Today has completely ran away with me - mainly because I've been editing my new video which is due to go up tomorrow. Im so happy with it and I cant wait to share it with you guys. I sometimes get stuck in these editing holes where I can think of anything else apart from finishing up an edit! I've hyped it up now so it wont be that good. Oops.

Im one of those people who doesn't like Zara, I just dont get the hype. I very rarely see anything in store than I like so I tend to just not bother. However I saw someone wearing a dress I liked and one thing led to another and a Zara online order happens. Boy was I pleased with it though. One item I got was this mixed print tunic which I've had so many compliments on since wearing. It's classic Breton stripe style with tropical print sleeves which is just too adorable. I also bought a little blue bag which is just big enough to fit the essentials in so saves me having to lug my life around with me! I paired it all with my favourite Topshop skaters and it was the prefect step into spring outfit.

  1. oh that dress is lovely. right now, zara has lovely pieces in stock but i think the quality is really poorly for the money you pay. the few zara pieces i got always broke for some reason.

  13. Those sleeves are so awesome. They add an extra layer of spice to what would have otherwise been merely a casual, simple look!

  16. I really love that dress. I'm not massively fussed over Zara either; I find them to be...maybe office casual, like smart dress where as I like a bit of a grungey look. That dress though...

    LOVING that Monki jacket too!

  26. I love the contrast of the two prints on the dress. And such a cute little bag to complete your look! You definitely picked some great choices from Zara, it's refreshing to not see the usual Zara-esque pieces that everyone is so into these days.

  58. I honestly never realized how difficult making Youtube videos is until I tried it. Before I started making personal videos, I'd take videos of other people or events and post them I find that way more fun. :) Loved your shoe video :)
