I have on a couple iof occasions, but only because it was pissing down and I didn't want to get wet feet.

Wellies aren't a good look with smart trousers

What an odd thing to be bothered by, much more "weirdy" is people that wear sandalls in the winter

DP wore shorts to the shop once.

In Decem,ber

No, she was only about 25.

It was wrong.

I have worn boots with my jeans this week... not wet enough for wellies, but too wet for flip flops

IntergalacticWalrus Fri 27-Jul-07 10:43:29

Also, you look a nobbo wearing wellies round the supermarket, I find.

I am still wearing my boots sometimes with jeans 'cos it feels autumnal.Anyway, if I wear my nice sandals they'll get soaked - might as well keep them looking nice for next year now!

Hmmm I was at a mtg on Tuesday with loads of women weraing boots - I thought it was odd - one was wearing sheepsking boots with pompoms ! In JULY !!!!

I was wearing bare legs and ballet shoes with skirt in case anyone wondered !

PanicPants Fri 27-Jul-07 11:59:57

So WHAT are you supposed to wear if it's raining and cold?

Idreamofdaleks Fri 27-Jul-07 12:03:40

wear shoes or wellies
NOT winter boots

LeafTurner Fri 27-Jul-07 12:06:09

I like bare legs with shoes in the rain - can just empty shoes out after puddling !

I just could not wear boots in July - now ay !

PanicPants Fri 27-Jul-07 12:07:57

But what sort of shoes? Flats - you get wet, same with sandels and flip flops, and high heels hurt (You can wear socks with boots!!)

LeafTurner Fri 27-Jul-07 12:08:45

Flats, or low wedges for me - can not walk in heels ! Ideally with some holes in design to allow water to drain out !

LeafTurner Fri 27-Jul-07 12:09:28

Thing is - you get wet anyway !!! My feet dry quicker than socks do !
