Grey And Blue Double Denim

A Levi’s Denim Jacket With Grey Skinny Jeans Hey everyone! How are you all? I’m so happy that we are finally out of lock down and now in a more free way of living with the shops being open! Some normality again! I feel like this outfit is so me! It’s been a while since I did double denim, and it’s been even longer since I wore grey skinny jeans or a denim jacket for that matter! I love this kind of outfit and I feel so comfortable in it, as it’s been a uniform of mine for well over a decade. Most of these pieces are new too, so let me tell you about them! I was wearing my Levi’s Trucker Denim Jacket that I got a few months ago, and layered it over my Abercrombie & Fitch Tie Knot Tee in White. I think wearing a knot in the front of a t-shirt really gives it a different vibe to keeping it plain, it’s just so elevating. Then for my jeans (I recently included these in my wish list), they’re the Joe’s Jeans The Charlie Crop Jeans in Solitude and they’re incredible! They’re so stretchy and comfortable, and they’re the perfect shade of grey, so I’m obsessed with these right now! Then for my shoes, I wore my brand new Gucci Brixton Loafers in White, which again, I’m absolutely obsessed with because they’re so versatile, classy, and beyond comfortable! I will be reviewing them soon! Then I finished it off with my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Bag in Grey, to pull the shades together. Denim has…

Some Photo Outfit Updates From Instagram

For those of you that don’t follow me on Instagram, I regularly share some photos there of outfits and details, that I don’t often put on my fashion blog. I love to be able to share in the moment snaps and quick pictures, without doing a full on photo shoot that’s usually required for blog quality posts. Since these are taken with my phone, they aren’t up to my usual standard, but I do love these pics a lot and felt like I’d like to make a roundup post for you so that you don’t miss out on my social media content! As Spring is here and Summer is quickly approaching, I’ve been ordering some new denim shorts, cropped tops, bikinis, and t-shirts, so that I’m all set for comfortable wear! I’m seriously hoping I will be able to go to the pool or beach this Summer too, since last year was a bust for everyone! My fingers are tightly crossed that I will be in the United States for the warmer months, so I’m planning on packing some of these pieces in my luggage! I’m also looking forward to getting my hair done next month! The 12th April is just a few days away and I cannot wait to get some normality back in my life! How are all of you? I hope you’re cheering up and looking to the brighter days ahead! Lorna xx.

Snake Print Leather Skirt With Thigh High Boots

Snake Print Leather Skirt With Thigh High Boots Happy Weekend everyone! The story behind this outfit is an interesting one, ha ha! I put this look together a few months ago (maybe 4-5) and I took it with me on a previous shoot, so that I could take pics of it, but unfortunately never got around to it as other looks took precedence. I then took it with me a second time, and the same thing happened! So third time lucky, my mum and I actually got to shoot this outfit a few weeks ago, finally! So here it is! And as it turns out, I love it! I think it might be one of my favourite looks that I’ve put together in recent years! For this look, I had on my Allsaints Lena Oba Leather Snakeprint Skirt, which I tucked my 525 Beige Roll Neck Top into. I layered my Zara Oatmeal Coat over the top of my shoulders, pulled my DUO Empress Over The Knee Boots on, and finished it off with my Louis Vuitton Mini Palm Springs Backpack. This skirt is actually one of my favourites as I love the snakeprint on it! Sometimes this kind of print can come across as trashy, but Allsaints did a fantastic job of keeping it classy! I also think that mixing it with neutrals, different fabrics, and proportions, is a key way to keeping it styled and chic. It’s in the sale currently, and does run a little bit big in terms of sizing. I would love your opinion on this outfit too! What do you think? Lorna xx. *This…

Leather Leggings With A Corset Belt

Leather Leggings With A White Shirt And Corset Belt Happy Saturday! These photos were shot a few weeks ago when the first sign of Spring was starting to hit! It was pretty chilly, but there was some beautiful sunshine hitting, which made a change! I honestly can’t believe how fast the time is going though! Can you? It’s already past mid March, the clocks go forward next weekend, and it will soon be Summer! Can you believe it? Everything has been a blur for the last year, it’s madness. Anyway, for this outfit, I wanted to mix it up a bit and do something different. I actually put this together on a whim and wasn’t expecting it to look this cool, so I really like how it turned out! I was wearing my Commando Faux Leather Leggings (they’re so flattering and comfortable, they’re my favourite leggings) with my Oversized Zara White Shirt. Since this shirt is really loose, I used my Pretty Little Thing Corset Belt to pull the waist together and create the hourglass shape. I then finished it off with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 Heels, and my Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag in Black. Black and white always makes a statement when it comes to outfits, and I think this look here proves that. It mixes fashionable and classy together, in a fun, but sophisticated way. I’m keeping this post short and sweet, focused mostly on the outfit, so what’s your opinion on this outfit? I’d love to know! Lorna xx.

