I'm not going to sugar coat it: this week has been a nightmare!  A hugely stressful and exhausting week.  My son is sick at the moment.  I won't bore you with the details but just know that it's been a tough week!  I find it hard to cope with the worry of looking after him when he's unwell.

In order to keep me going, some online retail therapy was necessary in the form of a new pair of shoes!  I was so excited when they arrived, as I haven't been able to go out. Check them out!  Aren't they cool?  They're so cute and comfy.  

As I haven't been out of the house all week, except to take my son to the hospital, I've been wearing them around the house.  Who says you can't wear cute shoes around the house?! Anyway, the outfit below is me playing dress-up at home.  Hopefully soon I'll be venturing out in this exact outfit! Hopefully soon I'll also be able to get some sleep!

 The outfit:
Top: Sussan
Cardi: Millers
Skirt: Tasa Jara

Necklace: Bought at pop-up store

Ring: Diva
Bag: Robin Ruth

Check out my new shoes!   Aren't they fab?  

Shoes: Cherry by Hot Chocolate Design

  1. The outfit looks really nice & would help lift your spirits when things around home are stressful. I do hope your son gets well again soon. Wow, the shoes are really gorgeous. Flossie

  2. Oh now I hope all is well with your son - it's so hard when they are unwell, and the hospital doesn't sound good!

    On the plus side, you look great and I like that outfit with the little touches of red.

    Hope that things improve for you this week.

  3. Egads that sounds stressful. I hope your son makes a full recovery soon. Trips to the hospital are not fun. And yes sometimes retail therapy does the trick. These shoes are too cute!

  4. Oh yes retail therapy helps for me for minor problems
    but for family and health problems, shopping does not help
    my mind still worries.

    Love the skirt. I love the boho vibe in your outfit.


  5. So sorry to hear your son's been unwell. I can totally understand how stressful that must be. I do hope he's on the mend by now. As for your outfit, it is totally fabulous, you are looking gorgeous in the those colours! And I love the shoes, too, of course! xxx

    1. Thanks so much, Ann! He's finally on the mend! XXX
