[Lookbook 04.27.2012] April rose
"Love is a many-splendored thing. It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring." Haha! After coming up with a title for this post I suddenly just thought of this Frank Sinatra ditty. Yes, I do know a couple of oldies and now I need to get that song out of my head.
We don't have spring here, though, and right now it's hot as hell. So I thought of sporting some blooms today, mostly roses. And unlike the blooms I sported last February, the floral print I have today is more pronounced. The flowers, however, are presented in some rock & roll-inspired fashion and not in a girly kind of way, so it's all good.
Needless to say, the shirt goes perfectly with black jeans. Boots or Chucks would have been excellent footwear choices but I picked gray today because I didn't want everything to be in so dark a shade. It's summer after all! Besides, I realized I haven't worn them in a while. And lest I fall into a complete monochrome trap, I wore a camel leather belt, argyle socks, and some beads in lieu of a watch.
Enjoy the weekend, y'all!
V-neck shirt and high-cut sneakers (both Zara); jeans and bead-bracelets (all Topman); belt (Emporio Armani); socks (SM Department Store).
