The Brown Satin Flared Trousers Outfit

Brown Satin Flared Trousers With A Cropped Top Happy Monday everyone! I spent the weekend shooting new content for you all and this is one of the looks that I came up with recently. The trends are fading away from skinny jeans and really tight clothing, and instead everyone is favouring looser fits and wide leg silhouettes. One trend that I have noticed increasing in popularity is wide leg satin trousers. I wasn’t sure on this at first, but the more that I see it, the more I fell in love. It’s classy, it’s elegant, and it’s statement making. I’ve been seeing wide leg satin trousers around on fashion bloggers, celebrities and in editorials – they are taking over the fashion world by storm at the moment. They’re being worn with satin shirts, jackets, cropped tops, and more. Street style trends even incorporate them with sneakers/trainers and that’s a great way to tone them down and wear them as a daytime piece! For my version of the wide leg satin trousers trend, I opted for these gorgeous Pretty Lavish Satin Trousers in a Cocoa Brown that’s really rich and luxurious. These trousers do run a little big, so I took a size small in them and they’re perfect! They have an elasticated waist and are so comfortable. They also come in other colours like olive green, which is so gorgeous! I wanted the satin trousers to be the focal point of the outfit here, so I kept everything else pretty simple, opting for this ASOS Brown Hourglass Top, which balances out the wide legs. I chose my Topshop Snake Print…

My 15 Favourite Outfits I’ve Worn

My 15 Favourite Outfits I’ve Worn I thought I would put together a blog post showcasing 15 of my favourite outfits! I’ve chosen 15 from 2018 until now, as I’ve published so many outfits since founding my blog in 2010 that it’s impossible to go all the way back and narrow that down. I’ve worn some outfits that I loved prior to these dates, but I think the recent ones are more valid when it comes to this blog post. What I’ve come to realise with my personal style is that it does tend to change a lot when I incorporate trends, but one thing I do always stick to is denim, leather jackets, and boots. Those three items are a staple in my outfits and I don’t think that will ever change as it’s a core part of who I am as a person. Personal style is very reflective of your personality and your mood, and as I’ve grown up over the years, I’ve been leaning towards a more refined, neutral colour palette than the bold and bright pieces I would regularly wear in my early twenties. I used to adore so many different styles of jeans! At one point I was obsessed with low rise (we’re talking 6 inches rise) and printed or coloured denim, so my outfits were super bright, but now I tend to only wear light blue or black jeans, only opting for skinny or a classic mom fit. When it comes to my handbags, gone are the days when I would gravitate towards bright pinks and reds, and I favour neutral shades like brown,…

80’s Inspired Puffy Sleeve Dress Outfit

The 80’s Puffy Sleeve Floral Dress Hey everyone! This will be my last blog post that I write from the United States as I’m leaving in a few days to return to the UK. I’ve had such an amazing time here and have really enjoyed the sunshine, the heat, the things to do… I have so much to share with you all in upcoming blog posts! I even visited the prison that was in The Shawshank Redemption, and it was incredible! I’ve been to Cleveland Zoo, and tomorrow I’m going to Cleveland Aquarium… So much to fit in before I leave! For this outfit, I was wearing my Abercrombie & Fitch 80’s Puff Sleeve Dress in Blue Floral, which I paired with their Brown Sandals, my Mulberry Mini Darley in Oak, my Ray-Ban Sunglasses, and my beloved Daisy Jewellery. I got this dress quite a few months ago in February when I was out here in the USA, so it’s unfortunately sold out online and I can’t share a link to it, but it’s one of my favourites! It’s such a statement piece, with fun puffy sleeves, and every time I have worn it, I get a compliment. If you remember my previous blog post where I shared the pink maxi skirt and the bardot top, the photos were taken at Kingwood Nature Center, and so were these. These were actually shot inside the grounds and it’s gorgeous in there! Water fountains, flowers, trees, gazebos… It’s a stunning place. Much like a Botanical Gardens in the UK actually, so I thought it was the perfect backdrop for the outfit. Anyway,…

A Pink Maxi Skirt With A White Bardot Top

A Pink Maxi Skirt With A White Bardot Top How pretty is this location? I’m still in Ohio in the United States and this was the area surrounding Kingwood Center Gardens, which is basically like a large Botanical Gardens that we would find in the UK. It was such a sunny and hot day that I wanted to try and capture the magic of an Ohio summer, and I think I did that with these photos! I love how they turned out, using the sunlight as background enhancement. I was wearing a gorgeous Pink Maxi Skirt that I bought from Shein (size UK 8) before I came here, with a White Bardot Top (size UK 10), also from the company. I love the combination of these two pieces together as it gives off more of a boho chic vibe. It’s so effortless, casual, but put together and perfect for the heat. I finished this look off with my Abercrombie & Fitch Sandals, my Mulberry Small Darley in Oak, my Ray-Ban Aviators, and lots of gorgeous Gold Jewellery pieces from Daisy London, which you know is my favourite by now! I’m so glad I brought my Mulberry Small Darley with me too! It’s been the most perfect little bag to suit all of my needs here! I love it! Being out here in the USA with limited clothing options though, I am so glad that I brought these brown sandals with me as well, and brown bags to match. As long as your bag and your shoes are matching, it’s really easy to look put together and finished in an outfit,…

