My first ootd post of the year, and it this gorgeous Zara polka dots shirt dress. A perfect purchase in the January sale.
Recently I have been loving Zara more and more. I have always been a little hesitant about this brand. Ok, remember how I told you the story of me growing up and never feeling pretty enough to go into Topshop? Well, it kind of like that. I just thought I was never cool enough for Zara and I always felt out of place when looking at clothes.
I know, it all stupid and it all silly thoughts going on in my brain. At the end of the day, when going into a store nobody cares or are looking if you’re cool. So yes, I know I need to stop thinking like this.
Anyway, so recently I have found myself loving Zara more and more. In my local shopping centre, there’s a Zara and a Primark next to each other. I always made a beeline to Primark and never going into Zara.
But lately, well Primark has been rubbish and I’m finding more things I liked in Zara than in Primark. I use to walk into Primark and never leave empty handed, now – that all I do. I would look round Primark and there nothing that would suit me or even anything I like.
Not that it bothers me, as I been saying for a while I need to stop shopping in Primark and go back to the quality high street brand. I think I’m finally done with Primark clothes.
So at my local shopping centre, feeling bored with Primark – I went into Zara. And I was very impressed as there were so many things that really caught my eyes. Oh my words, I feel like I’m finally seeing through frosty glass for the first time.
I feel like Zara has tapped into my brain and designed lots of lovely clothes which I just love. So much so, I found myself loving everything – and guess who did big spend up at their January sale?
Guilty as charged. But they have a really good sale at the moment and I’m not one to miss on bargains.
Which bring me to this Zara polka dots shirt dress which was one purchase I just had to show you. Trust me, over the course of the next few months there will be plenty of Zara clothes on here.
This is a long Zara polka dots shirt dress. The model on the website I think was at least 6ft, so the dress went up to her knee. On me, cause I’m only 4ft10, the dress comes down to my feet. Which is fine as I can imagine myself I’m wearing a really long maxi dress.
One of the reasons why I’m starting the year OOTD (outfit of the day) with this Zara polka dots shirt dress, is that this is something you can actually wear in January as it has sleeves. I’m a big fan of dresses that have sleeves, as it means I can wear them in January without freezing too much.
Now I can’t think of any disadvantages of wearing this dress as for it ticks all the right boxes. So I’m hoping you will all like this and it ticks all the right boxes when looking for a dress to wear in January.
