Zara Sale Blazer

Ever since my local dry cleaner (not mentioning any names!) destroyed my beloved Zara off white blazer it has left a void in my wardrobe.  Right there, next to multiple black blazers (addicted? me? no!), was a gap that needing replacing....

Enter new sale purchase from Zara :)

This is everything I want in a blazer, well cut, comfortable and has a little stretch in it so the sleeves stay up if I need them to.  I actually almost bought this full price a month or so ago, so very pleased that I didn't! Don't you just hate it when you find half the things you bought full price a few weeks previously there on the sale rails? Nothing more frustrating!

I love pairing a lighter coloured blazer with darker jeans and favour this combination for when I'm wanting to feel a little more 'sophisticated' and less 'here's me in my Nike Airmax and jeans...again' ha! 

Outfit Details

  • Sunglasses - Prada (discontinued now I believe but they are a cat eye tortoiseshell shape and many other brands do these kind of sunnies)
  • Shirt - Topshop - bought last season but they're doing a similar one this season HERE
  • Jeans - Citizens Of Humanity
  • Blazer - Zara - I can't seem to find this online anymore but they do this kind of style every season and I've nothing but good things to say about Zara blazers! Get one! (you might be lucky and still be able to grab this one in store, it was £39.99) 
  • Ballet Flats - French Sole - get them HERE
  • Bag - Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 Damier - get it HERE 
Lipstick is Clinique Long Last Lipstick in 'Tangerine' .....a Summer favourite of mine!

And then....I stuffed my face with pasta at 'Ask!'

 'Ask' is a chain of restaurants in the UK that I usually don't gravitate to because I usually prefer to support local small businesses, however, I sometimes make an exception and the Italian food in Ask is pretty authentic and tastes really good.  They could with a few 'truffle' additions to the menu though (obsessed with anything 'truffle' at the moment!) 

That's it for now, hope you're all having a good week? I have been going to the gym a lot and consequently can't move much today, my arms and legs feel like lead! :(
