Simply Green & Black


(Top – Similar, Leggings – Exact & Similar, Shoes – Exact, Bag – Exact)

After my trip to London last week, I wanted to wear something comfortable for traveling back home, albeit this outfit. There’s nothing I dislike more than being uncomfortable and restricted when it comes to journeys in cars and trains. If the surroundings sort of look familiar to you, that’s because we shot these photos when I arrived home, not before. Plus, a couple of shots I was caught Instagramming (@LornaRaindrops) as usual!

I wore my Zara knitted green jumper/sweater with my Denimocracy Anarchy knit leggings in Onyx. I actually have 4 of these jumpers in different colours as I love them so much! I have pink, black, yellow and this green one. They were super cheap and are incredibly comfortable! Of course you have seen these leggings before too, they have been a pair that I always drift towards when it comes to thicker and comfortable leggings. They are perfect! For my shoes, I wore my Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers in Black and you actually haven’t seen these before. You have seen my Khaki version, but I got the black a couple of months ago on eBay for a great price as it’s much more classic. They are way more versatile to wear with numerous things.

I said that I would tell you about the holdall that I took with me for the weekend for my trip to London, so here it is! It’s the Nica Christine Weekender bag in Pink Tulip and it was such a life saver! It’s big enough to fit 2 pairs of jeans, 4 tops, pyjamas, underwear, make-up, body products, vitamins, a hair brush etc without any problems! It literally carried all of my essentials and everything I needed, it even came with a separate make-up bag in the same print which I used. I didn’t want to take my suitcase with me at all as I didn’t need something that big just for a couple of days away, so I’m really glad I got this tote from Nica, it turned out to be perfect and I’m definitely going to be using it every time I go away! It’s also waterproof I think as the outside of it has a sheen to it, which is incredibly useful if you are a UK fashion blogger!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend so far and have some fun plans for the bank holiday tomorrow! I think I’m spending it quietly! Speaking of which, one of my favourite beauty shops online, Look Fantastic, has some incredible deals at the moment! 15-20% off, free products with purchases and more! I’ve already taken advantage of it and bought some Kerastase and Redken hair products! I perhaps spent a little too much, but whenever there are amazing deals like this, I just can’t pass them up! There’s even money off make-up from Benefit and Bare Minerals as well as hair products like GHD! Plus, you get lots of free gifts with certain spends and certain purchases! Check out all of the deals you can get in my post here.
