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!
#1 white floral Birkenstocks / #2 soft yellow Birkenstocks / #3 white floral Gizeh Birkenstocks / #4 raspberry Birkenstocks
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!
A huge thank you to HSN and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post!

Cute! Cute! Cute! I completely agree-it FEELS like summer!!
Julie C. says
After being a huge skeptic, I gave in & bought my 1st pair last summer. I got the Mayari style & absolutely LOVE them!!!!!!
I’m like you and Julie (above). I was kicking and screaming when I got my first pair of Birks, but my sister insisted that I had to buy them. I’ve never looked back, I now own 3 pair and they are all I want to wear in the summer. NOTHING is as comfortable as my Birks.
Caroline, the three of us (with Julie) should start a club. Haha! I’ll bet we will have a lot of members, but we can be the founders. 😉
So cute! I’ve been thinking about getting these for a while. You’re definitely making me want to buy ASAP. And I’m loving the mayari style.
How is the sizing?
Hi, Sheri! True to size! 🙂
I LOVE my Birks!! I definitely am getting a pair of the Yao style. Love how it’s a little more feminine and the colors are great!
I’d also love to see a post with links to the clothes you styled them with. Especially those jeans and longer shorts. ?
Hi, Candas! Are you on facebook or instagram? Throughout the day today I’ll be posting the links to all of the outfits! xoxo
Gail W. says
Yes, please post them on Instagram or a blog post!! Those are ALL seriously awesome outfits!!
Do you have link for the teal dress and earrings in the last collage photo? Thank you
Hi, Hallie! Are you on Facebook or Instagram? I’ll link the entire outfit later today on social media! xoxo

I have worn Birkenstock’s for 30 years. Before they were trendy. I have flat feet so they are perfect for me. I only wear the “Gizeh” sandal which is the thong style. I have 8 colors. I am a nurse and wear the Birkenstock clogs to work. I say my feet sing the Hallelujah chorus when I put them on.
Love the bags in outfit #1. Outdoor you share where you got it
I’ll be posting all outfit collages on social media today! xoxo
Cheryl Loving-Seymour says
lbe never been a fan of these sandals, but the thong style is SO cute!! And I’m loving the floral, never seen that before.
Do you know what denim shorts those are in Outfit #3??
Hi, Cheryl! I’ll link them on facebook and instagram today! If you aren’t on social media, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you the link. They are Kut from the Kloth! xoxo
I’ve been a Birkenstock girl for years and love having several pairs to choose from!
Shay Shull says
I’m a believer now! I hadn’t worn them since 8th grade, but now, I’m hooked!
Can you link the bag in outfit #1?? Thanks!
Hi, Betsy! Getting so many questions about outfit links! Do you have ig or fb? I’ll be linking everything on social media today!
I got my first pair of Birks about 12 years ago (when they weren’t in style) and haven’t looked back since. I wore that pair for honestly 8-10 years, too. They just get better and better with time. I currently have 3 pair that I wear all of the time. When I travel, I prefer Birks over tennis shoes for long walking days. They’re the best! Welcome to the club, Sheaffer!
Well, thank you Kate! Haha! They truly are AMAZING, and I hear they just get better and better with age! xoxo
Ani M. says
Never owned a pair, but the floral ones might make me change my mind!
Its been in the 90s here for almost a month – so we are definitely in SUMMER 🙂
Hi Sheaffer, can you tell me where to get the white top in outfit #1?
Hi, Libby! I’ll be posting all of the outfit collages today on social, so check on facebook or instagram stories! xoxo
Kelly Henderson says
I just bought my first pair over the weekend, I already love them!
What is the link for where to find purse from outfit #1?
Hi, Selena! I’ll be posting all of the outfit collages on social media today, so check instagram or facebook! If you don’t have social media, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com xoxo
Hi Sheaffer! This is my first time commenting. I love your blog and you posted such cute outfits today! My mom wore Birks way back in the day when they weren’t cool, and I have worn them since college. My feet like the Arizona soft bed style the best, that’s the old school two strap, but I buy a narrow width (which is more like a medium) as that style runs wide. The soft bed styles are really comfy and you don’t need to break them in. I have two pairs: taupe suede and silver, and really want to buy a third pair! I love the contrast when I wear Birks with a really cute pedicure.
Hi, Keri! Thanks for reading and for the sweet words! And I can tell I’m now going to be a life long customer! xoxo
I’m right there with you….FINALLY bought my first pair (and I’m a shoe girl) about 2 weeks ago….LOVE THEM!!!! And like you, I’m still kind of getting my footprint ‘on’ them and they just get more comfortable with ever step….. Other than that, I’m wanting that bag in pic #2! Thanks again Sheaffer for the suggestions!
Hi, Lori! Click on the SHOP tab at the top of my page, and then click on the collage you want the links for! xoxo
Cynthia Rainey says
I am a recent Birks convert. I have had my first pair for two years now and love them! The floral ones you highlighted are making me want a second pair.?
I bought my first pair of Birks last year. They’re the miyari style and I love them so much. I wore them all summer last year and after seeing these cute ones, I might have to buy another pair for this summer.
Robin OSBORNE says
Hi, Just an FYI. After speaking with a customer representative I discovered that the HSN10 code isn’t able to be used on the Birkenstock brand. I guess my infatuation with the Mayari sandal will have to continue just vicariously. 🙁
Oh no! Thanks for letting me know, Robin. I’m checking into this too and will let you know if I find out differently. They asked me to share the code, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they will allow it! xoxo
Robin OSBORNE says
Thanks for checking! My fingers are crossed too.
So they switched it on us. My contact says that the code HSNFIVE will get you $5 OFF. So sorry it was wrong at first!
Robin O. says
The HSNFIVE code does not apply to the Birkenstock brand either unfortunately, according to customer service. Oh well, I guess it is not meant to be. Have a wonderful and safe Memorial weekend!
I am so sorry Robin! I was told by HSN to share the code and then HSN was who said the code had been changed. Obviously the contact wasn’t educated on the ins and outs of the code. I really am so sorry! 🙁
I bought my first pair of Arizona’s 35 years ago and cried when I had to toss them after about 15 years. My favorite is the Gizeh, I have 3 pairs-birki, leather and essentials, which are great around water. I live in the northeast and can only wear them about 5 months a year. Love the new florals! Thanks for sharing and happy ? to you!
