Holiday Shoes: Fifty Plus Style

I’m an unashamed shoe lover and have a pair for every occasion.  I wrote earlier this month about my resolution to get my travel mojo back and of course, I’ll need the right shoes for the job!  These are some of my travel choices.

Malaga Winter Break


We’re off to Malaga next month for a sightseeing break, so I’m packing comfy shoes.  No dressing up in the evening means casual chic with these nude suede Chelsea boots from M&S which go beautifully with jeans and any top.  The gold pumps are from JD Williams* and will be perfect for days out as they’re cushion soft, but sturdy, plus I love a bit of bling in the daytime for holidays!

Girls In New York


I’m really excited about my girls only trip to NYC in April and I think I’ve chosen the perfect shoes for the trip (although there’s sill time to acquire another pair).  I’m starting with red suede Chelsea boots from M&S which will give my evening outfits a bit of an edge, while ensuring that I can walk in comfort.  I’m just loving my Clarks calfskin walking shoes – I used to have shoes like these with seams on the outside, at sixth form and as soon as I saw them I knew they were coming home with me.  We’re going to be walking miles in NYC, but I still want to be stylish and I’m not a fan of trainers outside the gym.  These will go with my holiday colour scheme of black, grey and red. Finally, the sparkly pumps are an essential for slipping your feet into something comfy at the end of a long day when you just want to pop downstairs to the hotel bar for a quick nightcap.  I aim to always pack a pair of soft pumps in my bag wherever I go.  I’d like to be telling you that these are Pretty Ballerinas, but they are cheapies from New Look.  They do the job though!

Cruising The Eastern Med with Celebrity


I wrote recently about getting back on the ocean wave, so this is where glamour really comes into its own.   Cruising means dressing up to the nines, so enter my fierce stiletto Carvelas.  These are fabulous and (nearly) comfortable.  The calfskin pumps will be perfect for scooting round the ship during the day.  I bought these in a fantastic shoe shop in Malaga – they are super soft and were reassuringly expensive!

So this is my new year resolution illustrated by shoes!  JD Williams have some great shoes for taking you to where you want to be for 2016.  Take a look at the link here for some ideas.
