"That Girl"




Jacket (Old Navy); Top (Robin-K find at Marshalls); Dress (JCPenney);
Shoes (Payless); Umbrella (H&M)
Ryan Seidel Photography

Of course I would wear my faux suede shoes on rainy day.  I always seem to be "that girl".  That girl who trips on a perfectly flat sidewalk and who more than once has used hotel body lotion instead of conditioner on her hair.  Just this weekend I left my classroom to go to the bathroom, only to realize I locked myself out (luckily it was before class and no students witnessed this). I went downstairs to tell the front desk gal that I needed to be let into my classroom, and she said "no problem, what room are you in?".  I said "thanks and 3200".  Which would have been fantastic if my classroom was 3200... it's 2300.  So about twenty five minutes later she found me on the second floor, shaking her head.  Oops :)

I always wear the most inappropriate shoes for rain. And when I think to wear rain boots...the forecast is wrong.

Oh I've been "that girl" before too. I was "that girl" who locked the keys in the car of the loaner vehicle she had when her car was being worked on when filling up the gas tank. Oh yes I was.

I love this look, the skirt is lovely! And your umbrella is really cute too!

Kathleen Lisson said...

I like the umbrella. And I cannot get my front door to unlock sometimes.

Maria DaintyandDecadent said...

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I'm the same way. I have ruined a countless number of shoes that way. *sigh*. Your dress is so adorable, also!

Bonnie said...

I am totally "that" girl. I always wear the wrong clothes for the weather. I dress like it is 80 degrees when it is 50. I dress for sun when it rains. I dress for sun when it snows. You would think that I would use the fancy weather app that I paid $10 for ... Nope. No, I don't.

I love this look Heather and the booties look great! As for teaching? I had no idea that's what you did! Corporate seminars? Interesting.

Rachel @ Making Life Fabulous said...

I have days like that too! And it seems to be a law of nature that wearing suede boots results in a rain shower :P I love the skirt, the color is so happy!

Julia said...

Hahaha, your posts crack me up. Probably because I feel so similar! I don't know how many times I have tripped on flat ground... you could probably count all the scuffs I have on the toes of my shoes because of this... Fail.

These booties are so adorable! Very fall-esque.
