What are ghillies?
a. a man or boy who attends someone on a hunting or fishing expedition
b. a type of shoe with laces along the instep and no tongue, especially those used for Scottish country dancing
c. a red fresh water fish
d. both a and b are correct
The correct answer is…
D! Sooooo apparently lace up Scottish shoes are called ghillies! I always knew a gillie, or ghillie, was a camouflage type suit, so when I was looking at these TopShop flats and saw the term ghillie I was trying to figure out WHY. My search for ghillie flats resulted in a ton of flat and high heeled options, so then I realized ghillies must be some kind of lace-up shoe. Why did it take me 30 years to learn the name of Scottish dancing shoes?!

These plaid midi skirts are also super cute; I’d have to get the slit sewed up, though. This olive plaid midi is also adorable.
