Now that it appears spring may actually be here I feel compelled to share some fashions that I personally find wrong. Granted, I am no fashion guru, but sometimes you don't have to be to see what is wrong with what someone is wearing. At times I wonder if these people look in the mirror before they left the house :) Please keep in mind, this is merely my opinions, not meant to offend anyone!


1. Socks with sandals...really? Sandals are for letting your feet feel the breeze on a warm day, so the socks kind of negate that.
2. Knee length shorts worn with knee high socks. Basically the same reasoning as sandals and socks.
3. "Daisy Duke" shorts. No one wants to see your rear-end sticking out of your shorts. The only kind of men you will attract by wearing these shorts are sleaze balls. A real man would prefer you leave a little something for him to imagine and discover later, in privacy.
4. Shorts worn with a jacket or long sleeve shirt. If it is chilly enough that you need a long sleeve shirt or a jacket then it is too chilly for shorts.
5. Skin tight jeans and/or tank tops on a "voluptuous" woman. The only thing you are showing off is the fact that you are apparently incapable of buying clothes in the correct size.
6. Cowboy boots worn with shorts. It is not sexy, it is not a "country look"...believe me, I live in the country and that is not how you dress to work on a farm.
7. Cleavage. Just because it is warm doesn't mean you can start wearing your low cut shirts without a tank top or cami underneath. It is not sexy, it is trashy. Please learn the difference.
8. Colored underwear under white pants. Yes it is good that you are wearing underwear, but I don't need to see proof of that fact.
9. Leggings are adorable, but only when worn under a skirt or long t-shirt. Leggings are not meant to be worn with an average length shirt, no matter how thin you are.
10. Swimsuits worn anywhere but the beach/pool. Unless you are a child, wearing your bikini top with shorts to the local store is just weird. Take the time to throw a t-shirt on.

So that is my list of "don't do" for spring and summer. I am sure my opinions won't make a difference to anyone, but I felt compelled to share them anyway :p Feel free to add to my list, or criticize as necessary :)

    I agree with everyone of your fashion no-no's except I have been guilty of wearing shorts with a sweatshirt. A fashion statement I would like to see go away is the kids that wear the crotch of their jeans at their knees. I also hate seeing your thong sticking out of the top of the low rise jeans. I don't want to see your underwear and one of these days I am going to ask how they keep that string from running up their butt. Also pull up your pants the only cute butt crack is on a 2 year old.

    If I'm walking behind you and your backpack is covering up all your clothes, you're not wearing enough of them.

    I have also been guilty of the sweatshirt and shorts or capris look! Here's one that bugs me .... pajama pants worn as regular pants out in public. There's a woman I see just about everyday at school in the morning dropping off her kids and she's wearing pajama pants. Ok, didn't take the time to get dressed ... but I see her again in the afternoon and she's still wearing her pajama pants!! I have a neighbor who also does this, just about every time I see her she's wearing fleece camouflage pajama pants. How long does it take to throw on a pair of jeans people??

    Pajama pants are bad enough, but I have seen them with slippers even! Hello people, you are in Wal-Mart, not bed!
