Black and Coral, but It's All About the Quads

I had two things I had to factor in when planning today's outfit: I had to go to the dentist and my quad muscle is still sore.

For the dentist, pants. Nothing like being tipped upside down in a skirt. As it turns out, my clothing was the last thing on my mind as I sat through an hour of scaling (go to the dentist more frequently than me, kids) on only one quadrant of my mouth. See, quadrant, get it?
And my sore quad muscle on my right leg meant I dug out the "sensible" shoes. Of course, sensible for me is different than sensible for most people. For me, it means NOT a four-inch heel. Just a three-inch. Not so bad. And I did wear my Vans for walking anywhere further than desk to copy room.

Haven't worn these shoes for a while. I've been procrastinating (me?? no!) cleaning out the closet and hauling out my summer shoes, and have just been digging them out willy-nilly. I got these in NYC with Mom 2 years ago. *smile*

Anyway, I have two more dentist appointments next week. Excuse me while I go self-medicate with some wine.

Almost Friday!

Wrap t-shirt (InWear), grey cami (RW & Co.), striped pants (Calvin Klein, consignment), bracelet (silent auction), earrings (The Cobbler), shoes (Unisa).


  1. Ooo, I love that shirt the color is really nice. I'm sorry to hear of the bummer of a dentist appointment... May I ask how long it has been since you've been to the dentist? (I'm only asking because I'm scared, I haven't been to the dentist in 2 years. I don't have dental coverage anymore)

  2. LOL 3 inch heels are kitten heels for you :D I'm going flats today, so I can take a break. Happy to see you're up and running again.

  3. Love the shirt color. I have to go to the dentist every three months and they scale. I have awful problems with my teeth. I hope you enjoy the wine. I usually at least one glass after a dental visit!

  4. Thanks, Alison. I'm ashamed to admit's been 10 years. I had some major teeth-related trauma when I was 17 (I knocked out my front teeth) and had a LOT of bad dentist experiences for the next year. I am biting the bullet and getting things taken care of...but I'm whining about it, haha.

    Thanks for the sympathy, Wendy!

    Sher, I knew you'd appreciate that. I'll be in flats (real flats) tomorrow.

  5. Oh Sheila, I totally understand. I once had a sadistic dentist that filled cavities in the backs of my front teeth without Novocaine when I was 12. I was screaming and my best friend was in the waiting room, she was terrified when she got her first cavity. I refused to go to the dentist until after we moved and my parents had a talk with our new dentist. I then went in and told the dentist about my story again and he worked with me to have a virtually pain free appointment to fill the 5 cavities I had 3 years after my traumatic experience. I'm hoping I can get to the dentist soon. I don't want to have cavities filled, but I have a cracked tooth my old dentist was watching so, I'm scared!

  6. Love the shirt and the shoes! Absolutely fabulous outfit. So glad you're back. I linked up to your weight loss post recently and a few of my friends were inspired to tears!

  7. Ugh, the dentist sounds horrendous! Glad you survived ... this first round, anyway.

  8. Thanks, Anon.

    Alison, that sounds horrid, absolutely horrid. Dentistry (and compassionate dentists) has improved in the last few years, that's for sure. If I can do it, you can too!

    Thanks, Christy! Aw...thank you so much - I am humbled to have moved them.

    Sal, it was, it was. Next week should be even..."better".

  9. I love that bracelet. it's so fun!
