Put Your Best Foot Forward!

19 Jan

I haven’t been feeling very fashionable lately.  You might remember that I twisted my ankle in November when I was descending a staircase during a rainstorm.  The stairs were wet, and one thing led to another.  Anyway, the swelling on my ankle went down after a few days, for the most part, and I thought it was on its way to healing.  Nope!  About a month later I was still having some pretty sharp pains whenever I tried to put on high heels and so I went to a general practitioner in Rennes who told me to get some X-Rays, which I did and apparently I didn’t break anything.  Unfortunately, since this appointment, I have been stuck wearing “une attelle” (a brace) and the most hideous New Balance running shoes to give it extra support.  Don’t get me wrong, my NBs are absolutely excellent for running, which is why I brought them to France, not for daily wear.  To make matters worse, they squeak with every step I take.  Anyway. I think thats the whole point of this blog post. To share my misery. No matter how cute my outfit is, the shoes and brace make it look like I’m a 45 year old soccer mom.  I guess I should just be happy that I don’t have to wear khakis, too.  Anyway.  I’m hoping i’ll be healed soon, so I can bring out the heels ;)

wish me luck! xxo

    Awwww haha I know how you feel. Heels are still hard for me after breaking mon pied, twice. But oh how I would have killed for a brace or pain killers or anything in China! I’m giggling at the thought of your fashion loving self hobbling around in a brace and sneaker :-P Heal well
