Gingham Checks and Grey Sweatshirt

Grey Gingham and Sweatshirt Outfit
Bullet Choker Necklace
I still can't believe that we have slid into 2016 already and this is going to be my first fashion post of the year. I thought I couldn't start it off better without my most loved comfy side of my wardrobe where loose fits, oversized items, sweatshirts and stripe tops all come together. So this particular grey sweatshirt from FOREVER21 is incredibly comfy but not entirely a winter sweatshirt. It doesn't make you feel very warm but definitely can be layered up with coats and jackets. I prefer that over really warm sweatshirts because the weather can be really erratic here. It can be really pleasant with no cold at all and there could be sudden cold winds chilling you to the bone. This one's perfect for any kind of weather. The little red and cream accent collar gives it a cute vintage look. 
Now onto the pants, the Gingham print is something I wouldn't mind having every type of clothing in. So to find these really well fitted, high waisted gingham print cropped pants from MISS SELFRIDGE was wonderful. I have never owned anything in grey gingham up to this point so I hadn't discovered the whole illusion of wearing white pants that these give when seen from a distance. They fit well, feel good and are absolutely great for 'I don't want to wear jeans' days. To add back some colour into this monochrome look, I got out this cute Burgundy cross body bag which definitely fits more than it looks like it can and some burgundy lips to go with it. The dark lip and winged liner looks great with my grunge choker necklaces as well!

  2. That second close up photo of you is so stunning! I love comfy outfits too, they're the best. I just had to laugh when I saw your trousers, I love them, but my mom once came home with a pair just like it and my dad said "what did you buy? it looks like a kitchen towel" so every time I see white and grey checked pants I have a little giggle ;) But I love the outfit! Keep the lovely post coming!

    love,
    Margot

    1. Thank you very much, Margot! Haha! Dads are always like that. They never really understand the fashion we like. I know Gingham is predominantly a kitchen print but it's got such a cute vintage feel to it, I can't help but buy things in the print.xx

  8. Forever 21 is great for basics such as this sweat-shirt and I really love how you've teamed this together with those trousers. Great look!
    I think I'm going to need to head to both these stores and find this.
