I've been online Zara shopping again. It is now my go-to for dresses for my girls. Quite a selection of fun, pretty, appropriate, and 10-11 yr old approved dresses. From very casual everyday to lacy fancy. I recently ordered the embroidered dress in midnight blue and striped dress with zip in bluish for my youngest, and the ponte di roma jacquard dress and dress with collar detailing for my oldest. She is excited to do some in-store Zara shopping in Spain this summer, where the retailer originated. We are only going to be very close to the French border but I looked up store locations around San Sebastian and it looks like there are a few Zaras to choose from in the area.
For myself, I've just received an order of some black and neutral tops, thinking of summer vacation packing already (Copenhagen, London, Paris). I wore this one the other day. I think it will be nice neutral background for colorful scarves:
Zara Oversize Sweater in Natural over an ON tank, F21 denim, Tiffany Keys three-key pendant, kate spade London Calling bangle
I find the leather strap on these rubs at the back of the heel and I use Dr. Scholls rub relief or a little bandaid. I bought a Dr. Scholls moleskin roll to try with rubby shoes too (Target).
So, these are iPhone snaps. I now have a new digital SLR camera - my first - which I just started working with yesterday. I am hoping I will be getting some great photos of my children's activities, on travels, and for the blog very soon.
As for reading, I finished Sharp Objects by Jillian Flynn a week or so ago. Great writing and could barely put it down, but so very creepy and disturbing. I'm looking forward to reading Dark Places, but I needed an emotional break after that one, so I'm currently on Habits of the House by Fay Wheldon. A much lighter novel set in turn of the century London (very Downton Abbey-ish if you are a fan).
Any great summer reading recommendations?
