so kiss me






top: primark
cardigan: yayer
skirt: new look
belt: primark
necklace: zara taylor
rings: BHS
watch: swatch

Wassup homies*~ Big love to Yayer for sending me this lush cardigan! Its a lovely colour and such a lovely casual comfy fit. Id describe the colour as tobacco. I'm loving all the colour buzz words floating around at the moment. Mustard, Peacock, Azure, Rust, Chartreuse, Papaya & Cocoa! Added another black body con skirt to the collection and bought a New Look one! I wear them all the time (as if you haven't noticed!) and have 2 H&M ones so I thought I might as well get another just incase! I cant remember if I've talked about my watch, but its a simple Swatch Original. I dont like fancy smancy massive chunky gold/silver watches (I think they are uber tacky! sozz!) so my Mum got me this one for Christmas. I like it but the ticking drives me mad!

You'd probs never guess the extremely awful lighting I had to take these photos in. God bless a sort of knowledge of a flashgun and some savvy editing thanks to shooting in RAW. My step brothers here and hes invaded my normal photo taking place hence why I've not done so many outfits recently. Who knows when hes going but I literally cannot wait. I WANT MY PHOTO ROOM BACK DAMMIT. Surprisingly my hair is actually the colour it is IRL! Anyway, Im back off to do some more university work. Determined to finish laying out this Colour Theory book by the end of the day so I can start thinking about how to make it! Typefaces are killing my brain at the moment!

  19. Haha you can never have enough basic black body con skirts, they're perect to wear with tops that aren't quite long enough to cover your bum! You look lovely, i'm so jealous of your hair<33

    ReplyDelete
  20. Really cute, simple outfit. I love the similar colours of the top/cardi/belt. It makes my eyes happy! The top looks interesting - does it have ruffly bits down the front?
    I have a swatch watch too and the ticking is SO loud, I can't even have it in my room at night!

  23. Cute cardigan, the colour is lush! Body con skirts are wonderful, I bought a faux leather one todat from H&M and also saw a great looking striped one, plus they are mega cheap!! I had a little vintage looking watch from Urban Outfitters but the strap broke when I was away =(

  24. like your cardigan and your belt! unfortunately there are only three primarks in germany and they are just too far away from where i live :( oh and your hair is sooo beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  25. lovely outfit as always lily! Your hair really is beautiful, even if you don't like it! Mine used to be naturally ombre until I cut it (sad face, miss my hair!), wish it was as long as yours still! I love the way you clip up the sides/fringe/bangs/whatever you call them, its so lovely!:)
    That cardigan is also a lovely colour, as is the top:) wish I could pull off a bodycon skirt, I have one that I never wear! Oh and that necklace is so cool!
    Sorry if this is all babble!
    love your blog:)

  40. Wish I could pull off orange-based colours as well as you do. Make me look a bit peaky :S I've got a red Swatch watch too, and you're right, the ticking is mentally loud! I always feel like telling it to ssshh in lectures!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Who would have thought BHS would sell such nice rings! Yayer do some lovely stuff too. :)

  43. You should tell your step brother you have important photos to take. You must be good with cameras cause the lighting looks good.

  57. Lovely rusty cardigan, so lucky to have it free :) You look like you're meditating in the second photo, it made me smile
    It would be mine

    ReplyDelete
  58. I also have a Swatch watch, like yours but all blue and the ticking drives me crazy too! I have to keep it in a drawer when I'm not using it because I can't even sleep or study with it next to me. They're comfortable and nice, but Swatch should try to make them more noiseless.

    Btw nice outfit, like always!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love body con skirts also and seem to live in them or black highwaisted shorts! so comfy and still look stylish! loving the cardigan also! http://pets34fashion.blogspot.com/2011/01/hard-focus.html

  82. i like your style!
    amazing combination :-)

  83. I love my Swatch original, I bought it at Amsterdam airport in 2008, & it was only £30. The best thing is it's so simple, it's never going to go out of fashion. But I agree with you, the tick is SO LOUD. The battery in it hasn't run out since I bought it though so that's pretty good going!

    ReplyDelete
  84. i love mustard too! that watch is really nice, i want a nice simple watch, got my eye on these http://www.johnlewis.com/163304/Style.aspx bit too expensive though! haha.

  85. The last photo is amazing! Beautiful outfit! You're soo pretty!

  86. this might sound like a weird question, but where do you get your tights from? i can't find any non shiny thick black tights on the high street and it's driving me insane!
