I love Zara and Aymeline Valade is one of my favourite models, that's a fitting combination for me to share Zara's April lookbook with you. How delicious are the prints and the blazers?

Isabel Marant: "You want to look good but you don't want to spend too much time on it. I always go to things that make me feel comfortable. When I open my cupboard I need some clothes: jeans, flat shoes, a sweatshirt, jumper or t-shirt, a good jacket. I don't need some clothes to go to awards or whatever, because it's once a year."

Today, it's a public holiday in South Africa (Freedom Day for those foreign readers who don't know) and tomorrow it's a school holiday so that means it's a long weekend for me. At the moment, I'm away in the country side but that doesn't mean I'm offline. I just spotted Ali Golden on pinterest and I decided to quickly share it with you.
" Locally produced in San Francisco, reflect the true understanding of the feminine silhouette with a nod to the sheer and textural, the collection plays with nuances of draping and structure to create timeless, essential pieces"
