Gingham: AKA the biggest summer style staple of 2017.

Not only is the picnic blanket print everywhere this season, but it's also had a bit of a modern makeover.

It's no longer just simple checked tea dresses taking over the shops when the hot weather hits (and right now we're talking HAAAT).

Now, our fave summer checks come in a variety of colours and styles (and with some added sassy details - RUFFLES COME AT ME). 

The quote Joey Tribbiani "what's not to like?" 

When I first went summer shopping I was all up for purchasing a gingham dress, however I quickly discovered that it just made me look like a milk maid. Furthermore, I could put my hair in plaits and stroll straight into a school assembly without anyone doing a double take. Considering I already have the awkward task of correcting people on my age (no, I am not revising for my A-levels right now) I thought I'd give that one a miss.



Gingham can also be quite girly. And I am by no means a girly girl. 

Therefore, I decided that a pop of the feminine print in the form of a skirt would be the perfect match for me. I could then pair it with with a band or vintage tee, and some good ole stomper boots to toughen up the look.

Shall I tell you the other thing that was discouraging me from investing in the gingham trend? The price. If y'all think I'm gunna spend £40 on a short piece of picnic blanket you are wrong.


I finally came across this uh-mazing gingham mini skirt with ruffle detail from Missy Empire for £19  - SOLD - WHAT a bloody bargain.




Boots: River Island 
Tee: Vintage 
Choker: Primark 

Ever since I've had this baby in my life I've been wearing it pretty much non-stop. I just chuck on any old tee and my buckle boots or Dr Martens and I'm outta there.

Dare I admit it, I'm actually rather enjoying the girlie vibe. Plus, it's a well needed change as nearly everything I ever wear on my bottom half is denim, denim, denim and yep you guessed it, more denim.

So, if like me you want to give the gingham trend a go but not spend a small fortune scroll down and I have compiled all the best gingham skirts that won't break the bank.

You know sometimes you just want to dress like a sassy mother f*cker and don't give a sh*t what other people think? Well, this is one of those moments.

It all started with these boots from Ego Official. Although over-the-knee boots are nothing new, we all have at least one pair (mostly of a suede variety, with a block heel - trend circa 2015).

However, it recent season's they have literally and figuratively gone to NEW LEVELS... Say hello to thigh-high boots!

Inspired by Vetements and Balenciaga, the avant-guard trend has caught on with celebs, including Rihanna and Kendall Jenner rocking the impractical footwear.

I was feelin' the vibes so thought I'd give them a whirl. Would I wear them day-to-day? Absolutely not, unless I wanted to permanently walk like I've shat myself (these boots were not made for walking the streets of London girls).

But they do look badass AF, so I will by all means wear them to a party that I can Uber too.

Boots: Ego Official* 
Striped Skirt: Motel Rocks*
Jumper: Missguided 
Chain: eBay 
Hat: Camden Market

Secondly, this skirt. OH MY GAH it takes me right back to my goth/ scene kid days. It just needs to be paired with my Paramore fan club tee and I'd be back at Reading Festival in 2010 haha. Side note: If you havn't listened to Paramore's new album. DO IT... NOW.

Me living in a hat? Nothing new here. However, thanks to Bella Hadid my headgear of choice is now a baker boy hat, and it has rather a nice story behind it.

 I had friends visiting from Copenhagen, so I took then to Camden market (hadn't been there in FOREVER). Anyway, a nice man on a hat stall helped me find my perfect size, and as I didn't have much cash (who carried cash nowadays!?) he gave it to me for a bargain price because he said it suited me. 

Faith in humanity restored. 

He was quite a elderly man and so sweet that I gave him a hug, his kindness had me smiling all day.



Lastly, if you do have the balls to wear these boots out OUT, take the bus babes.

Until next time.

Cya,
Sabs

Because nothing says 'summer' quite like being dressed like a pack of skittles....


20 rainbow buys that will get you SO ready for summer

Because nothing says 'summer' quite like being dressed like a pack of skittles....




A classic denim skirt and sassy slogan tee is a girls summer staple.

There's no question about it, whacking on the simple (yet stylish) combo is WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER every dayumn time.

This season, the addition of fishnets is also advisable, which I'm totes up for. I've even upgraded my normal fishnets to a larger scale and have ones with diamontes on for when I'm feeling like a party party.


Skirt: Bershka

The Denim Skirt

Every year there is always one 'it' denim skirt style. Last year it was the A-line skirt with buttons down the front (come on girls, we all had it).

However, this year the must-have style is more of a vintage look, with distressed bleached denim in a classic cut becoming everyone's firm favourite.

The skirt immediately gives any tee a edgy and effortless retro vibe, and means you can literally throw on any tee/ shoe combo and it will look UH-MAZING.

Also, if you want a more jazzy style, forget about embroidery. Skirts are now being decked out with pearls, studs, ruffles, frayed edges and contrasting denim panels. SO 2K17.


The Statement Tee

Every season I treat myself to a new fun tee, mainly because I just can't bloody resist.

Although my T-shirt draws (yes plural) are now overflowing I could not leave this Bershka tee in the shop.

Why? Well, firstly it was only £4.99!

Secondly, the front boasts a red phone number with '(missed call)' underneath. It's more chic than my usual tongue and cheek tee's but it's still eye-catching and cool, so I thought I'd give simplicity a go.

It was only when I got to the till and they turned it round that I saw the bold red writing on the back stating, "EXISTENTIAL EMERGENCIES ONLY."

This made me chuckle, not only because of the phrase but also because I had even gone and tried it on in the changing rooms and still hadn't even noticed. IDIOT.



So, without further ado here are my top skirt/tee picks. 
Oh and psssst ASOS have a offer on: 


Offer: £10 off £75, £20 off £125 and £30 off £150
Codes: YASSS10, YASSS20 and YASSS30
