Sandals and tights in the rain!? Let me explain…

Before you think I’m a nut, let me reassure you that I am generally practical in my clothing choices (though I rarely give up my heels). Weather dictates my outfits most days.

It was rainy today, which would normally mean boots or some kind of total foot coverage. But it was also warm, which meant wearing sandals if I didn’t want my foot to feel trapped in a sauna.

Enter my wannabe Marni patent sandals. They’re shiny and fun and oh yeah, waterproof !! I paired them with some lace tights for texture, and as an added bonus, they don’t get wet like regular tights due to all the holes. Plus, it was nice to feel a little bit of rain on my feet.

I guess I wouldn’t recommend this idea to those caught in torrential downpour, but as the sprinkling’s been light in Ye Olde Berkeley, I figured this would be fine. Only downside is that my shoes have virtually no traction, so I suspect that I provided endless amusement to those around me… :D

Love the lace tights.
