Not sure what to pack for your summer vacay this year? Why not take inspiration from our creative directors, Annabel and Lauren, and discover what styles they will be taking with them to two very different holiday destinations.

This year Lauren is traveling to the sun-kissed sands of tropical Far North Queensland. Her itinerary includes lots of down-time by the pool, sight-seeing and the occasional evening outing.

For a casual day lazing in the sun, Lauren has packed the perfect slip on sandal, Wink. Available in Coconut, Nude and quintessential Black, which Lauren will be pairing with linen shirts and swimwear.

During her stay Lauren is planning on visiting the Daintree rainforest for a day of exploring the incredible waterfalls as well as a picnic under the shady canopies. ‘Princeton is the perfect sneaker to combat the variety of demands a trip to the rainforest would present. It looks nice, it feels nice and it’s easy to wash’, says Lauren. With an orthotic friendly sole and removable memory, arch support innersole, Princeton is one of the most comfortable and functional sneakers in the Alfie & Evie range.

When it’s time to hit the town for a special dinner night Lauren has chosen the uber popular elevated sandal, Italo. ‘Italo Grey Python pairs perfectly with a black evening dress for a chic modern twist. Italo is such a fun and versatile style to take your wardrobe from day to night…it’s the wear with everything sandal’, says Lauren.

Annabel is heading home to New Zealand for the holidays to visit her family.

For her travel days she is choosing to wear Oracle White, the trending double platform sneaker which pairs well with just about anything. ‘A clean, white platform sneaker, how can I go wrong? With packing light in mind, I know Oracle will pair well with my entire capsule wardrobe and ensure I feel put together for any event’ .

In her suitcase she is also packing a gift for her Mum; a pair of Frankie in Black/Cream (a style which is proving to be a fan favorite this season). ‘I showed these to Mum and she loved them! Incredibly lightweight they give her some added height whilst being so comfortable and supportive. The chain and quilt detail add such a unique touch, I think everyone will be putting in an order on Christmas Day!'


During her trip she is also planning on catching up with friends for dinner. For a dressier evening look, Annabel is packing a pair of Treacle Cream, a fresh light weight cut out platform derby with a lace cut out upper. ‘With unpredictable weather in NZ, Treacle is the perfect cut out lace up, incredibly comfortable and cool. The luxurious cream leather is so nice against a summer glow and pairs well with brights and neutrals.’
