The Black & White Plaid Shacket

The Plaid Shacket Outfit Sorry for my little absence the last couple of weeks, I have been really busy working on some other projects which I’m excited about. On an exiting note though, did any of you catch the snow? I finally saw snow for the first time in two years here! Ha ha! It was gone overnight, but I was excited to see it! I went outside at 6am just to take it all in. For this outfit, that I shot a few weeks ago, I was wearing this really cool Zara Black and White Plaid Shacket (which is a term used for shirt jacket) and I layered it over my Knitted Grey Bralet, also from the brand. My jeans are the AGOLDE Riley in Black, which I combined with my ASOS Western Belt, and then finished it all off with my Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots in Anthracite. I like the tough and masculine vibe that this look has, with the oversized shirt, and the looser fitting mom jeans, but I think it’s made feminine with the cropped top, and even though I’m wearing combat boots, they’re extra girly with the crystals on them, so it’s a good mix of feminine and masculine. What’s your opinion on this outfit I put together? And how are you all? Lorna xx. *This post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog running.

My Subtle, Yet Stylish Festive Outfit

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Merry Christmas Eve! I’m not posting on the actual day, so that’s why I’m wishing you all a very Happy Christmas right now! If you are able to celebrate it, as I know there’s a lot in the UK who are in Tier 4 and aren’t allowed. The times are really hard right now, but I feel like now is the time where we really need to appreciate what we have, the meaning of friends and family, and not taking things for granted. Even just the everyday, simple things like going to the shop, it’s to be appreciated. I also have a couple of posts coming up before December ends, including a roundup of my outfits from 2020, so definitely keep checking back! That will be on the 27th and the 31st! Now getting to my outfit here, I was wearing my old Topshop Rainbow Metallic Jumper/Sweater (which you have seen before here and here). I styled it with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Coated Black, as I think this jumper looks amazing with waxed jeans! I then added some festive sparkle with my Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots in Anthracite, and finished it off with my ASOS Western Belt, that I have worn numerous times before. In the past, I have worn an Elf costume or a Mrs. Santa suit, and even some crazy Christmas jumpers, but this year, I wanted to keep it a little more classy, a little more muted, and more matching of my personality at the moment. The jumper itself is knitted with gold metallic threads, so it actually sparkles really nicely…

The Checked Burberry Scarf Outfit

Oversized Burberry Scarf With A White Borg Coat Can you believe that September is almost upon us? This year has been one of the fastest years I have ever experienced. I know that’s due to Coronavirus and being in lock down for most of it, and everything still not fully being back to normal, but it’s still shocking how fast it’s gone. Summer is pretty much over, if this current weather is anything to go by, and I’m looking forward to wearing my Autumn clothes again! Things of course will be a little different now though since Adam and I aren’t working together anymore, so we will see how my photos turn out going forward. Speaking of Autumn though, here’s a set of photos that I held back from March! I was wearing my Topshop White Borg Coat, that I purchased in January and absolutely adore! I layered it over one of my cream coloured roll neck sweaters, and went with my basic L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite. I know, you guys are gonna be sick of these soon, ha ha! I swear by them though, and live in them, so I recommend them (click here to buy them) as the best black skinny! Now getting to the brown accents and what I think pulls the outfit together, I went with my brown Sam Edelman Boots, and finished it off with this gorgeous Burberry Oversized Checked Cashmere Scarf. I actually purchased this scarf in London back in October, and I think it complements my skin tone and style perfectly! I couldn’t love it more if I tried! When I…

Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots Outfit

Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots With A Grey Coat Back in early January, when it was pretty cold, we shot these photos around by the Bath Spa in town and I really liked how they came out. They had more of a darker, arty vibe to them, but it was a struggle posing for too long as I remember my hands being absolutely freezing! This was an outfit that I had kind of put together on a whim, but when it comes to grey and black, you can’t really go wrong pairing various shades like that together. I was wearing my REISS Scarlet Teddy Coat that I absolutely adore and wear constantly in the wintertime, because it’s so roomy and perfect for layering, but also really smart and classy. I layered it over a simple grey Topshop knit, and tucked that into my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Grey. I finished it off with my Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots in Black, that I got last year, and added in my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Bag in Grey. As much as I love the design of Stuart Weitzman boots, I find them pretty uncomfortable. Does anyone else? The stiff back of the heel tends to rub against my heel and cause some discomfort, and that disappoints me given the price of them, but I put up with it because they’re so pretty! Anyway, this outfit is more of a casual take on one that I wore previously (see it here). Instead of flat boots, I opted for heeled ones and a Chanel bag, so please do let me know which…

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…

Layers Of Pewter

The Winter nights are finally drawing to a close and Spring is starting to appear, but I have a few outfits left to share with you before I step into my warmer weather attire. This look here was shot a few weeks ago, back in early January and it’s one that I threw together on a whim as I wanted to wear my Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots in Anthracite again. I’ve been living in these boots, as you can probably tell! I adore them and can never get enough of how cool they look. As it warms up, I can’t wait to wear these with dresses and skirts for a different kind of look. Anyway, for this outfit, I styled the Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots with my Beyond Yoga Black Leggings and an older Oasis White Fluffy Jumper as the base. I then layered over my Topshop Long Grey Belted Coat and finally finished it off with my Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour in Grey. You’d be correct in thinking that I always choose this bag too, but in fairness, it’s the only grey bag with silver hardware that I own and it’s extremely versatile. I do think it’s good to wear your pieces numerous times though as you end up getting a lot of wear in the cost per wear ratio. This outfit is a little bit more on the masculine side, but I really do think the crystals on the boots help ease it away from that entirely. It’s a combination that I would gladly wear again. How are you all anyway? I feel like it’s been…

The Pink Corduroy Jacket

The Oversized Pink Corduroy Jacket Outfit I hope everyone is staying safe right now in Storm Dennis! It’s a bit crazy out there! Hopefully this one isn’t as damaging as Ciara that we had last week. Anyway, getting to my outfit, this is one that I wore a couple of months ago actually, back in December, just before Christmas. It wasn’t overly cold out, but layering was a must because it was a little chilly. As you know, blush pink tones are one of my favourites and I think they suit my skin tone really nicely, so I was wearing my Topshop Oversized Pink Corduroy Jacket, which I picked up about 4 months ago after falling in love with it. It fits really large, so it’s perfect for layering over my thick White Jumper from Zara, which keeps me extra warm. I also wore my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Grey, which I styled with my Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneakers and finished it off with a Charcoal Scarf, and my Topshop Blush Pink Bobble Hat. I’m really feeling casual looks like this a lot at the moment as they’re so comfortable and easy to wear. Plus, having oversized jackets and coats really allows me to layer up nicely to keep warm, while looking stylish, so it’s a trend I’m liking a lot actually. This is definitely a combination that I have worn numerous times and I’ve been wearing this Topshop Corduroy Jacket a lot, in a similar way to this, just switching up my jeans and shoes. Let me know what you think of it! Lorna xx. *This post contains…

Tan, Black & Snake Print

Hi everyone! I know it’s been 10 days since I posted, but I have been going through a lot lately and needed some quiet time. I’m back now with this blog post, showcasing an outfit that I wore a few weekends ago. It wasn’t too cold out, so it was easy to just layer my 525 white roll neck sweater with my Topshop Del Boy inspired coat, finished off with my L’AGENCE Margot skinny jeans and my Topshop snake print boots. I actually put this outfit together on a whim and I quite like how it turned out. I even added in a shell necklace from Kate Spade that two of my friends got me for Christmas. Anyway, I’m going to keep this blog post short as I wanted to make an update for you all as it had been a while. Let me know what you think of this outfit! Lorna xx.
