Spring will be upon us soon and so will the warmer and sunnier days. It is time to put the coats and boots away and to bring out bright and light clothing! Even though I will not be going out and buying these items, it is still nice to browse and to see which trends are more prominent for this new season. Below, I am sharing my favourite Spring pieces from Zara.
I would style this with denim shorts, heels, and a lace cami bodysuit or a band tee for a more casual look.
Dark Khaki Duster Coat
Style with white denim and white heels, or light-coloured trousers and wedges for an airy yet sophisticated look.
Lingerie-Style Top in white
Definitely an essential piece to any wardrobe. Very versatile for numerous outfit combinations and occasions!
Shirt With Pockets in coral
Shirt With Pockets in pink
Pink- and coral-coloured blouses are probably my favourite items to wear during the Spring. Brighter and more saturated colours bring out one’s skin tone in a lively manner. My favourite way to style a top such as this is with white denim, to really bring out the colour.
Buttoned Blazer in pink
Definitely love pink blazers, considering I own a pink blazer and it is one of my most worn pieces for Spring. Can be worn casually with a white tee and denim shorts, or as a set for the office.
Halter Top Dress
I love wearing bold-coloured maxi dresses, especially for late-night dinners during the Summer or for tropical vacations.
Striped Printed Shirt
Major nautical vibe with this shirt! Style with white skinny jeans and heels, white loose trousers and wedges, or even white cotton shorts and sandals. The white bottoms help make the blue of the shirt more saturated and more appealing to the eyes.
Animal Print Triangular Swimsuit
Nothing gets you ready for Summer like a cute bathing suit!
Welcome back! I have decided to introduce a new mini-series to my blog: the Timeless Capsule Wardrobe. It has been a long-time coming, so I am excited to finally be sharing it with you all.
As you know, I am currently in university and am living the life of a broke student 😦 My reality involves working 30+ hour weeks to be able to pay for school out-of-pocket as I go. My goal is to avoid student loans in order to graduate debt-free. It is doable, however it is challenging and takes great discipline in order to maintain a tight budget.
Unfortunately, as much as I love fashion and beauty, I do not have the funds to afford all the luxuries that I desire. Therefore, when shopping, my philosophy is putting more money towards one item with high quality that I know will last me a long time. I am not a fan of fast-fashion; buying multiple cheap clothing items of low quality that do not last long. You might get a couple of wears out of them before having to purchase a whole new item once again. This shopping mentality not only exhausts your money, but also your time. Time that could be spent at your job working and making more money (increasing your cash inflow), instead of spending more money (increasing your cash outflow).
With that in mind, I have chosen a few items that I find every wardrobe needs, but that create a variety of timeless outfits. The whole point of a capsule wardrobe is to exploit as many different outfit combinations with a select number of clothing items. The trick is to buy neutral pieces that can alternate well with each other.
Every week, I will be posting a continuation of this series, focusing on a certain type of clothing item. First one to come will be about coats, jackets, and blazers. Stay tuned!

This look is all about playing up wardrobe basics. We are using a basic white t-shirt, black skinny jeans, nude patent pumps, and a black structured bag, all of which are found in almost all closets. For this particular look, I would wear the t-shirt in a half-tuck. The focal item of this outfit is the blazer; giving a twist to an ordinary workwear item with a pop of colour and an amusing cut.
