Nearly all packed up in Southampton, so I thought I'd venture outdoors and photograph one of my remaining outfits. I can't wait to get back to having all of my possessions under one roof again and getting myself back into action. I'm one of "those" people who has so many things, they have to split it between rooms at the moment! I think I'll be holding a massive blog sale/eBay session this weekend as well, as I have so many clothes that I simply never touch anymore.

(Textured coral peach tunic, River Island;
Leggings, H&M;
Flatform wedges, H&M;
Jacket, H&M;
Necklace, Swarovski.)

I bought this tunic last week to wear on a night out with the Writing Fashion and Culture girls. I hardly ever go out, but when I do, I pretty much wear what I'd wear in the day with bigger hair, a touch more make-up and higher shoes! This tunic was from River Island, and is the sweetest creamsicle coral colour. It's the brightest number in my wardrobe at the moment, but I like that the colour is offsetted with a muted pastel tone and black tubing to keep it from feeling a tad... well, skin coloured! Really looking forward to wearing this with a slip dress underneath (it's a tad sheer!) and sandals, with a brighter belt for the summer, if that old English myth ever surfaces this year.

Today I've been out for lunch with one of my friends and housemates from first year (I say housemate, Heather didn't even live in our flat, she just spent a lot of time at 4A!). I seriously can't believe it's been three years since I moved away from home for the first time! Feeling very nostalgic for first year naivety, Magallen Flat Buckaroo and sambuca-laced bliss, but also more than ready to get out of the Bubble. 

A few to follow today: Michaela, Meg, Jennifer and Monica.

Nominate Daisybutter.com at the Cosmo Blog Awards 2012 for Best Established Fashion Blog? It would make my day!

  4. Love the colour of the tunic, pretty! Ah I have those shoes and I don't know if it's just me but the slight curve of the front of the sole makes it feel really weird when I walk in them - still like them nonetheless! x

    1. Thanks Jade! The photos don't do the colour any justice :P I tried to edit the photos so the colour was as accurate as possible, as they were a little overexposed, but honestly - nicest colour! I found them hard to walk in at first as well, but it just took a night of getting used to (:

    1. Thank you Emma! I'd say they lean a little more towards a wedge than a true flatform, but they're really comfortable and flattering! (:
