OOTD The Pretty Pink Top - Shoppers Dilemma!

Hello lovelies :)

Today is an OOTD and my pink dilemma ! Basically ever since I saw a girl in work wearing the Zara pink sleeveless sheer shirt, I had wanted it real bad! It's a gorgeous bright, pastel pink, and would look perfect with a tan and during the Summer holidays. Whether it be rain or shine I could team it up with little white shorts in the sun, or some beige chino's in rainy England! Very practical and I had therefore convinced myself it was a 'must-have'. On the other hand, I had been a bit naughty with money recently and had to pay out for a few things as you do, so I was trying to budget myself when it came to clothes. The beautiful Zara shirt is £39.99, which isn't really expensive but my bank account was still unsure. As you can see I was having an absolute Nelly & Kelly about what to do... I wanted it so bad!

Look how pretty it is with it's little gold collar edges *sigh*, its also a lot brighter in real life than in the pictures.

Anyway, I ventured into town to see if there were any alternatives out there and came across a similar one in Topshop. It was also a beauty ! This time £32.00. This was much better as it was £8.00 cheaper and then £3.20 student discount. Yes, god bless the student card! So it would of course been, £28.80. However, I had to buy a dress for a wedding (I got a beauts one from Topshop which I will post after the weekend!) plus it was my friends birthday coming up, so I felt like I was spending loads. I still decided to keep the top on hold till the end of the day and I was pretty sure I was going to go back for it regardless and be a total reb.

THEN, I had the usual shopper stop off in H&M and whilst casually browsing I caught sight of some pink. The same colour as the other two shirts! Eek! There it was, a pink sleeveless shirt (not sheer), however, its a lovely soft material and otherwise identical to the one in Topshop with the low hem back. Not only this, the price tag read £7.99. What. I didn't have to think twice as I skipped to the till with joy. I wore my new shirt today and my bank balance can now rest a little while, till my next venture into town!

Does anyone else love the Zara shirt?
I think I love the whole shop at the minute to be honest!

Peace & Love



  1. Gorgeous! & you cant beat a bargin! Well done! :)

  2. You look lovely in the top.
    But personally I think £40 is rather expensive for a shirt, especially when it would be easy to make one for so much less, that doesn't stop them being gorgeous though.
