W O R N :: Birkenstocks.

Cider-with-Rosie-Black-dress-and-Birkenstocks

I ‘rediscovered’ this little black silk dress right at the end of last summer, when it was really too chilly to make much use of it. I’d bought it on a whim at the end of my first year of university, back when I had way too much time on my hands and a student grant that was just crying out to be spent. Now that I’ve got a whole lot less time on my hands and a salary that’s just crying out to be put into a savings account named ‘The Wedding Fund’, I’m kind of grateful that my past self thought to buy such a cute and entirely versatile dress.

It’s oh so very comfortable (I mean, it’s essentially just a fancy nightdress, so that’s hardly a surprise) and is quickly becoming my favourite thing to wear on warm days. And you can bet your bottom dollar I take that belt clean off after every meal, and let the magical floatiness of the dress work its full stomach-hiding wonders. What an image…#reason526whyi’mnotafashionblogger

And now, let’s get to the goods. Those Birkenstocks. Oh man. Bought ‘em. Love ‘em. Want to buy more in every colour. And that’s really all I have to say on that matter.

    You look great! I’m definitely considering buying a pair of Birkenstocks this year…just not sure which colour to go for, neutral to go with everything or statement colour…hmmm?!x

    A lovely look! I love you’re wearing Birkenstock, back home in Germany every one is so confused by this trend as Germans have always worn Birkenstock! Means I’ve been trendy for years though!

    Ah, what a lovely chilled outfit! I’m happy Birkenstocks are coming back into style, I got more than a few rude remarks last year, but they are so comfy and practical, how can you not?? I have the Gizeh style, might have to try the kind you have too, they look great!

    Hi – I am not sure how I happened across your blog – maybe on the bloglovin recommended list? But anyway I am glad I did. You write really well and the pictures are pretty too. Just ordered some Birkenstocks identical to yours; oh come on the postman! I love how they are having a resurgence. And funny how when I first saw they were returning, I suspect courtesy of Garance Dore, I thought ‘no way’ and now…well I guess the Pinterest images wore me down. Just goes to show how fashion gets into our consciousness without us even knowing it. Lou x

    You look so lovely in that dress, so simply but can be worn day or night. I have the same Birkenstocks just waiting for warmer and brighter weather to wear them.

    That dress is lovely- so simple but pretty detailing as well. I love versatile pieces like that. I know what you mean about the belt thing, comfort over style equals why stick to lifestyle blogging! x
