Day 1107 - Shoesday Tuesday

I wasn't going to blog today after what happened in Manchester, it just didn't feel right to be discussing shoes after something so terrible. I watched it unfold last night and this morning I just woke up feeling so sad. Everyone seems to have an opinion (I'm sure we've all witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly on social media and TV today) but the truth is, there's no comforting words at this time. For those involved or hurt or the families of the dead and injured, that'll be the worst day of their lives and theories on how to "not let them win" just won't matter at this time. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I feel a bit guilty actually that I have the luxury of being able to choose to carry on.  Although it's never left my mind all day, I can try and write this blog post and get on with my day.  I can choose not to listen or read any more about it when it becomes too much. There's no escape for those families though and I just feel terribly sorry about that. The only thing I think the rest of us can take away from situations like this is, there always seems to be more people willing to help than harm and we have to have faith in that, no matter our beliefs or thoughts on these situations and that's all I'll say x 
So it's been a little while since I've managed a post here. Last week I did a strange thing and almost completed a post, then chickened out of posting it because I wasn't happy with the photos. It's really not like me to do that, I've always shown you every outfit regardless of it being good or bad, but that's what happened. Anyway, I love this outfit, but it has a story (quite a long one, I'll warn you). So my youngest cousin was getting married last month. We'd known for a while and the cousins were invited at night and because it was held locally, I was able to go. It was still a big outing and effort considering all that's been going on, but I was looking forward to getting dressed up for once. It turned out none of my other cousins could make it (other than the sisters of the groom) as they all either live far away and/or have kids, so it was just my sisters, my brother in law and our Aunties and Uncles. I had a beautiful dress that I planned to wear from pretty much the moment he got engaged! Then I lost lots of weight over the past year and a bit and when it came to trying it on, it was massive. I could literally fit another person inside, it was huge everywhere and drowned me (and not salvageable at all). So, I was kind of torn with what to do.

Day 1106 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! Been a few weeks since I've been able to post, but here's an outfit I wore last week for a hospital appointment. It was my "big" appointment at Ninewells, which I'll go into more detail on Pink Haired Princess when I have the chance, but it meant an early start to get to Dundee on time. Not a fan of the early start! Getting dressed these days is like a major mission, finding what still fits and is weather appropriate.

Day 1105 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! I'm sorry I've not been very steady with blogging over the past 2 months. I seem to have bursts of trying to get on and do things and then I'm either too tired and sore to do anything else or completely unmotivated. Last Tuesday I totally did plan to publish a Shoesday post, but my gallstones had other ideas! It takes so much out of me after an attack, that I need days to recover. Anyway, this week, I had to show you the brand new shoes and scrap whatever I chose for last week. It does mean pyjamas, but you're accustomed to that by now I think (and they're cute so who cares?).

Day 1103 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! A brand new pair of shoes for you, that just came into my possession a couple of weeks ago. That's not to say I've just noticed them, they've been firmly on my wishlist since the moment I saw them on the AW16 runway. I spent all last season telling myself it would never be (way outta my price range). Then I saw them on sale, they sold out of my size a couple of times, then by sheer luck, they got one pair back in, a size up. I wasn't sure whether or not to risk it or perhaps I'd even need the size up and that was a sign from the shoe gods!
