Outfit of the day : My Zalando shopping spree

10 Jul

Dear readers,

It’s been pretty quiet at FlemishFashionFreaks’ headquarters recently shopping-wise, as I am still looking for a new job, which implies trying not to go crazy in the shopping department for the last 6 months (quite a challenge as you can surely imagine).

But as sales were fastly approaching, I decided to give in to the urge just for once and visit Zalando for some online madness… And mad it was! So many different brands means many MANY hours spent behind this very computer to decide which outfit I wanted to promote to my absolute favorite summer outfit.

I instantly fell in love with a beautiful Grecian-inspired chiffon dress (shop here) from the brand Louche which was a novelty to me. Keeping an eye on the brand in the future as they had many fashionable items to my liking.

Next I searched for a cool pair of sandals to match the dress… Luckily for me (and my big shoe size 42) Zalando has many available options for us ‘plus sized’ girls. My heart skipped a beat when I found this floral pair of Anna Field sandals with white and green tones (find them via this link). They fit perfectly and are a dream to walk on… That’s why I decided to post-order the same item in blue so I can change accordingly to my outfit of the day.

I’m not a big fan of jewellry as I’m always getting stuck to everything with them (can you believe I never even had my ears pierced for this exact reason?!) but every now and then I like to brighten up a simple dress or top with a cool statement necklace, often with a referral to animals.  The leopard necklace from Me& Zena fit the description perfectly and was a sure winner to complete my easy-going summer look.

Do you like my new summer outfit? What is your ideal outfit for the summer?

With love, Nona

Get adventurous in snug, utilitarian looks.  Layer thick knits and rugged jackets for a look that works downtown or out-of-town.

 

What do you think of their new feature, do you like it or do you prefer the real-life shopping experience?
