Newark is known for it's violence and probably Cory Booker. But, the more time I spend there, the more I fall in love. I'm absolutely having a secret rendezvous in Newark. You can usually find me enjoying the libraries, museums, murals and parks. It's rich with history and culture. Yes, there is violence but there is also a lot to love.
Unlike Brooklyn, where there is a hipster on every corner, trying to find a piece of black culture to appropriate, Newark is relatively hipster free...trust me though...that won't last long. In about 5 or so years Newark will experience the same sought of insane gentrification that Brooklyn has. Before that happens, take a little time to enjoy it.
Like Newark, cropped tops are often maligned but they have so much to offer. They are really versatile, you can dress them up with a pencil skirt or rock them with casual pants. This outfit was so comfortable and perfect for exploring new loves.
Be sure to check back for my tips on rocking a crop top.
In the meantime you can catch me in Newark, in a cropped top, sippin' on an "Uptown."
