A week or two with your out of office on, sun, sand, and a whole lot of relaxing; what’s not to love about a summer holiday?
Summer in the UK is now well underway, but with temperatures across Europe remaining at their peak well into September, there’s still plenty of time to plan a late summer holiday. If you’re on the lookout for late summer holiday inspiration, look no further. Here at Moda in Pelle we’re detailing some of our favourite destinations, alongside the footwear you will need to take you through your holiday in true style.
How To Pack For A Summer Holiday
It goes without saying that the main thing to consider when packing for a summer holiday is the heat – and how to stay comfortable no matter how hot the weather is!
Summer holidays are all about relaxing, whether it’s around the pool, on the beach, or sat enjoying a glass of wine in a historic village. Swimwear is a great starting point – this will stay cool and comfortable throughout the day, and is ideal for refreshing dips in and out of the water. Next, look at light layers. From floaty dresses to beach cover-ups, there are a whole host of lightweight options that will ensure you’re feeling and looking fabulous all day.
When it comes to your footwear, sandals are the obvious choice. Keep it simple and comfortable in the daytime with flip flops or slider sandals that you can slip on and off as needed. Then, for any bigger evenings or nights out, invest in a pair of statement sandals or wedges. These will instantly dress up your look while remaining practical and comfortable in the late evening sun.
Our Top Summer Holiday Destinations
Santorini – Greece
Santorini truly is a treat for the eyes; beautiful white houses stacked up from the coastline, the blue of their architectural detailing matched only by the blue of the sea. From sun-soaked trips away with friends to a summer break with your other half, Greece’s stunning Santorini should be a destination on any bucket list!
Whether you’re taking it easy with leisurely strolls through the markets or kicking back and relaxing around the pool or on the beach, a pair of sandals is a must. Something that can easily take you from daytime to evening is always a bonus when it comes to packing – we’d recommend the Olista Cobalt Blue Suede Sandals. The eye-catching blue shade is perfect for paying homage to your surroundings, while the diamante trim takes these flat sandals from daytime casual to evening glam with ease.
The Algarve – Portugal
The Algarve in Portugal has been a popular tourist destination for many years – and for good reason! From beautiful golden beaches boasting an array of sports and activities through to stunning towns bursting with history, there really is something for everyone in The Algarve – making this the perfect destination for a fun-packed family trip away.
For the trip that offers everything, you need footwear to match. Step forward our new summer holiday go-to – the Narita White Leather Sandals. These versatile and beautiful sandals are the perfect choice for a whole host of activities. From exploring the local area or checking out the wonders of Portuguese cuisine, to relaxing around the pool or on the beach, these multi-purpose slider sandals will go with anything and will ensure you’re looking and feeling fabulous all day or night.
Positano – Italy
Set on the picturesque Amalfi Coast, the town of Positano in Italy is the perfect destination for a romantic couples getaway. Positano is close to the island Capri, and just a short journey from the town of Amalfi itself, making it the perfect base to explore the delights that Southern Italy has to offer.
With an abundance of Italian food, independent boutiques and beautiful beaches and coastline to explore, practical footwear is a must. Sandals or lightweight trainers such as the Alasca Nude Porvair are great for keeping comfortable on Positano’s winding streets.
Then, if you’re heading out to wine and dine in the evening, step your look up a notch with some glamorous wedges. We just love the Payna Rose Gold Porvair wedges. With their beautiful rose gold shade and elevated wedge flatform style, the Payna is perfect for dressing up your look while remaining suitable for the many hills of Positano.
Wherever you’re lucky enough to be heading off to this year, do it in true style with the collection of women’s footwear at Moda in Pelle. With a stunning array of flat sandals, wedge sandals and mule sandals, you’re sure to discover your new summer holiday go-to.
