topshop skirt 
new look bag*

Chilled out outfit today as it's warm but not too warm here in London. The sun is shining but there is a bit of a chill in the air. I've actually be changing in and out of outfits all day. But this monochrome outfit was my favourite thing I wore. It's just so simple and pretty and the ribbed detail on the jumper really adds to the look. I always say this but the key to a good monochromatic look is to mix it up with some textured pieces.

Today I made a ton of videos for both my Youtube channels as well as uploaded a video on Fan Culture to my second channel which you can watch here. I havent been up to much apart from working today and I think tonight we're all going to have a housemate BBQ which is nice. We're all totally addicted to BBQ's at the moment and any excuse to have one we do. I think thats a British thing? SUNS OUT? FIRE UP THE BBQ!

  1. I love this outfit of yours Lily! I think with monochrome outfits it's really important to mix and match different textures, which you've done wonderfully - I especially love the ribbed jumper!

  2. Definitely a british thing, you can smell BBQ's in the air when the sun's out and that's how you know its summer. Great look lily as always. :) Leigh xo

  27. Been eyeing up this jumper in Topshop for about nearly 2 months and I think you've just convinced me I need it..
    And it's definitely a British thing. Any slight chance of sun and it's Pimms/BBQ time! x

  29. Ah, that jumper!

    I have to say, no one does BBQs quite like you Brits. I'm trying to make it a thing in France too - I mean, I even brought 4 bottles of Pimm's back with me one summer. Yes, on a plane!
