Something that you will learn about me quickly is that I am obsessed with all things Zara. I am guilty of buying over half of my wardrobe from there, but I am not ashamed of it one bit. You can always count on them to carry current trends and have great prices without sacrificing quality. In this post I put together three different outfits (each styled for a different occasion) with my absolute favorite Zara pieces
The first outfit is my newest Zara purchase: a black ribbed jumpsuit. This truly is the most comfortable article of clothing that I own. It feels like you are wearing your pajamas in public — it doesn’t get much better than that! It flows perfectly off the body with cropped length pants and a beautiful ruffle detail right above your waist. This jumpsuit is perfect for running afternoon errands or enjoying happy hour with your girlfriends. I paired this jumpsuit with my everyday go-to jewelry: my Marc Jacobs watch, Alex and Ani bracelets, and Madewell sunglasses (always my favorite!). For shoes, I opted for a casual espadrille lace-up platform sandal. If you want to make this jumpsuit even more casual, you could pair it with a pair of cute sneakers.

For the second outfit I put together a pair of striped culottes and a white off the shoulder ruffled blouse. This blouse is one of my favorites because it is very feminine and beautiful, although not very practical for raising your arms. The pants have a high cinched waist that ties, which is perfect with this top because it is so cropped. This outfit is ideal for a daytime date or a casual picnic with your girlfriends. It is a very breezy outfit, so it is perfect for staying cool on those hot summer days. That is why I decided to go barefoot for this outfit (I’m always searching for an excuse to not have to wear shoes). For jewelry, I simply went with a dramatic earring since the neckline is detailed with ruffles and I didn’t want to take away from it by wearing a necklace.
The third outfit is perfect to wear to work and then to dinner and drinks after. It is a great switch up from your typical black cigarette trousers. Also, this is a great way to add color to your work wardrobe, which always helps to brighten your day. This embellished blouse is absolutely gorgeous! I love how different it is from your typical button up. Sadly, this top is sold out, but I was able to find one quite similar. For the trousers, they have a super high waist and are a beautiful pastel pink color. They are cut like culottes (which as you can tell, is a trend I’m really digging right now) so they flow off of your legs making you feel nice and comfortable for your long work day. I didn’t pair any jewelry with this outfit because for one, I’m very minimal when it comes to jewelry, but also because I didn’t want anything to take away the focus of the embellishments on the blouse.
