The thoughts have quickly turned to our summer holidays, but what's your holiday style? Are you happy bathing by the pool, do you love a camping ‘staycation’ with the family, or does a cruise put a big smile on your face?
Well, read on, as we’ve put together some ShuBoutique styling tips that are sure to make your holiday heaven even more heavenly from our latest summer 2018 collection.
Sun, Sea & Sandals
If you are anything like us at ShuBoutique, then you got your sun-filled, all-inclusive beach holiday booked in January, and now the countdown is finally ON. Some say that the anticipation of a holiday is far more exciting than the holiday itself, and we have to agree with that a teeny bit. Especially when it comes to shopping before those oh so important holiday clothes, sandals, and bags. Floating maxi dresses, coordinated beachwear, and that super stunning summer dress must be accessorized with gorgeous, yet packable sandals and bags. That means opting for flats that can easily take you from day to night without a hitch.
It’s one of the reasons why ShuBoutique brought back some of our favourite Lunar sandals from last season. They were extremely popular and ladies told us what big hits they were on their holidays.
The Beverly is a toe post sandal with lovely styling accents that work by the pool, and add comfortable glamour to your evening out. They are available in black, beige and pink. One of each colour and your beach shoe wardrobe is sorted.

We think that the Jemma Lunar sandal is the ideal ‘wear to the airport and show off your lovely pedicured feet' type sandal. They are one less thing to pack and will keep your evening outfits looking great day after day too.
It’s the ‘s’ gold detail down the front of this sandal that does it for us. They are simply fabulous and available on our website in Black, Tan, and Coral.
The Lunar Belize sliders are the best choice for you, especially if you prefer a slider to a toe post. The eye-catching glitzy top strap is adorned with gemstones for day to night sparkle. These also have the added bonus of a padded inner sole for maximum comfort when you do decide to venture around the shops, bars, and restaurants.
We also think that the Lunar Connie toe post mule is a great choice for those wanting a little bit of height. The design is simple, yet just enough to see you right through your beach holiday activities.
And for ultimate comfort and style with height, the Lunar Favour will be your hero sandal for summer 2018. These have been designed to fit your feet with the padded insole and slingback Velcro fastenings that will adjust to fit you.

If your summer is filled with lots of little city breaks, then packing light and owning a pair of stylish, yet comfy summer shoes is your number one priority. For this, we think that XTI is the brand for you. The Spaniards know how to create a comfy yet stylish shoe, trainer, and sandal that will keep you on your feet all day long.
We love a lady that simply cannot bear wearing flats and still needs to uphold a bit of glamour. Even knowing that you’ll be strolling for miles through a beautiful city will not put you off wearing heels.
Those ladies are sure to fall in love with the XTI wedge trainers. They are also silver which, as far as we are concerned, is a colour that goes with almost everything and will cater to your city break daywear every, single, time.
The other option is our XTI Ladies Casual Ice Trainer in case you do prefer to pound the streets wearing flat trainers. Don't think they lack in glamour, however; these too are metallic with a lovely gem detail.
The UK does us proud on the stunning holiday location front, whether you love the Lake District, feel at one with the Devon and Cornwall coast, or you simply can’t resist a good old British seaside resort. The only downside of holidaying or camping in the UK is the packing for all weather. Hot, cold, windy, sunny or wet – you are bound to get it all in one week.
Well, ShuBoutique has thought very carefully about this, and this season, we have found some great all-weather shoes that will keep you and your feet happy.
The ultimate staycation shoe has to be super comfortable, keep water at bay, look great and be easy to clean. The Lunar Butler combines all these needs in one simply stunning pump. With a lovely metallic toe and heel and available in navy, beige and pink, we know for a fact that you won’t be complaining about your feet in these.
It's necessary to walk a fair bit on your staycation, as you won't want to miss any of the local sights and attractions. For when the sun shines, we stock the Lunar Bilbao. Again, these toe post sandals have the padded comfort sole but don't miss out on the glitz stakes, thanks to the gemstones and diamante spiral design. You’ll enjoy taking your day trips out in these.
Ahoy Matey – it’s Cruise time
It comes to a certain point in life when a cruise becomes so very appealing. You get a taste of everything, from sightseeing, sunbathing, eating amazing food and glamming up to the nines. That’s all great until it comes to the packing. You literally need everything and it can soon become a logistical nightmare.

We think that metallics and whites should be your very best friends for a cruising occasion, as they are guaranteed to go with every outfit and occasion you intend to embrace.
The Espadrille Wedge
Espadrille wedge heels scream out Riviera sophistication and will make any stroll on the deck feel like the height of glamour – especially if you team them with a big sun hat.
We have some amazing Espadrille XTI Wedges exclusively in our Cleckheaton boutique in both silver and black. These can be dressed down when you have cocktail hour at the pool bar or dressed up for an evening of dancing.
We love the rose gold trend, the colour screams summer and, like other metallic tones, it manages to go with everything. The Lunar Melia is a fabulous espadrille on a super comfortable wedge with the famous Lunar padded insole. The elasticated ankle strap enhances the look, style, and comfort, so much so, that these could even be worn for sightseeing trips – as long as a long leisurely lunch is included.
Sliders with Sass
Next stop is a pair of easy slip on for your days at sea. But who wants just any slip-on when you’re cruising the waves? We didn’t think so, which we why we love the Lunar Burford Mule in white. These are simple, comfy, non-slip and include a touch of glamour with the added pearl design. Our advice; pack more swimwear and take these. They’ll go with everything!
Take a look at our Race Day blog to get our style inspiration for that very special occasion.
Visit our Boutique in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire and we will style you with true Yorkshire honesty - you won’t walk away looking like a bag of rags.
We are proud to offer a boutique with a small local business mindset. It does mean that we like to stock a variety of shoe, sandal and bag styles, but in limited quantities.
