I've been working out pretty hard at the gym lately.  Amazing the motivation that comes with knowing I will be on the beach in less than 2 weeks.  While the working out may be good for my gut, I did something over the weekend that killed my right knee.  I've been a runner for years and years and have never had a problem with my knees, so this is a bit concerning for me.  Being in heels yesterday totally aggravated it, so much so that I was limping last night!  Today I wore flat boots and my knee felt much better.  It's not sore to the touch anymore so I think I'm on the mend.  I guess my mom was right when she said excercise can be hazardous to your health.  Maybe I should just go back to lounging on the porch with wine.  Ha.

This Tippi is totally reading blue in this picture but it's my purple one.  So strange how it showed up as blue.  I felt kind of mod in this outfit, and very comfy in tights and flat boots.  I think these boots will be in heavy rotation during the winter months, when walking on the icy sidewalks and parking lots can be hazardous for a tall, clutzy girl like me.  Black boots seem a little less casual and more work appropriate to me. 

Do you like flat boots?  Thanks for visiting!
