The Ugly Shoe Trend

Monday, 28 July 2014



*Warning*
Serious b*tch face in every single one of these photos.
I can't get over the fact I look so angry in all of these photos haha! I guess it just wasn't my day.. I was recently gifted a pair of Birkenstocks from Cloggs and I can't tell you how nice they feel on your feet. I have never been too keen on the ugly shoe trend, I think some people really pull it off but I don't think I'm one of those. I just end up looking really lazy and not put together at all (exhibit A being this post). Maybe that's why I adopted the b*tch face for this look.. 

I initially tried styling them with what I would typically wear but I found Birkenstocks looked too bulky on me, maybe because they're a dark colour, but I think it's mostly because I have big feet - size 7 problems, who's with me? So I just threw on my ripped jeans, a slouchy grey vest top, and slipped on my Birkenstocks. This outfit is really laid back, I'm sure you can tell, so it's easy to recreate. Accessory wise I kept it toned down with just my silver watch which was pretty cheap (I'm saving up to buy myself a good silver watch).

Oh and if you'd like to get your hands on a pair of Birkenstocks, then check out my Birkenstock giveaway that went live yesterday! The giveaway ends in 2 weeks (August 10, 2014).

  7. Yeah, I definitely feel the same about the clunky/ugly shoe trend. I really don't get why people are consciously spending money on stuff they think is weird looking just because it's a trend. And please...size 7 problems? Try size 9 problems. I have trouble with every flat sandal out there.

    1. I was lucky to have been sent these, I think if I were to try out the trend I would have bought a cheap knockoff from Primark or so. I think trends are highly influential especially within the blogging world, but so many people I have spoken to hated them and then fell in love with them haha so I guess you can't judge until you try it. A friend of mine is a size 9 too and gets her shoes made! I guess size 7 isn't that bad in comparison! X

    1. I know! I was the same, and I think I still am slightly, but I'm definitely leaning more towards them now (especially in the summer heat, they're just too comfy!) X
