outfit picks of the year


my top 12, I cba to look for each individual post, so if you want to see where thing are from check the tags!

Thought seeing as the year is coming to a end, I'd go through all my old outfit posts and pick my favourites from the bunch. According to my photo folder I've done 92 outfits, Although I cannot confirm how many I've actually done because I can never remember if I've uploaded them all, and I often forget to tag them on my blog! My style has changed this year. I wouldn't say its changed drastically, its just different. I still wear the same types of clothes: oversized tops, pretty dresses, body con skirts, chunky layers and not wearing trousers. I've pretty much spent the year experimenting with new things, specifically colour. This is also the first ever year that I've worn my bare legs out side the house, I even wore a bikini for the first time, and posted a photo of it online! This is partly down to weightloss, but also down to some inner confidence in my own body I'd gained. Probably through this blog to be honest.

I'm not into "fashion" really, I always say to people "I just like clothes". I like to wear pretty things because they look nice, or I like the way they feel, or the colour of something or the pattern of something. I don't take too much notice of the catwalks or what trends  we are told are going to be the seasons must haves. I observe them, consider them, But I never really think OH THIS S/S I MUST DRESS SUCH AND SUCH A WAY! I have a little idea in my head where I'd like my style to go. Obviously depends on whats in the shops though, and how I can interpret them into my ideal "look". That is my favourite thing about being a "highstreet" shopper. Its fast paced, and accessible. Most stores are doing great at the moment: changing their style and becoming better at interpreting key trends on a budget. Primark has definitely been my favourite shop of the year. Although New Look and River Island have pleasantly surprised me too.

Anyway, I hope that you all continue to enjoy my outfits, and give me an excuse to justify buying new clothes all the time! Although knowing me I'd still be buying a truckload of clothes, regardless of if I showed them online or not!

Whats your favourite outfit of mine? I'd love to know!

  3. I love your style and the pieces you pick for your wardrobe :) I think my favorite would have to be the first one in the second row, I LOVE white dresses (but they look horrible on me!) And I am exactly like you! I'm not into fashion, but I love clothes. I don't really know the "trends" and stuff, I just wear what I like. Anyways, Happy New Year to you! :)

  10. Lovely outfits, I totally agree with you about liking clothes rather than fashion.
    I couldn't care less what celebrities are wearing, what outfits are on the catwalk etc. Surely fashion should be about expressing your own individuality and wearing clothes because you like them not because everyone else is!

  11. I really love your ombre hair, I wish I could do that but I don't think it would look right on red hair. Maybe if I did it darker at the bottom or something? I love your heart cardigan and the blue skirt/green cardi combo.
    Happy new year!

  15. I loved the heart top/bodycon skirt look, was for sure one of your looks of the year.
    You've really inspired my style this year because like you in 2009 i was all about the black and this year i embraced colour.
    I always look forward to reading you outfit posts(i just don't come for the pictures) your blog should win some blog of the year award or something :) xxx

  18. Hiya I love your red h&m skirt with the hearts :) When I bought it I decided to google it to see what I could wear it with and that's how I found your blog :) I actually wore it on my first date with my boyfriend so it holds a lot of good memories for me!

    Happy new year!

    ReplyDelete
  19. even though i love all of your outfits, my favourite is the 8th one. you hair look effortless, makeup is great, the quality of the picture is good but of course the outfit is colourful but still suttle, i will defiantly try an outfit similar in the spring/summer :) xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really love the grey jumper and pink skirt, so cute! Are those glasses you have in the 3rd picture chanel or a dupe? Let me know where you got them if they are!

    ReplyDelete
  21. i absolute love the 4th outfit, the one with the white dress. awh, bliss! :P

  34. My favorite outfits of yours are when you are wearing peter pan collar tops or simple blouses. But of course you look so pretty in all of the posts :)

    I hope you do keep on having excuses to buy new clothes! :) Have a wonderful new year.

    much love.

  35. I'm a huge fan of your style, Lily and I really do love all your outfit posts.
    Although I think your spring and summer looks were all great, I think you really came into your own this AW and I especially loved the last picture. I think you really know how to work tunics, and they all look stunning.
    Also the middle pic, third row down I love. i know tucked in isnt your usual style but I think it looks great on you!
    All the best in the new year

  37. I really love how your style has evolved, I feel you've stayed true to yourself but as you said experimented a bit more and such. numbers 7, 8 and 9 are by far my fave's. I also love your white dress. So pretty

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have loved your blog this year Lily, it has been so fun to watch your style change. I would have to say my favourite outfit is the 9th, the mixture of earthy colours is amazing. Happy New Year to you :)

  40. I most say, my favorite of all is the number 4 on the left (white dress and leather jacket) you look adorable on it <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. happy new year to you:)! im much like you and would rather stick to what i like wearing and what suits me. its nice to take a little bit of inspiration from what others are wearing but not be tied down by that. i love the outfit where you're wearing the peter pan dress (your hair looks lovely too) xx

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am a lot like you on style. I don't go to fashion shows or follow top fashions, I just find and wear what I like and what is comfortable for me. Great post!

