Today's displeasure was courtesy of my horse. He's a great horse, I love him lots, but I could have done without his landing squarely on my big toe this morning. And he put nearly his full weight on it. Fortunately for us all, I'm practically made of rubber & riding boots are designed to handle that kind of thing, so there are no broken bones to report. Just pain and swelling.

I had a hard time finding a pair of shoes that didn't apply any pressure to my swollen toe, so I wore my trusty Target cutout shoes. Since my feet are hidden by a desk, I didn't wear my right shoe most of the night SHH DON'T TELL ANYBODY! Anytime I had to walk I put my shoe on but most of the night I had it elevated on a stool. Be happy I didn't put a toe picture in the space between this paragraph and the one above it!

If you follow Everybody Everywear, you know that today's maxi dress day. I'm sitting this one out because in all honesty I hate maxi dresses. They make me look very boxy, I think they're uncomfortable and they cover up one of my best assets, my calves. I guess you could say that last one about pants too but at least pants are flattering sometimes. But I'm enjoying seeing how everyone else has styled their maxi dresses! Head over to EBEW to see all the looks. Hopefully next month's selection will be something I'll want to jump in on.


  1. Yowza about your toe! Did you curse and swear for a moment that your horse was out to get you? That's what I do when my dog trips me. Or I figuratively have to kill myself to keep from stepping on my cat. Anything to do with an animal and pain. The dog I know doesn't mean it, but that cat... sometimes I think she's sneaky. I haven't been around very many horses. I imagine them to be very majestic and noble.
    I really like by the way that one of the labels for this was s***. That made me giggle. Awesome pics too. I love the mesh up of colors with the rusted beams and the vibrant sky as well as your bright color combo. Very fun.

  2. Oh Elle I'm pretty sure they could hear me screaming two counties over. The worst part is that there's nothing you can really do about toes except take a painkiller and hope for the best. For a split second I thought Indy had it in for me but after I collapsed on the ground and pulled off my boot (to avoid my foot swelling inside there!) I looked at him and he looked so sorry. I couldn't be mad at him. I can guarantee however that my cats are out to kill me.

    I drove slightly out of my way to get to this bridge, and it was soooooooo worth it. There are a ton of photo locations in that little area!
