Wearing my Zara Haul...

Wearing this outfit today was a bit of a mistake.

I love it but the weather is now officially "hot" and I was wearing a serious amount of sweat along with this Zara outfit.

The jacket is my favourite part. Yellow and white check in a shape that reminds me of classic Courreges - or this season Louis Vuitton. It's impossible to feel sad in this - it's such a bright, happy print. I love it.

The jeans were a total surprise. I tried them on in, expecting them to not fit properly, as per my previous experience with their denim, but they are so flattering and comfortable. God bless stretch!





Blouse: Zara - old
Jeans: Zara - Link!
Jacket: Zara (I can't find this online but it's definitely in stores!)
Shoes: Zara - Link!
Bag: 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli - Link!
Sunglasses: House of Harlow

If I am honest this has been a pretty good week for shopping. Many lunchtime expeditions to Zara and Forever 21 resulted in some great finds.

I particularly love some jeans I picked up in Forever 21 - these rose printed ones that I Instagram'd and this ombre finish version that will be premiered very soon! :)

My usual "photographer" is back now so I will be able to wear and share them with you properly!  I wish I had the balls to go outside with a tripod and photograph myself solo but I always feel like I need a partner-in-crime to make the whole OOTD experience just a little less embarrassing :)

See you tomorrow!

  5. Oh, I totally hear you on the no photographer issues. My husband travels quite a bit and my blog is often left vacant for far too long (sigh).

    I do love your jacket! It's so cheerful and spring!

  37. that jacket is SO summery! it's bright and fresh and just so perfect for the warmer weather we're receiving at the moment! unfortunately i don't think i could pull it off but it looks great on you! i'm not keen on wearing jeans because i just don't think they are flattering on me but these look so lovely that i think i'll have to try them on when i'm next in a store! and that bag is just wonderful! i am becoming ever envious of your bag collection and need to take the plunge to buy myself a designer bag!
