Christmas Countdown – Day 11

If you are anything like me you have picked your children’s Christmas clothes well in advance, ready to be worn on the big day. I decided on five lovely outfits and even sourced the hair accessories to match but only this week realised I forgot all about the footwear, oops! Upon closer inspection some of their shoes really aren’t up to Christmas standards anymore so I did some quick shopping to complete the look.

Skeanie Mary Janes

Just like her older sisters our cheeky Sybil is crazy about shoes, I wonder who she gets that from? She is also quite picky and if shoes aren’t 100% comfortable there is no chance of getting them on her feet again. Lucky for me these gorgeous Skeanie shoes totally passed the test.

Skeanie Snug BootsAustralian footwear label Skeanie ticks all the important boxes: the range is stylish and on trend, the leather is soft and comfortable, the materials are high quality and durable and the designs are supportive for healthy, growing feet. As an Associate Partner of The Australian Podiatry Association (NSW) Skeanie is putting our children’s foot health first, such a great reassurance. The range is even Fair Trade, how awesome is that?

Skeanie SandalsBoots and loafers, Mary Janes and sandals, trainers and gumboots, the Skeanie collection is always growing and with sizes ranging from teeny infants up to size 41 (depending on the style) they have all kids covered. With the Christmas season around the corner festive colours like red, silver and gold are always hugely popular so you better grab your party shoes before they sell out. How sweet are these Cross Over Sandals?

SkeanieFor Sybbie we decided on the classic Mary Jane shoes (RRP $49.95, available in 8 stylish colours) in timeless patent navy leather, they look gorgeous with bare feet in the warmer months and equally awesome with tights in cooler weather. I particularly love how the elasticised back adds that little bit of stretch to make the shoes more comfortable and easier to put on for little hands and of course the velcro closure is quick and convenient.

Dec 102011

A few months ago I was reading a magazine (a very rare occasion, I do not often get to sit down) and came across some gorgeous ladies sandals from Holster. If you are in Australia you may have spotted the stylish Holster range in David Jones but is not just Australia where Holster is very popular, with over 1500 Holster stockists worldwide this is one label not to be missed.

Australian label Holster is all about stunning, high quality footwear for ladies and little girls. Although some closed-in options are available Holster is most known for their striking summer styles featuring eye-catching jewels, studs and Swarovski elements. The current ladies jellies range offers a wide selection of colours and designs to complement every outfit. My favourite is the Cinderella Jelly ($68.95, size 5-10), available in 5 fashionable colours.

At Holster they know that the love for sparkles and shine starts early so little girls can sport the Holster look too. Starting at size 6 the children’s collection offers leather sandals and jellies that will get the stamp of approval from any little princess. Holster Jelly sandals are a popular choice because of their antimicrobial and odour resistant properties and of course they are very easy to clean which is very handy with young children.

Parents will be pleased to know that Holster pays close attention to detail, making sure the designs are sturdy and embellishments don’t fall off at the first tiny jump. The gorgeous Holster Kids Bow Sandal ($52.95, size 6-12) offers much needed support for little feet with leather straps across the ankle and foot. If your daughter is like my little lady and keen on anything that glitters and sparkles she will love this style decorated with acrylic diamantes topped off with a bow.

Make sure you keep an eye on the Holster Fashion Facebook page to stay up to date with the latest news and specials.
