I broke my leg recently and although the cast is off and I am walking with crutches. therefore, can only wear flat shoes. i only have a red pair and because I am a shortarse, my trousers are too long for flats. I have a black pencil skirt. Will that do? What should I wear with it? Am a loss because I am normally a long trousers and heels girl.

I am running a training course so will be "on show"

How about black top with black opaques, pencil skirt and red shoes? (what style are the shoes btw?)

Pencil skirt and red flats sound fab. Maybe with opaque tights too. Have you got a black shirt, or black top to go with - then you could do subtle matt red lipstick, or a more of a statement necklace so the main outfit is plain but with statements at either end if that makes sense!

I do have black opaques and a black top. they are ballerina pumps.

Do you think that would work?

Of course you think it would work - otherwise you wouldn't have suggested it blush

Oh, and have a really nice belt I bought in the sale - black with a silver clasp. that might work with it too.

I never wear skirsts, and I never wear flats to work either as I am only 5ft and my co-trainer is 6ft 1!

Great - I'm jealous you have a reason to get "dressed up" during the week! smile Says me in my leggings and fluffy slippers!

just got back and anxious to get back into leggings and fluffy slipper grin. Haven;t worn anything else really last 6 weeks due to broken leg so feel a bit trussed up.

Thanks for the advice. whilst I felt short, I felt presentable grin
