Thrifted Fashion: Sailor Stripe Dress & Birkenstocks

Yet again, I benefit from having lots of recently pregnant women in my family! Stripes are always a favorite of mine because they look so classic and fresh. I especially like navy and white 🙂

The Birkenstocks are from Ebay, purchased gently used. I went to school at Appalachian State University, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Birks were a staple wardrobe item for basically everybody on campus. In fact, up until that point I thought they were shoes for people who have given up. And now I know they are for people who have given up on their feet hurting. I love them and I have another pair in silver. I also have fond memories of a beautiful professor back in my freshman year who always did her makeup, painted her toenails, and wore Birkenstocks like they were a statement shoe. She’s still one of most stylish people I’ve ever met.

Dress: FREE from my sister-in-law

Necklace: Gift from my husband (I think it was a promo gift with some perfume)

Shoes: $25, Birkenstocks from Ebay
