I finally got my hands on a pair of lace up flats!



________





Thank you Zara gods for allowing me to bless my wardrobe with a pair! Seeing how popular they are and the fact that my own blogger babes rocking theirs; I kinda wanted to see what all the excitement about. So, whilst I was scrolling through the sale section on the Zara website and I came across these Lace Up Flats in black and in brown. I was actually eyeing the brown ones but considering all the black shoes I actually own right now. But then with the recent purchase of a certain pair of Gladiators that I got talked into purchasing ( see that look here ) and with the help of my blogger babes...I ended up settling for the Black Lace Up Flats. 



Let me give you an honest review about these shoes...



I ordered them online and got them sent to the store. Not bad considering free shipping right? Wrong, they don't mention that you cannot track your order so if you have the patience to wait it out then by all means do that. Cause I really didn't. Okay, so now onto unboxing. I actually loved the packaging that my shoes came in. I know how crazy it gets during the sale season and I see how the shoes in the store are tossed, scuffed and dented plus I wanted to be the only person sticking their foot in my soon to be new shoes. 



Also they came in this suede protecting bag which will come in handy when or if I decide to travel soon. 



Now here is where it got a little upsetting. One of the lacing on one of my flats came broken. Ugh eff my life right?! Just wait it gets better...the receipt was accidentally tossed so I couldn't exchange them at the store. Just great. I ended up stitching it back together myself ( thank goodness it was suede ) but I was still afraid to wear them because I didn't want it snapping with all the walking that I do.



Yes, I am still catching pokemon lol!

Ah it is always a pleasure meeting up with my blogger babes and now I am introducing a few more that I have made!


________


This is one of the things I can definitely say I love about out blogger group founded by my babe Dani! She was actually ( along with Sarah , Kristin , and Vivi ) one of the first " nicest " bloggers that I met and we all have been blogger friends turn friends since. We all have.


As you know every month Dani plans these awesome monthly get togethers and invites a ton of local bloggers , vloggers , stylists you name it. We normally do brunch , happy hour , and we even did a girls night out which was pretty effing fun. It is a great way to network and of course make new friends.


Win win win!


This month we ventured to a restaurant called Bourbon! if the name alone doesn't convince you to come then how about bottomless mimosas?!


No? Then how about delicious french toast with fresh fruit , massive breakfast burritos , gigantic chicken sandwiches and the icing on the cake avocado toast!


I actually arrived a little late because I drove. DC is terrible when it comes to parking...think New York but way smaller ....oh the tragedy. Even though I was late I was still greeted with smiles and friendliness. There wasn't any awkward silences either! I, unfortunately didn't consume any alcohol because I had to work right after and I did drive after all. The horror! I am not going to lie I really enjoyed myself and that french toast was to DIE for literally....it was so crisp yet so soft! I don't even make french toast that good in my own house!


The owners of Bourbon James and Gjergji made sure we were well taken care of and even the chef came out and made sure that our food was made to our liking! Hospitality level 1000%! I crushed my french toast. I snapped a few photos of it and demolished it like it was the last meal I will have in my life. I seriously need to take another trip to Bourbon and not drive so I can fully enjoy myself with those bottomless mimosas!


Becasuse of the sudden random thunderstorm ( what the hell mother nature ) I wasn't able to snap photos of my outfit. I barely got to take any photos at all. No worries everyone else did so I will share what they took.  I will take this look again with le boyfriend when the weather isn't complete shit! Until then enjoy sneak preview.


Cannot wait for our September Blogger Meetup it is going to be very exciting!


Later Babes!


PS: How cute are these customized straws that Dani made us!? First the champs glasses and now these!? I cannot wait for the next meetup!

Could we take a moment of silence for these super amazing leather ( yes real leather ) booties from Zara!?



________




Okay, let me just say that I think I have gotten all 14 pairs of shoes that I donated back. Let me explain...I donated 14 pairs of shoes and a crap ton of clothing to ' Women and Children ' in need. I actually went from owning 100 pairs of shoes ( clearly I have a problem ) to 86 after sorting through all. I still have more clothing that I need to go to but I think this time I will take them to my local thrift-store.



