A Burgundy Leather Jacket Outfit

A Burgundy Leather Allsaints Jacket Outfit Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! I know lots of things are going back to normal now in the UK and that’s exciting! I hope they continue because it’s been really stressful for all of us. Adam and I shot these photos earlier on in the year actually, and again, I hadn’t got around to posting them, but I’m glad that I have quite a few outfits left over to share with you at the moment. I’m planning on shooting new ones in a couple of weeks time, so that’s exciting! I haven’t done an outfit shoot since March! Wow, how time flies! Anyway, for this look, I was wearing an Allsaints Dalby Leather Jacket in Dark Raspberry Pink (buy it on Revolve Clothing by clicking here), which I got in the sale earlier this year for around 60% off! I took a size UK 8 in this one, if you were wondering! I’d always wanted a burgundy leather jacket and finally found one that was perfect! I paired it with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Grey, my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black, a simple Black Long Sleeve Top from GAP, and my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oxblood. There’s something about a burgundy, black, and grey combination that I love. These shades just complement each other really well. Are you a fan? Again, as these photos were shot a few months back, I was a bit more curvier here than I am now as I’ve still lost all of the weight that I gained a while ago. I think…

Outside Celine On Mount Street

Back in October of 2019, you may remember that Adam and I took a trip to London and stayed in Mayfair for a couple of days, to take some photos and do some shopping. These pics were some that I really liked, outside the Celine store and in front of that McLaren car, but I hadn’t yet shared them to my fashion blog. I finally finished editing them the other day, so here they are! These were taken on the last day of London, before we were due to come home, and after I had purchased my Celine Nano Luggage in Glazed Nut! I still adore that bag! For this outfit, I was wearing a simple look of a Topman Brown Sweater, which I styled with my L’AGENCE Margot Jeans in Graphite, and a pair of Topshop Western Boots. For my accessories, I finished it off with my Mulberry Small Darley in Oak, my Louis Vuitton LV Belt, and a simple gold coin necklace. I wanted to keep everything in the brown and neutral colour palette, which I did, and I quite like how it turned out. I also borrowed Adam’s Ray-Ban sunglasses for some of these pics! Anyway, I hope you like the outfit and the photos! Let me know as always. Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

Pink Top & Black Jeans

These photos were taken around August last year, on a blistering hot day and I actually ended up regretting wearing jeans, ha ha. I hadn’t gotten around to sharing the pictures yet as I had other ones to edit, then Autumn took over and these got left behind, however with the Covid issue, this has actually worked out better as I have a Summer look to share with you! My outfit was a Pink Knitted Mango Tank Top, which I styled with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite (I do still live in these!), my B-Low The Belt, my Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneakers, and my Saint Laurent White Sunglasses, finished off with a Mango Shell Necklace. I wasn’t completely sure if I loved the outfit when I put it together because of the sunglasses, but I went with it. Sometimes it’s all about experimentation and seeing what you can come up with, ha ha. On a separate note, I’m planning on taking my very first flight next month in July! I’m not sure which country I’m going to yet, it depends on the air bridges and what’s open, but I’m thinking Spain or France, so I can test a flight before flying to the United States this year. I’m finally doing what I wanted to do and hoping it goes well! How are you all doing? Our hairdressers and restaurants etc. open up on the 4th July and I cannot wait either! I need my hair cut!

A Look Back At My Favourite Outfits Of 2010

As per a reader’s recommendation (Frank) I am doing a blog post that looks back at some of my all time favourite outfits from the year that I started my blog back in 2010! Narrowing this down to just 18 images was incredibly hard, but I didn’t want to make the blog post too long! Raindrops of Sapphire turned 10 on March 10th this year, so it’s absolutely crazy to look back and realise that these photos are 9-10 years old, as it feels like only a few years ago that I started this journey. One thing that I have noticed is that my personal style has changed a huge amount over the years, as you can see from these photos here, however one thing that remains a constant is my love of jeans. I still live in them and probably always will, ha ha. I tend to prefer the more muted pieces now, when it comes to bags and shoes, and I wear a lot less colour, but I think I’ve really developed my own personal style now and I enjoy having more of a curated selection of pieces that I wear more often. Anyway, take a look at the photos below and let me know if you remember any of them and which are your favourites! Lorna xx. This was the vest first proper photoshoot that I did for my blog, I remember taking a few different outfits to the Botanical Gardens and shooting about 4 of them. This was my favourite! A pair of 7 For All Mankind Gummy Denim Leggings were the ones that I wore…

