BFSC Wear a cropped top

Met up with Kelly B from MasqueMag a few days ago in the city to check out MYNT 1792 Showroom, which was amazing FYI :P. More on that later...
...and of course we had to snap some outfit pictures at Bryant Park.
I wasn't sure if I was going to check off "wear a cropped top" or "wear something high waisted" So I decided to combine it and decide later, so I decided to go with cropped top, because I scored a really nice sheer high waisted maxi skirt in a really nice aqua color that I'm going to wear later as "something high waisted". :) Excited, it's the first piece I've ever bought at a Kmart and it was only 10$. Even the girl at the register asked where I got it and wanted one for herself as well. SCORE!
Never in my life have I worn a cropped top like this, I mean I did when I was a kid I'm pretty sure but even then I was uncomfortable about showing off my tummy. I think I was around 13 years old and was a part of a dance performance at a Philippines association event. I was wearing a cropped top with a pair of mid-waist denim shorts and canvas boots, dancing a routine to the old school song Macarena. Ha-ha! I was already body conscious at that young age, I was not fat or overweight at that time or anything I was robust. Bigger compared to all the other girls. My mom is really short and petite and my dad is tall and big so, I became short and big. :P
I don't mention it very often but I am Half Filipina, I should recognize my other half more often because I mostly think of myself as a Swedish girl, however I don't look stereotypical Swedish even though I behave very much as a Swedish person. For example a bit Reserved and always polite.
I AM very proud of my Filipino roots.
My mom and my sister are there right now, and I wish I could have been with them, I miss the Philippines and it would be so nice to see my relatives again.
