I wish I could say I wore this look all day, but I was only able to enjoy it for a little while. I'm still suffering from tendinitis in my feet and can't wear "fashionable" shoes for very long. I am resigned to wearing tennis shoes and Naots; shoes with lots of padding and little style. Tendinitis takes so long to heal!
My ex-podiatrist (he did not have enough time for me so I've stopped going to him), said to find flat, stiff-soled shoes. Turns out that is nearly impossible to do! 99% of shoes have a slight heel and/or are completely flexible in the forefoot.
Enough about my dumb feet and on to a happier topic! My husband and I are leaving on our "honeymoon" on Wednesday. We will be spending 5 days in northern California. Specifically, San Francisco and Santa Cruz. His mother has cousins there, so we will staying with them. Other than that, we don't really have any plans. Our most recent trips (Baltimore and Houston) have been exhausting, because they both involved weddings. We spent our days "off" running around like mad. This time we are just going to relax and go with the flow. The weather looks like it's going to be perfect and since we will be there in the off season, the crowds will be smaller. I'm excited :)
I'm hoping to do some blogging, or at least take outfit pictures while I'm there, but it's always so hard when you have a limited wardrobe!
So about this look. Today I discovered that I can zip the wool liner out of Trevor's Burberry trench coat. Happy discovery since that coat is too big and kinda looks ridiculous on me. The liner fits well under my cheap-o Forever21 coat. I'm loving the mix of patterns too. The skirt is from Value Village and features messy polka-dots, as you can see.
