As some of you may know, a couple of weeks I had a little accident on the way to work. A delightful lady barged into me at the station, sending me flying onto the concrete floor. It turns out I’ve damaged my patellar tendon which basically means two things: I’m in a lot of pain and I can’t wear heels. Horrific, right?! Being a heels devotee, I had to go on a shopping trip to buy a couple more pairs of flats to see me through the next few weeks… On a serious note though, it’s been incredibly difficult to find nice things to wear as I need to be in flats and have a support bandage on my knee, which isn’t very attractive.
For the first week or so, I pretty much lived in leggings and long jumpers but felt like I needed to snap out of that phase and just get on with it. Most of my trousers are too tight on the knee with the bandage underneath and skirts are a sort of no-go as the bandage looks terrible beneath lace tights. When I visited Primrose Hill, I was so sick of my clothing predicament I left the bandage at home but of course I took my must-have accessory for this season – my crutch. How will you be rocking yours this season?
