Top: Ann Taylor Outlet
This is probably my favorite skirt in my closet. I bought it a couple years ago with a matching orange top & I thought of it the only outfit. Since starting blogging I've forced myself to take a closer look, and I've successfully remixed this skirt several times. I've labeled all the entries "orange skirt". What do you guys think? I'm kind of partial to this one. I really like the blue top. I think it tones down the brightness of the print in the skirt. Maybe I just like this one because it's a nice break from all the pants I've been wearing.
I've recently starting having a lot of pain in my lower back & hips, so I've starting seeing a new chiropractor! When I was 12, I was diagnosed with scoliosis. (Defined: my spine is curved). As a kid it really didn't bother me & I went to a specialist every 6 months so that they could monitor it. I never really thought it was a big deal. Well apparently it is a pretty big deal. My lower spine has a 42 degree curve & my upper back is 33 degree. My spine is basically in the shape of a 'S' & my hips are out of alignment. Looking at those x-rays I was really blown away. I've seen x-rays of my back before, but when she explained them to me the realities of it really set in... I knew my hips didn't line up my shoulders, but I didn't know it could cause lung deterioration, spinal cord issues, etc. But I've decided to be proactive about it. My chiro is working on my alignment twice a week, I'm getting weekly massages (dr's orders!), and I'm working on building up my postural muscles. I really want to be able walk in 10 years.
FYI: Getting a massage on my lunch break on Friday ruins my productivity for the rest of the day! But honestly, I don't really care. They are that awesome! What took me so long to discover their awesomeness???
