What I Wore on Instagram

Fingers crossed the cast comes off tomorrow. Once that happens, after taking the longest shower and scrubbing my body from head to toe, I'll resume outfit photos. But in the mean time I've been sharing my (almost) daily outfits on Instagram and I had to share here because there's been some fun new things.

I've become pretty good with this cast, I'm now flexible enough to get on non-stretch tops and dresses and zip and button jeans. The other day I even buckled my sandals all by myself and I can now unhook my bra without turning it around to the front of my body! This opened up my wardrobe even more, and has made getting dressed a bit more fun. What I have been wearing:

Top row: Karen Kane Contrast Lace Dress which is lightweight for summer but a style that can be worn later in the year; Felicity and Coco high-low hem knit dress with an old belt from Hobo Bags; Flor faux wrap dress via Gwynnie Bee

Middle row: Dobbin Clothing Jackie dress in navy with leopard pumps from Ivanka Trump; this weekend I cut off the longer layers of my hair (and am tempted to cut off more!); typical weekend look – black tank from Caslon, these denim shorts, silver Birks and my Rough & Tumble bag

Bottom row: Karen Kane dress from last year (last seen here); my beloved Eliza J dress (seen here and here); Fourth of July in a LOFT sundress from last year and a J.Jill necklace

I look forward to sharing here on the blog soon, and thank you for your patience and support. And if you want to send any strong bone/cast-free vibes my way I'll happily take them!

    You look amazing in all of those! I’m so jealous of your curly hair! Very impressive attention to detail while struggling with one arm out of action.

    Count me in as loving the curls too! And loving that lace dress in the top row. All the looks are fab, and have a great time scrubbing!

    God DANG I love your curly hair.

    I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately, so I should probably comment more. This cast has to have been such a ridiculous test of your patience! I’m sending tons of good vibes and positive thoughts your way. And for the record, you do indeed make that thing look pretty chic.

      Aw no worries, I haven’t had time to comment, I’m a mega lurker on your blog! Thank you dear Cammila! <3

    Get a really good scrubbie for your arm. It’s going to be very flaky and scaly and you’ll be shedding more skin than a growing Kong size reptile!. I’m very happy for you.

      Thanks Patricia! Totally, and last time I remembered how nice a thick salve (like Egyptian Magic or a Vitamin E cream) was because after the King Kong shedding (great description!) my skin was so raw! Blech!

    The new haircut is ADORABLE. I think it looks great on you. Sending you good no-cast vibes for sure!

    I love the Felicity and Coco dress. May I ask what size you chose? I’m a 5’2″ 14 petite, but sometimes I size down for a regular. I’m busty with fleshy arms, but otherwise I’m pretty proportional to standard sizing. Thanks! I’m sending you good cast-free vibes!

      I got a large and it was a hair longer and looser than I desired so I took a risk and put it in the dryer. Did exactly what I hoped, a hair shorter and smaller. Know that at your height the length may be a touch too long; when I wear it with sandals it touches the ground. Good thing, it has been machine washed several times and hasn’t faded!

    That pink dress is awesome. I want it. You look great in it!

      Thank you! I got it in a different print and hated it, but this one was so good I hated to send it back!
