hiding in the dark


jumper: topshop
skirt: topshop 
shirt: H&M 
necklace: H&M 
watch: swatch 
bracelet: black tied
rings: love hearts and crosses*& market stall 
nails: models own balearic cool

This is what I wore yesterday, you eagle eyed readers might notice the jumper/shirt combo from yesterdays post! I've owned this plain black shirt for ages but I've never actually worn it, I don't think I really knew what to wear with it! My flatmate wore a similar outfit a few weeks ago so I guess I was inspired by her to pull out the shirt and layer it with my Topshop jumper. I really love this jumper, infact I like most of the jumpers Topshop have in at the moment. I just know as soon as I put it in the wash its either going to shrink or just go all bobbly! Le sigh! 

Today I went to the gym, had a meeting then ended up spending far too much money in Selfridges. I couldn't be bothered to ~do~ Oxford Street properly so just got a taxi to Selfridges (as I told myself that it has everything that I'd want anyway)! I haven't lived in London long but I do know the way to places, the Taxi driver took me round the houses so I ended up getting a bit grumpy. Im lazy, not stupid! Oh well! Hope everyones had a good Monday! Im always super happy at the beginning of the week, so I'm really positive right now!

  12. Such a cute jumper, it really suits your complexion Lily!

    I wish I was as motivated as you to go the gym frequently, I need a gym buddy! Do you just go on your own? I think i'd be quite scared to go on my own lol.
