SS16 wear is in full swing, and along with that have come a whole host of new summer silhouettes.
From off the shoulder to asymmetric to pyjama shirts, let’s be honest, we’ve all been shopping like mad. Zara are 100% ON.POINT. at the moment, and I’ve been stalking the TRF section in particular on the hunt for some beaut summer steals. I happened across this asymmetric number just before I set off for Budapest (where these shots were taken – travel post is coming shortly!) and I knew it would be perfect for wandering around in the sunshine and attempting to live a 100% Instagrammable life.
It’s available in blue stripes and white, but unfortunately both are sold out at the moment (legit check every day for the white version, I ain’t ashamed). I’ve provided the name and item number down below, so feel free to join me in desperate daily checks if you want to get your hands on it too. I mean, what’s not to love? There’s the gentle rebellion against the hugely popular Bardot with the one short sleeve, the single-layered frill detailing and the cropped (on a person of normal height) shape – it’s basically a summer silhouette dream.
There’s something very classic and feminine about this piece, so in a move against my usual intricate silver detailing, I opted for big statement earrings that made me feel like a poor man’s Audrey Hepburn wandering around in the Hungarian sunshine (not sure those things all go together but that’s how I felt ok). And when it comes to accessories, nothing is more classic than a Daniel Wellington watch. As you guys know I’ve been a fan of DW watches for an absolute age, and if you pop that name into my search bar you’ll see multiple posts pop up of all the different styles I’ve been lucky enough to love. As always, they’ve been kind enough to provide my followers with a 15% discount with the code PLUM15, but be quick because it expires on the 31st May!
