Yup. Birks are back. AKA. The originator of the "fugly sandal". Good news is that we're sporting them in fresher ways that exclude anything to do with cargo shorts and bootcut jeans-- middle school anyone? I don't mind the thong Birkenstocks but the Arizona Two Straps are my favs (especially in white)! They are the perfect summer shoe to pair with any breezy dress or your favorite cutoffs and striped tee, my ultimate go-to. One thing I love is how they can really juxtapose your outfit. Making girly dresses a bit more tomboy and short shorts a bit more casual (and without any exposure please :))

PS: These shorts are another Goodwill snag created from boy's jeans! If you have a smaller waist, the boys section is always great because the jeans end up high-waisted and loose in the thigh. Thinking a tutorial is needed for the next pair!
