Jewel Tones On A Rainy Day


(Jeans – Exact, Jacket – Exact, T-Shirt – Exact, Bag – Similar, Wellies – Exact & Exact)

Rain, rain and more rain, is all it still keeps doing! I think this has been one of the craziest winters that I have ever experienced in my 25 years actually. It’s not really all that cold, which is very unusual for England too! Anyway, in my attempt to brighten up a rainy day, I went for a jewel tone colour scheme!

I wore my James Jeans Couture Skinny Jeans which I tucked into my Hunter Dark Ruby Gloss Short Wellies. I find these shorter wellies are more practical for wearing around town as they aren’t so big, plus I do adore the colour. I matched them with my H&M t-shirt which is a similar shade and then wore my French Connection Athena Faux Leather Biker Jacket in Black over the top. Just to add some more colour to the mix, I then wore my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Sycamore as I think yellow really livens the combination of burgundy and black up. I usually like to have a bright and colourful umbrella too, like the one in my banner, but I decided on a clear one for this outfit as the other colours wouldn’t really match too well!

On a different note, I have something very exciting to share with you next week that I can’t wait to say! I know you will love it too! If you follow me on Instagram though (@LornaRaindrops) then you might already have had a clue as to what it might be! Any guesses? What do you think of the outfit though, do you like it? How are you all managing to stay dry in the constant rain? Comment and let me know!

    Love this outfit, very simple 2 color pallet but it hits a home run. I like the way maroon looks on you, it really makes your blonde hair pop! And what can i say about your wellies i havent said already? You look great in them Lorna, excited to see your black pair when you get them

    • January 27, 2014 / 5:29 pm

      Thanks Eric! I already took photos of the black pair actually, so you will be seeing those very soon!

    Yay im so excited! Been wearing mine a lot lately, they go so well with so many outfits. Also i have some dress pics for ya, where would you like me to post them so i can get your opinion on them?

    • January 28, 2014 / 11:33 am

      I don’t mind! It’s up to you where you feel comfortable!

  8. January 28, 2014 / 8:03 am

    I love your Hunters, are those the shorter versions? I’ve always been iffy about those but they look great on you! πŸ™‚ The mustard bag is the perfect complement to that color too πŸ™‚

    • January 28, 2014 / 11:34 am

      Thanks! Yeah they are the short version. I was iffy too about them at first, but I really like them now as they look more young and sweet.

  9. January 28, 2014 / 3:31 pm

    Love those Hunters! I’ve got the same color in the taller boot but now I wish I had the short ones – they look so cute on you!

    • January 28, 2014 / 3:33 pm

      Ha ha, that’s funny because I wanted the tall version!

    • January 28, 2014 / 5:13 pm

      Yep! I love them!

    • January 28, 2014 / 8:03 pm

      Thank you lol!

    • January 28, 2014 / 8:03 pm

      Thank you Jynny!

    Those Hunters are so adorable!! I feel your pain when it comes to this winter. Here in Portugal the weather has been crazy too. Rain every single day and a very annoying wind. Aaaaaah, hate it!!

    • January 29, 2014 / 12:17 am

      Oh really in Portugal too? Isn’t it usually warm and sunny there?

      • January 29, 2014 / 12:33 am

        It usually is. Last year we only had rain for like….15 days, the whole year.
        But now it’s raining nonstop since the beginning of 2014. I guess I’ll have to get my own wellies. Hope I’ll find something similar to those you were using in these pictures.

        • January 29, 2014 / 12:43 am

          That would be cool! They are so much fun to wear, you don’t have to worry about wet feet at all!

    • January 29, 2014 / 4:42 pm

      I thought those were going to be photos of you in them! I like the first 2!

    Lol i wish, these are dresses im thinking of buying. I think the pink polo dress would go weill with my pink wellies and the black dress would be a great dancing dress

    • January 29, 2014 / 6:41 pm

      It would be! I think both would be great! Did you have a photo of your other dress you bought? On you?

  12. January 29, 2014 / 9:59 pm

    What a cute lil’ umbrella!!

    • January 29, 2014 / 10:40 pm

      Thanks Jamie!

    I havent taken one yet but i will sometime in the future, ive only worn it twice and the weather hasnt been very dress friendly right now

    • January 30, 2014 / 1:05 am

      Yeah, I completely understand that lol.

    • January 30, 2014 / 4:10 pm

      That reminds me of polo!

  14. Eric R
    January 30, 2014 / 4:20 pm

    The sport or the shirt?

  15. Eric R
    January 31, 2014 / 7:47 am

    Lol yes the shirt is a little bit like what polo players wear, however my experience with it we wore just regular polo shirts with numbers, would be really cute if i could wear a rugby during play! Those boots are super cute!! Sadly not in my size πŸ™ was gonna make me another purchase. Oh well. Ill stick to my collection of 5 i guess ;D

    • January 31, 2014 / 12:59 pm

      They are amazing! I fell for them as soon as I saw them! Little bit expensive for me though πŸ™

  16. Eric R
    January 31, 2014 / 3:26 pm

    Let me buy them for you. Would love to treat you to a pair of wellies

    • January 31, 2014 / 3:56 pm

      Oh gosh, that’s very kind of you, but I couldn’t accept, I wouldn’t feel right doing so πŸ™‚ Thank you though πŸ™‚

    January 31, 2014 / 3:57 pm

    No need to feel ashamed, i would feel incredibly honored if you would let me.

    • January 31, 2014 / 4:43 pm

      I couldn’t, but thank you!

    January 31, 2014 / 5:08 pm

    January 31, 2014 / 9:12 pm

    Good im due for a shopping day as well. Was ready to drop some money on a pair of new wellies but like i said none were in my size for the ones i wanted.

    • January 31, 2014 / 10:02 pm

      It’s a shame those navy pink stripe ones are not your size!

  20. Eric R
    January 31, 2014 / 11:56 pm

    Ugh i know i love the navy and pink color combo, looks amazing on stripes too. Would totally get a pink polo to go with them too!

    • February 1, 2014 / 2:07 am

      Pink jeans would be cool!
