Day 1013 - Shoesday Tuesday
Shoes: Red Blythe 'Dice' Irregular Choice
Another outfit post for you this week, after a visit to the dentist. I'm actually glad I have nothing pencilled in for me on the family calendar this week, because I'm exhausted after doctor, dentist and physio appointments over the past fortnight. Further proof, I'm still struggling with my health (as if I need reminding).
I just can't seem to maintain an 'active' pace and by active, I mean 'my' active, nothing like an ordinary person! I'm spending more time in bed, but pushing myself to do the physio exercises. You get to the point that you wonder what's more important (doing exercises or trying to have a bit of a life and get up before lunch)! Anyway, this was my outfit; comfort over style as is the norm these days. I just realised last time I wore these boots (beginning of January last year, right before I felt really ill), I wore them with these socks, oops! I'm feeling OOTD posts perhaps aren't good for my self esteem just now, I feel really sad looking back at those photos. It's difficult to express how much I miss wearing makeup, having coloured, fancy hair, getting properly dressed and feeling pretty. It's really difficult to feel good about yourself, when you look and feel 'bleugh'! I can't help but compare the two posts and I just feel so frumpy these days, all the time. I mean for the most part, I'm not letting it get to me, it's just when I'm reminded of how things used to be and how I used to look. The one good part is being able to get ready in 5 minutes and when it's raining or snowing, not worrying that it's blowing in my face and 'ruining' my hair and makeup (which it did this day)! Anyway, this dress was so crushed, it looked pleated, when I wrestled it out of the wardrobe (I swear one of these days my wardrobe will eat me). As I was wearing my coat and nobody would see it, I chucked it on anyway. Without it's usual belt, because again, does it really matter? Leggings and socks for warmth and yes, the cutest little booties. These are actually really quite worn on the soles, which I find strangely satisfying. I've got a few new shoes that arrived recently, which I'm excited to reveal on Shoesday Tuesday in the future! Everytime I think I'm running out, a new pair appear to keep us going another week. What do you think of these boots today, an old favourite?
Wearing: Dog print tea-dress H by Henry Holland, black leggings Primark and frilly socks Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop.
Fit: True to size, just over 4 1/4" heel and small concealed platform, lace up.
Comfort: No issues with these.
