It would be a gross understatement to say I've been on a bit of a Zara kick lately. It definitely didn't help (or did it?) that we shopped at a Zara in each city we visited on our trip (that makes four, including the pre-travel Zara shopping spree I went on in NYC.. yes, I'm judging myself too). That being said, my focus was on "pieces"- those classy items in your closet that are almost timeless, classic, and fashionable but not too trendy. Think shoes, bags, jackets, blazers, statement necklaces, etc. These are my favorite things to shop for in the colder months, when I find myself covered in layers anyway. 

The bag above started it all, when I saw it on Sincerely Jules. I love the entire outfit, but it was the red bag that made me melt. I would've loved to buy it in the red, but of course I went with the safe black option. Still, I love that the bag is so wearable and a fun way to make the usual jacket & scarf combo a bit more exciting. 

I'm still in love with so many things at Zara, including this studded camouflage shirt, these printed trousers, and this embroidered skirt. If you haven't seen Zara's fall collection yet, definitely try and take a peek! Where have you guys been shopping recently?


The Puffer Vest / Nice, France

HI! All caps because it feels so good to be back to blogging! The month of October was a huge blur for me. Between settling into my new apartment, catching up with friends and family, and a 10 day trip to London and France, it's been nothing but exciting! There is so much that I've been wanting to share on the blog but haven't found the time to. Stick with me and I promise there will be lots of new purchase posts, skin care hauls, apartment photos, holiday baking, etc! Enough excuses, I'll start with an outfit I wore while visiting Nice, France.

Yup, thought I'd end this post with a ridiculous picture.

Hope you guys have all been doing well and if you live on the East Coast, made it through Hurricane Sandy (and I guess the Nor'easter that I am currently witnessing through my window too?). 

As always, thanks for reading! More travel posts to come! 

ps- A big thanks to Alyssa & Rona who were such patient photographers throughout the trip!
