30 Days of Denim – Day Nineteen

Today’s outfit is a hot mess. For a number of reasons. I’ll give you the cliffs notes:

* I may have mentioned I am VERY tired. This affected my outfit choice today.
*The shoes are apparently very polarizing.

Oh the shoes.

Here’s What I Wore:


Necklace: Target
Cardigan: Merona for Target
Tank: Old Navy
Jeans: Gap Slim Boyfriend, which are now too big and sort of making me have a weird spare tire
Shoes: DSW – some off brand that wants to be Danskos, obvs.

They are my (fake) Danskos and even though I have mad love for them, Garrett HATES these shoes. He thinks they look like frumpy, orthopedic shoes and can’t understand my desire to wear them ever. In fact I would tell you what he calls them but this is a family friendly website.


But here’s the thing, like a good pair of Chuck Taylors, I feel anxious when I don’t have a pair of Danskos in my closet. (Or the $39 knock of pair I got from DSW.) I understand they can not be worn in every situation, but sometimes they are necessary. Like today.

However when I got to work my friend Katie (Hi Katie!) was like “Dude, what’s with the clogs?” And when I told her the story I just told you she said, “Well, hey, at least they aren’t crocs.”


And that pretty much sums up how I feel about this outfit. Is it time to go to bed yet?


What did you wear today? Hopefully not Crocs.

Join the group and play a little show and tell.

    I DID wear crocs!

    Just kidding, I’ve actually never owned crocs. I did wear a scuffed and way past their prime pair of brown flats, though. I need to get rid of them.

    I hate crocs. I like the IDEA of clogs but I think they look terrible on me and don’t go with any of my clothes. I compromised and bought Dansko sandals which are a dream to wear where you’re on your feet a lot (like when I am working an event). Why can’t comfortable shoes also be sexy?!

    I like your shoes. They are the sexiest shoes I’ve ever seen, but sometimes you just really need something comfy. And that’s alright with me. Of course maybe I’m not the perfect person to ask, since my life is all about comfy. As a work from home Mom my whole closet screams comfy.

    I wear Danskos to work every day… but I work in a hospital. 😉 It’s like scrubs + Danskos = love, but I kinda get caught off guard when I see people wearing them out in real life!

    I love my Danskos in the winter. Puddle splashing ahoy! But, I have ‘dansko’ jeans that are longer and cover up more of the body. Mike hates my clogs too. TOO BAD.

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
