Pattern Mixing and a Broken Toe

Happy Friday!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned.
I finally broke out my Prabal Gurung blouse from the Target collection. 
 I have been waiting for warmer weather to wear it.
I decided to do some major pattern mixing with it and my graphic pants. 
 I know it is a lot of pattern,
 but I think it works well.
  Keeping the jewelry simple I went with pearls, white and colored.
Are you wondering about the broken toe bit in my title? 
 Yesterday I broke my middle toe on my left foot. 
 I never knew such a tiny appendage could be so painful. 
 It is black and blue and now all taped up. 
 Thank goodness it is sandal weather
 and I don't need to cram my foot into a shoe.  

Have you ever broken a toe?
How long did it take to heal?

The pattern mixing totally works! The top and bottoms look like they were made for each other.

Bummer about the toe. Never broke a toe, but my dog dropped a rock on my toe once and it hurt for like 3 weeks! Get well soon :)

What wonderful bright colours on your blouse, all fresh and zingy and gorgeous! Perfect with the graphic print trousers.
I think I broke my little toe last year, by stubbing it. It HURT! Like hell! I didn't bother getting anyone to look at it, just taped it up myself, but it hurt for ages afterwards if I knocked it, and then ached for a while longer... It's fine now though!
Have a great weekend, hurt-y toe and all! xxx

OUCH! That sounds awful. But this outfit is anything but painful. I love the patterns and colors!

Fun top! I really like the mesh detail at the shoulders. :)
I think I broke my toe a few days before my wedding. I haven't gone to the doctor for it - I figured it could heal on its own because it's not crooked. It hurts if I bang it, but I think it's healing OK, just have to be patient! :) Hope your toe is feeling better!

Oh no, sorry to hear about your toe! Foot problems are just the worst.

I love your Prabal Gurung top, that was one of my favorite pieces of the collection, but i missed out on it.

Yes these items work very well together. I am always a bit afraid of pattern mixing, but I like this. Makes the outfit more interesting.
Hope your poor toe stops hurting soon.

Heather said...

Oh I just love that top! And yes broken toes are the WORST! There is nothing you can do and they are so easy to break... and hurt like no other! Take care girl :)

You look fabulous in this daring pattern mix. I am jealous of your ability to wear that great blouse. I can't wear that color - ratz.

Hope your toe heals quickly. I haven't broken mine, but I know peeps that have. It's a hurry up and wait kinda thing :(

Brooke said...

Oh no, ouch! I've never broken a toe (or anything else) so I have no idea how it feels or how long it takes to heal. All I know is that stubbing my toe is painful enough, so I never want to know what it feels like to actually break it! Hope yours heals quickly!

What happened to the toe, Brett? From how you described it, it might've taken you a week or two before the bruises disappeared. While the bone condition, only your orthodontist can possibly tell. Good thing you can still wear chic sandals to remove the spotlight from the injury. Sienna@Fort Lauderdale Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine
