(Jeans – Exact, Jacket – Exact, T-Shirt – Exact, Bag – Similar, Wellies – Exact & Exact)
Rain, rain and more rain, is all it still keeps doing! I think this has been one of the craziest winters that I have ever experienced in my 25 years actually. It’s not really all that cold, which is very unusual for England too! Anyway, in my attempt to brighten up a rainy day, I went for a jewel tone colour scheme!
I wore my James Jeans Couture Skinny Jeans which I tucked into my Hunter Dark Ruby Gloss Short Wellies. I find these shorter wellies are more practical for wearing around town as they aren’t so big, plus I do adore the colour. I matched them with my H&M t-shirt which is a similar shade and then wore my French Connection Athena Faux Leather Biker Jacket in Black over the top. Just to add some more colour to the mix, I then wore my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Sycamore as I think yellow really livens the combination of burgundy and black up. I usually like to have a bright and colourful umbrella too, like the one in my banner, but I decided on a clear one for this outfit as the other colours wouldn’t really match too well!
On a different note, I have something very exciting to share with you next week that I can’t wait to say! I know you will love it too! If you follow me on Instagram though (@LornaRaindrops) then you might already have had a clue as to what it might be! Any guesses? What do you think of the outfit though, do you like it? How are you all managing to stay dry in the constant rain? Comment and let me know!
I like your outfit, it is practical and cute.
Thank you Rosely!
Love this outfit, very simple 2 color pallet but it hits a home run. I like the way maroon looks on you, it really makes your blonde hair pop! And what can i say about your wellies i havent said already? You look great in them Lorna, excited to see your black pair when you get them
Thanks Eric! I already took photos of the black pair actually, so you will be seeing those very soon!
Nice hunter boots!

You look awesome!! love your boots
Yay im so excited! Been wearing mine a lot lately, they go so well with so many outfits. Also i have some dress pics for ya, where would you like me to post them so i can get your opinion on them?
I don’t mind! It’s up to you where you feel comfortable!
I love your Hunters, are those the shorter versions? I’ve always been iffy about those but they look great on you! 🙂 The mustard bag is the perfect complement to that color too 🙂
Thanks! Yeah they are the short version. I was iffy too about them at first, but I really like them now as they look more young and sweet.
Love those Hunters! I’ve got the same color in the taller boot but now I wish I had the short ones – they look so cute on you!
Ha ha, that’s funny because I wanted the tall version!
aren’t hunter wellies the best?! theyre the only rain boot id ever wear.
Yep! I love them!
I want your umbrella XD is amazing!

Thank you lol!
I adore your boots and your bag!!!
Attractive look for rainy day.
Thank you Jynny!
Those Hunters are so adorable!! I feel your pain when it comes to this winter. Here in Portugal the weather has been crazy too. Rain every single day and a very annoying wind. Aaaaaah, hate it!!
Oh really in Portugal too? Isn’t it usually warm and sunny there?
It usually is. Last year we only had rain for like….15 days, the whole year.
But now it’s raining nonstop since the beginning of 2014. I guess I’ll have to get my own wellies. Hope I’ll find something similar to those you were using in these pictures.
That would be cool! They are so much fun to wear, you don’t have to worry about wet feet at all!
Ok Lorna i have 4 dresses here. Tell me what you think of each and which one your favorite is.
I thought those were going to be photos of you in them! I like the first 2!
Lol i wish, these are dresses im thinking of buying. I think the pink polo dress would go weill with my pink wellies and the black dress would be a great dancing dress
It would be! I think both would be great! Did you have a photo of your other dress you bought? On you?
What a cute lil’ umbrella!!
I havent taken one yet but i will sometime in the future, ive only worn it twice and the weather hasnt been very dress friendly right now
Yeah, I completely understand that lol.
I did however buy me a new rugby shirt! I love it!
That reminds me of polo!
The sport or the shirt?
The sport lol.
How amazing are these? I fell in love with them when they came out! http://www.hunter-boot.com/original-stripe/navy-lipstick-pink
Lol yes the shirt is a little bit like what polo players wear, however my experience with it we wore just regular polo shirts with numbers, would be really cute if i could wear a rugby during play! Those boots are super cute!! Sadly not in my size 🙁 was gonna make me another purchase. Oh well. Ill stick to my collection of 5 i guess ;D
They are amazing! I fell for them as soon as I saw them! Little bit expensive for me though 🙁
Let me buy them for you. Would love to treat you to a pair of wellies
Oh gosh, that’s very kind of you, but I couldn’t accept, I wouldn’t feel right doing so 🙂 Thank you though 🙂
No need to feel ashamed, i would feel incredibly honored if you would let me.
I couldn’t, but thank you!
Aw ok. But promise me youll keep me posted on your future welly collection. Your catching up to me! Proud of you!
Oh you will always see my new purchases!
Good im due for a shopping day as well. Was ready to drop some money on a pair of new wellies but like i said none were in my size for the ones i wanted.
It’s a shame those navy pink stripe ones are not your size!
Ugh i know i love the navy and pink color combo, looks amazing on stripes too. Would totally get a pink polo to go with them too!
Pink jeans would be cool!
Looking cool with your umbrella there!
Lol, thanks Adam!
