If Zara were an ex-boyfriend, he’d have slapped me with a restraining order well before now. Seriously, I can’t stay away — and it certainly doesn’t help that I live a mere 300 yards from the Spanish retailer’s Chicago-based outpost.
On my last shopping
haul trip, I picked up a few items, including these floral-print shorts and a pair of perfectly color-blocked strappy sandals. Both, I thought, were perfect for spring and summer, so I jumped at my first opportunity to style them together when the temps rose above 60 degrees last week.
Just how frequently do I find myself taking the long route home to pay a quick and, often times, unnecessary trip Zara? I’m won’t divulge that, since my parents read this; but I will tell you that twice a week, the store receives a fresh shipment of limited runway-inspired clothing and accessories. Wink.
