SWAK Designs Crop Top

Hi everyone!

I have a mini-haul from SWAK Designs that I have been styling up on my blog and this is the last outfit from my haul. Crop tops are the best thing that have happened to me and I really enjoy this particular style!

Bracelets – Max & Chloe
Earrings – thrifted – similar

I’m hoping it’ll work with boots and sweaters in the fall, too, though all ankle-tickling properties will be lost then. read more
