neon jumper II











top: topshop
shirt: H&M
skirt: H&M
bow: primark
rings: jwlry, love hearts and crosses*, forever 21
lips: illamasqua androgen (review here)

This was the finished outfit from the other day when I celebrated my blog birthday. Admittedly I was actually wearing my PJ bottoms in the video (but I hear everyone on Youtube does this too?). Shock horror that Im wearing some colour after last week's gothic period. Personally I like wearing black and do wear it alot, I know this. I always wonder why I get the odd complaints when I do though! This blog is basically just what I wear on a day to day basis. None of it is staged or worn just for show! Therefore its natural I occasionally wear the same colour, especially a colour I like wearing alot. Although I do think my blog and blogging daily has challenged me to keep things different and fresh as much as I can. I do try very hard not to do the same outfit twice and always think of new ways to rewear the clothes I have!

I've had a wonderful time back "home" the last few days. Although now Im looking forward to going back home to London. I realised that I call both places home now even though I've lived in Ludlow all my life and moved to London less than 5 months ago. Ludlow is nice, but it's a bore and such a slow pace of life. In London I can do what I want when I want and not have to worry about the shops closing early or not being able to find what I need. I'm leaving super early tomorrow so I can make it back for a Pixi event and then Im off to get my hair cut in the evening!

  1. I always wear black! I've been told off for it far too much, so I've branched into grey and white.. which is about as exciting as it'll get! I think you pull off this jumper amazingly, it's something I'd never brave!

  2. I wear black a lot too and my boyfriend makes comments like you look like you're going to a funeral but I have to wear black on shoots. That jumper is gorgeous though don't think i'm brave enough for neons just yet. Your bow tie is adorable too x

  17. Ohh, I love this jumper, and the nail polish :)
    I can see why you would feel that you have to wear things in new ways because of blogging, I find I don't do outfit posts that often purely because I don't want to stage an outfit purely for blogging purposes, and a lot of my outfits are boring! x

  19. I always wear black as well! I've tried to break out of it but I think I just gravitate towards darker moodier hues. It's the rock chick/goth within me. LOL. I love your orange jumper <3

  23. I wear black a lot to and I don't think the colour of an item should have to much effect I think its important how you wear it.
