“Instructions for living a life: Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.” ― Mary Oliver

What the what?

These fashion don’ts spotted recently at the infamous Mall of America need little commentary.


Clown socks, floods, dark sneakers??

Pajama-like outfits in public? Almost makes you long for the Juicy Couture tracksuits of the late 90s, no? Are the sweats pushed up to make the whole get-up look more intentional? If so, its not working.


And then there are these classic watch outs:


Mom-jeans, bright tennis shoes. The former can be retired, the latter should really stay in the gym. Sneakers are a viable option, but these white athletic shoes are hardly street wear.


Not technically a “don’t”, but a personal pet peeve: hiking sandals when not hiking. They seem to be made for outdoor activities.  I’m pretty sure that waiting in line at the McDonald’s in the mall food court doesn’t qualify. I don’t get why this style of shoe is so popular in Minnesota. They look kind of like sandals for men!
