I love clothes. That’s blatantly obvious! The clothes I buy usually fall into two different categories. Clothes for occasions or clothes for bumming around in. So when I’m faced with an outfit that I can see fit both these two categories utterly and completely I snap those items up. Today I’m wearing a matching cropped top and pants by my current favourite label Alice McCall. I fell in love with this check print upon sight but when I started dissecting different ways in which I could wear this ensemble I knew they would be key items in my wardrobe.




 Besides the print what makes this outfit special is the transparent short under those pants and the arch of the crop top. Both details add an element of intrigue as well as the right amount of peekaboo factor. I love the embroidery details that adds a bit of boho to the entire look taking it from street to tea-party appropriate.



I can’t wait to wear these items as separates with other items in my wardrobe. The pants can be teamed with a tee, leather jacket and sneaks for a more casual relaxed look. The top could be worn with overalls or a denim skirt…
