Short blogging hiatus while I was playing maid of honour to my best friend's wedding. What an exciting time for her! Anyway, back to the post at hand, this crisscross crop by Carven has been on my radar for quite some time and although I originally wanted it in black, after seeing the optic white version in an editorial in Jalouse magazine, I was sold. Rosie just makes anything look sexy. And that's hard to do with this top being basically made out of 2 large arm slings. That's kinda why I love it though. Paired here with some silky scalloped shorts for some delicacy and then a complete 180º with these iconic Balenciaga boots that are really good for stomping and asserting confidence in oneself. 
Have a good weekend everyone!

  41. Congrats to your sweet friend! But as for this post – I am swooning over that criss-cross top. I have one very similar to it, but never thought to pair it with black shorts and stunner shades for an altogether "cool" look. Needless to say I am big fan of your style and your blog. XOXO
