I think I was meant to live in warmer weather. I love wearing sweatshirts, mind you, but I would much rather wear tanktops and I’m in heaven when I’m walking around barefoot or in slippahs. (I suppose on the mainland they’re called flip-flops)
This year I wore slippahs and sandals as long as could into the late fall/early winter. Even when I wouldn’t wear then to school, I would wear them on the weekends. After wearing slippahs almost 7 days a week for the past 8 years, my feet do not like being constrained in shoes. It just isn’t comfortable any more.
Now that it’s finally starting to warm up- I’m excited! Two weeks ago, when it was in the upper fifties, I wore my winter coat and flip flops to work! Yes, it may be a bit crazy, but my feet were only cold during the few minutes I was actually outside. Otherwise they were warm, and more importantly comfortable! I wore them again this week when the temperature was near 70.
Today, we’re in the low 40’s. I need to decide whether I brave the cold or not. Comfort or practicality- that is the question!
