the beloved birkenstock… yay or nay!?

The blog world has been quietly rumbling about the return of the beloved Birkenstock sandal for a few months now… but with the weather warming, your favorite bloggers wearing them and even J.Crew carrying them I think they are here to stay.  Are you a fan? Yay or nay?

I'm still a little on the fence… while I love relaxed style and fashion I do tend to think this one is a maybe a little overly casual for me.  But when I see these lovely ladies wearing them (sources found here) I almost can't help but be a little swayed by them.  Plus, when the style gods hand you a "trend" like sweatshirts, sneakers and comfy sandals like Birkenstocks it almost doesn't seem right to turn away from them (while on the other hand stilettos are a trend I am fine passing on).  Am I right?

I think my favorite would be the classic black suede… what about you? Have a favorite? 
Can't wait to wear them? Won't be caught dead in them?

Do tell!

see you around...

Yay! I bought a pair of the Mayari style of Birks a few years ago and I just kicked them off my feet before reading your post. They are like walking on heaven, but I do think you have to be careful with the proportions of the rest of your outfit. Otherwise, you give off a pretty crunchy vibe. I just saw a pair with an ankle strap that looks pretty interesting too. You might like those!
