When outfit photos go wrong....

Boy, do I have a story for you guys.

Yesterday, Patrick and I only had a few hours to spend together for Valentine's Day.  I opened at Starbucks and got off at 11 and he had to be at work by 4.  We had planned on going to a nearby park to take some adorable pictures and then go to his house to cook an early dinner.  At the park, we proceeded to take the adorable pictures:



After these pictures were taken, I saw two tree trunks side by side and thought it would be cute if we stood on them.  Patrick stood on one and I set the timer and got the camera ready, and went to stand on mine.  As my luck has it, the tree trunk wasn't anchored to the ground, and as soon as I stood on it, it slipped beneath my feet and I did a full-on face plant to the ground.  Yupp.  Here's a pretty embarrassing picture that the camera caught:
Don't worry, I actually started laughing when I saw that picture! I'm chuckling now just thinking about the whole incident!  It was the first time that I've ever had a bloody nose, and it was a pretty bad one! Thank God Patrick was there with me, he took such good care of me and remained so calm!  The first thing I said after "I've never had a bloody nose before" is "I don't want to get blood on my clothes!" to which he replied, "Ah, a true fashionista! Your fellow blogger friends would be proud!"  And sure enough, he made sure that not a drop of  blood got on my clothes.. not even my beloved white heart tights!  What an amazing boyfriend!

We got back to his house and his stepmom got me all cleaned and bandaged up.  For about 3.5 hours, Patrick and I just were just laying down and watching movies.. Zombieland and The Notebook, to be exact.. a pretty strange combo.  Afterward, I was fine to drive home and I went to bed around 8:30.  I still feel a little sore, and I'm pretty sure my nose is broken or at least fractured.  I'm kind of swollen and bloody, so there won't be outfit pictures for the next week or so, sadly! Unless I get really courageous.  

Have you guys ever been hurt while taking outfit pictures?  Sara from Swing the Day Away told me via twitter that she once scraped her shin up pretty bad after slipping on some ice! Makes me feel like I'm not the only one, haha!

  1. you poor thing. i haven't hurt myself yet, but here have been some potential mishaps. i'm sure it's only a a matter of time. nice tights!

  2. Oh no! Do get it checked out if you think it's broken. You'll want to see a doctor for that. I'm so sorry it happened, but it looks like you have a good man around to help you out while it's healing :)


  3. Oh least you can laugh about it. I'm glad that the two of you got at least a few hours to spend together.

    Love your tights. I was looking for heart tights and I should have known to look at H&M!

  4. oh your poor thing! :( your other pictures look lovely though :)

  5. oh wow, that story makes me laugh and frown at the same time. the photo that came out of it is quite amusing, but I'm sorry to hear you're so beat up. feel better!

    I also adore your tights!

  6. Oh god Brittany....that pictures makes me laugh so hard! But only because I know you ended up being ok after the incident :) I really hope your nose isn't broken....but I agree that you should have a doc check it out just in case!

    P.S Absolutely adore your heart tights <3

  8. Awwww,you poor thing! I hope you'll be ok! Your outfit was so cute, too. At least you got a few pictures.

    (PS: I'm sorry, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, but that picture kind of makes you look like the witch form Wizard of Oz, with just your legs sticking out! In a very cute and adorable way, of course. )

  9. you two are so cute! glad you didn't get too badly hurt when you fell! It's always good to be able to look back at yourself doing something silly and laughing. :)

  10. oh no! so sorry about the photoshoot troubles! glad to see you picked your self up gracefully after a minor set back... can i just say that you and your boyfriend are just adorable? so compatible - it looks like you both really enjoy each other's company :) very sweet...

    about your tights...! more than envious those are not sitting in my closet right now :)


  11. Lol...I probably would've said the same thing! "I don't want to get blood on my clothes!!!" Those tights are adorable! I hope you're feeling better! Did you go to the doctor's?

  12. Aww, this story is so sad but that last photo is cracking me up, hahaha! That is totally something that would happen to me! When I fell on the steps the other day, it wasn't during an outfit post but Brett was like Patrick in that photo. Hahaha, awww!

  13. oww. i hope you feel better!! your boyfriend's quote is really hysterical though. very proud! bravo! lol

  14. Since you're not hurt, I can really laugh at this! That sooo sounds like something that would happen to me. Once when I was wearing a new outfit that I thought looked pretty cool while I was in downtown Charleston, I was too busy admiring my skirt and shoes to watch where I was going (I figured I was OK since I was holding K's hand), and I walked straight into a fire hydrant and totally banged up my leg- lovely welts and bruises for weeks! I wasn't taking pictures, which is probably good, because I don't think I was nearly as graceful as you about it, hahaha! Hope you heal soon!!

  15. I really hope you're ok bus as Tieka said the last pic made me laugh. You should go to the doctor. Have a nice week and i hope you get better!!

  16. Aw! This is so sad but kind of adorable. That picture is priceless. I hope you're feeling better now. I love those tights!

  17. Oh my goodness - hope your ok and that you get it chencked out - I too had to laugh at the pic with you lying on the floor - priceless capture!!

    Cute pics beforehand though :D

    CC xXx

  18. Aww, what a sweet V-day, nonetheless. B and I spent it with friends - nothing fancy. I love how festive you look in the heart print tights!

  19. What a good boyfriend! And cuddling on the couch watching movies is one of my favorites ways to spend the night with my honey : )

  20. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. :(

  21. Oh sweet girl!! I am so sorry!! That picture was pretty freaking funny though!! You have to admit its pretty lucky to get such a great action photo! I have never actually hurt myself while taking pictures but I am sure it will happen someday. I am glad to hear that your knight saved you and took such good care of you after. He sounds like such a keeper! (cute too! lucky girl!) Again, so sorry and hope you will be well on your way to recovery by now. Awe!
