OOTD: Purple Crop Top

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!</p>

    Very nice outfit, you look veeeeery good in a short top and jeans. I am happy to hear that you can be a great mum, stunning looking wife, a hard core kitchen boss and a health master! Congrats for that flat stomach! You can use the terrace to then sometimes fast go and tire Lana out by letting her walk and run around for a while, instead of traveling all the way to a park.

    Awesome outfit – but what’s even better is how happy you look! Matthew’s a good ‘un for photo taking. When I ask my boy to take a pic he will do exactly one pic and hand the phone back. Normally with a blurry mess on it. x
