A little while ago I was window shopping in Zara, as I so often do when I found an oversized denim jacket with lace-up detailing around the waist and arms. I’m usually all for body-con and fitted clothes so my desire for this jacket took me by surprise.

Noticing the £50 price tag though made me continue to wander through the shop, but I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. And it’s those pieces I know I should get, treat myself too. Thinking about it, pairing it with outfits in my head means I am going to get my use out of it. Right? Then Shein contacted me for a collab, a brand that I mentioned here in this post that I would love to buy from (Yes, I literally did a happy dance when they asked for a collab). I went looking through the pages and came across two slightly different variations of the Zara denim jacket, these had black lace-up detailing instead of cream-white and the style was ever so slightly different. I had to get it! One, because it was literally half the price, Two, I said I wanted to try out their pieces so what better way and Three, well if I loved the jacket then I could tell you, my readers, that it was amazing and save you money! No brainer.
