ZARA Sale, Express Midi Skirts & Recent Outfits

Have you guys checked out the ZARA sale? I stopped by this weekend and found the cutest peplum blouse (similar) – the print is so pretty and I adore the green colour – I plan on wearing this on my birthday.

I also loved the frayed green tweed jacket – but they were sold out of my size. I like longer skirts so I stopped by Express to try on their pencil midi skirts. I’m obsessed with the sequin skirt – it’s perfect for parties. The floral skirt is very pretty too – I’m just waiting for a sale and I’ll definitely be buying them.

Now on to some recent outfits – here’s what I wore on Canada Day – my whole family wore themed shirts to celebrate our love for Canada!

Shirt: Old Navy, Necklace: H&M (similar), Sandals: Aeropostale (similar), Bag: LV Speedy 25

Chevron Maxi Dress:

Dress: GAP 4-in-1 dress, Jacket: American Eagle, Sandals: Sam Edelman Gigi, Bag: Minkoff, Necklace: F21 (similar)

Pink Button Down:

Shirt: H&M, Necklace: JoeFresh (similar), Jeans: GAP, Sandals: Sam Edelman Gigi

By the way  – I’ve received a lot of emails asking about the Forever 21 shirt I’m wearing in the second picture here – and it’s finally back in stock in case you were looking to buy one!

Have you shopped the ZARA sale? Did you dress up for Canada Day and/or the 4th of July?

      Thanks Gina – I definitely hope I can get the sequin skirt before it sells out…I may have to go back and pick it up full price! I wish I knew how online shopping for Express worked in Canada – there are often great sales online but if it's shipped from the US, I'll have to pay customs 🙁

    I can't decide which look I like more 🙂 That green peplum top is so unique I really like the pattern.

      Thanks Megan – I oved the peplum top ever since I saw it online – but it was hard to imagine how it would look like on me, so I'm glad I got the chance to try it on in person 🙂

    I love the peplum top on you! I can't seem to pull it off with jeans but it looks perfect on your body! I haven't made it to Zara but I did peek online. Sadly, the things I had in mind are sold out. I love your outfits! The chevron maxi is so pretty.

      Thanks Noelle! I usually can't wear peplum tops – especially if the flare hits me low – I think it emphasizes my thighs in a bad way LOL. I think this peplum is different because it's quite short and hangs down, so it's not too flared out 🙂

    Have you had any issues with your Gap maxi dress bleeding color? I bought a blue/white striped maxi a couple years ago and the navy bled into the white so it just looks rather gray these days. :(Sequins&Stilettos

    I am in love with that floral peplum top and those amazing sales at Express. Wish I was in the States right now. But yeah I checked out the Zara sales and picked up that same sequined Aztec Mini which I love, a Tank, a Necklace and another Mini Skirt. Looking beautiful as always, Ella. =)Happy Monday!! Ada. =)

    Love all the goodies you scored. I bought the pink faux leather Zara jacket that I've been eyeing for a long time but passed it a couple of times. SO happy I was able to score it during the sale. I love the chevron dress, it looks so pretty with the denim jacket!
