As Cropped As You Like

black cropped top white pants summer outfit

2 years ago it was hard to imagine I’d be jumping from one rock to another in Balmoral in a cropped top like this Bec & Bridge number. Back than I had an enormous baby bump and and it felt like it was going to stay like that forever. Well, now the baby is jumping around even more than her mum does. Seriously, this kid is full of energy.

So when our friend Tim called “Let’s go for a quick photo shoot in Balmoral” we happily agreed. Anastasia was running around in circles on the beach with Joseph while I was pretending to be Linda Evengelista striking poses on the rocks. I’m really loving the contrast of  long, wide leg white pants and the tiny, black cropped top. Even the fabrics are contrasting, feminine silk vs rough cotton. This black and white combination could also be added to this ensemble.
