Cropped

Crop top

Well, I’ll be honest.  I never thought I’d see the day when I wore a crop top in public (or anywhere else for that matter).  I’ve mentioned that they just weren’t my thing, and then, after having kids, I figured that ship had sailed.

But then they came back with a vengeance, and the more I saw them, the more sense they made to me.  And the more I wanted in on this particular trend (though I’m not afraid to let a trend pass me by, if I’m just not feeling it).  Quietly, I’ve tried them on in my own closet (it’s safe in there– favorable lighting, no bystanders. . .).  But, then a few weeks ago, I wore one out.

I felt pretty giddy, actually.  It’s nice to be surprised by your own self, after so many years.  And, until I noticed the stark discrepancy in the level of my tan between my shoulders and my stomach, I still felt pretty good about it.

Actually, I’m still pretty psyched about the whole thing.  Sure, I could use a tan (and maybe some more crunches), but I’m out there (as is my belly button).  It’s a whole new world.
