Modest Crop Top and Shorts Outfit

One of the cutest trends right now is crop tops.  Luckily high waisted bottoms are also on trend to compliment them.  

I'm guessing there are other girls and women out there like me who consider themselves modest.  I'm not extreme about it in anyway - as you can probably tell from following along on my blog - but I'm not one for really baring my mid-drift either.

I also am larger up top which can make the whole crop top thing that much more difficult to navigate.  But when I came across these shorts at Bloomingdale's I knew I was going to have to give it a go in order to showcase the gorgeous detailing at the waist.

This side-tie crop top is great for so many reasons:
1.  The fabric is not stretch - so it isn't going to hug anything, which in this case is a good thing.
2.  It's a longer crop top.  I definitely still consider it a crop top but it is long enough to cover the girls and still hit at my natural waist.
3.  The tie adds just a tad extra coverage, plus it's super cute!

These shorts are a must have too because they're so stinkin cute but they're also the perfect length for those of us with thighs!  I feel like every store has shorts on models with really skinny legs and I find they never look as good on me as they do the model.  Which is fine, it's just nice to find high waisted shorts that are also long enough!  

My purse is a Kate Spade from a few years back, here is the most similar one I could find, though it is mostly white with blue accents (still adorable!).  But if you ever see a navy purse snatch it up because this thing is a staple in this preppy girl's closet!

Shoes are Jack Rogers jelly sandals - super comfortable and won't get ruined in the rain!  Though they are slippery if you do get them wet...

Ok - so - I want to know what you think of this look!  Are you somewhat modest like me?  Would you wear this?

3 Night Cruise on the Disney Dream

If you know me then you know my favorite way to vacation is on a cruise!  Wanted to share a quick re-cap of my recent three night cruise on the Disney Dream with you guys in case you haven't been on one yet and are wondering if you should go ahead and hit that "book it" button!  (Hint: you should!)

Kate Spade Pleated Drop Waist Dress

Neutral Navy | Off the Shoulder Top

To me navy is an absolute neutral.  It goes with everything and looks good on everyone.  You could consider it the 'summer black' because it is a bit brighter and softer.  

I am in love with this bell sleeve off the shoulder top from Bloomingdales (similar here and here)!  Off the shoulder (or OTS as you'll see on Instagram) has been on trend since the fall and I don't see it going anywhere for summer.  This top is special because it is truly navy.  I sometimes find it hard to find anything that is such a deep, rich navy.

The skirt is also from Bloomingdales (similar here), both pieces are from my favorite brand - Aqua.  The fitted style of the skirt makes it a perfect match for this flowy top.

My shoes are the Platinum/Gold Palm Beach Sandals, and my purse is a Kate Spade from a few years ago.  Last summer they had a very similar style but in pink!  Maybe navy will come back this year, or some other fun color!

I just had to share the last picture because as my husband and I were doing this shot the bird landed just so and it looks like we're talking - haha!  B says it looks like I'm Snow White summoning the animals!  

So - what do you think of navy?  Do you consider it a neutral or just a fun color to wear?
