You fit me better than my favourite sweater..

I love, love, love this outfit that I modeled for Captainslocker last weekend! This jumper is so soft and cosy, I would literally wear this all the time if I hadn't had to give it back today ): I think this outfit is cute now that we are finally getting some spring weather, as you can keep warm but don't look like you're braving arctic conditions!

I got the pork-pie hat from Topshop last week after much contemplation.. It was £25.. which I know is a lot for a hat but it looks very high quality and I am sure I will wear it on bad hair days aha!

Speaking of hair, I've gone a little darker! Let me know what you think (:

Jumper: Captainslocker
Beaded collar and Pork-pie Hat: Topshop

Won't you come see about me?

The 90's is EVERYWHERE at the moment! And particularly in fashion; with the return of this decade we have seen the comeback of velvet, neons, aztec patterns and the crop top! Crop tops are a major trend for spring 2013 and they have been spotted on the runway and the red carpet (see pictures below). However, some of you may feel a bit anxious about bearing so much skin. It is a common misconception that only slender figures can pull off the crop top! They can look great on a variety of figures. As I am quite tall, I can get away with the shorts and crop top combo, but if you have a more hour-glass or even pear-shaped figure, a skater skirt or an A-line skirt looks amazing with a crop top, and it can bring your waist right in, making you look slimmer! 

Aztec patterns and crop tops were combined on the runway at Mara Hoffman fashion show for a true 90's vibe.

One of the things I love most about the crop top trend is that there is so much variety; you can find crop tops that are very pretty and feminine and others that are cool and casual. So there is a crop top for everyone really, not matter what your style preferences! Vanessa Hudgens looks so beautiful and delicate in her girlish take on the crop top in this ensemble she is wearing by Katharine Kidd. This approach to wearing the crop top will look cute on those with hour-glass or pear-shaped figures.

Kristen Stewart screams successful power woman in her version of the crop top trend which was designed by Balenciaga. 

Queen of cool, Rihanna rocks a simple crop top from her own collection at River Island. 

What I was wearing:
Crop top: Ark
Shorts: Captainslocker
Creepers: Captainslocker
