What I Wore to an MRI
I had an MRI today on my knee and I thought I would share with you what I wore to my appointment. I should say that it is because of this knee issue that I am not wearing heels. I love heels, but I need my knee to heal up first before I can strut in them once again!
I wore skinny, ankle, black pants from Banana Republic, nude, Audrey Hepburn style flats, a New York Yankees jersey, a black (faux) leather jacket from Forever 21, a chunky, gray, infinity scarf from Gap and many accessories.
The outfit was easy, accessible and showed off my style and what I love. The pants were a sale item from last year, but they are incredible comfortable and fit my shape great. They aren’t restricting and have a bit of stretch in them as to allow one to move. Forever 21 has recently had a number of leather jackets. Look for one that is more classic, has a great fit and shape to it, looks more real than fake and isn’t over embellished. Also, I am a firm believer that every woman would have nude flats and pumps. They elongate your legs and match absolutely everything. Side note: I love these nude oxfords and am dying for a pair that looks like them. I love the entire look of them. They are fabulous. I also love the scarf because it is warm, oversized and chunky. These are aspects that I really like.
Finally, the Yankees jersey. I am obsessed with the Yankees and love dressing up my sports gear. I love this because it is something that shows what I love and, also, this is a take on the female version of my menswear post from yesterday. Side note: I am diverging from my typical fashion theme and going to take this time to thank Andy Pettitte for an amazing career. I wish you a fabulous retirement and thank you for your years as a Yankee. You are one of the greats, sir and will always be a Yankee and loved by Yanks worldwide. Thank you. Side note 2: If you are a female sports fan, I beg of you, please never wear pink sports gear. Wear your team colors. Please, for the sake of all females who love their teams.
And now, my accessories. I wore two Tiffany and Co. necklaces. One is a heart, from my wonderful man-friend, with the New York Fifth Avenue script and the other is a “B” for my name. I also wore a long necklace with a “R” for my man-friend that was an old typewriter key. In addition I wore bronze and silver dragonfly earrings, a Tiffany and Co. chain bracelet, Tiffany and Co. sunglasses and three rings. One is made from a spoon, one is a large white topaz and diamond ring that was my great-grandmas (and topaz is my birthstone) and a small gold and diamond ring that has incredible sentimental value as the diamond was from a necklace my grandpa gave to my grandma.
Let me tell you why I wore these accessories – they all have meaning for me and comfort me. Dragonflies have an incredible meaning to me, the rings (beside the spoon) have sentimental value and my necklaces represent me and remind me of my man-friend. I wore all of these things because they provide comfort in a sometimes scary situation.
Overall, I chose something that was relatively basic and made it my own, while retaining comfort and ease.
