Summer just started and what better way to celebrate than with a raspberry-banana smoothie and a new dress from Zara? I was in need of something bright and fun to wear on my upcoming citytrips and so I went by the stores in hopes to find a pretty, colourfull addition for my wardrobe. This pretty coral-pinkish number caught my eye. It has a low cut front AND back and has these open cut sleeves that I really love. Due to the open neckline it slips off the shoulders very easily, but that’s nothing a bit of anti-slip tape can’t fix! I wouldn’t want to end up like Tara Reid or La Lohan! When I got home I immediately tried out a few combo’s and I never thought It would mix into my wardrobe so well. Cobalt, mint, black, yellow, white… everything works! I also finally gave in and bought two coloured belts to pair with my dresses. I choose yellow and coral as these colours are on trend this season. Oh, and I also found a coral scarf at work for 50% off. Score!
How is life treating you? My days are filled with work and my evenings are spend with K. I didn’t get to see him that much during the exams so we are enjoying some quality time together now. I have quite some catching up to do and will start that tonight. For now I’m going to chase my youngest sister who just sprayed a half bottle perfume on me. I’ll get her! And hopefully my bus to work too…
very sweet dress. its really beautiful your new dress from zara.
You look so pretty in that dress. Love the soft colour on you

LOL! I bet that perfume smell lingered for hours! 🙂 Love the coral dress. I have been loving that color lately too. I actually just painted my nails a coral color! You look gorgeous as always! Hope you had a great weekend! <3

I've been loving coral lately too (I used to hate it). I absolutely love this dress! Hope you have a lovely week, Nikki!
I love the colour of this dress…it's like a breath of fresh summer air 🙂 And I love how you've paired it with a more neutral grey cardigan and black shoes to let the colour really shine. Hope you managed to avenge your sister – I'd probably opt for aftershave or something like that for some serious one-upmanship 🙂
Loving the coral!! My name is Coral, and as a fellow Ginger, I really feel we should utilize this color more. It's my fav!! Looks beautiful lady! 🙂
Corina Nika says

Tof kleedje, de kleur staat je goed!
What a simply stunning colour on you. Great choice! It really is the perfect summer dress.
My life is treating me well. Thanks for asking. 😉 Haha I spend my evenings sewing and sewing and when I'm lucky a break from sewing to do dishes and clean the house. 🙂 But I'm loving my summer so far.

Younger siblings. So irritating. I love how the coral brings out the color of your skin. I like coral and peach shades for the same reason.
Tamaras Blend says
Gorgeous outfit! I'm crazy about coral lately too – who would've thought, since I'm not a big fan of (too) bright colours. You look beautiful!
