This top is a bit of a wild card for me. Bright orange is not a colour I have a lot of in my wardrobe. It does fulfil a number of my clothing choice criteria, though. It is cropped and loose, which is one of my favourite styles this season. It is made of a thick fabric that has structural integrity and does not cling to my body. It looks good with my other, mostly neutral clothes. And it can be worn back-to-front, thus providing length variation that increases the versatility of what I can pair it with. The skirt I am wearing here is from the two-piece dress outfit I wore at Christmas, and the shirt is the self-patterned floral one that I showed you a few week ago.
I wore this out to dinner with my girlfriends and felt great. I am looking forward to wearing the crop top in winter, when it is bleak and dark and a splash of colour is just what is needed to lift the spirits. And I am enjoying getting to a point where choosing clothes and putting together outfits has become relatively easy.
I also wanted to share with you a glimpse of our anniversary gift to each other: photographs taken by the very talented Juanita of Broderick Photography. We are delighted to have such beautiful images to mark a special milestone. Whatever happens in the future, it is lovely to record this time when we are happy, healthy and having fun.
