top uk blogs best uk fashion bloggers london style blog outfit of the day

Today my new pal Jon came round to shoot some outfits with me and hang out for a bit. It's so nice having new friends who can help me out with bloggy related things as well as hanging out together at the same time! Taking outfits myself is harder than it seems. Anyway... Here is what I wore today. The coat is something I've had for ages but my housemate has kindly borrow-sorta-kept. It's ever so slightly too big for my frame so I think that is why I was put off it. Despite this I really like it and it's reminds me I need to find a coat like this at some point. It's been on my list of things to buy forever, but I love the simplicity of it. Then I wore this check drop waist "smock" from Choies. Which is not only scandalously short but not smock style on me at all. It does only come in one size and that's definitely not Lily Melrose size!

PS. Last photo is just for fun ;)

  15. i love this Lily, everything works so well together and the dress is lovely
    if it's too short then maybe it would be perfect for summer holidays on top of bikinis if you're by the beach or pool :)

  19. The "dress" still looks great on you, but it's kind of sad that it's a one-size piece. Looks like it will hardly fit most women! x

  32. You need more "just for fun" photos, over the years I think you're making the blog less personal. Like to get to know you we would have to see you on your youtube videos.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, At the weekend I do lifestyle posts if thats what you mean... But at the end of the day my blog is a style diary blog and always has been. How would you suggest I make it "just for fun" out of interest? My blog has never really been very personal, I've opened up tenfold compared to what I used to be like and with all due respect as I've grown as a blogger I've wanted to keep my life and friends more private because of a growing audience and online presence which is justified. I hope you appreciate that I have a right to be private... While I dont personally agree with your comment, but I do appreciate the feedback.
