london style blog outfit of the day


topshop skirt 
river island top 
converse low tops
 zara bag

Today I got the dirtiest look of an old lady I’ve ever had in my life. Why? Because I wasn’t wearing tights “on a day like today”. Sigh. It’s not really been that cold but I guess on the flip side it hasn’t been that worn. I was just lazy and couldn’t be bothered to put any on. Plus tights are notorious outfit ruiners. I think I've decided I hate tights! 

Anyway today I've been working like crazy - planning a few things for the next few months and trying to finish off two videos for the rest of the week. One will be up tomorrow and the other will hopefully be up on Sunday. Im also in the process of trying to find some desk space to rent in London which is proving difficult as I know what Im looking for I just haven't found one thats clicked yet. I'm off to Liverpool tomorrow which should be lovely as I love the city and I haven't been up north (Although, north to us Londoners is anything beyond London in a all fairness) for such a long time. Im really looking forward to it.

Excuse my silly faces. Wasnt feeling today at all so went with the photos I'd normally delete!

  6. As a self-proclaimed Liverpool lover, I'm gonna have to say you'd love it, and you definitely need to check out the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar near Urban Outfitters/John Lewis. Give us a tweet if you need any tips, but I'm sure you'll find enough to do to amuse yourself, and hope you feel better for it! xx

  9. Do not get me started on tights. Oh my god were they invented with the intention of being unbelievably uncomfortable? The Justin Bieber style drop crotch, the back of the leg and ass itch burn and the unavoidable ladders. I'm happy that you've joined the 'No Tights Club', seriously they make my day 405 times worse. Tights rant over you look adorable and edgy all at once as per!

  27. love that you've gone for a top-like bra, instead of a regular bra. I sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable when wearing sheer tops with a regular bra. :) x

  28. Love this outfit Lily!

    On the note of tights, I'm also not a fan... plus I have a theory that your legs will dry out quicker if it rains without tights.

    Have a lovely time in Liverpool.

  40. I love your hair in this and have totally stolen this style (well similar) for second day hair! The skirt is also lovely but I'm not brave enough to wear something this short with converse. You style it out!
