It’s official: after several weeks of flip-flopping between a strange obsession and abject abhorrence, I’ve been bitten by the Birkenstock bug, and decided that I’m ready to jump aboard the “ugly” shoe trend!
That being said, I’m not letting myself get too carried away — I’ve been eyeing the Birkenstock Gizeh Sandal in Antique Lace for the past couple weeks now, and I feel like they’re a happy medium between outright man-repelling and making an attempt at looking at least a LITTLE bit cute. I just placed a pair on hold at the closest retailer to my work, and I’m headed to check them out over my lunch break. And not to worry… I just got my first pedicure of the summer in preparation for this momentous footwear adventure. Stay tuned!
What do you think about the Birkenstock trend? Your feet will thank you.
p.s. — Let me know what you guys think about the new slideshow format. I’ve been toying around with new ideas for post formats and I’d love feedback from you! Do you like these, or prefer the collages like my previous style watch post on backpacks?
