Keeping It Casual

Burgundy Faux Leather Jacket With New Balance 410

I’m finally getting around to sharing these photos with you from shooting them back in October or November. There was always something else cropping up instead and it meant these got pushed to the side, but a new year means a new start and I wanted to get this older set published. I’m really quite exhausted and drained today, so I’m not able to type much unfortunately, so I’m going to have to keep this one short.

I was wearing my GUESS faux leather burgundy jacket (similar) which I layered over a grey ASOS t-shirt. I paired these pieces with my Citizens of Humanity Rocket jeans in Axel and then finished it off with my burgundy New Balance 410 trainers/sneakers and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Love cross body bag. I love the combination of burgundy, black and grey as I’m sure you’re all aware of by now and sometimes I really need comfort, so I tend to opt for my New Balance quite a lot. I love these because they are nice and slim for a sports shoe, which is flattering to my legs. Do any of you fashion bloggers often wear sports shoes? I’d love to know what you think of my outfit too!

    Sorry to read that you’re not feeling so good today, Lorna. I hope you have a better day tomorrow. πŸ™‚

    I love that penultimate hair swirling photo of you on your toes! πŸ˜€ That is such a fantastic shot and so different. πŸ™‚

    I agree with you that these three colours make for a great combination. The outfit has a lovely overall shape to it too and suits your figure perfectly. Love the jacket, love the jeans, love the t-shirt. It’s a great look and a fantastic start to 2016. πŸ™‚

    I also like the shoes very much. I tend prefer the look of flat shoes on women anyhow. I almost hesitate to make comments like that in case it suggests that you look anything less that marvellous in heels. You look great in all of your shoes – I just personally have a slight preference for the flat shoe look. πŸ™‚

    I have, of course enthusiastically, cast my vote for you. I wish you the very best of luck! πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much, Steven πŸ™‚ That’s really kind of you! So strange you prefer flats on women actually, I’ve never met a guy who did as they always prefer heels since they elongate the legs and make the butt stick out, lol! You’re a rare breed! πŸ™‚

        Well I knew I was probably holding a minority view (even on such a very slight preference) but I hadn’t ever imagined the minority to be quite as small as just me all alone. LOL πŸ˜‰ Interesting though. πŸ™‚

    I love this unexpectedly casual outfit on you Lorna! It’s the perfect look for being out and about and running errands, without compromising either style or comfort. I also wear sports shoes on a regular basis, as I’m very active and walk long distances every day, so high heels aren’t a realistic option.

    I’m sorry to hear you were feeling drained. I hope you’re feeling much better now, and having a great weekend so far.

    I placed my vote for your blog, and it was a pleasure to do so. I hope you win, as you truly deserve it.

    Best wishes,

    Saba x

      Thank you for your well wishes, unfortunately mine isn’t just one or two days, it’s a permanent thing, but I’m managing it.
