Pastel Blue & Pollen Buff

I wore this outfit over the weekend while I was out with my boyfriend. You may recognise this coat as it’s almost identical to my yellow Zara coat, just without the pocket! It fits the same and I love pastel blue at the moment as I’m sure you have already noticed! I decided that one thing I needed to stock up on was some pretty coats as being a UK fashion blogger often means they are what I have to wear on a daily basis!

I layered my new blue Zara zippered coat over my Topshop cream peplum top as I love how peplum fits! It’s so flattering to the figure in my opinion! For my jeans, I went with my new dream jeans which I am in love with! My Rag & Bone The Skinny in Sonoma! I got these a couple of weeks ago and have been living in them as they are so perfectly fitted! I originally fell for the wash when I saw it in Harvey Nichols 2 months or so ago. They really are incredible and I recommend them to anyone! They always have such great washes and fits.

I tucked them into my old River Island boots and then, for my bag, I wore something brand new that you haven’t yet seen! My 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli in Pollen Buff! Isn’t it beautiful? I got it on Shopbop when they had a discount code as I had always wanted a Mini Pashli. I wasn’t 100% sure on the colour at first though as it’s a yellow with brushed orange over the grain, so it’s fairly unique, but I really like it now and have grown to love the colour. It’s pretty heavy for me, but it’s such a great bag! What do you think of the bag, the jeans or the outfit in general?

My Dream Bedroom/Closet – Inspiration & Ideas

Ever since I was little, I have been obsessed with the idea of having a bedroom/closet combination that’s perfect for me. I’ve always liked the idea of sleeping in a closet, so having a bedroom which is a closet would be the most ideal situation, ever!

At the moment I only have a small bedroom as I live in a house with my family, so I can’t dedicate a big room to store my things in, so my room is actually a mess. Being a UK fashion blogger means putting up with tiny houses! I have a lot of jeans and clothes stored in tubs, folded up in cupboards and on shelves etc as well as a lot of shoes being piled up in boxes and it’s hard to reach them. It’s definitely not the dream closet bedroom I have always wanted, but it’s all I can make do with at the moment. That’s why I thought it would be a fun idea to share some inspiration that I found online and speak about how exactly I would have mine laid out if I could! You can see a couple of previews of my current room here and here.

I know this photo above is from a store that sells a lot of jeans, however since I have over 400 pairs of jeans (I have been collecting them for 10 years), most of my closet will need to be dedicated to a jeans wall. I would absolutely love those boxed shelving units which you can get from Ikea as I can fold up lots of pairs and colour coordinate my jeans in them! I think that would look so cool! Having my denim range from light to dark blues, coloured, printed, black and grey, I think it would look really pretty as well as being incredibly practical. The photo above is like a dream come true for me! I think it’s amazing! Check out the rest of the photos I chose in this post.

In terms of my bedroom, I would love something like this! A lighter colour schemed wood, possibly maple or white (I currently have maple), and then a bold colour for the decor, like bright red or pink. I think that would look beautiful! This would be my sleeping and bedroom area, then at the other end of the room would be the closet! Hopefully!

Happy Easter From The Lorna Bunny

I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter! I hope you are having a wonderful day and have been enjoying your long weekend so far! Usually when it’s Easter, I do something different for my annual blog post. I made my own bunny ears two years ago and then made an Easter collage last year, so this year I thought I would up my game and do a bunny outfit! I’ve had this bunny onesie from Topshop for about 2 years actually, but never thought about wearing it on the blog as onesies aren’t exactly considered to be too mature, but I thought it would make a fun and playful post this time around as I don’t take myself too seriously, as you can clearly see from these photos! It also helps that I live in the countryside so I have a lot of woodland area close by to go with the bunny theme! I hope you all have a great rest of the day and don’t get sick by eating too much chocolate! Happy Easter again from the Lorna Bunny, ha ha! Lorna xx.

LookFantastic have a 20% off code for Easter called EASTER20 which means you can get 20% off make up and beauty products! Including Benefit, Lord & Berry, GHD, Murad etc! Don’t miss it!

Shopbop/East Dane have an amazing sale right now too on Rag & Bone, J Brand, Rebecca Minkoff, Citizens of Humanity, Wildfox and more!

The Basketball Tee

(Jeans – Similar, Tee – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Watch – Exact, Shades – Exact, Bracelet – Exact)

You may remember this Topshop Basketball Tee from my new purchases post that I made last week. Since it’s been plenty warm enough to actually go out in just a t-shirt, this is the first time that I actually got to wear it! I wore it to the Botanical Gardens on Sunday when I went to go and relax, feed the squirrels and birds and just enjoy the Spring time! It’s such a beautiful place and it’s one of my favourites when the weather is warmer. I take nuts and seeds and often sit in a quiet spot and feed the squirrels and birds from my hands as they can be quite tame if they trust you. I plan on posting more photos soon though! I’m really enjoying nature at the moment!

I paired my Basketball Tee with my trusty black Levi’s Skinny Jeans as these are one of my go to’s when it comes to black! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable, so they couldn’t be better if they tried! To keep with the black theme, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black to add some height and femininity to the look and then lots of accessories! I chose my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Black Critter Watch which I got from Shade Station, then also my Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Red Velvet, which you just saw yesterday! For bracelets, I went with my Bibi Bijoux Blue Crystal bracelet and a couple of others from ASOS. I’m really loving being able to wear lots of arm candy again! I never get much chance to wear it during the Winter as being a UK fashion blogger means I have to adapt to the seasons and long sleeves are always needed. It’s a nice change to be able to layer on my bracelets again! I hope you like the outfit and I have a cool post coming up on Sunday for Easter! I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below!
