Crop It!

This past Tuesday I met up with fellow fashion blogger Karen (of Curvy Canadian). It had been a long time since I saw her last (she came out to Big, Fat Toronto) and we had some major catching up to do. Obviously, I wanted to impress Karen. Its not everyday you get to hang out with a fellow fashion blogger so I thought I’d use this opportunity to wear my very first crop top.
I had purchased a black mini the day before and I was itching to use it. Even though August is almost over, getting a mini skirt in black was my number one priority this summer. I have to take advantage of the time I have left and wear this skirt in every way possible. I’m not too keen on wearing mini skirts with tights and I can’t fathom tucking it away just yet. So, thankfully my meet up with Karen gave me the perfect opportunity. I nabbed this top at Big, Fat Toronto and wanted to turn it into a crop top. The design is really interesting but probably the busiest I’d ever do. Oddly enough, this shirt used to be Karen’s and I didn’t even know that until she told me when we saw each other. 
Karen and I chatted away, visited Addition Elle and after all that was done, we had an impromptu photoshoot near my place. The weather was a bit gloomy and that morning it poured like crazy but that did not stop us from enjoying the sun that was peaking through. Her boyfriend snapped a few shots of us “casually strolling” down the street and they just had to be turned into a GIF.

I really did have a great time with Karen and I can’t wait to see her again this Sunday for an event we’re both doing. There’s something really lovely about having a group of fashion bloggers who also feel strongly about the size acceptance movement. Karen was such a pleasure to be around and, of course, she looked absolutely precious. I nearly cancelled our date but I couldn’t not see her after she told me she had gotten dressed up for me. I had a small moment of insecurity while walking around the mall showing my midriff but being in her company really helped remind me that there simply wasn’t anything to worry about.
