Transitioning with Zara


We're at the start of spring and the beginning of April, a time for a new season. Spring is so beautiful, I don't see how anyone can not appreciate spring. We are in the transition period, some days are still chilli enough for a scarf, other days a coat alone is better suited.

I picked up this coat from Zara, who are killing it right now! I also couldn't resist getting one of their scarfs, because they are so big and cosy! This coat isn't that thick either so this combination is great to have for this transition period!

Periods of transition in life always bring new challenges and change is never straight forward. I think when you are in a transition period in life whatever that may be, you have to be realistic with yourself. Don't expect everything to be perfect straight away. Change is a process.

A lot of change is happening in my life right now, and very likely yours too, so we all know that it's easy to become inpatient. When you are in the thick of it, you have to remind yourself that you will come out the other end. 

Change requires you to do new things and new things are hard because you have never experienced them before, but with experience comes knowledge and skills. Eventually you will come out the other end and you will have gained valuable skills and knowledge to assist you going forwards. Therefore although it is tricky, you know that it will be worth it. This is the one thing that I always try to remember.

When I am experiencing something new, I know at first it will be difficult but I look forward to the day when I have gained experience because of it and feel more confident and wiser as a person. If you avoid challenges then you will never grow. I even think that when we train ourselves to face challenges, the more we do this, the easier it gets to face new challenges!

I hope you are having a good week and I wish you well with any transitions and changes that you are currently going through!

  2. I love this transitional outfit; the all-black suits you so well and the blanket scarf adds a gorgeous, chic edge to the look! I've also been picking up blanket scarves from Zara lately and loving the many ways of styling them :)

  16. Would you believe I've never purchased a Zara scarf and they're the ones who started the whole blanket scarf trend and obsession! I have to snag some because they're designs are so beautiful, like the one you're wearing. I love what you wrote about change and I couldn't relate more now that I'm pregnant with my first child. It's an array of emotions and it's definitely the beginning of a transitional season for me, but I know it's worth it and I'm so eternally grateful. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!
