Here goes…my first solo blog post! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I’ve only just got around to plucking up the courage to do it! Coupled with my severe lack of knowledge with anything technical (quickly calls up Mum who’s a computer genius) and the ‘can I really do it?’ nerves I thought sod it!
It’s really no secret to those who know me that I LOVE shopping or anything fashion related. I love nothing more than a trip to buy clothes for whoever and whatever occasion….any excuse and I’m there!!
So why not channel my passion into writing about clothes, fashion and life. I personally don’t believe in saving some clothes for ‘best’ seeing as I rarely go out on a night I’d never end up wearing them! I dress for how I feel that day and what I m doing. If you have that favourite dress or top you hardly get much use from then wear it! Maybe toughen it up with a leather or camo jacket, trainers or flats. If you have some statement shoes that hide away in your ‘going out’ wardrobe get them out and dust them off, maybe just wear with boyfriend jeans and a simple top or knit for a dressed down daytime look.
My mum says sometimes she feels too dressed up for Tesco but last time I checked Tesco didn’t have a dress code…although maybe shopping in slippers and a onesie is slightly pushing the boundaries!
So with all that said here goes….my first ever blog post and I’ve chosen to feature (drum roll please) Gingham!!!
It’s everywhere at the moment and set to carry on into spring, summer and beyond. I’ve picked out a few bits that have caught my eye…….
Firstly a simple easy to wear top with a nod to the frill trend on the sleeves
I love this from topshop but Don’t be put off by the fact that this top is called mutton! It’s most certainly not! It also comes in light blue
How about this wrap skirt from Zara? Pair this up with a simple tshirt or vest top for warmer weather or a knit or hoody for cooler days
These cute topshop shorts are perfect for topping up the tan (please be kind uk summer!!)
Ticking many boxes with this Zara top off the shoulder ✔️ embroidery ✔️ puff sleeves ✔️
Sticking with Zara.. these trousers are just gorgeous with an added little twist on the sides
I’m also loving (as she clicks buy now) this dress! Just perfect for spring wear and those sleeves 😍 Personally I’d wear this on its own or over some turned up skinnies
Lastly taking the gingham trend down to the feet with these new look loafers
So Hopefully I’ve not sent you cross eyed with all the black and white checks and just maybe tempted you into the world of gingham? (if you’ve not already entered it that is!)
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading!
