Daisybutter - Hong Kong Lifestyle and Fashion Blog: fashion blogger, how to style a camel coat, how to wear a flannel shirt Daisybutter - Hong Kong Lifestyle and Fashion Blog: Central District, Hong Kong Soho

UNIQLO flannel shirt; New Look leggings; Topshop KATZ2 cut-out boots; Veeko scalloped hem camel coat; Longchamp Le Pliage tote.
And now for something completely different: Michelle wears a flannel shirt.

I know. I don't believe it either. Something that is just incredible to me is seeing my personal style develop over the 5 years that I've had this blog. From awkward haircuts to the phase of only-dresses-and-coats to establishing a definitive style and transcending to today where I feel I've reached a good(ish) middle ground, it's been quite somethin'!

Had a hankering for a flannel shirt in the early autumn but I found it hard to get on board with red tartan, which just isn't me. Eventually I stumbled across this one from UNIQLO, picked it up in a couple sizes up and it has been worn almost every week since its' induction to my wardrobe. It's so soft and slouchy, and I wore it to the office in the snap above, buttoned to the top, with leggings and leather boots. Also really like it with my strappy white camisole and a pink skirt though. The possibilities are endless!

I've spent the weekend tucked up in bed because I'm so ill. Always the way! But it's also the first weekend that I didn't spend roaming around and exploring Hong Kong, and sometimes you just need some downtime. I think I'm headed out with Sophia this weekend though which should be f u n!

  12. This outfit is gorgeous! I went down the vintage route to find a flannel shirt and managed to find it in one of the vintage shops in brick lane.
    Also, I absolutely adore your posts from Hong Kong

  17. That's exactly what I thought! Finally one that I could get on board with! And it's really loose/soft/flattering too, unlike most that I'd seen (Topshop I'm looking right achta) xx
