Cropped and covered in Simons


What can I say? I’m a crop top fanatic! Even when I’m not feeling like myself (ie. After too much pasta!) there is still nothing that compares to a little midriff baring in the sweet summertime! However, balance with the crop is always important and essential to each look. To be honest, you should always aim to have balance in all of your outfits; For example, wearing a crop top with high waisted pants/denim to give a sexy peek-a-boo effect.

My obsession with the colour Red is never ending so this Red blazer from Simons (similar, here and here) and this gorgie Matte lipstick (My fave!). I visited Simons after hearing about for years from all my Quebec guys & gals and was pleasantly surprised – typically when you hear the term department store, its not synonymous with trendy, fashion-forward pieces .. but I was actually able to find classic, timeless pieces mixed in with some of my favourite labels like Kate Spade, Free People and Finders Keepers. It has now become one of my must-visits when in Montréal, and would highly recommend it to any visitors!

So, back to the threads… We decided to shoot this little number at Sugar Beach – the most wonderful man made pseudo beach that has ever graced the GTA! Being close to the water allowed me to put my Balance skills to great use by having a lightweight blazer over top – but I still managed to keep it cool and chic with my fave cutoffs and barely there heels (similar here, here and here) to accentuate my legs and finish off the look. I accessorized with my go-to summer handbag and the ubiquitous yet ever-so-necessary aviators, my outfit was complete! How do you guys rock your crops? Are you all out, or do you add a bit of balance to your look? Tell me in the comments below!
