The breakdown of a stumble.

Shirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Target
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Target
Purse: Coach

You know those awkward stumbles you do while wearing heels or wedges.  That little trip that you know is bound to happen at least once that day.  That scary few seconds where after you look around laughing to see if anyone saw you, and no one did, so you end up laughing by yourself. (Then you look around to see if anyone saw you laughing by yourself.)  Okay, well we've all been there.

Lucky for you readers I captured the anatomy of a stumble on camera.  I am going to break this down into the four basic phases we all go through.

  1. Distraction.  Oh hi foot that is pointed directly up to the sky with your heel digging into the uneven grass. Yes, this is will cause some turbulance and yes, this will affect your pride in the next few minutes.
  2. Pure panic.  That moment you realize you could be down down, and going down hard.  That moment you look for something.. in fact anything to grab to help you stay on your feet.
  3. The lunge.  Okay yes, you caught yourself from your body full-on hitting the floor, but you still look like a fool.
  4. Playin' it cool.  The forced laughter kicks in and the search begins for any eyes that make contact with yours.  The realization that you are all by yourself laughing also kicks in.
