Well, it’s officially Summer. I mean, the calendar doesn’t say it’s Summer yet and we’re still “in school” …..
BUT IN MY MIND?
Oh, it’s Summer.
After all, the weather is definitely acting like its summer, and I’m pretty much wearing sandals all the time now. I’ve picked up a couple of new pairs over the last two months, and I’m pleased to say that they are both EXTREMELY comfortable. And listen y’all, I’ve got some big news. One of the pairs was a pair of Birkenstocks!!! My first pair EVER. It’s taken me years to get on the Birkenstock train, but I can say now that I’m officially on it! #choochoo #allaboard #nobodyismoresurprisedthanme
And great news! Right now, HSN has a Birkenstock launch! I thought it would be fun to style 4 pairs of Birkenstocks from the launch for y’all to show you how versatile they can be.
Here’s the bottom line, Birkenstocks aren’t what they used to be. These sandals have definitely evolved over the last 10 years. I used to think of them as a utilitarian shoe that was comfy, but that’s where it ended. WELL. Birkenstocks are still crazy comfy, but now they are cute too! I’ve even come to love the quintessential Birkenstock sandal, but I’m really digging some of their new styles as well!
Here’s what you need to know about the launch before we start looking at the sandals. HSN is currently offering the following:
- Free Shipping & 3 FlexPay is offered all the time on HSN, but they are also offering 5 FlexPay on all Sandals on 5/21.
- If you are a new HSN customer, you can use the code HSNFIVE to take $5 off your purchase of $20 or more.
So…let’s get to styling!
Look how cute these floral Birkenstocks are! Styled perfectly with my favorite denim shorts, a swingy peplum, and a great basic cardi.
I liked these exact sandals and this outfit so much, I decided to put it together for myself! The vibe of the entire outfit is totally relaxed, and much of that has to do with the Birkenstocks.
Comfy AND cute. Well done, Birkenstock.
Now let’s talk about what makes Birkenstock sandals so great.
First and foremost, incredible comfort is of course what Birkenstock is known for. The insole offers great stability and cushioning, but that’s not even the best part. Get this! Over time, they totally mold to the owner’s foot! That’s right, THEY WILL MOLD TO YOUR FOOT.
I’ve only had these for a short time and worn them just a handful of times so far, but can already start to see my personal foot print in the footbed of the sandals. BE PATIENT while breaking these babies in, and the reward will be great. After the break in process, you will feel like you are wearing sandals that were personally made for you, because they will be perfectly molded to YOUR feet.
I’ve read a couple of articles on this process, and most of them basically suggest something similar to the following: 1) Wear them around your house for 30 minutes on Day 1. 2) On the next day, wear them 45 minutes. 3) For a couple of weeks, commit to wearing them between 1-2 hours around your house each day. The payoff will be HUGE and OH SO WORTH IT.
These sandals are already comfortable for me, but I’ll keep breaking them in to get to the perfectly molded to my own foot stage.
I’m so happy to have them in my closet and on my feet!
This soft yellow pair is super cute, and this pair also comes in dove blue. I love the 3 straps and the white summery sole.
I know so many of y’all totally love the flip flop styling during the summer, and these are a great option! And if you click on this link, you can see the other color option that is a DARLING green and pink option!
This raspberry color and style is so bright and fun! I thought they would go great with this beach look.
Look how cute all of the Birkenstock sandal and outfit options are!
So, which pair is your favorite? I obviously love pair #1, but Outfit #2 is making me want the soft yellow pair as well!
Don’t forget: If you are a new HSN customer, you can use the code HSNFIVE to take $5 off your purchase of $20 or more! Click HERE to see all of the Birkenstocks offered at HSN.
And I’m dying to know…are you a Birkenstock girl? If so, are you a newbie like me? OR have you been a devoted Birkenstock lover for years and years? I know that Birkenstock fans are PASSIONATE about the brand, so I’m curious to know where everybody falls. Come on, get on the Birkestock train with me! Give them a try and be AMAZED at how they actually conform to your feet. It’s a thing of wonder y’all, and I’m so happy that I’ve finally jumped on board!
