One reason I decided not to put ff knee surgery any longer is that I could not imagine wearing my horrid off-loading brace against bare skin. I also want to wear normal shoes again. This pair of peep-toe pumps that I found today will go great with the shirt that I also found. I have a couple of mid-thigh skirts that will go really well. In my new job, stockings and below-the-knee hemlines are not the rule. I'll admit, I pushed that envelope when I worked at the bank. Now I can wear summer friendly clothes without getting a sideways look.
My guess is if I get the partial knee replacement as planned, that I can venture into these "normal" shoes by mid-July. I've been dreading the next month because I am very scared of the surgery and not enjoying my inability to take anything for the pain. At least I can console myself with the prospect of better fashion opportunities when this is all over with. And since it's going to be an expensive couple of months, it's a bit easier to rationalize two pairs of summer shoes and a top for $13.00 because I didn't feel the need to buy everything new.
