Today's post is somewhat different to my usual, being that 1. I have bare legs and my midriff showing and 2. I'm actually doing another OOTD. I've not done one since October (here) and quite frankly I'm not the most confident and really dislike my body at the moment.
I had the opportunity to review an item from an online store called Buy T-shirts Online. I chose an American Apparel Cotton Spandex Off-Shoulder Crop Top* as despite it still being chilly in March, it would be great for nights out, meals out and for casual wear over summer. I would have styled this with my high waisted New Look jeans but they're back at my family home in Liverpool whilst I'm 122 miles away in Newcastle.
The top is made from 95% Cotton and 5% Elastane so it is slightly stretchy, which helped because of the size of my chest. I chose a size M because as I'm normally a 10-12 in clothes, crop tops don't tend to be long enough or stretchy enough to cover my boobs. It is available to buy in sizes small to extra large so there should be a size for everyone! On the website, you can buy tops in multiples which will reduce the cost. Orders placed before 4pm on weekdays are sent on the same day for next day delivery.
I paired the black crop top with a floral skirt to brighten things up for a daytime look, and pushing my hair behind my shoulders made me feel more feminine, so I'll be making sure to pin my hair back during summer as it definitely makes the crop top look more flattering. For an evening or smarter look, I paired it with a midi skirt from Primark. To liven it up (and because my black heels are also in Liverpool) I wore simple coral heels from Primark too.
