Cropped & Cobalt!

Hello & happy Friday!  Time flies! It seems I was just in Ohio last Friday with mom when we went shopping.  But that's not surprising right?!  I had been looking for blue shoes so when I saw these, I loved the cobalt-like blue color which is on trend now, but even loved more the shape of the heel.  As for the skirt, I also loved the color, the jacquard fabric, but also that it can be worn as a high waist. 

I'd like to think of my style as trendy but I won't try every single trend.  The MC Hammer pant trend was one I overlooked.  One trend I was not sure about was the crop top.  I think if not well put together, can look trashy.  Also, I'd not been exercising while in school and to put it nicely, my abs could be more toned.  So the thought of a crop top was a definite no until I decided to pair it with the high waist skirt.  By doing so, very minimal midriff was exposed and I liked the look better.  The heels also matched the print color of the skirt which was easy to pair.
