Top: Anthroplogie / Denim: 7 For All Mankind / Slip-ons: FitFlop (c/o)

I was doing fairly well being peaceful the first month of the year, but then the pendulum started to swing the other way and suddenly found myself in urgent care wondering about this huge tender bump on my scalp behind my ear. It hurt so bad I couldn’t even sleep on it – and the doctor guessed it was a swollen lymph node – which means I might be fighting something. I’m going to say it’s fighting a bit of stress as this past week was just that. But it’s OK!  After this week I’m going to lay low, garden, do whatever I need to do around the house. I put a post-it on my monitor that says, “No” and its just to last me through the end of this month.

Do you ever block off days for some R&R?

^^ This top I had to have after seeing a lace sleeved sweater and came across this, flowers! I’m pretty selective about lace and this was just perfect. It also comes in black.

My college bff Jackie called me from work to quickly touch base about our Switzerland trip. End of April will be here before we know it and we needed to figure out the extra 4 days we’ve extended our trip (10 full days!). We kind have a game plan and now I’m thinking of all my outfits, naturally.

I’ve been wanting slide-on shoes for a while, other than my moccasins (which are still rad to me) and FitFlop sent me this pair which will go with all my neutrals! Uma Thurman is the new spokeswoman for the brand, she looks so darling in the high tops, she makes me want to get another pair in this pink lizard print! The superwoman talks about what makes her feel confident and feel powerful and she says comfort – which I couldn’t agree with more.

From flats, boots, to slip-ons and even the coolest high tops I wore in North Carolina, FitFlop has some pretty cool styles that will keep you comfortable – so I think I’ll be packing these with me to take to Switzerland as Jackie and I jump on trains and planes as we explore.

I hope you do all the comfort things to find restful your body and soul.
