My Christmas look, red lips and red shoes. Suede slingbacks from Next, denim and tee from Cos, jewelry from House of Hennie.

I don’t enjoy dressing up for parties anymore, I love dressing up for occasions (hey, it’s what I do) but when it comes to more formal things I lose my interest. First of all, I refuse to buy something I might only wear two times a year and I much rather invest in a nice pair of shoes or a cashmere jumper. I guess I rather put my effort in an everyday casual wear that an evening gown. So this year I have two Christmas party to attend, lucky me and I’m not complaining but the what-to-wear stresses me. Well, it did until I cracked the code.

It is spelled RED SHOES & RED LIPSTICK. I mean no matter what you would wear no one can accuse you of not looking Christmasy right? I got these amazing suede slingbacks from NEXT and I know they will save me this season. Thank you Next!

What I would pair them with? I actually have no idea, I’m leaning towards black leather trousers, a simple top, and jewelry from House of Hennie, obviously.

Ok, so there are few things and bringing to both my holiday in Turkey and South of France.

THE STRAW HAT

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The strawhat, this one is from a market in south of France.

It’s stylish and it protects both you and your hair from the sun, a must in warmer climates.

GOLD JEWELRY’S

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. Gold jewelry is a must on your summer holidays.

I’m a gold jewelry kinda girl, and in the summer I want them bigger and chunkier. The more the merrier.

TANNED LEATHER SANDALS

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The tanned brown leather sandals.

Black in all its glory, nothing beats a tanned foot in a brown leather sandal. For me, it just adds to that natural holiday vibe I’m always aiming for. Plus it goes well with your natural skin color.

A STRAW BAG

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The straw bag to bring to the beach and dinner.

A straw bag is easy to carry all your beach essentials in and chic enough to bring on your dinner after the beach. It’s basically the only bag you need for your holiday, in different sizes, shapes, and colors obviously.

What do you bring on your holiday?

Brown leather slides from hm and So it goes magazine

When I grew up there weren’t that many sandals out there ( or maybe I just wasn’t that into them?). Sandals or flipflops were something you bought last minute before your holiday and then threw away, you didn’t really invest in a sandal and most important, they weren’t really fashion pieces. Until today.

For me the sandals have evolved from being a holiday thing to a statement shoe you can wear everywhere even in the big cities. I must say it feels good wearing a flat shoe that airs your feet on a hot day and still makes you feel fashionable!

Here you go, my favorite slides from the high street right for under fifty pounds, go go go!

goldshoes-(1-of-1)-4

There is an old Swedish song from the eighties where the Swedish band Herreys are singing about golden shoes, ask any Swede, we are all familiar with that song. To sum it up the song kind of goes like this: Diggiloo Diggiley everybody’s looking at me when I am walking in my golden shoes, I’m always flying in my golden shoes, I wish everybody had a pair of golden shoes” and so on and so on. Basically, the whole song is about how wonderful you can feel in golden shoes. I didn’t get it thirty years ago, but I get it now since I got myself a pair. Everybody need a pair of golden shoes!!! What an eye catcher and what a statement shoe, I don’t think ever I received so many compliments for a shoe.

As you can see on the picture above, with those kinds of shoes you can go really simple in the rest of the outfit, here worn with ripped vintage Levis 501 jeans. You are after all wearing gold and you don’t want to overdo it.
