gingham – are you in or out?

Who has jumped on the gingham trend? Are you embracing gingham or loathing, thinking back to primary school uniforms and dreading the idea that one could wear this pattern again?! Whilst I am yet to purchase, I am wholeheartedly embracing all things checked, from table cloths in kitsch Italian restaurants, to trench coats, dresses, blouses and shorts <3 <3

Whilst I’ve been in luuuurve with all things gingham dresses for some time, the launch of Bohemian Traders ‘The Night Belongs To Lovers’ SS17 range which is chock-a-block full of gingham has pushed me to find the best of the best pieces out there.*

This is the original dress I fell in love with…

pre-order peak front gingham maxi at Luulah Belle Boutique $79

However, I don’t think there is a blogger out there is fash land who hasn’t nabbed this frock as I’ve seen it at quite a few stores and they’re all sold out pre-order. That said, I still love, love, love it and will possibly hit ‘add to cart’ sooner rather than later #shhhh

This is Bohemian Traders gingham dress offering…(left)

Gingham Summer Dreams Ruffle Dress $179
Little Party Dress Stevie Gingham Dress $64.95


hellllooooo there one shoulder ruffle, you ARE what my summer dreams are made of <3 I feel I would get more wear out of the first, but the second is just woweeeee…& how are the sleeves on the Little Party Dress number?!

In the gingham skirt stakes, this wrap and ruffle number rates pretty highly I have to say. It is flirty yet sweet at the same time, dress it up with heels and a silky cami, dress it down with a slogan tee and kicks.

Time After Time Skirt by MVN at The Iconic $99
Bohemian Traders Tea Skirt in Gingham $159


Both with ruffles but give totally different vibes. I really can’t say which one I love more!

Not sure if I’m loving the gingham blouse/top thang as much as the skirts and dresses, but Karina of Karina’s Style Diaries is doing a good job of persuading me! They would go perfectly with my latest purchase though, my gunmetal jeans from Motto!
