Campaign Loving: Zara Goes To P.E. Class

TRF 03 1920 Campaign Loving: Zara Goes To P.E. Class  %tag

I don’t often feature lookbooks on Fashionista Barbie, but I do love a great campaign, and I have to be honest I think of this autumn/winter 2014 shoot from Zara TRF more of an ad campaign than a lookbook **that’s my spin to include, and I am sticking with it**.

As soon as I saw these back-to-school inspired shots captured by Patrick Demarchelier I got all nostalgic, it got me thinking of all that new stationery, the excitement of seeing your friends after a long summer break, and those new trainers that you just have to persuade your mum to buy you for P.E. class.

As well as loving the setting, check out those sky blue lockers – very chic, I absolutely adore the collection – plaid skirts, stripy tops, Mary-Jane flats, cool plimsolls, and is that flared denim I see. Come on these clothes are dreamy, now if only my body would transform back to those school days!!!

My Style: Summer Loving In My Mickey Tee

fb style mickey tee 2 My Style: Summer Loving In My Mickey Tee %tag

I have finally started to embrace this gorgeous weather. At first it was a case of how long is it going to last, the insecurities of showing the world my bare legs, and generally not having anything suitable – winter layering has been needed for too long this year.

I have already expressed my love of the denim skirt, and yes I have already blogged this beauty from Zara, but wearing skirts with tees is fast becoming my summer staple, which is surprising as in recent years my wardrobe has been filled with dresses.

Last week I popped into Primark, the newer one at the Tottenham Court Road end of Oxford Street in London, and I found this cool Mickey tee I just had to have. Only £6, this beauty is the perfect summer tee, it is light, fun, and comfortable – I love the rolled up sleeves. I have this boyfriend-style tee in nearly every colour and I have raved a lot about them to my friends as they are a great wardrobe staple and can be dressed up or down.

While in Primark I also picked up these pink flats, I have been looking for a pink pair of sandals for a while and couldn’t quite find the right style, I am not a fan of the thong between my toes, and these ones priced £3.50 are not only a bargain, they are super comfortable, haven’t rubbed me and are great for just throwing on in this heat.

The final piece of this outfit that I loving is this adorable blue Paul Costelloe bag that my Mum bought me as part of my birthday present. I am gathering quite a collection of super cute tiny bags, there is something nice about scaling back on all the crap I usual cart around with me – and this bag is perfect for the weekend as it fits in my phone, purse, beauty essentials, keys, as well as my Canon PowerShotN for those inspiration moments on the go.

How has your style been dealing with the hot weather?

Summer Staple: Working A Ripped Denim Skirt

my style denim skirt 2 Summer Staple: Working A Ripped Denim Skirt %tag

How many denim skirts do you own? At the last count I think it was edging up to 10 – including a denim skater skirt, a micro mini, a maxi, a button down one, and too many shades of denim from faded to black to even describe, yet each summer I go in search of my next summer staple, and the 2013 version is this ripped beauty from Zara that only cost me £29.99 – serious bargain, so versatile, and I love the pencil skirt fit.

I wore this beauty at the weekend when I went into London to meet Sherin for our cupcake class and our trip to the cinema to see Joss Whedon’s version of Much Ado About Nothing and we did plan on taking fabulous style post piccies near Warwick Avenue, however it seemed to be raining every time we were outside so I only managed to get two snaps, which to be fair aren’t that bad considering they were super rushed.

What I love about denim skirts is that they basically work with near enough anything, you can make them casual with trainers and a statement jumper, you can dress them up with a sheer blouse and sky-high heels, and this weekend I went with a smart-casual vibe pairing it with a boyfriend style black t-shirt, chunky ankle boots and a pop of colour with my pink parka. Who would have thought that in June I would need a t-shirt, a scarf, a coat and an umbrella – seriously crazy weather?

Most denim skirts out there are either too short, too faded, or both, but this beauty is perfect – still working the 90s trend with the ripped patches, but with a pencil skirt fit, which I find super flattering as it kind of hugs all the right places and makes me feel skinnier, and it is that great in-between shade of blue, which is perfect for the summer.

As well as loving this denim skirt I also can’t stop wearing this pink parka that I picked up in Primark for £22. As well as being a serious bargain, it has been a godsend with this weather, as it isn’t too heavy and with rolled up three-quarter sleeves it is perfect to show off my arm candy – I really wish I had picked it up in every colour imaginable!!!

What are your summer staples? Do you love wearing a denim skirt when it gets warmer?

Daily Shop: Dress Week – Zara Printed Mini

zaraprinteddress Daily Shop: Dress Week   Zara Printed Mini %tag

This week as homage to the sun I am going to pick out my five best dresses under £100.

First up, this gorgeous Printed Dress from Zara, yours for £89.99. I love the silhouette of this dress, the way the skirt kicks out and the balance of the cap sleeves, super flattering.

I know that black and ecru isn’t normally the summer colour palette but as most of us at work while this heat wave is going on I thought this mini was a great summer look for the office. It is also a great dress to show off your tanned legs!!!

Daily Shop: Zara Printed Blazer

I have been after a floral jacket for a while, but the ones I have found have been more old-fashioned wallpaper prints, but this cute printed blazer from Zara has a modern vibe to it.

The cotton fuchsia print blazer is £49.99, and works perfectly with jeans and a tee, I just love how the retailer has styled it. Also three-quarter sleeves is perfect for summer. LOVE!!

I will take one of everything please!!!
