I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday and I’m super excited that today is Black Friday! Since I live in the UK, Black Friday hasn’t really been something that happens here in a big form, but this year it’s insane! Every shop is doing a Black Friday discount, literally every one! I’ve listed all of the amazing sales for the Cyber Weekend below and I’ve also included a gift guide/wish list for my Currently Craving November post! I thought the two tied in with each other perfectly!

All of the pieces I have chosen are from a site which is holding lots of deals and sales, so you can expect to get your clothes cheaper! I love everything I have chosen and already have a few pieces in the mail! If you do love something, it would mean a huge deal to me if you bought it via my website, after clicking the links. It lets the stores know that I referred you and I’m eligible for a small commission from the sale, so it would be a huge help! Just thought I would put that out there. Since Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, a huge thank you goes out to you for being loyal readers of Raindrops of Sapphire!

Getting My Look With Warehouse

I’m really excited to have teamed up with Warehouse to bring you this get the look post, featuring their winter coats. I’ve owned and bought quite a few pieces from Warehouse in my time and I think it’s a fantastic high street store, so I couldn’t be happier to do a get the look post like this.

I’ve selected three outfits of mine from Autumn/Winter and I’ve chosen pieces from the Warehouse website so you can re-create the looks! Some of them are pretty identical, while others only vary slightly. So if there were some outfits of mine you loved, now is the time to shop them and copy my look fellow fashion bloggers! Which one do you like the most?

The outfit above is one of my favourites! I love a faux fur collar on my coats and keeping it simple with neutrals is key, so for this inspired outfit, I started with their beige faux fur collar coat which looks pretty similar to mine. I then chose this cream jumper to layer underneath for warmth and opted for the black skinny jeans to create my ensemble. Then for the accessories, I chose these gold rings and finished it off with some Jimmy Choo Melba boots and then a Mulberry Lily in Oak.

The Berry Faux Leather Jacket With Skinny Jeans

(Jeans – Exact & Similar, Jacket – Exact, Shirt – Exact, Shoes – Exact ON SALE)

As part of my Zappos and The Jeans Blog collaboration, one of the ideas is to style these gorgeous AG The Legging Ankle Contour 360 jeans in Crater. I got them a little while ago and I think they are absolutely beautiful! So tomorrow, I will be reviewing and styling them on my other blog, in depth. Be sure to check that out!

For this look though, I went with my New Look white sleeveless shirt and then layered on my ASOS textured biker jacket in berry. I had been searching for a burgundy faux leather jacket since last year and I couldn’t find one in the right shade at all or the right material. I was so excited when this one came online that I snapped it up instantly and I am so glad that I did. I took a size UK 6 in it as it does run a little on the big side. For the shoes, I went with my new Topshop Golly burgundy suede heels with a gold toe cap and heel. These were another impulse purchase, but the colour of them is simply stunning and for a pointed shoe, you wouldn’t believe how comfortable they are! Seriously!

Also, I have some super exciting news! The SHOPBOP Sale just went live, the biggest event of the year! You can get up to 25% off your order! That’s on sale and full priced items, for one week! How amazing is that? Just enter the code GOBIG14 at the checkout to get these discounts: Spend $250 and get 15% off, Spend $500 and get 20% off and Spend $1000 and get 25% off.

It’s such an amazing sale! Think of the discount you can get on those long awaited boots, bags and jeans! Super exciting! I can never be without Shopbop as I’m sure you have noticed! It’s one of my favourite stores! Anyway, I would love to know what you think of this outfit! Comment and let me know!

P.S – My blog is nominated for the UK Blog Awards and it would mean a huge deal to me if you could vote for it! It only takes a couple of seconds, putting in your name and email, that’s it! It would be fantastic to get shortlisted officially. I truly do work as hard as I possibly can on my blogs and to be recognised for it (amongst other fashion bloggers) would be a dream come true!

Camel, Tan, Beige & White

I can’t believe that it’s almost December soon and it still hasn’t got absolutely freezing, below zero yet. There are still lots of trees with their Autumn leaves and it’s not too far off Christmas. It seems like the weather and seasons are changing so much lately, especially here in England, but I’m not dismissing how it’s changing in other countries too. I’m quite enjoying it being warmer though, I really hate it when it’s so cold and you can’t feel your body.

Getting to my outfit, I wanted to go for something really neutral, incorporating tan, beige, white and camel together, to go with a Autumn theme. For my jeans, I went with my Hudson Nico in white (similar here) and then paired them with my camel jumper from Zara. I layered on my Zara beige coat and wrapped my Topshop brown scarf around my shoulders. Coming to my accessories, I chose my Mulberry Lily in Oak and my Kelya nude heels, finished off with my Urban Outfitters deer necklace and a Santo Domingo copper cuff with bead work on it from Parcel & Journey. I got this cuff a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s gorgeous, I love the copper base metal with the mix of pink and orange beads, it’s really pretty and unique!

We shot these photos last weekend in the Botanical Gardens, which is one of my favourite places here in Bath. The squirrels and birds were all out looking for some nuts, you can see one of the adorable magpies behind me waiting patiently for his food! I think the park is so beautiful at this time of year. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and have some great plans for this week! I would love to know what you think of my outfit, please do comment and let me know!
