Balancing Act

(Dress and Belt- I Heart Ronson @ Jc Penny's, Denim Blazer- Nordy's BP,  Shoes- Nine west @ the Rack, 
Bracelet and sunnies- F21)

I bought these shoes at the end of last summer. When I tried them on at The Rack I fell in love. I loved the color, the height, the comfort was just okay (I can usually get past that part). I guess I never realize how difficult they were to walk in, until I tried my turn at the concrete balance beam.

I was once a gymnast, and figured my skills would come right back..muscle memory, if you will. Then, as I rushed to step up on the platform as my timer light was blinking, a memory came flashing back. The time I fell while straddling the balance beam. Now, if you're a guy reading this... you probably don't have much sympathy, for you have probably injured your manly parts in many unthinkable ways. But please understand: It Still Hurts. Anyway...

I took two pictures before the fear of falling and breaking off my ankle overwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid of heights. I rock climb with the best of em! (Maybe not the best, but I can hold my own). I just don't do it in heels. The height plus the added height plus the rocky terrain below= recipe for skinned knees. Although I do enjoy a good scar, I figure I have accumulated enough per square inch of skin.

Can you say...rambling? wow. Okay brain, get on track.

It was SO windy out when I took these photos. So windy that it knocked my camera over and made me look like I have a mullet. I promise I don't, but would you still follow if I did?