Styling 2 Different Leather Skirts

Happy June! I’m pleased to announce that things in the UK are finally going back to normal, the shops re-opened today and restaurants are beginning to make plans, which is amazing. I can’t wait for everything to go back to normal. How are you all feeling about the lock down being lifted and life getting back on track? I’m hoping that I will be able to see Adam again soon so that we can do some photoshoots together, as we still work together, and I will finally have some new content for you! These pictures were shot in a hotel room back in February or March, before the lock down happened, so I only have a few sets left to last me, which is why I haven’t had much content available. The first outfit was a Mango Cream Shirt with a Topshop Burgundy Leather Skirt, and the second one was a Mango Brown Shirt with an ASOS Black Leather Skirt. Both worn with a Mango Bralette in Leopard underneath to add a little something extra. I would say that both of these outfits are suitable for nighttime wear. You might notice that I was a lot curvier in these pictures too, and that’s because I had gained quite a bit of weight, but I’ve lost it all now and am pretty much back to my starting weight, so I can finally fit back into most of my clothes! I’m planning to put together more content that isn’t outfit based as well, because I need to keep updating you guys, but without having been able to do photoshoots, I couldn’t upload…

Casually Burgundy

I wanted to first start out by saying thank you to everyone for your patience in my updates here. I know I’ve gone quite a while lately between posts, and I’m starting to feel a lot better mentally. Things just take time and I’m able to focus a lot more now. I wont lie, it’s been really tough. Your support has meant the world to me though, seeing all your lovely comments and words of encouragement really do help, seriously. I mean that, I’m so grateful for everyone here in this community. This is an outfit that I wore a couple of months ago before the lock down took place, it was something comfortable and casual, and again, by Abercrombie & Fitch. I was wearing their Curve Love High Rise Super Skinny Jeans in Black and their Soft AF Burgundy Jumper, finished off with my Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Sneakers. I’m mostly feeling outfits like this at the moment (remember this one?), as they’re what I wear to the park for my walk and just running errands. I haven’t really dressed up in a long time! How are you all anyway? I hope you’re well! Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

Contemplation

I know that I’ve been quite quiet on the blog scene and social media scene, and I did explain to you in a past post that I’m going through a lot at the moment, which is still true. I’m getting there slowly though, but I’m sure a lot of you can relate, and it’s tough, when your mind and head space are completely fried. That’s the reason I have been finding it hard to sit and write to you all, because I can’t even navigate my own thoughts and feelings on a day to day basis, let alone write them down constructively, which is why I just decided to start typing, and see what happens. All I know at the moment is that I really want to travel to the United States. I want to visit a few states there and experience so much of America that I have been dreaming to do my whole life. Of course I am nervous of flying, but I want to be able to just get on the plane and do it. I decided that I can’t really just sit at home all the time and do nothing, now is about travelling and experiencing culture, which I am excited to do. There’s a new chapter in my life that’s about to begin and I’m both nervous and excited for it to begin, but getting used to my current situation is definitely a shock to my system. How are you all coping right now with the lock down and the virus? For us, we’re still in lock down for a while and I’m just coping…

Staying Home

I can never catch a break at the moment, ha ha. My blog access to my admin was down for just over a week and I couldn’t write any blog posts, but it’s finally back up and running. How is everyone managing with the lock down? I know not every country is in one, but for us here in the UK, we are. We are only allowed out to go to do essential grocery shopping, to get medical supplies, and to exercise alone for a short amount of time, to prevent the spread of Covid-19. I stay in mostly all the time anyway, only going out in the daytime sometimes for lunch, because I work from home and don’t enjoy nightlife out. I will admit it is hard though, staying in like this constantly. How is everyone else managing? What are some of the things you’re doing to combat the boredom? For those of you interested in my outfit, I’m wearing an Allsaints shirt and my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans, but I wasn’t going to make this blog post about the outfit, I was going to keep it about the staying in prospect as that’s what everyone is going through at the moment. Anyway, I hope you’re all well and keeping safe away from the virus? Let me know! Lorna xx.
