crop to the top

with summer's heat creeping upon us - okay it is already here because this week in nyc was hot - i keep finding myself reaching for one of my old favorite combos: the crop top paired with a high-waisted skirt. and bonus points if they match! crop tops are an amazing way to show off your waist and the entire skirt or bottom all while staying comfortable with the climbing temperatures. what are some of your favorite ways to stay cool and comfy during the summer?
