Free Range


ASOS animal crop top

If you look closely, you can see the minor damage I did to my right knee from falling down at work. Because apparently that wasn’t just for my days of running around a busy restaurant, but also when I work in an office and trip over computer cords. I guess I will always be entertaining coworkers with my spills. Clumsy for life.



top: ASOS (on sale!)
skirt: vintage- estate sale
hat: F21
shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
bracelet: DIY
necklace: in my shop


I never thought I’d be on board with another crop top trend, but unlike the early 2000s, this time around they only see the light of day with high waisted skirts. It’s funny how “never-will-I-ever-wear-that-again” can be modified to “yeah-maybe-I-will-but-I-swear-I’ll-do-it-better-this-time”.

    You are too cute… bruised knee and all. Love this skirt and that crop top!!! I think I have that hat as well. Gotta love Forever 21 for all those cute hats they keep us fashion bloggers wearing. Ha ha.

    This is one of my favorite outfits you’ve worn. I’m totally dying over that top, am in love with that skirt, and am jealous of all of your pretty DIY accessories! You’re killin’ it, lady!

    This is a fun print, and the hat unexpectedly goes really well with it. I love that straw boaters are so versatile.

    That skirt is so wonderful! What a great find. My dad always called me Miss Grace thanks to my clumsiness, and I impress my boyfriend with my propensity for spills, dropping things and just general awkwardness. Yay clumsy for life club!

    This is such a great outfit! The color of that skirt is bold and bright. So perfect.

    Gah, the print on this top is amazing! I am so with you on the crop top thing. I never thought I’d like them, but they really are adorable with high-waisted things. I love this skirt too! And one of these days I’m going to buy a necklace like this from your shop. I’m still obsessed.

    You look lovely, your straw hat is just gorgeous! I really love your necklace too, I didn’t realise you sold these so I will have to check it out :) I love the crop top trend, but I never wear them (or rarely anything, for that matter) without something hig waisted! xx

  11. Katie says:

    Oh, what a darling outfit! The top is so fun with all of those animals :) Your last point is why I can’t ever get rid of my favorite clothes-I figure they will always come back in style one way or another, right?! Also, your skirt’s pockets are the best.

  12. Wonderful look! The proportions are great and totally different form the last time cropped tops were big. I love the safari pattern on your top and the necklace is great too! I’ll have to check out your store.

    LOVE the print on this top – I’m too scared to wear cropped tops but I guess wearing them with a high waisted skirt is a good idea.

    That’s a lovely and fun top!

    I totally know what you mean. I feel like I’ve been saying that about a lot of things like denim jackets, vests, crop tops, houndstooth. Haha. I’ve changed my mind about all of those, but with the determination to go beyond the norm. You created a beautiful outfit here! I’m in love with that skirt! Oh, the pockets! ^_^

    Oh, I hope your knee doesn’t hurt anymore! I’m very clumsy, too, always tripping and accidentally hitting my foot on furniture, haha.

    And that top is everything! ;)

  19. This might be one of my fav outfits ever of yours Lisa! so so cute. that classic cut skirt w/ the pockets is just perfect on you (& that length never flatters me so I extra love it on you!). Def a great take on the crop top.
