Gingham is everywhere at the moment and whether you love it, hate it or sit somewhere in the middle like me you definitely won’t be able to avoid it. It doesn’t make me feel 100% comfortable as I fear it is easy to get wrong. However I’ve not got over the fact I didn’t buy the Lace Monsoon Victoriana Blouse when I had the chance so Im not risking the same emotions over gingham.

This gingham shirt and dungarees are both from Matalan and as its such an affordable brand I thought it would be great to ease me into the trend. Im not gonna like I bloody love it. Si thought I looked American which I obviously took to mean he thought I looked like Angelina Jolie.

I feel more confident to play with the trend now. I absolutely love this Topshop Gingham Skirt which I would team with a white vest and sunglasses because the tiniest bit of sunshine today has made me all excited.

I have picked a few other products I love from the trend. Let me know if you have fallen in love with gingham so we can barn dance together.
