MONDAY IN THE PARK WITH MEGS

This is my sister’s experimental yoga pose….Wait a second. Yeah right. I’m pretty sure Megan has never done yoga in her life. But she has no problem making fun of the group that was doing either yoga or some sort of interpretive dance in the park the other day (see upper left hand corner of the pic). On the Monday these pictures were taken, we headed to Parc de la Ciutadella. This park is like Barcelona’s version of Central Park and it is absolutely stunning. Right in the center there is an amazing fountain, which is where we took most of these pictures! The day we went, there seemed to be a ton going on: people playing with their dogs, some sort of tap/step class taking place in one of the gazebos, and yes…the yoga(?) Megan experienced. All in all, it was a highly entertaining day.

On another note, I would like to point out that my sister is one of the hardest people to go shopping with. She has an incredible body (size 0 jeans), but is a bit heavy in the bust area (we are talking 30FF , ladies!). All of the females on my mother’s side of the family are actually quite busty. I ended up getting a reduction when I was nineteen, but I still remember how hard it was to find things that flattered my body. Being busty, but also quite small in the waist presents Megan with a few different problems when looking for clothes. It is very hard for her to a) find summery clothes that cover her bra straps, b) find tops that don’t show a lot of cleavage and c) find clothes that fit her in the chest area, but accentuate her small waist. She feels that all too often she can get that ‘burlap’ sack look :(.

She found this little maxi number at Nordstrom Rack, and it is one of her favorite pieces. The straps are wide enough to cover her bra and it has a high enough cut to prevent cleavage. she loves the fact that it is cinched in the middle and shows that she actually has a body! What do you guys think?
