Well, I’m 6 weeks post-op and I’m starting to feel pretty normal again, which makes me very happy. But it’s this outfit that’s really making me feel like myself. I love this kind of simple outfit. Denim on the bottom, a simple tee on top, and a third item over both.
It’s getting mild enough finally to not need a jacket every time I go out, so this very thin, lightweight longline cardi from Torrid is perfect.
And I have been searching for SO long for a nice white tee and finally got this one from J. Jill. It’s a linen cotton blend so will be very nice in the warmer weather. I *do* need a new nude bra, though (mwerp!).
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Superga sneakers! When you’re heavy, bending over for long enough to tie shoelaces can be SO uncomfortable, not to mention cutting off your oxygen (!!!) that I’ve been wanting a laceless sneaker. I tried some slip-ons and they just didn’t fit right on my high-instep foot. These velcro ones are so easy! Plus, the Superga is a nice solid sneaker with a thicker sole and that helps a little with my painful heel – AND they come up high enough that I can wear my inserts with them. With most of my shoes, the insert raises my foot up so high in the shoe that when I walk, the shoe just slips right off my heel! So these were a real win. AND they were on sale for $24.99!!!
On this day we went to a nearby park that is very fancy with waterfalls and railings and whatnot. It’s a popular wedding photo venue with local photographers.
After shooting these shots on this walkway, we went up the steps back to the main path. Well, My Friend Who Shall Remain Nameless did…I TRIED to go up the steps…but tripped on the top step and did one of those slow motion falls…first to my knees on the concrete…then down to my elbows (never letting the camera touch the ground, win!), then because I was at the top of a little hill and couldn’t get my balance, I rolled down onto my side…and started rolling down the hill…”ow-ing” and laughing hysterically the entire time. Thankfully a small shrub stopped my descent and I did NOT roll into the pond with the geese. But it WOULD have made A Great Shot!
So, yeah, while sometimes I like to be a little “dressier” (ie, not in denim!), other than leggings, this is my favorite kind of outfit. Easy peasy, comfy, with endless combinations.
In other news, it looks I’ll be starting radiation treatments as early as next week, so I’ve been enjoying my little “feeling like myself” break I had between surgery recovery and beginning treatment.
