Holiday Week – The Crop Top

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion, Travel.


Usually, the words ‘crop’ and ‘top’ would strike fear into my size 12 heart. I’m not particularly fond of my middle section so flashing it about is not top of my fashion priorities. But, when faced with 30 degree heat I quickly realised that I don’t actually care that much about a bit of extra podge.

H&M have a cracking range of crop tops at the moment – this seashell style isn’t quite as short as other belly-baring versions which makes it much easier to wear. Teamed with my trusty cut-offs and a lightweight cardigan to keep off an early morning chill, it was the perfect outfit for a day out on the river.


What are your thoughts on crop tops?



Nice photos. Don’t you find denim a bit hot in that kind of heat? No sign of podge 🙂


Thank you Anon!

Weirdly, these particularly shorts are the only denim I can wear when it’s really hot. I think maybe because they’re a bit big, they’re quite loose and, erm, airy! Haha! x


Jen you look fab and have a great body. I’m really looking forward to trying this trend on my next holiday. Always easier to try trends when no one knows you and you don’t get strange looks. x


Thank you, Lizaboo! You’re very kind.

I absolutely agree, it’s much easier to try things slightly out of your comfort zone when you’re away from home and people who know you. I’m not sure I’d wear this outfit now I’m back on home turf! x
