Clog Mania

Trends in fashion are fun, and they change all the time. However, my opinion on the matter is that you should wear what works for you- what you're comfortable in and what makes you feel good, despite the current popularity of some styles. (Like harem pants. Not for everyone.)

Of course, there are always moments when you just can't help but pick up a trendy item at a thrift store. It's a cheap and easy way to find out if that thing works for you. All this to say that I thrifted these wooden-heeled clog wedges Saturday:

Guess what? I can barely walk in them! I shouldn't be surprised, since I'm a flats girl 99% of the time, but I just had to try. Some of my favorite bloggers pull them off beautifully, but they're just not me. I'm having a blast trying to walk around my apartment in them, though! (Pretty hilarious :) )

Some current trends I've thrifted and ended up loving, like stripes, polka-dots, fringe, boater hats and oxfords. These all fit into my tomboyish-quirky-comfy style while adding just the right amount of girliness in. Clog wedges, not so much.

I guess we all have a thrifting fail every once in awhile! Next time, I'm going to try to walk in a pair of shoes instead of just making sure they fit :)

  1. Don't worry, girl! I think most people can't walk in those!
