Oops, long time no (new) outfit post. Today I broke my personal traditions by a) not posting a photo diary of my week, b) getting dressed in something other than my usual slubby top and leggings Sunday outfit, and c) wearing brights. Something is arife in Daisybutter land...! I kid: today I wore this little get-up to go for dim sum with my family (minus Mum who was, as always, at work).

This fruit-print peplum top is the piece I chose from the Boohoo bloggers' evening a few weeks ago. It's a thousand miles away from what I'd usually wear, but in all honesty, my wardrobe has been undergoing a bit of a shake up as of late. I'm currently in amidst downsizing my clothes collection and sifting things to donate to charity, to eBay and to keep. Anyway, back to the outfit! Threw my sheer peach shirt - unbuttoned - on top to soften the brights on a pretty drab day, and paired everything with a seriously old pair of Miss Selfridge denim jeans. I can pinpoint the exact time that I bought these jeans too! My friend Amelia and I were a little optimistic in our outfits of choice at college a whopping four years ago, and ended up buying new outfits on a lunch break. Oh life.

Also wearing my favourite ASOS boots that are frequently mistaken for Isabel Marant 'Dicker' boots on a daily basis - win! I accessorised with a couple of sweet friendship bracelets, including the latest addition to my jewellery box from Dainty Roses.

Anyway, off to play a couple hours of Maplestory again, pretend to join in Euro 2012 festivities and then to see my Granny and cousins! Hope you're all enjoying the last of the weekend! ♥
