I am sorry I left you hanging! The last month has been a blur. I came down to Florida right before Thanksgiving to recover from surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated ankle and have been here ever since. It made more sense for me to stay here with my parents through the holidays as they have a one-floor house and we were already booked to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with them. I brought down my work computer and set up an office in my bedroom.
I tried to keep up with the pace of posting and working full time, but I ran out of gas right around Christmas and needed to take some time off from blogging.
Now that I am feeling more like myself and able to move around more freely, I am in need of a few things to spruce up my limited wardrobe and beauty routine.
First on my list… I am in the Market for New Sneakers!
This is a big one. I traveled down here in my APL sneakers – wearing one on my good leg and packed the other. I love my APL sneakers and bought them because they have a breathable mesh fabric, are low to the ground, really comfortable and great for walking or running around. They are going to be a great sneaker when I am out of my boot.
Once I moved from my splint to a big black boot, I needed a sneaker with a higher heel to level me up to the height of the boot. Luckily, I had an old pair of Asics running sneakers (similar to these) at my parent’s house. They are neon green and gold and while they work for every day, I have been wearing them out at night too…. not the best fashion choice with evening attire but I get a pass since I have the injury 🙂
I do not think I will be wearing anything but sneakers in my near future and would LOVE a pair of neutral-colored sneakers to wear when I dress up.
Good thing it’s “IN” to wear sneakers with dresses!
I have worn my Adidas to death but the leather is really hot in the Summer and for Florida, they could be too. I have a pair of Superga’s and slip on converse but neither of them has the support I think I will need.
I have been looking around and there are a lot of new sneaker brands.. almost too many!
The Vejas look about right but again.. are they hot? and the Golden Goose are chic but a splurge for something that I don’t think has the support I need. What about Greats Royale Perforated? They keep hitting me up on Instagram and I have no idea if they will work or not. How about Tretorns? They have made a comeback and come in canvas. So many choices…
What do you suggest?? I would love your thoughts! Think supportive, comfortable, breathable and chic. That’s a tall request!
