Picture 002Picture 0032Oh, I am so MacGyver! Yesterday was a tough day – got all the way to the Metro from my office and realized I left my cell phone. Did this by digging through my purse, having someone bump into me from behind and end up spilling the contents of my bag. By picking everything up I realized my phone was NOT in the mess. This sucks a LOT because my husband broke his Blackberry and is awaiting his replacement and our home phone is having war with Verizon (not working).

Get on the escalator for the Metro, get to the bottom and my heel gets stuck in a grate. I try to wiggle it out, hoping to not lose the heel cap; it was saved but the strap of my shoe broke. I tried to limp to the train but due to the construction of the shoe if wasn't happening. Arrrrgh! What can I do to tie this together? Hair elastic? Nah, that's too short. Safety pin? Don't have any on me. Aha… my camera strap!

Wasn't the most comfortable getup but it did get me through transferring trains and walking a few blocks to my car! Husband was also impressed with the on-the-spot ingenuity! 🙂

Anyway, today's look!

  1. Adorable outfit…looks super comfortable. And you barely look pregnant. I actually didn’t even realize you were until I read some other posts where you referred to it. Wow! You’re looking great. !

  2. Way to go girl on that quick thinking! Brilliant! Thank goodness you had your camera with you. Smiles.

  3. Good work, MacGuyver!

    As a two-time veteran of pregnancy, I’d recommend buying a couple of pairs of well-made flats. As you get bigger, your tummy will throw off your balance a bit, and your ligaments will loosen. Strappy shoes are a recipe for a twisted ankle. Ask me how I know!

  4. What a nightmare!! I did a similar thing to my mum years ago in an airport (I stood on her sandal as she was walking in front of me – it was an accident!!!)
    Well done with the repair job!!!
