28 Days Later

Top: B.Moss
Cardi: Mossimo
Jeans: J. Crew
Ankle Brace: hospital (it's the latest accessory!)

Day 28 of the 30 for 30 Challenge!  I understand you can't see my outfit at all in this picture, but there is a reason for this. Yesterday I was running late to meet a girlfriend for dinner, so I was rushing to the restaurant.  I slipped and ended up spraining my ankle.  Ironically, I was wearing my only flat 30 for 30 shoes at the time!  I wasn't even in heels when this happened.  As you can see from the photo, my foot is humungo!   Dut to swelling and my brace, I couldn't fit any of my 30 for 30 shoes over my ankle today.  Why, oh why, did I choose so many heels??
It bums me out that I have to stray from my 30 for 30 because of this.  The jeans (and only pair of pants included) were ruined because I tore them at the knees when I fell.  So, at the 11th hour, I have to make some substitutions.  I am so bummed!  I found a similar pair of skinny jeans and included them.  I'll have to find a pair of shoes that will fit over my poor ankle. Oh well, I feel okay that I didn't cheat because I couldn't take the challenge or because I didn't take it seriously.  I have held true to only wearing my 30 for 30 in my posts!  

PS: My mom told me to write "My brace doesn't count in my 30 for 30!"

You're so Hollywood! Near the finish line and slipped. Reminds me of Cars. No, I know there's another movie that fits better.

Seriously though, I'm glad you're okay! Mom's right, a brace is an accessory!

i fell three weeks ago on thursday. sprained my right ankle and really hurt the arch of my left foot. been hobbling around since in yuck gym shoes...the only thing fitting over the braces. i feel your pain. i was wearing flats at the time too. not rushing though. just tripped outside in the dark. hope you/we feel better soon!

Oh my gosh, what a trooper! Hang in there, but mostly take care of your ankle first!

Joy said...

Oh no. Bless your heart!! I hope it's already on the mend!! And a couple of substitutions this late in the game, for this reason, I'm sure is fine.

Only 2 days to go!

OUCH! Dang, I'm sorry that happened! I'm glad you didn't break a bone, but still so sucky :( I'm glad you've got your feet up, and sorry about your pants. When I was in high school I ripped and patched over 5 pairs of LEI jeans because they were my faves, I didn't like stretch jeans, and I insist on wearing my jeans WAY too tight. Lesson learned (oh no, didn't stop wearing them tight - just succumbed to that lycra-added). Me-me-me-me-me!!

I hope you can keep than foot up, somebody is waiting on you, and that it heals quickly!

Aw, I hope you feel better! :)

Feel better soon!

Boo. :( I hope the ankle heels quickly and that you're back on your feet in no time! :)

Annebeth said...

haha I just thought you were wearing an ankle monitor like Lindsay Lohan or something, hahaha :D thank god it's just a brace, right? :D

kimmie said...

Oh my gosh, that totally sucks! Ripping jeans AND getting hurt? I hope your ankle feels better soon,

And when you're back on your feet you should TOTALLY go take pictures at the EMP. It's always pretty empty in the back!

Terrible news! But I see you're still smiling in that picture, despite everything. I hope you heal as quickly as humanly possible and get back to struttin'!

Matt said...

That's so horrible to hear!! I hope you make a swift recovery! I'm pretty sure injury and making allowances for that is an understandable exception to the 30 for 30! Good luck! :)

I think it was a sign that you fell wearing flats. I think the sign is telling you that you do way better wearing heels. You should stick with heels once you are better. Hope you feel better.

Chas said...

Aww I hope you feel better soon! At least you are still smiling!

Indiana Adams said...

Oh no! Feel better! I'm really impressed with all y'all who did Kendi's 30 for 30! Well done!

oh no! so sorry about your foot, kinsey! get better soon!!

Nancy said...

Awww, poor Kinsey! Hope you get better! :D I know I shouldn't think it's funny, but the flats comment... I fall in my flats all the time! It's like I don't pay attention vs. wearing heels when I know I have to be careful!

Sorry to hear about your foot. Hope you will get better soon. On another note, many thanks for your comment on my post. Really appreciate it.
