So… Last year when I saw that Birkenstock sandals were “back” I pretty much rolled my eyes and scoffed at the idea. I probably even uttered the words “there is NO way I will ever wear those again”. I don’t like to revisit many trends. I’m generally a one and done kind of a person. I have made the exception for skinny jeans, because those are a staple.
I had Birks back in the early 90’s. I actually had several pairs. They were of the earth muffin/tree hugger variety though, and I do recall sporting some wool socks with them now and again. What? I went through a hippie phase. I’m not proud, but yeah… It happened and I fully own it.
I kept seeing at lot of the Scandinavian bloggers wearing Birkenstocks with monochromatic black and/or white clothes and I really dug the look. Admitting it was pretty hard, you guys. I wanted to find some comfortable black sandals for our trip to Paris later this summer and I kept returning to the Birkenstocks. GAH. So, I gave in and ordered a pair to “try”. OK, I ordered three pairs and kept these. Go for the soft foot bed. You deserve it.
Where did I wear this? Work. I usually reserve the Birkenstocks for casual Friday, but sported them mid-week to work because I am a rebel like that.
Wearing: Top – Zara (old), Pants – Zara (old), Sandals – Birkenstock, Bag – Coach, Lips – M.A.C. (Viva Glam I Lip Glass).
