"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

My love affair with Zara

It's no secret that I love fashion and one of my go to stores is Zara.  Whether it's a great pair of shoes or a gorgeous coat I can always find something that has to come home with me.  Here are a few favourites I've got my eye on for fall.

I love these velvet loafers.  They would look great with jeans!

A great neutral scarf with an interesting pattern

A great pair of boots with a little western detail around the toe

I love a great easy dress and this one is a must have

A velvet coat to dress up any casual outfit

This jacket has great detail and colour

Another great coat

Can never have too many coats!!  This one has leather sleeves.  Love it.

Don't be afraid to add a pop of colour with a great bag


  1. I must be thinking shoes...love the loafer and the boot!!

  2. I love Zara too! Sometimes they're a bit random with sizing but some of my fav pieces have come from there, I love their coats!

  3. Can I have one of each please? Great Style!

  4. They have great style. I once bought a winter coat for $25 from Zara! It was way too long for anybody which is why it wasn't selling but it was so easy to alter and with 1/2 hour of work I had a great new coat.

  5. I'm so happy Zara finally opened online e-commerce. It's the place to find the best trends at an affordable price.
