Hello! Temperatures continue to remain low in Philadelphia (as you can tell by my red face in the photo) and I continue to layer, layer, layer. Despite the freezing temperatures, I chose to wear a crop top today. I know, I know- what was I thinking? But if worn correctly and layered with other pieces, you can still stay warm wearing a crop top!
Okay but first let me talk a little bit about this crop top. This is the "Daisies Crop Top by Jac Vanek" that retails for $49 HERE on ShopLately. Unfortunately, this top is now sold out. I guess it was a pretty hot commodity, huh? It has two daisies on the front of the shirt that you can't really see in this photo but they are beyond adorable. I can't wait to wear this top with my daisy flower crown later this year! Now onto how to wear a crop top in the freezing cold.
The first step is to pair it with a pair of high-waisted bottoms like this high-waisted skirt so that minimal (if any) skin is showing. Next, I layered on a pair of fleece-lined tights followed by a simple pair of gray tights followed by a pair of black knee-high socks. This combination definitely kept my legs nice and toasty.
I then layered a cozy gray cardigan over top of the crop top followed by a nubby black and white cardigan. I added yet another layer over that with my furry leopard print coat. If this isn't the perfect combination to keep warm in the freezing cold while still wearing a crop top then I don't know what is!
Doc Martens kept my feet warm while also preventing me from slipping around dozens of times with all of the snow and ice that still covers the pathways. I accessorized with a handful of rings, a plentitude of necklaces and a stylish pair of sunglasses.
