looking mighty cute!

During the summer, it’s easy to slack on your outfits – believe me, I get it. It was unbearably hot in Ohio this year, with days in the high eighties and nineties more often than not. And, for those of you who don’t know, Lil Red does not function well in extreme heat. I sweat like nobody’s business, I get fatigued, and downright cranky. Despite the major discomfort, still staying fashion forward and slaying the streets was important to me.

My black crop top allowed me to stay cool and comfortable without showing too much skin and for that, I am thankful. Looking like a blogger when I go out is a high priority for me and the fact that I could wear this shirt dressed up or down kept the possibilities endless all summer long. And, it doesn’t just stop there because there is nothing better than a crop top under an oversized blazer come fall, which I have already been rocking heavily compliments of the cooler weather.

It’s easy to hold your more expensive or flashy pieces in a higher regard than your basic staples and that just doesn’t fly with me. Sure, I love my bling, bags, and shoes but I also appreciate the many OOTDs that my black crop top has allowed me to style throughout the years and I definitely consider it one of my wardrobe staples. So, here’s to you, my darling Target crop top and thank you for continuing to serve me well! ❤

Green With Envy Japna Top

Hi everyone and happy weekend! After shopping beauty during my last TJMaxx haul, it was all about trying to find a pretty new top to wear for Fourth Of July festivities. Out of the buttload of looks that I tried on, I finally settled on this gorgeous deep green peek a boo top by Japna. Take a look:

I. Freaking. LOVE this little number. From the forest green color and the black and white vertical stripes to the flutter sleeves and peek a boo back – this top is totally perfect. And, how cute is the above the booty bow that tightens and loosens the shirt? The answer is: VERY. 😀

Fifty shades of green is my absolute favorite color to wear. It looks amazing with my pale skin and red hair and it definitely is one of my go to colors that isn’t black. I also am a huge fan of the little skin surprise on the back to show off all of my tattoos. The flutter sleeves add a touch of sweet to the sex appeal of this crop top and the overall look is very flattering. And, you can’t beat a thirteen dollar price tag!

What is your favorite color to wear? How would you style this top? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Cropped Hoodie Cuteness

Cropped Hoodie Cuteness

Hiii everyone and happy Tuesday!! The Target Haul appreciation posts continue, as I was able to work in some very fun new pieces into my wardrobe thanks to going to Target twice this weekend (lol). One type of clothing that I am SO into is the crop top. I was working at PacSun when the crop top began to become a thing again in 2014 or so, so my closet is jam packed with all of the itty bitty tops imaginable.

Not only do I love the way that crop tops look on me but I LOVE that they show off my tattoos. Because I’m getting a new tattoo on my side on the 20th, I really wanted to find a new crop top to wear when I introduce it to the world. And GOOD NEWS – I found one! Take a look and let’s discuss:

On day one of shopping at Target this weekend, I saw this cropped hoodie and I thought that it was really cute but I didn’t bother trying it on. On day two of shopping at Target this weekend, I STILL thought that this cropped hoodie was really cute so I tried it on. #redundancy 😉

If there’s one thing that Lil Red loves, it’s urban wear. I love jerseys, joggers, backwards ball caps, and tomboy cool everything. This cropped hoodie screams urban chic to me and that is one of my favorite looks to style so, of course, I ended up buying this bad boy. This was one of those pieces that I knew I was going to like as soon as I tried it on and I was obviously right!

Not only is my new side tattoo going to look so pretty against the grey scale with a pop of red color palette but the wardrobe possibilities are endless. I am most looking forward to pairing this cropped hoodie with a pair of black short shorts, a backwards ball cap, a chunky gold chain, and my pair of floral print or tye-dye Nikes. That look will be ideal for outdoor drinks on my deck with friends or some day time running around. To Target, perhaps?!

The Cropped Hoodie Cuteness is so real with this top and the seventeen dollar holler price tag was another added bonus! Who else is a crop top fan? What style of shirt is your fave? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
