Check Smock Dress – Topshop / Maroon Hat – Topshop / Cat Face Bag – George at Asda / Brown Brogues – New Look / Frilly Socks – George at Asda / Chain Necklace – H&M
I love this outfit and realistically if I wasn’t such a lazy dresser when I’m at home and mega inner tomboy I would dress like this all the time. But I guess making the effort occasionally with different styles and inspirations taking over keeps my wardrobe and style fresh. Plus, it’s never as boring picking something to wear in the morning or for an occasion as I always make out when I’m constantly complaining about having nothing to wear, despite my full wardrobe and need to buy lots of new clothes every single month.
Talking about buying clothes, the dress, hat, bag and socks are all brand new purchases and the shoes and necklace are only 3 months old in my wardrobe, so this is a pretty new outfit all round for me. The dress is pretty perfect really and I’ve been after a checked/gingham style dress for a while now that was a little different to what everyone else is wearing as we all know gingham is the huge pattern for this Spring/Summer. The slightly muted tones makes this ridiculously wearable with everything from plain tights, patterned tights or bare legs, cardigans, jackets or blazers and any colour and style of shoe will work easily with this too.
Here I’ve paired it with the maroon hat I bought from Topshop’s recent sale, where I also bought the dress, some brown brogues, cream frilly socks and my cat faced bag. This bag really is the cutest thing I have ever seen and purchased, I saw it in the Asda magazine and knew it had to be mine. It’s quite small compared to a lot of my other bags but I can still easily fit in the basic essentials such as my phone, purse, eyeliner, lipstick etc. For only £8 it’s a total bargain as well and further proof that supermarkets, specifically Asda, have really upped their game recently clothing and accessories wise.
I love this outfit and I know it will be perfect and a favourite for this Spring and Summer and it’s something that will easily see just as much wear in Autumn and Winter too. Will you be sporting gingham as your pattern of choice this season?
