My 1000th Post & A Classic Autumn Outfit

Firstly, I wanted to start this blog post off by saying that I’ve sort of reached a milestone here on Raindrops of Sapphire. I have now published 1000 posts! Since I started my blog back in March 2010, I can’t believe I have managed to achieve that many blog posts in 4 years. When I think about how long a blog post can take me (up to 5 hours with everything involved), that’s a lot of hours spent here! It’s only made possible though with the support that you all give me, so thank you so much! It’s only improved and come on leaps and bounds as the months go by, so I am definitely excited to see what the future holds, especially for us fashion bloggers!

Getting to my outfit, this is a simple look that I wore to town a couple of weekends ago. I hadn’t worn these J Brand 910 skinny jeans in Coated Red in a while, I’ve actually had them for years, but I do love to try them now and again to get my coated red addiction under control! I paired them with a simple grey tee from ASOS and then my Zara zipper black blazer, which I am adoring at the moment! For my shoes, you probably remember my Giuseppe Zanotti loafers that I got in Italy last year, well I decided to go with those to smarten up a causal look. I usually have a lot of trouble with flats, making sure they are comfortable, but these are one of the comfiest flat shoes, ever! I finished the outfit off by layering my Ray-Ban mirrored blue aviators on my t-shirt to add some colour and chose a bit of sparkle with my Cambridge Satchel Mini in Black Glitter. So, what do you think of the outfit? Do you like it?

    Wow congrats on 1,000 posts Lorna! I’ll never forget stumbling on your blog looking for Hunter Rain Boots outfits and I was just floored with how amazing you looked then and how you’ve grown and evolved today. Heres to 1,000 more! I’m vouching your next pair of Hunters be the original tall pink!

      Thanks Eric! I’m really glad you like my blog so much! I actually just got some new Hunters, Cocoa Gloss, so they are a brown type of colour! I’m waiting for it to rain so I can wear them.

  18. September 9, 2014 / 2:34 pm

    Love the loafers!!! My friend from Paris has a line of you might love: Chatelles. I swear by them.

    Also I’ve never seen the glitter Cambridge satchel and all I can say is I need that and I needed it yesterday.

    Love your blog and I’ll definitely be following!!
