Obsessed: Zara Spring Collection

I spent three days last week with my cousin in Toronto. We hadn't seen each other since christmas so we relaxed, caught up and shopped. After browsing the bags at Holt Renfrew, which is Canada's version of Barney's or Saks for all the non-Canadians out there, (always at the top of my To Do list) we headed to Zara.

These Skinny Stretch Jeans $59.99 CAD have been on my mind for a while and I was happy to see that they still had them. But, I am on a strict budget because I'll be going back to school in the fall so left them in the store.

Once I was home I was browsing blogs and Laura from Barbie Laura was wearing the same pants. This photo made me wish I had bought them.

Blazers are a staple item for me and I only own a few so I am always on the look out for more. I quickly fell in love with the Studio Blazer in White $159 CAD

and the Studio Blazer in pink $199 CAD. I couldn't afford the pants so I definitely could not afford either of these blazers.

Next I tried on the Double Breasted Blazer in green $119 CAD. I have a small obsession with green that goes back to my childhood days of reading Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley High. I am a twin and I thought that I was more like Elizabeth and because her favourite colour was green so was mine (feel free to laugh). Now I actually like green.

I walked away empty handed but I did purchase 2 items from H&M that I will post about later. I would just like to state that being responsible with my pay cheque really sucks.



* Strangely online prices are higher than in store prices.

  1. I love all of these - I'm obsessed with the Zara cropped pants as well and may have to invest in a pair.

  3. Zara's collection is really quite nice. So hard to keep control of my wants and holding on to my credit cards strong. I think I have the same Teal Green Pants!

  9. We don't have Zara where I'm from. It seems pretty expensive. Am I right? The colors are gorgeous and I so wish you had been able to get the green skinnies. But I totally applaud your strength! I suck at not shopping.
