TREND TO TRY: BIRKENSTOCKS

It’s official, the “Birk” is back… big time!  I’ve been noticing fashion editors and celebrities sporting them all over the place and  few weeks ago I confessed my desires to get a pair with this picture on Instagram.  Wow!  I had no idea how passionately people felt about how much they loved or hated them.  I immediately reached out to style contributor Cristina Facundo and we decided to tackle the topic.  We partnered with local Austin boutique Etcetera, etc to prove that while the classic style hasn’t changed, this is not your 1990’s Birkenstock and it doesn’t have to be frumpy.  I decided on the classic Arizona style in black oiled leather (word on the street is that they are selling out everywhere) and I have worn them non stop since I got them.

Scroll down for four different looks from Etcetera, etc. that I’m loving with my new Birkenstocks including details on the look and links to buy!

    You look adorable! I especially love the first look…but, Birks will always, always be a no for me (sorry!). I honestly am just baffled by this trend. I feel like the Birkenstock people must have paid a bunch of insiders to make this trend happen. When I first started seeing it make the rounds on Instagram, my brain was like “this does not compute.” I want to like them, because it seems everyone else is determined to, but I just can’t. That being said, you really could make a paper bag look adorable (so that is the upside:))
