To Birk or not to Birk… That is the question. Birkenstocks or Mandals – which ever you prefer. I’m talking about the original Birkenstocks and the Senso Mandal! These shoes have made their appearance again – and i’m not so sure I’m a fan at all! But, unfortunately the mind is a cruel place and I also want them. It’s a love, hate relationship with these shoes.
My instagram feed is always filled with people that love fashion as much as I do and it’s hard not to fall in love with these shoes when they style them so well. Here’s a little collection of the photos I see very often in my feed that are causing this love hate relationship!

Look, these chicks have certainly made the birk work and I want to make it too! But I always ask myself, How do I justify this purchase? One thing that does scare me a little is my toes being completely visible. I’m not a fan of toes… or feet in general. But, hey… these sexy leather mandals may make an appearance down the track in my wardrobe. I’d certainly prefer to wear them with longer pants than shorts! A bit too much skin for my liking!
Anyway, what do you guys think of the mandal? Are you a fan or not?
