The Zara Shearling Biker Jacket With Thigh High Boots
Happy 2018 everyone! I can’t believe it’s the 3rd of January already and it was only Christmas yesterday. It’s crazy! I first want to start out by saying that I hope everyone is safe after all these horrible storms we’re having in the UK. I know a lot of you are without power and have been flooded, so my thoughts are with you all, as they are with those homeless at this time of year. I know you all take time out of your day to read my fashion and lifestyle blog on a regular basis, so just know I’m appreciative of that. I was quite shocked when my views almost doubled on Christmas day, so I’m honoured to know you took your holiday time and caught up on Raindrops of Sapphire. Without you, I wouldn’t have just hit 4 million views, which is outstanding. I never like to come across as bragging or showing off about this kind of stuff, so I rarely mention it, but I wanted to start 2018 off with giving thanks to you all for making this possible! It’s humbling.
Anyway, getting to my outfit, and sticking to my new years resolution of re-wearing my pieces and trying not to buy new, I think I’ve managed it! You might remember this Zara Faux Shearling Biker Jacket from a previous post in November and I’m styling it again! This time instead of going with grey skinny jeans and snake print boots, I’ve opted to wear it with my MOTHER Skinny Jeans, tucked into my Ted & Muffy Empress Thigh High Boots, finished off with my Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag and a Topshop scarf. All of these items I have worn before, especially the boots and scarf as I’m getting so much use out of it! It’s very Burberry-esque, but without the price tag or cashmere. I did also have on my Urban Outfitters Gloves here as it was literally freezing. When Adam and I shot these photos it was 0 Celsius outside so it wasn’t comfortable! Then in some shots you can see my GAP Velveteen Roll Neck Top (plus a billion layers underneath).
As you know from my previous post about this Zara coat, it’s quickly become one of my favourites. It’s a size XS and I’ve seen numerous people with it, even guys as Adam wore one and another male fashion blogger, as well as a girl I spotted on the train a couple of weeks ago. It’s a fantastic coat and I recommend it! As it’s so neutral, it goes with everything and is incredibly flattering too. You’re definitely going to be seeing it worn more than just twice, that’s for sure! I know my Chanel bag is quite expensive as well, so I’ve added in cheaper alternatives. Zac Posen does some very similar Earthette bags (I have one) and they are fantastic! Plus, I’ve been thinking about a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots for years! I know I have these Ted & Muffy ones, but a brown pair of SW’s have been a dream for a long time, so maybe I might end up using one of my allowed 3 purchases for 2018 on a pair of those! What do you think?
Now you may notice that there’s a poll just below and that’s because I want your opinion on this outfit and whether or not you prefer it with or without the scarf? I had the scarf as it was freezing and I liked the added element it gave to the overall look, making me look taller, but you couldn’t see my bag when I wore it, so I took photos of this look with and without the scarf. I liked both so chose to include them both and get your opinion on it instead! As always, please do let me know what you think of my outfit in the comments below! Lorna xx.
