The Last Summer Post With Roman Originals

What’s happened to our weather? It was still hot this time last year! I’m featuring my last summer post with Roman Originals.

Hi Everyone. Welcome to a new week. A wet and windy one at that! I shot the photos for this Roman Originals outfit less than two weeks ago and the weather was boiling hot and gorgeous. Summer has come to an abrupt halt and I think it’s time to do that wardrobe swap for more suitable attire.

These photos were taken on Southend Seafront. Out with the daughter for a stroll with the Grandchildren. Look how beautiful the weather was!

This is a more casual outfit compared to that gorgeous maxi dress that I wore for the last Roman Originals shoot. If you missed it, take a look at my post for my favorite dress of the summer here

I wanted to show you that Roman Originals have some fantastic separates that are wearable for day to day wear and not a shop to visit just for dressing up.

These three-quarter trousers will be great with knee high boots

I don’t normally wear cropped trousers because my legs are short, but these 3/4 trousers caught my eye. Plenty of stretch, like cotton jeggings just a little shorter. I will wear these with my knee length boots in the colder months. They feel really good on and they really hug you in nicely. They are available in lots of other colors here and at only £20.00 I’m tempted to get the Navy and Stone.

I paired the outfit with my Orange wedge sandals to contrast with the splash of Orange in the floaty top, my straw bag full of stuff to keep the kids amused. I forget how much stuff you need to have with you for a couple of hours out with the kids!

The asymmetrical top can also be tied and worn folded over as a shorter top for a different look. It’s available here and if you don’t like all your arms on show I just spotted this one available, which I think I prefer! This one that I’m wearing is like a double layer of chiffon. I do love a floaty top!

I was dubious about wearing a long top with shorter trousers but I think they paired well together.

Don’t forget there’s a 10% discount for your first order!

I don’t want summer to end! Which season do you prefer? For me, it’s longer days and the sun, although I do think Autumn/Winter dressing is more glamorous, especially around the Christmas season.

Don’t forget, as I said in the last post for Roman Originals, there is a code for 10% off for reader orders. Take a look at their gorgeous new collection here  Enter the code FIRST10 at the checkout for your 10% off.

That’s it from me, I will be showing some fantastic new makeup and sharing some application tips on Wednesday, so do pop by for that.

    What a great look! Love the beautiful top and how it looks with these cropped jeans and orange sandals. I rarely wear cropped jeans either since I am also a shorty, but these look great on you. Fab idea about wearing them with tall boots.

    I love summer. I can’t deny that. I’m living in the tropical island, so I can’t complain that I don’t have enough hot weather. But I really miss other seasons sometimes. It’s nice to have change. o)

    I have to disagree that cropped trousers don’t suit you. I think they look fab particularly with the longer top. Hope you did treat yourself to the other colour options?! My favourite season for dressing is just around the corner. Summer clothes and I are not a happy combo. #TweensTeensBeyond

    I really like the print of the top! Good Styling…it looks great!

      Thank you Laura. It will be handy to wear under a jacket or cardigan I think xx

  12. September 12, 2017 / 6:29 pm

    That looks lovely Laurie and not a bad day in Southend either! #tweensteensbeyond

      Thanks you Jess. This top could be worn with quite a few colours. I have some baby blue trousers and the top will go well with those xx

    This look is gorgeous on you. So flowy, comfortable and stylish. Makes me wish it was a bit warmer in London. #DreamTeam

    This suits you so well Laurie, hard to think of Summer when the weather today has been so awful! Looking forward to seeing some Autumn styles on the blogs soon. Jacqui

    You look so lovely. That top is very cute and I love the way you paired it with the crop pants and orange wedges. A perfect outfit for a beautiful summer day. I love summer, but I think my favorite season is fall. I just don’t like that the days are getting shorter! – Amy

      September 12, 2017 / 6:41 am

      Me neither Amy. The cold and wet doesn’t bother me at all, but those short days are horrible xx

  20. September 11, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    Summer has come to an abrupt halt here too! Normally, I only do my seasonal swap in the first week of October, but I guess I’ll need my Autumn stuff earlier this year! That said, I love the three quarter trousers, and the grey colour goes very well with yours orange wedge sandals. xxx

    Looking lovely, Laurie. Good choice of to. I’m becoming quite a fan of
    Roman Originals. And yes, it’s hard to believe we were dressing like
    That just a couple of weeks ago. I’m missing my swimming 😢. X.

    I love the pattern on your top! I’m a summer girl, because I love the long days and flirty dresses. But I’m always happy to be done with the sweaty heat!

      Thank you Roxanne. We don’t get that heat too much here in the UK! I wished we did! xx

  26. September 11, 2017 / 2:33 pm

    It seemed to get chillier overnight here too! I prefer Fall fashion, but I am already missing the longer days of Summer!
