What I Wore Lately Vol. 128

Hi friends! Happy Hump Day! It’s time for another edition of What I Wore Lately.

These are my real life outfits as of late, so they aren’t especially creative, and of course, they all feature The Boot. But, the show must go on! As usual, I did my best to link up similar styles and more budget-friendly options when it makes sense.


Two Weeks of Everyday Outfits

SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small or medium in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans and pants, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.

These first few photos actually date back to before we went to Florida for Spring Break! This was the day I went to see my podiatrist to get the results of my MRI. It seems so long ago, and yet… I’m still in The Boot!

This might have been the first time I wore real clothes (other than activewear) after my injury. Some of our friends came over and brought dinner, so I decided to see if The Boot fit under these wide leg jeans.

This next outfit is from Easter Sunday. I didn’t have a lot of footwear options because I didn’t want to wear sneakers, but I needed a shoe that would offset the height of The Boot. Plus, it was still chilly here in Pennsylvania, so I wanted to wear a closed toe.

The heel on these slingbacks actually worked out, and these ecru kick flares fit over The Boot, so I recreated this outfit from my trip to Sarasota in February. I topped it off with a denim shirt jacket for extra warmth and added interest. I love how these earrings coordinate with the colors in the outfit.

I’ve worn this Spanx AirEssentials set several times over the past few weeks. It’s super comfy while looking somewhat put together, and the pants fit easily over The Boot.

And this is another “outfit” — if you can call it that — I wore quite a bit in those early days with The Boot, simply because it’s so comfy.

I think this was one of my first trips to physical therapy. I usually wear some variation on this look.

And this was what I wore to one of our many Indoor Drumline events over the past few weeks. These Sketchers espadrilles aren’t as sporty as sneakers, but they’re the perfect height to offset The Boot.

Also, my MOTHER Weekenders are on sale at Bloomingdale’s! These jeans are so versatile; they’re one of the only pairs in my closet that I can wear with both sneakers and heels.

I wore this to church a couple weeks ago. It’s rather plain without a topper, but I love it with the swing trench from LOFT, which unfortunately sold out almost as soon as I got mine. It has just been restocked in a few sizes, plus I linked a similar option below.

This was a casual day at home after a photo shoot with Alison here at the house. It’s been warming up here, so I’ve taken to wearing shorts whenever I can because they don’t interfere with The Boot.

I wore this next outfit to PT one day last week because all of my activewear was in the wash, and it worked out just fine. I also had a manicure appointment that afternoon, and my sweet husband drove me since the girls were both busy. (Last time, I bribed one of them with a pedicure.) I’m pretty sure Paul is more eager for me to start driving again than I am!

And then I wore this to church last Sunday, and out to lunch afterwards. I prefer this outfit with a more open sandal, but this espadrille has a platform that’s the perfect height with The Boot, and the top does have some black stripes, so it worked okay.

I changed into this casual look for the afternoon after church.

I wore these new white shorts with a black smocked tank on Monday after I got back from PT. I actually wore sneakers with the lace-up brace for most of the day, but I took this picture with these slides before putting the brace and sneakers back on. I’m really tired of looking at that boot!

These slides are super comfortable with a supportive molded footbed, and I’ve been shuffling around in them occasionally when I don’t feel like putting on the boot or the lace-up brace. I know it’s too soon to go without support, but occasionally I need to hop up to let the dog out or something, and these feel more substantial than hobbling around in my bare feet.

And then I threw this outfit on again yesterday. It was at the front of my closet, so easy to grab and go.

This is how the lace-up brace in the sneaker looks. It’s marginally better than The Boot, but it doesn’t give me as much flexibility with footwear options. Oh, well. This too shall pass! The most important thing is to protect my fragile ankle from any further injury while I regain my strength and mobility.
