Birkenstocks: Back From The Dead


I never thought I would see the day where I would willingly put a pair of leather and cork sandals on my feet. It all started in high school. I went to a small, private school, where Birkenstocks were one of the few shoe options we were allowed. I truly, honestly, hated them. How was I supposed to express my creative freedom if I was being forced to slap a pair of blander than sand shoes on my feet? Exactly.

Fast forward to a few months ago, I was scrolling through my Instagam and fell in love with something far worse…Tevas. Now, we aren’t just talking about any Tevas, but a pair of Teva inspired Prada sandals. Obnoxious, jewel encrusted, Prada/Tevas. Get the picture? Good. While I did not see this coming, I’m glad it did. With a 90s normcore revival happening right now, we are seeing Birkenstocks, Tevas, and every other comfortable, kill me now if I am wearing these shoe coming back to life in great ways.

Personally, I am happy to see a revival in this trend. Long, sweaty summer days are not meant for running around in binding leather sandals and five inch wedges, but we make do because we want to look good and not ruin the rest of our outfit. Now? We can surf the J.Crew site (or the Prada site if we so choose) and find ten different options that will compliment our summer looks, not crush them. I picked up an all white pair a few days ago, and will probably wear them every day until they give out.


How do you feel about the trend?

Summer Sunnies: The Warby Parker Way

Summer is all about running around outside, laying on the beach, and the carefree look that goes along with that. These days have been on my brain while I have been stuck inside due to Chiberia. Another thing I’m looking forward to? Buying new sunglasses. I’ve been stalking sites recently for a fun, new, pair of sunnies for Spring Break in a few weeks, and Warby Parker has solved my crisis. I long for the day that I can throw on a romper, flip flops, and actually need to toss sunglasses..but at this point, who isn’t?

Spring Wishlist: J.Crew

According to me, spring and summer are all about bright colors, flowing sun dresses, and over sized oxfords thrown on with shorts and leather sandals. J.Crew seems to be on the same brain wave as I am, because I could live in their whole collection once the warm weather rolls around and be completely happy. One thing that I love about J.Crew, is the quality. While it might be pricey at times, I still wear the pieces that I have from them three years ago, and mix and match them with my recent purchases. These are the pieces that I’ll be working into my spring and summer wardrobe as soon as it hits 60 degrees:
