I want to share that I have always followed your get dressed to the lace up shoes rule.
I think it is because when I was a child I grew up in mostly homes without carpet and so neither of my parents ever asked for us to take our shoes off.
Actually I was quite poor as a child and grew up with an alcoholic step-father and 4 siblings so we had much bigger fish to fry than worrying about whether dirt got tracked in from outside!
Anyway I wanted to share that because I follow your lace up shoes rule and so does the hubby – we have amazingly soft feet! It is so wonderful when you do finally kick off your shoes and socks at the end of the day and play footsies with your man or you and the kids rub footsies and everyone’s feet are pleasingly soft because you protected them with shoes and socks!
Just a bonus from following wearing your lace up shoes – when I am able to treat myself to a pedicure the girl at the spa always comments how lovely my feet are.
