I Wore: Zara Boyfriend Blazer, Studded Clutch & New Leopard.

17 January 2012


I don't know how this Zara beige boyfriend blazer hadn't made it's way into my wardrobe sooner. It's definitely a new staple for me. As we head out of winter and into spring I think it'll be the perfect jacket to sling on over floral dresses. Expect to see it in way too many photos.

This weekend I took it on it's first outing when I went to meet friends for some casual cocktails. I paired it with with a leopard print blouse. Yes, I bought more leopard! I picked up the shirt from Zara too. In fact, not intentionally, I ended up being like a Zara advert, the clutch I chose to take was also....yep, you guessed it...Zara. I didn't think about it at the time but when I came to writing this post it suddenly dawned on me, oh dear, not cool. Having said that, there's nothing wrong with a little Zara love, it's one of my favorite stores, if you couldn't tell!

Quilted ballet flats - Russell and Bromley.
Beige Blazer, Leopard print blouse & Studded clutch bag - ALL Zara, ooops!
Black & gold accessories. Cheetah ring & studded cuff bangle - F21. Black feather necklace - Mint Boutique.
I had a lovely night out although I've never worn flats on a night out before which made me feel a bit odd. Normally I opt for heels but I'm always towering above everyone (including the men, haha!) in the bar. Since it was just casual drinks I thought I'd try a night of comfort, probably never try it again though, it just feels wrong to not wear heels in a bar. Do you know what I mean, do you ever wear flats to a bar?


Blog Award - The lovely Ulia Ali who blogs over at View From Heels gave me a blog award, yey! I'm so happy whenever someone mentions me as one of their favorite blogs! I never thought that would happen when I began my blog in August and had just a handful of readers! Ulia said some very kind things about me too, I'm so flattered. Thank you sweetie!


There are a few rules of the award. You should share some facts about yourself and then pass the award on to some others. So, since this is my blog and it's all about me, me, me....let's begin with...ME!

I am exceptionally child-like at times. Seriously...give me cupcakes, sweeties or balloons over flowers and truffles any day!  ~  My guilty pleasure is HP Brown sauce on toast. Not in keeping with my usual more gourmet choices but I blooming love it!  ~  I love all animals with the exception of monkeys because I got bitten by a wild one in Thailand. They thought it may have had rabies, but I'm pleased to say I am, to this day, rabies free. I have lived to tell the tale!  ~  I only ever use MAC make up, I'm addicted. I try other products but I end up never using them after the first week or so.  ~  I'm not a natural blonde. You already knew that though, right? Didn't you spot my roots?!  ~  I worked as a guest host on a radio station in Korea, in English, of course! I was The Love Doctor, haha! So send your problems through to me. I should state that I have absolutely no qualifications to do that whatsoever though!

That's all I'm giving away at the moment. Now, I pass this on to some wonderful ladies and blogger friends whose blogs I really enjoy reading. Go say hey to them at:

  33. Thanks for all the comments ladies, you're all so kind!

    I think it's one of my new fave outfits :) (with heels next time of course!)

    I've replied to a lot of people via email but some people who I wanted to reply to directly don't have their email address linked to their blogger account. So I just thought I'd mention it here so that everyone is aware of that in case they wish to link an email for comment replies :)
