Thanks, Vera!

So, I have to tell you guys about this fashion oopsie that happened to me today. If anyone will appreciate it and laugh with me, it would be all of you. It's a classic Katie moment, let me tell you...

Thanks a lot, Vera.
My Vera bag in Poppy Fields - gift from my boyfriend

So, today was one of many rainy, soggy, cold days that we have had this week. Basically, I have had a need to carry my umbrella with me every day this week. I was in a bit of a rush this morning, so when I couldn't find my umbrella in its usual spot by my front door, I gave up looking and left for work, hoping it would stop raining by lunch time and/or I would find my umbrella in my car. Well, I searched my car quickly and didn't find it so I reached my hand inside my bag (see above) to see if I had shoved it in there. Nope. Not there either.

Lunch time came and it was pouring outside by this point. Not wanting to have any worse of a hair day than I was already having, I asked any of the girls I worked with if I could borrow their umbrella during lunch, snatched one up and left.

An hour later, I came back to my building and sent my purse through the metal detector at the front door as usual. Just as I am getting ready to walk away and get back to work, one of the security guards says to me, "Carrying a back up umbrella, are you?" and smirked. Um. Erm. What? Oh my goodness, is THAT where my umbrella is!? I ask. He started absolutely cracking up and then showed me on the screen.

Um. Yeah. My umbrella was in my massive bag and I had totally missed it.

Only I would A) forget I shoved in into my massive bag and B) still not find it after searching inside it. Seriously. So silly.

How is that for a mid-week giggle?


  1. I LOVE it....and it soooo sounds like something Id do....I usually just give up searching for something after five minutes in my purse..hahaha...glad you found it!

  2. I lose my life in my Vera bag. I have to look 3 times for anything! But, I could never part. It's a love/love/hateatinybit relationship.

  3. TOTALLY something I would do too! I am constantly misplacing everything AND I don't even carry around a huge bag. My life is pretty much one big facepalm!

  4. At least you found it! I put so much stuff in my purse that I can't find anything in it half the time!

  5. I do that all the time! Just not with umbrellas usually. (We don't need them very often, or I would) Ah, the perils of carrying a gigantimondo bag.

  6. Hahaha, that's serously something I would do!

  7. Lol I have some of those days too.Like when I was searching for my phone and it was in my pocket for the longest haha. It all happens to somebody and they are great stories to tell haha . It had me rolling..haha
