Clearly, I enjoy a cropped sweater, since this is the third time I have posted one in the last couple of months. Why? Because you really can wear them in many ways that are flattering for all body types, even if you are shy about actually showing anything close to your stomach.
Last week, I did a bonus outfit of a cropped sweater of a button down shirt I wore to a meeting. This week, it was my shopping outfit. Functional, stylish, and wearing a number of trends from this spring!
While I think your reusable shopping bags are also a total must, really I decided I wanted to wear my overalls. The weather is still chilly in Maine (notice the shorts), so the cropped sweater was the perfect combo to keep me warm, while still showing just a touch of skin. I love this purple stripped one too, but combining it with overalls helped me to feel less self conscious, while still playing with fashion trends. I paired it with a white cross body bag for function, and an awesome pair of chunky ankle boots, which give me height without the problems of trying to shop in a more narrow heel.
Also, since this early morning shopping trip did not involve me washing my hair beforehand, I did a great upside down french braid as a way to contain my second day hair!
