What started off innocently enough with this Dolce & Gabanna woven bag (in an attempt to get a bag which isn’t entirely black) has somehow morphed into a fully-fledged gingham theme from all angles of my wardrobe.
I’ve always relegated gingham into the too-feminine category (or — ahem — the 50’s housewife category). That was until I started layering up the smock dress featured above, and then this gingham dress became my default summer uniform (as evidenced on Instagram on multiple occasions). Then I figured why not go all-out and seal the deal with this checkered bikini, also appearing on the ‘gram.
Call it accidental femininity or whatever you want, I’m all about a little gingham style.
