Mustard Satchel: Zara (in sale, not on site)
Hello everyone. Such a simple outfit on today's post, but it's actually one of my favourites. I was so excited when French Connection let me pick a dress from their site - there was so many pretty dresses to chose from, but I had to pick the monochrome and stripes, since I'm currently completely obsessed with both. I love the fit of this dress and the material's a bit thicker, so it holds the shape really well. There's so many black dresses on the site that can be dressed up or down and this one was the perfect balance between smart and casual - which was just what I was looking for on Friday. After work, I went along to the Benefit 'They're Real' eye liner launch (more to come on that soon!), then met my friends for dinner at Cafe Andaluz afterwards. I love that place!
I have to mention the bag. My new favourite bag of all time. I saw this in Zara when I was actually waiting in the queue to buy another bag. That was quickly thrown aside when I spotted this beauty of a satchel. It was in the sale reduced from £49.99 to £39.99 so it wasn't a huge saving, but who cares when it's this pretty! I love this colour in the summer because I think it looks so nice against a dark tan - which I do plan on getting soon.. *prays for sun* This bag is the perfect shape in every way. I love the long shoulder strap, the strong structure and the big pocket on the front which means I can keep my phone handy. Inside, it's super spacious too so it's the perfect every day bag. I've been loving the summer sales recently - so far, I'd say Zara has the best one!
