I Tried to Quit Zara, But These 24 Items Are Pulling Me Back

Don’t get me wrong—I love Zara. In fact, I think I like it too much, hence my many attempts to quit the fast-fashion magnet over the years. Why quit, you may wonder? Well, as you may have read in my past stories, my approach to shopping is one (ideally) of investment. This means, for example, splurging on one timeless bag every once in a while, rather than picking up multiple lower-priced, trendy versions here and there. Or buying dresses that feel like they can be worn across multiple seasons and are classic, rather than ones that feel super of-the-moment that I’ll quickly tire of.

Unfortunately, however, this is much more easily said than done. As you can tell from some of my other stories, or just my Instagramming alone, I’m still a sucker for the latest trends, the greatest affordable finds, and of course: Zara. This is especially true at this time of year because if you ask me, summer is when Zara does some of its best work. Think fun bags, cool dresses, statement sandals, easy-to-wear tops, and of course, the cutest beach cover-ups. So to see the Zara pieces that are making me have a fashion relapse this season, simply continue on below. But don’t say I didn’t warn you—they’re really good.

That’s all for Zara, but shop more summer pieces I’m loving here
