The other day it was raining, I had some errands to run, and I found myself with a dilemma. I didn't feel like dressing, decided to stay in sweats, and was left with minimal shoe options.
When I "dress", it's either heels or slouchy flat boots, depending on the occasion. But when it comes to dressing down, what's a girl to do? I hate sneakers. I own ONE pair, and never wear them...IMO, they're an abomination.
Rummaging through my closet for a solution I came across two old pairs of Uggs, and I got to thinking about how badly I had wanted them. I got two pairs a few years ago-- one black, one sand. I couldn't justify the price, so I begged and begged for them as Christmas presents. I practically LIVED in the sand pair (the black ones still look new...in retrospect, not the best color choice.)
Fast forward to the present, and I wouldn't be caught dead in them. In fact, I threw them on with my STEWIE GRIFFIN pajama pants to run to Dunkin Donuts yesterday morning, and THEY were the part of my outfit I was most embarrassed about. LOL.
And then I realized that the Ugg brand is still alive and kicking, which means that some of you ARE wearing them. So... time to fess up:
To UGG or not to UGG?
If you're like me, and would sooner die than be seen in these boots, I ask you: What alternatives do we have? Granted, I probably shouldn't be running around in pajama pants (don't worry, I opted for drive-thru), or worrying about viable shoe options to match said pants...but I can't justify getting completely dressed just to run for coffee. Sneakers are not an option for me. Rain boots would just make me look crazy. Short of going barefoot, what's a good, lazy day alternative?
