I bought this cape from Zara about a month ago. I thought that it would be perfect for a trip to New York (in January I might add!) that I was planning.
This would have possibly ended up being the coldest holiday of my life (this thing doesn't even have sleeves FGS) so it's probably a good thing that work projects have come up and I will now have to begrudgingly reschedule the trip.
So while reality soap stars are pictured in the Daily Mail lounging in Dubai with swimwear on, I am prancing around in knits, boots and capes :)
To be honest I only wear this cape at night because believe it or not, it does actually get a little chilly and this is the perfect piece because it's not as heavy or as protective as a coat and so warms me up...but not too much. I love the shape and flow and turn into a bit of a whirling Dervish when I get it on.
The boots and the jumper are also Zara - and new.
Now the jumper is fine..she says as she can feel her skin itching beneath it.
It is long line, has pockets and a flattering funnel neck but the material is not the best. It's not scratchy exactly - it's just not soft and a reminder that I should probably avoid Zara when it comes to knits. It rarely works out. When it comes to footwear though? Different story because the boots are my new love!
Chunky, Alexander Wang-y and with the feel of a well-made high-end boot, I am so, so happy with the impulse purchase.
I think they might look a bit crappy in the picture below but trust me they are soooo (apparently lots of "o's" are required") amazing in real life.
They are also comfortable - the heel is low - and haven't caused me any grief when it comes to rubbing/blisters. They are definitely sturdy and maybe not a seductive shape but for me: pointed toe + high walkability rating + good quality leather = win!!! Seeing as the sales are coming, I think these are definitely something to keep an eye out for.

I have been so very boring with my clothes lately - I just want to live in black, white and grey - so I haven't felt like it warranted an outfit post but then I think, maybe people won't mind that I show these dull ensembles because most of us don't want to wear wacky prints or colours every day of the week and it's really okay to dress simply, rotating old (and new) staples and going more for comfort over anything else. Yep, I just know that there are
PS. I have had some questions about the NARS foundation review I posted the other day. I had to temporarily take it down as although the PR agency (who sent me the foundation) were initially informed that it was okay to talk about the product, they were then informed that it was not. So it's been hidden for a couple of weeks. I'm pretty sure its already been indexed by Google and read by many of you which makes it a slightly pointless exercise but nevertheless, if you made it here to read it then you just got an exclusive ;)
