(Zara Top, Vintage Skirt/Necklace/Bag, Charlotte Olympia Boots)

This is basically one of the outfits I wore during RAFW but the completed version I had in my head. I felt a little overdressed when I paired this Zara top with my full circle skirt and lightweight cardi so I opted to keep it simple and dress it down with leather shorts instead. Still, I couldn't help but feel like my outfit was half finished so when a suitable occasion came up I jumped at the opportunity to wear it again, but styled with the pieces I had in mind in the first place. Kind of felt a little desperate over this top when I saw it for the first time. Let's just say I waited (or lurked) around during the Zara Sydney opening for an entire hour, waiting to see if anyone was going to put it back in my size. Yes, I was that crazy lady eying off anyone else with the same top in their hand and trying to casually see what size they might of had. Zara will do that to you.. and I don't know why I just told you all that.. Surely I couldn't be the only one who has ever done that, right?

Wishing you all a very wonderful and sun filled weekend. Which version of this outfit did you like better?

  2. I can't choose because both look great. I guess it's the shirt that goes with just everything and never lack!

  3. You look so darling in that skirt with the Zara top. I've done it too...eyeballing someone with the same item, hoping they had my size and were going to put it down...hehe. And your boots are killer, love the gold gilded soles.

  18. haha I heard about the Zara opening! bananas~
    gotta love them euro stores. Zara is def one of my faves. The shirt looks fantastic on you! I fancy the shorts look only a tad more since I'm mad for leather shorts right now~ (love how it goes with everything!) This looks so pretty too though~ And those boots...LOVE.

  19. I like this outfit just a teeny bit more :) you're so gorgeous anyway Nicole!

  20. You look so great! I have also done that before but I think there are more times when I actually see something perfect for me and know I shouldn't get it. So...I make a couple loops in the hopes that someone else will buy it. If it's still there, I just take it as a sign that it was meant to me mine :) Have a great weekend Nicole!

  32. I love both verions of this outfit. That green is just so lovely. I got an amazing circle skirt in the same colour from Zara in Japan. Loving it! But you described both outfits so perfectly; the shorts are great for a more casual look, but I just looove it with the circle skirt!

  57. Lol who hasn't done that? I've done it in Zara too a few days ago after seeing that the pair of shoes I've been drooling over for a week or so was gone in my size.
    Unlucky for me, turns out they didn't have my size anymore.

    LOVE the Charlotte Olypmia boots. That is just the go-to brand for edgy shoes now, isn't it?
