Rockalily Style - Casual but bright

 

Last night I popped out for a quick drink after work, so I threw on some blue disco pants and a casual cotton cardigan. I'm a fan of clashing bright prints as a way of making 'casual' more interesting and put together, rather than just jeans and a jumper. It takes no more effort to wear a fun print than it does a plain black tee.

Rockalily Style - Rockalily T-shirt and big messy up-do

This morning I'm wearing playing cards tights to say hello to all of my friends over in Vegas at the moment!

I'm wearing a Rockalily Cuts T-shirt with a grey Topshop skirt.

My hair is in a big messy up-do. There are some victory type rolls in there, as well as some hair extensions for extra umph.

The headscarf is from Cath Kidson.

Rockalily Style - Clip in Extensions

 

Today I'm wearing a pencil dress (quick and easy) with an ombre clip in extension. 

I'm really tired due to having a lot on at the moment, but just powering through. I have another date tonight too, so will have to hit the caffeine hard!

March 20th over the last 3 years

 

The odd thing about being an #ootd blogger is that I can randomly compare myself. So this morning, rather than post an outfit post (I'm doing a lot of painting and decorating so I look rather dull!) I picked a date - March 20th, and pulled out the last 3 years outfits!

March 20th 2012 was before Rockalily Cuts existed, and I was wearing Tara Starlet dungarees with a H&M leopard print shirt. I was looking forward to heading to Viva Las Vegas 15.

March 20th 2013 and the salon had been open nearly a year, and I was excited about heading off to Viva Las Vegas 16 .

March 20th 2014 and I'm not heading anywhere just yet, I've got a second premises to get open!

Rockalily Style - Getting dirty

 

Today I'm doing a lot of manual labour (scrubbing, cleaning, dirty work) so I'm wearing basic jeans and my color run t-shirt.

The shoes are pretty tatty so I don't mind if they get ruined!

Retail Therapy with a super cute playsuit

I try not to rely too much on retail therapy, but sometimes a little purchase does wonder for the soul! I picked up this playsuit for half price from River Island. I felt ace in it as soon as I put it on! 

I also picked up this snuggly jumper from Primark. It's super thin so perfect for this spring weather.

We have a billboard!

Rockalily Cuts has a billboard! Its at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Hackney. You can see it in the Guardian newspaper too!

It was designed by two local artists in conjunction with a scheme called Now Create London. Local artists have created adverts for local businesses.

I can't wait to go and see it in the flesh!
