little red






skirt: zara
shirt: primark
belt: primark
rings: topshop, market stall, asos, jwlry (small turquoise number 3)

I wore this Sunday but photographed it ready for the week seeing as I knew I'd be majorly busy towards the end of the week! I worked 12-8 today which was incredibly dull, However it was alright because I ended up spotting loads of things I wanted to buy! I work in New Look (coz people always ask!), I proper "hauled" my little heart out, considering I dont actually remember what the last item I bought was before today. I didnt even go payday crazy this month!

Look gurlz I'm wearing muh hurr different fuh a change. Nah my hair had just randomly decided to look nice for once so I left it like this. I personally really dislike my hair and despite what it looks like in photos its really crappy, Not fishing for compliments or wanting people to worship my coiffure. I just don't like it, Honestly if my hair would stay sleek, straight and unmatted I might favor it more. But it matts and knots so easily, I brush all my matted bits of hair out every single week, as well as brush my hair everyday, and use deep conditioner once a week. I dont even backcomb it anymore because its that bad! My hair dresser friend said she has no idea why my hair does it, it just does?

I wear my hair in the clipped back style most of the time because its just easy and takes 0 effort to look good, where as as soon as I walked out the door without it clipped back it looked terrible! I know one particular commenter dislikes my default hairstyle alot, but hands up, who wears their hair the same most days purely because they know it would stay how they want it!?

Photographing new rings for the shop tomorrow, I have a little deal planned which is 5 rings for £10 and I cant wait to put it up in the shop!

  8. I'm going to dip dye my hair this week! Have you intentionally done yours, or is it naturally lighter at the ends? xo

    ReplyDelete
  9. Really like your hair like this AND the other way, who cares what some random has to say? Wear it however you want?? Madness!

    And I also really love that shirt, I always get so exasperated shopping in Primark cos other people manage to find gems like this and I never seem to... Gonna make a definite effort to scope this one out

  12. I know you get it all the time, and you don't want to hear it but i really love your hair, it's exactly how i want mine to be if it would actually grow.

  14. I love this look, I really love the skirt especially!
    I always have my hair in the same style, there's not much I can do with it that doesn't take a lot of effort! I just blowdry it and leave it as it is!
    Looking forward to seeing the new rings!

  15. I think I have about 10 items of clothing this colour, and I still keep buying more. Such a gorgeous colour :) xo.

  16. great outfit!

    and i am the same with my hair, always wear the same style day in day out, unless i'm having a reallyyyyy bad hair day at which point i give in to plaits or a bun. lol

    (p.s running a giveaway on my blog atm, all UK entires welcome!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. my hairs pretty much the same. nice and soft once you manage to get a brush through it (after washing is hell), then after a couple of hours throughout the day, it's flicky, knotty and somehow matted underneath, it completely baffles me. I heard those tangle teezers are good though

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gosh Primark are totally upping their game, that blouse is perfect. Wish my hair would ever look like that naturally haha, mine always likes to take the shape of my pillows - damn uuuu memory foam >:( xo

    ReplyDelete
  19. I hate my hair too :( It's always messy, and I have to wash it every two days because otherwise it gets all greasy and stuff, boohoo. Anyhow, you do look great in that outfit. i really like the reddish blouse :)

    Love,
    Shanah.

  20. Super lovely outfit!! You're so cute! ;)

  21. I always wear my hair the same as I have no imagination - and mostly run out of time in the morning!! ha ha - wish i had a default hair do that looked as cool as your one - need quick hair do ideas???!!

  22. My hair gets matted all of the time and always in the exact same spot! It's so annoying and painful to brush out. Regardless, your hair always looks pretty! And lovely outfit, I love the color of the shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  23. love this shirt & your hair always looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your hair looks great in this post!
    My hair used to go all matty and unruly too when it was long, it sucked. Have you tried V05 Hot Oil tubes to get it looking a bit sleeker? It's still the only thing that'll get my hair looking shiny! Just be sure to wrap your hair in a towel or clingfilm or something after you put it on otherwise it goes all cold and crap.
    Can't wait to see what else is coming to the shop!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I specially love the last picture, you and your hair looks gorgeoooous

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey, you may have been recommended this before but either way... My hair used to be exactly the same as yours with regards to getting tangled/matted really easily, no matter how much conditioner you put on! My hairdresser recommended I got a Tangle Teazer brush. I was a bit put off by the price as mine was £10, but once I used it I was like omg. It was so much easier than like spending hours trying to get my knots out, and far less painful!

    I got mine from my local Sally, not sure where else they stock them, but you can check out http://www.tangleteezer.com/order-now/

    Either way love your outfit as always! Keep them coming :)

  27. My hair is exactly the same, its stays straight constantly, but takes the form of a straw like material, whilst remaining greasy every day after washing. Eurghhhhh. On another note, your shirt is fantastic!

  45. Cute outfit Lily - staple black skirt which I have always adored.

    I actually love your default hair style, it suits you, more than this, I think. Its nice to have your hair off your face as well, leaves you feeling fresher.. or maybe thats just me? haha.

