Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Let's talk about Birkenstocks

Let's talk about Birkenstocks

4:00 AM

If you couldn't tell I wasn't really prepared for this picture, I was trying to tell mommy to watch out because a car was backing out haha.

Here's a nice little blooper.  The wind is crazy at Ikea, probably because it's located right next to an airport.

Tank:  Ralph Lauren // Pants:  DKNY (really old) // Sandals:  Birkenstock (old)

The Birkenstock trend has blown up over the past year or so.  I’m personally extremely happy about this because I have been wearing them since I was a little girl and we got my first pair when we were in Florida.  I believe I was 4.  So needless to say I’ve been wearing them for over 20 years.  I’ve been made fun of for wearing them but back when I worked in retail they were actually very helpful.  Birkenstocks are actually designed to help with any pains that you might be having.  I wore them because I have knee problems that were causing back problems and I’m flat footed.  So when I bought my first pair of Birkenstocks with my own money a couple of years ago I got made fun of so bad.  I didn’t care because they were saving my knees and back.  Then all of the sudden last year I see all of the bigger bloggers wearing them all the time.  It was crazy!  I was super excited that this was a trend, because now I wouldn’t be that weirdo wearing Birkenstocks by myself.  Not that I cared, but I did get made fun of a lot.

I also like wearing them because it reminds me of Poland.  Since Birkenstocks are European it’s more normal to wear them over there rather than here in the states.  My mom also has a few pairs along with my dad.  I think my dad still has his original pair that he got even before I was born.  The one thing that I do love is that now that they are trending, Birkenstock has come out with so many more options to chose from with colors and patterns, which I have shown below.  Before it was pretty generic but now they have metallics, and all of these other colors.  I personally want the patent leather black ones and maybe a pair of pink ones.  I truly love Birkenstock and I do highly recommend them.  NO I did not get paid to say that this is not a review post, it’s just my own opinion from experience. 

Oh, and as you can see I went to Ikea this day.  We really wanted Swedish meatballs and I got some more furniture for my room yay!

Also, today is the little doggy's birthday!  Happy 10th birthday Kuba!
