Firstly, I just want to say a really really big thank you to everyone for being so encouraging yesterday. I was very down in the dumps about my toe – and I’m feeling much more chipper today after all your encouraging words (and an email pep talk from another reluctant Birkenstock wearer – did you guys know Tania broke her toe this summer too???)
Back on topic!! Cut offs are something I swore I’d never wear. Partly because I have an aversion to things that look distressed or homemade, and partly because I’ve watched way way too many episodes of Arrested Development.
But I’ve seen soooo many of my friends rocking them out this summer, that like a little sheep I’m jumping on the band wagon.
Honestly though, I can’t bring myself to buy something that looks ruined – since I can ruin it myself – right? Plus all of the ones in stores are way way shorter than my comfort level…
So I made my own! Want to make some like me?
I love easy DIY’s :) (you can see how I wore them cuffed yesterday) (oh and ps. these photos are pre toe injury, I promise I am being a good girl and wearing the birks… no matter how tragic they are!)
