When I first think of cropped tops or midriff’s I think of young, teenybops prancing around in booty shorts with their flat stomachs exposed. What I don’t think of is a thirty something mom of two beboppin’ around in one.
But, I tend to think that age doesn’t have to put a restriction on certain styles (unless it’s booty shorts, then there is most definitely an age limit. Or just no one should wear them). I usually tell my customers it’s all in how your style it-whatever ‘it’ is, that makes it age appropriate.
I saw this cropped sweater when I was at the Loft the other week for my styling event. My friend Lena loved the pants, so I went on the hunt for a top to match. I initially thought a fitted tank would look adorable tucked in (which I still think it would), but then I saw this cropped sweater and loved it even more!
I loved the outfit so much on her that I tried it on and ended up with it too! This whole outfit was a little out of my comfort zone, but it was comfy, and it totally grew on me!

Moral of the story-don’t let your age hinder what you might try! You never know what something will look like unless you give it a try!!