  46. Oh yay, I was hoping for more pictures of this outfit/face! Lovely, the way the blouse balloons a little over the skirt is super flattering and tiny waist making. LIKE.

  47. lovelllyy shirt, miss!
    my hair mattes quite easily too. but your hair looks quite thick, i can kind of see why you'd have matting quite often. i always find the layer of hair underneath ALWAYS knots, it's so annoying! god knows why. it's so horrible and dry ALL the time. very weird.
    anyway, your hair is lovely, even if you dont like it haha. and your so lucky thats your natural colour - i am killlingg for mine to go that colour!

  48. I think your hair looks so perfect. And you look like a doll in that blouse. Loving your jewelry!

  49. Love the blouse! And you are totally rockin' the all-the-way-buttoned-up style. I used to do that all the time in high school and caught a lot of negativity for it. Whats up with haters?!

    Speaking of, your hair looks great. Don't change a thing ;)

  50. Love the shirt, how lovely is the coloue *Primark high five*
    I think if you had flat hair that was sleek all the time you'd get bored & want some body in it- we all what we can't have, hated my curls when i had them- they f*** off coz of the bleaching & now I'd kinda like to curl my hair up!

  57. I really like your hair but totally know what you mean about it looking crap as soon as you step outside! Love the shirt too, I think I've got the same one (it's longer at the back?) what a bargain for £10. :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have this shirt. I wore it in my last post and LOVED it! I have the exact same problem with my hair except my hairs curlier so it just ends up being a huge birds nest. Oooh for straight and sleek hair! I'm thinking maybe hair transplants á la Jason Gardiner?! xx

    ReplyDelete
  59. I hate my hair too. I spent ages doing my hair all nice and wavy last nice and when i finished all I wanted to do was to wash it. Looked like a birds nest =(

    Your shirt is really cute though.

  62. My hair was exactly the same as yours. I would brush and plait it before going to bed and wake up to find it all matted again in the morning. The knots would literally just be matted in, even after using deep conditioner, and I'd have to break loads of it when I brushed it. I went and had my hair cut the other week though, and now I never have the problem. But it took a good 1-2 inches off the length. Apparently it's the split ends! x

  64. hi!
    I've found your blog a few days ago and I'm in love. I read almost the hole one through during the last week and I wanted to ask you, if you lost weight?

    If so, would you mind to do a quick blog post about how you did?

    I know. I'm comment number 68 and you're tired of answering the same questions over and over again - but I don't know if anyone ever asked that before since I only read the blog and not the comments ;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have this shirt! Haven't worn it yet though. Feels too summery to contemplate! I think your hair looks nice but I get what you mean about it knotting, mine does it underneath a lot. I'd had enough last week and just cut all my ends off! I do that hairstyle you're talking about all the time too. Started doing it when I went blonde mostly to hide my yellowy bits!

  70. My hairs incredibly knotty too, but I'm aiming for your length, so I'm just gonna have to get used to it! Maybe it's the way you sleep on it? Do you tie it up? Mine always gets tangled in bed when I roll about ha jazzy ♥

    ReplyDelete
  71. your hair looks really nice! in the last photo especially it looks a REALLY nice colour! i wear my hair like yours most days, i clip my fringe which is in a middle parting to the sides of my head. Easy and always stays the way i want iut. And i know that it suits me so i don't change it! x

  74. The colour of your shirt is gorgeous, and the turquoise ring looks stunning against it. And I'm so jealous that your hair just decides to look that great, mine takes hours to get this natural, rolled-out-of-bed look since my actual rolled-out-of-bed look is a huge frizzy mess!

  79. Your primark blouse is so pretty. Want to raid your ring shop.

    My hair's basically fucked and I don't care anymore. Oviously I do but arghh nothing I do will bring it back to life. it falls out every time I touch it and am so terrified that I'll end up bald <3

  81. I didn't want to be mean with my comment, im sure you know that, and really your hair here is just gorgeous, i really like it loosin. My hair is very long now, and it knots at my neck all the time, like i get dreadlocks, but i just cant carry a hairbrush all the time. If i use conditioner it gets so volumeless.. so i see your point, I understand, i just leave my hair do whatever it wants most of the time lol

  93. The color of that blouse is perfect on you, love your hair like this too. I understand about the matting thing, my hair does the same! Although it happens me every couple of hours so I constantly have to brush my hair :( I hate it. I too wear my hair the same way 90% of the time. I actually clip it back a little bit similar to yours, I copied how Lauren Conrad does hers with bobby pins! Have a great weekend :)

    ...student job that is, it's not my ultimate career ambition to work in New Look. As that would be slightly tragic, even for me.

    In more relevant news, I am going to do exactly what you told me not to & say I love your hair!

  96. GIRL what chu talkin bout? Your hair is hot! I love the bed head look you always have. It's so chic and I'm actually jealous of it. I've got thin hair that stays put for the most time, and there's just no way for me to get the volume people like you have! So jeally. I don't think anyone really likes their hair anyways. This outfit is thebomb.com by the way.
