Burgundy Varsity Jacket & Black Heeled Boots

There are two things currently on my wish list at the moment, one of them is the burgundy varsity jacket above and the other is the black buckle boots with metal below, both from Topshop. I’ve always liked the idea of varsity jackets as I think they look really sweet and romantic, but I never thought about owning one as I wasn’t in a sports team, a cheerleader or dating anyone who owned one, ha ha. Recently they have been getting more and more popular though and this one definitely caught my eye! I watched Beverly Hills Cop II on the weekend and completely fell in love with Eddie Murphy’s character Axel’s Detroit Lions varsity jacket in blue and white, it was amazing, but since I’m more of a burgundy girl, I picked this one up in store over the weekend! The boots below caught my eye when I was browsing the new in section on Topshop too. I love the black combined with the metal on them and the fact that the heel is only 3 inches high, so it wont be painful to walk around on for a long while. However, these boots are really expensive for Topshop so I don’t think I will be buying them anytime soon unfortunately! I also do need some new earrings to wear as a staple at some point, I tend to stick to one pair for ages! Do you like either of these items too?

The Red Plaid Shirt With Leggings

(Shirt – Exact, Leggings – Similar, Boots – Exact, Watch – Exact, Bracelets – Similar) Sorry for the delay in posting this look! I had planned on posting is last weekend, but never got around to it. Sometimes I just love the simplicity of a statement shirt with simple leggings and boots and accessories to spruce it up, like this outfit. I’m wearing my Zara Red Plaid Shirt, my Warehouse Black Leggings, my KG by Kurt Geiger Winona Booties, an ASOS Mustache Watch and Bracelets from Topshop and ASOS. Did you all have a nice weekend? I was also wondering, do any of you watch the TV shows Stella or Got To Dance? I’ve always loved Stella and I’m really into Got To Dance at the moment! But anyway, aside from that, what do you think of this outfit?

Galaxy Print Denim Shorts

(Shorts – Exact, Leggings – Similar, Top – Similar, Jacket – Similar, Boots – Exact, Bag – Similar) As you know I absolutely love galaxy print and these shorts are gorgeous! I got sent them from Voodoo Girl to style and I know I will definitely be wearing them more in the summer when it warms up too! I recently found Voodoo Girl on ASOS and I fell in love with the brand, so I am excited to be collaborating with them for this post. They have such unique pieces! I’m wearing my gifted Voodoo Girl Galaxy Shorts, a Topshop Purple Top, a Zara Quilted Faux Leather Jacket, my Warehouse Black leggings, my Forever 21 Neon Pink Quilted Bag and my KG by Kurt Geiger Winona Boots. I decided to keep my look in the purple theme to match the shorts, but I thought black would be a great base colour for the purple shades to go against. I also got this bag for Valentines Day from my boyfriend, but hadn’t yet worn it until now. I don’t know if the camera captures its colour well, but it’s bright neon pink and so pretty! What do you think of the outfit? Do you like the shorts?

Some Fashion Inspirations

One thing I have noticed that I do a lot is save random inspiring photos to my desktop, which usually clutters it up, but it’s worth it as I can get so much inspiration from the photos. What I thought would be a good idea and something that I haven’t done before, is to share some of my favourite pictures with you! I’m always on Pinterest (click here to follow) and Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) pinning and liking photos which have really caught my eye, and these are some of them. Do you do the same thing as me?

Fur Lined Camo Jacket & Hidden Heel Hi Tops

(Jeans – Exact, Jacket – Exact, Bag – Exact, Shoes – Exact, Hand Warmers – Exact) I wore this outfit out on the weekend to go to town with my boyfriend. I’m so over the cold now! I can’t stand it being so freezing all the time, luckily this jacket keeps me really warm as it has faux fur all in the lining. I’m wearing my Bleulab Reversible Jeans, my Camo Fur Topshop Jacket and Tan Hi Tops and my Cambridge Satchel Vintage Brown Satchel. Did you all have a nice weekend? Hopefully you saw my sunglasses giveaway yesterday and have entered! If not, it’s just below this post. I have also included some Instagram snaps from my day out as well so you get a more personal feel to this post! I hope you like it! Do you like the outfit?

Inspired By The Sailors

(Jeans – Similar, Blazer – Similar, Scarf – Exact, Shoes – Similar) I got gifted this beautiful blue and green silk scarf from Louis Jane to style, so I have been thinking up an outfit to really showcase it for a while. I came up with the idea of pairing it with a navy blazer and white skinny jeans as I think the look is simple and clean and the scarf stands out! I’m wearing gifted Hudson Nico White Jeans, a Zara Navy Blazer, my gifted Louis Jane Silk Scarf and my Topshop Nude Metallic Toe Cap Heels. I also like the fact that when I put this whole look together, it really reminded me of a sailors outfit with the navy and white combination. It’s also quite classy at the same time so would be great to wear out somewhere with a dress code. I really like how the combination turned out and I’m a big fan of these lovely white jeans from Hudson. What do you think of the outfit?

Do You Actually Like Fashion Week?

I read this post on IFB (one of my favourite sites for blogging articles) about bloggers readers and if they actually care about Fashion Week. As a blog reader myself (of numerous blogs) I can say that I tend to zone out when some of my favourite style bloggers just post Fashion Week stuff. Usually the readers go to these fashion bloggers to see what they are up to in their personal life, what they have bought and more importantly, their outfits of the day, so going there expecting to see these types of posts and ending up seeing runway shots is disheartening, so I usually don’t leave comments or skip past it. I find that if readers (like myself) want to see runway shots from Fashion Week, we will head to sites like Vogue who have the clear shots and inside scoop on everything in one place. This is just my opinion though, but it got me to thinking (which is the point of this post) do you actually like Fashion Week? I used to write about Fashion Week on my blog, some seasons ago, but it took up so much of my time and it wasn’t something I really enjoyed doing. Going through the shows and saving/uploading/inserting the images was just really boring and so time consuming for me, but I thought that it was the right thing to do because I work in the fashion industry and Fashion Week is the most talked about thing at this time of year, but it never garnered much interest from you guys and I felt like all that hard work…
