Barefoot and Braless

March 31, 2010


I work from home. There are days when “casual dress” in my “office” does not include shoes or a bra. All day.

I love that.

Yesterday I picked up Leah from school in that very state of dress. Or undress. Depends how you look at it, right?

I loved that, too.

And for the record I had a dark shirt on and sat in my car the whole time. Not that if I had to get out of my car it would have mattered. 34Bs don’t have a lot to say with or without a bra. G-d bless the small chest.

I’d go barefoot all the time and everywhere if I could. There is nothing better than feet in the grass or walking on concrete to get the mail. I love shoes, but I’d prefer not to have to wear them. Because of this my late grandmother used to call me The Barefoot Princess. I like that title. It suits me. It also causes an extraordinary need for continuous pedicures, but that’s okay too.

So, fess up. You’ve done this, too. I know you have. What was it? Braless in carpool? Pajamas to the pharmacy in the middle of the night? Barefoot to the bank?

    I run errands quite frequently in my exercise gear on the weekends. Sometimes in the summer I’ll go to the store in the in my swimsuit WITH a sundress and flip flops, of course. That’s about as undressed as I get. Sorry, but my job requires shoes, undergarments, the whole shooting match.

      I’ve done the swimsuit thing, too. I’ve actually driven (more or less through the neighborhood) in my bikini top and shorts on the way to a pool – which felt kinda inappropriate. 🙂

    I go braless (and usually shoeless as well) to drop-off EVERY morning. I’ll let you know how it goes the day I actually have to get out and be seen 🙂

    36F – I don’t go braless. Ever.

    Sweatpants to the grocery store is as far as I’m willing to go in the “disheveled in public” arena.

    I’m so casual, one day I wore shoes AND a bra in public, and my friends kept asking me if I had a job interview …

    um,…you did wear lip gloss at least, right? my m.o. is a wife beater & yoga pants when i get home from work. but i have gone commando a few times when i need to run an emergency errand. otherwise, inside my house the attire is jungle chic.

    keep an emergency bra & flip flops in your car. ya don’t wanna mess up them perty toes or have them tata’s flailin all willy nilly if you have to step out…

    just sayin.

    Well, Pammer… You know I could never in this lifetime go braless…. unless I really want to hurt myself or someone else….Scary thought. Shoes? Oh, please. I am barefoot in the office right now……

    I guess you were not around during the late 1960s and early 1970s, going barefoot everywhere was quite a fad for young people, you could see barefoot girls shopping in stores and malls, even in New York City. Some would do the whole summer barefoot if they were not working. And aren’t you aware of the feminists of the early 1970s burning their bras? And shopping in swimsuits was not that uncommon on hot days, especially when you got closer to beach towns.

      As a child of the early 1970s the best memories I have are running around barefoot all day everyday. I strive for that even now.

    What is a bra? Never heard of that…. 😉 I think we should all go barefoot once in a while.
