Freya is the goddess of love, fertility, battle, and death in Norse mythology. She’s a badass goddess in my book and she would rock this cropped top.
The Freya Cropped Top is constructed from the bottom up. You can easily add more length to vary how “cropped” it is. There is simple shaping and i-cord straps. The lace design is on one side however the top is reversible where the lace side can be worn on the front of the back.
