These photos are from two weekends ago when I spent the evening in the Botanical Gardens with my boyfriend. It was pretty much deserted as it was quite late, so it was beautiful to have the place all to ourselves. Since I’m very light footed and a quiet person, animals are always drawn to me as I think they sense that I love them, so feeding them is something that makes me happy and just sitting with them. It’s so relaxing and calming and something that I need every now and then as I’m always so wrapped up in work.

I was lucky that it was warm out so I could still be in shorts. Speaking of which, these are my vintage Levi’s denim shorts in black from Urban Outfitters. I got these two years ago, not long after I got my blue pair, however I ended up with a smaller size and didn’t realise, so they had always been too tight on me, but since I have changed shape and lost a few pounds, they fit me now. Tightly I might add, but they do, so I can finally wear them! Now onto this gorgeous shirt, I saw it in the day time before going to the park. It was on the hanger in River Island and I just fell in love with it entirely. It’s really silky and the floral print is very intense and bold. I can’t wait to wear it again, maybe with jeans this time, but it looks great with either shorts or jeans. For my shoes, I went with my Topshop Koala espadrilles in Black as they are so comfortable. I’ve got a bit of a thing for espadrilles lately, since I can’t get hold of the Chanel ones, I thought I should make up for it with a black pair and I’ve worn these so many times! The comfort level is crazy as I wore them around London yesterday!

Now onto my accessories, yes, I have new Ray-Bans! I got these beautiful Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Purple from Shade Station and am obsessed with them! I already have the Erika sunglasses in red as you have seen before, so the purple is simply stunning in person! They are the velvet frames, just like the red pair, and the lenses are mirrored purple too. I’m adoring mirrored lenses! I opted for my Mulberry Lily bag in Oak too! For my jewellery, I have this lovely pink and navy bangle from Crew Clothing, my Mac by Marc Jacobs Blade Chrono Watch and some various other bracelets. So, it’s just a really simple and easy outfit for an evening in the park. I also have some really exciting news to share with you soon, but let me know what you think of this outfit! I would love to know!

Pastel Blue & Pollen Buff

lorna burford blue zara coat Pastel Blue & Pollen Buff

(Jeans – Exact & Similar, Coat – Exact & Similar, Top – Similar, Bag – Exact, Boots – Similar)

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?

Little Woodland Animals Upon My Blazer

bird blazer genetic denim jeans Little Woodland Animals Upon My Blazer

(Jacket – Exact, Jeans – Exact, Bag – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Bracelet – Exact)

How adorable is this blazer? When I first saw it on the Choies website (after being asked by them to style something) I thought it matched my personality perfectly. I love little birds, squirrels and woodland animals and being around nature in general as you know, so it’s the perfect choice for me! I got this in a size small, but since Choies is from China, it’s actually a bit small on me and I probably should have got the size medium, but it’s got a little bit of stretch to it to make it fit me ok. I love the idea of blazers and jeans together, it’s one of my favourite combinations, so I thought pairing the woodland blazer with my new Genetic Denim Shya jeans would be a great choice. The rips and distressing on these combined with the lighter wash make these jeans a good match to tone the look down. I think if I went with a darker wash jean, it would look too put together and smart and I wanted a causal ease to my outfit, plus these jeans are incredibly soft and comfortable.

Now on to my accessories, I paired the jeans and blazer with my Topshop Gabbi metallic toe cap heels in black just to go with the colour scheme. The blazer has pops of black on the inside and at the sleeves, so it tied in nicely. I’ve worn these shoes a lot of times, as well as my nude version of them, and I absolutely adore them! They are the perfect heel height and I find them comfortable as they don’t slip off my feet much like normal heels tend to do. To add some colour to my look, I went with my new Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB in Port, which you just saw in my previous outfit post. It’s an amazing bag as I love the structure and the deep burgundy it has. It has more of a rich jewel tone to it and can be worn with a shoulder strap like I did last time or carried by the handles. I will be sharing it with you soon though in a proper post, so stay tuned! Finally, for my jewellery, I wanted to keep things a little understated as I had a great print with the blazer, so I only opted for one bracelet and chose my River Island iridescent beetle bracelet. I thought it added some liveliness to the outfit and just made things that little bit more classy!

Speaking of bracelets, I was browsing online at Traveller, which is a holiday shop, and they had the most amazing watch! It has a burgundy rubber bracelet and a silver/white face. You know how much I love burgundy and have been looking for more burgundy bracelets, but I was thinking if I had a watch that was burgundy, I wouldn’t need the bracelets! The best part about this O-Clock silicone watch is that it’s in the sale, so I might just need to snap it up! I think I am becoming a bit addicted to watches though, I’ve developed quite a little collection over the past two years or so! It’s always so tricky during Autumn, there’s always so many pieces that I want to purchase! Do you find that as well during this time of year? There’s lots of gorgeous jackets and coats that come out and then you need boots and accessories like scarves and jewellery to go with it! Anyway, back to my outfit, what do you think of it? Leave me a comment and let me know! I always love reading them and getting ideas!

Some New Autumn Clothes & Accessories Purchases

gold bracelets nail polish topshop river island Some New Autumn Clothes & Accessories Purchases

I haven’t done a new purchases post in quite a while, so I thought it was about time that I did. Over the past month or so I have acquired a few new things while trying to stock up my Autumn wardrobe! You probably already know by now that Autumn is my favourite time of year and I can never get enough jackets and coats to suit the season. I’m also very much addicted to accessories in the form of jewellery and anything sparkly!

Above I have 3 new little things that I got as I am loving gold at the moment. I have a nail polish from Topshop in a pale and pearly gold which I think is absolutely gorgeous! I managed to finally stop biting my nails about 2 months ago so I can’t wait to start painting them! I purchased the other 2 bracelets from River Island when I fell in love with them. I’m a sucker for gold chains and had been wanting one as a bracelet for some time. I’m not really a fan of the bracelets with clasps though as it’s pretty impossible to put them on and off yourself, so when I saw this one with a t-bar closure, I knew it would be perfect! Finally, that brings me to the beetle bracelet, isn’t it amazing? The coloured stones were what originally attracted me to the bracelet in the first place as I love rainbows, but I think the giant beetle on the front of it gives it so much character! It’s gorgeous!

topshop mint green toe cap heels Some New Autumn Clothes & Accessories Purchases

I have 2 pairs of the Topshop metallic toe cap heels already, so these now make a third! I own the black and silver combination as well as the nude and silver, but now I have here a pair in mint with silver! These style shoes are amazing because they aren’t too high, they are about 3 inches in height and they fit securely on my feet so I don’t have to do any sock trick to stretch my shoes or putting tape in my shoes to keep my feet in. They are the perfect fit! I also think mint is a pretty shade of pale green, it might be more suited to Spring, but I’m not too worried! The best part about these shoes? I won them on eBay for only £7 and they were brand new! It doesn’t get better than that does it?

Zara grey black wool coat jacket Some New Autumn Clothes & Accessories Purchases

This gorgeous thick jacket or lighter weight coat is from Zara. I purchased it last month when I fell in love with it online. I was in need of a new grey coat as the only one I have is about 4-5 years old, so this one really fits the bill! I like the black accents it has on it and the woolen collar. It’s definitely a gorgeous coat and I can’t wait to wear it with my jeans and heels when it gets cool enough. Do you like it?
