How are you guys? I hope that May is going great so far! I have so many things to do, but I always find some time to do the things I love. One of these, is creating challenges for myself. Little things to accomplish in order to become better or just have fun. One challenge that came to mind was styling an "ugly" item in a chic way. For my first time, I chose Birkenstock. I don't think that they are ugly the conventional way, but I wouldn't actually call them chic nor pretty and stylish. The whole idea behind the challenge is that I'm always thinking how easy it is to style chic a classic, elegant item. But this pair of shoes is something that you are most likely to wear at the beach or at a very casual and relaxed situation. So, I created two different outfits using the most "chic" pair of Birkenstocks I could find. For the first outfit, I went for the blue on blue combination, which is perfect for this season and one of my favorites. It can flatter a regular figure better than white on white. Then I added some delicate gold jewelry, a minimal Victoria Beckham clutch and this amazing Michael Kors gold watch. Jumping from pastels to classic black and white for the second look, I decided to add some bright colorful accessories. Basically I tried to transform classic minimalism into something more young and fun, but always keeping it simple because of the shoes. Even though I always said that I don't like these(except if you have a problem with your feet, but that's a completely different situation), but I would easily and happily wear both looks.
What do you think of these outfits? Would you wear them? Do you like Birkenstock? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
