The Gingham Obsession

Vero Moda Mini Gingham DressPhew!  I think I'm only just coming out of the chocolate-blur that inevitably occurs over the Easter weekend.  I'm still working my way through a butterscotch chocolate egg (it's like heaven - in egg form) and reminiscing the slow-pace that comes with Bank Holiday weekends.  But I'll stop looking backwards now, especially with such gorgeous days ahead, filled with bright colours and warm evenings!  Speaking of bright colours, I've continued my love for gingham with this pretty little mini dress, pairing it with black and gold accessories to avoid looking as though I'm on my way to the beach.  Roll on warmer days...

Ciate Cookies and Cream Nude ManicureAfter years of being obsessed with gingham prints and struggling to find them anywhere, I'm thrilled to find them arriving in masses to, well, everywhere!  The key to wearing the print without looking too tame, is finding contrasting accessories.  For this look, I've opted for all black-and-gold accessories, including my favourite pointed cut-out boots and fishtail necklace.  My favourite element of the look?  These new-to-my-wardrobe Ray-Ban sunglasses from Sunglasses Shop.  The double bridge ensures the gold metal framework pops against your face, and when mixed with other gold accessories, pretty much makes my heart skip a beat!

  1. I love gingham, I bought a lovely pink gingham coat last year but sadly it wasn't to be (looked great on the online model, looked like a school cleaning bib on me) but I'm really looking forward to trying this trend again this year... Let's hope I'm successful as you because as usual, you look fantastic :)

  2. I do enjoy gingham, but due to it being so hard to find I don´t own a lot of pieces.

  9. I agree that the contrasting accessories really help make this look standout. I love the cut of the dress though on you! I haven't thought about gingham before really but now I think I might have to rethink that.

  32. You always look so gorgeous Gabrielle and especially like Gingham on you here, and in this pretty red colour.

    Your Ray Ban sunglasses really suit the look, and you look ever so stylish indeed. Your black hat suits you nicely too and creates an overall lovely shape to your Summer look!

    Nicely styled.

  42. I'm not sure if it was the same at your school, but when I was younger and it was summer, all the girls used to wear gingham summer dresses so the pattern always reminds me of good memories and summer!

  45. THat is a lovely gingham dress! I really like the black accessories with it, a different take on the usual spring-like colours you see with gingham, but it works so well on you :)

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :) We are definitely eating too much chocolate still after Easter, haha.

  54. I am a fan of gingham, and one of my favourite dresses is an Asos black and white gingham midi dress! Red gingham looks just as amazing though. This dress is super pretty and it makes me want to try out red gingham for myself!

  59. I was so good over Easter! I didn't even eat one chocolate or piece of candy haha. But we also don't really celebrate Easter too much, as all us 'kids' are now in our mid and late twenties haha. My mom did send me an Easter gift card in the mail. Loving this look on you! I am not a huge fan of Gingham, but you can definitely pull it off Gabrielle!

  76. I am so excited by the amount of gingham that's everywhere at the moment! I've already got a tonne of gingham in my wardrobe because it's my favourite pattern to wear, so it's great that so many new options are popping up. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect red & white gingham dress like this one but so many of them are sold out already.
