Crop Tops and Flip Flops

July 9, 2015

Crop tops and flip flops – I read this phrase in a blog somewhere, and it has stayed with me.

The phrase makes me think of summer days, warm water tides, salty breezes, bright sunlight reflecting off ocean waves, and sizzling sidewalks that blister the feet were it not for the flip flops

And of young ladies with slim tanned tummies peeping out from beneath crop tops, with big straw hats and large sun shades, and white teeth showing in the easy smiles on their tanned faces

And golden sun in the early morning, streaming through the window, welcome sun, how quickly we shut it out as we draw the drapes to keep out the heat

It is summer here in my part of our small world, beach weather, and a time for crop tops and flip flops.
