A Zest for Zara

Bowler Hat - Forever 21
T-Shirt - Zara
Shorts - Zara
Boots - Primark
Necklace - New Look

If I step into Zara and I don't buy anything, or at least want something, there is something seriously wrong! Due to Zara delivering new products to their stores twice a week, I constantly find myself in there at least once a week - definitely a shopaholic... 

Yesterday, while waiting for a train, I popped into Zara and made a few impulse buys in the form of some lovely lace shorts and the 'something very addictive' t-shirt you see in the pictures above. I kind of bought these separately but when I got home and tried them on I thought they actually looked really nice together. I've styled this with my bowler hat that I purchased last month in Glasgow and my black and gold boots from Primark. I'll probably need to wear some tights though since it's freezing here in Scotland!

Also loving how I look pretty tanned in these photos!

A Velvet Crush

Leggings - Asos
Tartan Shirt - Zara
Crop Top - Topshop
Frilly Socks - Topshop
Converse - JD Sports
Chain - River Island
Ring - Primark
Scrunchie - Unsure...had this for years!

Another week, another impulse buy! Once again I gave in to a tempting Asos sale item in the form of these black crush velvet leggings. You might have already noticed, velvet has made a revival, fitting in with the baroque trend which has emerged this Autumn/Winter and especially in the lead up to Christmas as we begin to see velvet dresses - perfect for a party outfit!

I decided to go for a more sensible option, opting for some leggings to keep myself cosy - a bargain price of £17.50 helped persuaded me even more. If you're looking for something which is a bit different, I would suggest adding some velvet as the change in texture can make something as simple as a pair of leggings that little bit more interesting. Here I've gone for a kind of 90's/grunge theme with a scrunchie, a baggy crop top and a tartan shirt.
