Rolling my ankles and pretty new things

Oh, hey, hi there!

Welcome to my pretty new blog! You may have noticed overnight the look changed a bit, and I'm super excited about it. Its the first step in my new direction on this blog. What do you think??!

On to el outfit-o: If you can tell by the slouching, I had a hard time taking my self portrait in these shoes. See, I'm already a pseudo amazon woman at 5'9", and these shoes have a 4 in. heel. That puts me at a healthy 6'1". Also known as towering over everyone in my office. (Thankfully I snagged myself a tall man though, so standing next to him wasn't awkward :)

Anywho, I've seen cute wedges EVERYWHERE this season but I had yet to attempt them myself, despite owning a few pairs. When I saw these babies at a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have them (heads up, they are online exclusives). I carefully put them on and paraded around my apartment for an hour or so to make sure I could walk in them. Ok.. that was pretty easy. Unfortunately, walking up and down the hallway in my apartment is a little different then walking around in real life.
I got out of my car... rolled my ankle. I turned around too quickly in the office... rolled my ankle (thankfully the ankle roll made me keep turning and I body slammed the wall in front of some ladies in the other office.. so that was fun). I stood up too fast from my chair... rolled my ankle. I strolled across the grass after getting the mail... rolled my ankle.

After my usual lunchtime work out, I decided it was safest for me to wear my shower flipflops for the remainder of the afternoon.

I think the lesson here is don't move quickly in your sky high wedges unless you are a professional.
