Summer Layers, Zara Sale | OOTD

I feel like I may have a bit more than usual to chat about here - I hope you'll stick with me :)

I'll get to the outfit first... it's actually a thin sweater layered over a dress, and I'm really digging the faux drop-waist look it has created. I don't typically like this style on me, but I feel like it works here. Maybe it's the whole-lotta-leg going on? While I'm not entirely sure what led me to try this layering, I have to say I'm glad I did!

Okay, so we definitely have to talk about this bag. It's Forever 21 and looks almost identical to the Chloe Drew bag. This fact and my purchase of this bag are no coincidence. I'm a little obsessed with the Drew, but it's way outside my price range at the moment. So, I'm making do! 

My current "realistic" dream bag is the Gucci Soho Disco bag in navy. I've been stalking it online, but would really love to try it on in a store. I was able to try on the Chloe Drew at Nordstrom before they all sold out, and it cemented my love.

Shoes. I'm always a sucker for a Zara sale, and this summer was no different. These heels were pretty cheap and just spoke to me. They're surprisingly not horrific comfort-wise, which is a major bonus. I mean, I won't be running marathons in them but they're not bad. 

My final point here is about my hair - I have it in a blunt all-one-length deal right now, and I'm loving it. I'm going in for a colour (!!!!) next week, and I'm thinking of going lighter. Champagne balayage sort of thing. I may change my mind between now and then, but for now that's the plan!

  2. I love this outfit the best out of all your outfits (that I've seen). I think the monochrome school girl look works well on you Chloe.
