LookBook: Crop Top on Repeat

c44This crop top is the perfect length for me.  I’m not all fit and toned in the abs area so I don’t want to show more then a little peek of my tummy.  So I needed something that basically hit right at where all my high waisted skirts and such would hit.  Bingo!  I did get a super awesome tip recently (but too late for this find) from one of my stylist buddies to look for Tall crop tops.  So that way you’re getting the extra length without the extra width.  Genius!

LookBook: Starting The Year Off Right


I love the New Year.  It’s a definitive date for you to reset all the things in your life that have gone astray.  For me, my blog has really taken the back burner for many lame reasons and excuses.  As an old band teacher once said, “Excuses are tools of mediocrity from which we build monuments of nothing.”  So, gosh darn it, I’m going to get this blog back on track!  Besides, I really enjoy doing it and another not-necessarily-a-resolution thing I want to change is to do more things that make me happy!  It’s so easy to get caught up in getting stuff done that you forget to take a minute to have a little fun!  Here are my resolutions for the year!

1)  Post to my blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  (Help hold me to it, Lovely Readers!)

2)  Get together with my girlfriends once a month.  It doesn’t have to be something epic every month but we’re starting January with a little wine tasting trip.

3)  Drink more water!  From the feeble amount of research I’ve done, I should drink 2.2 Liters of water a day.  So I purchased a 1 Liter Nalgene bottle to carry around and drink 2 refills a day.

Ta Da!  Totally doable, right?
