It is the middle of August and the height of the summer, and that means its finally the time of the year where you can wear all those really beautiful summer clothes that have been sitting in your closet for the last year. But it also means time for summer shopping!
Prior to heading off for my family’s summer holiday, I did some fun shopping for warm weather clothes that I could take with me. I hit one of my favorite shops, Zara, because they have stylish and good quality clothes but that aren’t stupidly expensive. I know that I can find some really fashionable items there and always leave the store with more than I intended to buy originally.
So what did I get? Well I bought a beautiful and easy to wear shift dress (below) that when I put it on just looked so stylishly effortless. It’s light and airy which is great for the hot weather.
I also added to my growing shoe collection with a very simple pair of white strappy sandals. This style is all the rave right now with the designers, but I found the same in Zara which were a lot cheaper. They are really summery and go with anything, and look particularly stunning with the dress above.
I also bought some simple tops that can be thrown over jeans or shorts which are also effortlessly chic. For me I like to look good and to dress up but I still want to be comfortable and I don’t want it to be too much effort. That’s why I love pretty blouses and shirts because without doing much more than a bit of accessorizing, you can take an outfit to the next level. So the tops I bought were in vibrant colors, because it is summer after all.
I think shopping for summer clothes is one of the most fun reasons for shopping because the clothes are really pretty and feminine, plus the stores are full of color!
