(Shorts – Similar, Tank – Similar, Sandals – Similar, Watch – Exact, Bag – Similar, Sunglasses – Exact) I wore this outfit to town on the weekend with my boyfriend. It’s been so hot here though, I literally haven’t experienced this kind of heat wave over here in England since I was little! It’s been around 28-29 Celsius for ages now and it’s here to stay for a month apparently. None of us are coping very well though since we don’t have air con, ha ha. It was literally so hot though that I just threw anything on that was cool enough to wear. I wore my old Black All Saints Shorts, my H&M Bow Tank Top, my New Look Black & Gold Sandals, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Pink and Rose Gold Henry Skeleton Watch, my Leghila Neon Yellow Bag and my beautiful Ray-Ban Green Mirrored Aviators. I got sent these sunglasses by Sunglasses Shop before I went away to Italy. I took them with me as I am sure you have seen on my Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) and I love them. They are equal favourites to my blue mirrored lenses though! I adore both of the pretty colours as they make my outfits sparkle and add more colour to my face. I love the fact that they can also look like they were Photoshopped in because of how mirrored and reflective they are. If you have been considering getting any of the Ray-Ban mirrored aviators, I recommend you do as you wont regret it! Next on my list is the red mirrored lens from them, those are even prettier!…
(Jeans – Similar, Blazer – Similar, Scarf – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Bag – Similar) I received these beautiful shoes to style from Wonders Shoes and I can’t get enough of them! You will probably have already seen them on my Instagram as I posted some snaps as soon as I got them, but you know I love glitter, so the toe area of these is just beautiful! They look great with shorts and skinny jeans, so I definitely plan on wearing them more! I’m wearing Paper Denim & Cloth Skinny Jeans, a Black Zara Blazer, Wonders Glitter Shoes, a Multi Coloured Scarf from New Look and my Marc by Marc Jacobs Pixie Bag in Coral. I decided to go down a classic route with this outfit in the form of skinny jeans and a black blazer, but I added some colour and print with the multi coloured scarf and the coral bag. I wasn’t too sure on the look at first because there are a lot of different colours, and I’m not sure everything blends well, but I think it’s something different! I always appreciate honesty, so what’s your honest opinion about this outfit of mine? Comment and let me know! I never offend easily!
(Jeans – Similar, Coat – Similar, Boots – Exact, Scarf – Exact, Bag – Exact) I wore this outfit on Friday when I went out for a Good Friday lunch with my boyfriend. We ate at one of our favourite places, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, but I didn’t take any photos this time as I usually eat the same thing when I go there. I have had these boots for such a long time, maybe 2 years, but this is actually my first time wearing them and I really love them. I’m wearing my Levi’s Black Skinny Jeans, my Zara Beige Coat, a River Island Scarf, DUO Laurel Black Suede Boots and a New Look Black, Cream and Tan Bag. I also got this new bag from New Look last week, it was a great price and I actually took a few things off of it as a DIY to make it more sleek, but I love the colour combination it has. I think it goes nicely with the beige coat and black jeans. I’m a big fan of tan, cream and black together and I think the scarf just livens it up a little bit. What do you think of the outfit? Do you like it?
Like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, the rain has been constant every day. It’s made taking outfit photos quite difficult as I have either had to dodge the rain showers or go out with an umbrella. Despite it being really gloomy and damp, I decided to brighten up my day with neons. I’ve grown so fond of the trend and this neon pink jumper/sweater is actually one of my favourites as I’m sure you can tell! I’m wearing my 7 For All Mankind jeans, my Topshop Neon Pink Jumper/Sweater and neon necklace, my ASOS neon yellow bag and neon pink watch, some New Look and my own DIY rainbow bracelets, my Sam Edelman Petty booties and a Lulu Guinness floral umbrella. It’s mine and my boyfriends 4 year anniversary coming up this Friday, so we have a couple of things planned for that day which I’m excited about. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years! I have also acquired a few new clothes over the past 2 months, which I plan on sharing with you soon! It involves my new found love for leggings, some jackets and a couple of jumpers/sweaters! I have one final London trip planned this week too, then I don’t have to go for a while! Hopefully I can dodge the rain showers then too! If I’m lucky! How are you all anyway? Do you like my neon outfit? (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
Those of you who are following me on Twitter and on Instagram (LornaRaindrops) will know that I have been doing a styling challenge with Luisaviaroma for DenimBlog. I got to choose the items online and style them, then send them back. This is because I wasn’t able to attend the Firenze4Eva event in Florence with them back in January. Italy is a long way to go, but I had fun doing it this way! I chose a pair of Dsquared jeans, an American Retro coral/fuchsia shirt and Yves Saint Laurent Marine heels, which I paired with my Topshop gold belt and some New Look and my own DIY coloured bracelets. What do you think of the outfit? You can see the full post on DenimBlog by clicking here. The shirt was a little big, so that’s the reason I belted it. I think it looks better this way anyway. I was also so excited to try out the YSL heels! I have never tried them before, and they are wonderful! So let me know what you think of this look! The items can be found at Luisaviaroma, here.

Here are the outfit photos from my birthday last week on Wednesday. Luckily it was really hot (which makes a change) so I got to wear shorts and a tank/vest top with sandals. The bangle and the bag are 2 presents I got from my boyfriend which I love! We ate at Giraffe which is one of my favourite places to eat and their apple sorbet is the best sorbet ever! I’m wearing my Paige Jimmy Jimmy shorts, an old Miss Selfridge butterfly top, New Look sandals, a Topshop bag and butterfly necklace, a Lulu Guinness pink bangle and my Ray Ban sunglasses. In the last picture you can see my lilac nail polish on my toes. It’s quickly become my favourite shade! I usually prefer the pinks and corals but I think the purple is a nice change! What colour nail polish do you love at the moment? I have a bad habit of biting my nails on my fingers unfortunately so I can never really paint them, ugh!

Sorry I haven’t posted since Thursday, I’ve been so busy this weekend, I just haven’t had chance. Did you all have a nice Fathers Day weekend? I went out to lunch with my dad on the Sunday , did you do anything special? I’m wearing a H&M Summer Dress and feather necklace, my River Island pink satchel, Urban Outfitters wedges and neon orange lipstick, a New Look orange bangle and an ASOS Love Birds double finger ring. I got this dress a while ago but the weather unfortunately never became hot enough to wear it. I did decide to keep the pink satchel though, it’s grown on me so much! I couldn’t send it back. What do you think of the neon orange lipstick? I got it free with an order form Urban Outfitters a while back and it’s so bright! (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
Sometimes I really enjoy wandering around and finding the quiet places where nobody seems to go, out the way of the hustle and bustle of town. Not that my town is that busy to begin with but it’s nice to explore. It seems like the sun was only out for one day unfortunately, now it’s gone back to coldness and rain. Urgh. I’m wearing my custom DIY Levi’s shorts, a Topshop knitted tank top and white tank top, New Look sandals, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie clutch, a HunnyBee Designs yellow bracelet and my Merle O’Grady pendant. I’m hopefully trying to set up another contest to run soon since I haven’t done a proper one in a while. Did you get up to anything fun this weekend? I’ve actually been really good lately and haven’t bought anything except a hat in about 4 weeks! Although I think I need to break my shopping ban soon! More photos after the jump.
