What makes me holiday happy?
The answer is simple.
It is the warmth of the sun, the vibrancy of colour, the joy of relaxation and a re-work of fashion.
I will be so ready for the caftan and casual vibe. As much as I love the all black, revel in the tailored and repeat the classics, I cannot wait to go free, wear the loose and channel my inner bohemian.
That woman is there and ready to come out of hiding.
What’s the one thing missing? The answer is the perfect pair of sandals.
Summer and holidays switch my fashion mindset.
I am more open, slightly more adventurous and definitely more colourful. As my mood changes so does my clothing and my footwear. Dresses re-appear and my shoes are more playful, more open.
This season I am lacing up, not exactly Roman style but in the ROMANFLAT.
I like laces with flats, with wedges, with sandals; laces give a shoe definition and style, even the simplest sandal pretties up with a leather twist or two wound around the ankle. The sandals I am going to wear are the Stuart Weitzman pair in blue suede; the prettiest blue to remind me of the sea even when I am far away. I will wear them with caftans, with dresses and even with the old “boyfriends”.
I am no gladiator but I will be lacing up ;) xv
