Fringe and Lace

______So recently I did something I would never normally do and wore what's basically a longline bra as a crop top. I'm pretty sure my pale stomach blinded anyone who attempting to judge me for it, rendering their opinion on useless as they stumbled into walls and blundered over thin air. But in all honesty, it was one the comfiest "tops" I've ever worn, especially considering how hot and sticky it is outside in this scorching Alabama heat. That being said, I fully encourage anyone who is someone out there to consider the bralette-as-shirt-when-it's-hotter-than-Alexander-Skarsgard-when-he's-shirtless-at-the-beach look.

______This is a real look. I promise you. Just google it and you will understand.

______Really. I'll google it for you.

______I'm done being a creep on the interweebs now. I hope you all survive the heat, and if you don't have the heat, enjoy it and drool over some ice cream anyway. And tell me your favorite ice cream flavor as well. I'm a big fan of Moose Tracks, mostly because I like to pick the fudge out of it.

lol you're funny. You made it so easy for us to see what you were talking about in regards to that googled image.

Girl, you do you. People always ALWAYS stare when I/we/you/any girl wears a crop top. I think it's such a cute look. But the thing that people don't realize is that it's practical in the summer. Oh,...and did I mention it's cute? ;)

I love your necklace and shawl.

I wouldn't have thought to wear a bralette as a crop top, but you pull it off so well! It is super hot where I am too and I find myself wishing I could just walk around in my bathing suit. Haha!

You're rocking this crop top/bralette and yes, definitely the perfect piece for a hot, humid heat like Alabama's. That fringed kimono is the quintessential summery cover up too :D
Bahaha, thanks for completing my day by Googling that for us - I clicked over and instantly felt like I needed to sit by the A/C...
Oooh, and as for ice cream - lavender ice cream

This is my new life motto. Love it.

Also, you ROCK the ever living out of this look. Get it!

Love the kimono!

I think wearing a bra as a top has become a lot more acceptable since Sue Ellen Mischke did it, especially now that crop tops are trending and often come very close to looking like bras in and of themselves!

Plus I'm sure everyone was to mesmerized by the gorgeous print on your kimono to be blinded by your white midriff.

Ali, I can never get over your writing--you somehow always manage to weave the quirkiest, cleverest, and most unexpected statements into your posts. I can't get over your joke about wearing the bralette as a top and how you googled shirtless Alexander Skarsgard for us.

Anyways, you're absolutely killing it! I'm in love with that kimono, and you definitely rock that bralette. Alter'd State has some of the loveliest pieces, and you have the most impeccable taste! That statement necklace also shouts summer and your bow ring is the cutest thing!

Sending you much love always <3

This is a perfect outfit for our hot southern summers! I love a good crop top and miss being able to wear them as often since I work in an office. It's just so hot and that extra breeziness is great. I love the kimono you've styled with this too. Such pretty colors!
