Like pretty much every other twenty-something female in Europe, I seem to have grown particularly fond of Zara. I’ve always liked their cool, casual Spanish style of clothes but more recently I've developed the inability to leave any Zara store without buying something. It's becoming a bit of an expensive habit so last week I promised myself I wouldn’t buy anything, just simply browse.
Naturally, I found my dream jumper. I'm not normally a knitwear kinda gal, however I was completely drawn in and began to instantly regret my promise. I decided to try it on – after all it will probably look hideous and I won’t want to buy it right?! Upon entering the fitting room I found that my theory was flawed. I loved it! I wandered around the store with the jumper in my hand for almost 20 minutes, arguing with myself whether or not to buy it. Then finally, I put it down and left. I’m not entirely sure where this moment of madness came from but it felt quite good... until that evening.
I woke up in a cold sweat questioning myself as to why I didn’t buy the jumper? I liked it, it fit well and it wasn’t overly expensive - I NEED that jumper! I woke up the next morning and hurried straight to my local Zara store to buy it. Ever since I’ve been finding any and every excuse that I can to wear it. It's really comfortable without looking too casual and the slightly fitted arms make it very flattering. I’ve even secretly happy that it’s been raining for the last two weeks, because now I have my perfect Zara knit to wear!
