When Comfort & Fashion Collide

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 

I'm going to go ahead and admit it, I caved and got Birkenstocks. I had been thinking about doing it for about a year, and eventually something in me said "just try it." At first I thought I was too short to handle the enormity of these shoes, didn't have long enough legs to rock them and made fun of my hippie husband too many times for wearing them to be able to join the birky-crew. I did come up with a few rules to follow though, so if you are a five footer like me and maybe even pregnant read on (I'll probably also post an outfit wearing them sooner or later so you can all judge whether I rock them or not).

I think in general, these rules tend to work, no matter your body type. Seeing as they are a chunkier shoe, I say go for loose and leggy outfits or super fitted pants. If you think you can manage, slouchy yet tapered pants seem to work too.

Color wise, go for whatever is you. I found that I was most attracted to the black patent and gold (I went for gold since Nordstrom was all sold out of the black patent). The white is a bit geriatric to me, but every time I see them on other people I think they look fresh and fun.

Anyways, if comfort and fashion collide, why not try it out?

Here are some Birks I'm liking right now:
