Sorry Chacos, I'm More Of A Birkenstocks Girl

10 reasons why Birks are really are the best shoe out there.

Chacos are everywhere, and I mean everywhere. But are they really all that they are cracked up to be? I think not. I mean I'm sure they are great for adventurous outdoor summer activities but have you seen them dressed up? You just cannot do it, it doesn't look good.

But you're probably saying what comfy shoe looks good both dressed up and dressed down? What summer sandal is beneficial for your feet, yet still stylish? What summer sandal molds exactly to your foot shape with only a few wears?


Yup, you heard right, Birkenstocks do all of that and so much more.

I bet you didn't think that was possible, did you?

Trust me on this one, it isn't too good to be true.

And to make my argument more believable, here are 10 reasons why I think you should invest in Birkenstocks over Chacos.

1. They are designed to mold to your own feet only after a few wears, so the shoe is customized specifically for you!

Talk about maximum comfort.

2. They are extremely versatile and can be worn with summer dresses or dressed down for a more casual everyday look.

I mean you can wear them to church, to work, on a walk, and basically anywhere else.

3. There are so many styles to choose from.

Trust me, you will find a pair that you absolutely love, there are just so many to choose from.

4. They are made to last.

These lovely shoes have been made in Germany since 1774 with the highest quality material that will literally last you forever. So although they may be pricey, you're bank account will thank you later when you literally will never have to buy a pair of sandals ever again.

5. They are environmentally friendly.

The Birkenstocks company has managed to reduce their energy consumption by 90% in the last 30 years and have managed to use adhesives for their shoes that are 95% environmentally friendly.

6. They have great arch support.

Not only are they super comfy, but they are great for your feet too! The sole of the shoe is made from a special type of rubber which is designed to absorb the impact from walking which lessens the overall stress on your feet, legs, and spine.

7. They look good on anyone.

Yup, that's right, both men and women can wear these shoes as most of them come in unisex sizes and styles. And with the colors so versatile, you are sure to find a fit that compliments your style. And did I mention they make them for kids too, how much better can it get?

8. They have adjustable widths.

So if you have a more narrow or wide foot, you are still in luck with these awesome shoes because you can adjust the straps to fit your feet perfectly.

9. You can even wear them with socks.

I mean haven't you heard the term "Birkensocks"?

10. They really are the best shoe out there.

And if you don't already have a pair, I highly suggest you invest in one, or if you do, I highly suggest you invest in one, or two, or even three more pairs, they definitely won't go out of style anytime soon.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!
