Day 1110 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hi gang, I'm back! I took a few weeks off to recover from my gallbladder operation, but am feeling great (well the wounds have other ideas, but I, myself, am fine). I wanted to post this OOTD from a few months ago, the one I mentioned in a previous post, that I struggled to blog about. I don't know why I avoided posting it. Despite the current wardrobe struggles, I loved the outfit and felt nice in it at the time, so maybe I thought the photos didn't quite reflect that, I don't know. I am struggling a bit to decide what to wear, while nothing fits me and I don't really want to buy anything new until my weight sticks. So I probably have roughly 30% of my wardrobe left and even then, a lot of it is ill-fitting. This outfit was for my Mum's 60th birthday in March. I felt really guilty because while the gallstone issue was ongoing we were avoiding going out for a big family meal and I suggested everyone went without me, but then they would've felt guilty leaving me at home and I couldn't exactly sit there and eat nothing. It was also my parents Ruby wedding anniversary a few days later and we were having family round for a little daytime party, plus my wee cousin was getting married the next week (same family), so it would've been a bit much to organise another party and with my M.E. as well, I had too much going on as it was. Instead we went out for a wee treat one afternoon on my sister's day off.

Day 1109 - Shoesday Tuesday

Following on from my extra Shoesday post last Friday, I have the second and final pair of shoes I got from the Irregular Choice Disney Mickey & Friends collection. I was quite reserved in my footwear purchases, especially given the size of this range, but that was mostly because I was after 3 handbags (and a purse) too, so had to choose wisely. Sherbet Ice Cream were floral and brightly coloured character heels, so I went in the opposite direction for my second choice, perhaps more 'traditional' when thinking of Mickey colours and with one of my favourite heels.

Day 1108 - Shoesday Tuesday (Extra)

"What's this?" I hear you ask, Shoesday Tuesday on a Friday? Well seeing as this collection has just gone live and I know how tricky it can be when you don't know which size to buy online, I thought you'd want the fit information on these as soon as possible.

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.
