The Lust List | 12 Summer Dresses

Despite the fact I have officially named this month 'doom 'n gloom' June - it hasn't managed to put a dampener on summer wardrobe (yet). Even if I er, mighta not had a chance to wear it quite yet.

Forever on the hunt for pretty 'n sweet, easy to throw on summer dresses though, Urban Outfitters has become my new found destination for my holiday style. Just take a look at these swish dresses, they'll be sure to have you in a summer daze - I'll take the lot.

Long gone are the days of scanning and squinting through endless ASOS pages, you da boss UO.

Style | Groundbreaking Zara Discoveries

Following on from my major Zara lusting earlier in the week (damn, all those sale snips killing my bank balance). Here I am dressed head to toe in the Zara purchases I made pre-sale, that obviously all got reduced a few weeks later. Despite this mega eye rolling situ, I made some rather ground breaking discoveries. You ready?


Frayed Cotton Coat  Gold Flat Sandals  Embroidered Sleeve Top - all sold out online, but available in store! 

Skinny Jean - Zara 

The hunt is officially over. I repeat. The hunt for the perfect pair of jeans is over.

Whilst my hips (and thighs) do not lie, the Zara premium jean line have finally answered all my denim woes. Fitting like an absolute dream, after trying on approx. eight thousand pairs in my local store, I did not have to size up (-mic drop) or grunt furiously whilst jumping up and down to get them on. Thank you, god bless.

With frayed hems, a little distressing and a summer blue hue, these mid-rise style neither dig uncomfortably or having me frantically pulling up every other step, they have a fair amount of stretch and they look a hella lot expensive than they were. I'll take every pair.

Next, we move on to the blouse trend of the moment. Giving the bardot blouse a run for it's money, the cold shoulder trend has become my latest love. They cover up my niggling hatred of my upper arms all whilst being super pretty and dainty. Coupled with the sweet embroidery on this Zara addition, I'm smitten. Currently swooning over this Topshop number.

And finally, this pale blue tweed-ish summer coat is everything to me. It makes me feel super sophisticated and with jeans and t-shirt, I can chuck it on and hey presto - I look like I've attempted to make an effort. A massive winner in my books.

The Lust List | 20 Zara Sale Snips Under £30

The Zara sale gets a bad rep - it barely knocks off any discount and it's always late to the party. This season however it was pretty darn' good. It snuck up so quietly that by the time I furiously logged on, adding pieces to my basket, it was selling out quicker than my stubby fingers could manage.

Despite the fact I had also already indulged in a 'lil Zara spree at the beginning of the month, to then find it all discounted a week later (oh how I hate you fashion gods) - I'm willing to over look this because whilst the mad rush has gone, there are in fact a number of decent summer staples left that won't make your purse quiver. Here's my edit of the top 20 Zara sale snips under £30:

Poplin Top (£15.99)  Frilled Sleeve T-Shirt (£9.99!)

Tunic (£25.99)  Stripe Top (£7.99)

Mini Skirt (£15.99)  Embroidered Mini Skirt (£12.99)

Embroidered Top (£12.99)  Flounce Skirt (£17.99)

Frilled Top (£9.99!)  Peplum Top (£15.99)

White Dress (£25.99)  Lace Dress (£19.99!)  Off The Shoulder Dress (£19.99!)  

Frilled Top (£17.99)  Lace Trim Top (£19.99)  Frilled Top (£15.99)

Sandals (£22.99)  Leather Sandals (£12.99!!)

Sling Back Heels (£29.99)  Nude Heels (£12.99!)

Now would you look at that, I now have a basket of 10 pieces totalling at £140. Whoops. Not bad if you're looking to restock your holiday wardrobe without breaking the bank!
