I will be moving to the land of desert wellies in July. My mind is in turmoil.
For at least 1/3rd of the year the temperature will be circa 50 degrees C so I will be in shorts at all times when not in the office.
I normally accompany shorts with flip flops like any self respecting male. Never a sandal.
At age 50, I am not about to start wearing trainers with shorts. I'm not part of the barmy army.
But can you wear flip flops with your shorts when going somewhere more formal than the beach? I fear that I will be drawn into either:
(a) wearing long trousers and some form of boating shoe without socks (like I'm off the set of Miami vice circa 1980), or
(b) trying out variations of leather sandal trying to find one that doesn't make me look like a scout master
Oh the dilemma.....
