I must confess, I am addicted to Zara!! Hands down, it has to be my favourite high street store.
Anytime I go into Zara, without fail, I'll see loads of things love and take the maximum amount I can into the changing room. To be fair mind you, sometimes the things I love, I don't love so much on as I thought I did seeing it on the hanger. 

Above is some of my latest Zara purchases. I'm not afraid of colour and have a closet full of brights, neons.... the whole colour spectrum, but lately I've been more attracted to buying neutral, capsule collection pieces that I can mix and match.

The only thing I don't like about Zara is that sometimes new things will sell out fast and not come back in stock, for example, I've been after a pair of high-waisted white shorts with gold zips and have been hunting for them for weeks now but can never find them! A kind store assistant, wrote the code down for me so now it's a case of a daily check on the website to see if they appear again. 

Today, I saw a beautiful lime green suede over-sized clutch bag but there was only one and it was marked. I went to order it online and they only have it in yellow or blue so this is another thing I need to keep hunting for! 

Remember these Louis Vuitton pumps with the metal covered toe detail?

Check out these almost identical Zara beauties:-

These shoes are simply stunning! They are the like a pale blush pink shade and feel like soft suede and cost £49.99 but they sold out almost immediately!  Love these, perfect and classic!

 I'm looking forward to wearing all my new stuff and teaming the neutrals with pops of colour like my neon yellow Cambridge Co Satchel or my bright blue J Brand skinny jeans etc

Happy shopping xx


  1. Hearing so much good stuff about zara lately, I need to check it out! And u have a Cambridge satchel? Sigh, jell!

  2. You should check Zara out! Yes, after much deliberating over what gorgeous colour to get, I decided on the neon yellow Cambridge Satchel and I just love it! It's the perfect accessory to brighten up your outfit.

  3. I need some two-toned heels! they are so ladylike :)
