pause and repeat





top: forever 21
coat: new look
skirt: H&M
scarf: forever 21
ring: made by vipxo

Photo versions of that outfit I posted the other day! Contrary to popular belief I do wear clothes more than once, I just dont tend to post the same outfits on here. Surely if it was me wearing the same thing over and over you'd totally click off? Am I right? Not much to say about the outfit as I already posted it as a video, I love the way camel and the burgandy look together! Its one of my favourite scarf/coat combination at the moment!

You've probably seen these scrabble rings doing the rounds on the blogs recently, and Im not one to jump on the bandwagon, but when My favourite person in the blogasphere, Victoria emailed me asking id I wanted one! Of course I accepted. My mum got me one last Christmas actually from Rock N Rose (for twice the price too!) and Jared (my brother) stepped on it and broke it ): However I love my new one and You can buy them off her directly on her blog, They only cost £4!

In Lily news today,  I went to one of my favourite art shops in town, and I could have literally bought the whole shop. it sells the most amazing art books and prints, everything from totes to tea towels, to the only place in town that stocks decent art magazines! I had a mini heart attack when I found out they reclocated, and had to rack my brains to try and work out where the new shop was! I'm such a Mike Perry fangirl, and if I could own every piece of art hes ever done would make my life! I also attempted a Brigitte Bardot stylee hairdo, which Im hoping to wear out tomorrow! I also opened my formspring for questions again for a bit, I probably will shut it off again soon though, I get so many questions it does get hard to answer them all! Im also about to apply fake tan for the first time, Mitts at the ready!

  8. Ooh I love that burgundy colour. Love how scarfs can really lift an outfit. Not only do they give us the gift of warmth but they also look freakin sweet!

    The bardot hair is fabby! I've been trying to do that for ages but I end up with a ridiculous birds nest type thing. Which few find attractive. Is there a special method?

  18. LOVE your hair in these pics, it looks fab! I don't actually mind seeing the same/similar outfits more than once on blogs, but I know what you mean as I often wear the same stuff repeatedly and I can't write something new about an outfit if I've already posted exactly the same one. I prefer blogs by people who wear high street/vintage/eBay finds though - ie people who don't have endless £££ - and so I expect to see items I've seen before now and again xx

  19. It'd be cool to see the same sort of outfit just styled up differently :)
    I love Mike Perry's work too ahh so good.

    Cute coloured scarf :)

  25. I love scrabble rings. My boyfriend got me one, then promptly stood on it (twice, just to make sure I think) so I now have a scrabble piece in my jewellery box :) x

    ReplyDelete
  26. No wonder you love the camel/burgundy combination -- my first thought about this outfit was how lovely they look together :) Also I love those comfy Tshirts, unfortunately not confident enough to wear'em because I think they'd make me even bigger :/

    ReplyDelete
  27. love the scarf and your coat. love ur hair, i'm totally in love with your blog! <3

    ReplyDelete
  28. The coolest ring and I'm in love with the burgundy and camel, will definitely give it a try...they look like they were made to be together :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oooh love the top! I was going to buy one like this but in the reverse colours from Topshop.

    What's the shop it sounds amazing!

    I freaking love your blog. I keep hoping I'll bump into you somewhere around Ludlow! (without seeming like a stalker!!).

    Love Chloe... x

  30. just to let you know- your coat does have pockets cos i remember your post a while ago wondering. go right in the corner and poke your finger down, there's a tiny gap of pocket-material. cut carefully across and then you can just pull the material apart! xo

  31. Primark have a similar scarf but it has bits of glitter in it and stuff which I just don't like so I may have to hunt this one down instead! Is it really warm? I think reds and oranges will look nice with my blue coat! Also have been umm-ing and ahh-ing for ages over getting one of those rings, I spend so much on jewellery without thinking it's unreal! xx

    ReplyDelete
  32. Also I don't blame you about the Formspring thing, what a load of rubbish! I deleted mine a couple of months ago because I was sick of answering the same stuff over and over or having to defend myself all the time! Too many keyboard warriors in this world - if they can't say anything nice then it's better that they don't say anything at all!

  33. Love all the colours in this. Really autumn-y and that scarf is lovely, I might have to track that down!

  40. Hi, LOVE the scarf and jacket, the colours work so well. Just wanted to ask a question.

    Do you think forever21 runs true to size? I was going to buy a pea coat. i'd probably buy a 14 but I know from A&F that american companies are less generous in the cutting. Esp. in the arms. Thanks so much.

  41. Just found your blog! Really love your style :)

  42. I really like this outfit: it's simple, but so cute. Looove the camel and burgundy!

    Ah scrabble rings! I've got a scrabble necklace somewhere... we have a botique that makes them cheap, but don't do rings :(

    You have gorgeous eyes and hair. Jealous.

  45. I absolutely love the red(burgendy)-camel combination, it's one of my favourite color-combinations at the moment!

    Haven't seen the scrabble rings before (feel like I've lived under a rock..) but they're sooo cute..!!

    Have a really nice sunday tomorrow!

    Love, Daphne

  49. Ohhh :( I was about asking u a question on formspring, I wasnt fast enough! I ask u it here: I like that ring so much, and taking a look at vipxo I fell in love with the X and O put together! Do u think I can wear them one near the other, or they r too big? Hope u will understand my bag english :P

    BTW I love this look! Dark red and camel together r perfect! And ur brigitte bardot hair was perfect ;) trust me!

  51. hello lily :)

    I've been looking for a scarf in that colour for ages but cant find one so I decided to give in and pay the bloody 6€ shipping cost to Germany and order one from forever21.

    Before I do that, though, I wanted to double check if this one https://www.forever21.com/EU/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=acc_scarf_gloves&ProductID=1078599194 is really the one you're wearing in the pic?? the one on the website looks so much more purple??

    I would really really appreciate it if you would get back to me :)

    dankeschön :)
