Birkenstocks Are Back Baby!

birkenstock.milano

My feet are so happy to see the newest blast from the past.  Birkenstocks are back baby!  Your feet can rest easy during the warmer months knowing that they won’t get hot and blistered!

Comfort is in and why should it be?!  The flips are such a flop.  Get up to date with the out of date this summer.

In case you didn’t know (because I didn’t), there’s a wide variety of Birkenstocks to choose from (Birkenstock Milano featured above).  So many styles and colors.  You’re sure to find one to fit your style.

Which Birkenstocks are your favorite?

Have you snagged your pair yet?  If not, get yours now at Free People.

Your dogs will thank you. Trust me.

Birkenstock Milano. $12o USD (toe-tally worth it!)

Bringin’ Sexy Back With A Fanny Pack

I don’t care what anyone has to say.  I’m fairly confident that I will be responsible for bringing the fanny pack back in style. Yes, you did read that right, I said FANNY PACK.

Seriously though, lets think.  It’s almost summer.  From farmers markets to music festivals, we’re all on the go but we need something to hold all of our goodies in.

Yes I know when you’re reading this that you most likely think that I’m off my rocker and I’ve lost it.  Why bring back such a fashion no-no like the fanny pack?  It’s almost as scandalous as bringing back the mullet (For the record:  A cause in which I will NEVER support).

We can totally spice up the fanny pack though and make it a fashion statement with a few useful tips:

  • Wear it on your hip.  Don’t be a dweeb and buckle that baby on your front or back.  To the side is much cooler.
  • Tight is not right.  Keep it loose and easy.  No pun intended.
  • Think “hipster“.
  • Leather is awesome!
  • Don’t be self conscious…OWN IT!  If you look like you know what you’re doing, people will believe you!
  • Buy vintage…believe it or not, people are just looking to unload these things.  Especially do this if you’re looking for a leather fanny.  Vintage scuffed up leather is totally cool and you’ll be able to find some pretty old school fannies for a fraction of the price that you’d find a new leather fanny for.  Seriously…Spring is here and there are garage sales everywhere.  Go rummage and I’m sure you’ll find something great.

I’ve scoured the internet looking for my favorite fannies and you’d be amazed at how many really cool fanny packs you can find!

Keys? Check. Cell phone? Check. Moolah? Check. Doggie poo bags? Check. I could go on all night…but I won’t.

You go girl.


How do you feel about fanny packs?  Love em or leave em?  Let me know!

 

WATCH OUT

 

It’s true.  Watches are back in style.  Don’t go out and just buy a boring piece to tell the time though.  Go out and find a watch that can make a statement.  Look for chunky, bling, shiny, unique styles that fit your personality and style the best.  I’ve been trying to find an affordable watch for myself, but it seems that they are all more money than I’m willing to spend or too ugly.  I’ve taken my search to the internet and have decided to share my finds with you!

Check out the Hannah Diamante Watch.  A someone classic look with a hint of sparkle and modern style.  This watch is my favorite.  Choose from white, gold or rose gold.  Get a better look at Forever New.  $30USD
