How to Break In Clogs

My shoe of choice is not always the most comfortable to break in, especially in a walking city like Manhattan. I have been too eager on multiple occasions after receiving a new pair of clogs, thinking to myself, "this time it won't be thaaaat bad..." After about my tenth pair of clogs (and lots of band-aids!) I have learned some tips and tricks to speed along the process and thought it would be helpful to share my easy three step process here. Before I even take a new pair of clogs out for a test run, I make sure to follow these steps. The last few pairs I have broken in this way have left me with what feels like clogs I have been wearing for a few weeks... and everyone who loves these wooden sole shoes like me knows, broken in clogs are THE most comfortable! Simply take a moist towel and dampen the inside on the toe box area and any edges that feel like they will rub your foot. Then put on a pair of socks, not too thick as you don't want to over stretch the leather. Wear your new clogs around the house for an hour or two. Slip the pair of clogs on without the socks to check how they feel, repeat the steps until you feel comfortable enough to take them out! Et voila, no need to grab a pack of band-aids for this pair!

How To Style Swedish Hasbeens

It is no surprise that I am a Swedish Hasbeens fanatic, I just can't seem to stop collecting them! I wear them year round... on their own in the Summer with little dresses and rompers, and when it gets chilly I love to wear my Hasbeens with tights and socks. Their chunky wood soles are perfect for rain and snow, and they are honestly my most comfortable shoes for walking around in... which I do a lot of. To see how I styled some of my favorite Swedish Hasbeens visit my post where I am wearing my Peep Toe High in Natural with a silk nautical romper. I also love my Peep Toe High in Black where I am wearing them with a white eyelet dress or my Summer time outfit with a crochet top and eyelet culottes. I also love my Braided Sky High in Gold for a fancier aesthetic. My favorite way to wear my Hasbeens in the Fall and Winter is with socks, see how I styled my Savannah High in Khaki Green and Peep Toe High in Black this way.
