Zara Summer Sale

Ladies, this is it.  It only happens a few times a year – the Zara mid-season sale.  Starting June 14 at midnight.

I have rounded up some of my favs below.  I like to get my shopping  cart filled before the sale starts so that I can just check out at midnight.  Because its midnight and I am tired, but also things sell out so fast. Like in minutes.

BTW – if this is your plan, the site usually shuts down a couple hours prior to the sale, maybe 10PM.

Happy Shopping

The ‘Goes With Everything’ Sandal

As much as I like spending time in my closet picking out the perfect shoe for my outfit, sometimes, I mean most of the time, its just not realistic.  So I like to have a ‘goes with everything’ pair of shoes at my front door that I can throw on when I am in a rush.  For me the ‘goes with everything’ summer shoe is a nude strappy sandal.  It works with shorts, denim dresses and its nude so its goes with pretty much any colour.  And I love nude because it also elongates your legs, especially when you are midi skirts.

Here’s a round up of my favourite ‘goes with everything’ summer sandal.

Over-sized Maxi Dress: Summers’ Easiest Piece To Wear

The easiest piece to wear this summer is definitely the over-sized maxi.  It’s light and breezy for those hot summer days. Super comfortable.  Cute.  Totally effortless – one piece and you are done. And it you’ve eaten too much ice cream, its also forgiving.

With a bold over-sized dress like this, I like to keep the accessories simple.  Nude strappy sandals would be my choice, like these ones.  Click the images to shop.

Summer Essential: The Strappy Midi (under $100)

The easiest piece to wear in the summer is a dress – hands down.  One piece and you’re done.  But also, its HOT (not complaining) and there is nothing breezier than a loose fitting strappy dress.

Also, if you are looking for a little more coverage up top, layer a tee underneath.  White is always a good option but grey would look cute with most of these as well.  Something fitted but not too tight.

Here are some of my favourite strappy midi dresses for the hot summer months ahead.

1. Ruffled Eyelet White Midi.  Zara.

This is probably not for every day errand running because while white is beautiful, it’s just not the most practical.  But this would be beautiful for a date night.  OR an afternoon party.

Summers Cutest Fabric: Eyelet

I love how feminine and flirty an eyelet piece is.  Plus who doesn’t like a little ventilation on a hot summer day.  This summer, there is no shortage of eyelet pieces from dresses to tops, shorts and even shoes.  Although I am not sold on the eyelet shoe.   Here are a few of my favourite eyelet pieces.

Summer Kimonos Under $100

A light kimono is the perfect layering piece for summer.  The prints are always so fun and the flowy light fabric is breezy and cool for hot summer days.  I love wearing a kimono over denim cutoffs because not only does it give me a little coverage but it also adds a little something ‘extra’ to an otherwise basic outfit.  Plus, a kimono makes a great beach cover up.

Here are a few of my favourite kimonos for summer.
