Deciding which shoes to take is always a struggle when it comes to packing my suitcase - I want to take all my favourites, but it isn't always practical packing a suitcase full of shoes!
That's why I've narrowed down 3 essential shoe styles that will have you covered for your next summer holiday.
1. WELL HEELED
I'm definitely a high-heel girl, but when it comes to holiday style, practically always wins, so opt for styles with a thick, block heel, like these glossy navy
I prefer a block heel, (which you can expect to see a lot of this season), because you have the extra height, as well as additional support, comfort and ease when exploring.
Nothing worse than a stiletto caught in cobble stones!
My tip - try navy as an elegant alternative to black for summer.
2. POOL TO BAR
It wouldn't be a summer holiday without sandals! I recommend packing a style that can easily be slipped on and off like these blue and white
, which just so happen to be ridiculously comfortable.
My tip when searching for the perfect sandal - avoid too many straps, wraps or buckles. This will help you avoid unnecessary tan-lines, and also make it quicker and easier when making the move from beach to bar.
Simply slip them off when you're ready to go for a dip, then back on when it's time to retire for a cocktail.
3. ON THE GO
In between flights, transit, and running to catch your next cab/train/boat - you need a shoe that is chic AND comfortable. Introducing the moccasin.
Eternally on trend, a pair of moccasins is the perfect travel accompaniment. I love to wear mine with cropped trousers when out and about. Moccasin's also have the ability of instantly dressing up a pair of denim cut-offs.
Versatile and fashionable, I love the
LYNDI driving moccasins
Wear them with white for a gorgeous preppy travel-look.
And there you have it - 3 key styles that will have you stylish and chic for your next va-cay.
