The weather was so lovely this weekend! I had walked out with a jacket thinking I would hide my beautiful dress in it all day but the moment we landed out of the car into the city, I felt like the coat needed to go. I am not going to take credit for buying this dress of my own accord. I bought the sibling of this dress in red lace and had completely ignored this one. My husband later found it and really wanted me to try it on. I think its something about the fabric. The soft silkiness of it. When I touched the material I was almost like I am in heaveeeenn. The moment I put the dress on the fitting room. I had to admit, I guess my husband knows how to dress a woman sometimes better than I do haha. Btw they brought a new print out in this dress for a really LOW price compared to the one I am wearing, same material and everything. Only thing is it doesnt work on my skin tone. I am sharing the link to that dress at the bottom of the page with info of my dress. Feel free to check that one out as well.
Oh and what is it that you see on my feet? A PAIR OF RIDING BOOTS!! Those of you that have stuck around with me from the early days of my blog know that I was living in medicated shoes, then progressed to dansko and last year started wearing flats with custom orthotics in them. I had been looking for a pair for boots for a whole year that would fit my orthotics and keep my feet from plunging back into pain. The want became a necessity with my work commute on public transport 3 hours each day. My flats were getting soaked with water and my orthotics were begging to fall apart. My mom pushed me to go Macys and look at their boots selection. She wanted to buy me a pair for my birthday. She knew if she wont force me, I’d keep stalling on this process. After several boots got stuck on my feet and wanting to give up hope…I found this perfect pair. Although my bday isn’t here yet..my mom wanted me to take these home with me as it has been chilly and rainy pretty often lately. The very next day it poured cats and dogs. As I got off the train and walked my 10 minute walk to my car. I called my mom like a 10 year old me would…all giddy and hyper, I wanted to thank her for these boots. She laughed but I kept trying to tell her how much this pair of boot means to me! It not only helps me stay warm and dry but it shows me progress. Progress from the person who I was 4 years ago sitting on the couch depressed and in pain, barely able to walk. I don’t know if I will ever be able to wear heels again like I used to but you know what? for right now…I am very content.
