With Mom's wedding out of the way and the happy couple off on their honeymoon, my attention turns to preparing in earnest for my excellent European adventure which begins two weeks from tomorrow. I have promised my skeptical spouse that I will faithfully adhere to Rick Steve's packing strategy and get 14 days worth of clothes, accessories and, yes, shoes into one carry-on bag. (Steve says pack light and prepare to do laundry, which I always enjoy - oddly enough - while traveling.) Enter these Franco Sarto Cherie sandals in Platino. Wouldn't they be the bee's knees to dance in on the swanky Marina? "Sure, but think of the space they'll take up in your suitcase," says Mr. Buzzkill. "So? I'll leave my workout shoes at home," I counter. "These'll do fine on the treadmill."
