Little Gingham Dress
I’ve always had penchant for monochrome but recently this love affair has grown and I’ve been lucky enough to introduce a couple new monochromatic gems into my wardrobe.
Starting with this little gingham dress. There are so many reasons why I love it, from its vintage vibe, gingham print and finally the fit.
Its hard this time of year, its not warm enough to ditch the layers (just yet) then we have a couple of days of warm sunny weather where it’s too warm for a leather jacket. It was one of those warm days yesterday, I while out for a walk I had to take my leather jacket off as I was over heating. Then I’ve woken up today to grey Skys and a drop in temperature. It’s a mind-field getting dressed I never know what the weather is up to on the daily.
When choosing what to wear in these ever changing temperatures I opt for a midi dress – now I’ve ditched the tights since January, which I know won’t be for everyone but I just hate wearing them. I often find my legs don’t get cold as long as the rest of me is layered up. Wearing jumpers and a hat to keep the heat in if it’s a particularly chilly day. To me, midi dresses are perfect for transitional dressing. They can be layered up if needed and can be the perfect statement dress when worn on its own. This little shirt dress could be layered with a polo neck underneath for the colder months (plus worn with tights if you so wished) and with ankle boots, then ditch all that for the summer.
This dress has the perfect vintage vibes, its giving me all the Audrey Hepburn feels and I am here for it. I felt good in this dress and I’m sure you’ll be seeing it a lot more over the warmer months. I have ideas for styling it with statement bags and summer sandals. For now my espadrilles are out as it’s not quite open toe weather just yet. I am in full spring mode and the straw bag has made an appearance and I’m hoping the sunshine comes back so it can get some more outings. I may have sprung a little too early but I am excited for more sunny days and summer styling.
