The Best of Zara Spring 2013

Yesterday, I sifted through the Zara Canada online store and chose some of their best pieces for spring 2013! It has only been a couple of weeks since the launch of Zara’s new Canadian online store, and you can bet that fashionistas across the country have been taking full advantage of this. I myself have been frequently browsing their new arrivals. Although many like to feel and try on their clothes before purchasing, I prefer to take the time to carefully select my items in the comfort of my own home, make my purchase without pressure, and head to the store to return anything that does not fit or is not flattering.

As it can be overwhelming to sort through the numerous items offered at Zara, this post is intended to suggest to you a few of their statement pieces that caught my eye. Keep in mind that this list is generated from my personal tastes and that I am not affiliated with the company. As I love statement pieces, I try my best to choose the most eye-catching items, as well as offer some advice as I explain why I selected each item. I hope this helps some of you!

Jacquard Pattern Top $69.90

This sweater speaks for itself! I absolutely love patterns, and this intricately detailed pattern reminds me of the colors used on Turkish rugs. It gives off a high-class vibe, yet the sweatshirt cut keeps things laid back and cool. It is definitely at the top of my must-have list.

Two-toned Denim Shirt $69.90

Blocking two tones gives a structured and polished look to an otherwise relaxed shirt. In the past year we’ve been seeing a lot of jean shirts or chambrays, as it has become a key item in the wardrobes of many. The slight twist offered by this two toned button-up is definitely enough to catch my attention.  I think this shirt would really complement my Hip and Bone leather snapback.

Studio Striped Top $79.90

Sporty-chic is totally in! I love the studio-striped top because is super elegant and does not compromise comfort. ‘Nuff said.

Plush T-shirt $59.90

Heavy solid lines add some serious contrast to an outfit, which help you stand out in a crowd. I love clean lines. This shirt is easily worn with any coloured pant or leggings on an off-day! If you are one to have little energy for fashion creativity on most mornings, investing in easy-to-wear shirts like this increase your likelihood of making a statement, even when you don’t want to put in the effort.

Backlit Babe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In my road to bettering my fashion photography skills, I decided to attempt a backlit subject, placing my model in front of the main light source. I took this photo of my friend and fellow fashion blogger Sarah in my apartment on a Saturday morning. Things were kept simple and sexy. I think this photo belongs on a Majestic Casual YouTube Video.

And C is for Coffee!

I feel like such a wannabe blogger sometimes – I don’t own Instagram (so no #instamoments for me), as my phone is anything but smart. I do however have these mobile uploads from my boyfriend’s phone to show you. Here is a lightning quick post displaying my style as well as my love for coffee.
