Two piece outfit: the co-ords edit!

Finally! I got myself to wear a co-ord, been wanting to do that for a while and Zara came to the rescue yet again. Well sort of! There’s nothing more satisfying than a matching set and it is easy to feel fabulous in them. The matching sets have been storming the fashion world recently and I love that you can create endless combos with just 2 pieces of clothing and you can either go pattern crazy with our bold prints or go with simple colors; either way you’ll for sure turn heads. What I love about cro-ord sets is that they are more versatile than the tailored office dress, more functional than jumpsuits and less corporate than a trouser suit.

Here’s my issue with Zara lately, I find that their prints are fantastic and the next collection seems bomb but I hate shopping there; it’s so confusing to walk through their stores and search through the endless piles of clothes thrown everywhere; so disturbing how much clothes are produced and how many new styles drop in stores on the daily! But sometimes, I fancy something new and when I do, I go to Zara…but lately, I much prefer to shop there online, it’s much easier. Also, can we all talk about how much their size range sucks!!!! It’s so not inclusive, which sucks, because some of us start to feel self-conscious; like I no longer fit in small at Zara and I know that it’s just a number and it’s not a big deal but honestly, what’s with the fashion industry?

Anyway, since I am pregnant, I ended up buying the co-ord set in a size large and it fit just right and actually the pants were a little snug…so I was contemplating whether I should keep the whole thing or not. Styling these sets is pretty easy because you just wear the pieces together and voila, you’re all set.

I would have loved to wear heels with this one, but since I am wobbly, I decided to just pair the outfit with these old oxfords I had in my closet and they were just fitting.

My sister got this vintage 1940s purse from a garage sale a few weeks ago and it was just the perfect finishing touch to wear with this outfit. I felt so lady-like; I figured why not complete it and be a Kennedy!
