one-eighty




skirt: zara
top: topshop
cardigan: new look 
rings: jwlry and asos

Didnt post my usual Sunday night stuff last night as I stayed at my Dads house, First time I've missed it in a VERY long time! But I didnt have the internet or acess to a camera, so I took a weeks leave! It was also the anniversary of my best friends death this weekend so I spent alot of time with friends rather than on here.

Spent today writing lists of things I need to do this week as I'm so behind once again. I always plan things for the week ahead on a Monday, but Being ill last week really took it out of me, I lost 7lbs purely because all I did was sleep and lie in bed. However I've done my best today to undo that, I had TWO, yes two panninis for lunch. I ran a few errands today in town, picked up a package ton of new styles for my jewellery line, which shall be making it way online soon and did some university work. Our current project is based on commitments, I cant decide what to do mine on yet. I was going to base it around my blog but I cant work out how I'd translate that into imagery. Tempted to do it on wrestling, but who knows. Le sigh!

Today's outfit is just as generic and typical of me at the moment. Warm colours, high waisted skirt, cardigan and default hair style. One of my main criticisms here on the blog is that I always wear the same things, I'm just one of those people who finds a style they like and sticks to it really! Less effort as well as everything goes together! Pretty much all things I'm wearing today have been worn before on the blog. I'm tempted to do one of those 30 for 30 challenges like Jen did. However I really wouldn't know what to choose for those 30 days! Might give it a bit more thought and maybe do it! Could actually be a good thing to do as a commitment for my project!

  10. Don't worry about always wearing a similar style, the reason I love your blog is because of that style! It never looks the same twice xx

  11. Nice outfit! (Although it feels like I've seen it before.)

    It'd be nice to see what you could do with different colours, textures, etc :)

  12. Love the warm colours you have used!
    So sorry about your friend :(
    Experimenting with styles may be fun but sticking to the same style is great because it shows you that you really do have a certain personal style, so no need to worry!

  14. Planning out your week is a good move! You know what you need to do and when.
    Also, I'm planning on buying some of your rings and the blue tooth necklace on your shop, but I wanted to make a suggestion. Some of your rings are adjustable, but there aren't any photos to show what the adjustable bit looks like. Maybe you could include a photo of the back of one of the rings if there's 6 different styles so people can judge whether it will stay well on their fingers and so on. It would help me come to a better decision as to which ones I will get.

  17. Love your outfit as always, the warm colours in this are gorgeous! I think finding a style you love and sticking to it is something to be proud of, why change it if it isn't broken? I really love these Zara high waisted skirts too :) x x

  20. your outfit is amazing! i love it :D

  21. Hope you're feeling much better now :) Love this outfit and I really like how you wear the same things more than once - it's far more realistic than bloggers who seem to have a totally different outfit everyday and never seem to wear the same thing twice. x

  22. Nothing wrong with having a style and sticking to it, especially when its as good as yours x

  27. cute cardigan! I can never seem to find the perfect one >.<
    hope you feel better, I know it sucks... there seems to be some kind of bug going around here

  28. Definitely do the 30 for 30! It's HARD but really helps you 'understand' your wardrobe, as douchey as that sounds.

    Love today's outfit. How do you take such ace indoor shots? I am despairing over mine! xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love your hair. The outfit is wonderful, especially the blouse.

  30. I can't believe someone would criticise you for wearing the same things! I like the fact that you have a style and mix & match :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't think that should be a criticism at all. If anything, you have your own style that you know works. Jeezz!
    Love the colours here, and I hope you had a nice week away from the blog.
    Hope you were ok over the weekend,

  35. Love that top! I think the 30 for 30 challenge sounds good, would definitely be interesting to see how you make it work. Would be good for stocking up on some versatile pieces xx

  36. glad you're feeling better Lily. Also, can't wait for payday so I can spend some mahonies in your shop, hello rings.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm actually wearing kind of the same thing everyday, too, but since I started blogging I try to wear different outfits more often. It kind of inspires me to test out my borders and makes me more creative.

  47. I love your jewlery store and blog! I was wondering though, do you design the jewlery and then it gets shipped to you to be sold? I've been wanting to open one like yours, but I have no idea how! Thanks!

  49. As basic as the outfit may seem, it looks so classy as well as comfortable. I love neutral/warm/earth tones, so it's just perfect to me!

    So sad to hear about the anniversary :( Hope it wasn't too sad or stressful of a time.

  58. Love this outfit, especially the coral colours. I always feel like I wear the same things over and over, but unfortunately being a student limits my clothes allowance!

    Glad you're feeling better! Now you have to make up for all the food you missed out on by eating tonnes of chocolate.

  62. Love the colours here, and love the palettes at the bottom. Aaand I've only just realised you have your lip pierced - cool!

    Not sure if you've ever done one, but would be v interested in a tutorial on how you clip your hair up like that as I really rather like it.
