I'm afraid I have to keep this short and sweet, as I've got to get some sleep - tomorrow Chris and I are going on a little day-trip and we'll have to actually get up early! It's incredible how easy it was to get used to this whole not-working thing.
Fortunately for brevity's sake, almost none of our pictures turned out today, despite my overwhelming enthusiasm for this new blouse from Zara. I'd been a big fan of the miu miu-inspired cat prints that have been popping up all over during the last few months, so when I saw this sheer number on eat.sleep.wear the other day, I'd looked it up online (and it was even on sale!), put on my coat, and headed out the door before poor Chris even knew what was happening. I went to the four closest Zaras (all within a mile - this is Spain, after all), including the biggest one I have ever seen in my life, and emerged victorious.
For the meow-meow shirt's first outing, I wanted to keep the color palette and accessories pretty minimal and let the print really do the work. I'm not usually very big on buttoning my shirts all the way to the top (something about being strangled), but I really loved the combination of the prim buttoned collar with a seriously red lip.
