faux pas


top: new look
skirt: H&M
blazer: H&M
rings: jwlry & market stall
nails: models own top turquoise
earrings: primark
belt: primark

Today I went for lunch with my Mum, my brother and his friend Theo to ASK. I haven't been there in such a long time and I actually really enjoyed it. Especially for a chain sort of restaurant the food was really lovely! Ended up being naughty and buying some boots from New Look that I really didnt need as they are pretty much the same as my beloved Allegeras (doesnt everyone have a pair now?) but suedey/velvety material instead. I really didnt need more boots, but oh well. Can never have enough shoes can we!

I cant help think that my boobs (courtesy of Wonderbra Full Effect, always) look ridiculous in stripey tops. Makes them look a bit wonky haha! Oh well! Never sure if black and blue are still a no no, but who really cares for fashion rules anymore! I saw a similar blazer to the one I wore today in H&M in a lovely camel colour which would look awesome this Autumn/Winter! Oh autumn winter cannot come soon enough!

In London tomorrow so no blog post tomorrow unfortunately! And if you see me feel free to say Hi, It always makes me sad me how many people do tweet me saying "oh I just saw you", Just come say hello! I know its well embarrassing saying Hi to people off the internet but its really embarrassing for me too! I always turn into the most awkward turtle! But I love meeting people who follow my blog!

  5. hmmmm does that bra work wonders? i'm a small chested girlie but i've never tried anything by wonderbra. i'm always convinced that it'll be obvious i'm wearing a big padded bra?

    good luck tomorrow lily x

  6. I think the blue and black go well together! Love this outfit. I wore a blue vest with black shorts to the gym this morning...I thought, should I do this? Then thought, oh well it's only the gym! It's a silly rule anyway haha xx

  13. I think black and blue look awesome together!! I got this one friend and she's full of 'fashion rules' and it proper bugs me.. 'no necklaces AND earrings' etc etc.. She speaks no sense! lol!

  15. Oh god, I totally would've picked up those boots if we had New Look over here! ;D I've bought a pretty similair pair last year in July and I've worn them every season ever since, haha. No matter if it was raining, snowing ridiculously or a heat wave striking... my New Look boots survived all of that. <3

  17. I just saw those boots today. They're just like the Asos Ames ones I've been wanting for ages, but cheaper. Downside is that weird, fake suede, velvety feel, but they're more than half the price of the Asos ones so I think I'll take them.

    And I love blue & black together. Was debating that in work with someone the other day. It looks fine!

  20. I'd say hello if I saw you out and about in London, unfortunately I'll be working tomorrow though - so I probably wont be near the same part of London as you are. Have a lovely time though.

    I think you rock the black and blue look, I love your blazer.

  24. I think the blue & black combo looks lovely! Then again I'm not the kind to follow the fashion 'rules'! The ankle boots look lovely, I've been looking for some perfect plain black ones for ages.

  31. I don't see what's wrong with wearing blue and black! You look lovely in both colours seperately and together.

    Great boots - they look a bit like those ones everyone wanted from ASOS.

    Ahhh AWKWARD TURTLE. Gotta love that. Awkward whale sounds hilarious though. I'll say hi if I see you but I doubt it as I'll be round Shepherd's Bush/Westfield..

    Still, enjoy London xxx

  32. I love that skirt. I'm so used to wearing the H&M bodycon skirts, I think I need something different.
    About the whole 'wonky boob' sitch, it might be because one of them is actually bigger than the other anyway, like most other womans', but it's just a little noticeable because the stripes.
    Have a lovely time in London :)

  34. Cute top, love the skirt! Totally agree with you, when summer's basically over anyway I just want to get right into AW style! I love winter boots, I really want some shorter wedge-boots for everyday wear, River Island is probably my best bet. Have fun in London x

  35. I'd love to meet you! Sadly I'm working tomorrow and don't have the luxury or good enough reasons for a day out to London!
