Everything in this post is from Zara.
One of the high points in Stavanger this fall was definitely the grand opening of a Zara store right in town. As sad as it sounds, this was actually a pretty big deal in the local area--the newspapers even published articles about it. I know right? Anyhow! Since its opening, I've probably been in there about four times. Not ashamed!
On one trip, I noticed this scarf. I loved that it had the pattern on both sides, and seemed like it would be nice and warm for the winter months. I couldn't get it out of my head, so I had to go back and snatch it up. Which of course led to a few impulse buys.
Such as these shoes. I love the pointy toes, as well as the silvery details adorning them. Probably not the most logical purchase at the onset of a Norwegian winter, but I couldn't resist. I'm not someone who rotates her whole wardrobe out every season, so I can easily see myself transitioning these awesome shoes into spring. Plus-we can get some sunny, cool days, right? Totally acceptable to wear a flat with tights, as long as there isn't any snow on the ground.
I also picked up these earrings. Another total impulse buy--but I love them. Actually, they've gotten the most wear out of any of these items. So thumbs up for that!
Sadly, the scarf proved itself to be a bit awkward to wear, particularly with my coats. The verdict is still out on whether or not I will keep it. I suppose I need to decide soon, as the receipt goes out tomorrow I think, ha!
*Update: Scarf definitely needed to go back--it was just too massive (like a giant square, rather than a long rectangle, if that makes sense). Which sucks, because I loved the pattern and the fabric quality. But--better to return it unused, and let someone else enjoy it, than have it sit in my scarf box collecting dust (or scarf fuzz, as it were). And, while I was browsing through the shop on my way out, I found an awesome birthday gift for one of my best girlfriends who turned the big 3-0 yesterday. Win-win if you ask me!
