daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: flatforms, H&M, SS12

Grey mesh vest, c/o Something Else at Glass Boutique; Floral bra, Intimissimi; Black cord-esque leggings/trousers, River Island; Flatforms, H&M; Rose print scarf, London Fashion Weekend; Pumpkin carriage necklace, c/o Ever Ours; Mulberry Alexa in Petticoat White.
Spied this scarf hanging in my sister's wardrobe and decided I 'had' to wear it today. I picked it up at London Fashion Weekend - the public shopping event after LFW - a few seasons ago and ended up gifting it my sister but I'm forever stealing it when I feel particularly drawn to dressing up in a Disney or Alice-in-Wonderland style. Paired it with my pumpkin carriage necklace by Ever Ours, my favourite beyond favourite River Island soft cord-esque trousers, flatforms and a surprisingly flattering vest from Something Else.

Thank you for all of your well wishes and lovely comments on yesterday's post, girls! I feel like I never say it enough but I'm so grateful to have such amazing readers, your comments really do put a smile on my face. My first day went really well on Monday, although my working hours are super short so it feels really weird to be home by 5pm! In case you were wondering, I am now working in-house at a jewellery company based in London, looking after their editorial and social media outreach. I'm still taking my baby steps with it all, so fingers crossed things work out.

Finally, I'm even more excited to share that I'm now an online contributor to Style It Light, the new fashion platform created by Diet Coke and Look, Marie Claire and InStyle magazines. You can read my first contribution here! It's full of content from the fashion editors and teams over at the mags, but I'll also be sharing some online content on there every so often. It's all come about due to the fact that you guys got me shortlisted for a Marie Claire Blog Award way back in January. Seriously girls, you've made my year so, so nice.

  20. Firstly every time I go on your blog I completely lose my mouse, i'm trying to get to the comment button and I'm like 'where's it gone?' and then suddenly from nowhere it comes floating across one of your pictures and I'm like 'ah there you are you sneaky little mouse' :P Anyway enough of my mouse issues. I wish I had a sister to steal clothes from :P Lovely outfit and I hope the jobs still going well :)

    1. Haha I'm sorry Laura :P can't for the life of me find where I coded the cursor to change it either! I keep meaning to change it for accessibility but I adore how small and cute it is. Thanks sweet, job is going okay so far!

  21. I really like your shoes here, Michelle! They look comfy, as well as giving the all important extra height! (And good heavens, I am desperate for anything that makes me a little taller!) xxxx
