OK....this post has nothing to do with Christmas but I had to return something to the mall [2 things I ordered from J Crew] and I wandered into Zara.  It has been closed for renovation for a couple of months.

Zara is famous for big style but small prices!  When you can get a cute top for a little more than you would pay at Target then I am all in!

Let's discuss some of the things I saw.....

I tried on this stretchy top and loved it!  For 39.00 it was a steal....

I do love how this would elevate some skinny jeans....throw on some black heels and you're there!

I also tried on this one  and thought the same thing.  

I would not wear it with baggy pants though.....skinny black pants would look so much better I think.  Again I think it was 39.00!

But how about this cutie?  It has a boho feel and I love when you can just throw on a white shirt and be done!

So this white shirt is perfect for me.  I am small on top so it would help balance things out if you know what I mean....wink wink!

Might not want to iron this puppy though....

This looks like something Coco Chanel designed!  I love the bow....although it might look better on somebody younger than me!

They only had this in small and I couldn't get it zipped [not sure what I was thinking to even attempt that!] but it was adorable!

I might have bought this headband if I had seen it!  How pretty right?

Call me crazy but I really liked this top.  Of course I would wear a cami underneath it....haha.

Pretty jeweled buttons.

I love a pretty top with fact I wear denim practically every is so easy to just figure out the top part of your outfit!

So listen I have noticed that Zara is made for small busted women....which is me.  And....sometime I am between sizes....depending on the fit.  But honestly y'all they really do have some cool stuff.

One thought....the store is so bright that I almost had to put on my sunglasses.  Like they needed to dim the lights for real.  I wonder if they did some study about that because frankly..... I hated it.

In other news I pulled into the bank drive through and they were doing construction so I was trying to miss a ladder and hit the curb.

All I heard was this loud hissing sound.....and I got that look of fear on my face as I hopped out and saw this.....Uh Huh.  Thankfully it was their fault and this sweet guy doing the construction changed the tire for me.

It could have been because I had just come from a Christmas lunch and I had on a mini skirt....hee haw.  Yeah #thisis67  Not going down without a fight.  Just saying.  [old Banana Republic jacket and scarf!]

Somebody asked me about my jeans on the last post.  They are AG and these are the fit

I went to a party last night with my neighbor and look at this spectacular charcuterie tray!  It was done by a local Atlanta company called CheeseMe.  Look them up on Instagram!

And I popped into my favorite Floral store called Pollen.

Everything. In. There.

Well everyone should be ready for Christmas by now!  I am trying to stay positive this season and my family and friends are checking on me daily to make sure I am OK.    I am.

Just know that you guys are definitely helping....every comment....every thought.....every suggestion.

Merry Christmas! I went to Zara for the first time this summer with my daughter and was knocked over by the great prices..I bought a houndstooth skirt for $20 and have gotten so many compliments on it. I forget about it since it’s in a mall I don’t frequent that much but seeing all of the cute things in your post will definitely pop in after the holidays...
Hang in there and love on Cami! Love your style, your humor and your grit!

Merry Christmas, Sherry! Here's to a fantastic 2020 and a new lease on life for you and all of us! Loved this review of Zara's great offerings. You look amazing!! Inspiring to this 62 year old who is also happily fighting the fight to be fit and my best all around. Grateful to be here (at your wonderful blog) and dealing with all the messiness of life (IRL). xoxo

I love your fashion posts. I’m 65 so I’m fighting the good fight also. No wonder I feel like I’ve been beat up most days.
Hugs to you this holiday season.

Just bought some fun pants at Zara, wore them last night to the boat parade in Newport Beach and got so many compliments. A black skinny leg with a sparkle stripe up the side seam. As someone fast approaching the big 7-O, I find fun fashion forward items for a steal! Love the things you shared and even ordered one of the dresses. I liked the white gathered shirt but it did remind me of Seinfeld’s “puffy shirt!”
I also want all of those amaryllis plants, one of my favorites. Wishing you a holiday filled with those who support and love you and here’s to a new year filled with wonderful, positive things. You got this girl!
