Out of all the fashion blogs I follow, I have yet to see a single one of them sport a pair of Uggs in an outfit post. I have even heard some bloggers actually call Uggs, well, Ugly.
While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I think Uggs are comfy, warm and adorable when worn appropriately. That being said, here are a few rules to stick by when wearing Uggs or Ugg-like boots:
1. Please, I beg you, DO NOT wear Uggs with Nike running shorts. Isn't the point of Uggs to stay warm? Hey, Sorority Sister, you can't be warm in those short sport shorts.
2. Uggs + PJ Pants = OK FOR AT HOME ONLY! If I see you at the gas station in Uggs and PJ pants, I hope it's because you're on your way to the hospital to give birth. Otherwise, not ok ladies. Not ok.
And actually, if you're on the way to the hospital to give birth, why are you stopping at a gas station??
3. Uggs are casual boots, so keep the rest of your outfit casual. Uggs and skinny jeans or flares look cute with a tee and messy hair. Uggs + dresses? Probably not ok unless you're wearing tights.
My boots are not Uggs, because I think the actual Ugg brand is overpriced for what the boot actually is. A rubber sole with suede outer lining and shearling inside. You can't even wear these boots in the snow or you'll ruin them. Rain? Nope, can't wear em' in the rain either or they'll get all kinds of messed up.

What do you think of Uggs?
Disclaimer: It's ok if you wear Uggs and Nike shorts. I'll still accept you and call you friend, just don't wear it around me unless you want to be made fun of :)
