International Women’s Day Outfit

Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining the Girl Scouts of Utah as they celebrated International Women’s day with an amazing dinner program at The Complex.  I love supporting the Girls Scouts since they provide much needed mentoring and education of girls.  This is always a fun event and I seem to run into other great women active in the Salt Lake community.

I haven’t done an outfit post in a while, so I took some photos of my outfit from yesterday.  This was a very Zara heavy outfit.  The blazer, faux leather peplum top and shoes were all found from Zara online.

This outfit works because the tweed blazer adds some polish to the slouchy boyfriend jeans.  The faux leather top works well under the blazer mostly because the break on the peplum is in line with the break in the blazer, so both flare out at the same point.  This can be tricky when layering a peplum top underneath something else.

Then there are the shoes.  I’m loving simple pointy toed shoes this spring.  These reminded me of the Alexander Wang pair that I picked up for my birthday, but about a 10th of the price.  I was most amazed at the fact that Zara had them in a size 5, which they almost never do.  The woven metallic toe piece is a great way to add a bit a shine to the outfit without overpowering.

Happy International Women’s Day and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Love the outfit. I’m actually thinking about purchasing the peplum top from Zara, but not sure about the sizing. Do you mind sharing what size you got? I’m usually an M for regular Zara, but not sure if I should go up a size since this is TRF. For reference, I’m 34-36″ bust, 27-28″ waist. Thanks in advance.

    • I usually purchase XS from Zara, so that is the size I am wearing. I admit that it is a bit snug and I could have sized up for a bit more room and not so sausage looking. I think that it would depend on your chest. If you are larger breasted, I would size up.
