All Black.

Sea Black Crop Top // The Stripe.
Sea Crop Top // Madewell Skirt (Similar) // Clare V Clutch // Seychelles Sandals // Metalepsis Necklace


When I spotted this SEA crop top (on pre-order at Moda Operandi… aka my kryptonite), I had to have it. You probably know by now that I am a huge, huge fan of SEA’s designs, but I was particularly excited for this crop top as I could wear it with all of my other favorites. It goes with all of my shorts + skirts and the cut out details keep things fun and fresh. They also have a matching skirt, which I didn’t buy because it felt a little dressy for my newly casual lifestyle, but it’s so, incredibly pretty.

Another quick little thing… my friend Lexi recently introduced me to the designer behind Metalepsis Projects and their pieces are so, so cool. Their designs are influenced by art, architecture, and science. This necklace (inspired by musical tuning frequencies) is a new favorite. It’s so unique & special.

  2. First off, this is a really nifty top! Second off, I like the idea of pairing crops with the highwaisted bottoms so that they no longer are crops. Anything that creates more versatility for my wardrobe is a solid win. Also, your necklace IS really cool, and reminds me of science, haha!

      yeah, you know, now that i think about it, i do this a lot! I have a ton of crop tops but I never actually reveal much skin (maybe a tiny sliver.) I like the way they add a different proportion to the look though, it’s fun to play around!!

  7. I love the crop top with the skirt! Very fashionable! I am also a big fan of wearing black on black (not all the time, I love color too!). Great accent choice with the clutch!
