Spring Shoes: A Tie-In Colour

I was in the Paddington Sacha Drake store recently to pick up something I needed to add to my outfit for a wedding. While I was there I found a pair of shoes. I’ve never seen them before: the brand is Holster, and they are an Aussie company based in Noosa, Queensland. The style I bought are Admire Wedge in Champagne.  They are gorgeous and so easy to wear!

Last year, I had a silver pair of thongs that lasted me through the warmer seasons but they’ve had their day and I have been looking for a new pair of go-to thongs with a small heel to replace them.  I tend to pick a highlight tie-in colour for the season, e.g. gold, silver, black, nude. Last year it was silver and I had a heap of silver necklaces and bracelets.  This year I’m going with the nude/champange colour and will be looking for a few other accessories to tie it in. More nudes, gold, bronzes and browns.

I find picking a focus tie-in colour helps me be clear about sorting out my wardrobe (and giving away clothes I don’t wear) and looking for a few new pieces to compliment my existing wardrobe. Focus, means less brain space about worrying about what to wear, which means freedom to be, and go and do.

– Below, the mint dress is from Just Jeans: I bought it new at the end of last Spring on special and pulled it out now to wear.  While there is still a bit of coolness in the air, a 3/4 sleeve cardigan I’ve had for about a year (from BIG W) does the trick.  I like the look of nude and gold with green.

– The peach Review blouse is new and the skirt I found at a second hand shop a few years ago: they both go nicely with the gold/grown/nude highlight.  

– I went to markets the other night, and found a gorgeous bead tree necklace that brings out many spring colours and looks good with brown tones too. I wore it recently with a beige cardi and my spotted Liz Jordan Jeans (pictured here).

Just by picking one colour, I can see a Spring/Summer wardrobe forming, and this makes it easy for me find clothes to match wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing. I’m no fashionista but I gain a lot of pleasure in colours and enjoying life in the clothes I wear. For me it’s not about looking good but feeling confident, happy and free in what I wear.

I particularly enjoy wearing this outfit. It’s easy and feels light, pretty and fresh.  I was pointing to the kids at this moment who were running of to explore the rocks in the distance. “Don’t go past there!”

One of the things I really like about the shoes is the way they are made: the diamonte decoration are studded into the shoe (rather than stuck on) so I expect them to last well. 


I was curious about the brand and took a look at the  Holster website and found a huge range of gorgeous shoes, including adorable kids shoes!  Love finding new Aussie brands who make great products.

    I’m a HUGE Holster fan. I discovered them recently on Instagram and think they are such a pretty and versatile shoe. I love the jewelled ones you chose.

      Yes! I adore the ballet flats too. One of my daughters would love the silver ones…maybe for Christmas.
