Chain Check: ZARA- By Day/ By Night (Part I)

Ah, Zara. Long-time fast fashion favourite, allowing us to follow high fashion trends at a low-end budget. I barely step in the place before clothes jump into my arms, carry me to the fitting rooms and eventually the till.

Spring/ Summer 2016 follows this trend to the T; what stood out to me was the variety of one-pieces that could be taken from day to night in a whirl of a wardrobe. Here are a few of my favourites.


By day:

This basket bag follows me around the Zara store- I love how the tough leather straps contrast with the soft suede jacket.
