STYLE // Birkenstocks & Socks?

This time last year we were a month into our epic summer heatwave.

Today I've been working at my kitchen table with the heating on full blast and my dressing gown on over my clothes.

Earlier this year, when we had those few days of freakishly warm February weather, I treated myself to a pair of Birkenstocks. I'd wanted some since the end of last summer and seeing as they're a little on the pricey side I figured I'd do well to get them at the beginning of spring to make sure I got the most wear out of them. I must have angered the weather gods with my presumptuousness because now its nearly the end of June and I've only been able to wear them twice!

I'm crossing my fingers that the current weather reports are right (for once) and that this never ending rain will stop and the temperature will reach the 20s by July. With that in mind, I've been very prepared and have been putting together heaps of summer outfits that will go with my trusty new Birks. They're easy to wear, incredibly comfortable (so perfect if you do a lot of walking or are on your feet a lot, like me) and look great with the simplest of outfits... I've been thinking about loose fitting jeans or denim cut offs and crisp white shirts, lightweight linen overalls with the legs rolled up, and short black t-shirt dresses. Accessorise with a pair of oversized sunnies, gold hoop earrings and a straw bag and you're good to go.

In the meantime, while the weather's still a little on the chilly side, is it acceptable to wear socks with Birkenstocks?
