Currently Craving Wish List: November 2019

It’s crazy to think that this is going to be the last wish list of the year 2019 now! My next one will be a Christmas gift guide and then we will be in January! Is anyone else finding that this year is creeping up on them? It’s all coming around so fast! I have my advent calendar though to start opening on Sunday! On my wish list this month are a lot of items that I am obsessing over right now! The Gianvito Rossi gold boots above, I have wanted those since I saw them in London and they just went in the sale on FarFetch, so I got them for a really good price! 40% off! I also finally picked up the Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots, which I know you know I have wanted for months! This time of year and sale prices are incredible! They were 30% off with an extra 30% off that. How could I say no?! Anyway, getting to the rest of the items, there’s a really pretty purple maxi skirt, which would be beautiful for parties at this time of year. Next is the AGOLDE jeans which I just picked up today in the Shopbop sale! I hope they fit! Then there’s a pair of L’AGENCE Coated Leggings and some Tuxedo pants, which I have put on my list of wanted pieces. I’ve also included a pretty glitter cami top from Mango, as well as a coat from them in a pretty stone shade. Staud Frida have a beautiful perspex bag too, which I thought would be ideal for the festive season, and…

Dusky Rose Pink Duster Coat Outfit

The Allsaints Dusky Pink Duster Coat Outfit If you saw my London roundup on our trip to Mayfair, you will have spotted this outfit already, but not in full length. It’s actually one of my favourites for a put together, styled ensemble that’s perfect for Autumn or Spring, as it’s not too cold or too hot. It’s so comfortable too, which was ideal for all of the walking and shopping we were doing! This duster coat has quickly become a piece that I reach for often as well, despite when I initially tried it on, I wasn’t going to keep it as I thought it wouldn’t get too much wear, but I was wrong, so I’m glad I retried it on for the second time, ha ha. So the Dusky Pink Duster Coat that I am wearing is by Allsaints, and I picked it up in the sale a couple of months ago. It’s such a beautiful coat and it’s made of Lyocell, so it’s really comfortable! I layered it over my simple white t-shirt, paired with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Slate, and then finished off with my Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneakers in Gunmetal, and my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour in Grey. I do really enjoy mixing monochrome/neutral pieces with one shade, especially if that shade is a dusky rose like this. I’d love to know what you think of this outfit? Do you love it as much as I do? Lorna xx. P.S. – I’m up for an award for best UK fashion blogger of the year, at the Influencer Awards in London tomorrow. I…

A Weekend In Bristol

Just over a week ago, Adam and I headed to Bristol to do a weekend of photoshoots for Autumn, and we stayed in a hotel. We picked the Mercure Holland House Bristol in Redcliffe and it was actually really nice! We managed to get a lot of work done, multiple outfits, which I can’t wait to share with you, so it was incredibly productive! I thought I would do a round up of our stay in Bristol though in this blog post so that you can see what we got up to, a preview of a couple of outfits, and some general scenery photography. If you’re wondering about my outfit above, I might not be doing a blog post on it as I didn’t take enough photos as it was kind of spur of the moment, but I was wearing my new Commando Patent Burgundy Leggings (see here), with a Zara knitted jumper, my Brixton hat, my Topshop Snake Boots and an ASOS Snake Bag to match. It’s not something I would usually wear, but I loved how it looked when I put it together! What do you think of this outfit above? You can also see an outfit I wore on the first day when we got there, the knitted maxi skirt, as I shared it last week! We had a suite, which you can see in the photos, and it had a lounge area, a huge bed, a beautiful bathroom, and was actually really quiet with a beautiful view of the church and looking out over Bristol. We spent most of our time in the hotel in the…

The Knitted Maxi Skirt Outfit

A Knitted Maxi Skirt With Snake Boots I didn’t mean to take a full week off again, but life has been crazy the last week! I was in Bristol from Thursday to Sunday for a lot of Autumn shoots with Adam, then on Monday I was invited to the Last Christmas UK premiere in London, and a VIP Christmas lights switch on with Emma Thompson and Emilia Clarke on Tuesday. I got back super late on Tuesday night, rested a lot on Wednesday and caught up with a few things, and now today I’m back doing work. I plan on doing an update post on all of it with photos very soon, but for those of you who are interested, you can check out my highlight on Instagram (click here) to see all the videos! This outfit is a look I wore to Bristol and we shot these photos in Queen Square, which is a really beautiful park area with lots of pretty buildings all around. It was pretty chilly, but not cold enough that I couldn’t wear a skirt and I had been wanting to wear my new The Mia Midi Skirt by L’Academie, which was gifted by Revolve Clothing, as it’s such a beautiful stretch knit, with a thicker material, so it’s perfect for the cooler weather, despite the split up the side. I wanted to make this outfit perfect for Autumn, which is why I styled the skirt with my Zara Knit in Cream, then finished it off with my Topshop Snake Print Boots and my brand new Celine Nano Luggage in Glazed Nut that I got…

