Back on my feet!

Yippee!!  Here we finally are…my first time “out and about” wearing both shoes (instead of only the left one!) since my accident!!

Would you believe that it’s actually difficult to walk after using crutches for so many weeks?!  Add to that the discomfort and swelling from the blood clot that I’m now dealing with…well, I can tell you that there won’t be any dancing for a while yet!!

But I’m celebrating – just a little! – nonetheless…and letting my Jeffrey Campbell shoes do the “rockin'” for me!!  Of course my footwear is going to be stealing most of the spotlight today, but I wanted to add some colour to my look, too; and for that, my silky tee and patterned cross-body bag (from Billabong) are ideal, don’t you think?!

It’s sooo good to be back on my feet, dear readers!! The hurdles aren’t all behind me yet…but I’m well on my way now!!

    I'm so happy for you! You look amazing in lavender, it really makes your eyes and pretty blonde hair stand out. I can only imagine how happy you are to wear shoes again!

      Oh yes, dear Anett!! It feels sooo amazing to actually be able to wear matching footwear!! Now I just have to learn to walk properly again, ha ha!! XO

      Hello there Grace, and thank you for visiting!! I'm really sorry to hear that you've been unfortunate enough to seriously injure your leg several times; I can only say that I NEVER wish to repeat this experience in my lifetime!! It certainly teaches you not to take your good health for granted, doesn't it?!

      Thank you, dear Dawn…I simply HAD to take BOTH of these fab Jeffrey Campbell shoes out for a "spin" at my very first opportunity!! 😉

    Liebe Monika, ich hoffe es ist o.k., wenn ich heute mal auf Deutsch kommentiere. Ich bin einfach schneller, wenn ich in Deutsch schreibe und ich habe eh gerade ein furchtbar schlechtes Gewissen, weil ich es zurzeit nur so selten schaffe, bei Dir zu kommentieren. Das tut mir leid, weil ich schaue mir jeden post von Dir an – nur rast die Zeit… und schwupps ist schon wieder mitten in der Nacht. 🙁 Ich freu mich soooo sehr, dass Du endlich wieder zwei gesunde Beine hast und diese hübschen Schuhe an beiden Füßen tragen kannst. Die gefallen mir ohnehin so gut und zu diesem Outfit passen sie einfach perfekt. Auch Dein farbiges Seidenoberteil ist ein sehr besonders und passt super zum Rest Deines Looks… <3
    Hab einen schönen Tag, liebe Monika und genieße die Welt auf beiden Beinen und ohne Krücken… Alles Liebe aus Deutschland, Conny xoxo

      I don't mind AT ALL if you comment in German, dearest Conny!! I have been off work again this week and last week, and I STILL can't seem to catch up on all my blog-related projects, so I totally understand what you mean about time being too short!! Please don't feel guilty!! I am always very happy when I hear from you…and thank you with all my heart for your good wishes!! XOXO
