OOTD: Purple Crop Top

Posted on

I never thought I’d sport a crop top at my age and especially not after giving birth – but after becoming a mother I’m somehow more comfortable in my own skin than ever before. Obviously my “mature” age also plays a role, plus that my tummy seems to be flatter post-birth (!!!) It might be just in my head, but still!

Anyhoo, after talking a reluctant Matthew into quickly snapping a few photos of my Saturday outfit this is what I ended up with… Again, more practise is required – I forgot to get a photo with the jacket off so you could see the autumnal top properly…And there was no time for any close ups. But at least I realised that our deserted communal back terrace is ideal for doing outfit shoots 🙂

If you’re wondering why I’m wearing sunnies on a cloudy day it’s because I’m now so used to wearing sunglasses that I often find daylight too bright for my eyes. And this is coming from someone who thought the feeling of wearing glasses was so horrendous that I opted for contact lenses back in the days and never wore sunnies haha! Also, my oldest friends will know that I hardly ever used to wear jeans or trousers either, I was the “skirt girl” – so this outfit is basically something I would never have worn before!

The back terrace is quite big and hardly anyone ever uses it for anything but drying clothes – maybe we’ll have a BBQ there one day!
