Currently Craving: January 2016


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

It’s time for my first Currently Craving wish list of 2016! I’ve a couple of changes to this years version though. Instead of doing 20 items in a collage, I’m picking my 10 absolute favourite pieces each month to share with you, and then below I’m adding interactive photo collages from Shopbop that I love. I’ve chosen some amazing pieces that I like within the photos and each item is clickable in the picture, how cool is that? So you’re getting a much better mixture of top items for the month.

So what have I included above? The MCM Rabbit purse is one that I absolutely love! I wanted the last season rabbit purse but it sold out everywhere, so now MCM have a new rabbit design and it’s perfect. It arrived this morning and I’m obsessed with it! You can see it on my Snapchat and Instagram already (@LornaRaindrops). I’m also in love with the new Citizens of Humanity Liya jeans and have always wanted a Boda Skins leather jacket. The Chloe Susanna boots are a dream and I also want my Chloe Mini Drew bag in Off White now too! I just bought the perfect white crew jumper from Oasis to go under my leather jacket in multiple colours and the other pieces are items I think are cute! I’d love to know which items you love the most and if there’s anything you are currently craving?

My New Topshop Harp Metal Booties In Nude


Topshop Harp Ankle Boots In Nude

When I first saw these Topshop Harp Booties Metal Heel in Nude on the website a few weeks ago, I completely fell in love with them and knew they would make a great addition to my shoe collection. Nude shoes and boots are something that I don’t have enough of, especially boots, so when I saw these had a gold stripe down the heel too, I was even more sold! They had actually gone out of stock online in my size, so Adam tracked them down at his local Topshop and managed to pick them up for me, which was really kind of him!

I did originally try size 39 in these (UK 6) but I couldn’t get the zip done up, so they definitely run a little on the smaller side since I needed to size up to a 40 (UK7) which fits perfectly. The heel height is just over 4 inches I would say, so they are pretty steep and there’s no platform, so if you plan on wearing these quite often, you would definitely need to be an experienced heel wearer or I think they will end up giving you cramp or pains after a little while. That aside though, these look absolutely stunning with light blue skinny jeans tucked in! I’ve worn them twice now and I am obsessed with them! For a nude boot, these are definitely worth buying, regardless if you are a fashion blogger or not!

50 Shades Of Various Greys


Grey skinny jeans, a cropped top and a longline sleeveless jacket…

I titled this post around 50 Shades of Grey, not only because I’m excited to watch the movie very soon after reading the books, but also because I have become slightly addicted to grey lately, much to Adam’s delight! Ha ha. I’ve actually ended up buying a few various pieces in different shades of grey and I love them. I find grey to be so versatile, it’s like an alternative to black which is less harsh on my paler skin tone, so you can expect to be seeing more grey in my outfit posts.

One of my favourite grey pieces I own right now are these Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in London Calling. I adore these jeans as the Rocket is my favourite cut (similar here) and the grey distressed wash is gorgeous! You can read my review on these jeans over at The Jeans Blog. I paired my jeans with a Topshop Cropped Grey Top and then layered over my Topshop Longline Sleeveless Ponte Jacket in Grey. I bought this jacket in the Oxford Circus flagship store when I was in London in December and I can’t get enough of it, I even own it in navy too! It does run big though so I sized down to a 4 for a slimmer fit. I finished my look off with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black, a Topshop Aztec Necklace, some different pearl bracelets and finally, a subtle pink lip as red was too bold for the style.

It was really cold shooting these photos on the weekend down by the farm in the country lanes, it actually got really windy at one point and like some of you asked on my Instagram, I did have a coat with me, so I wasn’t always dressed like this! I’m not that crazy! I do like to keep warm and healthy, but the outfit looked much better without the coat for the photos and this is how I would have worn it if it wasn’t the middle of Winter. I hope you like the new look that I’m giving my blog with more professional looking photos, more sleeker outfits and I’m still working on the new blog layout, which will be soon! I’d love to know what you style bloggers and readers think of my outfit as always, reading your comments makes me smile!

Pretty Flowers Wrapped Around My Body


(Dress – Similar, Blazer – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Brooch – Similar, Ring – Exact, Bracelets – Similar, Necklace – Similar)

I wore this outfit on Sunday and it’s one that I had been planning to wear for a while, but I was waiting for the right temperature. It’s either been too hot or too cold to wear this, but Sunday seemed to be just right. I will say though that it’s the first time I’ve actually started feeling Autumn in the air. There’s a brisk chill that has been making my nose turn that shade of pink which always lets me know the season has changed.

I got this dress from Topshop quite a few months ago when it was in the sale. It’s not something that I would usually choose to wear as I’m not always that comfortable in bodycon dresses, but when I saw the floral print and how vibrant it was, I just completely fell in love with it. It’s unfortunately sold out, but you can definitely buy similar floral dresses online at Shopbop. I quite like the way it’s gradient and transitions from a lighter set of colours down to darker tones. I decided to throw my white Zara blazer over my shoulders just to add some structure to the look and then opted for my Kelya nude heels that you recently saw in another outfit post. I was going to go with my black Pigalle, but the contrast was just too harsh.

Now for my accessories, I wore various gold bracelets, a gold cross necklace and a blue topaz ring, all from Topshop. I also chose my beetle brooch from the brand as I hadn’t worn this yet either, despite having it for months. I love the iridescent body that it has and I thought it went well with the floral print on the dress. For those interested in my make-up too, I’m wearing my usual Barbara Panagos foundation, my Benefit They’re Real mascara with 3D fiber lashes on top and my lipstick is a combination of Pixi brilliance balm in red and a deep red/purple gloss. You can see more on make-up routine here, but I wouldn’t say I’m as into make-up as a lot of other fashion bloggers are.

And on a final note, I’m getting my hair cut on Thursday (it’s definitely been ages and has become unmanageable) and I’m going shorter. I’m thinking of getting about 4 inches or so cut off and my fringe put back in on the side, but quite a lot shorter. I also want some blonde highlights, but I hate sitting for ages while I have those so I wont have them done yet. Don’t forget to enter my Somerset Toiletry Company giveaway though!
