Well heeled

This is the highest heel that I’ve managed so far since my accident…and I felt on top of the world!!

But – in all honesty – I was just a little bit hesitant, too; it’s kind of scary getting back on that horse once you’ve fallen off!!  Endurance is an issue as well…I used to be able to walk a whole day in shoes even higher than this; right now, though, I can only comfortably manage an hour or two (and even less in these little suede booties, because of the pressure they put on my swollen ankle.)  🙁

Does the pattern of this black and white sweatshirt seem familiar to you??  I wore the matching skirt in my “Flower power” post about a month ago; today it was the top’s turn to debut!!  I’m sure I’ll eventually get around to wearing both pieces together…but for now I wanted to take my faux-leather shorts “out and about” one more time before the weather gets too warm for them (these babies do not breath!!)

I was happy with how this last-minute outfit came together (“last-minute” because we suddenly remembered we had a few errands to take care of!) and even happier that I had some “walking in heels” practice…but running will still have to wait a while.

It’s all about baby steps, right?!

      Thank you, thank you, dearest Veronika!! I do feel like I'm – slowly! – making progress in the heels department…but "slowly" is still the operative word right now!! 😉

    Baby steps for sure, but at least we're both moving in the right direction! So cute! Love the pop of fuchsia too. And what great legs you have! I'm jelly!
