Default When Packing, Don't Forget.....

Whether you're packing for a cruise, or any other holiday, don't forget to pack your DRESS shoes!!
On my recent All-Inclusive holiday, I packed like I normally would for a cruise; shorts, T's, bathing suits, flip flops, and 1 or 2 "dress up" outfits for dinner. It was only when I was dressed for dinner that I realized I forgot to pack "dress shoes" or nice sandals. Here's the photo:



Don't worry, I didn't go barefoot. I chose a "dressy" pair of flip flops, the ones covered in tiny coloured sea shells, over my only other choice - bulky big white and purple lace up athletic shoes!

P.S. at least I had Trip's lovely beaded necklace to dress up the outfit, and direct attention away from the underdressed feet!

Donna you looked lovely. I am sure no one noticed the feet.

Ditto! I have no doubt that not a single person noticed your lovely feet. At least you didn't do what I did on a cruise many many many years ago, and pack all your shoes in the checked luggage the night before debarkation. I left the ship with a party hat on each foot. (I was a real hit with the U.S. Customs people)

Ken, I knew you were a very creative guy!!We've forgotten belts before, but not shoes. I'm sure we'll forget something on Thursday, just as long as it's not our passports and boarding passes!!
