Living in Flats

Thank goodness for flats because they are about the only shoes I can wear right now. Why?! Well, some of you may have seen my Instagram story of a couple weekends ago of my swollen foot. I was in Florida and just trying to have a nice evening stroll on the beach with the husband when I felt the sharpest pain in the bottom of my foot. I seriously thought I stepped on a screw or nail and was expecting blood to just start gushing out. Thankfully, it was only a bee but still. We are pretty certain it was dead already, if not, I definitely killed it. Anyway, I stepped on the bee and got stung on my toe. The next day I woke up with my foot swollen and it wouldn’t stop. I thought I might be having a mild allergic reaction but Benedryl did nothing. So I spent a long weekend hobbling around Florida with a swollen foot.

So long story short, I get home and hit the doctor and find out that bacteria got into my foot (gross) and caused an infection. Apparently this is common. Now I’m on my second set of antibiotics because, of course, I had to go back to the doctor because it got better then back to worse. Sheesh. I’m over it but at least the swelling has started to subside and is no longer up to my ankle. 

I’m glad that I can actually walk normally and not have to wear my Nike’s. I still can’t wear heels but at least I’ve got a few pairs of cute flats to put into the rotation. Also, how fitting are these Gucci slides that they have a bee embroidered on them? Also note to self, wear sandals when walking the beach from now on.
