Now I love a good crop top but being plus size I find it hard to style them on their own and as winter is now in full swing in the UK this means I can get away with LAYERING. I love layering, it's probably my favourite thing about winter...other than Christmas obviously! This also means playing around with crop tops which I bought a few of over summer but never had the confidence to wear!

Here's a few ways i'd wear them, (very few because i'm meant to be working, I'll add more another time or as I wear them!)

I LOVE the detail on this toppers crop so adding a plain blouse underneath I think looks really cute, even a printed blouse I'd also add a chunky necklace, plain black or high-waisted wet look leggings and probably a fur gilet. I like to mix up the textures in my outfits!

Completely forgot I had this dress until I was searching through my wardrobe to style this crop! I like the high collar on this tarten crop but as it's tight fitted and REALLY SHORT I do not have the confidence to wear it on it's own! 
I'd probably style it with a chunky necklace, a chunky black belt around the waist of this midi dress, probably my chunky black boots and tights if it's freezing!

I bought this jumper from and bought it in an XXL as I wanted it super oversized! It's also from US so even bigger than expecting and was way too long for me so I got me scissors and snipped it! It is now cropped at the front and the hem dips low at the back with a raw edge which I love because it has a roll to it! I like to pair this with my pleather skirt, blouse underneath, tights and boots or converse for a more casual look (perf for uni!)

I know I don't have many examples but might help you have a think about what you can style your crops with, even if you do have the figure to wear them on their own there's nothing wrong with a bit of layering! 

Right back to the never ending uni work!! HURRY UP MAY!

Christmas Lights

Last week me and my best friend/ housie went to watch the Meadowhall light switch on in Sheffield but we got there a mere 6 hours before hand to do just a spot of shopping. I didn't buy much as on a tight budget and some of what I did buy were Christmas presents from other people. Weird I know but I'm hard to buy for!

I wanted to wear something comfy and not too warm as I HATE being boiling whilst shopping it's the worst! Thought this outfit was pretty fitting.
