Last week I mentioned that I was fed up with my professional wardrobe situation. I took care of that problem shortly after with a large J.Crew order. While I’m most excited about the dress, it needs to be taken to the tailor when I can finally stand without the help of crutches. The top needs to be taken in and the straps brought up. (Basically, the same alteration I get for every dress that isn’t a loose shift.) This skirt comes in at a close second. I wasn’t sure what to expect since it’s a linen-cotton blend, but it’s pretty substantial. It’s also fully lined and it has pockets. Love. It.
I’ve been wearing a version of this outfit to work every day with my crutches. I just can’t bring myself to tuck pants into the boot! I should be able to start putting some weight on my foot this Thursday and I can expect to rid myself of the crutches and the boot by mid-July. Not only am I excited to walk again, I’m anxious to stand up straight in blog photos and use something other than a crossbody purse! It’s the little things.
