Zara: One two three, red, yellow, green!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011




What I wore today: Zara stripe shirt (find item here), Topshop cupro shorts (find similar item here), Bardot boots (find similar item here), Electric Avenue bow (find similar item here), Sportsgirls bag, Diva bracelets, Topshop dog chain necklace, Yellowgoat "Perfect Match" necklace (find item here), MAC St Germain lipstick (find item here )

Hi all, this is me practicing to be an awesome soccer mom one day. See how I got the standing stance all ready and everything, and I got my bold coloured stripe shirt on so my little kids can see me in the crowd. Haha jokes. I took a walk around the park in the beautiful sun (did you guys know that Sydney is is WINTER?), and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

As much as I love H&M, I also love Zara, Australia just recently got its first ZARA store recently, and it was a massive event, the opening night! I remember seeing people lining up for metres and metres. It was so crazy we even had security guards up at the front with a clicker letting in some people at a time. Just like a famous nightclub. Well who can blame the people, when ZARA produces awesome striped shirts such as mine?

When I have kids one day, they better appreciate ZARA as much as I do. Maybe I should keep all my clothes in great condition so I pass it on to them? How awesome would that be? I'd be the greatest (soccer) mom in the world! Do you love Zara too?

Great look. I love Zara too - but I haven't seen one in NZ. When I lived in the Canary Islands it was ridiculously cheap, I used to buy SOOO much in there, especially in the sale!! Ahh the good ol' days!!

Well, in order to be a good soccer mom, you gotta have your children play soccer first. haha

I've actually did a little research on Zara and realized that they do zero advertising. Crazy how basically all I hear about Zara is through word of mouth and from fashion blogs. I'm more of a thrifter, but I definitely admire many of the pieces that come out of Zara.

And that striped shirt definitely suits you!

Yeah.. Zara definitely made quite a revolution when it started to open up in Europe.. like what maybe 15 years ago? Really changed the way people would dress up (seriously..). So of course I love it!

Gosh surf and sun in wintertime...how can you beat that?! I guess it's much like SoCal weather during our winters...funny how it's always our hottest months out of the year too!

Love your bright stripes...Zara's end of season sale is totally killin' the pocket, but so worth it!

Peace. Love. LOL!

You've got a cute soccer mom stance! I hope I look even half as cute as you do when I watch my son play baseball (most likely not since I take him so early in the morning). I really love your outfit here though. It's so vibrant and refreshing. Well done!
