Classics & Florals Down By The River


Black tuxedo skinny jeans with a floral shirt and white blazer…

I hope all of you are doing well! I’m really excited that it’s supposed to be warming up this weekend which means I might not actually be freezing my butt off while doing an outfit shoot! We were scouting around for some new locations for this one and we found this gorgeous lock area down by the river. A boat was actually coming through the lock at the time though, so we had to wait for that to pass through. It really is such a beautiful setting!

I was wearing this gorgeous floral silky top from Ted Baker which I paired with these AG Contour Tuxedo Black Jeans, both of which I chose from Repertoire to style together. As it’s colder though, I had to layer my Zara White Blazer on top, to give some warmth and structure to the look. I finally paired the pieces with my Topshop Black Gabbi Heels and my Cambridge Satchel Red Push Lock Bag. I felt adding the red to my outfit just gave it a bit of a colour pop which it was lacking with the muted black and white tones and water colour shades of the flowers. It’s definitely more of a classic look, but one that I think works for anytime of the day with the floral patterns on the shirt. I would love to know what you fashion bloggers and readers think of it? Comment and let me know!

    Oh, I’d not heard that there’s better weather on the way. I hope some of it comes to my part of the country. πŸ™‚

    Lovely outfit and another great location too.

    I’m probably reading stuff into your photos that’s not intentionally there but your snowy white blazer could represent the last gasps of winter and your floral top could represents the beginning of spring with the first flowers breaking through the snow. πŸ™‚

      Ha ha, it could if you think about it that way! Maybe that might be why I subconsciously chose it! What’s your part of the country?

        I’m in Lincoln. I’ve lived in Lincolnshire since 1998 and lived in the city of Lincoln itself since 2000. It’s nice… All the facilities of a city and it’s surrounded by countryside so it’s the best of both worlds. πŸ™‚

          Oh that is the best of both worlds for sure! πŸ™‚

    You look lovely Lorna. I love the colouring of your top which subtly compliments the light and dark of your blazer and skinnies. Your red bag then adds brightness and fun.

    Glad to hear you’ve got nice weather coming. Up here, looks like wind and rain. Still, weekend is the weekend! πŸ™‚ xx

    Beautiful top, Ted Baker designs are so much fun and full of colour!

    • March 6, 2015 / 1:00 am

      Thank you! Yeah, that’s what I love them for! They have some great prints!

        There is a Ted Baker store I always stop in at when I go shopping in the States. I always see so much gorgeous stuff but for some reason I never seem to grab anything. Perhaps it is because it is the first stop on my shopping trip. I think next time I need to come out with a bag full of something. Seriously beautiful designs.

        • March 6, 2015 / 2:20 am

          The reason for me why I don’t own many is because it’s quite expensive, so I’m only tempted to buy their stuff on sale or with a discount code, ha ha!

          • March 6, 2015 / 2:45 am

            Yeah i totally agree, i think that is what stops me too!

            • March 6, 2015 / 11:28 am

              Yeah, hopefully they have some great sale pieces!
