Finally my favourite Zara store has emerged from the end of year sales, spring is here and I can't wait to get inside and choose some new pieces to fill the space in my wardrobe from all the culling I've been doing.
Key trends popping out for me are the bright coloured pieces that I really needed to freshen my wardrobe, giving me that morning inspiration that lifts my mood and reminds me that fashion is such good fun and not to take things too seriously. It really is a season to challenge your colour palette and try a new look.
Even if you think a colour doesn't necessarily suit you, there are ways you can change that with your makeup, have a look at our Yellow Fashion Friday, 5 of the girls from the office, all different skintones, all showing how to use makeup to make yellow work for us.
You ladies know that I love the cape jacket and I'm so happy that it's now in black and white, it's such a cool, versatile piece and a great addition to an outfit if you just want to look a bit cooler. I only wish they did it in neon.
There are so many coats in Zara that will work to transition from winter to spring, that's an essential to buy now so you get the wear from it before the weather warms up.
So that's my first look at Zara, it certainly put a little spring into a cold day...
