It’s crazy that we’re practically in the middle of August already – which means that summer is almost over. Is it just me though, or does it feel like this summer is never-ending? To be honest, I am looking forward to cooler temperatures. Summer is usually my favorite season because of the warmth and longer days, but the heat is a bit too extreme in the desert for me to fully enjoy it. The AC in one of our cars decided to go out the other day when we drove out 3o minutes to shoot some looks, and the ride back in 118 degree weather with no AC was absolutely brutal. I felt like I was going to faint by the time we got home! On top of hydrating, keeping as cool as possible outside is so important when it’s hot. Lately, I have been beating the heat with crop tops. They are easy to wear, and super cute with high-waisted bottoms!
One of my staple crop tops over the past few years is this Brandy Melville crop cami. It’s several years old, and I couldn’t find it on their website anymore (go figure), but I found a similar style available for only $10 at Tilly’s! What a steal. I love that it’s lightweight, simple, and very versatile. In the summer, I wear it as is with high-waisted shorts, skirts, and pants. The best part is since it’s black and the material is decently thick, wearing a bra is optional. This is KEY for me when it’s scorching out! I pretty much never wear a bra anymore these days, if I can get away with it. In the cooler months, this crop top transforms into a wonderful layering piece – like a bralette under low-cut knit sweaters! Gotta love pieces that can be worn year-round, right?
Thinking about adding some more crop tops into your closet to breeze through the rest of the summer? Check out some of my favorites below! Happy shopping XO
