Black-grey-white: Zara combination jacket in Ecru

Happy Saturday everyone! Cold and snow continue into spring in Boston this year. Though it is almost the end of March, temperature is just above 40F and snow is still piled in the corner. This time last year, I already wore mini skirts...

Sneakers or flats are always my choices in sick days, when I want to keep myself relaxed - I wore sneakers in the entire last week. Light or bright colors also help to lift my spirits! 

golden hour, raw picture comes out like this...

The reason I like to add this white Zara jacket to my closet is the length! Unlike all my other jackets, which either hit the hip or are cropped, this jacket covers the rear. I will wear it with skinny jeans or shift dresses. It is 80% cotton, 20% polyester, with full lining. After a careful check of the quality, I will say it is pretty well made. The only thing I am not happy with is the metal zipper, which is not very smooth. What is your solution for this issue? Thank you!

Since I have this white jacket, I plan to transfer my another Zara white blazer (here) for $55. It is 99% cotton, in size small, which I bought this time last year, and only wore couple times! It was dry cleaned once. No stain, no damage. Let me know if any of you are interested in it. 

Thank you for your reading!


  1. Yuan,
    I like your outfit. Thank you for your help to reserve that Celine bag in Barneys a couple months ago. :-) I love this jacket and enjoy reading your blog. I am not sure if it is too thick for spring? Can you help me to look at this skirt?
    I want to hear your opinion. Thanks.

    1. Hi Christy,

      You did get that bag at a good time! It seems the waiting list is pretty long now for a solid color (even tri-color) celine mini luggage.

      The skirt is pretty, but you may not like the fabric. Their faux leather not only looks faux, but also smells faux... And, the funny smell lasts forever.

      The jacket could be too thick for later spring... I will try to wear it as much as I can now, in the northeast !

  2. what size do you have in the jacket? :)

  3. For issues with zipper, I always try a little wax to make it zip smoother.
    Did you think it was true to size or did you have to go size down or up? What size do you normally take? I'm ordering a coat from Zara myself but don't know how to read their sizing.

    1. In general, Zara tops run one size small. I normally wear xs, but I always buy Zara small

  4. Schick und schlicht zugleich, wunderschön :-)
