This crop top and midi skirt is probably my favorite outfit I’ve worn in quite some time.  While I know what looks good on my body, I can’t help but want to try out new trends.  Bermuda shorts, mini skirts, leg warmers with ankle booties, lots of hair braids – I love all of these trends on other gals but they don’t really do anything for my body.  Crop tops and midi skirts?  This is a trend I gladly embrace.

I have always had a lean torso and carry my bulk in my bum and thighs – I’ve been told have my grandmother’s figure who I never got to meet but I’ve seen photos and can totally see it.  Thanks for thighs, Bette!  I love a full or flowy skirt that hides this while accentuating my waist.  It gives me a little shape which is nice.  But don’t get me wrong, I love a comfy, loose top and shift dress… although Christian isn’t a fan of loose clothes on me. Not that I really care, obviously I dress for myself.  BOOM! #makingCarrieBradshawproud

So forgive me for sharing too many photos of this top + skirt combo – I’m just quite obsessed with it and love winter white this time of year!

  1. Your outfit is lovely, but as a wife of a doctor I can understand why your husband is not a fan of the look. Please remember you are not only representing yourself, but you are representing him and his career also.

    1. Seriously? This screams class, youth, and style.

      It’s also California – Kat do you! Beautiful! I’m sure that is in NO WAY what Christian means.

    2. Thank you for your honesty and opinion. I’m sorry if the text was confusing – my husband actually loves this outfit, he doesn’t like it when I wear baggy clothes! But I wear baggy clothes anyway because they’re comfy and I could never ditch my boyfriend jeans. Thank you for reading and for sharing your feedback and advice. XO

  2. I never post comments, however… I greatly applaud and respect your comment on the fact that you dress for yourself. All too often people do things to appease other people, losing sight of themselves. I often wouldn’t wear things based on what others (or largely my boyfriend) would say or think, missing out on the whole reason I love fashion/style as a way to express myself. Also, as a doctor, I think you should dress however you like and I do not see this outfit or any outfit you have ever posted as questionable for the medical profession (not like you’re romping around the hospital in a crop top seeing patients). Your outfits are always so tasteful and give me so many great ideas for my own style! Lastly, I know as you become an increasingly successful blogger its easy to start posting more expensive items but I greatly appreciate your budget-friendly wardrobe that allow us (with lots of medical school debt) to remain fashionable! Keep being you, absolutely love your blog!

    1. Thank you for sharing your kind words! Totally agree with you – I’ve always expressed myself through the way I present myself in style and clothing and if I feel confident, that means so much more to me. I know I’m not the only woman out there who feels that way! Thank you for reading and sharing your feedback. XO

    1. This trend is for you girlfriend! Midi skirts are so flattering on those who are hiding some hips – if you try it out let me know what you think! XO

  3. I almost never comment, but I had to on this look. Absolutely beautiful, sophisticated and classy. I think this look is perfectly appropriate for any young women (and strongly disagree with the previous comment that sets woman’s lib back a few decades…) Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you should be a reflection of anyone but your beautiful self!

    1. I just want to respond with #GIRLPOWER. Thank you for your kind words and the vote of confidence! Cheers to you and your adorable blog – and I want every small dog in that collage. Not kidding. XO

  4. You look so amazing! I am built like you, but I have not fully embraced this trend; however, after seeing you in this gorg outfit, I think I may need to find something similar for myself 😉 Love your blog!!

    1. If you are built like me you should absolutely try a midi skirt – so incredibly flattering if you want to show off your waist and maybe hide the hips! If you try it let me know what you think! XO

    1. Thank you Elizabeth! I don’t feel confident in everything – but these combo made me feel like a million bucks – and those outfits are the favorite ones!! Thank you for reading and for your kind words. XO

  5. I think this is classy yet trendy and beautiful…:I’m very perplexed as to why a commenter would say you have to represent your husband and his career? What is this, 1950? I’ve never seen you look anything but classy.

  6. My favourite outfit EVER!! I feel like I say this a lot with all the gorgeous things you wear and how great you look in them, but this outfit takes the cake. You look amazing and you are totally rocking it! Love your confidence!

    1. Carly you’re always just the NICEST! I think the best thing a gal can learn is how to dress for her body, right? Thanks for your always sweet words! XO

  7. Omgsh you look stunning!! I loved reading this too 🙂 I am shaped a lot how you describe–but I love that you aren’t trying to change it–you just dress in what works for you! And you are KILLING it!


    1. Love how you put that!! Girl, if we have the same figure you know you can’t change it – all you can do is learn to dress for your body and go for it. Thank you for the motivation and for your kind words!! XOXO to you –

  8. You look stunning, and so so chic!! And I carry all of my weight and muscle in my butt, hips and thighs too, so I feel ya! I’ve been all about the crop top + a-line skirt trend (and wore it for the majority of my honeymoon in August), so I just absolutely love this!


    1. Oh my gosh I wish this had been a trend on my honeymoon – love that!! I know you looked amazing – you always do! XO
