Man Repelling and Trending: Birkenstocks

I'm sorry but I am going to have to jump on the bandwagon.  It's not often that fashion is as comfy as this so forgive me!! The question is do I go for the originals here or the cute platform version Topshop have come up with here. Hmmmmm....


  1. I ordered a black pair from Zalando for half price the other day and can't wait for the sun to come out and to wear them! <3 xx

  2. As a German I'm rejoicing that something I've worn all my life is finally acceptable as trendy! It makes me smile seeing British people wearing them. I'd really recommend the original, they're made in German and are so good for your feet trust me!

    1. I love how cliché this sounds, but you're right. Forever Germans have been blamed for wearing those, especially with socks, to top it off. Now all of a sudden it's the latest thing in fashion scene.
      Back atcha, I'd say, right back atcha.
      Sincerely, another triumphing German xx

  3. I'd love to own a pair! I have my eyes on the original Birks but also the ones from Zara. x

  4. Totally on the bandwagon now, these pics are gorgeous xx

  5. yes get em both!
    loving this trend x

  6. Actually I don't really like them but I want a pair and I can't tell you why! I just love it, but hate it at the same time :D

  7. Hahah I felt like this too by liking them. Call me trendy but I think they look cool!

  8. I'm the same as well! Don't know whether to choose between the black or the white ones but my friends are shaking their heads at my Birkenstock obsession. I'm determined to get a pair.

  9. I love all your outfit inspiration, i like the black ones (without socks)

  10. I am so wanting a pair of these!! Wasn't expecting these to become so mainstream but love 'em!! <3

    Great blog :)


  11. I hated them at first, but I can feel myself slowly starting to come over to the birkenstock side *sigh* isn't that how it always happens?

    If you're still looking for a pair Zara has some pretty amaze ones in white and in black. I'm thinking about getting the black. I would like both, but at that price, I'll stick with one haha.
