Crop Top Smugglings

Over Memorial Day Weekend, I was trying to make moves, determined to maximize my whole three day weekend by spending it by some sort of beach, ocean, or pool. So when I heard about a event going down in one of my oldie but goodie favorite Malibu restaurants Gladstones, I knew I had to dress for the occasion. Already envisioning wanting to wear one of my many newly purchased low to high long summer skirts, I still didn't have a direction for what top I wanted to wear with it. Walking into a hangout session with my friends from Crime By Design earlier that day wearing one of my Topshop crop tops, we got inspired to cut one of their iconic "Smugglers" shirts and Laineify it into the perfect crop. Beachy and summery yet hipster and artsy just the way I like it, my outfit was nothing short of a hit at the beach, making everyone around me want to become a smuggler too.
