Wardrobe Classics and Memories

Every time I step into Zara I hope to find some amazing and classic wardrobe staple like this dress that I can wear over and over again. I've still not found my next piece to covet but they have some fantastic coats in at the moment which is proving to be very tempting. I like wearing this dress casually in the day time with a denim jacket but for a friend's wedding recently, I cinched the waist with this Gold ribbon belt. I accessorised with more classic pieces including this bag which has definitely seen better days (sadly it's beginning to fall apart) and these comfy black patent heels. All these pieces in my wardrobe hold on to some kind of special memory - from a fun shopping trip with my sister (she has the same dress but in caramel), a gift from my grandparents when I was 18 (the bag) and a graduation (the shoes!). I'm sure there are pieces in everyone's wardrobe which hold on to some very happy memories!

  1. Aaaah, Winnie, you look beautiful. Love this so much. I know what you mean about memories attached the things- my favourite green handbag is a gift from T, a silk dress that (miraculously still fits) I wore for my 18th birthday, and a couple of bits I've made over the years too.

  2. You look stunning and it's so true about Zara nearly all of my staple pieces are from there, they're such good quality to considering how much I paid for them. I'll definitely have to check them out again soon I'm in dire need of some new wardrobe pieces! xoxo

  5. The belt is amazing! I tried on practically every coat in Zara the other week but none of them looked good on sadly. I ended up getting something in Warehouse - I recommend having a look there!
