Lookbook: Zara Love


Why oh why does Zara torture me by not having a store in Seattle?  I love how San Francisco has two stores within walking distance of each other (and I always go to both in case I missed something at the other store).  And even with all the amazing shopping in New York, Zara is still one of my favorite stops there.  I just can’t help but love their always on trend but not too trendy pieces and although the price point isn’t super cheap, it’s still great for the quality and what you get.  At the very least can’t they have an online store?  I need my Zara fix!

I showed you all the fun bright pieces that I got from my last shopping haul at Zara and this little striped shirt was a definite “must have” when I spotted it on the hanger.  I don’t have anything similar to it and I just adore the colors.

Oh and I’m so excited to share with you guys that my sister recently started a blog!  Growing up I always wanted to wear whatever my sister was wearing and actually that still applies now but too bad she lives too far away to share closets.  If I can only convince her and her husband to move back to the west coast.  haha 😉  Anyway, I may be biased because she’s my sister but she is super fabulous, so check her out here!

***Happy Friday!***


It’s impossible to find anything similar but this top is really cute and comes in several colors.  Or you could try this cute Yumi Kim striped top.  Also, this striped ruffle tank from LOFT is adorable.

Did you see the Refinery 29 Reserve deal?  $150 for $300 at Rag and Bone!  I had to get the deal as they make my favorite skinny jeans ever.  I really want one of their bright color skinnies but can’t decide what color!  Should I get the mint, salmon, bright cobalt or kelly green?  Decisions, decisions!

Forever 21 Striped Cardigan

I always like to pair stripes with stripes and I don’t have a brightly colored stiped cardigan like this, it would look so cute with the yellow top. Or this bright stripe cardigan too.
Michael Antonio Love Me Pump
Yellow pumps just brighten up any outfit!  If you don’t want to spend a lot, these Michael Antonio pumps are a great choice, however, I do love the color and style of the Giuseppe Zanotti heels!  You can’t be shy when wearing yellow shoes, they attract a lot of attention! 🙂 

Yves Saint Laurent Arty gold-plated glass ring

Also, if you didn’t know already, Nordstrom is having their half yearly sale!  I’m not in town so I can’t shop in the store but I’ve been doing some online shopping and have ordered a few things that I can’t wait to get!  I got this adorable Joie Ruffle Sleeve Silk Blouse, I think it will look so cute with shorts or a skirt.  I also got this Marc by Marc Jacobs blouse is gorgeous for work paired with a slim pencil skirt.  And I had to add in these Alexis Bittar bangles.  I’ve always loved Alexis Bittar but couldn’t pull the trigger because of the price so I’m happy they are on sale!  Oh and the advantage of online shopping is using ebates so don’t forget to use them, they upped the Nordstrom cashback to 5%!

    A style-ish family! I just checked out her blog and can see fashion definitely runs in your family (starting with chic mom).

    Ah..it's 80 degrees out and I'm love, love loving the colors in this outfit. The yellow shoes and lapis ring bring out two of the best colors in that top. Unfortunately I've never found anything at Zara that comes close to fitting! I always see such cute pieces on 9to5chic but it's just such a tease.

    Love Zara too, love this outfit. I love that you mixed the stripes in the cardi with the shirt. Fabs! I don't have Zara store either here where I live. Bummer.

    Oh I can't wait to check your sister's blog. Heading over there right now. Have a great weekend!

    I remember seeing that top at the store and thinking it was great, yes I'm lucky to have one on a 30 minutes drive! Of course the pretty yellow pumps were to be worn, love them!

    So much shopping inspiration in one post! I'm always nervous about colorful shoes, unless they are flats, but now I think I need a pair of yellow pumps. They looks great on you!

    WHAT there's no Zara in Seattle?! You poor thing! Zara is one of my favourite stores! This outfit is so bright and cheerful, love it! I also like how you've been doing your lookbook photos lately – it looks just like a magazine spread with the text overlay.

    Hi Tiffany, as someone said above, Zara DOES have a webshop and your shirt is online too. Hope this gets you a little closer to having ZARA close to you.

    I like your top- it's colorful yet not so bright. So even if you're not going for color-blocking, it's something you can wear and keep in your closet for the long haul 🙂

    This is a cute casual look. I really like the yellow pumps and the top that adds a swirl of color to the look. I purchased my second pair of yellow shoes (although not pumps)last weekend. I'm trying to add more colors to my shoe collection.