Who knows.



I can honestly say though I have been replacing my wardrobe as well. Like for instance with this ' Olive Lace Up Top ' from the one and only H&M! I actually saw another blogger wearing a similar top on her blog and I thought...hmm this would look good in my wardrobe. Since it was sold out online ( that wasn't pricey ) when I clicked the link. But I knew I could find a similar top and whoot whoot I did! That definitely deserved a pat on the back. This beauty was only $7 with an extra 30% off. Yes, to bargain shopping time!



Speaking on the topic of good bargains let me talk about these effing booties! Seriously how friggen awesome are they!? You will never guess how much these babies were. $20! $20 freaking dollars! Okay, Zara you are officially my new bargain bestfriend! Best purchase ever! Who doesn't love a dramatic price drop!? Epic effing win!



Le boyfriend and I actually went into Zara to buy him some cologne because he was tired of not having any and me using his. At first I picked up a pyjama inspired top and was considering it BUT came across these babies instead. The booties were actually not marked down so I asked if they were and BOY was were they on sale! I died on the inside when she said $20! I couldn't hide the smile on my face.



What is on your sale season list?



Don't be afraid to share it with me!

News: Everyone has been tuned into their telly watching the Olympics rooting for their home country then there is me. Not watching the Olympics but going through a funk. For some odd reason this week has just been a bad one for me. I didn't want anything to do with Social Media and I just wanted to lay in bed an watch Netflix all day. When I stay busy I do not have days like that but I wasn't busy so I just could't be bothered with anyone.


Plans: Today I am going to a Blogger Brunch with some of my babes and I also get to meet new local Bloggers as well. I am really excited except it is supposed to rain all day so I am not looking forward to that. I also have to start taking photos for my Fall Lookbook but it is so bloody hot outside I just cannot seem to get motivated lol. I should suck it up though. I have so many things to work on for the blog.


Shopping: I actually didn't do any shopping lately. That fits into the category that I couldn't be bothered to do anything and you guys know how much I LOVE shopping. I was actually going to post a haul video that I recorded but I was cringing so much it wasn't going to happen. I am currently working on learning Premiere CC for Adobe so I could actually edit the video like a professional.


Watched: 


Looney Tunes and Stranger Things.


I couldn't watch Stranger Things at night because I really do not do well with anything scary or gore! I actually had to watch Looney Tunes after I watched Stranger Things so I wouldn't have nightmares even though I watched it in the morning. LOL.


Song Of The Week:


Whistle by Black Pink

I have been finally getting around to updating my wardrobe. 



________





All that basically means is that items I normally wouldn't think twice about getting or better yet wearing are making there way into y wardrobe. Which I must admit is what Fashion is all about is it not? 



I love affordable fashion just like any other blogger but I have been finding myself in Zara more frequently than I would like to admit. Walked into Zara with le boyfriend for some cologne for him and it was love at first sight when I came across the special item in this bag! Don't worry you lovelies will see what is in this bag in my next ' personal style ' blog post!



Okay, I am definitely going off topic here. Where was I? Oh yeah Zara sale and why I am becoming Zara obsessed. LOL. Well for one since some Zara locations still have selected sale items...which are marked down even more because they are trying to make room for the new items.  Perfect time to go to your nearest Zara store and find some key pieces. Like this dress. Which can be detached and be worn separately. Let me say something about this dress. You guys know for one that I do not wear dresses but for some odd reason I really liked this dress. Call me crazy. 



Paired with my ' Blue Oxfords ' which are also from Zara ( I got these last year ) and my very first Fedora that I ever owned. I guess you can say that on this particular day I was feeling quite blue. Pun intended. 



Even if it's not on sale I think Zara is slowly replacing my love for Forever 21. I was normally always wearing things from Forever 21 but now as I am getting older I feel myself going for more of a staple quality wardrobe rather than a crap I wore it twice and it's already messed up look. Does that make sense? Don't get me wrong I still enjoy shopping in Forever 21 but I haven't been having as much luck there like I have been with Zara. I think I need to really start investing into my wardrobe on pieces that I know will last forever! I mean quality wise as well.
