A Stroke of Sheer Genius and a Dash of Metallic Magic

So my sassy other half Amy is holidaying AGAIN and I'm left on my lonesome sitting in on a Sunday night with a cuppa listening to the rain drizzle down the windows (not that I'm bitter or anything). I don't know about you guys but the weather recently has put me in a horrible lazy rut where I've literally just been coming home from work and slipping into my pjs. I've been out of my gym routine for the past two weeks now, and it pains me to see Amy working out religiously on her Snapchat (WHILST on holiday may I add) so Monday screams new week and back to reality for Melisa - 6 weeks until Dubai. Anyhow enough of the ranting and down to the nitty gritty stuff that actually matters here on our FASHION blog - the fashion.

Not that we've mentioned our love for the Zara sale yet on our blog (jokes) but I think we have well and truly sucked the life out of the Zara summer discounts. I'm not really a bomber jacket type of gal but I just loved the look of this little oriental one! I thought it was super girly and practical being that it is my favourite colour - nude. Trying to be sensible and stick to the sale section, my eyes couldn't help but wander over to the new-in pieces. I couldn't resist these pinky/nude pleated culottes which are super comfy and chic. Although, I opted for a casual look here, these trousers would also look fabulous on a night out in the town styled with a pair of barely-there strappy sandals and a slinky lil' crop. Finishing the look off I wore my fave oversized sunnies and borrowed Amy's funky La Moda sandals.  I had been waiting to pick these up for myself in black for literally weeks and although they came back in stock last week, they sold out of my size within 2 hours. Determined as always, I managed to find a stockist on Ebay so I shall link that down below for anyone interested!

Moving on to Amy's attire...can we just take a moment to discuss how cool this sheer navy dress is!? Literally in love - and definitely going to be picking one up for myself once I'm paid. We absolutely adored how it looked with these tailored white culottes (also Zara sale) and metallic top, but we think it would also look gorgeous thrown over a bikini on holiday too. Amy's heading off again to Ibiza this summer so I'm sure she will definitely be styling this piece this way when she's there. Obviously the look wouldn't be complete without Amy styling her fave rose-gold mirrored sunnies from La Moda!

Anyways Tbloggers thanks for dropping by! Amy will be back soon gushing amount her wonderful cruise ship adventure but for the mean time stay sassy and fabulous!
