Day 1145 - Shoesday Tuesday

I'm back with a brand new pair of boots for you this week.  Irregular Choice surprised us this season with lots of new festive themed footwear and something different from the usual Santa character heels.  Now you're going to laugh when I say this, but these ankle boots are a welcome Christmas shoe for me as they are more casual.  I know they are glittery, embellished, blah, blah, blah, but for me this is a casual, relaxed style, especially compared to the Santa heeled shoes that I'd consider as 'dressy'. It's also pretty much as low as I dare go in a heel.  I'm sure there are plenty people welcoming the deluge of low and mid heels right now, but I'm not one.  This season has without a doubt been all about those heels, true high heels have been few and far between and I've really not liked that!  I don't want 6" stiletto heels ALL the time, but I do appreciate a heel higher than the 3 1/2" on these.  That extra inch or even just a half inch would make all the difference to me.  I noted my legs looked chunkier than usual in these photos and I feel that's down to the lower heel, I'm just not a fan of the way mid heels or flats look on me and you know I can't walk very well in them either!  I know technically these are probably still considered a 'high' heel, but definitely the lowest in that category.  Anyhow, I've had to suck it up or else lose out on the gorgeous uppers altogether and sometimes (in this instance), I just didn't want to do that, so went ahead and bought them.

Day 1144 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! Feels nice, if a little strange, to get back into blogging after a week of doing nothing other than sleeping. I've been in so much pain lately and had another 48 hour migraine last week, which I quite honestly would've appreciated someone drilling a hole in my skull to release pressure, it hurt that much. Medication, sleep and rest did nothing to help, there was no escape and obviously blogging and the internet were the last things on my mind. I'm still trying to take it easy, thus this post has taken a little longer to write and I'm still a bit hesitant to get back into Instagram and Facebook. I also did a  bit of rearranging in the shoe room at the weekend, which nearly killed me, whilst sorting out some bits and pieces to sell on eBay (another thing I'm trying to get back into).  It's all been quite physically demanding and I'm pretty limited in that department these days.
