Orange & Beige Tones

This weather is crazy isn’t it? We had to cancel our holiday to St. Ives this week as we were meant to leave yesterday, however the rain is set for over a week to be torrential and cause problems. We thought it was better to postpone it until October, which I hope will be fine! It’s currently dry right now, but the rain is on and off and after tomorrow it’s going to be intense I think as they issued an amber flood warning. Hopefully everyone will be fine! Getting to this look though, I’m not doing it as an official outfit post with options to buy as it was shot a few months ago in Bristol, and I hadn’t got around to sharing it with you yet, so these pieces are pretty much out of stock. The top and shorts were by Pretty Little Thing, the shoes were Kurt Geiger from years ago, and my bag is my Valentino Lock Bag in Ivory. It was just something I’d put together as a summery going out look, and I thought I better eventually share it with you now as today marks the very first day of Autumn (officially), so it made sense! Anyway, my next blog post coming up is an update, and I have a LOT of things to share with you, now that I’m finally back on track with everything in my life and blogging again, I’ve managed to find that balance back and get my inspiration again. It could be to do with the fact that it’s Autumn now and that’s my favourite season that gives me…

In Chloe On A Lock

We shot these photos a few weeks ago when we were still having a heat wave, it was around 28C this day, and it was actually really nice to do some proper summertime photos, utilising the scenery a bit more as well. If you’re wondering what I’m sat on here, it’s a Lock on the River Avon. I’ve always been fascinated by those and how they work, I think it’s such a smart, simple and cool idea, ha ha. Anyway, for my outfit, I was wearing my The East Order Black Floral Dress again (you saw it here), but this time I dressed it up a bit more with a Western edge, choosing my Chloe Susanna Boots in Beige Suede and my Chloe Small Drew Bag in Motty Grey to finish it off. Despite not having worn these boots in my outfits on my blog very much, I absolutely adore them, and the velvet version, so you will be seeing them a lot more I think, providing the weather is ok and not raining. Can you even imagine the damage in the rain? Especially to my beautiful velvet pair! Anyway, I would love to know what you think of this look on me, your comments are always welcome!

Blue Jeans And Goonies

Something casual and something comfortable, going back to the basics of blue skinny jeans and a grey t-shirt with trainers, something I feel the most at ease in. I was wearing my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans, but this time in the Cascade wash, the same pair that you saw here, and I styled them with my Goonies t-shirt, my Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers and my Saint Laurent New Wave Sunglasses. I’m going to be keeping this text super short as this was a spur of the moment outfit choice as well as location, as I’d taken a pair of jeans with me to keep warm if I was too cold in my skirt, but I ended up liking it, so photos were taken! Anyway, I hope you had a lovely weekend! Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

3 New Femme Luxe Outfits

3 New Outfits From Femme Luxe You may remember last month that I shot a collaboration with Femme Luxe, featuring 3 different going out and nighttime looks, well I’m back again with a second set and I’m styling 3 different pieces again! One is a dress that’s perfect for the summer evenings, while the other 2 are lounge wear and perfect for running some simple errands or wearing around the home. I know you really liked the photos from the last collaboration, so this time I have included quite a few more, in all different angles. I really love doing shoots inside pretty hotel rooms as well, there’s always a different vibe about them! Scroll down to find out more about these pieces from Femme Luxe below! This gorgeous dress is the Madonna Black Polka Dot Mini Mesh Dress and it’s so unique and cool! That’s not my underwear that you can see there, it’s actually the bodysuit section of the dress and the polka dot mesh skirt hangs over the top. I took a size UK10 in it and it fits perfectly, so I seem to be a pretty consistent size in this brand. It’s stretchy all over too, so it’s actually really comfortable to wear. You could easily dress this down with flats though for more of a skater vibe, but I dressed it up with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle and my Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch, just to add a pop of colour to the statement black. I genuinely love this dress though, I think it’s fantastic! I will say that you do need some confidence to wear it,…

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.…
