I tried out drop crotch pants a couple years ago and decided they were too uncomfortable what with all that extra material bunching around between your thighs. Also, that was around the height of my legging obsession, where I think i didn’t wear real pants for over a year. I had been thinking about giving drop crotch pants another go, so when I saw these Lululemon ones on clearance for $19, I sort of HAD to buy them. I ended up liking them so much more than I thought I would! I think the key is, you have to really commit to the awkwardness of the entire look. There’s no avoiding it! Looks weird from the front, even weirder from the back (i.e., diaper butt).
And of course these wonderful new boots. Also a testament to the beauty in awkwardness. From the bread-like round toe shape, to the strangely stumpy heel and heel height – though not objectively aesthetically pleasing, somehow it just works. Not to mention that the leather is absolutely fantastic. No breaking-in period needed!
In other news, we’re going to Vietnam next month!
Husband and I will be going with May+Calvin from April 3-14. It will be a return trip for everyone else, but will be my first time. For some reason, none of us realized that April is one of the hottest months to travel to Vietnam. Whoops. Any tips on Vietnam travel? Right now, I’m trying to figure out footwear. Sandals are ok? Will my feet get dirty if I don’t wear shoes? Will I really shower 2x a day? Do i really need to bring my own utensils everywhere? Do I need malaria pills? Can I really not eat fresh fruits and vegetables? Should I really not wear any jewelry? Is everyone really out to scam us because we’re American-born Vietnamese? How much of this is older Vietnamese relatives being paranoid and how much of this is truth?
