Eat Pray Wear Love: Gold Slides

Gold Slides

I had sworn off the "slide" trend with the recent come back of Birkenstocks, but admittedly, they began to grow on me and I, at one point, considered buying a pair. Then I came across these Gold Slides from J.Crew, and they seemed to be the perfect feminine fit for my slide woes.


On another note, maybe I'm just getting older, but my closet saw more and more long shorts this Summer, while my upper thighs saw less and less day light. Anyone else with me on this?

  1. I am really happy to hear that you decided against Birkenstocks. Nothing against the company, but the shoes are so ugly and manly, I don't understand the fad that some bloggers are raving about. These are much much cuter and I love how you essentially dressed up a simple black tee with them!

  2. I am so with you on the anti-Birk thing! And totally jealous that you got these slides in gold! I snagged the silver full price and when they went on sale got the luggage color. Gold & Black were sold out. They are seriously my go to slide for just running out the door and still looking adorable! I'm also with you on the longer short thing.....my 31 year old self with "sprinter thighs" just can't do short shorts! Keep up the cuteness! I'm new to your blog and loving your comfy casual style!

  4. I almost bought those slides from J. Crew as well, and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't. And yes, I swore off short shorts long ago.

  8. Your sandals really do make this outfit, so eye catching plus they'll go with so many looks as gold is just the best neutral!

  10. OMG the exact same thing happened to me. Refused to do slides then bought these and now I'm obsessed with them. I'm kind of bummed I didn't get them in the silver or brown. Aren't they the best?

    Thanks for visiting Pursuit!
