Wearing them and standing on them in these pictures. All that hard work paying off big time for Mr SGS - I reckon he does stripes just as well as Mr Boden!
This is my favourite breton and a true wardrobe staple - the Boden long sleeve Breton in ivory/navy. It just goes with everything. Also wearing my Brooklyn Supply boyfriend jeans that I picked up for next to nothing in TK Maxx back in June - they're available here on the ASOS site and here at Zalando but for more than I paid unfortunately. Size-wise my jeans are a 28 and the Breton is a 12.
And the FitFlops....so I've been wearing them now for a week after so many reader recommendations and while it's been super boring wearing the same shoes every day, I can't deny the comfort factor. In fact, yesterday, for a change, I put on some ballet pumps. I couldn't stick them for more than 30 minutes and putting on the Fitflops after being in regular shoes for just a short time was amazing...like walking on air!
I can't say they're changing the pain in any way as I'm still on medication but I do get the sense that now I'm walking a little more each day, they're reducing the impact on my back...and I think they're kind of funky actually. Not everyone's cup of tea but they are a nod to the fugly pool slider style shoe that's been all over the high street this summer and I like that.
They did take a couple of days to break in. I thought they were going to rub as I felt some stiffness around the front strap but after wearing for two days, that totally went and I didn't get any blisters or marks. Oh and size-wise, I do wish they did half sizes. I was advised to size up if between sizes, which I did and the 7 is fine. I think a 6.5 would have been finer though.
All in all, I'm happy but the rest of my extensive footwear collection is feeling very neglected right now. Let's hope the good weather continues until my back feels well enough to move into non-fitflop territory, otherwise I'm heading for some cold toes as I'm not so keen on the FitFlop pumps...anyone tried them?
Hope you're having a good week - back soon with a very belated holiday oufit run-through!
