Summer Style: Birkenstocks

maxi dress

I feel like I should start this post with something like, "What the...? Birkenstocks are back?!" But to be honest, I don't know if they've ever really left. I mean, I've spotted tons of people wearing these over the years since their craze in the 90s, but I've never really had a thought about them either way. Unless they were wearing them with socks. Then maybe I had a thought or two. (Who am I kidding...I wear socks with sandals to water my flowers out front more times than not, so who am I to judge?).

Anyway, I first spotted Jessica Alba wearing the classic two-strap style in this pic last month, and then I saw this pic of Hilary Duff wearing an updated style a few weeks ago. Finally, when I saw Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen wearing them here (with socks, no less!), I knew they were here to stay. I have to admit, I'm itching to get a pair of these. I've tried them on before, and I remember them having good arch support...I'm hoping they still make them the way they used to. From the looks of it, they're pretty much the same, maybe a few new colors and styles, but as far as the two-strap sandal it looks exactly how I remember.
