The Teddy Bomber Jacket With A Dress

Allsaints Suede Bomber Jacket Over A Floral Dress Outfit First of all, I hope you’re having a lovely week. I’m on a very important photoshoot today, which I will be sharing with you soon, but it’s probably one of my most exciting ones to date! I’m doing ok, I have been a little unwell lately, and I have also been doing quite a few different things, but I’m good. Getting to this post though, can you believe that these photos were actually shot in Bath? I know we have these rules about only being allowed to have Bath Stone (which is that yellow shade you always see in my pictures), but we found this old red brick area down by the river a couple of weekends ago and it made the ideal backdrop for this outfit. I absolutely love how this turned out! So, I was wearing my Allsaints Keiko Bomber Jacket in Black which I layered over my The East Order Black Floral Dress, finished off with my Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers. I absolutely adore this jacket and I’m so glad that I picked it up in the sale a few weeks ago because it’s amazing! I sized up to a UK 12 in it as it runs small and I wanted more of a looser fit, and it does a really good job of filling my need for the ever amazing Saint Laurent Teddy Jacket that I was obsessed with for ages, but with the £1400 price tag, couldn’t afford, so this is the next best thing! Now getting to the dress, I hadn’t heard of The East…

Roses And Sunsets

A H&M Rose Print Shirt At Sunset I still have some photos from Lyme Regis that I haven’t yet shared with you! After this, there’s just one more set, and I was going to save my favourite until last (which is this look) but I decided to post it now instead, because I love it so much. As you know from what I spoke about in my actual Lyme Regis blog post, it was raining constantly, so we got lucky here as it had stopped the evening before we were due to come home. We ventured down towards the beach to shoot some photos, at around 8pm, and then as we walked around the side, we were greeted with the most stunning pastel hues! It doesn’t show up as well in some of these photos, but there were pinks, oranges, yellows and even greens as it went down to meet the blue shades of the water. I just knew that this was where I wanted to take my photos to share with you all. I was a bit nervous going so close to the waters edge though, as I do suffer sea sickness and vertigo, and with the waves coming towards me, it was making me a little dizzy, so I just tried not to look down and stuck with it, and I’m glad I did as they turned out beautiful. For my outfit, I was wearing a pretty H&M Rose Print Blouse that I bought a few months ago. It’s actually gorgeous and is full length, with more of a bowling shirt style, but I tied it up as…

A Floral Dress With Kicks

A Floral Dress With Alexander McQueen Trainers If you’re thinking that this dress looks familiar, it might be because you saw it when I went to Clarks Village a couple of months ago! Despite buying it on a whim in Urban Outfitters when I was in Cardiff, Wales, it’s actually become one of my favourite dresses as it’s so lightweight, colourful, and soft. Instead of dressing it up this time with a belt bag and heeled boots, I dressed it down and opted for my Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneakers (which you can tell I am obsessed with right now) and my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Bag and their New Wave Sunglasses. If you have been following me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) then you might have noticed how much I adore these shoes as I won’t stop wearing them! I’m mostly loving trainers/sneakers in general with dresses and skirts at the moment as it’s such an easy combination. I love how it mixes a more fashionable and dressed up look with some more casual and cooler elements, which harmonises well. It doesn’t work with everything though as there have been some dresses I tried and it didn’t work out, but in general, it’s a look that I’m very fond of. Anyway, I hope you’re all well and have some great weekend plans! Let me know what you think of the outfit as always! Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

The Topshop Burgundy Leather Skirt Outfit

A Burgundy Leather Skirt With Golden Goose I hope you all had a nice weekend! We shot these photos on Saturday and it was one of the worst days for weather, ha ha. One moment it was raining, then sunny, then windy, then rainy… It was on and off like that all day, but I wasn’t going to let it stop me from wearing this outfit that I had planned. I was wearing a Goonies t-shirt that I chose from Truffle Shuffle again (the same place that I got my Guns N’ Roses tee from) but I decided to pair it with this Topshop Burgundy Faux Leather Skirt. Remember I showed this to you in my July update post, well I thought it would be a very good skirt to dress down with my Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers as well, to keep everything really casual. I often find that leather skirts can come with a stigma, or be seen as a little trashy sometimes, but I purely think it depends on the styling and how you wear them. I love a combination like this as it makes it suitable for the daytime, and that’s what I went with. For the accessories, I went with my Saint Laurent New Wave Sunglasses, and some simple jewellery pieces on my wrist to tie it together. Despite these sunglasses being quite unique and statement, I actually find myself reaching for them all the time as they really make an outfit pop. I know I’m not wearing them here, and they’re hooked onto my t-shirt, but even that adds a different element to an outfit.…

