Hot Stuff: ZARA

Right, so last week I gave you the hot stuff I checked out on Asos. This time I give you Zara. 

I really mean it when I say I'm a die - hard Zara fan. Seriously. I can spot a Zara piece instantly when I cross someone in the street, not because I have a particularly great memory (I have in fact have the concentration span of a small flea) but just because I probably wanted to buy it for myself at one point. 

I honestly think Zara is such a revolutionary store, not necessarily revolutionary in their style but in the way that wearing a Zara ensemble instantly makes any woman, young or older, look classy, chic and smart whilst being bang on trend.

Although the quality isn't always top, their clothes are so wearable and don't cost a fortune. Saying that, going once a week like I used to do before I suppressed that little addiction wasn't necessarily a good idea for the bank account. Anyway, off we go.

This little top is really delicate and super wearable. It will instantly sophisticate-up a simple top and jeans ensemble.

One thing I often find tricky about spring is the transition between weathers. One moment you're wrapping yourself up in coats, scarves and jumpers under blankets next to the fire, and the next you're wondering whether you even need a coat to step outside. This light jacket is the perfect solution to this first-world-problem which is currently sweeping the nation. In fact, it would go perfectly with the little number before....Just in case you wanted to treat yourself.

The reason I love this skirt is because it literally screams summer. A casual-ed up version of a tennis skirt, it's perfect for a warm summer evening or even a balade in the city.

If you read my last post on the hot stuff on Asos you'll know how I feel about coral.... This skirt is a perfect waist clencher, giving shape to your body, without highlighting the revealing bits.

Sweet Lordy Lord I love this bag. The things I would do... Beautiful soft leather in perfect pastel pink, this makes any biker leather outfit feminine without being toe-curlingly girly either. If you could choose one thing to buy from this list.... this would be it.

I've been eyeing up this dress for a while. It's so elegant and can be worn either for a smart or casual event. Been invited to a summer wedding? I think this would be a beaut summery option. Would even be a gorgeous alternative to a bridesmaids dress I reckon.

Although I'm not a huge one for big in your face prints and crazy embellishments I like a nice bright colour to happy - up an otherwise plain outfit. This bright blazer would work really well with a crisp super white shirt and some jeans with heels.

If a girl's got a nice back she gotta work it. This is a super elegant, light and breezy number for the spring.

Hot Stuff: ASOS

I don't know about you but I have recently been devouring up all of the great stuff on Asos.

I tried to go with a theme for this but it didn't seem to work too well as there were so many things I wanted to get my hands on! Anyway.. buckle up and off we go. Before we start promise me you won't buy it all before my salary comes in...

Tone down a hard black leather by wearing this pastel leather skirt instead. A great look for the Spring either at work or a smart drinks party. Team that with some little white strappy heals and a light - weight white T-shirt and you've got yourself a sophisticated and sexy spring ensemble.

I am loving this beautiful pink pastel blazer. It's girly and fun It can literally go with anything as well. Tight blue or black jeans would work well with this. 

I've been looking for one of these short/jacket combos for a while and this one is really beautiful! Even just the shorts or jacket separately too works well.

If you prefer pink and have slightly more expensive taste then perhaps this one would appeal more...

I am obsessed with this mint colour and this dress is just perfect for those hot days where all you want is to wear a nice breezy number. Honestly, a lot of the time I don't even care what the actual item of clothing is, if its in mint, I'm nearly guaranteed to buy it. Now you've been warned, don't be surprised when I whip out my mint bum bag. 

Despite the fact that I shuddered a little bit when I saw it was Jack Wills, I am pleasantly surprised with the outcome of this cool bomber. A little print goes a long way (especially Liberty) so make sure to match this with an otherwise plain ensemble.

Now don't tell me your hands aren't itching to stroke this beauty. I love suede and this soft brown makes for a light, casual spring jacket for those slightly chillier evenings. I know its a tad expensive but my 21st birthday is coming up.... soooo.... for those reading....

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has ever wanted to not leave your bed and walk out of the house wrapped in your dressing gown. Those who can relate to this.... I think we've found a more sophisticated way to do this with this wrap number

Another stunning coat. Smart, sophisticated, simple and spring-y. A little bit spenny though but bearing in mind it's BA&SH you just know the fabric quality will be top.

I know we're heading into spring but I can't help but think of this jacket paired with a black turtle neck and a dash of red lipstick for a smart winter evening soiree. I must say this model pulls off this look spectacularly well.

Another smart jacket that would go perfectly with some tight black (maybe even ripped... o errrr) skinnies.

I've had a long standing romance with the colour coral. Great with a tan (not that I actually get one) and great as a nail polish colour. Embrace the summer-y vibes by popping this on for a nice evening out.

Once again a dash of coral... I just couldn't resist this mini skirt. Perfect length that's both sophisticated and a bit sexy to show off your bronzed legs.
