A Lacey Perspective: Summer Heat

Summer arrived in DC with a vengeance this past week: 90 degree weather, muggy and no breeze at all. So what’s the best way to make the most of this hot weather? Try out a new trend and go grab frozen margaritas.

As soon as crop tops came back onto the scene I instantly thought I could never pull that off with my body type. After pinning many pictures of others looking fabulous and scrolling through the internet day-in and day-out looking for the perfect crop top, I think I have found the best one for me.

I’m not saying that crop tops are for everyone, or that you are going to see me in crop tops on the regular now, but I am saying that it is worth a shot. You may surprise yourself, as I did, that you can make any trend work for you as long as you make it YOURS. Feminine, a full skirt to balance out my full chest, and a more retro cut is what makes this trend work for me.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Speaking of summer heat, I think it is time to chop my hair short now that I am past the wedding. Looking at this pic as inspiration. Thoughts?

This is such a perfect hot summer day outfit! Props for trying a trend that was a challenge for your body type. It takes courage!


I went with the crop top plus full longer skirt this weekend and was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the look — such a great option for steamy DC summer days!


LOVE this look! You look awesome!


Don’t cut your hair…I love that you can put it up or wear it down…on a personal note regarding full chest…what type of undergarment are you wearing under this top? I have the same problem being full chested and wearing strapless clothing…strapless bras are the worst :-/ Thanks for the inspiration always – Tina


I love this look on you so much! As a curvier gal myself, I worry about how I’ll look in a crop top, but I love how you styled yours! I think this is definitely a look I could try myself because the vintage full skirt gives it a retro and feminine vibe. Love it!


LOVE this on you! You look so sexy and chic all at the same time :)


That skirt–swoon! This is such a perfect crop top look.



I am trying to find a good crop top! Love how you paired the simple top with such a bold skirt!
