daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: what i wore, breton stripe, SS12

Breton striped vest, Hong Kong Market; Black corduroy trousers, River Island; Aggie boots, ASOS; Red scarf, c/o J Crew, Illustrated leather necklace, Ella Masters; Bouncing bunny bracelet, Dolly Bow Bow.
Evenin' ladies!

Today I've had quite the busy, town-hopping day. I popped into London to get some things ironed out and run a few errands, got a teensy bit lost, ventured over to my parents' restaurant back towards home for the afternoon, and then to a docs' appointment! A manic Monday, some would call it, but I'm so glad to be home and snuggled in my pyjamas awaiting some dinner (yep, bloggers wear pyjamas behind the scenes screens don't you know?!).

So! Onto the clothes! I found this Breton top of mine just chilling out in my sister's wardrobe last night and knew I wanted to pair it with my new J Crew scarf. I feel quite 'classic British' in this look, and paired it with my mini trench coat from H&M, unpictured, just to reinforce that whole look. Red is a little outlandish for me, I've always felt it doesn't quite suit me, but it's the luckiest colour in Chinese culture, and I definitely needed a touch of that today! Popped my Ella necklace underneath it all and attempted a couple of Enrapture curls (1-3-2!), which pretty much dropped the moment I stepped foot in London. Ah.

  14. Love this look, it's like a mix of British cool & Parisian chic with the stripes :)
    Curling my own hair is such a pain atm, mine keep falling out as soon as the damp humidity hits it ¬_¬ (British weather I do not approve of you!) It's taking a lot of hairspray to hold mine in lol xoxo

    1. Mm that's how I saw it too! ;) ahh I've just given up now, going with the natural look so as not to waste time! Hope you're well lovely! xx

  15. This is so cute!I love the fit of the trousers on you. What really caught my eye on my dashboard was the bright splash of red from your scarf. I actually love wearing red because of what it means in our culture. If you play around with different hues of reds, you'll eventually find one that works well for you, though I think this one already does ;)

    1. Thank you Alyse! These (and my printed trousers) are my favourites at the moment, so comfy and flattering (: I feel like I don't wear red enough, and really wanted to start embracing the colour more!

  16. I love your scarf Michelle! I definitely need to get a bunny bracelet too! xx

  17. :O How could you think red doesn't suit you? I think it does. It rarely suits anyone in big folds of it. It's such a contrast to not only your clothes but the background behind you
    Lovely xx
