From frying pan…to fire

The good news, dear readers, is that this week is the last week that my outfit posts will include a certain ugly medical device!!

Unfortunately, as I was being informed that the four broken bones in my foot had healed (yippee!) I was also being informed that I had developed a rather serious blood clot in that same leg (apparently a possible “side effect” of wearing a cast.)

I made up my mind when I first started my blog that I wanted to focus on my “looks of the day” – they have always been my favourite type of blog to read! – so I’m sort of hesitant to write much about my newest health concern.  On the other hand, this kind of thing has an annoying way of encroaching on fashion choices…my leg is terribly swollen right now, so unless the medication that I’m taking kicks in fast, my styling choices will once again be sadly limited!!

Truly an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” situation, isn’t it??  I’m desperately hoping that my leg will be reasonably normal for next week’s outfit posts; but if it isn’t, I’ll just have to dazzle you once again with new, creative ways to camouflage the situation!!  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this dress-over-jeans look, featuring my laser-cut leather shift that you saw last waaay back in my “Retro lady” post!!

      You have no idea just how glad I am that the cast is a goner, dear Anett!! I'm super excited about FINALLY being able to do looks without that contraption on my foot…so now it's all about keeping my fingers crossed that the medication I'm taking for the blood clot does the trick!!

      Thank you sooo much, dear Veronika!! I was really disappointed that I couldn't participate in your giveaway (signing up for Pinterest is still on my list of things to do!) so your little gesture means more than I can say!! XOXO
