You might have remembered from last week that I promised to feature my Zara blush dress. Well here it is…
I bought this back in April and wore it recently to my friend’s birthday drinks. I paired the dress with black strappy sandals and my beloved chain city bag from Zara. I wanted a simple yet spring chić look that had a Carrie Bradshaw feel about it.
Blush is a simple colour to wear during the day and can be glammed up for the night. I’ve decided to show you how I would wear this dress for the daytime.
Blush can easily wash you out as it’s a neutral colour. I decided to wear bright orange nail varnish and a taupe lipstick to help enhance the blush tone and to lift the overall mood of the outfit and add a 70s colour scheme. I wanted a relaxed feel to the outfit so teamed this with my metallic sandals from also from Zara. (I’m digging these sandals at the minute- they’re featured with so many outfits recently and I don’t care.)
I was drawn to the sleeves of this dress and I love that it’s very top heavy and the bottom of the dress is cut really straight. This season is all about arm detail, and this adds attitude to a simple straight dress. I also think the triple ruffle layers on the sleeve sees the Victorian era meet contemporary street style luxe.
This is a simple and stylish look that will keep on giving, if you just play around with accessories, make up and your hair.
My sister gave me this Zara baby pink playsuit and It’s been sat in my wardrobe for months and only when I tried it on the other day I actually realised its potential and how much I actually really liked it.
Everything about this playsuit is soft, from the fabric to the cut. This was the perfect opportunity to mix this seasons favourite colour combination – pink and red.
As the playsuit is soft I wanted to oomph the attitude, therefore, I added a deep red lipstick and my occult silver choker from Topshop. This really allows the playsuit to appear edgier for the day and perfect for an evening out on holiday.
I didn’t want the look to be too much for the day, so I added my metallic sandals again which just keeps the look effortless.
I’ve loved blush and light pastel pinks for quite a few years now, but I’m really enjoying adding dark lipsticks and silver accessories for a real 90s feel.
What do you think to the looks? Is this something you’ll be trying this spring/summer?
