A Brown Balenciaga Mini City Bag Outfit

A Tan Coat Outfit With A Balenciaga Mini City Bag

Adam and I shot these photos a few weeks ago when it was absolutely freezing and had just started to snow. That’s why you can see little white flakes on my coat and hat, it’s not dandruff, ha ha. I will confess that I actually had a massive scarf, and some gloves, but I didn’t use them for the photo as they took the attention off of everything due to the overwhelming size, so I suffered the cold for a while instead.

I chose to wear my old Tan Topshop Coat over my newer ALLSAINTS Alpha Roll Neck Jumper in Cream. You may remember I have it in Alpaca Brown too (see here) so I ended up getting this colour too. It’s actually one of the only ALLSAINTS knitted tops I can wear since the wool doesn’t irritate me at all, it’s a miracle! I styled this with my Hudson Barbara Jeans, which I tucked into my Sam Edelman Blake Booties. I’ve worn these boots so many times and they are just unbelievably comfortable. I always struggle to find heeled boots that don’t hurt my feet and I can happily walk around town for hours in these.

Now getting to my accessories, I chose my Topshop Faux Fur Hat as it’s one of my warmest hats that I own, and now comes the exciting part… My new Balenciaga Mini City Bag in Brown Suede! I’m sure so many of you know that I’ve wanted this bag for the best part of half a year and it’s been featured in my wish lists as well, so I finally managed to save up enough money and buy it! It’s exclusive to My Theresa and I’ve never seen it anywhere else at all, so that’s where I got it from, and it truly couldn’t be more perfect! The brown shade is just stunning, warm, and versatile, plus the straps thicker and comfortable. I own a Balenciaga Mini City in Black which I did a review on years ago, so I didn’t think it would make sense to review this one too, so I’m just showing it to you in my outfit already! I’ve worn the black one so many times, and I plan on wearing this brown one forever too! Isn’t it stunning?

On a somewhat separate note though, it’s been a really long time since I had my hair cut. I think it was back at the end of July when I chopped it short and had myΒ blonde balayage done, so I’m definitely in need of a hair cut again as it’s so unruly and long now. It’s crazy how quick it grows. I’m thinking of getting some side sweeping fringe/bangs put back in like I used to, but still keeping the colour the same, and chopping a bit of the length off. What do you think? Anyway, please do comment and let me know what you think of my outfit! I’d love your opinions.

What I Was Wearing:
Coat – Topshop (similar)
Knitwear – ALLSAINTS
Jeans – Hudson
Boots – Sam Edelman
Bag – Balenciaga
Hat – Topshop

    Lorna, I like the outfit… the hand bag is really cute… I can wearing that with may outfits xox

    Kudos to you for hanging out in the cold getting the pictures… it has become super cold her in Halifax, I knew we couldn’t get away with such a short winter… hopefully soon though. When I have to go out, I move quickly to get to a warm place… I wouldn’t be able to stand around getting pictures taken… haha

    I think getting long fringe bangs would look awesome on you and taking a little length off would freshen the look up… I know what you mean about how fast hair grows… it has been over 6 months for me and I desperately need an update too… I look forward to see what you do… I am sure it will look wonderful xox

      Yeah, I quickly want to go into shops or anywhere out of the cold too, or I don’t want to go out. I can’t stand it when it’s absolutely freezing, it’s impossible! I hope it warms up for you there too. And I’m excited to see what you do with your hair as it’s been 6 months for you too. I’m thinking next month is when I will get it cut, or later this month!

    We really loved these brown accessories.

    I love this outfit Lorna, and you look adorable in your leopard print hat! I can actually see the snowflakes, it must have been freezing! Well done for capturing these images and doing a great job, despite the cold conditions. I adore your new bag, it’s so sophisticated.

    Lots of love Saba xx

      Thank you! Isn’t it gorgeous! I am completely in love with it in every way possible. It’s amazing! And yep, it was freezing. I was hoping the snow would settle on the ground though, but it never does here!

    Very nice indeed! I’m immediately struck by how well the location compliments your outfit. The colours in these photos all work together beautifully. πŸ™‚ Also I think the cold weather is showing and adding to the atmosphere. I think it was well worth you braving it. πŸ™‚ Looks like nobody else in the area was out on that day. πŸ˜‰

    It’s a great outfit. πŸ˜€ The coat and the boots are a great combination and those jeans are such a gorgeous blue and draw the eye right in.

      I think they had more sense than I did, ha ha! There were a few people who hurried by now and again, but it was mostly just us and some cars. I wasn’t sure whether or not the location would be good for this one as it blended in more so than stood out, but you’re right, I liked how it turned out in the end!

    • March 6, 2017 / 9:45 pm

      Thank you so much! Really happy you like the browns, it’s quickly becoming one of my favourite tones.

  6. March 6, 2017 / 12:17 pm

    I am sure it was wonderful weather, I really loved that bag and matching outfits. You are really beautiful πŸ™‚

    Oh that is such a cute bag – what a great purchase! So luxe in the suede too πŸ™‚ I’ve had my eye on a mini city for a while. I ended up getting the Rebecca Minkoff micro regan which I think it similar – and I love it, so once I’ve finished my no shop challenge I’m going to hunt out a cute mini city. I really want a cobalt bag, so maybe I’ll wait until they have a nice blue πŸ™‚

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend πŸ™‚

      Ooooh a cobalt blue Mini City sounds lovely! I don’t think I could cope on the 6 months no shopping ban you’re on, ha ha πŸ™‚

    Well, I wish I had your hair woes, my hair takes forever to grow, tsigh…loving the brown accents in your outfit and the anmial print hat is just too coote ( :

    • March 7, 2017 / 2:11 am

      Thank you so much ( : And regarding your hair, isn’t that because you have awesome afro hair? It’s curly in nature so it looks like it takes longer to grow, but if you pulled it straight it’s actually quite long? Your hair looks great short though!

    Such a pretty color scheme and the bag is so very cute, but for me it would be too small, I could not fit much in there.

    • March 8, 2017 / 9:44 pm

      Thank you! Yeah, I don’t take big bags as I don’t have much to carry with me and bigger bags are too heavy.

  15. March 9, 2017 / 10:24 pm

    Oh the sacrifices and lengths bloggers go to for a good shot! πŸ™‚ And I am definitely one of those people who bows down and appreciates it because I(‘d) do the same. Loved your little comment/explanation about little flakes being snow, not dandruff. Made me laugh πŸ˜€
    LOVE this outfits from head to toe. Literally. Gorgeous Lorna <3

      I’m glad you can relate, ha ha πŸ™‚ I thought I better had put it in there just in case people did think it was dandruff, since there was no snow on the ground, lol πŸ˜€

  16. March 11, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    This outfit is perfect ! I love your coat and your bag is beautiful. Kisses πŸ™‚
