They Call Me Mellow Yellow

Yellow.  It’s a great color and one of my favorites.  It is also perfect for summer, and even better for a confidence boost.  Since I am still trying to shed some baby weight, I purchased a few items that I am very excited about it.  Nowadays, yellow can be found quite frequently in my closet, and today’s outfit is no exception.

Tara Jarmon is a brand I return to often.  The clothing is unique yet classic, often colorful, and well made.  It also fits me well, both pre- and post-baby.  Luckily there is a store in downtown Zurich, and it is there that I found the most perfect yellow skirt.

This skirt is incredible for so many reasons.  It is lightweight and bright, is comfortable and moves beautifully. Plus it washes like a dream!  I am still in awe that I can wash it at home rather than have it dry cleaned.  Being self-conscious about my post-baby figure, it also cinches in my waist right where I need it.  So rather than feeling like I’m being stuffed into a sausage casing, my curves are highlighted in an attractive and classy way.

Taking it a step further, I love to mix my colors.  I always found that orange and yellow mesh well together, and my orange purse was the perfect complement to this outfit.

A Springtime Outfit

My brother and his girlfriend recently arrived to visit Matilda, and we spent Sunday in downtown Zurich.  In honor of the gorgeous, sunny, spring day, I opted for a springtime outfit.  I paired my floral embroidered boots with my new Tara Jarmon coat.

We started our journey at Zeughauskeller for a traditional Swiss lunch and then introduced my brother to Sprungli.  Sprungli has the most amazing hot chocolate/coffee/caramel drink called a Sprungli Caramelito.  Yum!  The entire city seemed to be outside given the weather, and we enjoyed people watching while sipping our delicious beverages.

We then wandered over to the carnival that popped up at Burkliplatz.  It was a super fun and colorful background, perfect for some outfit photos!

After Christmas Stroll Through Zurich

The weather in Zurich over the holidays was lovely.  It was mild, sunny, and perfect for spending time outdoors.  This allowed Tony and I to properly introduce Zurich to his sister and her family.

The day after Christmas, the sun shone bright and we headed down to Old Town.  This is one of the cutest parts of Zurich.  It is full of ups and downs when strolling amongst the cobblestones and you can easily walk back and forth across the river.  Both Fraumunster and Grossmunster are in full view, and you can take in all of the adorably Swiss buildings.

One of the bridges, Rathausbruke, presents a perfect shot of Grossmunster in the background.  Tony’s sister took some bump photos of us.  They showcase both the beginning of our little family and the wonderful city we live.  Plus, Tony’s face is priceless.

Additionally, while the weather in Zurich has been mild compared to my home town, Chicago, it is still chilly.  It’s hard to dress this very pregnant body of mine, but I have been found some creative work arounds.  I often wear shorter mini-dresses as tops over jeans.  This allows me to cover my bump and my butt, and repurposes clothes I already own.

Veronica (Tony’s sister) and her 3 children got some great photos as well.  It was so nice to showcase Zurich.

After the photos, we continued our stroll through Old Town.  Most places were closed for the holidays, but there were a few restaurants open, and we grabbed some Italian appetizers and gluhwine.  We continued up to Central and made our way home via a train from the main station.

Christmas time in Zurich is such a treat, and ours this year was made even better by the presence of our wonderful family.  Merry Christmas!
