The Cake Lovers Crop Top

My obsession with the midi skirt is in full bloom this spring, I just love the way it brings a vintage feel to my wardrobe and cant help but feel super feminine and chic when I’m sporting one….psssst, does anyone else do the swirly dance in front of the mirror when they feel like that?...just me? I digress. 
I also have a particular love for print, show me a floral printed anything and I will buy it (although I’m also partial to anything with cats on it, but that’s a whole other story and a whole other obsession which no doubt we will touch upon in future posts….my apologies in advance for that.)

Two beautiful printed midi skirts under my belt, I needed a crop top that would perfectly compliment the high waistline but not overwhelm the bold colourful print and more importantly NOT flash too much flesh as, to say I enjoy cake would be a massive understatement.

Cue Fashion Union Crop T-Shirt with mesh insert. I love the way the main panel of this tee finishes right on the high waistline tricking the eye into thinking its shorter than it is and allowing the print of the skirt to peep through the mesh panel still gives the illusion of a longer leg (and lets face it I need all the help I can get in that department). The mesh panel and thick black hem also mean that I have that extra bit of coverage on the midriff and can feel confident in moving around and sitting down without fear of flashing too much flesh and the dreaded muffin top rearing it's ugly head. The cut of the tee is that perfect combination of casual effortlessness and edgy, pair me with a skinny jean and killer heels, kinda vibe. All in all, a fantastic find and a great way to play around with the crop top trend if, like me, you enjoy cake a little too much.
