Isabel Marant 'Bobby' Sneakers
I am so happy to finally be focusing on my blog again! To say it has been a long time since my last post is a severe understatement... There have been some huge changes in my life recently, the biggest being moving from my hometown of Christchurch all the way over to the big leagues - London! Having visited 8 countries along the way, I feel very blessed to have seen a bit of the world and am now settling down for the start of a new adventure.
Whilst on my travels, shopping was of course done (and probably a lot more than it should have!), and at the top of my wish list was the Isabel Marant sneakers I have lusted over for well over a year now. It took me a year to pluck up the courage to purchase my Dicker boots as shelling out that much for a pair of shoes took some getting used to. However, I don't regret them in the slightest, hence pushing me towards taking the plunge for another pair of IMs (how she makes such perfect shoes is beyond me). Although the sneaker wedge seemed like a passing trend to begin with, they are still around today and still selling like hotcakes so I figured I was safe in forking out a large part of my savings for them. I walked into an Isabel Marant store in Paris and came out only 10 minutes later with a large box in a beautiful canvas bag and a much smaller bank balance. They have been on my feet pretty much non-stop, they are unbelievably comfy and I just love the look of them. I have been styling them with dark skinny jeans and cosy jumpers but come summertime (which is a long way off in England), I will be trying them out with shorts and flippy skirts. Please leave a comment below with ways that you style them, I would love to know!