A Cute Dona Jo Tennis Outfit

A Cute Dona Jo Tennis Outfit This is a different kind of post for me, as it’s about sport, but also fashion! This was a set of photos that I did for a collaboration with Dona Jo on Instagram (I also made a reel), but I ended up loving how it turned out, and I have fond memories of the shoot too, that I wanted to share it here with you! Christen and I headed to the local tennis courts here in Ohio to shoot the photos, and then I ended up teaching him how to play tennis afterwards, as a spur of the moment thing, and we are playing it all the time now! He even bought his own racquet, ha ha. It was super sunny when we were taking the pictures, but the sun had gone down when we started to play, thank goodness. I used to take tennis lessons for a very short time when I was a kid, and I’d always play with friends, so I have fond memories of the game, so this collaboration is one that I’m very excited about! Not to mention the outfit is super cute too! I absolutely love that the shorts have a phone pocket in them! How amazing is that? It’s the most useful thing I have ever experienced! I was wearing the Dona Jo Shakira 13.5″ Skirt in Wildblue (size 1 S) with an Adjustable Sports Bra (size Medium), and a couple of their hair ties. For reference, I am a size 27 in jeans or a 4 US/8 UK, and I wear a 34D bra, in case…

Leopard Simplicity

The Subtle Leopard Top With Black Jeans Happy Monday everyone! How have you been doing? I’ve been getting things ready and planned for my trip to the USA very soon! I literally cannot wait! This is the last outfit post I’m sharing here in the UK though, so the next one you see will be from Sunny America! I know it’s going to be around 30 degrees Celsius the entire time, so that’s going to be an experience for me, ha ha. At least there’s air con though! For this look, I was wearing an Abercrombie & Fitch Leopard Shirt that I actually purchased in the sale last time I was out there in Ohio. It’s really flattering and pretty! I paired it with my American Eagle Black Jeggings, which I put a Pretty Little Thing Belt around, to tie it together. For the rest of the outfit, I went with my Stuart Weitzman Brown Sandals, my Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack, and some Daisy Jewellery (which I always wear). I do always love a tan, brown, taupe, black combination! When it comes down to animal print, I would say that leopard is my favourite to wear! I’m not overly fond of the really loud, bold leopard print anymore, but more subtle, mature designs are wonderful. It really livens up a simple outfit. I also have to give a mention to these shoes because they’re wonderful! I got them on sale at The Outnet and I really like them! I’m taking them on holiday with me! Anyway, please do let me know what you think of this outfit as…

Camel Skirt & Silk Shirt

Camel Skirt With A Silk Shirt Happy Tuesday! The sun has actually been shining here, intermittently, and it’s wonderful! It’s so good to have some warmer weather. How are you guys doing? I enjoyed celebrating the Platinum Jubilee, and soon I will be celebrating July 4th in the United States, and I cannot wait! I’m so excited! Getting to this outfit though, I put something a little smarter/sexier together, using a camel coloured PU leather skirt from I Saw It First, which I styled with one of their beige/nude satin shirts. For my shoes, I went with the Jimmy Choo Romy heels that I love, and finished it off with my Mulberry Darley in Oak, and some Daisy London gold jewellery. I would say this look is quite simplistic and minimal, but the colour palette and the different mediums of fabric texture really make it elevated. I’ve combined satin, leather, suede, and gold, so it’s a look with different elements. Since I am quite pale, I tend to suit the neutral colour palette quite well as I have neutral undertones in my skin too. Shades like camel, beige, oatmeal etc. work wonderfully with my skin tone, and I should really wear them more often, but I’ve vowed to try and wear a lot more colour this summer season! I’m going for brighter, fun, flirty pieces! Anyway, what do you think of this outfit? You can shop the exact/similar pieces below. Lorna xx.

Happy Platinum Jubilee

Happy Platinum Jubilee! Happy Platinum Jubilee everyone here in the UK! Or if you’re celebrating around the world too! I can’t believe this is the longest reign any Royal has ever had! 70 years is crazy! There’s so many celebrations going on and I’m sure we’re all enjoying the four day weekend. I decided to celebrate by wearing red, white, and blue! This lace red top is from Shein, so it’s super affordable, and the denim shorts are from American Eagle! The white shirt is from Allsaints, and the jewellery is from Daisy London! It’s a super simple look, and I love how it turned out! You can also see some videos of me on Instagram by clicking here and here. I remember celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 10 years ago in 2012, when she had reigned 60 years, so it’s crazy to think that another 10 years has passed since then! You can see my outfit from back then by clicking here. What do you think of the look? I’m keeping it super short and simple today. Lorna xx.
