birkenstocks are back?

Apparently the newest fashion trend to be resurrected from the depths of the list of fashion no-no's is Birkenstocks. They were the shoes that you had to have during eighth grade and freshman year, so much so that I vividly remember taking them off outside of the gymnastics gym during freshman year gym class, only to be utterly confused at the end of class as to which pair were mine. Every girl had the same exact classic pair of clogs, varying only slightly in different shades of taupey-brown. In fact, I still have my well-loved pair tucked away in my room at my parents' house.




Fast forward eight years, and the boring Birkenstock has gotten quite the update, switching out neutrals for floral accents and closed-toed clogs for sandals. There's no doubt that these shoes are more fashion forward these days, but I'm still not sure that I'll be running to the store anytime soon to pick up a pair.

What do you think? Are you buying into this "new" trend?

With Love,

  2. I love my birkenstocks! They were never a trend for me. They have been my go sandals to for light hiking and walks for well over ten years now. I could never get used to the clogs though--they'd always fall off my feet.
