the great birkenstock debate




Blazer: Helmut Lang; Camisole: Mason (love the dress version here); Jeans: Gap via Regent Tweet; Sandals: Birkenstocks; Necklace: Givenchy; Watch: Daniel Wellington; Wallet: Emerson Fry; Sunglasses: Coach (similar style here)

This outfit is something I'd probably joke with my coworkers about as being incredibly video conference friendly. Business up top, beyond casual on bottom (and no one in your meeting has to be the wiser of it!). Speaking of beyond casual, these Birkenstocks and I are getting along swimmingly at the moment. Albeit, I do feel like I'm kinda wearing mini boats on my feet and have gotten my fair share of the"Oh, Birkenstocks? Really?" raised eyebrow look at work -- but let me tell you, a fleeting trend has never felt so darn comfortable! So I'll take it. 

Have you guys tried out Birkenstocks yet? Any styling tips?

  10. Video conference ready is chic. And the birks are hard to resist. And they're stylish too.

  12. Try the Madrids! They're my favourite style of Birks, a little more dainty and dare I say, chic! I have many colours but I'm really loving Antique Brown for the Summer....they're a neutral tan shade, weathered looking and really lovely.

  13. I have been wearing birks for a few years now before they were considered "hip"! They are only comfy and if you search they come in all sorts of different styles and colours!

  23. Great look! Birks are the best, although not super fashion forward they are a staple that will never really go out of style and are so comfy! I love wearing them with maxis, denim shorts & cropped broken in khakis.
