It’s like “No White” after Labor Day, right?

So I’m sure that most of you have heard this “rule”…

You can’t wear white after Labor Day

This is in reference to white pants/shoes/shorts/skirts, not shirts. From what I assume, this is because these items tend to give off a ‘summery’ look that can seem inappropriate during the Fall/Winter months. Which I can understand, because in most cases it’s true. But rules are meant to be broken right? So people do it all the time. And I’m all for it! I love white and there are many-a-cute white outfits. As long as it’s tasteful and cute, do what you do! Even Stacy & Clinton agree (according to a sign pictured in the intro), that white IS permitted after Labor day.

I think there’s a different rule that needs to be put into effect, um, Now.

No Uggs after the first day of Spring!

Okay, first of all, it has taken me quite some time to get used to this whole “Uggs” thing. I have mixed feelings. I understand that they keep your feet warm, and are apparently really comfortable. In the cold, miserable, winter months, I am all for a shoe that is warm and comfortable. No, I don’t own Uggs, and never plan on it. But I see the logic. I gotcha.

Here’s what I will Never understand. Uggs + Leggings. Uggs + Mini-skirts.

These two combos have thrown all logic out the window. Why try to keep your feet warm if the rest of your body is freezing? Or, if it’s warm enough to bust out this outfit, you don’t need boots!! And you look a little ridiculous. Just so you know.

The high today was around 50º, and it was sunny (yes!). So, basically, it was a beautiful spring day. Want to know what looks ridiculous when it’s beautiful and springy and sunny? Ugg Boots. Your feet clearly don’t need them. Give it up. The “Ugg” season is over. Pack them up with the winter wardrobe and move on. In fact, maybe you have some white shoes you’ve been wanting to wear? And by shoes, I mean not-boots. That’d be great. I look forward to seeing them.

Oh, and did anybody else hear that “jellies” are coming back?!?! I’m speechless.

((Update: Apparently I have offended the masses. Just to clear it up, I have no problem with Ugg boots themselves. I just think they look winter-ish, and aren’t appropriate for Spring. Take it as you will. Oh, and they really shouldn’t be worn with mini skirts. I think we can all agree on that, right? Ehhhh. Do what ya do. ))



  1. I agree, Uggs + mini skirts is ridonkulous…ANY time of the year. Being that I work on a college campus, I’ve seen this sin far too many times. PS- LOVE Stacy and Clinton!

  2. Ahhhhhh jellies!!!!! (omgomgomgomgomg, I just can’t believe it)

    So… uggs. I sort of have a love love relationship with them. It’s so funny because as I sat down to read your post on Thursday (and didn’t get to comment) I just got back from sushi with friends wearing my long cardigan, scarf, cuffed jeans and uggs! 😉

    Now, I love uggs, uggs when it’s cold, ugg’s when you ski- ugg’s from October- April.. but after April they sort of have an expiration date… and so heinous paired with mini skirts and tops… like… no! I agree!!! But, I do heart my uggs when the weather is freezing. I have four pairs, sand, gray, brown and the furry ones (it’s sad really).

    So, since April is fast approaching, I feel as though I busted out my Uggs for one last wear this week (plus it is still soooooooooooooo cold)! 🙂 I know Stacy & Clinton would say no UGGS ever, but I still heart them and can’t seem to break my love affair with them…. I think when I am old and gray I will still love them… it’s like a warm fuzzy cloud for your foot to live in, and with the right (and not mini) outfit, it can be a cute look— “ski bunnyish” is the style I have deemed uggs to be…

    wow- this was long.
    can you tell how much I love my uggs?

  4. No Uggs after the first day of spring! What if you live in Montana and its still snowing in May? I agree that you really shouldn’t be wearing Uggs in the summer, Uggs are a fashion to be worn from October-May. I wouldn’t agree though that you can’t wear Uggs with a skirt and leggings. I think that that fashion is very cute, Uggs with skinny jeans is cuter, but the leggings and a skirt work to. As for the whole thing of won’t you be really cold if you wear Uggs with leggings, most of the heat escapes from your body through your head and your feet. So I am sure its keeping your body warmer in those first few chilly weeks of spring:)

  5. I am with you 100% on the uggs or is it ughs? On the other hand the logic behind the mini skirt and ughs? is impeccable. follow me here: mini skirt – short, breezy, wind up your panties…, flirty…. ughs- tall, clunky, ughlee, uggly, warm and medieval invader look. put them together and what do you get? A girl with warm feet, cold bum. sexy vs. not sexy, flirty vs. invader chic, cute vs. ugly, in summation – ying yang, balance I vote for the mini skirts with everything, even ughs. No I don’t expect much of a following here.

  7. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be interesting to read through content from other writers and use something from their web sites.
