Trends I like: (or do I?) Birkenstocks ‘n socks

I am only a recent convert for wearing Birkies.
I am not a fan of thongs/flipflops, I LOATH the feeling of things between my toes.

Cue Birkies.

Once my feet got used to the shaped insole, I didn’t want to take them off!!
I received mixed feedback from my friends and family: I either got them onto the comfiest of sandals or I get the “EWWWW” when I wear them. (Yeah I am talking about you Sandra! X)

See my post here:

and here:

or just do a search on Birkenstocks on my blog. Yep. I wore them to death.


So now it is Autumn here, and this weekend is sooo cold. Is it time to put the Birkies in summer storage?

But wait.
Let me share with you what the Olsen twins are wearing:

Do I have any takers yet?

I have been known to wear socks with my sandals when I am at our van in the weekends, hoping I don’t run into anyone at the toilet blocks.

Here is my take on this trend:

What do you think?

I think I might just put my boots on before I leave my house. I am not brave enough!

    Are you channelling another family member wearing socks with your sandals????????

  2. Warmth and comfort…sounds like a winner to me. I think I’ll wait until I see it in person on someone else before I venture out too though.

  3. I’m sorry, you haven’t convinced me, but you did make me laugh.

  4. No. Just no. These pictures might make you think for a second that it’s a good idea. But it most definitely is not! But thanks for the giggle!

  5. I’m not convinced but then again I don’t do flats. Thanks for linking up at Agent Mystery Case for our blog of the month. Winner announced soon and this month’s link up starts Wednesday.
