An outfit shoot on the Cheddar cliff tops
I’m finally sharing with you the photos from about a month ago at Cheddar Gorge. You may remember a few shots I showed you from part of my trip away, but here’s a full look at the outfit that I wore there. It was incredibly windy on the cliff tops as I’m sure you can imagine, so trying to keep my hair under control was a feat of its own, plus it was absolutely freezing, so we did our best. Some of the outtake photos from the shoot though are hilarious! I’m just happy we have some salvageable ones!
Cheddar is a beautiful little village area that reminds me of my childhood as I used to go there frequently with my gran and grampy, spending some time walking around the quaint little shops and enjoying the scenery as well as having a good old fashioned pub lunch. I even used to make pottery there and visit the cheese factory and sweet shop, so I hold a lot of fond memories of Cheddar in my heart. Unfortunately it’s changed for the worse over the last 17 years or so and no longer has most of the of the things that I remember, but there were still some areas that brought back memories for me, so it wasn’t all bad!
For my day trip there, I wore my comfortable Citizens of Humanity Rocket Jeans in Aura again, but layered them with my Topshop Roll Neck Sweater which is actually made in Britain! How cool is that? I then chose my Gina London Chukka Boots (which I got on sale for £45 from £150!) and finished it off with my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak. I wasn’t feeling all that well as I mentioned before, which is why I might not look my best in these photos, but we can’t all have great days, I guess these photos just make fashion bloggers a bit more real. Anyway, please do let me know what you think of my outfit and of course the little goats! I’d love to know!

A casual and warm windy beach outfit
These photos were taken a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I went to Burnham-on-Sea beach. We actually did shoot the whole look and not just Instagram snaps, so of course here it is. I have so much to share with you guys over the coming weeks and I can’t wait! Everything is scheduled in until around mid November, but I have some exciting posts that I’m really happy about!
Anyway, getting to my look here, I just went for something really simple and easy, pairing my Koral Los Angeles Merlot skinny jeans with a black vest top and my River Island grey cardigan. I cuffed the jeans and styled them with my Sam Edelman Petty booties in black and then added a pop of colour with my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Sycamore. It’s a lot colder now than when we took these photos, it’s crazy how much the season has changed now and how dark it’s getting. The clocks go back tonight and it’s going to get even darker again, this always makes outfit shoots so tricky! Anyway, let me know what you think of this outfit! Have you done anything fun this weekend?

A jewel tone Autumnal outfit
I’m checking in with you all! For those of you who follow me on Snapchat and Instagram (follow me @LornaRaindrops) you might already know that this week I have been on a small holiday and have been enjoying some time off. I’ve been to Burnham-on-Sea, Cardiff in Wales and recently today, I’ve been to Cheddar Gorge. I will say that it hasn’t been the easiest with my tiredness and I had to take a complete day of rest yesterday as I did much too much in Wales on Monday, but it was worth it. I got to see some amazing things, which I will share with you in another post soon.
I’ve noticed now that Autumn is actually here, in full force. It’s been really cold, windy and so many golden hues are cropping up when I’ve been out and about now, it’s beautiful. This was an Autumnal look that I put together a few weeks ago actually, during the end of Summer as I was really feeling in the mood to get the jewel tones going on and I had spotted that a few trees had started to shed their leaves early, so it made a great location for a few of the photos.
For my outfit, I chose to wear my Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in Axel with a burgundy top from River Island. I tucked the jeans into my old Kurt Geiger Winona boots and then finished it off with my Mulberry Mini Taylor bag in Sycamore with some various bracelets and a deer necklace. I adore wearing black skinny jeans with black boots in the Autumn as it lengthens your legs so much, but wearing a bold coloured top always helps take the attention away from it a little bit so everything blends. I can’t wait to start wearing more layers and boots soon as the weather gets even cooler. What do you think of my outfit? I’d love to know you readers and fashion bloggers think!

Seven Boot Lane Eloise Boots with an Autumn inspired outfit
I’m very much into ankle boots and skinny jeans when the Autumn comes around and it kind of becomes one of my signature looks. I love to cuff the skinny jeans though as I don’t often like the way jeans tuck into boots, so I rolled the hems of my Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Jeans in Aura up before pairing them with my new Seven Boot Lane Walnut Suede Boots. To keep with the Autumnal theme, I went with my New Look Suedette top which I layered my River Island cardigan over, finished with my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Sycamore and my Topshop necklace.
I absolutely adore the leopard belt strap on these boots, it’s such a unique touch and it goes so well with the two other shades against the dark brown. They are truly gorgeous! I found them in the Seven Boot Lane boutique in Bath a few weekends ago and fell in love with them, so I’m really happy to be working with them on this post. I took them in size 39 and I’m between a 39 and 40 if you need help with sizing. I wore them all day and was comfortable the entire time too, which is always a bonus.
Speaking of the brand though, the boutique is celebrating their 2nd birthday in their Milsom Place boutique in Bath, it co-insides with a late night shopping event called ‘Dress to Impress’ which a lot of shops and restaurants around Bath are getting involved in. Seven Boot Lane will be offering in-store offers and a complimentary drink as you shop so it will be a chance to meet the team, try on the boots and explore what Bath has to offer. It’s happening on Thursday 17th September, so make sure you check it out! My city has great heritage!
In terms of this location, we found some gorgeous little areas that we hadn’t shot photos in before when we were in town. The old Roman style buildings here and the countryside locations are so beautiful, I think they make photos so picturesque and different. I know this is a really casual and simple outfit, so finding some beautiful scenery really helps make the photos pop in my opinion. With the sun glowing and the warmer hues in my outfit, I quite like the basic simplicity of everything. It’s different and it’s proof that you don’t always need such bright colours to stand out. Just a little flare in what you choose to style the pieces with and how you wear them is all that’s needed. What do you think? And more importantly, aren’t these boots just gorgeous? They are so comfortable!
