Gingham - the Summer tartan

Gingham has become my new favourite thing, it's the Summer version of tartan so what is there not to like?

As everything was tartan in Winter (tights, leggings, jackets, socks, bags) now everything is in gingham.

I am currently stuck between saving my money for Uni, spending my money on people's birthdays/mothers day/anniversary, or spending every pound I own on gingham. Yep, it's become a new obsession.

Topshop seems to be going all out on this gingham trend, they even have gingham pants and socks. My favourite item in the gingham collection is the black and white smock dress, I love clothes that look relaxed and comfy and it's gingham so even better!

A lot of the New Look gingham items look similar to the Topshop ones, especially the socks, but they're a lot more reasonable on their prices. I like the cute gingham hair accessories and how you can get a whole outfit in the same gingham colours.

Lots of Love

We used to wait

A few days ago me and my boyfriend went on a little walk to the woods near my house and because the weather was good I decided to make an outfit post out of it.

In these photos I am wearing...

Burgundy Jumper - Topman
Black and white skirt - Cow vintage
Leather jacket - Topshop
Scarf - Peacocks
Tote bag - Page 45

I love that it's suddenly got warmer recently because it means I can wear my leather jacket more! I want to wear it every day forever, I think it makes every outfit look so much better, and it's a lot more flattering that my massive parka jacket. I saw a post on Tumblr about leather jackets improving people's lives and it's getting more and more believable.

I should buy more of these skirts because they're so versatile, and that's my main concern when buying clothes. Cow in Nottingham have loads of this style skirt in all different patterns. I like how they're thin so you can wear them in Summer but with thick tights you can wear them in Winter, you just have to make sure it's not windy..

Tote bags are my new favourite kind of bag because they fit lots of things and are really light and easy to carry. Also, you can put pretty badges and things on them. My boyfriend bought me this one from a comic book and graphic novel shop in Nottingham called Page 45 and if you are in Nottingham you should really go and have a look because it's full of interesting comics, graphic novels and manga. They have books about the art work of Studio Ghibli films which I think are amazing (they have loads of other things too but those are my favourite).

I've noticed that I've forgotten to do the month of photos thing for February so I might start it now, this years going so fast already I didn't realise!

Lots of Love
