What’s Black & White & Limping Like A Lizard?

That’d be a Marci. Today I’m wearing black and white, and limping the way a lizard would if that lizard’s knee cap felt like it was on fire. Take close note at my standing photos, and see how much weight I have on my right leg. The answer is going to be none.

Dress (long sleeve): Thrifted | Dress (external): Charlotte Russe | Tights: Target (like, years ago) | Shoes: B.A.I.T

I was fine for most of the day, although the past few days I’ve been feeling a twinge-y-reminder of my old knee injury. Then I got on the bus and I literally fell into the open seat as an explosion of fire radiated from my knee cap. It was awful. Walking home from the bust stop was even worse. A tear may have been shed. I could feel it through my entire leg. Ugh. Have I whined enough? Are you guys making your best “Oh Poor Baby” faces? Good.

David hadn’t come home when I took these photos (and typed this post), which means two things. First, that I had to write that above paragraph since he wasn’t here to make the Poor Baby Face (he does it so very well) and it also means that I had to take my own photos. Which is awkward. This outfit was totes worth it, though, if I do say so myself. I like the black and white combo when it combines as many patterns as possible. The back was my favorite, although it was hard to get a good photo.

Most of my day was spent running errands, but one stop on a bus I rode is right next to a cemetery. I’ve ridden this bus hundreds of times, and gone past the cemetery more times than I can count, but I’ve never had a reason to take that stop before now. I decided to take a little break after my last errand and walk around the cemetery. It was beautiful and calm, but it felt so noisy and full at the same time.

  1. I’m so sorry about your knee- I hope it heals quickly! I love the mix of black and white prints, what a great look! I just got those shoes from BAIT and I’m so excited about them 🙂

    • Thanks, I’m hoping so too! Doing the physical therapy stretch is helping wonders. I hope you absolutely love the shoes! I like them a ton, but they’re not the easy, daily black flats I was hoping they would be.

  2. Aw, I really hope your knee feels better soon! That sounds like no fun at all. 😦
    You’re right, though. That outfit is totally worth it. And on a different note, your hair looks amazing in these pictures! I know you were trying to figure out a way to cut/style it. Did you do anything different to it? Not that your hair didn’t look amazing before. 🙂
    Also…Beulah Sundquist is a cool name, I must say. Oh, the stories that graves can tell…I’m wondering who Thelma was in relation?
