Ahoy and happy Monday folks!
I’m back with a quick outfit featuring this beaut of a gingham top.
Gingham was one of the big trends for last summer, and it’s still a popular trend today. I, of course, am repping the checked pattern in blue. It’s not just about the gingham with this top though, as it also has statement sleeves with frills on the cuffs plus the actual hemline of the top. The frills add some dimension to what would have been quite a shapeless top without. This top is so very comfy, and I especially love the longer length. It’s definitely worth the $8.19/£6.20 price tag!
I’ve paired it with these navy trousers originally by Whistles but picked up from Oxfam in Manchester. This type of top is usually seen worn with jeans, so I thought I’d try something a little different. I didn’t want too much blue so went for my white embroidered trainers and a cute daisy bracelet. As the sun was out this weekend in London, I got another chance to wear my new blue sunnies that I bought from a little market stall in Cyprus. I’m planning to get one of River Islands many blue bags & purses to finish off this outfit, but which one?
So, what do we think, will the gingham trend be sticking around?
* I was sent this top for free, but rest assured, all words and opinions are my own 🙂
