Zara Semi-Annual Sale Finds & OOTDs (From Friday)

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!  Before I get into this post, I wanted to remind everyone about the $50 SEPHORA Giftcard Giveaway. This giveaway requires a little more effort than just commenting, but it's definitely worth it because I think you'll find that the KartMe website will be really useful in your everyday life and you'll be happy you signed up.  Go to my giveaway here.

On Saturday I was really sick (to my stomach) and had to spend most of the morning and afternoon at home until I felt better.  It was awful.  I hate being sick on weekends because I feel so unproductive.  I did start feeling better later in the afternoon so I decided to check out the Zara semi-annual sale. It was actually nice to get out of the house for a couple of hours after being home all day.

I ended up purchasing two dresses that I had tried on during previous visits to the store but didn't buy. I was so glad to find them on sale.  

First was this pretty white dress:

It's a linen material and I love the way the fabric is layered at the bottom.  The dress is lined but is quite sheer so I got a nude-colored slip today at Target for under $10 to wear underneath it.

The second dress is a really body-hugging style but I love the sleeves on it. Not sure if I will keep or remove the bow. It's quite flattering on, but I might need to get spanx or something because it's not very forgiving.
I assure you that both dresses look better ON than they do on the hanger. I will do some OOTD's with them soon. They were both on sale for $29.99 each.

Speaking of dresses, I wore my Express tiered ruffle dress that I got last weekend out for dinner on Friday night. I paired it with my J. Crew belt and Michael Kors wedges (I just love his shoes...and hangbags and watches...)

I also have another OOTD from Friday (during the day). I wore a bright-colored dress from target with a long open-faced cardigan from Charlotte Russe and my J. Crew ballet flats:

...and a BIG HELLO from LULU!

Did you score any deals at Zara?  I actually wish I would have spent more time looking through everything but the store was so crowded!

xoxo,

Veronika.

  11. Oooh Zara is a fun store, I love everything you got. I think the bow detail on the black dress is sweet and hopefully you'll keep it on! :) you could still accent the outfit with a bracelet or long necklace. Great outfits too!

  12. No Zara here around me, but that could be a good thing. I hit the Gap and Saks sale, gotta love additional off sale prices! Your outfits are cute as usual! Hope you are feeling better.

  13. I think I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love you in that orange/coral colour!! SO pretty.

    Lulu!! Adorable!! Hehe!

    Okay, lastly, I didn't REALIZE Zara was having a semi-annual sale. We JUST got a Zara here (less than a year ago) and I didn't know... until I started seeing all these blog posts about people's trips and scores at the 'semi annual sale' - damnnit! Was it one day only?! Am I S.O.L.??? :(

  18. Beautiful Veronika! I didn't know Zara was having a sale, but then again my nearest Zara is about an hour and fifteen minutes away. It's a treat (and a trek) when I go there in Orange County. I cannot stress how much I love Michael Kors as well ;)
