A Neutral Monochrome Outfit Outside Dior In London
Who’s excited for Valentine’s Day? I can’t believe how quickly it’s come round actually, but I’d love to know how you’re spending it! I have a Valentine’s Day post coming up on the 14th, on the actual day, where I will explain what Adam and I are doing, and you can see my subtle, yet appropriately romantic outfit which I’ve saved up for the occasion. I was inspired to talk about Valentine’s Day though purely because of these photos, for some reason when I look at them, I get a romantic nostalgia that comes to mind. I don’t know if it’s because of the pretty Dior boutique in the background with the orange glow from the lights, or the little pink decorations in the window, or the fact that I look back on these photos with fond memories which automatically makes me feel romantic. I can’t put my finger on it, so I’m just going to say it’s a mix of all three of those things!
Now I mentioned in my previous post a few days ago (the Senreve Aria belt bag outfit) that I had worn these jeans to London, and this is what I wore for that trip for shopping and travel. So the pieces here are my Topshop Grey Long Belted Coat (which you saw here, but this Mango version is super similar) and I layered it over my favourite Zara White Fluffy Jumper, which I also live in. The jeans as I mentioned are the L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite, and as I said, I live in them. I literally wore them all around London for two days straight and they’re so comfortable and haven’t stretched out one bit, which is amazing because I hate it when that happens.
For my shoes, I needed comfort as well since walking was involved which is why I wore trainers/sneakers. Remember my Fila Disruptor II review that I did? These are the Fila featured in an outfit. Again, I live in these too and wear them constantly as they’re so easy to wear, but stylish at the same time. I then finished everything off with my Celine Micro Belt Bag in Clay, to blend all the neutrals together. I really like the combination of taupes, greys, whites and blacks together as there’s something settling about it on the eye, it feels soft and gentle, which is what I was going for, plus it works perfectly against the backdrop of New Bond Street which is so clean and beige too – I love it!
For those of you wondering why I chose Dior for the location instead of the other boutiques, it’s mostly because it’s beautiful and has such a stunning exterior, but also because the next bag on my wish list is the Saddle Bag, which I’m hoping I might be able to get this year (not looking likely though) as I’ve fallen head over heels for it after checking it out more in person. If you would like to see the rest of the photos from London though, you can check out my January Update blog post which features most of them there, as well as the London highlight on my Instagram (click here). Anyway, I’m going to keep this one shorter, so let me know in the comments below what you think of the outfit and location! Lorna xx.
