Dress: Kohl's; Cardigan: Target; Belt: Forever 21; Leggings: Old Navy; Shoes: Mr. Shoe

I took probably the most embarrassing tumble of my life while wearing this outfit. Let's just say, thank goodness I had leggings on. I was trying to cross a busy street in the rain before cars came, and of course there was someone also from work right behind me. I forgot how slippery my shoes were, and I started to trip. I tried to recover, but instead I lost my balance and fell to my knees, and then my side, and then my chin. On the wet ground in the middle of the street. Except I didn't scrape or hurt anything because it all happened in slow motion. Seriously, I was falling in slow motion, which was the most embarrassing part. It almost would've been better had I been thrown to the ground and came up bloody. The guy behind me asked if I was OK, and I was like, "Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. Apparently my shoes are slippery," trying to make light of the situation. I then hurried away as we both walked into the parking structure. You can kind of see my wet leggings in the pictures above.

This is how I felt about that.

On top of that, there was so much traffic, and I was so frustrated trying to get to the mall to meet my friends. As some retail therapy, I ended up buying $90 jeans. The cost doesn't bother me too much because I've been wanting to buy good jeans for awhile. As long as they were under $100, I figured it wasn't too bad. We checked out Hot Mama for the first time, and the crazy saleslady there convinced me to buy a size 12 pair of black skinny jeans. I'm normally a size 16 in pants. I probably should've gone with a 14...buuuuut, I'm supposed to be losing weight anyway, so it works. If in a future outfit post it looks like I'm wearing too tight black skinny jeans, I probably am.


  1. What an adorable look! I love the booties. I'm sorry to read about the tumble. It's a good thing that only your ego was bruised and not your body. It really is a good thing that you were wearing leggings. :) I love how you played it off though. That's confidence right there! Retail therapy always fixes things for me, which is a bad thing for my bank account but perfect for my mood. Haha! I can't wait to see the skinny jeans that she talked you into buying. I'm sure you'll make it look fabulous! :)

  2. Dad fell in slow motion once, or maybe twice. He loves telling the story. At least you didn't break your hip or get run over by a car...could've been much worse. You should google stars who have fallen in public. They had something on entertainment tonight just recently about that.

  3. I hope the retail therapy made you feel a little better. I love Hot Momma...they sales people there are very convincing!!!
