As you can tell from the lack of blog posts, my camera man (spouse) has been out of town. So no outfit photo’s today. I’m rather glad and I’ll tell you why in a moment.
I took the day off last Friday to see a hand specialist. My hands started hurting after my 3rd aerial silk class and I thought I just over-did-it. However, I knew the burning in my hands and the fact that my hands were ‘falling asleep’ at night wasn’t quite right. Anyway, turns out that I have carpel tunnel syndrome. Hopefully, this ordeal won’t require surgery.
Anyway, after that disappointing diagnosis, I needed some retail therapy and bought this cute linen dress decorated with a necklace from Zara.
I purchased this dress as you see it in the above picture .. all wrinkled. The material of the dress is a denim linen so I thought that this is how you are suppose to wear this dress and so I didn’t bother to iron it. Except when I looked up the dress online .. it’s perfectly pressed, so I’m glad I didn’t take photo’s today as I would have worn the dress .. as is. A wrinkled mess is not quite the look I’m going for.
I really love that this dress has this ‘built in’ necklace. It’s a really cute detail and makes this dress a “throw it on and go” garment. Only problem is that I can’t detach the necklace from the dress so I’m not too sure how long the necklace will last after a few rounds of laundering.
As for shoes, this type of casual dress can handle anything from flip flops or the Target leather sandals that I mentioned in a recent post. I decided to get a pair of Jack Purcell, Converse sneakers to go with the dress. I’m not familiar with Jack Purcell, but apparently he was a Canadian world champion badminton player in 1933 and he designed the sneakers in the photo below. Cool eh?
As for my hands, I need to go for an electrodiagnostic test to determine the extent of the nerve damage. I asked the doctor if the test is painful, similar to getting snapped by a rubber band and she said “something like that”. Hmm, I can’t imagine what I’m in for
