Slides -- the shoe of the summer, thankyouverymuch Phoebe Philo and now everyone else who has followed suit for summer 2014. While most of my fashion cohorts have opted for the height of the trend's incarnation: the classic and otherwise frowned upon Birkenstock, something about this one just had my instincts veering toward a less literal option.
Despite these oversized crisscross bands of plastic (sneaky Swedes) erected on a cork sole being a crossbreed of Céline, Isabel and the most polarizing German shoe in history, I am confident that my lack of commitment for this trend will leave me feeling extremely content by summer's end. You know, when everyone will be discarding it due to overexposure, kind of like fashion's very own Let It Go.
So here I am, being as simple as it gets in black and dark indigo. Adding a dash of dynamism is the result of my reaching for the scissors prior to leaving the house for a little trim 'round the ankles. Makes things less mundane, wouldn't you say?