It’s 11 Years Today, Since I…

…Started Raindrops of Sapphire! I founded this fashion blog on the 10th March 2010 and I cannot believe that 11 years has gone by already. I shot these photos yesterday with my mum, and in all honesty, I had forgotten that it was my blog’s birthday today, but as it turns out, these photos actually ended up being perfect for this personal post. There’s something about them that embodies a more confident, powerful vibe that I’ve been feeling lately. I don’t know if it’s the trousers and heels combination, but I really love how it turned out. I will briefly tell you about the outfit at the bottom of this post, but first, I’ll share my thoughts at the moment with you! Where I’m at right now is definitely a good place, for the most part, but I also have my ups and downs. Like everyone around the whole world has felt this year, it’s been absolutely insane and crazy. None of us could have predicted that we would be in the midst of a global pandemic, and hardly any of us have been able to handle it with grace and positivity. It’s been extremely worrying, depressing, and quite frankly, life changing, especially for myself. I never thought that I’d be celebrating my blog’s 11th birthday this way, especially as the lockdowns have been on and off for a year now, but here we are. One thing that this has taught me is that I shouldn’t take everything for granted. Just the simple act of going out to eat lunch, see my family, and just simply going for a picnic…

Allsaints Tan Suede Balfern With Flared Jeans

Allsaints Suede Balfern With Cropped Flared Jeans Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week goes well! The weather finally warmed up somewhat recently and my mum and I were able to go out and shoot some photos for a little while, making sure to avoid anyone else out walking since we’re still in lockdown. How are you all anyway? For this outfit, I put together something a little bit different, but also classic for me. I wore my new Allsaints Tan Suede Balfern Jacket that I got in a size up so that I could wear it over my 525 Roll Neck Jumper in Cream. I then styled it with my new PAIGE Claudine Cropped Flares in Seaspray Distressed, which I wrapped my Gucci Mini Belt in Tan around the waist, and then finished it off with my Topshop Snake Print Boots. Now you know me, I’m always a skinny jeans girl and I rarely ever wear anything but skinny jeans, but when I saw these PAIGE Jeans, I fell in love with them. The cropped flared fit is the perfect length for my shorter height, as it means I can wear them almost full length. Plus, they’re super comfortable and the wash is beautiful, so I’m thinking of reviewing these jeans soon on The Jeans Blog. I will let you know when I do! Now getting to the suede jacket, isn’t it incredible? You’ve probably read my Allsaints Balfern Leather Jacket review before, but if you haven’t, you will know that the Balfern is my favourite design of theirs. I own numerous jackets in that cut, and this one…

A Beige Shacket With Blue Jeans

A Beige Zara Plaid Shirt Jacket Outfit Happy Tuesday! You probably remember this shacket outfit that I wore a little while ago, featuring the black and white shirt jacket from Zara, but I also wanted to share this Beige Shacket that I got from the brand too. I bought them at the same time and fell in love with the trend as they’re so comfortable! I paired this one with a Zara Knitted Crop Top, much like the grey version I had before, and a pair of my Citizens of Humanity Olivia Jeans. I finished it off with my Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack and my Dr. Martens Serena Fur Lined Boots to pull it all together. It’s a comfortable and casual look that’s easy for wearing when it’s chilly out, but not too cold. I’m keeping this blog post shorter for you today as I’m focusing on the outfit specifically, so let me know what you think of it in the comments below! Lorna xx.

The Black & White Plaid Shacket

The Plaid Shacket Outfit Sorry for my little absence the last couple of weeks, I have been really busy working on some other projects which I’m excited about. On an exiting note though, did any of you catch the snow? I finally saw snow for the first time in two years here! Ha ha! It was gone overnight, but I was excited to see it! I went outside at 6am just to take it all in. For this outfit, that I shot a few weeks ago, I was wearing this really cool Zara Black and White Plaid Shacket (which is a term used for shirt jacket) and I layered it over my Knitted Grey Bralet, also from the brand. My jeans are the AGOLDE Riley in Black, which I combined with my ASOS Western Belt, and then finished it all off with my Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots in Anthracite. I like the tough and masculine vibe that this look has, with the oversized shirt, and the looser fitting mom jeans, but I think it’s made feminine with the cropped top, and even though I’m wearing combat boots, they’re extra girly with the crystals on them, so it’s a good mix of feminine and masculine. What’s your opinion on this outfit I put together? And how are you all? Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.
