panther print








shirt: asos*
leggings: american apparel
gilet: forever 21
necklace: asos*
rings: asos*
shoes: asos*
nails: models own pink punch* (neon pink but looks weird on my camera!)
makeup: see this post

This is what I'm wearing to a MUA event tonight, bit nippy so I'm also wearing a long sleeved top underneath because sometimes its not worth suffering for fashion. I'm totally in love with this panther print shirt! Its a size 12 as all other sizes were sold out, it feels absolutely massive on me! The sleeves are so long I have to roll them up a bit, but they do feel pretty cosy like I'm wearing a boyfriends shirt (heh as if, single ladiez). I feel like all I wear at the moment is a variation of the leggings shirt/long top/tunic and flatforms combos. I really need to branch back out into dresses and skirts, but at the same time the shops right now really dont excite me. Im really dreading spring summer right now!

Also I hit a whopping 12000 GFC followers on here, Still a massive shock to the system for me that I even have one follower let alone however many I have nowadays. I try not to mention stuff like this as it does come off braggy, regardless of me trying to say Im not bragging (which Im not, but you catch my drift?). But big thank you to everyone who chooses to follow me and continues to support me and my blog! I really wouldn't have the opportunities or the life currently I have without you guys, Just wish I could really show how thankful I am, without coming off insincere, braggy or full of myself! Im not one to gush, but I really am thankful. I've always seen myself as "the Primark of Fashion Blogging" as my blogs alot faster/relatable/obtainable than most Fashion blogs out there. But my readers are the ones that make me feel like I do have some relevance in blogging and I should be proud of how far my blog has come since I started in 2009.

  19. I feel the same about spring/summer collections, I don't want to wear colour or floaty things, and I just don't really like anything in the shops right now that isn't winter wear, boo. Congratulations on 12000, I've been reading your blog for nearly 2 years now, I think it was the first fashion blog I started reading and I hope you never stop posting! xxx

  26. 'The primark of fashion blogging' haha! tbh that's why your blog is so good, it's actually relateable, anybody could look stylish wearing disco pants and JC litas but your blog is fab cos it shows if you have actual style you can look just as good with cheaper high street clothes, love your blog lily :)!

  28. The shirt is beautz! Congratulations of the 12,000 Lily, that's bloody amazing, you do deserve it though!

    I was wondering, do you find your ASOS flatforms are easier to walk in than the Office/H&M ones!? I'm seriously considering parting with £40 for them but my H&M ones are terrible for walking in at the minute! ee xo

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i prefer my office ones, but thats because i prefer the style of them. the asos ones are nice though i dont find them hard to walk in. I find my H&M ones the most comfortable out of them all though!

  51. This shirt is PERFECT! You're one of the only 'bigger bloggers' with shitloads of followers that I actually feel is like a 'real person' and I can actually read and relate to if you get what I mean. Most other professional bloggers wear all designer and I could never just pop out and buy what they wear.. so massive congrats on the followers you really deserve it :)

  62. Congratulations on your 12000 followers, the obtainable and relate-able nature of your blog is what makes it so popular and why so many love it! I am a big fan of the panther, unusual print! Completely fallen in love with the colour of your nails too, need to get out of my dull winter colour nails rut

  76. you should definitely be proud of your blog and reaching 12000 followers! that's incredible, well done. i love the fact that your blog is relatable and that you shop in normal high street shops rather than buying things that cost an arm and a leg. there's been a number of times i've come on here to see you wearing something really cool that i can afford and immediately popping it on my shopping list - when you first posted that primark pleated leather skirt i practically ran to get myself one! although i should probs stop doing that for the sake of my bank balance... anyway, essay comment but congratulations and im going to throw caution to the finances and continue reading your lovely blog :) xxx
