Alimony, Alimony

Thought I'd be a daredevil and make this ootd a full blown blogpost seeing as one snapshot got a good reaction over on IG. Rebel without a cause. Or with a cause? I'm exhausted from defending Kanye to the public, namely some poor guy in Starbucks who thought I was taking the mick when I proclaimed KW was my "God". Amongst our yearning for Yeezy and overall awe for his genius I reckon we're long overdue a bodyguard ass kicking gig Rawr Girls. Watch out world, we're rocking the black leather pants! Most people get hyperactive over global warming, politics or what to have for dinner, but I can safely say you hate on Kanye West, Spike Lee or Starbucks and I'm on ya. 

Talking Starbucks, anyone else crushing on cool lime refreshers as much as me? My blood's got to be green. It's gotta be! My body mass made up of 20% water, 80% cool lime. Just call me Green Blooded Girl. My heart is going to shatter all over the synthetic flooring when the cool limes go into hibernation for winter. All those toss-pot spice, cinnamon and mulled drinks get my blood boiling (and no doubt turning back to red). Seriously though, the Starbucks addiction is in full force, I'm visiting the place every single damn day. 

Lastly, on my mind; liking the cold shoulders of this top, and the blue tones. Loving the fact that the X Factor is due to return in a few weeks. Eeep. Hating that Grimshaw is a judge. WTF? But hey hey! We've got that sweetheart Mr Murs co-hosting the show. Damn, I do love him a little (a lot). 

I wanna hear all about your favourite Starbucks drinks, X Factor feelings, current obsessions, the lot!

  1. You know, I don't think I've had any Starbucks chilled drinks this year, SLACKER! Actually loving this outfit, and I need that giant bag in my life! x

  2. You look lovely Sophie, I love the sunglasses actually, I really want a round pair!!
    I've not been to Starbucks in ages! Mostly cos I'm saving to go travelling and just think I can get a coffee at home rather than spending £3 on one but I like their creamy fraps! xxx

  3. Haven't been to Starbucks in ages because I'm broke, but I'll defend Yeezy 4 lyfe! No, but really, I will. On a side note, I never noticed your star tattoos before. Love tiny little tattoos. :)


  4. You look stunning as always Soph! I love that hat and your blouse is just so cute, that color looks gorgeous on you. :) <3

  5. You look gorgeous Sophie!! I love this whole outfit and turquoise is so your colour :) xx

  6. Nice outfit <3

  7. You look stunning! I love that bag, but you already know that! :) I love the turqoise colour on you! It looks absolutely great on you!

  8. Oh, I love your necklace/pendant! That's totally up my street :) Another super pretty look! I'm feeling so cold today, it seems like it might be jumper weather soon! Ah, it's not a Starbucks drink but we recently got a cafetiere (ha! am I getting old?!) and so we've been making french vanilla coffee with chocolate milk which sounds kinda weird but is really good! xxx

  9. I'm so glad you've turned this look into a post- I LOOOVVE it! this is definitely your colour Sophie, it looks incredible on you :) The hat is super cute and the ripped jeans and, well, all of it!!! Aww the UK X Factor, I miss it! Olly Murs is a total hottie though haha! Isn't Nick Grimshaw a Radio 1 host? That's so weird, I thought judges were supposed to be able to sing. Mel B is a judge on the Australian X Factor- it's hilarious and all my boyfriends mates think that I have the same accent as her :P

  10. Well I'm not gonna say anything about Kanye ;) haha! You look lovely as always and I now want a Starbucks! I like their strawberries and cream frappuccinos! x

  12. Errrr I need to try that drink immediately! Might have to pop in to the one on the way home tomorrow, seeing as the sun is supposed to be out and all that ;)

    You look beaut here, that colour is your bitch!

    And YES. KANYE TILL WE DIE. Everybody needs leather pants. Peace out! J x

  13. I really love this combination! So pretty!

  14. i love the concentration of turquoise in this outfit! it's perfect for summer and kind of reminds me of cool lime refreshers(: personally, i'm not too big on starbucks drinks. mostly because I'm afraid of getting addicted to them like how you described. it's a habit i can't afford haha


  15. Sophieeee, how is possible for you to constantly give me wardrobe, accessory and bewitchingly badass babe envy?! I am totally in love with this cold shoulder trend, the floaty sleeves and cool blue tone look super slick. Also how long do your legs look in those ripped beauties (major figure envy too)?
    Whilst I was poorly singing along to Kanye's killer Glasto set, a companion of mine was tweeting about how her incessant dislike for him.. of course nearly fuelling me to create a bar graph of why you can only love him :')
    I shall too be heartbroken when it is no longer possible to go to a popular coffee chain and order ice in my drink, it seems like for 3/4 of the year I am burning my hands as I neglect to pick up a sleeve for my cup:( Petition to make cool drinks acceptable all year round?? Also feeling mixed about Grimmy being a judge and the loss of the small room auditions - no doubt Simon will have some twists that I will thoroughly enjoy though, Murs' presence being one of them;)

  16. Hahaha love your Lime Refresher comment, as my little sis is obsessed with it too, and drags me to any Starbucks nearby whenever we're in a city (any city really, no matter what the weather's like). So I totally get your obsession, it's delicious :D

    Also thank you so much for your very sweet comment on my blog, you're so so lovely <3 Reading a comment by you always makes my day. I'm not as good as you with words (by farrrr) but I want to say that you're amazin, and that this outfit is truly stunning. Big love for the holo bag (anything holographic really), and love the styling with the minty green colours! Your hat and sunglasses are the cutest accessories too, totally rocking it girl!

  17. This colour is stunning and looks perfect on you.

  18. I had no idea you were such a big Kanye fan! That's awesome. I don't really listen to his music but there are a few songs by him that I really like. Also - I hope that someday when we meet we have a Starbucks together! What can I say about the outfit? You look gorgeous. I actually got a similar top but in white, we'd be matching!!! I hope you're well lovely xxx

  20. Love this whole outfit Sophie, especially that gorgeous top. I am a big fan of the Starbucks Cool Lime refreshas too, although I have to say the flavoured hot chocolates they bring out at Christmas time are also pretty great! x

  21. You are looking amazing as usual! I am getting some major summer vibes here! Just gorgeous! The color of that top is divine! It has to be one of my favorites! And no I haven't had a cool lime refresher only because I'm allergic to Lime's, but if I wasn't I totally would drink them! Haha :D
    And I'm obsessed with that hat!


  22. This is such a pretty outfit! I love your sunglasses too :) x
