Much as I love blogging it has had its pros and cons. Cons mainly being I am always verging on being skint from seeing and buying gorgeous clothes modeled by my favorite blogging friends, and pros being that I have been exposed to lots of other fabulous brands that I may not have ventured to try in the past – basically resulting in the con. Thank goodness for eBay hey so I can constantly recycle my closet! Anyway my favorite new retail lust is Zara. I’ve always known they were in Atlanta but never bothered to venture in opting to stick with my trusty, quality brands like J.Crew, Boden, AllSaints and H&M. Zara is a tad pricier than H&M but is always spot on trend and being a trouser girl they always seem to have plenty to offer for me. I love how they are constantly rotating their stock. Their sizes are hit or miss but I’m learning to figure them out so I can order online with a little more confidence and benefit from items that haven’t been tried on 20 times, plus they offer free shipping. In the past week or so their new collection has been filtering into stores and online, and I ordered these fabulous TRF snake print trousers which arrived yesterday. They are DIVINE. They are a gorgeous blend of neutral colors – lots of taupe, blush and nudes which means you can wear them with anything from a white shirt to a pink tee. They have ankle zips and, on my legs, finish neatly at the ankle. I can’t tell you enough how thrilled I am with them not to mention they were just $59.90!
I just ordered the snake skin shirt – not to wear with the pants – that might be overkill – but as I love the colors and pattern so much I thought the shirt would be great with jeans – black or blue denim. I am truly embracing the animal print trend this season – though I can’t avoid it even when only Bet Lynch and I are wearing leopard print.
Today it is hot, hot, hot and I’m taking it easy in the air conditioning. I find this heat really exhausting so I don’t plan on doing too much today except for a fun dinner with the family and then watching the Olympic Games opening ceremony. Staying in has allowed me to enjoy the comfort of jeans again and I am wearing my Primark floral jeans – best bargain of the year at 5 GBP, along with a sale bargain from Zara – a lovely pink linen t-shirt which incidentally will look great with the new pants! All paired with my trusty Tory Burch musk Eddie ballet flats – the best nude shoes I have. Here’s to a fun weekend y’all and yes I’ll be cheering Team USA and Team GB – I think that is allowed:)
Zara is the one shop that never fails – urm apart from the last 2 times I’ve been and left the store empty handed – UNHEARD OF IN 8+ years of shopping there!
They have crept their prices up as their popularity has soared but even still, they are a good decent store and I love the fact that at 5ft 9 – their trousers are sometimes too long for me!
That snakeskin shirt is heavenly
