Did you ever have one of those days…
…you know what I mean, one of those days where you’re just…cranky? Out of sorts. Irritable. Well, today is one of those days for me. Fortunately my unruly hormones seem to have settled into a menopause induced stupor, but I do still have days where I’m a tad touchy. In light of that fact, I’m just not feeling a story today so how about we just allow the outfit to do the talking?
How perfect is blush pink ruffled top for Spring? When I first saw it I knew that it would be perfect paired with denim or in this case, chambray. I can see it being the perfect partner with my shredded boyfriend shorts that are pretty much a standard on FFD once summer hits. My only complaint is the tie on the lace up part…it’s weirdly stretchy and curls up like whip licorice. But that is an easy enough fix even for one with my lack of domestic skills; I’m going to pick up a bit of blush satin ribbon the next time I’m out and about. I’m thinking that will make the top even more fabulous.
Now, back to the chambray pants. These babies are soft with a capital “S”. The best part? The drawstring is real and fully functioning. There’s nothing more disappointing (okay, an overstatement perhaps) then finding a fab pair of slouchy drawstring pants only to find out there is a weirdly tight elastic band and a purely ornamental drawstring. These are so stellar that I picked up a darker chambray pair as well; JCP was having one of their buy one get one for a penny sales so that was of course, a no-brainer.
Yes, Monday I told you that on May 16th I will be having my long delayed bunion surgery. Yes, I am wearing heels today. And yes, I am in pain. Here’s the thing though, I am in pain in heels, sneakers, Birks, barefeet, it doesn’t make a difference…so I am wearing my damn heels every chance I get between now and May 16th. Over the last several years I’ve modified the type of heels I wear though and these are an example. I have found that not only is a chunky block heel or a solid wedge more comfortable for my foot, they are also so much easier to walk in. I also keep the heel height ideally no more than about 2 1/2 inches.
Bum foot aside, these are extremely comfortable and easy to stomp around in. Perhaps you won’t believe this (quite honestly I was puzzled when I realized it), but I have no red sandals and no dressier black sandals. Since these were so comfy I ordered both a red and black pair as well.
Get yourself a comfortable pair of nude strappy sandals with at least a bit of a heel. I have found that I can go a bit higher with the heel if it is a solid chunky heel and/or if there is a bit of a platform in the front. A good nude sandal goes with basically everything in your closet, and assuming the shade is close to your skin tone they help to elongate the leg line.
