i get around





dress worn as shirt: new look
skirt: H&M
belt: primark
glasses: boohoo
rings: H&M, Asos, jwlry, forever 21
nails: leopard ala Gem, models own top turquoise, beths blue, wah x nailpen

LOOOOVE the shoulders on this shirt, I really love the little capped cropped sleeves. I love Chambray, especially in the summer. It has a real preppy quality to it which I really like. Plus its light and just nice to wear in general! I actually bought this skirt in *cough* 4 colours *cough* after seeing Kate wearing this little peachy number. Think it was £6.99 so it wasn't really like I was splurging, and I took the two Topshop similar skirts I'd bought for £50 back! Plus I'll wear them alot, and they are much cheaper than the American Apparel ones I wanted... Im justifying myself here!

Anyway, Tonight I'm going out (as of typing I am, plans my change! I'm indecisive today!). I have no idea what to wear as ll my going out clothes, all three dresses are far too "wintery"!  I must faux tan as I cannot let myself look as pale as my legs do in these photos. And because people ask all the time I use the cheapy St Moritz (mainly dark but sometimes the regular) mousse! Which I get from Bodycare for about £3 and use a Primark Mitt. Oh the glamour.

UK shipping on my small turquoise rings in my shop is free for the next week! So if you wanna grab one for just £4 go ahead! Alot of stuff is out of stock at the moment but I will be getting new items in & restocking loads of stuff soon!

  59. Have a wicked night out Lily! You're quite the party girl lately aren't you hehe :) Love your look here it's almost double-denim (and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible). Have you tried much colour blocking? Because this skirt would look ace with a bright t-shirt, maybe orange or turquoise? ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad Ps. Ombred my hair finally! Followed your youtube tips and I'm so happy with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. your hair looks really nice all down, rather than being clipped back! Love the almost double denim but not quite.

    I saw your River Island insider and I can't believe how nice your hair looks up, please wear it up more often! Well done for being featured :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  61. Another great outfit as always (I may have been stalking your blog quietly *cough*) love the blue hues and how it looks preppy but not overly so.
    Checked out your tumblr too, I think I may have found someone just as obsessed with Julian Casablancas as I :)
    Keep it up, please :)
