It is no secret that I love to shop for clothes, especially in one of my favorite stores, Zara. Now some people make ask why I need even more, but of course it’s a new season and with that comes new colors and styles. This season I am particularly excited to shop because I am in love with all the cream and pastel pieces that are starting to appear in stores.
I was very successful on this trip to Zara, with everything I tried on fitting well and looking amazing on me. I love those kinds of shopping days as it can really boost your confidence and make you feel so good.
However, I don’t blindly just go into a store and start looking around for items. That would take too much time, and you will so often miss something that was hidden or not in direct eye-line. Thus my strategy is that I will always online-shop first for inspiration. I never actually purchase the items online but I go through the online store and put things I like in the basket. This way I am able to see the entire collection quickly and easily, but I also have a list of the key items I will be looking for in the store when I do go.
I apply this strategy to whichever store I go to. It really does help make the whole process when you arrive much less daunting, and you have already had time to mull over pieces you aren’t sure about. This will help to reduce the amount of impulse buys that you will never actually wear. But what I like most about doing this is that I already have a good idea of what I want to try on, while of course picking up some extra things that I didn’t notice online.
Anyway, here are the items that I bought on my shopping trip, and I am so excited to wear them and style some beautiful outfits!
