When Life Gives You Blossoms...

May 5, 2016

Although spring has technically been in season for about a month and a half now, it has only been recent that the weather has warmed up and started to truly feel like spring here in the East Coast (all of you who reside in the west coast, you have no idea just how lucky you are) . We would like to commemorate the start of warmer weather and longer days by breaking out our favorite crop tops and maxi skirts. Although crop tops were the definition of summer 2015, whether they were paired with high waisted shorts or skirts, something tells us that they will definitely make a reappearance in the golden days of 2016 (after all, how else can you show off that toned stomach you worked so hard for?) Mel wore her floral printed maxi skirt from Forever 21 and paired it with one of her basic knit grey crop tops. The lightweight material of the skirt makes it perfect to be worn on all occasions, from frolicking around at a park, to taking walks on a beach. It is however somewhat sheer, and we do recommend wearing it with nude undergarments or even some sort of spandex shorts underneath. For Jess, she decided to keep her outfit rather simple and casual by throwing on a salmon colored maxi skirt. To play around with the texture of her outfit, she wore a lace black crop top and opted to keep her jewelry also quite minimal with long, dangling earrings and a bangle. However, since the skirt is such a blank canvas, you can easily change up the style of this outfit by adding a leather jacket for a more edgier look, or adding a belt, hat, and some bohemian jewelry to pull off a Vanessa Hudgens inspired boho chic outfit. The great thing about maxi skirts aside from the comfort, is that they come in hundreds of different colors and prints, so there is always an excuse to buy another ;)
