{Fashion Monday} Zara Inspired outfit

Two weekends ago my little sister took me to lunch as my birthday present and then shopping where she picked me up a lovely red Zara dress and nice string top also from Zara.

I don’t often shop in Zara but I do like there clothes as they last a while but can be a bit pricey for my liking. But we were very fortunate that they had such a lovely sale going on in Oxford that we got the dress for half its original price and best part is it fit me like a glove.

The last two weeks have been the hottest we’ve expressed in the UK so far and I am loving it. Summer is truly here and I am making the most of it. The Zara dress has been perfect one to try out and style since my sister bought it for me.

I mentioned in Embrace the Heels post I shared last week that I am wearing more block heels these days than any other time and I am loving it. Block heels have become a favourite of mine and styling the Zara dress with block heels has been really wonderful.

I picked up another pair of block heels from Tesco’s F&F brand and I can truly say these are the most comfortable heels I have ever tried. They are higher than my ย normal block heels but since these have a platform they are even better.

When styling block heels, I am going for comfort over style. I know some of my readers mentioned they can’t wear heels but I think if possible you can substitute with wedges or platform block heels as they are so comfortable in most cases and still look stylish.

I have been wearing the Zara dress everywhere, paring it with blocked heels, my black tote bag and simple jewellery since the weather is too hot.

    That dress is gorgeous, the colour is absolutely beautiful! I struggle to wear heels, but I agree with you that block heels are much more comfortable and easier to wear

    I love most of Zara’s pieces but I hardly remember to shop at Zara. Don’t know why.

      Same here, when I do it’s because I am with someone

    I love the colour of that dress, nude shoes would look so perfect with this!

    Love that dress and the bags and heels ๐Ÿ˜€ Though I think I would prefer the heels in black ๐Ÿ™‚

    • July 31, 2016 / 2:28 pm

      I think black would look really nice too

  9. July 29, 2016 / 4:59 pm

    I’m one who needs to substitute with wedges. I can still be inspired by the look though!

    • July 31, 2016 / 2:28 pm

      I think wedges are good as block heels

  10. July 29, 2016 / 1:24 pm

    The only thing I have ever owned from Zara is handbags! The dress looks lovely and I am a massive lover of block heels, I have so many of them. I love the way you have paired the dress with the different accessories xx
