I’m here in Jamaica and it is so beautiful.
I’m waking up at the crack of dawn to a view of the sun rising over a big expanse of ocean. We’re staying at Sandals Royal Plantation resort. This is the first time I’ve gone on a resort style vacation and so far it has totally blown my expectations. Yesterday I accidentally broke a pair of the sandals I brought with me. I was trying to sew the leather back together and I left the shoes sitting on the desk in the room. When I came back in the evening they had been mended. I didn’t even ask, they just found them and fixed them. Seriously, that is crazy amazing service.
Weeee! Spring is here.
Spring in Zurich is the best thing ever. It’s sunny and warm. The trees and flowers are blooming. It’s calm. You can’t help but get a tan. After weeks and weeks of it being -15 degrees the shift in temperature is heavenly. Let’s not talk about the weather though, let’s talk midriffs. What do we think people? Are they best saved for the catwalk? Can they work on real streets with real people? Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. The thing is, regardless of how razor-sharp your abs might be (and trust me, I know we all have abs that could cut glass) it takes a lot of confidence to rock a belly baring top. Depending on how cropped you go they can start to resemble a bra top and I’m just not sure how that will go down in the city. Maybe it’s a look best saved for weekend breaks away… hmmm. What do you reckon?
I decided to rock this Patouf cropped top with a little white t-shirt underneath because I’m just not ready to embrace the midriff full on. I love this top, by the way. It’s a little sci-fi crazy with its silver sheen and structured shape. I like that. It means I can pretend to be on the Starship Enterprise while I walk around town (much to my husband’s distaste). I want to wear it with something seriously fierce (read: a patent black shiny high-waisted pencil skirt and some kick-butt heels) but jeans and Converse fit a bit more with my everyday needs… for now at least.
