What I Wore - Casual Sunday in Zara


Hi everyone!


I hope you are all really well and that you are enjoying the pretty weather as much as I am. I feel like it is so much easier now to go out and take these types of photos during the spring and summer season. And so I have a new post featuring a relatively new dress worn by Kate in June when she attended William's polo match with George and Charlotte.


I feel like we have been spoiled this year with Kate wearing a lot more available and relatively affordable outfits this year. I don't know about you but last year wasn't all that great in terms of recreatable outfits. Even now with Kate still being on her maternity leave and us not seeing her a lot, I feel like its a much better year style wise. Plus, who is excited to see Kate attending Wimbledon with Meghan tommorow?


Since Kate was photographed running in these beauties, I felt it was only right to put them to the test in the same way. I can happily report that these espadrilles are so comfortable that it is easy to run in them. Probably best for durability sake and the risk of tripping and damaging the shoes to refrain from running whenever you can :P 

Kate in the same Zara dress and R&B Espadrilles, proving yet again that being classy doesn't always have to be expensive ;)

Let's get back to this outfit. This dress is the perfect classic take of a light weight striped summer dress, yet it is very much on trend with the off the shoulder detail and rouched effect. It is super comfortable on and feels very well made, which for the 49,95 price tag is a huge bonus. One thing that is wise, since the thin nature of the fabric is to wear something of a slip or nude colored under garments underneath this dress. If the sun hits you in the wrong way people may see your under region or your funky colored underwear ;)




The Russell and Bromley coco nut espadrilles are a absolute dream. Russell and Bromley lay their focus on good quality and comfortable shoes, which reflects in their prices. It is a investment esentially, but a very good one nevertheless. If you care for your shoes properly, you will get to enjoy them for many years. Quality over quantity is my motto.

Whilst the Zara dress has since sold out your best bet for the dress is Ebay, where loads of sellers offer this dress online. 


However the Russell and Bromley shoes have been restocked and are available in all sizes at the time of writing. Click here to shop!


I hope you enjoyed this post! Ill be back with another outfit of the day soon! Subscribe to my mailing list if you want to be notified of any future blogposts!
