Aaaannndd normal posting resumes for a bit! Well sort of It’s been a while huh! I don’t know. I am sorry my blogs been all over the place the last four or so months. Selfishly I’ve enjoy travelling more than blogging, letting my blog slide. Although it's debatable if my content has been fundamentally bad or just different from what I normally talk about. As you're more than aware I’ve been travelling here there and everywhere but my time gallivanting across the world is finally coming to an end. As I write this I’m currently in New York with NEO Adidas and I have another trip to New York coming up and I’m going to Dubai in October but that’s it for a bit… maybe. Who knows.

It’s weird how this year has become a year of travelling. I’d never been away because of my blog before until late last year and it’s somehow sparked it all off. I feel so privileged to have been able to travel so much, it’s been on of my dreams to travel the world and I feel so blessed to be able to do it because of my blog! I do think cripes I’ve messed up by choosing not to blog as much, be more sporadic and all over the place but at the same time as I’ve always said about me… my life comes first. Then again I absolutely LOVE blogging and part of being away was me showing you the things I got up to. Who knows!

On the subject of more frivolous things. Lets do an outfit post! This outfit features one of my favourite dresses I’ve purchased in a very long time. Although now that I've finally got around to posting about it it isnt on the Missguided website.... There is just something about it that I really love. I love the unusual cut, tie waist and the risqué front. I’ve never been one to get my ample boobage out but I do like how it looks here. Missguided have gone from strength to strength over the last few years and their original designs are amongst some of my favourite pieces in my current wardrobe. I don’t love all their stuff, as much as I’ve been purchasing from there recently there is a bunch of stuff I really don’t like that feels and looks really cheap. Regardless. Totally recommend this dress... um if you could buy it still.

So I can’t say I will be back to solid outfit posts going forward. To be honest I don’t think thats even what I want to do on this blog anymore. I am edging towards switching it to even more and doing more travel and lifestyle but who knows. We shall see (:

  5. I love how you have such a distinct personal style - in fact I think we have a similar indie type of clothing style. That way every outfit is just typically YOU yet still stylish.

  6. I've enjoyed reading the different posts. Not that your outfit posts aren't a source of inspiration when I'm at a low moment contemplating what to wear and lacking any ideas, other than putting underwear on. Have fun in New York - look forward to reading about it.

  17. I've really loved your travelling posts! It's been so interesting reading about your time in Asia. Having said that, I do love a good old outfit post!!
    I've never really properly looked at Missguided, I've always felt it had the cheap look like you mentioned, this dress is gorgeous though, it's definitely convinced me to take another look at them!

  36. It sounds as though you're having an amazing time travelling around and you really deserve it! I personally love a bit of mix and match when it comes down to blog posts. As much as I love your outfit posts, I think adding some travel and lifestyle would be great :)

    I've been wanting to get my hands on that Missguided dress for a while, and as per it looks amazing on you! Shame it's not on the website anymore but Missguided seem to restock quickly and for a long time - another reason why I adore them! x

  37. Lily, we love your blogs and your pictures and your style (writing and fashion) I'm sure that's why we all come back here! I'm loving all the lifestyle posts and seeing what your up to when travelling and what not. I think it lets us see another side to you other than clothes and beauty. Post what makes you happy and when you are happy we are happy :)

  38. I saw this dress on the misguided website a few weeks ago, dam I wish I'd got it now! It looks amazing and is such an unusual style, I especially love the tie bit! I've never bought anything from missguided despite everything looking great on blogs. I think as it's quite reasonably priced I've been wary of t looking cheap in real life so I've yet to just bite the bullet and place an order!

    I have to say your outfit posts are a favourite of mine but if you feel like you want to go in a different direction with your blog then that would be a good move also :) I'd love to see more lifestyle posts and a change is good X

  66. So both times I've read this post the fourth photo has fooled me into thinking you were wearing a swimming costume as per the angle of your arms !! Sorely dissapointed ;) I love the simplicity of this outift, it's very cool. Also I think blogs are better when they're a bit all over the place, the more you do in your real life the richer your blog content will become. Nothing worse when you can tell a blogger just does the same thing on repeat... boring! As they say, 'variety is the spice of life!'
