both £29.99 at Zara

Loose-fitting dresses, tops, knitwear... it's always been appealing to me. Hardly ever will you find me in a tight-fitting garment because while I love dressing up, experimenting and generally being 'fashionable', I like to be comfortable too both physically and mentally.

Zara currently have some beautiful breezy pieces floating about - see what I did there? The above white blouse which, frankly, I would try to pass off as a summery dress is a stand-alone wonder - team it with some sandals, sunnies and a headscarf and you're done. I'm also particularly fond of the paisley-esque tunic for its sweet neckline and turned-up sleeves.

What do you think?


  1. I completely agree with you, even though people always tell me I should wear tight stuff because I'm skinny, I never ever feel properly comfortable in anything that's tight on my stomach so dresses and tops like the ones above are just perfection to me. I'd love the white one especially I think it'd look gorgeous teamed with what you suggested or rocked up with leather leggings + some platforms for real rock chick glam but in a totally comfortable way. The printed dress I think I'd belt loosely at the hips and wear with flat ankle boots and a beaten up denim jacket for festival chic. Ahhh I want them both now :P


  2. I really like both, but particularly the second. I love the little collar which gives it a kind of shirt look. Lovely! x

  3. both are cute but I really like the off the shoulder one. Its sexy but classy and still playful.

  4. I would definitely agree - it's always good to feel comfortable in what you're wearing. I think it can make the fashion piece look better too, rather than suffer for the sake of it. The white dress is really pretty actually - not something i'd initially look at as i'm obsessed with slightly more structured or high waisted pieces, but that really is quite pretty :)

    lovely post.


  5. I really like the white one, I want it myself now! I love the off the shoulder style.
    Both really cute yet very comfy=perfect outfit!

  6. Lovely - I do really love Zara!

  7. I love the white one its gorgeous! Would be perfect for a festival! xxx

  8. I think you should never be baggy all over. As in, if you wear an oversized top then a pencil skirt on the bottom, etc etc. So big dresses work with legs. Haha.

    I like your blog lots! You are followed.

  9. I like the fabric of the white blouse and the cut of the tunic.:D

    Great picks and have a happy Wednesday!:D
