A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


Dress: Fifth & Mae // Shoes: Yosi Samra c/o Shop Adorn // Hat: Kohl's // Necklace: Fifth & Mae // Sunnies: Old Navy //

You guys, before I talk about my outfit, can I just tell you about my worst day ever?? So yesterday morning, I was looking around in my kitchen trying to find something to eat. Nothing was striking my fancy until I saw there were still some leftover brownies in a pan on the stove. The brownies were about a week old, (so they were kinda hard) so I grabbed a steak knife and tried to chisel a brownie out. As I was holding the brownie pan with my left hand, and chiseling with my right, the knife slipped, and caused me to literally stab my left wrist with full force. I immediately started gushing blood, and ran into the bedroom to wake up my husband. "Babe! I cut myself, and I'm bleeding really bad!" At that point I started crying, not because I was in pain, but because blood seriously freaks me out. Like bad. I was still in so much shock, so the pain at the moment didn't even phase me. I called my mom, and of course she rushed over with all of her medical supplies. Luckily the bleeding had stopped by the time she got there, so she was able to just sterilize it (WORST. PAIN. EVER.) and put some steri-strips on (instead of getting stitches) and wrap me up!

She calls me later in the day asking if I needed anything before she headed into a movie, and I was wanting nothing but popcorn. So she brings me over some popcorn, and in the process, my dog runs outside, so I ran out there after him. Barefoot. I chased him for about a mile on my bare feet. By the time we got home, I had THE WORST blisters on my feet.

To make the day even worse, my dog then of course was barking up a storm outside, and I had to walk (with my seriously painful blisters, might I add) down the stairs to go and get him and bring him inside. After all this fuss, I thought the easiest thing I could do at that point was order myself some pizza. After I enjoyed my delicious, greasy pizza, I limped to take my plate over to the sink, and in the process, spilled the garlic sauce ALL OVER. As if my day couldn't get any worse, right?! So basically, that was one of the worst days of my life, and I'm so glad it's over. Too bad the day after had to be a Monday...

SO ANYWAY. I'm seriously thrilled to be talking about these shoes! These fab Yosi Samra shoes are from the cutest shop called Shop Adorn. They were nice enough to send me a pair, and I'm so glad they did! I just got them in the mail on Friday and HAD to wear them that night. They are SO cute, comfortable and lightweight! I wore them to a barbecue, and felt great in them all night. They are the perfect summer shoe, and the orange seriously makes for the most perfect pop of color. I'm totally in love. Shop Adorn is super great, and my shoes got to me within a matter of days. So if you're in the market for a great new pair of flats, seriously go get yourself a pair NOW.

  4. Jody!! Omg I wanted to hug you after reading this post. You poor thing! I'll be honest and say that I did sort of laugh at the visual of you trying to cut into a pan of petrified brownies...UNTIL the part where you said you stabbed yourself! Geez girl! If we lived closer I would bring you over a fresh, hot batch of baked brownies and a spoon and we'd just eat that whole pan til it was gone.

    Hope you're all better soon and that this week treats you better than last!

  5. Oh my goodness! What a sad day!!! You poor thing... love that you ordered yourself a pizza after a day like that, totally something I would do!!
    Love this outfit. I really love the necklace, I need to start shopping at Fifth and Mae!!
