Curves Around the World: Polka Dots

Hello Lovelies! 

Well it's that time again for another "Curves Around the World" post and this weeks theme is Polka dots! I love me some Polka dots, it's one of my favorite prints. I have a lot of different polka dot items in my closet so it was a challenge to pick what to wear, I think it's always a challenge on what to wear with these themes because there is always several outfits I want to choose from. But since there is a heat wave right now in California and I decided to do a Summer look.  
So I chose this outfit because I've been wanting a crop top for awhile, I got the bandeau from Forever 21+ but I wanted a crop top that was a little longer. I've seen really pretty tops at a lot of different stores but none of them have ever fit me. But one day I was on the Target website and I saw this great crop top, that came in two great prints and they went up to size XXL. I don't usually buy things online but this top was only sold online and it was on sale so I thought it was a sign so I decided to get both one in XL and the other in XXL because I figured if one didn't fit I could always return the other one. But it turned out that they both fit me because the fabric is stretchy. 
So as you can tell the crop top that I'm showing you today is the polka dot one, this was the one that I got in XXL and I think it fits great. I've worn the other top a few times too it's a floral top but I've always covered up by wearing something over so you couldn't tell it's a crop top. But today I decided to bear the skin, especially in this heat. I like these bralette type crop tops because they don't show to much skin but just enough. What do you think of crop tops? Are they something you would wear?

Since my top is shorter then something I usually wear, I decided to balance it out with a longer skirt. I haven't actually worn this skirt before because I've always been uncomfortable with wearing such tight clothes and it's really long so I felt like it made me look shorter. But I think with the crop top it kind of makes me look longer and taller. What do you think does it make me look taller or is it just me? 
Since I was just going to run and do errands I decided to wear sandals to make the look a lot more casual. This clutch is one of my favorites that I rediscovered, I was cleaning my closet and I saw this baby tucked away in another bag and I said it was too pretty not to use. I love the colors and it has a strap too if I wanted to wear it on my shoulder. I think you will be seeing this bag more on my blog in the future. :)

    1. Thanks Shayne and I'm sure you would look awesome in one, once you wear it you don't even realize your showing more skin! But yeah I will try to think of an outfit to go with my tarina accessories, I haven't worn them in awhile!

    1. Thanks Joi, Target actually has another crop top that doesn't have the bra-like cutouts, you should check it out.

  7. You look great, Nina! Love the skirt and clutch! I just bough a below-the-knee skirt, and I love it. I thought it would make me look shorter too, but because the skirt is so pencil-y, it actually lengthens!