Allsaints Elva Leather Jacket Review

Allsaints Elva Leather Jacket Review I thought I would turn this blog post into a review actually because I got this brand new Allsaints Elva Leather Jacket and am totally obsessed with it. This is the first time I wore it in these photos and I paired it with a Topshop Knit, my L’AGENCE Margot Jeans in Slate, and my Golden Goose Sneakers. It’s a very casual outfit and I love how easy to wear it is, but because of the fit of everything, it’s very put together and styled at the same time. Anyway, I hope you like this outfit, do let me know! And tell me what you think of this jacket too! Lorna xx. The Design: The design of the Elva is actually my new favourite from Allsaints. It’s a hybrid between their two best sellers, the Dalby (which is my other favourite, see my review here) and their Balfern (see my review here). As you can see from the photos, it’s so perfect! The zip detailing on the sleeves, and the two side pockets, make it a no fuss detail leather jacket, with black rivets, and I’m obsessed with that. It fits like a dream too. The cut as you can see is a little longer, so it hits just below the top of the hip bones, which I love, and it flares out a bit with more of a straight cut. I think this makes it really edgy and more rock inspired, and that’s why it has quickly become my new favourite! The Sizing: I would say the Elva runs true to size, if not…

A Country Girl Halloween

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hadn’t given any of you a preview of my Halloween costume this year (see my previous costumes here), and I was really excited because I absolutely adore country and Western, so doing a cowgirl seemed extremely fitting! I was even more excited that Adam got involved this year and joined me as a cowboy, which you can see below! The best part about this costume was that I put it together out of pieces I already had in my closet! I was wearing my Vintage Levi’s 501 Cut Off Denim Shorts, paired with my Gucci GG Belt (fashionable cowgirl, ha ha) and worn with my Topshop Snake Print Boots. For the shirt, I got this Superdry Bailey Shirt in Yellow, and finished it off with my Brixton Hat and some freckles! Adam’s required a little more props as he got a holster and a toy gun, as well as a bandana! We shot these photos in the little village nearby as there’s a perfect gate and scenery for this type of outfit. A few passers by came over to see what was going on and asked what it was for, even said we needed a horse, ha ha. I really enjoyed this shoot though, and I get excited every year for Halloween costume time! I would happily wear this outfit on a regular day though if the shorts were a little longer! That’s how much I love the Western vibe! What do you think? What’s your costume? Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

A Shopping Break In Mayfair, London

So as you know, Adam and I swapped out our St. Ives holiday this year (twice due to bad weather) and went to London for a mini city break instead. We stayed in The Washington Mayfair hotel, purely for the location and the cheaper price compared to other hotels, and it was nice. Despite having a room next to the main road, making it noisy, it was a nice room and hotel in general. It was only a 7-10 minute walk from Mount Street and New Bond Street, which was exactly what we wanted as we love looking in all of the designer boutiques. We hit up Saint Laurent, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Celine, and more, enjoying all the new collections, and we also headed to Selfridges on the second day. So this is a little mini update and travel post, including all of my photos from London and new purchases! I of course couldn’t come home empty handed, could I? Ha ha. Beautiful views in Mayfair, this is on Mount Street where my favourite Celine boutique is! The Anthracite Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots that I fell in love with and am trying to save for! Two photos from inside Burberry on New Bond Street. It’s a much smaller boutique compared to the flagship on Regent Street, but that’s why I love it! I love the new decor inside. This is the scarf that Adam and I bought to share. It’s the oversized cashmere check in Mid Camel and it’s stunning! We were looking for a new scarf and after trying on lots of colours, we finally decided on this…

Pink Blossom For An Evening Out

As these photos were shot back in May or June, I had on a very Summery outfit, which consisted of this Pretty Little Thing Blossom Top and one of their Pale Pink Corduroy Mini Skirts. I finished it off with some Topshop Blush Pink Ankle Boots, and some dainty jewellery. I think this outfit is not only perfect for the warmer weather, but it would be great for an evening out too as it’s pretty feminine and cute! I wasn’t planning on doing this blog post (like my other one with the red co-ord) as a get the outfit type of post because all of these pieces are sold out, and I mostly just enjoy sharing my looks with you. That’s why I’m going to keep this one very short, ask if you love the outfit, and say that I’m really looking forward to shooting my Halloween photos this weekend! Lorna xx.
