Zara obsession is real

Oh my gosh, the weather here in the Netherlands is not something I’m loving. It has been snowing for a few days now and believe me, I HATE the snow and cold temperature. But today was a fun day! Not only because the snow is melting but I went to Rotterdam to have lunch with my parents @ Bertmans (the french toast is to die for BTW) and to get some stuff at De Bijenkorf.

I went for a casual outfit today. As it is still freezing, I knew for sure I wanted to wear a cosy sweater. As my closet is stuffed with sweaters and knitwear, it sure was a tough decision to make ;). I chose this vibrant red sweater from NA-KD with wide sleeves. I’m a sucker for wide sleeves as I think it gives a simple sweater something extra. What I love even more about these kind of sleeves, is that it looks really cute underneath a jacket. I know, it’s a really small detail but that’s what I love! The jacket I combined with this look is a grey, checkered coat. I love the pattern as you might already know and I am really into long jackets. I combined these items with a simple blue jeans and my biker boots from Zara with the pearls. To top it all off, I wore my Gucci Marmont as a crossbody. Just because this is much easier while taking care of a dog in a busy city haha. Yes, I brought my puppy with me to the city centre. It was quite the hassle but she’s so sweet and calm  that you literally wouldn’t even notice her. Once again though, it seems as if my dogs take away my shine each time they pose with me. Can’t blame them though, as they are my favorite things on this freaking earth… Oh I now just realize I have a serious Zara obsession. Imma go work on that, right away.

Would you wear this outfit? And do you share a Zara obsession with me?

I absolutely love matching designer items with basic (and more importantly, cheaper) items. I prefer to give my Gucci bag the center of attention, that’s what she deserves right ;). Personally, I think you’ll overdo it when you only wear branded clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I love brands but combining them with cheaper items is essential to me. My style is furthermore pretty casual chic. But to be honest, I like many different styles. Combining different items to match my own taste is one of the things I love to do!

For this particular outfit, I matched some high-waisted checked pants with a black turtleneck body. BTW, I have a severe addiction to turtlenecks, my Fall/Winter wardrobe is full of it. Just a fair warning. The shoes furthermore match my outfit and don’t draw too much attention to them. I’m not a sneaker type of girl, but I do like these Vans and the Adidas Superstars as you’ll see in my upcoming posts. The checked pants are quite out there so I therefore matched it with a simple, low-key top. It was furthermore super cold today so I wore my jacket from Ted Baker to keep me warm… This is one of my favorite jackets as this design, in my opinion, never goes out of style.