  43. I always loved the outfit which is pictured first in the 2nd row. I loved the combination of the white dress and leather jacket. This collage just goes to show how diverse your style is meez thinks :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I can't decide between 1,4,5 and 8. They are definitely the best! I love your hat in pic 1 and your lovely leather jacket!

    I really enjoyed your blog this year! It's become my favourite I think!

  45. I really love all your outfits! (-:
    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love all the outfits you posted but I think my fave was the H&M striped top and tights? I went out and bought the top not long after, I guess I use blogs to pick the creme of the high street as I can get so stressed out shopping! I can definitely see a shift in your colour palette later in the year, but really like the white dress and leather jacket, such a cool mix of tough and girly!

    Happy New Year

  47. All your outfits are lovely! I can't wait to see what you show us this year :D x

  48. hi lilly happy new year!!!

    i was wondering if u could add a search button to the layout (maybe im just blind and cant find it), because i was looking for anything labled Primark but I can't see it under the tags and I cant search for it.

    thanks www.lawyerwanna.be

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love every outfit you've posted online, you always look so effortless and amazing! I am so jealous of your clothes. I defiantly think your style has changed not drastically but you can tell from the photos!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love 4 and 5, I think because that's how I'd dress, and I love your leather jacket :) Happy New Year. xx

    ReplyDelete
  51. Good post :) I really love the outfit where you're wearing the green cardigan, heart print vest and blue skirt, I've always thought that was such a nice outfit :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. i think you have lovely clothes ^^

    ReplyDelete
  53. I like picture 4, looks very girly and sensitive :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love the outfit with the floaty white dress and leather jacket...I've always thought that was a good combination, to have a really feminine dress and tough jacket. I really like your definition of fashion is "I just like clothes." Personally, I love looking at the runways and analyzing trends, but I don't incorporate anything that doesn't fit my own style or just doesn't feel natural to me. I just dress in what I like and don't try to have a certain look, although I do tend to gravitate towards certain pieces!

    Happy New Year!

  55. can you please answer back to this?:
    i have looked at the "asos.com" website, and i really like it. But I need more websites, tried to find some good ones, but cant find one that is close to your style, because that is my style too, love everything you weare basically, so please help me? x

    ReplyDelete
  56. ALL of those outfits look amazing Lily but I think my favourite is definitely 4, it's just really fresh and simple.

    It's been a pleasure reading your blog this past year and you've inspired me to try new things (and spend more money!!) I hope that 2011 gives me the confidence to go bare-legged and *shock horror* wear a bikini out, just like 2010 did for you!
    Have a fantastic year :)

  57. First, I love your blog. You'll find yourself in the "Favorites" section of my blog roll :) I think my favorites would have to be the outfit with the heart cardi and the one right next door with the heart tank and navy skirt. Can't wait to see what you have in store for the new year!

  61. Wow, that's a ridiculously tough decision picking a favourite.. I think it would have to be the Wednesday Addams look though because that dress is such a wonderful shape and you're wearing those gorgeous rosary beads!

  75. It's a toughy but I think my favourite outfit of yours is when you wore the green peter pan collar tunic from topshop, with the burgundy cardigan the beautiful combination of the autumnal colours was delicious.

    I went out and bought the dress myself but it doesn't look as nice on me at all!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh HAI pretty outfits...

    My favourite?? Hmmm I like that one, that one, that one, that one and that one... Ohh and that one! Ahh I can't pick just one. Although one time, slightly stalkerish of me I know (that's how I roll) I saved a pic of the block striped jumper you had from Primark. Think you wore it with black leather look shorts, and showed the shop assistant the pic to ask if they still had it in stock.

    Oh Em Gee! I had lyke a piccy of u on my fne. Hot gyal. Bumting <3

    Haha. So I guess that one must be my Lily-Fave! :)

  81. My favourite is the one of you in the green cardigan. Its so simple, yet your overall style and attitude shines through, making it cooler and chicer. Just proving the phrase "It's not what you wear but how you wear it" correct.

  90. i think my favourite outfit would have to be the rust topshop tunic with the aubergine(?) colour cardigan...i was after that tunic myself but it was so short on me because i'm fairly tall. i wish they had brought out a longer dress version of it! :) the white dress & leather jacket outfit is also lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  91. 4th one is my favourite (first one on the second row)

    ReplyDelete
  92. aaah my favourite outfit has to be to white dress and leather jacket! but i was just scrolling through (because i thought i remembered that both the dress and jacket were from primark, and was going to have a little "OMDZ WHAT AMAZING FINDZZZ" thing) but i actually have many many favourites, and it would probably be creepy to list them all

    looking forward to seeing lots more lovely outfit posts in 2011 :)
