Recently, I’ve been asked my opinion on a couple different topics, so I’m going to combine them into one post.   Because you know I do have opinions!

First up, wedges.  Wedges have been back for several years now, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere (yay!).  I really had to warm up to the style, as I was convinced wedges were always clunky and un-feminine.  And they certainly sometimes can be.  But, they are also a perfect summer shoe, as they highlight those calf muscles like a heel, but are much easier to wear to backyard picnics – no sinking into the grass.  Espadrilles, the hemp rope look, are my favorite type of wedge and probably the least likely to be too heavy.  While wedges can be worn with pants, as in my outfit below, they really look best with a flowy skirt or dress.

I also heard a rumor that clogs were making a comeback.  My opinion on that?  No.

Next up is Lilly Pulitzer, favorite of sorority girls and Boca Raton retirees.  One of my longest running friends, Beth, lives in Florida and asked what I thought.  Honestly, I never had thought much about Lilly.  She’s not really in my price bracket, and I’m in neither of the aforementioned demographic groups.  However, after looking over her website a little bit more, I do really like the clothes.  They’re bright and colorful and feminine (so, pretty much everything I love in clothing).  If I were a bit wealthier, maybe I would indulge.  In the meantime, I just try to emulate her style by putting on every color in the rainbow at one time.
