    Love your style! Crop tops are my favorite outfits for summer and I got great idea from your blog. Thanks a lot for sharing.

      Thank you Lisa! It took a while for me to start wearing them, but now I think crop tops are great. Definitely a summer staple 🙂

    Girl, you’re totally rocking that crop top! And your physique looks chiseled, because I can see how much dedication you must be putting into it. 🙂 I would love to see you write a blog post on five exercise moves you love doing for the abs.

      Thank you!! A few years ago, I noticed I was feeling a little down and I wasn’t exercising or eating well, so I made the decision to work harder. I don’t feel that my abs really show yet, but if I keep this routine up for a while longer, then I will definitely share what I’m doing. 🙂

      Did you use to wear them? This is a real first for me. I’ve had one or two in the past, but I never felt confident. xx

          I’ve seen so many different people wear them who all have different body types. But I get what you mean because I’ve spent the majority of my life avoiding them. I love your style though xxx

      Thank you! I’ve spent the last decade shying away from them because I kept telling myself that I’d wait till I get abs…still waiting lol! I will have a look this summer for some more. x

      Thank you gorgeous! I have two crop tops in my wardrobe, so I might take the plunge and buy more for summer. xx

      Thank you girl!! I agree, if you feel awkward in your outfit – no matter how chic or stylish, it just doesn’t work. xx

    I absolutely love crop tops. When I was in high school, and super thin, I felt self-conscious in my body. Now that I’ve gotten older and gained weight, surprisingly I am comfortable in them. While I do have moments where I feel like I’m not thin enough to wear them, but I realized that no matter how skinny you are if you slouch a certain way, your stomach is going to puff out. I’ve been working out a lot, but to be honest, that isn’t what’s affecting whether I wear crop tops or not. Crop tops tend to make me feel more confident. Great post ! You honestly look so amazing. We tend to see the worst in ourselves, but I’m telling you, you look really beautiful xxx

      That’s so true. Posture makes such a difference! I guess I do feel better wearing a crop top when I think that I’m better in shape, but I don’t think that you have to look a certain way to wear one.
      Thank you for that compliment as well, it made me smile! xx

    Great post. It is your life and body. And after time and sacrifice in the gym, you wear what you want.
    Good quotes, especially the Donatella Versace one.

    Be happy. Be well. And be proud of the way you look.

      Thank you, I saw yesterday your post on closing your blog. I actually received a comment from one of those ‘haters’ and it just made me laugh.
      Keep doing you and I appreciate your thoughts.

      • thelonelyauthorblog says

        You are kidding me. Sorry, you received anything. You and your blog are wonderful stops of peace and wisdom.

        I will continue to plug away. Thanks for the encouragement.

          Don’t worry about it. I simply moved the comment to spam and continued with my life 🙂
