Gingham! Is there a print that shouts Spring and Summer more? And its having a real fashion moment this year. Gingham is everywhere!

Now I've never really been a fan, a bit too girly for my liking, but this year, well, I can't get enough of the pretty little squares. 

I've added a couple of gorgeous gingham pieces to my wardrobe and I'm sure they'll be a couple more before the season is out. 

I'll be wearing my gingham with light wash denim and trainers, or dressing it up with splash of colour and heels.

Topshop, Zara & Warehouse have some lovely pieces at the moment which will see you right through the summer months.

These are my high street picks and some style inspo...

A great Spring lightweight jacket. It ticks two boxes with the fab ruffle sleeves.

This blouse is gorgeous & will look great with pale wash jeans or denim shorts in the summer.

Love this skirt & hopefully will be able to track it down for my holidays. It'll be great with a slogan T-shirt and trainers during the day, or dress it up with bright heels and a lace top in the evening.

I have this top & its lovely, definitely made the holiday list. Its sold out online but you might find it in store like I did. 

This trench coat is an absolute bargain in the Next sale reduced from £90 to £30 with most sizes still available.

I love jumpsuits and this one is great.

This  top is a great alternative to the Topshop one if you are unable to find it in store.

Now, I'm not entirely sure this is gingham but I love it, the embroidery & those sleeves! I adore the sleeves.

Thanks for reading.

Trainers, Sneakers and Kicks

Trainers, sneakers, kicks,  call them what you will. I love them!  

This is something of a revelation to me as I was a strictly heels girl, but being a mum of 2 boys, an 11 month old golden retriever puppy (and another on the way) my heel wearing is  restricted to the occasional night out.

So sneakers are my footwear of choice, not much beats a box fresh pair a white trainers, and Adidas Stan Smiths are my go to, timeless, classic and wearable all year round.

I love the way trainers give an instant cool factor to an outfit.  Sneakers can be worn with absolutely anything, dresses, skirts, shorts the list is endless. 

Need to take an outfit from day to night? Easy, just swop your trainers for a pair of heels.

Want to dress down a dress or trouser suit, add a pair of trainers.

There are options out there to suit every taste and budget, these are some of my favourites.

Love, Love, Love these distressed converse, these would be amazing with pretty summer dresses and skirts. 

I absolutely love these, they're patent & come with two pairs of gorgeous fat laces. These are most definitely on my wish list.

These will always be cool in my eyes, I've picked the classic green & white, but these come in so many different colour combinations you can't fail to find something you like.

Another pair on my lust list, I just love the rose gold on these.

A classic pair of converse all stars. Another favourite.
