Let’s get those pigs ready! Let’s take inventory!
I feel like I’m getting to see old friends when I change shoe seasons.
Here is what I like to do:
I first ask myself these questions…
- Am I excited to see this shoe?
- Would I still buy this shoe today?
- Does this shoe still fit my foot, my lifestyle, my clothing style?
I was able to answer YES to the Birkenstock/Faux Birk/Crockenstock collection below:
From left to right…
I wore these gold Birks so much last summer. They are pricey, but I find that they last for multiple seasons. I have already worn them over the weekend, too.
The black patent Birkenstocks were a Mother’s Day gift like 6 years ago. Remember that cost per wear philosophy? Yup.
The black plastic were worn a ton and they came from Target. Still love them. They are a bit lower than I prefer in the heel and the arch, though.
The white plastic were from Amazon and I prefer their heel and arch height.
The Tory Burch were $70 ish at a consignment shop like 8 years ago. I have worn them a lot when I wanted a bit of an elevated look withouth the heel height.
I love the MIA clog sandals. Would you believe I bought these like three years ago? Now, you see this style everywhere! I love these for going out to dinner. They work with jeans and dresses.
The black are Soda brand from Amazon and I have had them for maybe 4 years. I’m not sure if they are still in style, but I always struggle with black sandals for summer.
I love the women sandal. Those were from last year and I wore them out a lot.
And, finally..the Marc Fisher lace up gold. I was “influenced” by a blogger and I loved them so much. I am excited to wear them!
And, as far as new spring and summer sandals for 2022..
Introducing the Sorel blush sandals from a consignment store for $17. I think they retail for about $120.
I still have them attached, so this photo was awkward. Also, I have a bit of hammertime going on in the foot department, but I plan to get a professional pedicure soon.
One should never make others look at their feet, so for this I apologize. I did it for you; I wanted you to be able to see the sandal.
Some people talk about a “starter” piece to see if they fully embrace/like a trend. So, Target is a good place to try trends, even though I have a rule to not buy Target shoes if I can help it. I have failed from time to time. The siren song is just too strong.
I am not sure what holes are in my spring and summer shoe wardrobe yet.
I do have some in my donate/sell pile. I just know that I shouldn’t keep something that wasn’t able to be answered affirmatively in my questions above.
What about you? Have you been sandal shopping? Any trends you want to try? Any favorite summer shoe brands? I guess you can tell I love Birkenstock, but I also love Reef. They make the best flip flops in my opinion.
