Recently ASOS asked me to make a haul video based around the theme of Military. I'm big on Military inspired pieces at the moment so of course I jumped at the chance to do so. I've been asked loads on Youtube to do some styling videos based on the trend but I'd already planned to just pull all the bits into outfit posts on here. I shall link them all in the bottom bar of the video as I go along though.

One of the items I picked, this oversized green Aran jumper is something I've wanted for years. My friend Sophie wore one once and I was literally green (punny) with envy when she told me it was vintage. Flash forward a few years and it's one of those items that I've always wanted but just haven't found the right one. I got this in size 12 which is actually a touch too big for what I wanted but it will do just fine. It's a oversized cut so if you're looking to buy I'd say stick with your usual size rather than size up or down. I paired it with this leather mini skirt which is just perfect. It has the right ammount of stretch and looseness so you can wear it comfortably without having to worry about sitting down and it ripping at the bum or something!

Tonight I'm popping off to Fashions Night Out. I was supposed to be at a Topshop x JW Anderson event but Im desperately trying to find somewhere to live at the moment as I'm being kicked out on the 19th September! Im really sad I had to miss that as it was my first time being involved with Topshop events wise, but I have to be a adult about it and find somewhere to live first!

  10. I love your jumper, it looks so cosy! Really like the way you've styled it, too - I think the military trend can be tricky to pull off, but this looks nice! Sucks that you're being kicked out at such short notice, landlords have an annoying tendency to do that!

  35. and p.s i LOVE the hi-top wedge shoes!!!! WANT THEM SO BAD

  36. I really love the feel of this post, the jumper is so pretty, the color looks so nice - so military! It doesn't look that over-sized on you though, it's probably the pictures. But I agree that when buying over-sized cuts we should stick to our sizes.

    Good luck finding a place to live, Lily!

    The video was really nice, you're so natural in front of the camera it's enjoyable to watch! You're not boring at all :)

  49. Love the jumper, it really is the perfect khaki one. I find A/W clothing so much nicer usually. As for my thoughts on the wedge hi-tops, a couple of months ago I wasn't too keen, but actually ordered some last week and can't wait to try them now!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I loved watching this video, seeing your first impressions of everything was better than just a usual haul.. now I'm excited to see how you'll style everything. I think my favourite was the little knitted jumper with leather sleeves, oo and the chelsea boots!

  53. Hi, what a great web blog. I usually spend hours on the net reading blogs on Best Deals. And, I really would like to praise you for writing such a fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and yes, you got it. This is really informative and I will for sure refer my friends the same. Thanks.
