Okay - ding ding - round three. The last Zara jacket in the series is this one :
Not quite what you were expecting was it? I bought this jacket the day after it hit the website. Probably about two to three weeks ago. I just knew I liked this jacket. Just like I knew I liked all the other jackets but this one is a definite keeper .... I think.
Zara Scarf, Aubin & Wills Jumper, Jack Wills Jeans, H&M Shoes
So no great shakes here and you must have the measure of me by now and what I like to wear. I'm just going to wear it with a tee and jeans. Because that's the look I like and that's the look I'm comfortable with.
River Island Necklace, Splendid Tee, Dorothy Perkins Belt, Jack Wills Jeans, Zara Sandals
Mixed all my metals here but I don't mind. Hope you don't.
As you can tell, this is not a school run jacket. No no no! This is not a daytime jacket with the kids. No no no! This is a grown up going out in the evening jacket when there are no small people near to touch the divine whiteness.
I've wanted a white/ivory jacket for a while now but this is the first one that fits how I like and is relaxed and comfortable enough for me not to feel too stuffy in it. Oh yes and the sleeves are not tight like the previous two jackets ... and I had to size down. Bonus.
And white goes with everything doesn't it? Just like black goes with everything but a white jacket does feel kind of fresher and more appropriate for the lighter days.
James Perse Tee, New Look Jeans, Krimble Sandals
Why wear 1 bracelet when you can wear 4? All my own designs.
If I had a pound for every time I wore a pair of ripped jeans and the Krimble sandals, I would have myself a nice new Longchamp bag by now!
And just to throw a curveball - how about a dress with the jacket?
H&M Jersey dress, Monsoon Belt, Susie Ho bracelet
I'm just off to a meeting to discuss the latest edition of Vogue!
Sorry that the photos were a little hazy at this point - this was late in the afternoon when the sun (yes sun) was slowly ebbing away as I was frantically trying to get a few last shots for the post. But I'm kind of glad because you won't be able to see too clearly my cheap and cheerful £7 black jersey H&M (not Lang or Wang) dress used soley for the purpose of saying - look you can wear this jacket with a dress! I spent a lot of last summer in this dress. If you lose the jacket and shoes, keep the belt and stick on some flip flops - you are holiday ready.
So I think I'm finally done with Zara jackets for this season and you're probably tired of seeing them too. We had the red floral biker, the blue Marant'ish one and now this white number.
Do you have a favourite out of the three? Mine is the white one. As if you hadn't guessed.