McQueen Kind Of Scene

How I Styled My Alexander McQueen Sneakers A comfortable and casual look here, one that I’ve been gravitating towards on the cooler days. You might recognise the above photo from my Alexander McQueen oversized sneakers review that I did a couple of weeks ago, and this was actually from the first time wearing them out. I’m still very much obsessed with them and can’t be without them now! I paired them with my trusty L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite again, since I wear these with everything, and wore a white H&M Tank Top, my ASOS Western Belt, and my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour in Grey and their New Wave Sunglasses. I know you can’t exactly class this outfit as extremely stylish or fashionable, and in truth, most of what I wear doesn’t fall into that category, but I do like being able to put pieces together to create outfits, even if they are casual and simple like this. I’ve got so many other outfits planned with these Alexander McQueen sneakers too, I can’t wait to show you all! Anyway, I’m keeping this post short! Let me know what you think of my outfit and I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead! Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

Linen Shorts & A Leather Jacket

A White Leather Jacket With Linen Shorts Outfit As I’m sitting here writing this blog post, looking out the window and looking at the sun, I really feel that it’s summer now. There’s been some beautiful sunsets lately and I’m enjoying that golden glow that spreads across the fields. When I look back at these photos that we shot in Lyme Regis almost 1 month ago, it’s crazy how quickly the time has gone by and how much I miss the scenery there. The Jurassic Coast is one of the most beautiful places, even when it’s raining, so I could definitely see myself moving down that way when the time is right, to be around a more scenic environment. Isn’t it just beautiful? These photos were shot at around 8pm on one of the evenings when the rain had cleared up, and the blue of it was very intense, which I think contrasts off the orange pebbles beautifully. For my outfit, I wore a pair of Mango Linen Striped Beige Shorts that I bought a couple of months ago in their outlet for a bargain price, and paired them with a Mango Strappy Top too. As you can tell, I’m really loving their clothes at the moment, and the fact that these shorts have a paper bag style to them and a tie waist, which makes them really flattering. I also layered on my Allsaints Dalby Leather Jacket in White over the shoulders, to keep the chill at bay and paired these neutral tones with my Sam Edelman White Loafers. I have this leather jacket in blush pink and I…

The Palm Print Playsuit Outfit

The Palm Print Playsuit Outfit You know the summer is here when I start rocking the playsuits! Ha ha. Like last year when I was living in them, I’m kind of doing the same this year, but I’ve bought a lot of different versions, as I mentioned. One of my new ones is this gorgeous H&M Palm Print Playsuit and it’s so comfortable! Most of my new ones are from H&M and they only cost £12.99 at retail, so you can’t really go wrong! I always find it’s about how you style the high street pieces that makes it look expensive or really put together, which is why I always invest more in my accessories instead! To complete this H&M Playsuit, I wore my new Mulberry Small Darley in Rosewater (the one I picked up in the Factory outlet on the way back from Lyme Regis), I also chose my Rebecca Minkoff Pink Mules, some simple gold jewellery (the bracelet is here and the necklace is here), and a pair of the Saint Laurent Jerry Sunglasses that I’m wearing here. I mixed light pinks and black to complement the playsuit colour palette, and I really like how it turned out. You might have noticed that I went for something a bit different with my hair too, I went for a loose braid! Anyway, I’m keeping this blog post short, but let me know what you think, as always!

A Blue Skinny Jeans Moment

I’m Back In My Blue Jeans! It feels crazy writing this, but I’m actually back in blue jeans! I haven’t worn blue jeans in so long, I think the last time I did was when it was snowing (in this post) and that was back in February! Honestly you can expect to see them a lot more now as this new pair is a pair I am absolutely in love with! Aren’t they just stunning? They’re L’AGENCE Margot since I am obsessed with that cut, in the wash called Cascade (see here), and even though it’s not got a lot of depth to the blue, the fit makes up for that! They’re one of my most flattering jeans I think, and the back pockets are perfect. For this outfit, I styled these L’AGENCE Margot Jeans with my Mango Knitted Top, my Gucci GG Belt in Brown, my Sam Edelman Loafers in White and my Loeffler Randall Louise Basket Bag. For my Sunglasses, they are by Ray-Ban, my watch is my RADO Open Heart Skeleton Watch, and my jewellery is from Mango as well. It was a really simple and casual look that I wore on the beach in Lyme Regis. I really love the pebble beaches as they offer such a different look to the traditional sandy beaches, which I think is great for photos! Plus, we shot these pictures in the evening between 8-9pm, so it had a beautiful glow in the air without the harsh sunlight, which always adds a majestic vibe. Anyway, as always, I want to know what you think of my outfit and the photos!…
