Wowza! Zara nails it over and over and over and over again. I first fell in love with Zara as an awkward middler schooler when I was visiting Mexico City. It used to be a shopping staple when visiting foreign countries because it was affordable and no one else had heard of it. Today the Spanish store is everywhere. Thank God!
My post-college financial independence has left me with a much lighter travel schedule (and by lighter I mean non-existant, vacations cost serious money), so Zara is my go to place to try tends that are too scary to commit $100 plus dollars. Cross-body Bag? Zara. Color blocking? Zara. Platforms that I’m entirely too tall to wear? Zara!
