rolling in the deep



rings: asos & jwlry
everything else: river island

This was a outfit that was meant to be featured on River Island, but due to time constraints and me sending it off too late they couldn't post it. Oh well! I wore this out for drinks last week, fully embracing the semi hooker look with the over the knee socks and heels (not pictured, but they were these ones, I couldn't walk, do do heels, ever!) I actually quite like the socks for some reason, I'm not really a knee high or socky person and I think it makes me look super short, however it sort of worked with the vibe I was aiming for!

Anyway I must dash! Tonight Im going out for Nandos and to see Thor, I've heard some good things about it so who knows if I'll like it or not. University work is going nowhere, I keep going round in circles hoping that inspiration will pop out or a project will come together completely. I'm starting printing my work on Monday! Eeep!

Ps. This is a scheduled post that didnt post, I thought Thor was quite good though!

  6. I really really REALLY like this outfit! The dress is really cool, I like all those peter pan collar dresses. I remember the one you got from ASOS which was the opposite colours to this one. I thought that one was great too.
    Also, I've really wanted this hat every since you first posted a look wearing it, but I've never seen it in my local New Look, and I didn't see it on the website :( Pretty bummed about that as I want a floppy hat that doesn't have massive rim and isn't really floppy lol.
    I haven't seen Thor yet, probably won't get the chance :( You should go see Water for Elephants! The story is amazing (I think)

  7. Great outfit, I especially love the hat! Been looking for one just like it but everywhere I go at the minute they only have straw floppy hats. Maybe I'll have to wait for winter for a wool or felt one :(

  9. The socks really make the outfit;) And I have to admit I loved Thor, if only for the shirtless shots (I gasped out loud and my boyfriend elbowed me and said 'I heard that'.

  13. Lovely outfit. I know what you mean about the hooker look but you could never look like a hooker, sometimes its the kind of girl in the clothes too and you dont look like a hooker at all! River Islands loss i think!

  15. I love this outfit and while reading this post, I realized 3 things:
    1. I can't imagine you without ombre hair! Please keep it, it looks soo good on u!
    2. I think you have one of the most beautiful names I know!
    3. I am totally addicted to your blog! Never stop blogging! Ever.
    And yes, Thor was awesome! Just watched it a second time. Epic in 3D. Although Chris Hemsworth might be one of the reasons... ^^

  24. YOU HAVE MY BAG. Well sort of. I have the original, beigey coloured one which I completely adore, I've notcied that they've been producing it in loads of different colours and materials recently.
    Really like the outfit and I know what you mean about the socks, I wouldn't have the confidence to wear them usually in fear of looking like a complete slag but they do go really well with the outfit and it still looks really classy. x

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah, I think the socks give it a more interesting look than tights would fo sho.
    And the hat just makes it perfect,

  26. Such a sweet outfit Lily, the monochrome tones tone down the knee highs so its not too cutesy, defz not semi-hooker either hahaha (: Those heels though...! I would be possibly crawling, cannot walk in wooden-y heels ever! I thought Thor was really good too, except all those metallic sounds were a bit much at times? xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. for some reason I love the combination of high knee socks, hat and high heels! It's very boho and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I need to pluck up the courage to wear knee high socks outside of my house, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  29. looking gorgeous as per usual <3 love the socks, they kind of make the outfit

    ReplyDelete
  30. I really like the tigh high scoks, I've been rocking them for a while and plan to do so during the summer, and they look great on you, if the gap between whatever top you're wearing and the socks is a bit pronounced it actually makes you look taller, of course you might risk flashing someone if the wind decides to play up x3
    Anyway the look is lovely, and the hat adds a nice touch to it.

  51. I love knew high socks though getting them to stay up in a pain.

    I went to see Thor a few weeks ago and was pretty impressed. It was predictable (as are most big budget films) but it was funny and the special effects were amazing! xx
