Prepare yourselves. I have been shopping in Zara.
This happens every year. The Spring/Summer collection hits the stores and I promptly buzz around buying it all up. Or at least planning to over multiple shopping trips.
So far I have amassed a skirt, a couple of tops and this pixellated print coat.
If I had seen this on the website I wouldn't have ordered it. It looks so boring and muted in the product shots. Seeing it on the rack though is a different story. It's a pretty pastel toned jacket with a print that is interesting enough to make it stand out.
Judging by the fact that I have been wearing it pretty much every day since I bought it I would have to say that it has become the definitive piece for my Spring wardrobe…until I go in and buy something else that is :)
I wore it today with my standard jeans/white top uniform. The white top by the way is New Look and is so sensational (it's one of those faux silk style tops) that I am contemplating buying a back up.
I know what you're thinking - who buys bloody back ups of tops? Well apparently I do - or at least I am seriously thinking about it.
I got given a 300 AED voucher (about £55) for New Look at a recent press day and I was REALLY SURPRISED by how much good stuff I got in there when I went to cash it in. I'd always dismissed the Dubai stores as a bit rubbish, with them seeming to stock the worst of the collections but maybe things have changed!

With all this amassing of new "stuff" I am thinking of doing another clear out. I always give a ton of clothes to charity at regular intervals but I have also thought about dabbling in Depop - would any of you recommend it or should I go the good old eBay route? Let me know!
And Happy Easter! I am at work tomorrow working on a report but think of me when you are eating your Easter eggs won't you? :)
