Birkenstocks haven taken this summer by storm and I don't hate it although I wish had the foresight to anticipate them being stylish. A few years back, a parent at the school I worked at gifted me a pair. Her sister worked for the company designing straps and had given her a pair that didn't fit and I gladly took them off her hands. When I made the move cross country, I decided that I didn't wear them enough to a) take up any precious luggage room b) withstand anymore of Aaron's "really? Birkenstocks?" look. And now here we are just a few years later and I'm shopping for a new pair and Aaron is no longer surprised by anything I wear. Really though, flats that are comfortable and chic at the same time? What's not to love?

Birkenstocks-- they're not just for your strange crunchy uncle anymore.


  1. I am right there with you about wishing I had gotten on this Birkenstock trend earlier. I have been considering getting a pair all week, but I just cant decide what color, natural, black or maybe even white.
    Love this whole look you pulled together here, jean shorts and a striped tee, so perfect for summer!

  2. I'm really not sure how I feel about the Birkenstock trend just yet. On one hand, they look super comfortable, but on the other, I just don't know if I like the straps/style. I do, however, love every single other item in this outfit! I mean, a reversible tote? I will definitely be checking out that link :)
