Every once in a while up north, we get a wave perfect temperature - despite it being winter, and despite the wrath of El Niño. And when we get a wave like this, we timidly take advantage. I say timidly, because we're very aware of how fast the temperature can change right back. 

I've been finding new ways to incorporate crop tops into my looks throughout the winter - I love layering them over button ups, or t-shirts, but I also love to wear them under a jacket and just flash the teensiest big of skin. It's a tamer way of adding a little sex appeal - and it's actually a great alternative to a little bodycon for holiday festivities. 

Are you starting to think of holiday attire yet?
