sensibility

May 9th, 2011

Oh hi, so apparently I’m addicted to blogging and having a broken toe won’t stop me from outfit posting. hehe

Though to be honest, this time round its getting better a lot quicker – either that, or by the third time you just become a pro at dealing with it. Probably the latter. Whatever the case, I’m finding that for short periods of time I can actually wear not Birkenstock shoes without it hurting. awesomeness.

Enter these sandals. When I was shopping with my friend E a few weeks ago I was explaining to her how I’m trying to be a good girl, and buy a few more “sensible” pairs of shoes – cos, you now I like my heels. So instead of picking up these totally amazing and unwalkable shoes (no kidding, i actually tripped whilst trying them on) – i bought these sensible, but still super cute sandals.

It turned out to be quite fortuitous, as they are now one of the only pairs of shoes which I can wear comfortable with my broken toe. I’m so happy to have an option other than birks!! Though, I think I might avoid wearing a midi skit with flats again – i feel a little shorty in these shots!

    So sorry to hear about the broken toe–ouch! Hope you mend quickly. :)

    I really love this outfit! I’m a bit wary of flat shoes with midi skirts too; I have such muscular legs I always feel like I look like a Hobbit in flats. haha. You look so pretty though–definitely not a shorty! :D I’m just loving that top especially with the skirt. Beautiful!
