I forgot my shoes.

Michael by Michael Kors heels (option, option)

Yeah. I forgot my shoes. What normally happens is that I get ready in the morning and then take photos right before we leave for work. 99% of the time, I take photos before work - when my makeup is fresh and my clothes are not wrinkled (in theory.) It was business as usual this morning, but when we came in from taking photos, I decided to change into flip flops for the commute. It was a little drizzly out, so I didn't want to worry about my heels. Plus, I'm in the middle of this pedometer challenge at work and didn't want my heels to persuade me to take any short cuts (literally) from the car to my cubicle. I placed my heels in the perfect shoe-sized tote, set the bag on the kitchen bar stool... and walked out the door. (Kind of like when you put all your food nicely in the to-go box, just to leave it on the restaurant table.)

When we pulled into the office, I got out of the car and started gathering my things. Um. Where are my shoes? Not in the front seat... not in the back seat. Greaaaaat. The first time I wear my new peplum top with my favorite red pants topped off with amazing platform sandals (that I have in three colors, mind you) but instead, I got to walk around the office all day with brown, foam, sporty, Nike flips flops. Neat.

(I had to do the criss-cross pose for full effect.)

Sigh. At least I got pictures of what could've been! (Cue Tiffany's song.) I know you guys have to have similar horror stories. Please sharsies! Misery loves company!

  1. I often have nightmares of forgetting my pants.... Which is why I have to set EVERYTHING out the night before I go to work.

    1. Oh, I wish I had the energy to pick my outfits out the night before. I'm so terribly bad at waiting until the last minute. Hence why I'm always late.

  7. That totally sounds like something I would do! At least your outfit is so cute it makes up for the lack of cute shoes and your feet were probably super comfy all day. :)

  8. Is the tag still on your purse? Is that a thing now?

    1. Hahaha! No! I have the feeling the purse is supposed to be like a gift with a now and a faux tag. It's just a good plate that has the label name on it.

      But I'm pretty street to leave my tags on stuff.

  9. When I was late in my pregnancy with my first son, I couldn't see my feet. I actually wore two different pairs of flats-a shiny patent leather and a regular leather. No one said anything. My husband noticed as soon as I walked in the door.

    1. Awww! Well you had a very good excuse! One time I went to work with one black boot and one brown boot. I was wearing a skirt, so both were completely exposed. I really have no idea how I didn't notice. No one else did either!

    1. I don't know why picking out outfits seems like the biggest chore! Kind of ironic since I love shopping and I have a fashion blog. Haha! Too many choices I suppose. Thanks for the comment and for stopping by!

  11. Poor thing. Your outfit looks great and I love the top. I can't say I forget my shoes, I usually forget my flip flops which I Need by lunch to give my feet a break.

    1. That's a great idea to give your feet a little lunch break of their own!

    1. Yes, very true! A lot of people told me I should keep a pair of neutral shoes at my desk for times like these. It's only happened this one time, though, and I think I've learned my lesson!!!
