Thank you all for your good wishes, sympathy and empathy - I am feeling a whole lot better. My nose and lip are now all scabby, and I don't have black eyes! Hurray for quick healing!
In other exciting news, I did really well in the big 10K race yesterday. Out of a field of over 400 men and women in the Competitive Walk category, I placed 2nd with a time of 1:10 (keep in mind, I WALKED), only 3 seconds behind the first place finisher (a woman who is 10 years younger than me, trains competitively in racewalking and has won medals in the World Masters...not that I'm making excuses!). She and I actually did the last 4K together, and she kicked on a burst of speed - left me in the dust. I was the top finisher in the Masters category (men and women), and I won the gold medal in my age category!
Woo hoo! I am pretty proud of myself. I am pretty creaky today in the hips and legs. I thing all your good vibes helped - so thank you again!
Anyway, onto today's outfit. I worked late again tonight (but the newsletter is now done), and I'm hungry.here last weekend for $19.99) and the Jump for the People shoes (purchased just this past weekend for $25.00).
I loved the silky swooshiness of the skirt - I did wear a half-slip under it, and the bottom half started to get a little static-clingy on my legs. Otherwise it was good. I'm not shortening the skirt - I actually like this length.
The shoes were ultra-comfy! It felt like I'd had them for years. I actually really like this grey/bone shade - it's a good neutral.
Feel free to weigh in on the skirt and shoes - I want to hear what you think!
The brown satin blouse was only worn once in the June 2012 all-neutral capsule (recap here), and I noted back then that it was due to my poor planning. It's been a wardrobe staple and classic for me since I first got it back in about 2009.
