Is Ugly In?

When I first starting seeing Birkenstocks popping up on some of the most fashionable, I was shocked!  These simple, old-school sandals were making a comeback?  It couldn’t be.  They are ugly!  I’m used to seeing them on dads who have no sense of style whatsoever.  What was going on in the fashion world?  Who lost their mind and set off this ugly trend?  BUT then —- I started seeing how Birkenstocks were being worn and what they were being paired with. In a way, they almost brought an entire ensemble together in a comfy and minimalist way.  (And let’s be honest, the highest of fashion trends are usually a bit “ugly” so it’s obvious this footwear was bound to pop up sooner or later.)

Will I actually end up trying this trend?  Let’s just say it’s going to take a lot to pry my gladiator sandals out of my hands and switch over to these grandpa simple shoes.  What are your thoughts on Birkenstocks making a comeback?

Particularly Pleasant Printed Pumps

While our choice of footwear is usually an after-thought to the main event, our outfit, fashionistas everywhere are rethinking this age-old procedure of getting ready thanks to printed pumps.  These pumps are quickly becoming the spotlight of the entire ensemble due to the crazy prints and patterns they come in, as well as a plethora of colors.  So what about the rest of the outfit?  Keep it fairly simple or mix prints!  Just remember, next time you go to build your outfit for the day, start from the bottom up!
