Daisybutter - Hong Kong Fashion and Lifestyle Blog: what I wore, hong kong fashion blogger, chloe baylee

Strappy camisole, River Island; Flounce hem skirt, Mong Kok Centre boutique; Maxi cardigan, H&M; Metallic pointed toe flats, F&F; Firmoo sunglasses; ChloƩ Baylee.
And so begins the humidity and the heat in Hong Kong.

Whenever I'm in Hong Kong and the heat is unbearable, I turn to the basics. Simple, light, loose and pale coloured pieces, and look ma! No tights ;) After about 3 outfit changes yesterday, I opted for this little ensemble to hang out with Sophia for shopping and food. Ran lots of errands in an unglamorous T-shirt and jeans get-up so I wanted the complete opposite for doing actual things. I think it might be finally time to retire the 90's camisoles that I was obsessed with last year. I can't resist them but it's time for pastures anew. Nevertheless, I popped one on with this flounce hem skirt that I adore - so Dolce & Gabbana SS15! Whipped on my metallic flats that I absolutely adore (they make any outfit feel like lots of thought went into it) and stashed lots of essentials in my darling ChloƩ Baylee.

We actually ended up taking a detour to the Hong Kong Botanical and Zoological Gardens. Completely free, it's a huge garden up lots of stairs in Central, tucked behind the Peak Tram. Managed to hang out with tortoises, flamingos, monkeys and birds, all whilst sweating like a loony. x

  1. You are so on it with outfit Michelle, I may have to adopt this look myself when I go on holiday this summer (or if the weather EVER get over 20 degrees in the UK) Xx
    p.s. totally mumbled 'You and I got lost in it' to myself after reading the title for this lol

  2. I love the cami! I'm sure you'll be needing them loads in the Hong Kong summer. The botanical gardens is one of my favourite spots in Central :)

  3. Eek thanks Ria! I'm on permanent holiday mode with this move, feeling so lucky that everyday feels fun and fresh and not a chore (: and me too! Sang it all afternoon after editing the photos!

  4. Ah thanks Saskia! It's a love-hate relationship as they're technically perfect for the weather but hardly practical as they're a tad too revealing. I can't believe I'd never been before - I'll definitely be headed back with my DSLR!

  5. Such a beautiful setting! I love the hem of the skirt too, so cute. I can't wait for a bit of heat, the weather is slowly becoming decidedly sunnier however the temperature is sadly much the same for now xx

  6. Love this outfit - so jealous of the heat, it is most definitely still tights and coat and scarf weather in London despite it being "spring" now! x

  14. It's freezing here at the moment so I wouldn't mind a bit of humidity either! ;) That top is cute and nicer than your average camisole, I need to keep my eye out for it!
