Today I’m giving my old school friend Styling You a run for her money.
Okay, maybe not… But a week or two ago I talked about travelling to Sydney for a blogging forum and – because I (incorrectly!) assumed it’d be cold – I had to try to quickly re-acclimatise myself to my Doc Martens (ie. the only practical winter shoes / boots I own).*
I used to live in my Docs. Indeed I’ve been through a few pairs and they served me well when I lived in Africa and Asia; and on my return, my trusty Docs saw me through many-a-Queensland (and Canberra) winter. However… since my seachange I’ve become a thong-wearer. (ie. A wearer of rubber thongs ON MY FEET… and not the kind my Finnish friend Satu initially envisioned!)
In my previous life if I was scuffing about I’d throw on sandshoes (runners / sneakers), leaving them unlaced to go grocery shopping or the like. I don’t think I even owned a pair of rubber thongs! Now, I only wear flat summery sandals for ‘special’ occasions (dinner out, business drinks etc). Other than that… it’s thongs all the way baby!
I work part-time for a website development company. The guys I work with are very casual and we rarely have visitors to the office so, we can pretty much get away with wearing anything. So naturally, I wear thongs. I’ve mentioned this a few times in the last week or two and gather people think I’m joking… so I thought I’d share the evidence.
So there you have it. Riveting stuff isn’t it? I don’t think Styling You and the Everyday Stylers have anything to worry about from me. Of course if they saw me on my days at home in my #softpants they’d been even more horrified!
Do you have any rubber thongs in your possession?
If it wasn’t necessary, would you wear real shoes to work?
Linking with the lovely Trish from My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday.
