the guys were dressed the same






skirt: zara
top: topshop
cardigan: new look
ring: asos
belt: primark

Sick of me in this skirt yet? No? GOOD! Ah I just simply love it. Promise I've washed it though! I have worn it an awful lot since I bought it. I wish I'd bought another one on reflection but Zoe linked me to this one on Asos on Twitter and I knew I had to get my mitts on it. I'm just obsessed with high wasited belted skirts! I seem to be doing blue and black looks alot recently, even though I'm not really much of a fan of blue and black, always thought it was a bit of a fashion no no. However I think with the browny rusty coloured cardigan it looks quite nice. If you haven't noticed, I'm quite into colours at the moment and how different colours go together. So its fun trying to find colours that unexpectedly work! I think thats the graphic designer in me!

Todays video is a little on the crappy side, Its been so dark and dreary today the lighting was just crap! But you get the idea! The bit at the end is probably as close as a HOW TO DO LLYMLRS HAIR as it gets (Although I do have a YT video on how I do my hair but its long forgotten!). As that is literally all I do to my hair. No products, although I would backcomb a tiny bit at the sides,  Fluff it up a bit, swoosh it about, jujj it up and the volia, it might look good, it might not! I have actually Ombre'd it again so its alot blonder than it was! Just needs a bit of toner or something to take some of the brassyness out!

As for today, I haven't done much. I didnt sleep well last night, so I woke up a bit late, Had a free Starbucks in the morning, Went to university, Handed my dissertation in and came home! Now I'm going to have a nap, and hopefully it will refresh me a bit! I then plan to watch Man vs. Food, then Glee and then the new episode of Shameless. OHH IM LIVING THE HIGHLIFE!

  6. I think the skirt looks good on you, I'm probably to big for it (not that I'm fat, but yeah... you know)

    and I love love love the colour combination. The blue and brown go well together and for the whole blue black no no no thing... I have the same but with black and brown.

    But this outfit breaks all the rules I guess, cause I like it.

    What a longggggg comment, I'm sorry. On my own blog I never know what to write lol

  7. i love the technical description of how to get hair ala lily ;) "jujj"

    the highlight of my night is watching shameless, how very rock star of me. it's not as good as it used to be though, everyone's not as 'grotty' if you know what i meanz init. and i miss kev and veronica, and lip *sigh*

    anyway, i digress, looking divine miss jujj ;)

    love, emma xx

  11. i love your outfit, especially the cardigan! and i finally got this adorable cross ring, too :O)

  12. i actually love blue and black together!
    always hated it in magazines or online that were like 'OMG DON'T WEAR BLUE'N'BLACK FASHION FAUX PAS' but i thought why?
    i like navy and black, but only with a tan belt around the waist just to break up the pallette.

    wish i could have got my paws on this skirt! must have got in to late

    Glee will actually be the higlight of day today

    ReplyDelete
  19. That cardi is schweeeet, and I don't see black and blue as a fashion no-no anymore - can look so good sometimes.

  26. I love love love the cardigan! I've seen it so many times in my local New Look but since I've stopped working there I can't bear to part with the money knowing I could have used my discount if it had came out earlier! :( I also love the skirt, I think it really suits you! :) I can't wait for Glee tonight either, finally something to brighten up my dull Mondays again :) xx

  44. Hi , I'm a portuguese girl and I discover your blog a few days ago. So I have started reading that, because I think the image is importante but isn't everything. What the blogger have to say gives life and personnality to the blog.
    And I congratulate you for the dedication on describing your day or your thoughts.
    Your clothes are very funny and original , mostly because I'm not accustomed seeing that in portugal , so is the blog where I find combinations I've never seen. I simply adore.
    I don't have a blog , but if you want to answer me you can just use my e-mail , anadias_12@hotmail.com.
    Sorry for the mistakes but my english isn't the best.

  45. Well Lily, your obsession with colours is certainly going well because these work perfectly together! I'm still loving this season's colours even if it is getting quite late on and we're heading into spring!

  52. The blue and the caramel really are a match made in heaven, such a beautiful combination.

    I'm the same with black skirts, I have the same one as you but without the scallop details, a leather one and a polka dot one. I have my eye on one from american apparel too, just need to save for it!

  59. i really like this cardi too (I know everyone seems to have said that) i'm wondering if it is recent and therefore likely to be still in store?!!
    I like the skirt, but personally I'm totally the wrong shape for high-waisted skirts..

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've seen so many girls wearing and blogging about this cardigan since you got it. Bit lame, but you rock it so good!

    I think this colour blue and black look lovely together, so don't worry, you look gorgeous :)

  74. Hey Lily with just 2 'L's,
    I really like this outfit and I pretty much like the way you do your outfit videos. You look gorgeous and happy in them :) Hahaha blabla enough compliments, I don't wanna sound like an extremely creepy stalker or something.
    I don't sleep well at the moment, too, but I'm not into all this moon-esoteric-horoscope-sleeping-stuff, so I have no idea why. Hope you're getting better.
