I clearly remember my first pair of clogs. I had wanted them for ages and when I finally got them I had a whole order of clothes to pair them with. I wore them through blisters and on to callouses. I continued to wear them even though they made me trip all the time. That was 1993.
These days I’m not as certain about clogs, in part because you have to be careful which kinds you buy in order to not spend weeks wearing them in, and also because there are just so many damn ugly styles out there. (Versions so ugly they take a perfectly cute outfit and ruin it with troll feet.) That said, when they are done right, they can be damn adorable (and comfortable) and recent styles tend to be much more creative than those of the 90s!
Here are seven styles I’m digging…

The Chunky High Heel Clog: Jeffrey Campbell Charlie Clogs, $150 at Singer22
A couple weekends ago I saw a mom pushing her child in a stroller wearing the most fashion-forward yet low-key outfit I’d ever seen on a mom. I instantly wished that I could be so stylish, especially since I don’t have a child to use as my excuse for wanting to wear sweatpants everywhere. Here is a recreation…

There’s nothing better than a casual summer outfit for reading in the park or taking a leisurely stroll through San Francisco. Summer days here can be inconsistent-while one area is a hot, another may be cold, hence the need for long sleeves and/or layering. I love the comfort and ease of this outfit. I may have to purchase the whole lot!

For a breezy yet sunny summer day, I enjoy wearing long sleeves with shorts, especially in San Francisco where your legs heat up from walking up all the steep hills! This outfit is colorful & playful yet sophisticated & not over the top. I love the contrast of a flouncy blouse paired with tailored shorts.
