Zara Top With Embroidered Cuff (item no. 7288/290), size XS

I bought this Zara Top With Embroidered Cuff in ecru and navy blue since I feel in love with the lace details on the sleeves. It also came in a bottled green color that color is currently sold out online. I adore a simple, flowy top and this one is from their Trafaluc (TRF) line which means that it runs smaller than regular Zara tops. Size XS sleeves measure 23″ long and the length of top is on the shorter side at 22″. It’s 100% polyester and I am hoping it holds up well in the wash (update to follow). The tag specifically says do not dry clean. Update: The top washed well in cold and air dried. Also, if you want this top I found an exact dupe which is available here.

I have found my fair share of closet favorites from Zara over the years including my trusty utility jacket. I’m currently coveting these pieces but have yet to pull the trigger:

Draped Front Poplin Shirt (size S as seen on Esther of Demureest)

Checked Shirt with Pocket

Rigid Buckled Mini Messenger Bag

Two-Tone Sandal (I wear size 7-7.5 and Zara girl’s size 5 1/2 sometimes fits me)

Thanks for reading!

    Hello Jessica!Thank you so much for the recipe! i cant wait to try it. Your pic looked so delish and i loooove tofu!! I was thinking of substituting dried black black beans instead of the spicy one you mentioned — do you think that would be ok? I enclosed a pic. below. I will add some red pepper flakes to spice it up. The Asian store by me has such a limited # of items.Agree with Daniif92…you are a fashion inspiration and so adorbable indeed! I forgot about the store Zara….and wow, they do free return shipping!!!! oh yea! oh yea! *happy Snoopy dance*Til next post! You have a good week.

    You're welcome, Madie! You're so sweet! 😀 I'm not sure about these dried black beans since I've never used those before. I tend to stick with what I know unless I come across something I like more and/or saves me time. I think as long as you use a chilli/hot sauce it may turn out okay. I used to use this one in college.
