Bring your own Birks

Birkenstocks are throwback to high school when everyone had suede beige Birkenstocks that I wanted so desperately but my parents never got me.  Of course I'd probably be much less likely to be okay with them now having seen my high school self style them with whatever wardrobe I possessed back then.  Now they're back and better than ever, styled much more sleekly than I could have ever imagined.

I have finally jumped on the bandwagon and convinced myself that they will not look bad on me.  My short stature makes me hesitant to wear bulky flat shoes because I find that they aren't flattering on me like they are on the tall, thin models and bloggers that I end up seeing all over the blogosphere.  Time to get over my insecurities.. I refuse to pass up a trend that is also comfortable!!

These are the three colors I bought, what color(s) do you think I should keep?  What do you think about Birkenstocks coming back?

(Navy & Patent: J.Crew x Birkenstock |Black: Birkenstock)


  1. I'm going to go with either the beige or the slate gray color. Both of those seem like you'll get the most wear out of the color. A co-worker of mine just got light grey birks and she rocks them. Maybe I should buy into the trend as well??

  2. I have never seen them in patent before :o I'm inclined to say go with them because they're a bit different to the black and white everyone seems to have. Personally, I've never "gotten" the popularity of these (I guess I just don't have that ~fashion vision~) but I can definitely appreciate when others wear them well!

  3. Love Birkins!


  4. That beige colour is probably best as they will disappear on your feet! I have a pair and they are so fantastic to wear.

  5. The patent styles are so cool! Love Birkenstocks :)

    Take care,
