Pink Gingham








(Top: ASOS (and similar here), Jeans: & Other Stories, Earrings: Mango (similar here), Shoes: New Look (old but similar here)

When it comes to getting dressed up for an evening out, it’s something I often struggle with. I’m going to hazard a guess and say this is because come 7pm I’m normally either;
a) soaking in the bath until it gets cold
b) busy thinking about what to eat for dinner and then running a bath
or c) already in my pyjamas gearing up for Masterchef.

I know, it’s a wild life I lead- but trust me when I say I do enjoy the dressing up process when it rolls around and although I’m certainly inexperienced and a little out of practise, it feels good putting on something I feel wonderful in (even if yes, jeans are part of the equation).

Anyway- I recently picked up this top whilst browsing ASOS and although it was the gingham I fell victim to, it also reminded me largely of an
Isa Arfen top I’d been seeing everywhere- and at a cut of the price, felt like a perfect high street alternative to something I’d been thinking about for a while. On top of that, I’d recently picked up what my dad likes to call my ‘sofa earrings’ from Mango, and pairing them together felt like a fitting tribute to the more is more trend (without going overboard, y’know?) Although things weren’t so subtle for footwear either, I know that this’ll also look awesome paired with some trainers for day time, and already have my Vans lined up and waiting. Perhaps I could get used to this going out malarky after all?
