The Oversized Green Plaid Shirt

(Jeans – Exact, Shirt – Exact, Bag – Exact, Boots – Similar, Sunglasses – Exact, Watch – Exact) I wore this outfit yesterday when I went to the cinema with my boyfriend. We watched Captain America 2 at a half 11 showing in the morning and then went for a walk around town afterwards. I absolutely love Captain America as you may have already noticed before, so I wasn’t disappointed by the film at all! After the movie, we headed up the top of town and found this beautiful art museum in an old house. It was really picturesque and just as you would imagine old England to be. The grounds were lovely and that’s where we decided to shoot our photos for the day. I’m so glad the weather has made a turn around, it’s been warm and sunny for a while now! It’s exciting to us Brits! I wore my Urban Renewal Oversized Green Plaid Shirt over a simple white tee from H&M. I actually got this shirt off the mannequin in Urban Outfitters as it was the only one in this colour combination. It’s such a bright and intense green, I didn’t even worry that it’s much too big for me. I think it looks fine when it’s worn slouchy anyway. I paired it with my classic Black Levi’s Skinny Jeans and KG by Kurt Geiger Winona Boots as I love these boots with these jeans, they really lengthen my legs as they are the same colour. I definitely don’t recommend walking around for ages in these shoes though, my feet were killing me after a while! For…

New Autumn Purchases – Part 1

Over the past few months I have been buying a lot of new things for Autumn and Winter. I have picked up quite a few things in sale at places, as well as on eBay and with discount codes, so that always makes me feel better about getting new clothes and accessories. I do have quite a few pieces, which is why I am splitting this post in two. Above is my beloved Topshop red heart polka dot style shirt. I had been in love with this shirt for ages, but it had sold out completely online and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. It was pure luck that I found it in the Selfridges Topshop department on Wednesday when I was in London, so I snapped it up before I could even think about it. I was so excited to finally find it! It’s so pretty, it reminds me a lot of the deeper burgundy shirt with bigger hearts from the Burberry collection, but I find this one is a little more girly. It’s since come back in stock online and you can purchase it here if you love it too. It’s a very popular shirt! These gorgeous Paige Crown Jewels jeans are what I picked up on eBay for only £30! They are brand new with tags and my size, so I couldn’t believe what a bargain I had found. I originally saw these jeans at the press day earlier this year and thought the print was really interesting and cool. I think they will definitely make a statement!

Another Burgundy Sensation

(Coat – Similar, Jeans – Exact, Jumper – Similar, Boots – Exact, Bag – Exact) I wore this outfit on Saturday when my boyfriend and I went to the theatre to watch a musical. We watched Save The Last Dance For Me, which was a war time musical set in the 40’s with all of the older songs. It was really good and I loved it! We went to eat in Pizza Express afterwards, which was only a couple of doors away, so it was definitely a really nice evening. Something different, which I think is always a good thing. I’ve had my hair cut, but I didn’t go for anything too much. I just had my fringe put back in and a bit of length and weight taken off. I was too scared to do anything else! For those of you wondering who my hairdresser is, her names Laura Wilkins and she works at North Hairdressers. I’ve been going to her since I was about 15 and I just don’t feel like anyone else can cut my hair as good as she can. If you are in the Bath area, I recommend you check her out! Anyway, now onto the outfit. I wore my Zara Burgundy Jacket which I purchased from Zara a couple of months ago. It’s no longer available since Zara products sell out like hot cakes, but this is the first time I have worn it. It just wasn’t cold enough before to put it on. I paired it with my new Urban Outfitters Jumper with crystal embellishment on the front. I got this in the…

A Burgundy Dress & Sunsets At The Beach

(Dress – Similar, Sandals – Similar, Bag – Exact, Watch – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Bottle – Exact) At the weekend I went to the beach for the evening with my boyfriend as it was really warm. We went to Burnham On Sea, which is a place I haven’t ever been before. The beaches I used to go to as a child were mainly Weston Super Mare and Weymouth, but even though Burnham is small, it’s really quiet and such a nice place to sit and relax. I’ve never really been on the beach while the sun was setting before either, but it was amazing. The colours that reflect off the ocean are so intense, it’s beautiful! We managed to get some really pretty photos while we were there, which you can see in this post. I wore my Urban Outfitters Burgundy Dress, ASOS Sandals, my Daniel Wellington Watch, my Ray-Ban Aviators and various bracelets. I also wore my Hawthorn & Co. Neutral Cotton Satchel which I got given by the lovely founder of the brand, Amy, from Devon here in the UK. This was the bag that I took with me for my long trip through Paris and Italy last month and it was a life saver! I struggle so much with bags that are heavy before anything is put into them, but this doesn’t have any weight to it since it’s a canvas cotton material, plus it’s not too structured, so you can fit as much stuff into it that you want. It’s definitely a great bag for travelling with and since it’s neutral, it goes with anything!…

