Shades of Grey
Getting dresses this morning was a challenge. I'd planned, originally, on wearing a few outfits this week that involved bare legs or skin coloured tights. However, after my crash yesterday my knees look like this...
...and unfortunately, fat, purple knees are yet to become cool, so I was forced into black tights. The first outfit I tried on didn't really work, which frustrated me, so this is kinda simple. It's the kind of outfit I wanted to be able to create as part of 30 for 30. Something simple that I could just throw on without having to think too much about it. Something comfy and easy. These shorts are too big now and the zip is broken but I've had them for about 3 years and absolutely adore them. And the tshirt is from Walmart.
One of the rules of 30 for 30 (which I chose to ignore), was no shopping for the 30 days, but I found yesterday that I didn't want to shop. When you know you have 27 more outfit to create without including anything new, the appeal of a new dress or a new top is kind of gone- you know you won't get to wear it for three more weeks. However, accessories are still exciting, so I bought a new hat which I thought made this outfit a little more exciting.

Today has been spent resting and trying to recover, but I still feel like death. The whiplash kicked in yesterday and the stress of everything has left me utterly exhausted and all I want to do it sleep. I'm in quite a bit of pain, but I have to just keep reminding myself how much worse it could have been. Thanks again for all your lovely messages and comments. It really means the world to me after such a horrible time. I managed to drag myself outside for 5 minutes to take these pictures and actually thought they came out okay, considering.
Well I'm going to veg out for a while and hope the pain relief tablet I took earlier kick in soon. I haven't skyped Erick for over a week and we'd made plans to speak tonight so I have to stay up until he gets home from work. I hate time differences!!
