Swedish Hasbeens: Zip It Emy

Let’s talk clogs. Let’s really explore them. Let’s understand why they’re made of wood. Jokes! There’s no point in exploring clogs but wearing them in boot form is a completely different story. Wear this pair of Swedish Hasbeens everywhere. Wear them with jeans. Wear them with leggings. Wear them with a mini skirt. Maybe avoid the clog + maxi skirt look. That’s not great. It’s not horrible but it’s not that appealing, you know?

These Jordan de Ruiter Ariana Shorts are ridiculous (in a good way). Are they underwear? Are they a bathing suit bottom? Are they booty shorts? Who cares. They’re made in Canada and they’re sexy as eff.

Whenever that may be since this country is at the mercy of Mother Nature.
