This week on Everything is Fine


Instead of stewing in our collective outrage (and fury!) over the recently-leaked Supreme Court decision regarding Roe v Wade, now seems like a good time to talk about action. Our guests today — Rebecca Hart Holder and Jen Bluestein — have spent much of their careers fighting for abortion rights and reproductive equity. Rebecca is the executive director of Reproductive Equity Now and Jen is the former managing director of NARAL Prochoice America and the current senior director of policy and advocacy at the Schusterman family philanthropies. It’s a really galvanizing and educational episode, so do tune in.

How about we check out some clog sandals?


The weather has turned positively balmy lately, which always puts me in mind of this category of footwear, which is so cute and—as I always say—provides height without pain. This crisscross-strap wedge comes in such a good, goes-with-most-everything hue.

These come in a variety of good colors, but I’m partial to the grey: again, because it’s super-versatile, and also nicely because it’s nicely subdued.

I’m seeing a lot of lower-heeled clog sandals lately, and these are cute in a retroish, 70s way.

I really dig these woven sandals, and can’t decide between the pink you see here and this more natural shade.

These have a certain Grecian appeal, and just the slightest platform.

I am crazy for the coral shade of this awesome sandal from Beklina, one of my favorite indie e-boutiques.

This T-strap pair has a Mary Jane-ish appeal.

These are such a good army green, and I like the double buckles.

The peep toe on this under $100 pair is sweet.

This fisherman’s clog from Madewell is really chic, and wearable with so much.

These open-toe mules have studs instead of staples, which I always appreciate.

And finally, these are big and high and clunky—in a good way, I think—and also perfect for a party.
