You know how there are certain things in life that everyone is just supposed to like? A certain movie, book, fashion trend, etc.? And while most well-loved-by-the-masses things aren’t so bad, there’s always that weird movie that wins tons of awards and while all your friends discuss how “brilliant” it is, you’re thinking about how much you hated it.
It’s the same with fashion. Something’s been “in” for years and yet, you think it’s ridiculous. We’ve all got that one thing (or, maybe a few things) it seems everyone loves but that we just do not like.
I’m about to make some enemies, I’m sure. But, here goes: I don’t like wedges.
Scratch that. I hate wedges.
I think they’re clunky and awful and distract from a perfectly good outfit. However, I get that a lot, and I mean A LOT of people love them (and you may be one of them!) And honestly, I have no issues if you love them!
And while I’ve never tried to persuade clients or friends from buying them, I’m more likely to wear a pair of cowboy boots than wear a pair of wedges, and that’s really saying something.
I (kind of) get why people like them. You get the height with out the discomfort of sky-high heels. They have some cute designs and well, they’re trendy, especially in the spring and summer months. Just not my thing. But I still like you if they’re yours. :)
So now that I’ve offended all the wedge-loving (and cowboy boot-loving) among you with what you won’t find in my closet, tell me, what trendy, “loved by all” clothing item do you HATE? Share, please!

Cold shoulder tops. What’s the point?
Leggings. I’ve said it a million times THEY AREN’T PANTS! Lol!
You won´t find in my closet cloggs!No matter how confty they are!
Confession– I have the Croc ballet flats… And I love them. Haha I wear them when I am shooting an all day wedding and they are amazing… Especially with he screw in my foot! Haha But, on the list of things I dislike– I’m thinking women’s overalls and those wedges that look like sneakers!
I didn’t even know they made ballet flats, I had to look them up! And I think those pass my test, so we can still be friends. :) And yes, I read another blogger’s post the other day talking about how overalls were universally flattering and I thought, “In what universe?!”
Although I can’t completely agree with the wedge hate… I do understand it! There are some awful, clunky shoes out there. However, I have a few super cute and simple (and not sky high) wedges that I adore! The one thing you’ll never find in my closet…Crocs.
Ugh… I just can’t. I know some people love and swear by them…but I am NOT one of those people! Ha!
Oh, same here. Crocs are THE WORST. I’d gladly wear a pair of wedges rather than wear those!
I can not stand the Birkenstock Sandals. I think they are the ugliest shoes ever.
Ooh, yes, that’s another one! I agree!
