Summer and this heat has been excruciating! No, LA is not as hot as some cities, but it still gets pretty damn hot for us Californians. I am constantly trying to find ways to wear lighter clothing without walking around feeling completely exposed. I have always been an outspoken fan of cropped tops because they still haven’t gone out of style so far, and they make everything fun and flirty! I picked this one up from American Apparel when they had their closing sale. I love the open back of this top because it can seriously be a more sexy feature than the chest. And if you’re worried about revealing too much, you can always wear a bandeau top like I did.

I love Madewell jeans because they have different lengths for tall or petite person like me. It’s so hard to find jeans as a short person because the length never fits right. I usually cuff the bottoms anyway, but I still like the sides to be nicely tapered. Madewell seriously makes some of the best affordable jeans, and it cuts at the right place on my knee (all my short girls know this problem)!
As always, thanks for the read!