Red Leopard Jeans With A Panda Tank Top

(Jeans – Exact, Top – Exact, Jacket – Exact, Shoes – Exact, Watch – Exact) I wore this outfit a couple of weekends ago when I went to dinner with my dad and his new partner. It was a nice simple pub dinner, but I chose my usual of a Caesar salad and I had raspberry sorbet for desert. I never really like to experiment too much with food, it sort of scares me with my intolerance’s, so I generally stick to what I know best. This is another combination though of my favourite colour shades, burgundy, black and white. I thought it would be fun to have elements of leopard and panda though! Plus, the scenery was amazing. I will have more photos of it when I post my upcoming Instagram snaps soon! I’m wearing my Current/Elliott burgundy leopard jeans, an Urban Outfitters Panda top, my Topshop PU leather sleeveless jacket and Studded slippers, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Blade Chrono watch and some various bracelets. Also, next Friday I am headed to Bristol Fashion Week at the Mall at Cribbs Causeway. It’s the same one I attended last time, but obviously for a different season! I will be there as a fashion blogger, tweeting live from the show. Anyone can go though as a regular attendee, you can purchase a ticket at their website. It’s hosted by Andrew Barton and Mark Heyes who are so funny and great together! You should definitely check it out! They also have pampering sessions at the Mall like Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and more!

Neon Pink Jeans And Rainbow Cat iPhone Case

(Jeans – Similar, Top – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Bag – Similar, iPhone Case – Exact, Watch – Exact) I took these photos last weekend quickly while I was out with my boyfriend for a little while. There are not a huge amount of photos though this time, sorry! Just a few different angles. I decided to wear neon pink since I will be saying goodbye to the hot weather, I wanted to be as bright as I could, ha ha! I’m wearing my 7 For All Mankind Neon Pink Jeans, my Miss Selfridge Studded Shirt, a H&M Mini Pink Bag, my Topshop Lace Up Flats, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Blade Chrono Rose Gold Watch and an Urban Outfitters Rainbow Cat iPhone Case. Also, I did feature this iPhone case in my London purchases post a little while ago, but I thought I would share it properly. I am absolutely in love with it because it has a cat on it and it’s ombre with two of my favourite colours; pink and purple! I absolutely adore it and don’t want to take it off! You can purchase all of the clothes I’m wearing with the ‘exact’ and ‘similar’ links above.

Koral Jeans In Merlot With Black And White

(Jeans – Exact, Blazer – Exact, Top – Similar, Shoes – Similar, Bracelet – Similar) This is an outfit that I put together when I was styling these gorgeous Koral Los Angeles jeans for reviewing. I have fallen so hard for these jeans it’s crazy! I don’t often come across a new brand that I am smitten with from the off, so I’m very happy to be able to review and style these jeans as well as interview the founders for DB. I love the pairing of black and white with a deep red, there is something about it that I am always drawn to, so this outfit just fell in place when I was putting it together. I’m wearing my Koral skinny jeans in Merlot, an Urban Outfitters Stitch To Wear t-shirt and a black blazer, black heels and Lamb bracelet from Topshop. So what do you think of the outfit? Also, just to let you know, London Fashion Week is starting on the 14th and I will be live streaming all of the shows here on my blog. You can find the advert at the top of my side bar to the right which will take you to the page which will have the video stream. I love watching the catwalk shows live from the runway! Don’t forget to watch and let your friends know they can watch live too!

My New Purchases From London

So as promised, here are my purchases from London from the weekend. For those of you who missed the post (you can see it here). I said I would reveal what was hiding in the shopping bags as soon as I could and here everything is! Since everything was insanely hectic in London, I never tried anything on, I usually just analyze the item and I can tell from looking at it if it will fit me, so I just take what I think will fit and hope for the best. Luckily everything worked out perfectly! Above (left) is a LOVE burgundy maxi skirt which I picked up at Topshop on Oxford Street and (right) an elephant necklace from Urban Outfitters. As you know burgundy is a weakness of mine and I couldn’t resist the colour and the elephant is just adorable! I have had my eye on it for some time. Above is a Pull and Bear khaki jacket with faux leather sleeves. Again, I got this on Oxford Street as I passed by the store. It’s much better suited to me than the Topshop version that I wanted in my wish list because this one has a drawstring waist and the other one doesn’t, so it looked too boxy. I much prefer it when brands take masculine items and make them feminine. If you want a masculine item you can just buy a men’s version, so that’s why I favoured this one instead. I did give you a preview of this worn on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) and I love how it fits! Above are two swallow print shirts/blouses from…
