I have always had a lust for Rebecca Minkoff mini bags as I just love the way they look, but for a really long time I never felt like I should purchase one as I didn’t know if they were really my style. My mind changed though as soon as I saw the new spring colours of lilac and mint. I wasn’t sure on the lilac mini mac at first when I bought it, but it quickly grew on me! The things throwing me off originally were how heavy the bag was for a small cross body and generally it not being very stand out. I ended up changing my mind though the more I looked at it and tried it on and it’s become one of my favourites. I think the subtlety of the pastel purple is really nice for a change.
So that was my first Rebecca Minkoff bag and I got it at the beginning of April last month. I had been deciding between the two, the mini mac in lilac and the mini 5 zip in mint, but I decided on the purple first due to it being more versatile for me. The mini 5 zip in mint actually went out of stock not long after, so my thoughts of purchasing it in the future were squashed. I was looking online for some weeks in the hope that it would come back in stock, and eventually it did! So I never even hesitated and snapped it up quickly.
Buying both of these blew out my shopping budget for about 2 months though which is why I haven’t been buying anything else ha ha. I really love these 2 bags and think they are so pretty. I have quickly gotten used to the weight of them and I don’t find it that bad at all. Even though these are my first 2 Rebecca Minkoff bags, I think I can safely say they will be my only 2 as well. Not because I don’t love her bags, but simply because I have one of each of the styles and I don’t like to repeat on colours if I have them in other bags. It may depend though in the future if an amazing colour comes out, we will have to see. But as it stands at the moment, I’m happy with my collection of 2!
Do any of you own a Rebecca Minkoff? Also, would you like me to do a video review of these bags as well on my YouTube channel? I definitely can if you would like me to! You can buy the Rebecca Minkoff mini bags online at Shopbop.com where I purchased them.

I got given this adorable floral playsuit by the lovely people at Lipsy. I got to choose it from the site and I knew instantly that I would really like the cut and it would be the most flattering one on my figure. I’m glad I chose this one as I think it’s so sweet and girly! Luckily it was warm enough to wear it on Sunday, but it did make me realise just how pale I am, ha ha!
I’m wearing a Lipsy Floral Playsuit, Topshop Shirley Wedges, an ASOS Mustache Watch, Ray-Ban Aviators and various different Bracelets.
The last time I wore anything by Lipsy was about two years ago when I bought one of their dresses to attend a friends wedding. I’ve worn quite a few playsuits before, but usually I have to make sure they are stretchy as I have quite a long torso and they can cut in sometimes (if they are rigid) as my torso is too tall for a lot of them. Do any of you love playsuits? What do you think of my outfit?

As usual, I like to post some of my best and favourite Instagram snaps in a blog post twice a month. I know there are many of you who don’t use Instagram, so I think it’s important to share these with you as well. For those of you who do have Instagram, I would love for you to follow me @LornaRaindrops. I post lots of behind the scenes photos with things I am up to, new clothes, outfit previews, food, my cats and more! I think Instagram is a great look into a bloggers life as you get to see parts of their everyday activities!
This was a preview photo that I put on my Instagram when I was taking photos for my new banner! I thought it looks cool!

I wore this outfit yesterday to town with my boyfriend. It was quite warm out for a change so I took the opportunity to wear neons again. I bought this denim jacket almost a year ago from Topshop and since I got it towards the end of summer, I never got the chance to wear it. I really like the colour of it though and how it fits, it goes really nicely with my bag.
I’m wearing Koral Skinny Jeans, a Zara T-Shirt, a Topshop Neon Yellow Denim Jacket, Grey TOMS, a Forever 21 Neon Yellow Bag and my Ray-Ban Blue Mirrored Aviators.
Another obsession of mine is Koral jeans. You know already that I tend to wear my burgundy pair all the time, however I just recently got these as well and I have been living in them since! I am wearing my new favourite sunglasses again too as I just love them! I find them to be so cool and pretty with the mirrored blue lenses. I’ve also included some photos of mine and my boyfriends lunch below! On a different note, did any of you watch Eurovision last night? And what do you think of my outfit? Comment and let me know!
