My whole life, I have always wanted a pair of @birkenstock's. I am proud to say I didn't grow up in a family with disposable money - my parents worked hard for everything they gave us. I never asked for a £60 pair of sandals, because we couldn't afford a £60 pair of running shoes, let alone sandals. A lot of our clothing, and shoes, were hand me downs. I'm genuinely grateful for my upbringing, because it taught me to value the important things in life. This is where my love of second hand/thrift stores, recycled and up cycled clothing began.
This past year has been one of the most financially, and mentally challenging years of my life; these visa applications, flights and phone bills in regards to the applications, and lack of employment due to lack of work visa has really taken a toll on us. In one of the hottest years the UK has seen, I've scraped by the summer wearing sneakers and socks because we don't have extra cash for things like sandals.
This week, I decided to give in. I went to every thrift store and shoe store in Bridport looking for an affordable pair of summer sandals, that were not made of plastic. I had zero luck finding anything under £40 that was remotely close to sensible. I almost cracked and bought a £15 pair of tacky fliflops... but I decided I'd rather tough it out!
Then, I went back to my roots and started looking on eBay, shpock and Facebook marketplace. That's when I found these beauties. For £8. I could seriously cry. My feet are happy, comfortable and look cuter than they ever have. Thank you Lady Luck, for cutting my feet a break this year and for the many more to come. One of the reasons I've always wanted a pair of Birkenstocks is because I know that they will last forever! .

TREND ALERT 2018 : Summer Sandals 🌞
There’s a sandal style for all of your warm-weather wardrobe quandaries. PVC, raffia, and glitter sandals — yes, glitter — will add texture to your habitually airy summer wardrobe. Modern, geometric shapes with toe loops, unusual heels, and square soles will be sure to add some drama. Then there’s the fusion of girlish details like floral embroidery mixed with the feminine forever-favorites like lace-up flats that can work for, well, everything else.
Take a look above in our 10 selections style: 1.SQUARE SOLES
The sole is the statement with these By Far sandals.
We’ve evidently outdone stilettos and block heels. It’s time for geometric circular shapes in pops of color, as demonstrated by this Jacquemus pair.
Wear sunshine on your feet in the form of sunflowers with these Ancient Greek Sandals x Fabrizio Viti sandals.
Nothing screams summer quite like wearing palm leaf fiber on your feet. Might we suggest these slides by Carrie Forbes?
Athletic slides returned last season, and they’re not going anywhere — but they are getting a little more dressed-up. We’ll be living in this Pedro Garcia pair.
PVC is one of the biggest accessories trends of the spring/summer season, so for all of you “Clueless” fans, now’s the time to invest in this ‘90s staple. We love these Maryam Nassir Zadeh wedges.
Regular Birks may not be for everyone, but add some glitter with this Birkenstock x Opening Ceremony pair, and you’ve got a millennial dream sandal
If you don’t already own a pair of Castañer’s wedge espadrilles, now’s the time. It’s the perfect shoe for any summer outfit.
This ATP Atelier sandal will secure your step with a chic, toe-ring style.
A favorite for years, the femininity and versatility of a lace-up sandal like this pair by Tkees will dress up any summer look. .
