BFSC: ISLAND STATE OF MIND

I am in serious need of a vacation,since that is a long way off I will console my self by dressing like I am on vacation. I am really having a citrus moment,I have been graduating towards colors like chartreuse/citron.I was so happy when I scored this 100% silk skirt (brand new)while thrift-ing it was definitely my score of the summer.

Earring : F21  Bustier : DIY  Skirt : Thrift Shoes : Shop Hallelu

So happy that I have only three more pieces to cross off my BFSC list. I actually made this top three years ago when I was desperately on the hunt for a cropped bustier but couldn't find one that had big enough cups. I have to say I was definitely out of my comfort zone with this outfit cause typically when I wear items like this I usually, have to have a jacket or cover-up. Strapless anything (without outerwear) is a no-go area for me because of a combination of reasons my arms and bust. Wearing strapless tops especially when you are busty can be tricky finding the proper bra is key. Thankfully stores like Lane Bryant and torrid and brands like Fig-leaves, Just My Size and Bare Necessities are listening.   
P.S I have learned that the key to wearing crop tops when you are plus size is all about what you wear on the bottom 
hint:"high waisted"
