April

April

April by garderob

I've been looking for new sandals for quite a while now, even though I won't be able to wear them yet. I came across these the other day, and I'm picking them up later today. I think they might be just what I've been looking for. When the temperatures rises I always find myself drawn to crazy printed pants like these, even though they are less boho than the ones I usually go for. 
I've been a terrible blogger for quite a while now, it seems like I never find the time to write a decent post.  I'm thinking that I should get a Flickr account instead. We'll see. So, for now, here's what I'm wearing today!


Etoile dress/oversized sweater, J Brand jeans and Isabel Marant bracelet and boots.

    1. Well, I got the ones in the collage. Very pretty, but the ankle strap was weird looking and uncomfortable - they had to go back! The search continues!

  2. I love your Etoile oversized knit! Is it Calixo?

  4. Too bad about the sandals because they looked cool and tough at the same time.
    On the same subject, I'm getting obsessed with the Isabel Marant Merry sandals in black. I hope I'm not too late and that they're not already sold-out in my size. Anyway I wouldn't even be able to wear them just yet as the cold is back along with rain...

    1. I know, I was so disappointed! I love the Merry sandals, I want the cagnac ones. Last year in April I was actually able to wear sandals, but now I'm still wearing boots and a wool coat. So depressing!

  5. Do the Margaret Howell sandals not appeal to you? I'm really drawn to those, but this type of shoe has a tendency to make me trip up when walking - always have to stick to a sandal with a slight heel, sadly.
    Love how you built around those 'crazy' printed pants, too! (and the lovely dark denim in the second pic).

  7. So much Marant, I love it! I really love her SS12 printed denim, it's the perfect balance to wearing a mostly solid outfit! - Aliya :)

    1. I've never tried them, but I've been wanting to for a long time, they seem so nice! They're not available here. I was able to get Isabel Marant's Merry sandals on sale, so I'm all set now! Thanks for the tip!

  12. Please don't get a Flickr account instead. It's always nice to have a blog post from you, however short it may be! :)
