Fashion (non)Sense

We went to the aquarium this morning. Walked around for an hour or so (including feeding the lorakeets, which decided to land on my head and in my bag). Then we dropped the kids off at mother-in-laws, and David and I went out to lunch. We walked along the main street, had a quick bite, then strolled back to the car. It was a perfect day, in the low 70s and clear skies at the beach. Then we drove back to MIL's house.

Why am I sharing this incredibly mundane story of my day with you, I'm sure you're asking yourself by now. Because, when we pulled up in MIL's driveway, I for some reason happened to glance down at my feet - and noticed, much to my surprise, that I HAD TWO DIFFERENT SHOES ON!!!! At least they were both Cole Haan thongs. But I had a black patent shoe on my right foot and a brown shoe with a silver ring on my left foot. I was wearing red pants and a black shirt, so the brown was particularly egregious.

But of course the worst part is I am apparently so out of it that I didn't even freakin' notice for hours. HOURS!!

It makes me frightened of what my next fashion disaster might be. Hopefully for everyone's sake I won't leave the house without my pants..

I think it's even funnier that DH didn't notice your little fashion mishap before you did! ;)

Too funny! I did that once...showed up to work with 2 completely different shoes on. I was so horrified that I had to drive home at lunch (45 minutes each way!) just to change! To this day, I never leave the house now without double checking my feet! I bet you'll be doing that from now on too!

Melissa - HA! You must be joking. DH?!?! Notice shoes?!?!! HAHAHAHAHA!

Kristy - I once put on an old pair of junkie brown shoes to go outside to get one of my dogs. I completely forgot and went to work. There was no way I could go home once I noticed the problem (I was wearing dressy black pants) so I just HAD to stop at Nordy's and by myself a new pair of black shoes..

That is hysterical as well as a fear of mine: both the mismatched shoes as well as wearing the junky old shoes/slippers to work. Hey, look at the bright side, at least it gave you a funny blog entry to write. ;-)
