Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On…

topshop sandylion burgundy flats slippers gold lion Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On...

And suddenly everything’s right…

I just had to sing that since I’ve always loved that song! I haven’t done a new shoes post in a long while, I think since I got my Jimmy Choo’s back in April/May, so I thought it was about time that I did. Last weekend when I was in town doing some window shopping and having lunch with Adam, I came across these gorgeous slippers in Topshop. These are the Sandylion slippers in burgundy and they are amazing!

Usually cheaper flats really hurt my feet (which is a downfall for us fashion bloggers as there’s some gorgeous ones out there), but I tried these on anyway since I fell in love with them and was pleasantly surprised when they didn’t hurt my heels! They are made of a really soft suede like velvet fabric and are incredible comfortable! The gold lion head medallion on the front is also really eye catching. I’ve worn these three times already with black and indigo jeans and a pair of leather look leggings. They really do go with everything and I can guarantee these will be making more appearances on my blog soon! Buy them in the UK by clicking here and in the US by clicking here. They are only £24 which is an amazing price!

Sailor Inspired Outfits With Crew Clothing

This is a bit of a fun post for me because I’ve teamed up with Crew Clothing to bring you something different, sailor and nautical inspired looks! You may remember this outfit that I wore back in February last year and it was one of my favourites. I’ve always had a weakness for the navy and white combination and nautical is a love of mine. I have also included another outfit that I wore a few years ago featuring a navy and white striped skirt with a navy tank top. That one was sailor themed too, but in a more girly way. Anyway, this little collaboration with Crew has been exciting because I’ve styled a few outfit looks that I would wear myself, using some of the pieces they stock as the navy and nautical theme is something they do best! I would love to know which of the three outfits you like the most and what you think of my personal outfits too! Let me know! I think a lot of other fashion bloggers would look great in these!

Of course this outfit here is very me, I love the white skinny jeans with the striped tank as it’s a great combination, but I don’t feel like it would be something I adored unless there was a shade of burgundy in there somewhere! That’s why I went with this gorgeous blazer! I really love boat shoes too and tan accessories, so I think that rounds it up nicely and need I say more about the watch? Daniel Wellington make some of the best watches! This one just matches perfectly!

I’ve always loved gladiator sandals, but funnily enough I’ve never owned a pair. They have always ended up too baggy around my calves and looking sloppy. I saw these really pretty Kurt Geiger Maddie gladiator sandals a while back on their website and they looked perfect since they had buckles to tighten the calves and a zip up the back. I was lucky enough to find them on sale for only £30 so I snapped them up in an instant! I paired them with my Levi’s denim shorts and a thin Zara knitted jumper, keeping everything neutral. To match the shoes though, I went with my Mulberry Lily in Oak and then my Urban Outfitters deer necklace, finally finished off with my metallic blue beetle ring that I got from Topshop ages ago. I think this is something really easy and casual and a great way to transition into the Autumn weather! What do you think of it? I know a lot of fashion bloggers tend to have similar tastes and one of my friends, Tara, has these in black!

The Summer Dress With The Pink Roses

(Dress – Similar, Bag – Exact, Watch – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Necklace – Similar)

First off I want to start by saying that I apologise for the lack of photos in this post, but I had some issues with my MacBook not saving the images correctly and I lost about 75% of them. It’s been so annoying since I lost all of the detailed shots of my bag, jewellery, shoes etc and I only ended up with 4 photos left from the whole shoot. Luckily I did upload a couple of shots to my Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) on the day of the photo shoot so I have managed to incorporate those as well, but again, I apologise for no real close up photos of the shoes and things. It’s been a nightmare!

Those of you who have been a fan of my blog for a long time will know that I have had this floral River Island dress for a few years and each Summer I tend to break it out and style it in a different way. I’ve worn it before here and here and this is the first time that I have tied a black belt around the middle to make it a little different. I paired this dress with my Kurt Geiger Nina sandals which I got in the sale a few weeks ago. For my accessories, I chose my Cambridge Satchel Mini in Neon Pink, my Olivia Burton pink and gold watch, some various bracelets and my Swarovski Heart necklace. All tying together with the pink theme!

I think there is just something so classic about a floral dress for Summer. Funnily enough, I don’t often see a lot of fashion bloggers wearing one as they tend to favour denim shorts like I do, but it definitely makes a nice change! Speaking of Summer though, Fashion Month is underway and I put together a round up of the SS15 denim trends on my other blog, The Jeans Blog. You should definitely check that out! I also have numerous other really cool denim posts on there and I know a lot of you love denim as much as I do! So, what do you think of the outfit? Comment and let me know! It’s always nice hearing your thoughts on my looks!
