Yesterday, I bought these:
Not precisely what I was after, but super-comfy (well, will be after the wearing in period, of course) and most importantly, can be worn with a skirt / dress without looking just plain tragic or like an old skool raver1.
I wore them all day without socks with very few issues, however I think they will be quite revolting after the trip though – my feets get a tad sweaty.
So, yay! Another thing crossed of the holiday list!
Less than three weeks to go – goodness!
I have to say that I have not been at all involved in the planning of this – Don has done simply everything (and mad props to him for that!), the booking, the decisions on accomodation etc etc.
I was thinking on the walk home how I am really looking forward to the pure shock of being immersed (albeit for a short time) in a different culture (and just being outside Australia) and how will be very interested to see how I react to it all.
1yes, I was one, but I am rather too elderly to rock that look anymore
