Fashion Disaster.

We didn’t have any patients today at work, so I got to go in later at 8:30. For some reason, on these days, I’m always running late. I get distracted reading blogs, and watching things like Michael Jackson’s bodyguards on Good Morning America.

I had a fabulous outfit planned today, and looking good always makes your day better, right? As I was rushing out the door, I grabbed a light jacket since it was going to be near 50 today. I hadn’t worn this jacket since last fall, but I knew I had just had it cleaned, so I put it on and went on my merry way.

I walk into work and a girl following me into the locker room says, “Whoa! Did you shit your pants?!”

Um, yeah I did. Why, do you smell it?

Just jokers. Of course I said “No!” And then she’s all “Well, it looks like you sat in shit!”

Wha wha what? No way. I knew it had to be chocolate, but I hadn’t eaten any chocolate and Shawn had just vacuumed my car out last night. My boss accused me of eating Cadbury eggs on the way into work, but even I draw the line at Cadbury eggs at 8 o’clock in the morning.

Gross, huh? This is my “I don’t like people thinking I shit my pants” face:

Oh well. I figured there was nothing I could do about it now. But, then the fashion disaster got worse. I was also wearing a shirt that I hadn’t worn since fall. When I put it on this morning, I thought “Oh, this is cute! Why don’t I wear this more often?”

Well, only 5 minutes into work this morning, I realized why I don’t wear it. Because this:

Keeps going like this:

Oh, and that’s my “WTF Banana Republic? How could you do this to me after all we’ve been through?” face. That hook kept coming undone literally every 3-5 minutes. Grrr.

But, that’s not all. Oh no, that’s not all. There were no Cheetos in my lunch. A guy stole the gas pump I was waiting for. The gas nozzle sprayed gasoline all over the side of my car. And the gas pump didn’t print out my receipt.

After the gas station debacle, I figured I better wash the gasoline off the side of my car. I dug through my purse, and finally found $5 of Girl Scout Cookie money (I’ll totally pay it back!). So, over to the car wash we go. Only to find that it was gone. GONE! Nothing but a pile of dirt and a couple machines which were mocking me and my gasoline covered car.

So, I peeled out of there, on a mission to find another car wash. After driving through one town and heading towards another, Alivia says “Mom! Where are you going? This is not the way home.” I explained to her my hunt for a car wash, only to be interrupted with “Yeah, like you’re going to find a car wash way out here in the middle of nowhere!”

Thank you, 6 year old backseat driver. Thank you very much.

Best. Day. Ever. If nothing else, my shoes were still fabulous:

I love the facial expressions that go with your crazy day. When it rains it pours, right?

And yes, those shoes are fabulous!!

Hillary said...

I do love your shoes and I literally almost peed my pants when I saw your "I don't like people thinking I shit my pants" face. However, I didn't want to have to practice my "OMG, I really just pissed myself" look.

Stephanie said...

LOL! I thought I had a Terrible Tuesday! We both had issues with dirt/chocolate/poop today!

BTW: I agree with Hillary. I about lost it when I saw your face!

Tami, you are seriously in the wrong profession... you should be an actress. Your facial expressions are so impressive.

For all it's worth, at least the shoes are fabulous. xoxo

I would have totally called or texted you yesterday during my bad day, but I was at work and trying not to get too wrapped up in it. I promise next time I have a moment...I'm yours!

Practically Perfect... said...

Oh gosh! If it makes you feel any better, one day my husband came home with a melted mini Hershey's bar stuck to his jeans! I would've freaked out, but he was just like, "Oh - I was wondering what happened to that!" Gah!

Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

What a cute outfit....sorry it didn't go smoothly trying to wear it. Take that jacket to the cleaners and rock it a few more times before it gets to hot!

Erin said...

You are right---the shoes ARE fabulous!

I have had a few WTF moments w/ Banana Republic, but they're still my fave. I can't help it.

LOL re: the back of your coat!!

Yankee Girl said...

Thank goddess for amazing shoes. They are my silver lining every single day!

Mrs.Vid said...

I had a Cadbury egg on my way to work this morning.. Yes, that was my breakfast. Lucky for me though it didn't end up on my coat. :) Looks like you had quite the day yesterday. I did love your shirt even if it did constantly come unbuttoned it was cute!

The Kid said...

LOL.

You look great in those dresses. Even if the hook keeps coming off :)

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

That coat is rockin BTW.

What a horrid day, but you still looked great and that DOES make the day better.

I totally agree!

Paige said...

Thank you!
No girl, I actually don't follow McMama's blog...It's Harper (shhh!) haha. It would be Harper Caroline.

Taylor-Made Wife said...

Instead of calling you RN Mama, I am now going to call you Poopy-pants Mama.

blueviolet said...

Oh come now, that's entirely too many fashion must-not-happens in one day. Like you though, I take solace in the fact that your shoes really are nothing less than fabulous.

d.a.r. said...

Adorable coat!! Sans the poop stains, of course...ha!

Amy said...

OMG Tami...what a freaking day!!

Super cute outfit though (minus the chocolate & that asshat clasp!)

Lara said...

Cadbury Eggs at 8 am would be delicious! I'm counting down the days till the Easter bunny makes his special delivery. And I do love your shoes!!
