Hello all! I'm back and blogging after a whirlwind few days of attending lipstick launches, blogger bashes and morning meetings. Oh, I do like a little alliteration. I think I've finally recovered from train journeys, and in even better news, my new camera tripod has arrived, which means I'm free to snap away at outfits to share at my own pace and in my own time!

daisybutter - UK Style Blog: what i wore, sheer shirt, drop hem, topshop, winter style

(Sheer drop-hem shirt, Topshop;
Heattech camisole, Uniqlo;
Corduroy leggings/jeans, River Island;
Suede 'Aggie' boots, ASOS;
Striped cardigan, Topshop;
Coat, Topshop;
Necklace, c/o Maria Allen Jewellery;
Deathly Hallows tote bag, from the amazing Abby!)

Showcasing my love for the High Street today, with some old and new favourite pieces. Sunday saw me have a little bit of a panic-shop session in town: I snapped up this baby blue sheer shirt from Topshop after featuring it a day before on my blog. So pretty. Wore it with an essential Heattech top underneath to brave the icy weather, and my cord jeans/leggings which remain a current favourite of my wardrobe!

I wore this outfit to the #ZOMGbloggersbash on Monday, easily the most talked about blogger launch party for the gorgeous vivid pink lipstick launched by Rockalily with Zoe. It was such a crazy night, and so perfect to kickstart the blogging year with some of my blogging favourites, and to meet others that I'd wanted to meet for ages! A few of us (namely Victoria, Hayley, Abby, Steph, Hannah, Faye, Sarah and Emma!) even went for a pre-party at Vapiano's to get the evening started! Needless to say, finally meeting Abby was a life-changing moment for me: I've been talking to her since the very, very early days of both of our blogs, and she is even lovelier 'in real life'. I mean, just look at the bag she kindly gifted me?! Was also amazing to see Emma and Lily after a million months of being apart/being woken up to assist Emma and her Harry Potter life decisions(!)

The rest of my Thursday looks set to be devoted to defrosting from spending my day outside in a wannabe North Pole, working out ways to get my Mum to send my Glossybox over to me without her realising what it is and promptly stealing my samples, sorting out the content analysis for my dissertation, catching up on the Law lecture notes from Tuesday and getting my finances in order. Whew! Roll on the weekend, eh?

    Why am I always missing out on the greatest-ever blogger get-togethers?! I can't even go to the LDN Lunch because I'm going back to Aus! Boooo! Oh well, you looked really lovely - I love how the stripes look with the stoney colour of your jacket! Also, Deathly Hallows tote? WANT.
