what i wore today
llymlrs outfit topshop H&M asos american apparel
llymlrs makeup topshop satorial lipstick
top: topshop
leggings topshop
coat: topshop
necklace: asos
shoes: H&M
bracelet: topshop
nails: AA Nails neon green

EEK. Gothic outfit alert! Sorry to those who prefer me in colour! All Topshop too, which is a pretty poor effort from me as I do make a conscious effort to not wear all Topshop. Even my lipstick is Topshop! I do apologise in advance if Im wearing these tunics in a lot of upcoming outfit posts, I do really love the fit and the cut and I did buy it in practically every colour! I haven't worn my leather look leggings in a while and they are a bit too big for me since I went back to the gym, but they still look pretty cool! Even if I have baggy knees! Im so in love with AA Nails polishes at the moment, Neon Green has to be my all time favourite colour even though it has to be one of the worst polishes I've ever used. I shall review it on ETCLLYMLRS as soon as I've worn it a bit more to get a feel for the polish! I doodled a bit on my pinkie on my left hand with some ebay nail art pens (I reviewed them here), I might do all of them if I feel up to the challenge! I wore my "game of thrones" coat in honour of the last episode of the second series. I can hardly believe Im wearing a fur coat in June! Was our summer those few hot days we had last week?

Today I've been doing the mega boring task of sorting out all my receipts to hand over to my accountant. I don't think he'd appreciate me shoving a box of crumpled receipts into hands! I've been craving Japanese food all day so I've just ordered some and I can barely wait for it to get into my tummy! People across the road from me are having some sort of party, I presume its sports related as I've heard whoops and hollers for most of the day. A bunch of grown men screaming like little girls? Very annoying! I've also started watching Workaholics because my friend Greg has been pestering me to watch it for months. Bit of a random one today as I seem to be typing whatever seems to pop into my head! Least its better than yesterdays post, Sorry about that!

PS. I've used so! many! exclamation! marks! in! this! post!

    1. i sized down (well I got a 8 and Im currently more towards a 8 than a 10) its pretty baggy though! i reckon you could probs get away with wearing it as a dress though, I wore it with shorts the other day!

  14. Love your Game of Thrones coat! I'm just coming to the end of book 3 and I am OBSESSED with it - cannot stop reading!

    I'll be heading to my accountant with my awful bookkeeping soon too... would totally recommend getting a business credit card for your expenses though. Means you don't need to keep the receipts - you just pay for everything expensable on the card then hand over your statements when it comes to claiming back. I love mine! :) x

  18. Love this outfit, you look amazing! What a nice feeling it must be to find a few clothes that don't fit you anymore after going to the gym! Am currently in the process of fighting off a little excess weight that has gathered over the year, in time for summer - but keep falling off the band wagon! You have such a gorgeous figure! I wish I had the willpower to go to the gym! I'd love to know how you maintain such a lovely figure (especially with all the tasty treats you post on instagram!).

    Love Scarlett xx

  38. haha, i understand your pain about the jacket, in England I think our summer lasts only about a week! I had to wear a jumper yesterday because it was rainy and cold in JUNE. x

  39. Lovely outfit Lily! I ordered the top in a size 8 thinking it would be a perfect fit with me being petite. However I tried on the size 8 in store yesterday and realized it's quite big so might swap for a 6. What size is yours? xx
