Today I decided to actually put some proper clothes on and look nice after a weekend of slobbing around in front of the television in my PJ's. Although Im pretty sure I've worn a similar outfit to this before, I thought I'd post it again as I just love the way my scarf looks! I love how it can add a pop of colour to anything. My dress is this one from ASOS, I wore it to Fashion week earlier in the year but haven't pulled it out since. Its very oversized and baggy, which is the look I'm drawn to at the moment! I don't know what it is about larger clothes that Im drawn to, I think it just gives such an interesting silhouette.

I spent the day cleaning my flat, organising posts for ETCLLYMLRS and doing my washing. I then forgot I did my washing and then it rained and now I have to wash it again! Im terrible at living alone, haha! Even though I did my own washing when I lived with my Mum I really took for granted the wondrous machine that is a dryer!  I also did my nails in my favourite Models Own nail polish and some of the Topshop Nail tattoo's which I reviewed a while ago. I went with a swallow theme and I they are my favourite decal on the transfer sheets ~So Miu Miu~!

  1. I thought Miu Miu when I saw those nails! Very chic :-) I might get me some.

    The tartan is a real nice accessory to add... very warm, wintery and cosy! Cuz it is still pretty freezing out there let's face it!

    Gorgeous lip colour too :-)

  14. I just read your etcllymlrs review of that lipstick your wearing and I LOVE IT! Not too blue toned at all!
    I'm addicted to just throwing on my tartan scarf with any black/neutral outfit, easy way of injecting colour!
    It would be mine
    Also what lipstick were you wearing in you Sunday portrait? I really liked it

    1. Im wearing Topshop Powder Room, But bear in mind the colours of the photo are edited so it doesn't look the same in real life! I think it is a bit too blue toned as my skins very warm (orange! (; ) and i think it looks a touch too much! i agree, the tartan scarf is a great way to add colour!

  27. I really like about this outfit but I don't know why. Maybe because there are some things that look like they are from grandpa's closet and you made it all work for you. Love how you do it Lily :)xxx
