This season’s must have accessory…

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? 

Playsuit – ASOS
Belt – H&M
Shoes – New Look
Sunglasses – Rayban via Brand Alley
Crutch – NHS 😉

    I've always feared an accident that would force me to wear flats. Yikes!

    Really sorry this happened to you, but you still look fabulous, with crutches and flat shoes. The tights are pretty incredible by the way. I hope you get to feel better soon xxx
