A Mansur Gavriel, Skinny Jeans & Gucci Loafers Outfit
Firstly, I wanted to start out by saying thank you to everyone who checked if I was ok after what happened last night in London, I am, and I want to send out my love and thoughts to any of my readers in London that are going through such a tough time right now. It always devastates and shocks me (see my post here) how things like this can happen in such a civilised world. It’s barbaric. I truly hope all of you are ok, and that you’re safe, but more importantly that you can escape the negativity by coming here and enjoying my blog like normal, with a brand new outfit post for you all.
Adam and I shot these photos a couple of weeks ago when the weather had started warming up. It was really nice to be able to wear a tank top without the jacket and not be freezing cold! Then of course it turned out to boil as the days went on and I couldn’t cope with the intense heat. But, as it turns out since I put this outfit together on the day by just picking pieces I wanted to wear, again, it’s one I really like and love. I find the brown palette is very easy wearing for me and it suits my skin tone and hair colour nicely, so it’s one I often tend to venture towards. So, what was I wearing?
I was wearing my older ALLSAINTS Balfern Leather Jacket in Sahara which I layered over my REISS Fi Silk Top in Gold. These are two of my favourite pieces, one older and one newer, but I love the combination of them together as the silky fabric just brings more polish to a leather jacket. I paired them with my Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Jeans in Distressed Fizzle (which you saw here too) and put my beloved Gucci GG Belt in Brown around the middle for an added extra. I am sure you have noticed that I can never get enough of this belt now!
Then for the rest of the accessories, I wore my Gucci Princetown Loafers in Brown (yep, they are new) and my Daniel Wellington Classic Petite St. Mawes Watch. As you know I got the Gucci Princetown Floral Embroidered Loafers before, and I completely fell in love with those so much for their comfort and appeal that I got the brown as well, which are even more versatile. I can’t rate them enough! As I thought all the complementary brown tones and warm hues went really well together, which is why I chose my new Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag too to round it off.
I’ve always loved Mansur Gavriel for quite a few years actually and never really thought about owning one of their bags, but Matches gave me a £100 off coupon and I couldn’t resist. I got the Mini version in Brown Suede and it’s SO amazing! It’s completely light weight so you don’t feel it and it packs away completely flat too, so it doesn’t take up any space. I love this one as my comfortable, casual bag and you are definitely going to be seeing it a lot more. I’m finally happy to have a nice bucket bag! I wasn’t sure on the size to pick at first as I thought the even smaller one would have been more suited, but this one was perfect. Do let me know if you would like me to do a review on it!
I did want to point out that I noticed a change in my face here compared to my other photos, and I don’t think it was just the different lighting, but I felt like I looked quite pale and tired, which is actually very reminiscent of how I’ve been feeling mentally and physically lately with everything that’s been going on in my stomach. It’s been quite a tough time and I didn’t realise that it was also starting to show in my appearance as well, but I am hoping that will all change in time and things will get better. Anyway, let me know what you think of this outfit and all the pieces that I am wearing. I always love your opinions. Lorna xx.
