Going Gaga for Gingham- How I'd Style SS14

Hello my loves...

Get a Clue in Blue

Clear Connection Choker- Nasty Gal
Chunky Knit Polo Neck Crop- The Row
Asteroid Nail Polish- KESTER BLACK 
Lipstick- One Direction for MUA Shade 'Rock Me' 
Cloud Clutch- Front Row Shop 
Checked Pencil Skirt- Brag Vintage
Silver Holographic Flatform Sandals- La Moda

So I know it is now pretty late in the day but I missed you guys and felt a sudden urge to communicate! Obviously my way of doing so involved holographic shoes and a super cute cloud shaped purse! Each to their own I say, some people reach for the phone, I go fantasy shopping. Anyhow I have a super exciting wishlist post coming up soon involving a little introduction to a fabulous vintage store called Brag Vintage and whilst picking out my wishlist items I may have got carried away styling this little checked beauty from them. Some might even call it gingham, which I have already seen creeping it's way into the most stylish and fashion forward wardrobes ready for SS14! I also happen to blooming love the trend, cannot get enough of it. Who wouldn't want to dress like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz each day and get away with it, now that was one stylish farm girl. 

 I actually styled this item how I'd style it if it was standing in my wardrobe today all doe eyed and beautiful. As you see I may have made a sneaky Ebay purchase the other week and now be head of heels in love with a Zara polo neck jumper in cream, which I couldn't find on Polyvore so you know this The Row beauty will just have to do. Can't beat a bit of Olsen goodness to set a girls pulse racing. However being the kind of girl I am I couldn't just stop with the conventional jumper/skirt combo, not when see through chokers, holographic shoes and cloud bags existed, so why not throw them all on as well, I'm not picky they can join the party!

I do have to take a second out of my fantasy world though to say that obviously the first choice of lip colour for this ootd would be my ultimate fave pinky/lilac lippy by One Direction for MUA in shade Rock me.

Now we are complete, and London Fashion Week ready should I happen to encounter a tornado and end up there in a dream (totally a legit way into fashion week).  Oh wait maybe then I'd add a pastel blue coat (like this Miss Selfridge beauty I've been eyeing) which I'd wear over my shoulders for that true stylista look?

I hope you enjoyed this little impromptu 'How I'd Style' post? Be sure to check out my Brag Vintage Wishlist once it's up and leave me any trends you'd like to see me style in the comments below.

Until then.
