Today I've mostly been avoiding human contact and frolicking in the sun. As a strong ambassador for autumn, I've surprised myself by constantly waking up in a good mood because of the warm weather in England at the moment. My wardrobe is definitely not up to scratch though - look at all of this black in today's ensemble. Bought this sheer, pastel blue shirt a few months ago to wear to Zoe's Rockalily ZOMG party, and cracked it today with my Zara skirt and mix and match nails. I love wearing tops half-tucked into these skirts: the front pulled tight-ish, and the back pulled out for a flattering silhouette.

These sunglasses are my new summer staple. I don't tend to wear sunglasses as I usually forget them and have an uncanny knack of throwing them in bag, only to crack them soon after. I can be such a klutz... Romwe kindly sent these to me a couple of weeks ago and I spied them in a box when unpacking, but their cat-eye shape has meant they've quickly become a go-to, over my old faithful H&M's. Also threw on a few rings and bracelets, and my Golden Snitch necklace, because no 'Michelle' outfit would be complete without some oddball additions, eh?

Finally, I got my Glossybox June edition - their anniversary box - and it's a good one. I know there is a lot of aminosity towards the beauty sampling game, but I'm honestly yet to be very disappointed in a box. Currently in love with both Lolita Lempicka perfume samples, and this Weleda night cream!

Looking forward to a night of good ice-cream, bad TV and better Maplestory playin' tonight: it's my last weekend before throwing myself into full-time interning/working in Central London, so I'm trying to savour the freedom and slowly plan outfits for the week ahead! 

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

  10. Such a lovely outfit! My wardrobe is not well equipped to the summer weather! I started The Great Gatsby last year and have yet to finish it (it's not a big book either!) but I'm determined to finish it before the movie comes out!

    1. Thanks Hannah! I'm really excited to keep reading, it's got quite a slow opening which isn't helping in the heat - I can't concentrate at all. D'aw thank you lovely, super nervous but the magazine is one of my favourite UK publications (:

  17. You look lovely, really liking your sandals :)
    The sun has definitely put me in a better mood but I'm with you on the wardrobe thing, I have no Summer appropriate items. I'm thinking it's time to search for a couple of nice dresses, a skirt and a new pair of denim shorts!
    Hope you enjoy your last weekend before interning starts! x

    1. Thank you Erin! I searched high and low in Southampton, London and Cambridge for them before finally finding a pair in my size - typical Primark ;) they're such a good Kurt Geiger dupe though! Oh yes, it is absolutely dresses and skirts weather now (:
