Crop tops are one of a few re-emerging 90s trends that I love but had yet to really incorporate into my own style. I’ve owned this one for a while, but hadn’t found the right opportunity to wear it. Maybe because it’s a little more revealing than most of my other tops, or because its wear is pretty limited to warmer weather, but for whatever reason, it’s been sitting in my closet for the last year. I packed it with me for my trip to Miami, hoping I might finally make use of it, and I was so glad I did because as soon as we stepped out in South Beach, I realized how well it fit in. In fact, everything I packed was far from risqué in comparison to all of the bodycon dresses and high heels around the city. And regardless, there’s just something fun about taking more fashion risks on vacation, and Miami was the perfect city to do just that.
