Good Friday Dressing Down

You’re about to see something you won’t see very often.

Me in flats in an outfit post, and not standing on my tip toes! Also looking slightly worried and squinty as the sun was in my eyes.

I don’t really like myself in flats. I have short legs proportionally to my body and I feel like I just look all wrong. Even in a photo taken from slightly below, which allegedly makes my legs look longer, I feel like it looks like a photo taken from above.

No one but me can see this, obviously, but I can. So I thought I’d point it out to you so you can look for it and say “Oh yes! You’re right! You’re all out of proportion and sort of squashed looking.”

♥ Converse c/o JD Sports ♥ Scarf & Belt – Vintage ♥

The reason for the flat shoes today is one of pain and misery, for I have an injured foot. Sob.

It’s something I get now and again as I am overweight, have flat feet, and will insist on throwing myself around and doing all this exercise malarky, but when it flares up I have to make sure I wear proper supportive shoes with a bit of arch support in them. Normally I’m a Keds girl, but having worn mine TO ACTUAL DEATH last summer, to the point that there are bits flapping off them, I decided to take JD Sports up on their offer to send me a pair of Converse. These appear to be called Dainty Ox, which made me chortle, it’s like they’re describing ME!
