The Zara Jacket

Well it's rare but I actually paid full price for something!  I managed to sell a few items from my wardrobe so took the plunge and ordered the jacket I loved so much from a few posts previous.  It arrived perfectly wrapped and I was in love all over again. 

The very same day I went on an impromptu mum's night out.  I wanted to go out but was tried and didn't feel like thinking too much about my outfit.  The jacket was the perfect solution - I literally added it to my jeans and breton I was already in (they weren't dirty from the day, promise!) changed to some ankle boots and added a colourful clutch.  It is a great lightweight cotton, just right for now when the temperatures are starting to drop and you need something else.  

Jacket & Jeans; Zara
T-shirt; Topshop
Clutch; Miu Miu
Boots; Ash 
The back embroidery detail is still my favourite part.  It just lifts the monochrome look and adds some colour and fun to it.  

NB the front flower needs a little light pushing into place after being boxed if you're ordering from the web.
I'm hoping it's going to be another piece like the little cotton cardi style one I purchased from them last year that really just adds to a basic outfit.  I like these sorts of pieces, they just don't require a lot of thinking.  This is the one from last year that I wore again today whilst working with a client.  It has washed so well and is so comfy to wear. 

Jacket; Zara

  1. Gorgeous detailing on both jackets Natalie. A statement jacket or two makes a great wardrobe addition doesn't it.
