The Zara Mint Green Coat and NOTD!



Say a big hello to one of my favourite items of clothing at the moment!

I tried this on about 3 times in Kuala Lumpur, each time trying not to love the colour or the unique jacquard fabric. It's one of those magical items of clothing that seems to look good with literally every single thing that you wear. So I gave in and I bought it. As I said before, Zara ruins me this time of year.

1 week later though and it's zero regrets. It's very light in terms of fabric so is the ideal "throw on" when needing to protect against arctic air con or to feel a bit more modest.

I slung it over my Topshop dress today when I popped out to get my nails done. Gosh what a hard day I have had! :p

Thanks to Simone for the pictures!

Talking of nails, the only colour I could even think about getting applied was Essie's "Borrowed and Blue". I am a little bit obsessed with this shade. It's a pale light blue, goes with most of my clothing choices these days and is also extremely wearable. The paleness of it makes it just about passable for work - or at least this is what I tell myself :)



I had some questions on Instagram about my bunny ring (seen on the left hand in the above picture). This was from etsy and cost about $9 (it's now $13 - Link!). I do love it but you should know that this is my second one - the first one broke on the third wear. Let's hope that the cuteness of this one lasts a little bit longer than it's predecessor!

Hope you have/had a great Saturday!

We will see you tomorrow :)

    1. Dubai is the best place I have ever lived for indulgent grooming. There are so many places you can go to for nails/hair/everything else. And it's cheap! When I lived in the UK I got a manciure and a humiliating department store threading session at the very most! :)

      It's not going well at all, just as we thought she was getting it, she's playing up and being a right little bugger in the nights! We'll get there though...I hope! :)

      I eyed it up from afar and wasn't sure at first glance but then I tried it on (many times!) and I just couldn't stop thinking about it. It's such a great colour. Highly recommend :)

  32. Jacquard is one of my favorites trends because I feel like it can be used season to season. And the pale blue is my most loved color at the moment, I was always a lavender/lilac girl but I love when something new makes an unexpected impression. You look great !
