Sequin Bodysuit With Vintage Jeans In The Snow
First off, I wanted to say sorry for the mini hiatus, things got on top of me for a while and I couldn’t keep up with the schedule – it’s just been so busy! I have definitely been enjoying the snow though! I hear that it was only the south that got it here in the UK and the midlands/up north didn’t get anything, which surprised me as that never happens! We started getting the snow on Thursday, late afternoon, which was good because Adam and I had planned a day of shoots on the Thursday to get a lot of work done for him, and we timed it just right! Come Thursday night, it was getting pretty deep and blizzarding until Friday afternoon. For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) you will have seen all of the snow stories I put up, and how amazing it’s been! I usually worry about the snow as it disrupts a lot of things, but this weekend turned out to be perfect, planning ahead, and no train cancellations or delays for the Sunday.
I’ve also found that it brings out the best in people, especially when it comes to random acts of kindness. Our neighbours were kind enough to shovel our pathway and grit it, without us even knowing, then others were kind enough to shovel the road for everyone that lives here. Then the local man who uses a wheelchair always goes out with his dog on his errands and my mum and I saw him stopped by the pavement, as we approached, a guy got out of his car and gave the man his gloves because his hands were cold and he couldn’t push his wheels on the wheelchair very well. I thought this was lovely. I also heard the story about an anonymous person who paid for 70 homeless people to have accommodation in a hotel for a week, to keep them out of the cold. Altruism is a wonderful thing, so to any of you out there who are in a deep freeze at the moment, don’t forget to do what you can for others in need and please do remember to put food out for the wild animals. Bird seed is always helpful if you place it under things that don’t have snow on them, as they can’t find their food when the snow is covering the entire ground. Just some little tips to make the world a better place!
Anyway, with that out of the way, I wanted to share with you the first of my snow photos! We shot about 5 different looks over the course of two days and I love them! This is my absolute favourite of them all though, which is why I’m sharing it first! I was wearing my new GRLFRND Karonlina High Rise Jeans in Last Dance which I styled with this Lovers + Friends Ever Bodysuit in Gunmetal, which I actually didn’t realise was a bodysuit at first! I took the jeans in a size 28, but they are tight as they’re 100% cotton, so can be quite restrictive! The bodysuit I took in a size small and it fits well.
To finish it off, I wore my ASOS Leather Western Belt which I bought a couple of weeks ago for an amazing price, and I absolutely love the Western inspiration! It was about time I have a silver buckle as well! I then opted for my Pretty Little Thing Grey Oversized Knitted Cardigan to complete the cooler tones, perfectly fitting for the snow. Now you might have noticed there are no full length photos here, so what shoes was I wearing? I had planned to wear the RAYE Congo Boots in White with this look for some time, however due to the 4 inch stiletto heel, I couldn’t wear them on the icy snow in case I fell (it just wasn’t a sensible idea and that’s coming from me, who’s out in the snow in barely any clothes, ha ha!). I took separate shots of the boots for you though, so you can see them! I think they’re gorgeous, white boots are so on trend and I can’t wait to show you them properly.
Those of you who know me will know that I rarely ever wear rigid jeans now, I literally live in and love super stretch as they’re so comfortable, so it was quite a difference going back to what I used to wear all the time. I used to love 100% cotton jeans, not just for the washes and vintage look, but because it was mostly all that was available, but since denim has evolved so much, I’m going back to my roots a little bit with my denim. I’m really feeling vintage style jeans as I think they add so much character to a bland pair of jeans. I love that you can dress them up just as much as you can a smarter pair of black skinnies though, which is why I adore this combination. I hope you like it too though, so obviously I would love your opinion on this outfit!
