Today I've been a very sleepy girl, wandering around the shops and going for lunch with my Mama. Just another standard Thursday day for us really, my parents each take one day off from work, what with our restaurant, so Thursdays and Sundays always seem to follow a particular routine. I've also been enjoying a listen of 2PM's latest album, 'Hands Up', which came out on Monday, particularly in love with Hands Up, 모르니 and 영화처럼!

(Top, Urban Outfitters;
Playsuit, H&M;
Necklace, Accessorize;
Scrabble mugs, Wild & Wolf;
Button badge rings, c/o Dainty Roses;.)

Can't stop being drawn to wearing playsuits with something loose and slightly sheer on top at the moment. It's still hard to see myself wearing something typically Summery with this weird weather. I quite like the bright purple tones of this top though, makes the burnout detail look effortless and not too see-through. Still adore my drawstring H&M playsuit, I can't recommend this playsuit highly enough to people who struggle to find playsuits to fit their height, torso length, etc.! I wore this out to Brent Cross and food shopping at Wing Yip, along with my Mulberry Alexa, and a pair of Primark tan loafers - keepin' it real as always. Bought some Chinese fashion magazines too, so glad I got 'em, the lady who sells them only gets two of each issue in every month!

I absolutely adore these button badge rings at the moment, can't stop wearing them! Lisa sent me two rings from her newest collection to wear and I love them. The cross-stitch heart design is so unique and feels very eclectic chic, while the crown ring just speaks volumes for itself. They compliment any outfit so well, and are an understated style statement, an outfit oxymoron if there ever was one! They are priced at £3.50 each, and there are lots of designs to choose from.

Thanks for all the sweet messages the other night regarding the things with my best friend. She had a second op and is coming home tonight! Very, very relieved! Also, huge thanks for the lovely words about my Ways to Wear post yesterday, I like to see it as that little bit extra on my blog that sets it apart from the standard "fashion blog"!


  1. thanks for the follow. i've been reading your blog for a while (before i actually plucked up the courage to start my own) and i love your style :) x

  2. I love the button badge rings and your whole outfit in general! The top looks really pretty, I might have to get one for myself!

    I love lazy days and it's nice of your mum to take you out for lunch, yummy!

  3. I'm a sucker for playsuits at the minute also! They're so comfy and easy to throw on! Love the scrabble style mug ;) and those rings are so cute i'm glad you posted a picture of them on because they look a lot smaller in the bottom photo! xxx

  4. Love the idea of putting a top over a playsuit, such a lovely outfit Michelle! :) xx

  5. I love that playsuit! And the tee! I want to make a quite dash into town tomorrow morning to find another playsuit for my holiday [going sat!] - maybe I'll check out h&m :) x

    Becky: I know right! Ultimate lazy girl chic in my opinion! I can't even bear thinking about rifling through my wardrobe at the moment, have amassed way too many clothes recently. Thanks sweet, glad you like them! xxx

  21. Thanks for the sweet comment! and your top is a really beautiful colour, I can't stop wearing sheer tops either I'm not sure why! It has been weird weather hasn't it? It can be so warm but too windy to wear skirts or it's warm but rainy, wish we had our summer now!

  23. I like the combination of your playsuit and top :)

  42. Wahhh, being sick sucks. My mind's all jittered and I can't keep up with blogs, haha.
    Love your outfit here, lovely! The top definitely is a great pop of colour to the otherwise monochrome (but cute) playsuit.
    And oh, I love Wing Yip. It makes me feel a bit homesick for all my mum's Asian cooking though. At least Richard's dad loves cooking Asian and Indian food!
