I had the urge to buy a fun pair of summer shoes. All I have right now are very practical shoes that get worn day in and day out. Which is really nice but once in a while you have to break out and let your crazy side win and get a fun pair of shoes. I have never bought Birkies before but I fell in love. I mean, who could turn down a pair of shoe that says things like, POEMS & ART on them? Especially when the only pair left in the store is your size. Now all I need is some decent weather to go along with them.
