What is wrong with the image above? (Besides the fact you can almost see the girl's entire butt).

Don't know? Let me help you out.

Notice the short short short denim skirt. Seeing an article such as this usually indicates an image of warm weather, correct? Even the setting of the photo indicates spring/summer weather. Ok?

Now, notice the choice of footwear. Those would be none other than a pair of UGGs. For those who don't know (or have been living under a rock for the past 5 years), UGGs are a sheepskin boot that has become popular within the last half-decade or so. Sheepskin is incredibly comfortable and warm. Yea...warm. Do you see where I am going with this?

I understand that as spring is starting to take shape around us, the temperature is rising, yet still isn't exactly summer time heat. I get it. I also get the battle in which you endure everyday when it comes to deciding what to wear during this weather-confusing time of year. I struggle, myself.

But why...WHY...must girls keep repeating this monstrosity of a "look". It makes you not only LOOK confused, but you also look a bit insane. It makes people think, "so it's warm enough to wear a teenie tiny mini denim skirt, but your feet are going to be INCREDIBLY COLD?!??!" Not exactly the look I'm sure most girls are going for.

I get that UGGs are a HUGE trend. I, myself, own a pair and love them. But for crying out loud, wear them with pants!! Tuck them, untuck them, whatever!! They don't belong beneath anything that exposes your leg.

Why, you may ask? It's easy. Ladies, what are men, especially, always obsessing over as the temperature rises about our bodies, other than bathing suit season? LEG EXPOSURE. Now think about it some more: wearing short skirts during warm weather is definitely a do for many girls. And yes they make your legs usually look wonderful, but why would you pair this leg flattering look with something that hits you at the WIDEST part of your knee?! Also, the way that the boot cuts your exposed leg into a section makes your legs look stumpy! You want to elongate your legs.

I would personally suggest a cute pair of open toe heels or a trendy flats, but even flip flops are a better choice than UGGs.

Final thought: Short Skirts + UGGs = Stumpy Legs and Makes You Look Somewhat Crazy. Keep the UGGs ready for fall and winter, and you're all set.

Um, if you would have any sort of knowledge about Uggs or any other sheepskin boots, you'd know that sheepskin is designed to keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Before judging someone for what they wear, maybe you should try to educate yourself on the subject before knocking someone or something out.

Actually, I did know that. Regardless of the fact that they can cool your feet, they are boots. It looks bad, it makes your legs look short and it kind of makes you look trashy. You can have your own opinion, but to comment on something I wrote 2 years ago seems a little odd. Finally, I hate on Uggs because of the fact they are made of sheepskin and I believe in animal rights. So I do know a thing or two, and if you don't like what I write, don't visit my blog.
