Yesterday was a chilly overcast Forks-like kind of day. We all got up early and went to Mass, then we came home. I made lunch and afterward I went out to run a few errands. That’s my key word for out hunting for a new craft project. While I was out I was repeatedly confronted with women wearing sandals or flip flops. They usually had on a jacket or hoody and long pants but their tootsies were left to freeze.
I’m sorry-I do not understand this. If you happen to wear sandals when it’s cold out-please comment and tell me why. I honestly don’t get it.
I know it’s spring and we’re all itching to get into our warm weather garb-but I can’t understand wearing sandals when it’s forty degrees outside. On Saturday which was-although slightly warmer and sunny out my feet froze while wearing my Chucks, so much so that I had to come home and put on my UGGS. Are these ladies immune to cold feet? I totally understand the need to wear cute sandals…or shoes in general, but I’d rather be warm than be miserable with freezing feet.
I learned that lesson the hard way two Easter Sunday’s ago when I wore cute sandals with my Easter best-and was miserable the entire time. Needless to say, I won’t do that again-EVER!
I grew up in Miami, sandals and flip flops are worn all year round. It makes sense. Miami is warm practically every day of the year. Here in Virginia…not-so-much!
This is what I was wearing yesterday. I actually got to wear my Hunter Boots in the rain too! It was great, my feet were warm and toasty thanks to my welly warmers. A side effect of these darling boots that I was unaware of is the urge to jump in puddles while wearing them.
The picture is a blurry mess, but Michael snapped it with my iPhone before we left for church-he said, “Mommy let me take your picture, you look so pretty.” He was totally trying to butter me up to let him play on the PS3 but he was so cute while doing it I couldn’t say no. His buttering up worked of course!
