Today’s post is the last of the shots featuring me sporting the
robot foot surgical boot…
…I haven’t been wearing the boot for almost two weeks now, so I figured I had better use these before they became totally irrelevant. As I mentioned in this post, the only thing I can currently wear on my feet are my Birkenstocks with the adjustable straps. I will admit though, after discovering that my foot will occasionally fit into other shoes, I have been mixing up the footwear a bit, but only for photos. It’s still way too painful to wear most shoes.
According to the surgeon, whom I saw yesterday, I still have at least another month before I can even attempt anything remotely strenuous, like exercise of any kind or lawn mowing. As irritating as it may be, she’s probably right. If I spend too much time roaming around on the foot, I pay for it when evening rolls around as it swells and gets bruise-y looking. I know, I know…patience is a virtue. But how much fun is being virtuous?
I’m a sucker for anything blush, so this pretty floral boho sundress is definitely a favorite of mine. It’s one of those light pieces that is perfect for hot weather, but I also layered it under a chunky cardigan and over skinny jeans back when there was still a nip in the air. Since I was still in the boot when I wore this, heel height was a consideration to keep me somewhat level. The heel on my fringe ankle boots was almost perfect and nothing works better with a boho style dress than a pair of ankle boots, especially when they have fringe.
Anyone who is even semi-regular reader knows that I’m a huge fan of skirt extenders like this chiffon extender, the same extender in ivory, and here’s an entire post dedicated to my whole collection. What I’m wearing under this floral boho sundress is actually another sundress with lace and tulle trim. If you’re looking to add some visual interest, or some length, to a dress or tunic you don’t only have to rely only on extenders. Another slightly longer dress with a pretty hemline will do the trick as well. The key to it working and not being uncomfortable to wear is that the underneath dress should be either sleeveless or spaghetti strap. Also, keep in mind the weight of the material. Lightweight cotton, knit or some sort of blend is ideal.
