Before we begin, I have to give a shoutout to my colleague, Nicole, who came up with this story idea. Partly because I would feel guilty not giving her credit for it and partly because I’m scared of her. But I digress. To fill you in, I am weirdly obsessed with Zara. My Who What Wear family has deemed me The Zara Scout and constantly counts on me for updates on the brand. While I am still a major fan of the brand, every now and again I venture out into uncharted territory and browse other affordable retailers. This week, the one that caught my attention the most was Mango.
Mango has never really been a store I buy things from necessarily but instead services me in other ways. For example, I head to the site to get creative styling ideas, to find affordable market for stories for all of you to shop, and to better understand certain trends. But this time around, I found myself adding pieces to my cart faster than ever before. Between the impeccably tailored separates, inexpensive strappy sandals, and the most stunning tie-dye pieces, I found myself so overwhelmed that I decided to write about it here. Hopefully, you’ll agree that these summertime clothing items are abnormally charming, but if you don’t, don’t @ me.
