into oblivion






top: primark
leggings: ebay
necklace: topshop
watch: swatch
shoes: asos*
coat: river island
bracelet: black tied*
nails: 17 woo me

I've always wanted some of the infamous Motel Black and White Jordan jeans, However there is something about jeans just don't sit well with me. I think I just dont like denim, I prefer things that are a little softer to wear than denim. However I saw these leggings on ebay and decided to go ahead and order them! I'm pleased with them, as far as statement leggings go these are about as far as I'd push myself. I absolutely despite the baroque print ones that are ~all the rage~ at the moment! But these are pretty cool. I think with a simple black top they didn't look too much, and I particularly like the way they look with my flatforms! I'm also a big fan of my black tied cross bracelet and my beloved swatch watch at the moment. I go through phases of not wearing a watch and then wearing one, the ticking drives me a little bit mad!

Today has been a bit of a write off as I wasn't able to do half the things I'd planned to do. Mainly because after I'd got ready and did myphotos I settled down and started reading blogs, and then one hour quickly turned into two! I did manage to plough through my emails and reply to the questions I know the answers to! I really need to go into central London to take stuff back as I probably have a few hundred pounds of clothes squirrelled away in my bedroom that I need to take back. I keep looking at my bank balance and telling myself to get myself to the shops to return them!

  34. That nail polish is a dupe for Model's Own Utopia! x

    ReplyDelete
  35. Another gorgeous monochrome outfit - I love how simple it is but yet really stands out at the same time.
    I have exactly the same problem with my watch, its a vintage one that I have to wind everyday and it's insanely loud so I've stopped bothering to wind it and just wear it coz its pretty, but then when people ask me the time I seem like a complete idiot!
    I really like the way you've styled your hair today by the way x

  40. i have them jeans from motel, and although they say jeans, they don't feel like them at all too much like leggings to be classed as 'Jeans'. Lovely outfit by the way :)

  41. Those leggings look so good! I love this outfit. BTW my balance is always really bad, you should go and return the clothes, I normally used to leave mine around and then the last day passed and I'm stuck with them. x

    ReplyDelete
  42. go and return things!! sorry, but i have about £200 worth of clothes and shoes that don't fit me and i didn't return them within 28 days so now i'm stuck with them! and i'm poor :( to be honest, shouldn't have really bought them in the first place though. oh dear. love these leggings! i normally shy away from patterned leggings but these look really good. lovely as always! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your hair is amazing in these photos :) I think it would be really nice if you let all the blonde grow out!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love these leggings, I tried on some similar ones from River Island but the stripes were thicker so they weren't as flattering x

  48. Love this outfit! The leggings doesn't make it over the top! It looks just nice! H&M has something like the leggings too and the material is something like jeggings? lol. it looks nice though!

  50. Need need need these leggings! I've become oddly obsessed with leggings after being terrified of them (I have a large derriere) all my life. These might just have to be next on the list!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Your right, your leggings looks so cool with your flatworms...(lol typo I meant flatforms) there is just something about pairing the two together! Kinda reminds me of beetlejuice or something!

  60. Love the outfit! And I am REALLY massively enjoying the ASOS Flatforms... never bought shoes off ASOS - has anyone else? I have wide feet so not sure how big/small people find them?

    Think I will definitely try and purchase a pair similar they look ace! :)

    I am also loving the dip dye, I had one done and as they werent sure how consistent the colour would be they dyed the whole undersection of my hair blonde so it kind of peeks out from underneath, but I really love the colour combo Lily has!

  69. Those leggings are far better than baroque. Monochrome is the way forward, I may have to invest. I came on your blog to get the ~ symbol to type into my address bar because i can't find it on my mac keyboard, glad it was in this post!
