The weather has been weirdly warm the past week or so and I couldn’t be more happy! It means I can go out without my heavy layers on for a change! I wore this outfit when I went out to lunch last Saturday with my boyfriend, typically we chose Wagamama’s and I’m sure you will know that’s usually a place you can find me, ha ha! I wanted something comfortable and easy for the day which is why I chose this outfit. I got this Wildfox Glitter Heart Sweater from Shopbop when they had their sale and I absolutely love it! I’m a huge fan of Wildfox as their jumpers/sweaters are so cosy and comfortable, I can never get enough of them! I paired this one with my AG Adriano Goldschmied The Legging Jeans in 12 Years Dwight as these are one of my favourite blues when it comes to skinny jeans! The wash is incredible and I have worn them so many times!
For my bag, I chose my Cambridge Satchel 11″ in Vintage Brown as it’s one of my go to bags when I’m just running some errands and then opted for my Isabel Marant Bekket Sneakers in Khaki for my footwear. This was my first time actually wearing these shoes outside as I have been trying to stretch them out, but they actually gave me a blister as they are still too tight! I’m still holding out hope that they might stretch some more! When I looked at these photos though I did notice just how long my hair has got and how much my blonde ombre has grown out now! Anyway, let me know what you think of the outfit in the comments below! Also, in case you missed it, I hope you can check out my video Q&A I did for my blogs 4th birthday yesterday!

So today is my blogs 4th birthday and I honestly can’t believe just how fast it’s gone! It still only feels like last year I was on my bed thinking up the name Raindrops of Sapphire at about 3am in the morning when I couldn’t sleep! These 4 years have just flown by and I’m really thankful for how much my blog has grown in this time, even though it’s been incredibly hard work, I’m very happy that all of you follow my posts and enjoy reading it! So, in honour of my 4th birthday, I thought I would do a video Q&A for you so you can get to know me a little bit better, in a more personal format. You can watch it above. I hope you like it and as always, let me know what you think in the comments below or if you have more questions!

I got these amazing Versailles print jeans from Hudson and I knew just how I wanted to style them! Something classic that made the jeans the focal point, but something that really stands out as well. The print on these jeans is amazing! I fell in love with them when I originally saw them at the Hudson press day last year, it’s literally like a photo printed on top of the jeans, in a similar way to my Hudson London print jeans, except this time it’s the beautiful Versailles in France. Even though these are printed I actually find them incredibly flattering as the print is darker and subtle enough to not make your legs look wider. It’s so unique and beautiful!
I paired these jeans with my Zara faux leather front top as it’s a unique looking top and really matches well with darker jeans. To keep things within the black colour theme and flowing, I chose my Topshop Salma heels to add some length and height to my legs, which these shoes are perfect for! Since I always like to add a bit of colour to my outfits, I opted for my Cambridge Satchel in Wine Matte and my old Merle O’Grady crystal necklace. I’ve always been in love with this necklace as it’s so sparkly and colourful, it’s like a dream come true for someone who loves colour as much as me! I suppose this is a fairly simple outfit in terms of pieces, but I do love how bold it is without being too over the top. What do you think of it? Do you love the jeans? Comment and let me know your thoughts!

I got to choose these gorgeous Ombre Blue TOMS to style and I couldn’t have been more excited! I love TOMS as you know and have about 4 pairs of them already, they are perfect for running errands in and I love them with outfits as they are sleek, but most of all I really do like their one for one policy where they donate shoes to people in need for every pair purchased. I wanted to embrace Spring and go with something colourful which is why I chose my Zara pink blazer and a paler pink top underneath to contrast against the blue. To add another primary colour to the mix I then chose my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie bag in Dandelion to brighten things up even more. I wanted to keep a base tone though and something neutral which is why I opted for my Hudson Nico white skinny jeans, to counteract too much colour. For my accessories, I chose my beloved Swarovski Tinkerbell necklace and my Adele Marie fuchsia Swarovski bangle, both of which I have had for some years! I’m incredibly ready for Spring now and can’t wait to start colour blocking more. What do you think of the outfit? Comment and let me know!
