daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: what i wore

Skirted top, A boutique in Hong Kong; Leggings, H&M; Crochet kimono cardigan, Topshop; Boots, ASOS.
Hello strangers! I feel completely out of it recently... it doesn't even feel like a Friday to me, can someone wake me up from this terrible dream?! I wore this on Sunday for a day of magazine design, seeing my Granny and going for sporadic drives. Last week, my godmother, who lives all the way over in Hong Kong, sent me a little care package as a graduation present. Inside lived this lovely skirted top, along with a few other pieces that I'm excited to wear: I just need to find space in my room and wardrobe to store everything!

I teamed it with my favourite cosy leggings and that crochet kimono that everyone seems to love or hate. Dressed up with my ASOS boots that are surprisingly easy to drive in, and then I added colour with my favourite statement necklace - a piece that I bought when I worked at an independent jewellery boutique, years ago. By the way, my Aggie boots from ASOS are still available online, despite this particular pair being over a year old now, I believe they no longer sell these in black, but the other colours are still gorgeous.

Today I'm mostly looking forward to getting home and trying to arrange my life into some semblance of order again. I visited the Harry Potter Studio Tour again yesterday, this time with my family, and if anything, it was even better and more magical than the first time. This time round, I only went and bought a wand, didn't I?! (I bought Fleur Delacour's, FYI!) Needless to say, I'm suitably shattered from over four hours of extreme fangirling, and tonight will mostly involve a Nando's takeaway, finishing Aesthetic Magazine(!!), having a good skin pamper, and sifting through the mountainous floordrobe that I've amassed this week. Whoops.

PS. My lip colour is courtesy of Lancome: picked up some lipstick samples of their new Rouge in Love range, and fell in love with Corail In Love instantly. Creamy, pigmented and lasts for well over six hours, I'm probably about to buy a handful of these...

Don't forget to vote for Daisybutter to win a Cosmopolitan Blog Award for the Established Fashion Blog award! It would mean the world to me.

  15. Saw the pics on the previous blog from HP studio tour, if only it weren't only in the UK I could go! LOL, at least they have the HP park inside universal studios (which has the best 3D ride in the whole park imo) :D Also, very cute knit cardigan.

  19. And it's times like these that I wish my family lived in HK or somewhere equally as exciting... rather than rural Cambridgeshire.... Love the top, and you're look super stylish for a down time day.
