Another Case Of The Burgundy Velvet

Lovers + Friends Burgundy Bomber Jacket With Velvet

It’s definitely no secret that I love velvet, especially in burgundy (hence the name of this title) so it’s always going to crop up now and again in my outfits. I know it’s more of an Autumnal fabric and colour, but I don’t see any seasonal approach to burgundy velvet at all as I wear it all year round. So for this outfit, I went with something extremely comfortable, casual and easy wearing for a day out in town.

I chose this Lovers + Friends The Nomad Bomber Jacket to pair with a black tank top, and my James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans. For the accessories, I opted for my Chanel Small Boy Bag in Velvet Bordeaux and my old Yosi Samra Velvet Loafers. I actually bought these shoes about 5 years ago from The Outnet in a sale and I hadn’t worn them all that much, until now, and it turns out that I love them even more than I did at the time. I love the lightweight satin feel of this bomber jacket though and how the colour is so intense – it’s stunning.

With regards to the jeans though, the reason I have linked up the maternity pair is because that’s what I am wearing. I want to make it clear that I am NOT pregnant, before anyone congratulates me, but I have to sometimes wear them because of the swelling and inflammation in my stomach that happens. My normal jeans don’t button up and can be extremely uncomfortable, so the stretchy waistband is such a relief. I’m still working on finding out what’s wrong with my stomach and why it randomly does it (I’m waiting on food intolerance testing results now), but hopefully it’s better. So, happy Friday! I hope you’re all well. Please do let me know what you think of the outfit in the comments below.

    Good luck with your stomach – I have done battle with mine for years. I hope you find the solution soon, Mine turned out to be anything with insoluble fibre or anything that has been matured.

      Thank you for the well wishes, I appreciate that. That’s really interesting, which testing did you have done?

    I find it really interesting that an outfit made from, largely, dark colours has such a cheerful glow to it. πŸ˜€ It’s a lovely look. The jacket is so shiny! I like the shoes best though. πŸ™‚ I’m pleased for you that you’ve rediscovered these hidden gems. I would never have guessed you’d had them so long – they look perfectly new. πŸ˜€

    I hope that your test results give you all, or at least some, of the answers that you are seeking. πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Steven πŸ˜€ It is good isn’t it? I think it’s because of the materials, they give so much depth and a sheen to all the burgundy shades, and the light plays off them nicely, so it’s not too dark at all πŸ˜€

    How perfect do all the burgundy pieces look. I am in love with this look Lorna. And I was about to start getting excited when I read the maternity jeans, lol. This bag right here, I adore it!

      Lol, yeah that’s why I wanted to make it clear it wasn’t for that reason! Thank you, Idu! Glad you love it!

    Oh gosh, I’m sorry to hear about your stomach. I hope you find out what’s going on soon. And the pants look awesome! I had worn a dress that also doubled as a maternity dress a little while ago, and then everyone started thinking I was pregnant. Should have put a disclaimer on there like this! Haha. I love the burgundy color in here too! We’re going into fall so I am all about burgundy right now. πŸ™‚

    You look beautiful as always Lorna! I adore your outfit and all the burgundy pieces which complement each other perfectly. The bomber jacket is stunning, and I always love your Chanel Small Boy Bag whenever you wear it. Burgundy is very becoming on you, and these images are stunning.

    Lots of love Saba xx
