Outfit of the Day: Embroidery and Bell Sleeves

Outfit of the Day: Embroidery and Bell Sleeves

Taking full advantage of this beautiful weather, I went out and did another outfit shoot. Last week I popped into Zara as I had some time to spare and oh my do they have some really great cloth out now! As I couldn’t just walk out there with nothing from their new range, I had to buy myself a new top.


I love the style Zara is going for at the moment. They do have a lot of stripy tops, loose shapes and many with bell sleeves. At the end, I went with this gorgeous blue and white striped top with embroidery and bell sleeves. It has a cut out back and the bow makes it so much cuter. But the star of this top is clearly the bell sleeves. They make the top really stand out. The embroidery is such a nice touch and makes this Zara top appear very chic.

Chic but casual

So it has quite a loose fit but it’s tucked in at all the right places and gives a really nice shape. I paired it with some high waisted jeans from Topshop and with the sun out I wore my trusty Garrett Leight Clip on Sunglasses. Adding my small Mulberry Bag pulls the outfit all together (at least in my eyes). Oh and not to forget my pink Nike Air Max. They make an outing whenever the sun is out. (PS: Here‘s how I do my Dutch braids)

I’m in love with my new Zara top! It’s so chic but works really well as an everyday piece too. I can see myself wearing it a lot this spring! Embroidery and bell sleeves for the win I would say!

Hope you’re all having a lovely day and don’t forget to leave me a comment and subscribe via Bloglovin or mail to be the first to know about new post. Thanks for stopping by, xx.

      Thanks so much Kristina. Yes I do, it’s an “old” lipliner in a brownish shade and then I went over it with Velvet Teddy from MAC. Loving that lipstick! xoxo

    This style really suits you and that hairstyle is absolutely on fleek! I really like how bell sleeves add a whole new look to a top and swoosh around as you move xx
