mint to be





blazer: river island
skirt: romwe
top: topshop

belt: primark
rings: jwlry, topshop, market stall
nails: models own top turquoise
lipstick: lime crime my beautiful rocket

My hair is crazy frizzy in these photos! I went to town earlier and of course got rained on! I wanted to get photos done though before the light went in my "photo room" (aka spare room!). However its now become my brothers room as he really "needs" a gaming room (idiot!) so I'm really not sure how much longer I can keep on with outfits until I move out! So annoyed but theres nothing I can do as he's A. really selfish and really NEEDS two rooms and B. I don't want to go in his smelly room once he makes it his own! My room doesnt have enough light in so its crappy to take photos in. Woe is me and my own selfish ways!

Anyhoo, I got sent this skirt from Romwe, Its really lovely and it fits me perfectly, very pleased with it as I was a bit worried it not fitting as one size usually suggests tiny! I was also sent the lipstick I'm wearing, which I mentioned a few posts ago but I still had people asking what It was! Its Lime Crime My Beautiful Rocket, which again I was sent! Its my perfect semi-granny coral orange chic lipsticks. As for my top (which I paid for!), a little Topshop special from ages ago that I never got round to wearing. The collar is just adorable & the colour is just awesome! Mint is one of my all time favourite colours! I feel like this is a very ~freebie~ outfit, which is very unlike me, however I do like all of it or I wouldn't be posting about it! yaddayaddayadda!

ps. dont you love the punny title! hohoho.

  7. I really like the mint shirt... not sure if the colour would suit me though. I like the triple Peter Pan collar too, I don't think I've seen anything like it before.

    P.S. Very witty title!

  8. I love that top. The layered collar is amazing. I'm gonna try and hunt it down now. Is it actually good quality or is it the same as a lot of their stuff lately and that odd fabric that goes all misshapen?

  26. ST. TRINIAN'S AHOY! (I like the movie btw).
    Cool outfit! And this blonde is really great! So soft and not cheap looking. Full head would suit you totally I think (but don't blame me if it doesn't ;-) ).
    Have a great evening Lily!

  55. I like wearing a lot of black with some accent of colour, like you have here.

    Also, your hair looks so good. I'm really wanting to experiment with this whole ombre thing, but my hair is fairly short so don't know if it would suit. Looks great though! :)

  56. Hi,

    I usually lurk and don't comment but avoiding doing dissertation work right now so thought I would ask:

    have you done a post about how you do your make up at all? I would be interested to know! if you have just point me in the right direction, but if you haven't then do it!!!

    Love the blog - and your newly dyed hair!
