Whata-ya-got Zara?

And today I'm in every fashionista's staple high street store Zara checking out their new season collection.
Take a look as I road test (read: changing room test) the hell-outa it.

From top left, Crop top, Sandals, TrousersShirtJeans, Cargo pantsSkirt, Tshirt, Jacket, Sweater,  Top and Sandal, all Zara.


So, first up, the midi pleated skirt (£39.99, small). Friend or foe? This ladylike terror would normally make me run a mile, so I've paired it with a bright yellow sweatshirt (£12.99, medium) and my trusty silver Superga's to make it feel a bit more sunday brunch than sunday school. 
Plus any skirt that moves like an accordion bodes well with me.

Next up, the suck-your-tummy-in-top (£29.99, medium) which has a wonderful cut out bit juuuuust where your overhang sits. ( Note to self: not one to wear on McDonalds Friday). 
Paired with slim fitting white cargo pants (£39.99, small) - a slim, tailored cargo, a far cry from the cargo of my Spice-Girls-card-collecting days. 
Obviously down South upon the feet you will notice the Zara version of the Givenchy Birkenstocks. That's three brands for the price of one kids - go gettem....

The cargos were too good to let go of just yet, so I threw them on with this simple white blouse (£39.99, medium) complete with knotted sleeves, reminiscent of the beautiful knotted sleeves in the Chloe SS14 show I loved so much. Head to toe white makes me feel chic without even brushing my hair.

My penultimate picture in the big Zee brings you the perfect (and I mean PERFECT) ripped jeans  you've been searching for your whole life, but never quite found. Ripped jeans that for less than the price of a Pizza Express meal for two - without a voucher - (£39.99 size 10), will keep your bottom-half clothed all year long because you'll never take them off. 
Tshirt (£9.99, large) was pretty good too - worn in a large for that boxy effect and the printed jacket (£59.99, small) was my favourite kind of floral print - abstract enough that it's not too girly.

Final outfit - the awkward crop top and high waisted pant combo. I think we've established this trend just ain't for me, but I feel the need to show you a cute crop top every once in a while and therefore you're just gonna have to get used to my fupa. 
This embroidered crop top (£59.99, medium) would look amazing with a high waisted black voluminous skirt for a summer party. I've dressed it down with silky, sporty, high-waist trousers (£39.99, medium) for more of a casual summer kinda look.  Plus, these trousers, with any short of silk tank or shell top over them = pure minimalist perfection.
