I don't really think any of these items necessarily scream "springtime" or "summertime", but this type of thing is my jam right now. I was in Zara the other day and when I was waiting for the cash I looked down to see that not only was I wearing only black and white, my scores awaiting purchase were also strictly of the same colour scheme. Am I boring you yet? I think you should be grateful that this wishlist includes more than just black and white - this took much deliberation and consideration. You're welcome.
Cropped Trousers with Front Pleat + Asymmetrical Jacket
Blush. See, not black or white! Since becoming a blonde, blush has intrigued me. I recently purchased a dress, and would happily rock this casual summer suit in the soft pink hue!
Reversible Embroidered Jacket
Bombers are everywhere this spring, and Zara is all over it. I recently purchased a sheer black checkered bomber from them, but this reversible one is where it's at. While I admit I only really like this side of it (the other side is red), it's beautiful enough to buy just for this design. Stunning!
Tube Dress with Lace Top
I've been stalking this dress for months. I have nowhere to wear it - the sheer/perforated top is a tad too risqué for the office, but it does have a certain "done-up" feel to it. If it makes it to the summer sale, I'm going to be all over it.
I've been looking for the perfect 90s style slip dress, and this just may be a contender. It's got a bit of glam to it, but the simple shape keeps it from being anything but chic. It's simple and sexy and I'm all about it.
Damn, Chloë. Back at it again with the blush.
It's not so much just the top here, as it is the entire outfit. It looks so breezy and easy and comfy, while still being damn fashionable. I think I'll be seeking this one out on my next Zara outing, if only to try it on!
Flat Leather Slipper Shoes
I admit I've never owned a pair of shoes like this before, so I'm mostly just curious how it stays on one's foot when one walks. They're just very sleek and minimalist, which is my aesthetic right now (or at least, what I'm trying to have my aesthetic be).
Flat Shoes with Metal Heel Detail
I always find myself halfway through the summer, with crappy sandals. I don't know how this always happens, but my sandal game is seriously lacking. I love that they're black (of course), but the metallic heel adds a little something extra.
Do you have anything on your spring/summer wishlist from Zara? Their SS16 collection is pretty bomb!

Please accept my apology in advance, but you're going to have to get used to all of this black you've been seeing on me lately. It's a bit of an epidemic. My closet has been infected. Almost all of my non-neutral pieces have been tossed in the donation bin. Is this a version of the teenage goth phase? But when you're 26?
I will admit this black wool sweater will be retired soon, but my gosh did we ever have a good run this winter. So cozy, so slouchy, so black.
You're also seeing my newfound love for white sneakers here on full display. These are Zara, and I've got a new Adidas pair now. They are literally all I have been wearing.
Also please excuse the sorry state of my hair in these photos - I have since gotten my roots done and toned, so this yellow-headed business is no longer the situation. I've also recently gotten some new clip-in extensions that still need to be toned to match my hair, so keep an eye for a post or video or something on those.
