daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: what i wore, wiwt, ootd, boohoo, dipped hem dress, SS12

Floral dip hem dress, c/o Boohoo.com; Flatform shoes, H&M; Belt, Primark; Red friendship bracelet, c/o Dainty Roses; Bunny bracelet, Dolly Bow Bow.
I thought I'd left my floral phase back in first year of University: y'know, when all Topshop stocked were florals? After spending the evening at a Boohoo bloggers' party with Sarah and Aisling a few weeks ago, I chose this dress to take home with me and I'm in love with it. As of late, I've been much more drawn to leggings and trousers, even reverting back to jeans and succumbing to J Crew pixie pant lust, so a perfectly feminine dipped hem dress feels a little out of my depth. I adore the red cherry blossom print, the lace panel on the back and the winningly floaty material, now I'm just waiting for another occasion to wear this to! For reference, I wore this on Father's Day yesterday, when I celebrated Father's Day at home while Dad worked ten hours at our restaurant... (And the Best Daughter Award goes to...!)

Today I'm over in London as per usual, interning and gazing (kind of) at beautiful clothes, shoes and bags for eight hours. It could be worse! It's my last week at InStyle and I've genuinely really enjoyed it, despite finding it hard to settle in and get to grips with the routine. I've learned so much and had a lot of laughs along the way, and it's opened my eyes to new areas of the industry that I'd love to pursue. I'd been hoping to fit in a few more events in now that I'm back in the area, but I'm honestly so tired when 6pm rolls around that I'd be a sleepy unsociable mess! Hopefully this will pass as I love spending time with fellow bloggers! 

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

    1. It's so pretty, the cherry blossom print makes it a tiny bit different to the other florals out there (: they're super comfy and easy to walk in, a little weird to get used to at first, but would totes recommend! xx

  14. This is gorgeous! I love the lace insert at the back, I'm often tempted by those sorts of dresses where the front and back is different lengths, but I can never decide if they suit me! Enjoy your time in London :)

  19. It looks great, lovely that you have kept with the magazine sub style. It;s so fun isn't it?! I loved learning how to code it. I think you suit anything to be quite honest, you're one of those girls that makes anything look stunning. If I didn't love you, I'd hate you xxxx

  24. Love the dress, can't help but think it would look even more stunning with pale canvas wedges or espadrille wedges. :)

    I've never been that attracted to Boohoo stuff. I don't know why but you pull it off really well. :)

    1. Yes, espadrille wedges for sure! I have no idea where mine have disappeared to, otherwise I would've worn them ;) thanks Yin! Their clothes are very much throwaway fashion, but this was so cute I couldn't resist! xx
