OTS Dress

Hi friends and happy Monday!

We returned from our week long cruise yesterday and what a cruise it was! I’ll have a wrap up all about it on Wednesday.  Before I left for my trip I prepared this post to share with you.  I’m still trying to collect my thoughts on our vacation and figuring out what you’d like to know about.

I found this adorable OTS dress at Kohl’s a few weeks ago while I was out shopping for Father’s Day gifts.  Dang you Kohl’s for putting this dress right where I could see it on my way to the restroom!  Honestly I didn’t really want to buy myself anything but this  dress  kinda called out to me.




















See what I mean? It’s cute, right? And how about the color? Did I mention it was on sale and I had 30% off? Yup, Kohl’s gets me every time. Something else that get me every time? The wind. Yes, I had to hold it down while we were taking pictures because the wind picked up as soon as I went outside for pictures #wellplayedmothernature. I wore an old necklace that has brown beads and tortoise shell beads along with my favorite leopard cuff and my Vionics.

I decided to show a little more love to my Vionics today.  You may remember back in March when I went to the podiatrist about my foot pain.  He told me I needed to wear these and so I did. What a difference they’ve made for me. He also told me I needed surgery to fix my bunions (btw, that word totally grosses me out). At the urging of a co-worker I got a second opinion from an orthopedic surgeon. He looked at my x-rays and advised against surgery. Seems my bunions (there’s that gross word again) aren’t that bad and the pain in the ball of my foot is being caused by irritation from shoes I’ve worn as well as my long toes. It’s basically a physics problem according to him and having surgery would cause me more pain. My husband and I agree that if a man who makes his living performing surgery doesn’t advise surgery then I should listen. So, until the pain is gone which may take some time I need to be gentle with my foot. Basically that’s impossible since I walk on it but it hurts to go barefoot and I’ve decided not to run for awhile. I have been living in these and these. These heels have been a Godsend to me! I can handle other shoes on a very limited basis but for right now I am so grateful to have found Vionics because they have made a world of difference for me. Maybe they can help you.

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and I wish all of you the very best!  I hope your celebrations are safe and fun.  God bless the USA!

  1. Well of course you had to buy that dress! It’s adorable on you!!! I am so sorry you are having such foot issues. It really makes you appreciate all the parts working properly when something is misbehaving. I had Plantar Fasciitis for over 3 years and it was HORRIBLY MISERABLE!!! Take care of those feet, sweet cheeks. (that kinda rhymes?) Happy almost 4th of July friend!!! XOXO

    1. Oh girl, you are right about appreciating all the parts of the body that are functioning properly, lol! I don’t mind getting older, getting wrinkles, etc. but I sure do miss my great vision and my pain free feet!
      Hope you have a fabulous 4th my dear!

  2. Kellyann, I have problems with my feet also, many years of wearing high heels. I have to wear expensive shoes with a good arch. Are Vionic shoes pretty much to size. I usually wear an 8, so if I order would an 8 be the right size to order?

    1. Hi Paula! Yes, Vionics run true to size, I wear a 9 and have gotten a 9 in all of the Vionics I now own. They really do make a difference. Foot pain is no fun and so many of the comfortable shoes just aren’t cute but these look good and feel great. Let me know how you like them!

  3. Cannot wait to hear more about your vacation my friend. You nailed this outfit once again. I own an almost identical off-shoulder dress in a very similar color by Loft which I have still not worn. But I almost bought one in this exact style in Kelly green at Target. Actually I purchased it online and then canceled it. And the thing is Green looks great on me. I need to get it lol.

    Happy 4th of July sweetheart!

    1. I saw that green one at Target and loved the color, it’s so pretty! I have imposed a shopping ban on myself for a bit (I’ve packed on a few pounds this Summer I need to ditch) and I am already regretting it, there are so many sales and so much shopping goodness out there! Thank you for your sweet comments my friend!

  4. Lovely dress, super colour.
    Funny but I’m happy to talk about my greying hair till the cows come home but I detest talking about my bunions and bunionettes. Instead I refer to “foot bones spreading as one ages”. Feels better.
    And I felt better instantly when I went to the link with those cute sandals you’ve been wearing. I’ll swear my feet breathed a sigh of relief when they saw the arch and bobbled foot ball design, whilst I delighted in their stylishness. Then I saw “sold out” :-(.

    1. I’m with you Mary, it’s so much easier to talk about almost anything but all those foot terms disgust me! I’m sorry those cute sandals are sold out, keep checking, you’ll love them! There’s so much about getting older that doesn’t really bother me at all but I never guessed what would annoy me most was foot pain! Not being able to wear any shoe I want has created a crazy ripple effect on my wardrobe and it’s not pleasant. I think there are quite a few of us suffering out there, at least we’re not alone!
