Summer Shoe Love

Holster 1

I’m clinging onto those last summery times, and rocking one of my favourite pairs of shoes, called Glow by holster Australia UK.

The brand gifted me these beauties, earlier on this year, and they are so comfortable. Although we haven’t had much of a summer here in the UK, I’m heading off to Greece for a few days with the Mr (minus children) in October. These Glow babies are set to be my second honeymoon go-to shoes.

We haven’t actually been abroad together since I was pregnant with T, six years ago. This Christmas marks ten years from our first meeting, and I really wanted to plan something special. We met at a Maximo Park gig after-party, where I introduced myself at the bar. I felt like I already recognised him, which is odd, and we became inseparable. Three months later he proposed, six months after that we married, and nine months later L appeared. A complete whirlwind of love was swiftly followed by parenthood.

It became a running joke in our families that they hadn’t heard an announcement from us in all of five minutes. Amongst those times of change, elation, responsibility and just, life, we still work hard at cherishing each other with the odd night away. Which, let’s face it, isn’t always easy. Hence the aforementioned trip, four nights away, alone. I’m anxious about being so far from the kids, despite their giddy delight about uninterrupted double (Wilson and Beevers) grandparent time.


So to me, these shoes have been faithful summer friends and are now a little symbol of an exciting trip ahead.¬†Worn here alongside trousers and a cardi, I’m going to pair them poolside, with a high waisted bikini. Complete with just enough of a wedge for that little lift, they aren’t too high. In fact, these shoes firmly top the comfort list. Comprising a jelly shoe strap, the Glows are easy to look after as well.

Whether you have any winter sunshine breaks planned or love an open toe shoe in general, I would definitely recommend snapping up a pair of holsters. Featuring flip flops and other styles too, you may like a peek at the Jetsetter trainers.

Also recently launched are their 100% vegan approved trainers, which I know is a fashion breakthrough for many. Keep an eye on holster via their gorgeous Instagram and website,
