Black Ikat + Birks!


So good news/bad news situation here on a Monday. The bad news: I got (fake) Birks. The good news? I got (fake) Birks and love them. I lived in them pretty much all weekend at the lake (had a blast by the way).

I love the vibe (casual, obviously) that they bring to any outfit. Sleeveless shirt? Class it down a bit with Birks and a casual bag. Striped tee dress? Take it down a notch with some Birks.

I’m obsessed, so watch out friends! But be honest, do you love them or hate them?


  • On Target item: Merona Black Sleeveless Blouse (exact – I own it in black and white…and you should too!)
  • Sunglasses: Target (Summer 2014 – SUPER similar)
  • Purse: Mossimo, Target (exact – $11.54)
  • Belt: Mossimo Supply Co., Target (old; similar 1, similar 2)
  • Shorts: Old Navy (Summer 2013 – see ikat short options below!)
  • Birks: Topshop (exact)

  • Do I love or hate them? Kind of both!! I definitely can’t get behind the standard taupe color, but I don’t mind this black version. And I’ve seen a few other styles that I actually think are really cute. And I mean, they do look comfortable! But I probably won’t jump on the trend. Anyway, you look adorable in them!

    • Hahaha. I feel you, because I was totally not on board at first, but it took a while to find a pair I could rock. Thanks though! :)

  • I love this! The colors are amazing together. So glad you had a great weekend!

  • Those shorts!! The print is so fun!! Like @Andi__Smith:disqus, I also don’t mind the faux Birks in black! You make ’em look good, girl!
