Birkenstocks


If you talked to me two days ago (literally), I would've told you I thought Birkenstocks were peasant shoes and made people look like followers of Jesus... not that that's necessarily a bad thing, I just don't consider it a very fashion-forward move. Talk to me now, and I am obsessed. My dad and brother have a pair of Birkenstocks and my dad is kind of addicted. He literally told me he believes everyone should own a pair. 

Story time: We went shopping on Tuesday night and I tried on a bunch of regular styles at a store. Think two strap in shades of brown, and the Mayari in more shades of brown. The lady working at the store was sporting the Mayari's, but before I noticed that I accidentally told my dad that I thought they were hideous and I felt like a peasant who was heading into the wilderness to pick grapes. Um, I sincerely apologize for saying that. I think she thought I was insane! I ended up leaving the store all frustrated because I really wanted a pair to change into for after field hockey practices and such, but I just couldn't swing the peasant shoe look. 5 minutes later you could find me in another store carrying Birkenstocks, and the day is saved. Sitting on the shelf is a beautiful pair of silver Arizona Birkenstocks.

Long story short, I ended up falling in love with the silver pair. I'm kind of obsessed.. they are really casual but also super chill and I feel like I'll be able to work them into some regular outfits (maybe... we'll see). Not to mention, metallic birks are all the rage right now... Shop more below!



What do you think of Birkenstocks? Do you have a pair?

  2. I love the post, and you're seriously tempting me to want to give in, but I'm trying so hard to stand my ground. I mean, if Fran can wear them, so can I, right? Hmmm we'll see, but it's doubtful.

  3. I loved this post! Your writing always makes me laugh! I wrote a post about birkenstocks the other day, and I think I'm going to pick a pair up as well!!! I like the black Arizonas, but the silver is adorable.

  4. I used to hate Birks! My dad used to wear them when he was young. Everyone at my university wore them too, and I couldn't understand why anyone thought they were a good idea. Now I've crossed over and am dying to get a pair!

  5. I'm still not sure how I feel about birkenstocks... I'm with you on the peasant shoes thing. However, I was laughing out loud throughout this whole post and your insta wearing them was perfect!

  6. There's something so darn comfy about Birkenstocks - I used to wear them on holiday all the time! I bought a pair of the clog-type ones for my internship (I work at a hospital) last summer but they were so uncomfy! I've never had that with Birkenstocks before! Your silver ones are so cute!
