Birkenstock Love

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ast year, I was mad for Saltwater sandals ( I still am)- the brighter, the better. But this year, a change is afoot! The very shoes my sisters and I would file under Grandma-Ware has become my most coveted item this summer. I LOVE YOU DOUBLE STRAP ARIZONA BIRKENSTOCKS! I’ve been pinning and googling these sandals in black like a comfort shoe demon. My flat and wide Hobbit feet mean the majority of heels are of no use to me…but this shoe trend I can get on board with.

I mean…look at how chic and unbelievably cool Laura from Ascot Friday makes them look:


I wish I could look this easy breezy every day. Especially when sitting on asphalt with a matching pal. Here are the pin worthy pics I’ve been using for inspiration to feed my addiction:

OBSESSED WITH GRANDMA SHOES. I don’t even care- they exude the laid back chic I only dream of emulating. I admit, paying £65 for a pair of sandals sounds crazy, so I cheated and got a pair on Amazon instead- I used this seller. My black beauties are due next week *rubs hands with glee* My friend Luan is going to be furious her favourite sandals are being street style snapped left, right and centre.

What do you think about Birkenstocks? Are you giving them a wide berth or ,like me, stashing pairs under the bed?

  1. I’m just not sure I can get on with this new trend. I mean, they’re BIRKENSTOCKS! Comfortable as they may be, in my mind they still stand for frump. I’m sorry, it’s just how I feel haha! x


  2. I also think about to buy a pair of Birkenstocks. It´s really crazy, that they have become a trend, because even my father is wearing them for years now!
