Outfit details: Boy. by Band of Outsiders shrunken oxford shirt, J.Crew sweatshirt, Rag & Bone shorts, 80%20 Molly sandals
These sandals are so comfy, especially with the hidden wedge for some heel cushioning, I was running all over town in them…literally. I wore this outfit to go house hunting this weekend (we haven’t found the one yet…the search continues!) I like the boyish look of the Molly sandals with these Rag & Bone cargo shorts, and it would have been too easy to overcommit to a safari look, but I wanted to feminize it with a pop of bright pink.
Bag Raiders is a synth-pop house duo of DJs Chris Stracey and Jack Glass from Sydney, Australia. This song has been my anthem for welcoming in spring. It’s the perfect beat for cruising on a warm orange day with the windows rolled down and wind in your hair. The track also features vocals from electroboy Dan Black.
Check out the music video directed by Fleur&Manu, and produced by Division. It makes you want to cancel all your plans and go on an adventure…with a monkey.
Katy Atlas of style blog Sugarlaws was snapped wearing our Yasha Polynesian Blue wedges! The platform and cushioned footbed make it extremely easy to walk in these shoes. The Yasha in Polynesian Blue will be available on our site in April but you can find the style in Red at Anthropologie.
Our Edie open-toe loafer is the best transitional shoe for Spring. If you’re just not ready to commit to showing off all of your toes…what about two of them? They are my favorite new shoes and are also featured in this month’s Nylonmagazine! They look perfect paired with skinny jeans or bold-printed leggings. Our Edie in Black is now available at Solestruck.
A long day around town requires comfy footwear, and these boots were made for walking. I wore my Pepper Black ankle boots to brunch with friends this weekend and then to a meeting with a florist for my upcoming wedding. Here I styled them with bright jeans. The classic shape and cute brogue-detailing make these booties easy to pair with popular spring trends like pastels, brights, or patterned jeans. I should also mention that there’s a 2-inch hidden wedge in these shoes too!
I’m such a fan of Allo Darlin’ and am so excited for their upcoming full-length entitled Europe, which will be out on April 17. In support of the new album, the band will also embark on a US tour. If they come to a town near you – please go! I’ve seen the band once before and it was infectiously fun!
“Capricornia” is the first single from the eagerly anticipated second album from Allo Darlin’. For those of you wondering exactly what “Capricornia” is all about, songwriter Elizabeth Morris explains, “Capricornia is the area in Queensland that I’m from. It has imaginary state lines, roughly around the Tropic of Capricorn, which runs directly through my hometown. There’s a nice 70s monument that marks the spot where the line passes, out on a lonely dirt road where all the kids learn how to drive. My family have lived in this area for over 6 generations but none of my generation remain. It’s a beautiful place. Musically, when we first discussed the album with our producer, I suggested that the feel of Europe should be somewhere between “A New England” by Kirsty Macoll and “Cattle and Cane” by The Go-Betweens. I think this song is the closest to that.”
Enjoy the new video!
