Today I had fun with hubby as we explored the Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington, D.C. This is such a beautiful city, with good shopping and a lot of cultural landmarks to visit. We were only in town briefly to attend a graduation party, so we chose to visit this memorial before we ventured back home. Lately, I have been bored with shopping at the same places. One day, I walked into a local store called "Simply Fashions," that is next to a beauty supply store that I frequent. Most of the clothes are not the best quality, and it is not the most desirable atmosphere to shop in, but I found some cute items at very low prices. If you have one in your area check it out! I scored this crop top in that store for $5.00. I immediately knew that it was the perfect shirt to complete the "Wear A Cropped Top" section of the Big Fat Summer Challenge, that I have been obsessed with lately. Cropped tops are nothing new to me, and my readers who have been with me for awhile know that I enjoy wearing them. I love to expose just a little peek of skin without going to far. I knew that I wanted to be comfortable, so the pleated maxi skirt was the perfect match with the top. I was relaxed, and I had such a lovely day sightseeing!
