set fire to the rain








top: primark
skirt: primark
boots: topshop (albas)
rings: jwlry & market stall
nails: models own juicy jules
coat: topshop

Gratutitous nail pics as I'm in love with my new super sparkly nail polish! Models Own Juicy Jules has been on my wishlist for ages but never got round to buying it myself, again thanks to grnnymlrs (well its my mums mum so its not melrose, but just just for continuity!) present choices its finally on my finger nails! Very happy!

Wore my hair up again today as its really annoying my being as its so long at the moment. Tempted to get it cut blunt at the ends and get some extensions for some volume. I've had this middle parting ~boho~ ombre look for so long now its starting to drive me a little loopy. I wear my hair up quite alot at home in a topknot but rarely in outfit photos! This style is something I've recently started doing, really simple as is just a bit of a backcombed beehive around the crown, pinned back with a few clips and then the rest in a bun at the back!

New peter pan top from the Primark sale and that Primark pleated pleather skirt! Picked up the last few in my local Primark for a few people in my local Primark that had gone to a measely £5. Absolute bargain if you can find them! I've worn mine countless times since I got it! I feel terrible as I'm always wearing the same sort of stuff at the moment! Sorry about that!

  31. love your hair like this lily... I wear my bob a bit like this - a bit of backcombing or volume powder and then pull it from the side - have you ever considered trying the faux bob (fob!) - think it'd look lovely on you.
