The Shortalls And The Baseball Cap

I wont lie, this weekend has been a tough one. Combining the excruciating heat with my body practically giving up on me for a few days has been a challenge. One of which I’ve struggled to be ok with. Friday was particularly bad as I was having faint and light headed episodes, a fast heart rate, palpitations, dizziness, nausea, sweating… It was awful and I was trying to persevere with everything and carry on as there was so much work to do, but it was tough.

After feeling that way for numerous hours, my body just shut down. I had no energy at all, felt like my plug was pulled out, and I was aching all over for no reason. I wasn’t sick with a virus or anything like that, plus I hadn’t eaten any foods that would trigger it, so again, it’s always a mystery to me as to why I end up with these symptoms and problems for no reason. At this current moment, I’ve been trying to write this blog post all day as it was scheduled for today, but it’s been hard as my mind has been blank. So I will just mention the outfit and hope that in a few days things are looking up again.

For my outfit, I was wearing a pair of Zara Linen Shortalls with a Zara Spot Top. I actually bought these two pieces in London about 4 years ago when it was really hot and I needed something breezy, and these are definitely it. I paired them with my Gucci Floral Embroidered Loafers, my Chanel Small Boy Bag in Bordeaux Velvet, my New Era Cap, and my BVLGARI LVCEA Watch. It was absolutely sweating hot, which is why I was wearing this look, which I put together on the spur of the moment. You might also notice on the close up photo of my Chanel bag, there’s a little hover bee who was interested in it! Comment and let me know what you think of my outfit. Lorna xx.

Yep, that’s a little hover bee admiring my bag, ha ha.

What I Was Wearing:
Linen Shortalls – Zara
T-Shirt – Zara (similar)
Shoes – Gucci
Hat – New Era
Bag – Chanel (similar)

    I never get tired of those Gucci shoes. I am, however, amused at the sight of a proper Brit with a Yankees cap. πŸ™‚

      Ha ha! I know! I wont lie, I really love these caps and the burgundy colour! I can’t say that I am a huge sports follower though πŸ™‚

    Lorna I’m sorry to hear that you were feeling so unwell, light-headed and suffering from total exhaustion. Even though blogging is such an important part of your life, it’s important to pay attention when your body is telling you it needs a break. Your health should always come first, so don’t worry if you need to take time out when things are tough. As for the outfit, you look incredible as always. I love the baseball cap and casual feel of this outfit, which is really refreshing. I always love the Chanel bag whenever you wear it, and it’s lovely to see it styled with a more relaxed ensemble here. I hope you feel better soon.

    Lots of love Saba xx

      Hi Saba,

      Thank you! So nice to read your lovely, positive comments! I am looking at taking a break and a weak off, but I have to plan it right since it’s my only job and what I rely on for my money, it’s a little difficult sometimes. I’ve got a lot of work in mid collaboration mode too with deadlines, so I’m not able to just up and leave for a week at the moment. But I am hoping to in October!

      • August 30, 2017 / 7:20 pm

        You’re so welcome Lorna. It’s always an absolute pleasure to visit your blog. Oh that’s understandable about your blogging commitments, as you’re not a ‘hobby’ blogger like many of us. But it’s great that you’re looking into taking a week off in October. Hopefully this will allow you to prioritise your health and recharge your batteries. xx

        • August 30, 2017 / 10:16 pm

          I truly hope so! I’m really looking forward to being able to do it! Thank you, Saba!

    It’s always good to see some splashes of purple. πŸ™‚ It’s a pity that more people don’t think of purple as a summer colour as it certainly looks great complimenting the black and white here. I also really like the big bold spots on your top. I would never have guessed for myself that this was a spur of the moment outfit at all. πŸ™‚

    • August 29, 2017 / 11:41 pm

      Thank you so much, Steven πŸ™‚ Yeah I think purple is a fantastic colour! Especially for summer. I know a lot tend to drift towards lilac more, but I think deeper purples are pretty too πŸ™‚
