Green Tartan & Sapphire Velvet

A Green Tartan Blazer With Skinny Jeans And Velvet Boots

I think the last time that I wore this River Island Plaid Blazer, it was back in the summer of 69… Ha ha, no, I just got sidetracked by the song there. Back in the summer of 2015 (see here) where I styled it with burgundy trousers and snake print heels. I thought it was time that I brought it back out though as I’ve always been a huge fan of the way it fits and the pretty colours. I decided to pair it with a simple white tank top and my new Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Jeans in Fizzle which I absolutely adore. They have a slightly updated fit with a wider leg opening, so I cuffed them, but the wash is really nice!

Now getting to my accessories, how amazing are these boots? They are the Kurt Geiger Carvela Gorki Sapphire Blue Velvet Boots which I got for over 70% off! You all know how much I adore velvet and I’d wanted a pair of navy blue velvet boots for ages, so when I saw these, I knew I had to have them. You wouldn’t believe how comfortable they are either, the heel isn’t too high and they don’t hurt my feet either. You’re definitely going to be seeing these more often! Then finally I added in my Valentino Mini Lock Bag in Light Ivory to glam it up a little bit. This is the first outfit that I have worn it with since I reviewed it, and I’m happy to report that the strong smell it had is fading now, thankfully.

I’ve got a few exciting blog posts coming up soon as well, which I can’t wait to share with you. My March schedule is completely booked up until the end of the month. There’s going to be a few more experimental outfits as I’m working with Topshop on their campaign soon too, so stay tuned for that, but in the mean time, I would love to know what you think of this outfit here. Are you a fan of the jeans the rest of the pieces? I would love to know!

P.S. I also wanted to give a little update on my digestion. I’ve been taking the probiotic called Symprove for about 17 days now and it’s part of a 12 week programme. It’s the first probiotic which is designed to help people with IBS and it’s NHS funded here in the UK. The taste isn’t great at all and it’s hard to drink down the liquid, but so far I’m actually seeing some improvements in my digestion. I’m going to keep you updated as the weeks go on and then do a blog post at the end of the course to tell you all about it, but if any of you have taken Symprove before, I would love to know how it went for you!

What I Was Wearing:
Blazer – River Island (similar)
Top – ASOS
Jeans – Citizens of Humanity
Bag – Valentino
Boots – Carvela Kurt Geiger

    Wow Lorna, what a surprisingly beautiful outfit. I love the tartan blazer, wish I had one too.The outfit is so perfect with the sexy jeans and boots.

      Thank you so much!

    I’m very impressed by these boots. πŸ™‚ That’s such a deep and rich blue – but also rather shiny too in the light. πŸ˜€

    It’s great to see some more green edging into your outfits too. I remember that jacket from before but you’ve surprised me that it was so long ago! :O Anyway, I think it works really well with the jeans. Great combination. πŸ˜€

    • March 10, 2017 / 9:42 pm

      I know, I was shocked how long ago it was, I thought it was last year that I wore it, but nope, almost 2 years ago! Time flies by :O Glad you like it though πŸ™‚

    I love jeans on you Lorna… I think once I get my weight down again, I will wear them… you look great xox

    I am sorry that the drink you have to take, doesn’t taste good… I have an issue with things like that, if I don’t like the flavor, I just can’t drink it no matter what… it needs to taste at least a little good… I do hope it works for you xox

    • March 12, 2017 / 5:36 pm

      Thank you, Launna! Oh I’m sorry you can’t wear jeans, have you tried the super stretchy ones? They’re so comfy!

    Hi Lorna! This outfit looks incredible on you and the tartan blazer is stunning! I love the way you styled it in your previous outfit as well, which was equally stylish and looked amazing. Both the looks are very chic and showcase the blazer perfectly. The sapphire blue velvet boots are absolutely beautiful and very you.

    I’m glad to hear you’ve had some improvement with your digestive problems as a result of taking Symprove. I hope things continue to improve and your digestion problems become a thing of the past. It’s great that you’re planning to write a review of this treatment.

    I hope you’re having a fab weekend so far. I was so thrilled to hear you have a collaboration with Topshop coming up. That’s a massive accomplishment Lorna! I can’t wait to see your upcoming blog posts!

    Lots of love Saba xx

    I know many thinks probiotic is a bunch of garbage that the medical companies came up with to make us buy more stuff but I really believe it works. good for you that you are seeing improvement!

      It definitely works, especially for people who lack certain enzymes and bacteria, it’s so helpful!

  13. March 11, 2017 / 8:51 pm

    You’re right, the wash of the jeans is great. It’s perfect how they’re not too light or dark, and go really well with the blazer. They wear & tears give the jeans a lot of character as well!

    • March 12, 2017 / 5:39 pm

      Thanks, Tommy! So glad you like them!

  14. March 12, 2017 / 2:05 am

    For 70% off that’s such a steal! Amazing boots, I need them in my life. I love your bag and whole look Lorna. Glad you see improvements with your digestion. I guess you’ll overlook the taste since it’s effective. Have a great new week girl.

    • March 13, 2017 / 10:59 am

      Thank you so much, Idu! You have a great week too!

  17. March 13, 2017 / 8:05 am

    Ok, I need a jacket like that. The color is too cute, and I see mysrlf getting a lot of wear out if it. I’m glad the medication is working. Have a great week!

    Such a cute and classic look – perfect for the cooler weather too! The pairing of pearl earrings is a perfect way to finish off this polished look.

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
