A few posts ago, I talked about one of the biggest and budget-friendly trends for the spring, the crop top. I found a great white form-fitting crop top from my local thrift store and knew immediately that it would prove to be a really versatile addition to my wardrobe. I decided to try it out with two different skirts to see how I could make two very different but very fun and pretty outfits inspired by one simple (and CHEAP) top.
I wanted to go with the fun vibe of the shirt and added a short skirt that I can wear high-waisted so I'm not showing too much skin. I am really into black and white together right now, but to break up the look I added a bright pop of color with these magenta heels. Too bad they just look pretty and aren't really wearable beyond a few photos (so I suppose if I just wanted to go somewhere to be photographed and then leave on someone's shoulders, they'd work!) What I'm really happy about is this amazing vintage leather purse with a gold chain I found at a thrift store. Every girl should have a chain strap purse, and this one is incredibly special.
